Today’s ‘Marooned Without a Compass Day’ might be worrisome to those who embrace the Eastern or Traditional Schools of Feng Shui, since those schools figure out the Feng Shui of your home by using the compass and by locating the cardinal directions in your living space. However, we ascribe to the Western School whose teachings don’t require a compass, but instead employ a fixed map to outline the energies in your interior. One of the ideals that both schools agree upon is the importance of the formal front entryway and how having that space properly ‘Shui’ed’ can bring fortune and luck right to your door! First, clean up any clutter that might be keeping that front door from opening fully. Clean the actual front door itself and, if possible, paint the door red (for luck and fortune) or green (for positive and profitable growth). Replace the bulbs that are immediately inside and outside the front door with the highest wattage that you can find. If you are unemployed and looking for work, you should turn those two lights on everyday for nine straight days for at least three consecutive hours a day. Then send out energies and resumes. That cure works like a charm, as does putting a red flowering plant outside and to the left (as you look from the street) of the front door. Hanging a nine-rod metal wind chime in that same place will garner increased income opportunities, as will a clean and colorful welcome mat. Lastly, under that welcome mat should be a red envelope that holds nine crisp, brand new one dollar bills, as well as 49 shiny new pennies. Keep it there as long as it’ll last with the knowing that this ‘secret’ Entryway Shui cure brings coin and cash to the household, as well as happiness and joy. So screw the compass, do any of these adjustments or cures and opportunity will be sure to find its own way to you without stopping to ask directions.
