Main door of the house is known as the 'Mouth of Chi'. The house absorbs energy or Chi through the main door. Therefore, it is very important to have a good main entrance, which attracts high levels of energy to improve the life of the occupants. To ensure this, you need to follow the Feng Shui tips and guidelines laid down for a receptive main door. There are a number of considerations like the material of the door, the color of the door and the direction it is facing. These parameters are to be considered and set right. In case the door of your house is facing south, you need to paint it according to the element of the same direction.
The element of South is fire, so paint the door red, orange, purple,
strong pink, etc. You can also use green and brown colors associated
with the element of wood, as it breeds fire. Another wise decision you
need to make, along with the main door, is the protection of the back of
the house. This will help the house to hold the energy it absorbs. For
instance, the back of the house facing south will be towards north.
Thus, you can paint the back door of your house in blue or black color.
This is because these colors are representative of Water element, ruling
the North direction.
Apart from this, one also needs to take care that no architectural
feature hampers the energy flow into the house. For example, if there is
a staircase directly facing the main door, it poses a problem in the
distribution of free flow of energy and leaves the main door with less
energy in comparison to what is required. This can be prevented by
placing an art, strong colors, a big plant or a vase of flowers,
specific pieces of furniture or mirrors. However, do not place the
mirror directly facing the entrance, as it will push all the energy out,
before it enters the house.
