A Tree's Chi
I want to purchase a home but notice
that there is a tree directly in front of the main door.
I know it is bad because the chi of the tree overwhelms
the house. Can we cure this besides chopping it down?
Can we place a mirror above the front door to deflect
the chi? What can I do?
So many feng shui books scare the
living day lights out of you about bad chi. First I need
to clear up what is chi and when it can be bad. Chi
describes how we feel about the surrounding environment.
We absorb the environment through our senses. We see,
feel, hear, smell and touch. When these are limited or
offended in any way we feel less alive and consequently
often don’t’ reach our maximum potential. Consider
how you feel outside as compared to inside. The full
sensorial input experienced outside feels so much more
satisfying than the limited amount received inside. The
sun’s warmth, the intermittent sounds of birds and
animals and the scents of whatever is growing or around
add to the pleasure of being alive. Inside there is far
less chance for this kind of stimulation.
Thus when leaving your home if the
tree blocks full visual access or is offensive in any
way to you senses it diminishes you and thus impacts on
Should that tree feel negative for any
reason here’s some things to do:
- Redirect the exit path from the door
and turn it to face another direction
- Hang a door chime on the door and
stimulate hearing which compensates for the blocked
- Position a birdbath or hang a wind
socket to either side of the tree to stimulate seeing
that instead of the tree. The eye seeks out movement
before a stationary object.
Hope you can implement one of these
