When renting or buying we can end up with a good a bad Feng Shui home.

First Impression

There are great homes, good homes and not so good homes. These either have great Feng Shui, acceptable Feng Shui, or in some instances, negative Feng Shui. 

Positive living experiences are much easier to create in a good home, than in a home where you are battling against its negative influences.  

The quality of a home is not only determined by its looks, but also by its underlying energetic pattern, its feel. However, most of the time when deciding on a home, you won’t have the luxury of a Feng Shui analysis.

The most important thing you can do is to listen to your first impression. This is your knowing of what is right – or not. 

However, here is what often happens next if a home is not quite right:  You start ‘thinking’. You might have been ‘looking for a long time’, or ‘It has all the rooms and bathrooms we wanted’, or you ‘If we don’t get into the market now…’ These are thoughts justifying why you should buy/rent it anyway. 

From my experience, your first impressions are more often than not right! If you follow them, most of the time you end up with naturally good Feng Shui.  

It tends to be the homes where people violated their knowing, that the Feng Shui is not great. These can be adjusted, but are more difficult to make right. And that is something you are going to live with for the next few years. 

When looking for a home, make a list of what you want, but also include on this that it should be right for you. 

Some general situations to avoid

  • Being located at the end of an oncoming road as in a T-intersection. The traffic here ‘heads straight towards the house’. You are constantly under attack in such a place. (Living in a cul-de-sac can be great as long as you are not directly attacked by the road.) 
  • A very irregular shaped piece of land, such as a triangle. For stability the land should be rectangular or square – unless it is very large and you can square off a section for your home. 
  • Long straight corridors. It is better if people can gently meander through a home.
