Feng Shui brings into focus spatial conditions we may not see or perceive as an opportunity or potential problem. Believe it or not there are several suggestions when considering the Feng Shui of your stairs, especially since its function is to move the vital life force called chi from one location to another. And today, we will give some of them. While you cannot control the placement and shape of a home’s staircase, you can divert the energy the stairs interrupt and prevent it from fleeing the home. The stairs that empties out through the front door allows good energy to tumble down and rush out. Think of all your money flowing down from your wallet on the dresser and out the front door. If you’re in the process of building a home, move the door away from the bottom step of the stairs.
If it’s impossible to move the front door, feng shui practices have other suggestions for redirecting the elusive energy. Hanging a crystal between the bottom step and the door is often suggested, but more studied feng shui masters recommend installing open railings on the steps themselves. This allows the chi to sift through the balustrades and spread its good energy, both up and down the stairs. Then, Feng shui is about encouraging good and positive energy. If there’s an empty space below your stairs, use it to fill up the empty air. Tucking a money box into the space is considered good feng shui because it helps attract wealth. Luggage encourages travel. Lining the space with books helps promote a writer’s life.
