Why Is It Important in Feng Shui to Have a Curved Pathway Leading to Your Front Door?

Laura Cerrano

Looking to the Form school of Feng Shui, the observation in regard to how fast or slow a body of water was moving, in what direction and even how it eroded the land; all played a factor in locating a good place for homes to be built upon.

In modern day times, you could say the same concept still exists, only with a more urban and suburban perspective. Bodies of water are now translated into the design of sidewalks, streets, driveways and private pathways leading to your front door. 

Including a curved pathway and even driveway design that gently approaches your front door is more desirable than a straight pathway. The energy flow (represented by water and in modern designed pathways) has a chance to be more controlled with its movement vs rushing straight into your home. 

It's a Feng Shui design principle to strongly consider if remodeling the outside of your home or before construction. 

Is it Important to Feng Shui My Attic?

Laura Cerrano

Question: I read decluttering your home is an important step in the Feng Shui-ing process. I wanted to know, should I also declutter my attic? 

Answer: Yes. When assessing a home with Feng Shui, consultants take into consideration the compass directions, date of birth, the five elements and/or Ba-gua map life sections. In the practice of Feng Shui, objects of past and current ownership carry a positive or negative energetic charge. Or in other words, Psychologists refer to this as "emotional memories." 

Objects displayed throughout your home and stored in the closets, attic and basement could disclose a greater effect on your conscious, unconscious minds and emotions.  In general, it's best to start Feng Shui-ing the attic by decluttering. After the those changes have been made, it makes it easier to decide the function of use with the attic. That will help indicate what additional Feng Shui cures are best to implement. For each person, this will vary and at that point it would be best to consult with your local Feng Shui Expert.
