When decorating your home, it's important to pay attention to even the smallest details that could help enhance the flow of positive energy. Sometimes it's easy to take your doors for granted, since they are such a common part of everyday living. However, don't forget that doors are also the primary means by which energy can enter and exit your home. As such, spending a little bit of time enhancing your home's doorways can reap big benefits when it comes to positive energy flow. Here are just a few of the many ways you can increase the amount of positive energy in your home, simply by making a few enhancements to your doorways.

Assessing the Door's Location

Location is a very important factor to consider, especially when it comes to exterior doors. The front door's location can actually help to define the kind of energy that enters your home. For example, a door that faces east can be a major entryway for positive chi energy. A door that faces northwest tends to be an optimal location for those who are raising a family. It's also a good location for those who are looking to develop a stronger leadership role in their life. However, a door that faces northeast can sometimes have the opposite effect. To minimize this effect, try painting the door a glossy white to reflect more energy. If your door faces west, this can be a positive force for romance and pleasure in your life. However, a south-facing door can be an isolating factor for a home. In order to minimize this effect, try hanging a shiny wind chime or perhaps paint the door red.

If you happen to have a door that is facing in a less than optimal direction, don't despair. There are things you can do to help enhance the flow of positive energy, even if the door is facing a different direction than what you would prefer. For example, if you currently have a lot of brush or untrimmed shrubbery around your door, do a bit of trimming. Just as is the case with people, positive chi energy will have a better chance of entering your home easily if you maintain a clear and uncluttered pathway leading up to your door. Positioning a pot of brightly colored flowers on each side of your front door can also be a great way to enhance the flow of positive energy into your home.

Inside the Door

In addition to enhancing the landscaping around your doors, it's also possible to increase the flow of chi energy by making some changes indoors. You should always try to keep the area directly inside your doorways neat and tidy, without any visible clutter. This technique will welcome positive chi energy into your home, while also ensuring that you're not blocking the energy as it enters. If your door is facing in an undesirable direction, try using high gloss wall paint in the entryway. The reflective surface of glossy paint will help to deflect negative energy, thus minimizing its ability to easily enter your home.
