In recent years, all of a sudden started talking about feng shui. It turned out that in our apartments in general is not so: the door to the room located opposite the window, bathroom architects, as luck would have tried to schedule the most important areas, have in the kitchens, as before, arranged the furniture along the wall, and the owner simply can not physically stand facing the entrance. But the owners of holiday homes have a chance to arrange everything by the rules.
Mountain - required!
Related article: How to improve the Feng Shui ApartmentAncient Chinese sages believed that properly laid out the area around your home - a pledge of luck, wealth and health, and wrong - the reason for failure. The value has everything - the shape of the tracks to the flowers growing on the beds.
For example, the entrance to the house and the front should look to the south, east or south-east. Then all the household can not be afraid for his health, and they have a better chance to succeed in everything that they will be taken. But disengaging side - not the best option.
It is very important to "spin" the house was protected by a mountain. That is, of course, it is clear that the mountains in our area are rare, so come down and fences, and solid construction, running along the border, at the worst - the tall trees. But the front of the facade will be very useful pond of irregular shape, and the gate should be easily viewable from the home.
Treasure under the arc
Login to the site also executed wisely. Gate or gate should "invite" the positive energy in your estate and meet the time: too narrow or too wide entrance spoil it. By the way, the obsession with arched doors, which is observed in our country the past 15 years, completely justified. The Chinese are advised to round out the gate, so that they looked like a rainbow - a symbol of "Heaven's Gate." The more you pass under the "rainbow-arc, the more you fill the power of luck. Is it bad? Our ancestors also not a stranger to symbolism: they hung over the gate of the bells to be ringing drove away evil spirits, horseshoes (note the arc of the form!), And in the ground at the entrance to bury a pot of coins, that wealth does not leave the house. Among other things - a good gift to posterity and to some great-grandson, varmint did not sell you built the family nest (nice to know that a hundred years you will remember at least for this structure) - compose a family legend about buried treasure.
Color - a theme
True, the colors, which recommend the Chinese sages, depending on the direction of light - not too traditional for the suburban villages, but when you buy paint you can find what you need. Thus, the southern gate should be red or green, the south-western - red or yellow, Western - white or yellow-brown, the north-west - in white or metallic colors, north - dark blue or green. The same applies to the flower garden, except that in the south and east can be planted any flowers, more importantly, that they are not prickly, well, of course, if you're not a fan of extreme sports and did not believe that changes in life to be suffered.
Flowers play a big role. Located near the entrance or along the tracks, they can not allow to seep into the house of bad energy, which is positive and circulates around, but he loves, oddly enough, the direct path and running out on the winding and long ...
Roads, like a boom
Suggest to abandon the strict planning, when the paths do not want to go and march, minted step. Paths should be a little wiggle, beckon, bewitch. Believe it or not, but the truth of one of the principles of Feng Shui has been verified by me personally in practice. Under the project the main entrance to my house is located on the front, right in the middle. Ten years ago, of course, of all Chinese "subtle" one never heard. Therefore, deciding that the path from the entrance should lead into the house directly, rather than a roundabout way (and the material on it then take much less!), Arranged neatly in front of the wicket door. Since then, the door that we use very rarely seem to uncover her wide open - and something bad will break there. But to the back door, from the end - his legs are responsible.
Transfer gate to the side - the case for me, the decision. And it would not have this bug, then I read that line a long path has a negative effect on the object, which is located at the end of it. True, the Chinese are wise to offer an antidote is located along a track beds or ornamental shrubs, which would divert eyes away from a straight line (in my case it did not help).
99 examples of the harmonious arrangement of your home
Winds come from the sky, water press oneself to the ground, winds, water (in Chinese feng shui) is constantly accompanied by the people, their dwellings and graves. By force, wind direction and speed, as well as the height, speed, length, width, depth, water flow may depend on the joys and sorrows, happiness and misery of man. In Chinese geomancy wind meets heaven, earth and water.
The importance of wind (air) and water for human life is well known, is also aware that they needed, and can bring misfortune to their destructive effects.

Chinese culture is geomancy, a component of Chinese culture played a significant role in the development of the latter and can be of great benefit to those who mastered it.
The purpose of this article - to teach the reader to determine the beneficial and harmful at first sight. Here are only general principles, discussed in more detail in other publications. But to not write in books and whatever you say others, all need to check on their own experience.

2. Real Estate can not build on the T-junction, as well as at the intersection of streets. That is, before the house should not be a street, running straight at him, otherwise the poor can not even count - in the first place, it's high winds and fires. If you're not lucky, then aimed directly at the house street can lead to the fact that the house will collapse and people die. Latent effect is also largely negative: it can lead to injuries, losses in business.
