simple shui tip: invite energy to linger

when a front door and back door (or big window) align, this creates a “bowling alley” effect for energy. imagine a ball of energy entering your home. without interference, it will cruise right down the *alley* of your home and exit out the back.

in shui, we consider this a challenge because it means incoming energy – think: job, love, +/or life luck – enters your life and exits just as quickly. left unchecked, you might notice the consequences — opportunities coming and going before you can act on them. so, here are a few quick tips for slowing that roll so you fully reap the rewards of what comes your way!

TIP ONE: play with your flooring options. change up the *runway* between the entrance and exit. the contrast (example: rug to hardwood floors) will slow energy flow favorably for you.

TIP TWO: make an irrefutable first impression with a focal point that refuses to be missed when entering your home. bright colors, larger-than-life decor, or something beautiful (like flowers) are pros when it comes to grabbing the eye!

TIP THREE: create a bread crumb trail of visual candy. lead the eye from one beautiful thing to the next, and energy will follow its cue. a brightly lit lamp to a fabric wall hanging to a well-curated shelf. entrance the energy from oooh to ahhh through your home, okay?

TIP FOUR: use lighting to orchestrate the energy from room to room. have a lamp on in one room; let natural lighting flood the next; +/or use bright décor to set the ambience in another. think of these subtle shifts as a guided tour through your home!

it only takes a few intentional shifts, and all incoming energy (read: opportunities!) will linger longer, nourishing you and your home!
