The front entryway to your home is called the Mouth of Chi because it is the place where nourishing energy enters your home. Even if you normally use a different door, you should make it a point to use your front door at least once a week. If you go in and out through the garage or another door, most of the time, the chi around the front door will get stale.
Here are some ways to increase the energy around your Mouth of Chi:
Turn on the exterior light beside or over the front door for a few hours every evening, which will help to attract chi to your home and keep the energy strong.
• Make sure that your doormat is clean, that your doorbell works, and that any metal features such as a brass knocker or house numbers are polished and shiny.
• Increase the interior lighting in a dark entryway; make sure to turn it on for at least a couple of hours every day.
• Potted plants beside the front door, especially blooming varieties, are a good way to enhance this area.
• Anything that gets in the way of the front door is a Feng Shui no-no, so please don’t use the space behind or around it as a storage area no matter how convenient it may seem.
*A wind chime hung beside the front door or at the top of your porch steps will help to disperse any negative or overly strong chi before it hits your front door.
