The entry region also serves to be a place where all sorts of clutter accumulate. There are shoes, coats, and bags of things ready to go off to contribution, bags of trash, mail and parcels, the list goes on and on. This forms stagnation and closes off your portal for good energy from accessing your home. Moreover, your ignorant mind sees this clutter every time you get into your home. It’s not calming, and it creates tension.
Appearance of the Main Door
Get rid of any sharp or pointed things directed toward the main door and watch out for structural details that create Vastu challenges. If your main door is aligned directly with a different exterior door or window, place a Vastu faceted crystal ball or a part of furniture halfway in between the two.
A wall or staircase directly followed by the front door and less than five feet away forms a block in positive energy. You can clear up the energy by directing the focus to the right or left of the wall or steps with attractive objects like colourful fresh and fragrant flowers or a dazzling piece of art.
Brighten up the Main door
