What if Your Home was Built Wrong?

The way your home was built can create a number of problems in Feng Shui.

The main problems are:

An Incomplete Floor Plan

An incomplete floor plan (not a square or a rectangle) can give people the feeling that their life is not complete. When someone feels their life is not complete, it’s easy to come up with excuses for why they aren’t happy, instead of making plans on how to become happy.

Excesses and Deficiencies

Excesses and deficiencies (anything in the home that is “too much” or “too little,” like long hallways, and staircases with no landing) create a space that is out of balance. This makes it easier for your life to be chaotic. You find yourself constantly juggling the important things in your life, instead of giving each the time, energy and care they deserve.

Circulation Problems

Circulation areas (paths) in your home are defined by how the front door and the back door relate to each other, and also their relationship with hallways, staircases, and large windows.
If your home wasn’t designed to have good circulation, there’s no flow. This makes it easier for you to feel tired or fatigued.

What architectural features exactly create these problems?

Here are some examples:

  1. A staircase facing the front door.
  2. Front door facing the back door.
  3. Front door facing a large window.
  4. An L-Shaped floor plan.
  5. A C or U shaped floor plan.
  6. A steep staircase with no landing.
  7. A long and narrow hallway.
  8. A foyer with a double height ceiling.

You don’t have to remodel

Feng Shui problems that originate with the way your home was built are not your fault and they can’t be fixed without expensive remodeling. However, they can be corrected with simple Feng Shui cures, such as:

  • Mirrors.
  • Landscapes.
  • Quartz crystals.
  • Faceted crystal balls.
  • And more.

    I have stairs which face the front door, which points downhill. Also, when you come in the front door, you can see directly into the back yard. I have had much bad luck in this house.
