Applying Feng Shui Principles When Buying A House

fengshui1If this is your year to buy a house or any property, consider applying feng shui to the purchasing process. It may help channel good energy into the financial investment.
Auspicious feng shui means excellent energy that brings not only harmony into a home but also good health, happiness and prosperity to its occupants. To assure the right choice of property, certain elements need to be studied before the purchase. The location, neighborhood and lot placement are the critical points to consider.

In feng shui, the real estate notion of location takes a deeper meaning as it deals with the quality of the energy entering a home. To have the optimum chi enter the property, the surroundings should be a “clean” street, free from pointed structures or sloping land behind the house.

In general, a homeowner wants his house to have breathing room with a backyard that is slightly larger than the front yard. Ideally, the property will look better with a good backing like a mountain behind facing a river or stream.

Very important

The front door is very important in feng shui as this is how the house or building will receive its chi or energy nourishment. In analyzing the floor plan, the other elements to position are the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms.

After reviewing the challenging feng shui areas for 2014, here are some tips to harness the potential of yearly flying star energies and use it for best feng shui in your home or office. I got a lot of interesting tips from on home feng shui articles.

As a general advice, be sure to have the feng shui areas with the yearly 2014 beneficial stars brightly lit, and with fresh yang (active) energy. Clear the clutter in your space on or before Jan. 15 to allow new energy to enter.

Please note that in order to apply the annual feng shui updates you have to know the bagua of your home. In 2014, the Chinese New Year (Lunar New Year) starts on Jan. 31. It is the feng shui year of the Wood Horse. The feng shui cures should be in place by Feb. 4.
The South sector area is one of the luckiest feng shui sectors in 2014 with the annual star 8, the Wealth feng shui star. Fire feng shui element colors, such as red, pink, purple, orange and bright yellow, are all good in the South feng shui area of your home or office because they support the Earth element of Star 8.

Enhance wealth energy

Of course, these colors are inherently good for South bagua area with its governing element of Fire, so if you have your home or office decor based on feng shui bagua requirements, there is not much change you have to bring, color-wise, to this bagua area. Because this is the location of the annual Wealth star, you can also use specific crystals and stones to enhance the wealth energy, especially amethyst, citrine and pyrite.

The fortunate purple 9 star in 2014 is on the North sector. It is a Fire feng shui element annual star. Be sure not to put down the Fire element of this star with Water feng shui element items, such as the colors black and blue, big mirrors, actual water features or images of water in the North area. This can be a bit tricky as the main feng shui element of North is Water, so one must be mindful about creating a good balance of elements.

It is also good to avoid a strong presence of the Earth feng shui element here as Earth weakens Fire in the five feng shui elements interaction. Good vibe items like candles, fresh flowers and happy images would strengthen the happy potential of this auspicious area. Work with the number 9 to multiply the benefits. For example, you can have an arrangement of 9 red or purple candles, or an image of 9 pink flowers.

Nine Chinese coins are also welcome here in 2014, as well as various designs with the very auspicious mystic knot. Another traditional Chinese feng shui cure-the crystal tree (in fire color crystals such as amethyst or citrine)-can go well here.
