In Feng Shui, buying a home or building a new construction home has many positive benefits. It is my preference to build a new home as you have all the advantages of selecting the facing and sitting direction of your home to align with your personal KUA number, favorable direction, home type (money home or happy people home), color selection, bagua map location for every sector of your home and more. That said, you can apply the same feng shui methodologies and theory to a home that has already been built too with it’s limitations.
As a Red Ribbon Feng Shui Consultant, there are many factors I suggest for my clients when building or buying a new home. Here are some key considerations for anyone looking to leverage feng shui theories to ensure they are buying the right home that is most auspicious in order to enhance health, well being, love, money, and good fortune.
Sitting and Facing Direction:
The concept of a home’s sitting and facing direction originates from the traditional feng shui school. In feng shui, the sitting direction of a home is the back of the house and the facing direction is the face of the house. A home can have eight feng shui directions for the facing direction. There are many aspects for consideration when calculating your facing and sitting direction of a home and at times it will require many readings to get the right calculation of your home. A home with a strong sitting direction provides strong backing for you and your family.
Feng Shui Energy Map:
Your home has it’s own energy map which shows where the positive and negative chi “energy” reside in your home. When applied properly, you can shift, enhance or remove the negative chi in each of the 9 sectors of your home. And yes, decluttering is an important aspect of energy flow in your home. With every space, there are also poison arrows which every home owner should be aware of. The principles of feng shui for your home is most important for your kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, work/study area of your home. Improper placement may lead to bad energy flow that can be disruptive for those residing in the home.
Home Color & Decor
Once you know your sitting and facing direction of your new home and the energy flow map to your home, you can leverage color and decor to enhance positive chi and destroy negative chi in each room and your overall home. Proper decor and color placement will help you align specific areas of your home that is connected to your love life, career success, social status, children and creativity, personal growth and more. Improper use of color and decor may also be harmful for your overall energy and personal development.
