Feng Shui Principles: Consider Geography When Buying a Home

Feng Shui Principles  Consider Geography When Buying a Home resized 600The old real estate adage, “Location, location, location,” means even more than just what school district your new home is in when you apply Feng Shui principles to your home hunting efforts.

The geography of the land, including mountains, hills, and running water near your property greatly affects the chi and Feng Shui of your new home.

Let's look at some basic Feng Shui principles that pertain to geography.

A home with a mountain view: If a mountain or large hill is directly in front of your property, this can lead to you feeling blocked in your endeavors. It may feel as if there is a giant obstacle in front of you every day.

A home with a mountain behind it. A mountain or tall hill behind a home can provide a sense of protection, almost like a large tree behind a home. How does it feel? Does the mountain feel imposing or does it add a sense of protection?

A home with an entrance lower than the road or other houses - A home in a valley, where the entrance is lower than the road and even the neighbors' homes sit higher, can create low chi. The low energy in the home may mean that the inhabitants have a feeling of stagnation. Avoid this if possible when you're buying a new home.

A home with flowing water nearby. A home with flowing water, such as a river or stream, is typically considered good fortune according to Feng shui principles. You may pay more for a home with a water view, but you may find the investment in your future worth it.

Let’s talk about it. What else do you need? How else can I help? What can I clarify?
