Many people prefer to create oversized doors, windows and fishponds within their homes or properties in the hope of harnessing good energy. The common misconception in Feng Shui is, that the bigger the entry point, the more wealth one is likely to amass. Architects are advised to build out of proportion entry points and create massive windowpanes. The design of the garden or entry to a home sometimes revolves around a huge fishpond. But is this necessary?
Like everything else in the universe, Feng Shui is also about proportions. Building everything in proportion to each other does not throw the energy off guard and things seem to flow more harmoniously. If the building or a home is of small size then the entry point should be appropriate to suit such a structure. And vice versa - if the structure is massive then the entry point needs to suit the requirement.
Places of worship are normally built with massive entry points or doors. This has less of Feng Shui significance and more for convenience. Hundreds of people normally visit such places and so to accommodate all of them such arrangements are made.
Restaurants, hotels and commercial establishments also prefer to have big doors or walkways to boost business and movement. This is acceptable in Feng Shui and is seen in many hotels around the world. But one must remember that having a good Flying Star or good energy at the entrance is required to make such an entry point useful. Otherwise, these modifications have no use or meaning.
It is always advisable to check the Flying Star energy within and outside your home before building or buying a home or an office. Based on the calculations, and the size of the property the Feng Shui Consultant can guide you in regards to the size of the door.
The size of the fishpond should also be in proportion to the property. Too large will create strong energy, which is sometimes not required for smaller properties.
Feng Shui is all about proportions and managing energies. So before you knock down your old door or window or create an oversized fishpond, look at it with a fresh pair of eyes.
