With the current Coronavirus crises affecting most of us in one way or the other, many of us are making the most of the fall in real estate prices to buy that coveted home. Shivani Adalja tells you all about general Feng Shui guidelines to follow while buying a new home.

Buying a new home is a no small matter. Some people pool in their entire life savings to fulfill their lifelong dream. Before they take the plunge, many aspects are to be considered. Budget and location are the focus during the selection process. If it is a large family, then everyone must agree on the decision. In such a scenario how does one implement feng shui so that everyone is benefitted?

There are some general form school feng shui rules that apply when purchasing a home. Let’s look at few guidelines that can help you make the final decision when buying your new home.

Never pick a home that is at a major intersection or sits at a T- junction. These locations have a lot of fast-moving energy that can cause havoc with the health of all the residents. It is recommended that you choose a home away from the main road tucked at the end of a quiet street.

However, it may not always be possible to find such ideal location. Therefore, if you must choose a home near the main road or a T-Junction then ensure you have tall trees or a huge garden separating the home from the main road.

Always pick a location away from graveyards and hospitals. Both these locations have yin energy which is not ideal for setting up a home. properties directly opposite these two locations should be avoided at any cost.

Picking a location near a water body is considered to be good feng shui provided the water body is not too close and is congruent with flying star feng shui calculations. A water body has a lot of active energy if it is moving water. Stagnant water body can have yin energy and should be avoided.

A home with a proportionate layout, garden or open space and loads of sunshine generally tend to have good feng shui. Do not pick homes that have too many pillars and are odd shaped. Uniform shapes and gentle flowing curves are highly recommended.

Once the ideal location and design has been picked, feng shui for the interior layout can be implemented for a balanced environment.
