front gateI pass this gate often while walking my dog. There is something so enchanting about it. What a sweet entrance to a property – I love it. It makes me feel calm and happy.

Take time to appreciate the experience of coming home.  How does your home’s entrance or the gateway to the property impact you? Is there an easy flow of qi up to the front door? Do you follow a gentle winding path? Is the path to your front door well-lit and easy to find? Are there trees and flowers to greet you? Think about how you can improve your experience of coming home.  My daily experience takes me down stone steps, past beautiful trees and flowers and a view of Mount Tam. I feel calm and relaxed by the time I am at the front door and excited to see my dog who is usually right there to greet me. The goal is to feel uplifted and excited to come home every day, for home to feel like a sanctuary where you can rejuvenate, refresh and relax.
