Feng Shui is a Chinese traditional discipline which studies the way in which human beings co-exist in harmony with nature. Feng Shui is basically composed of two words Feng and Shui which literally mean wind and water respectively.
After establishing the harmony between wind and water along with other three elements in any premise whether it be residential complex or a business premise we can ensure the perennial circulation of Chi energy. As we know that the balance and equilibrium of all the elements ensure the continuous flow of positive Chi which brings about peace, happiness and prosperity.
However, in the present scenario due to the space constraint, it is not at all possible to arrange all the sectors according to their representative elements. In such a situation, Feng Shui provides us many ways by means of which we can enhance our luck.
Here are the important tips which may bring about all the desired success, peace, happiness, prosperity and harmony:
The Chi energy enters the house through the front entrance. So, it must be taken care of properly. Keep in mind the following things:
- Remove all obstacles such as shrubbery, objects, furniture etc. from the entrance.

- Remove dead plants, trees and shrubbery alongside the pathway of the entrance.
- Trim and neaten up the yard.
- Keep sidewalks and entrance swept and clean.
- Replace worn out doormats.

Staircases can cause the Chi to rush through the front door and upstairs depriving the first floor of positive Chi. Hence, the following precautions must be taken before the planning of construction of staircases:
- Don't place a staircase directly across from front door entrance.
- Don't make staircase cramped and narrow.
- Don't place a bedroom door that opens directly into a staircase.
