Feng shui is considered an ancient art and science, but that does not mean that modern technology cannot help with the practice.
A friend of mine told me years ago that, before she sold her house, she took pictures of each room, so she could get an objective view of what potential buyers would see when they visited the property. By looking at the photographs, she was able to notice details, and defects, that she otherwise would have overlooked by being so familiar with the rooms.
What you can see objectively about your home is what others will subconsciously think about you, and also what the flow of energy tends to follow. If your front path seems blocked or forbidding, guess what the energy will tend to do when it approaches your home? That's right, it will probably turn the other direction, reducing the level of aliveness and opportunity that flows to you.
This week, take a few photos of your front door and inner entrance, to get an objective view of how you are, or are not, making yourself available to opportunity. Looking at the details in the pictures, imagine that you did not know who lived in the house, and ask yourself this kind of questions: "What types of people probably live here? Are their lives probably abundant, happy and energized? Or, do they probably feel blocked, frustrated, and depleted?"
If you like, you can also show the pictures to someone who has never been to your home, and ask them the same questions. You might be amazed at what these pictures reveal about how you have opened yourself, or not, to opportunity and abundance.
You can then take photos of other rooms of your home, not just to find out if the rooms "look nice", but rather what they might say about you as a person.
Of course, if the photos reveal conditions that are not attracting the best energy and opportunities, it is time to get to work. Think about ways to treat these areas on an aesthetic level, to make them appear more attractive and welcoming.
