Your front door represents how energy (and that means, money, relationships, and health) arrives into your life. The entrance to your home allows everything you’ve ever wanted to flow right in. So, if your entry is cluttered, this will restrict your flow and limit the opportunities coming to you.
Clutter anywhere near your home’s entrance, either outside or in equals struggle in your life.
Let’s take a fresh look:
Walkway: Check for branches and shrubbery hanging into the walk that keep you from having a clear access; clip them back so there is no restriction. Also, look for junk (you know, gardening items, toys, bikes, hoses) that blocks the path and remove it.
Porch: If you have a porch keep the steps clear, regularly sweep, rake, or shovel (yep, the s*** is on it’s way!) Add beautiful plants or a wreath as a welcome to all who enter.
Doormat: Find a snazzy doormat that matches your personality, something with bright colors (Especially RED!!!! It’s very auspicious at the front door). And at the first sign of rattiness, replace it! Because EVERYTHING matters.
Your doormat is figuratively and literally the message you’re putting out to the world.
Save these for Halloween only:
Think about color and/or a generously sized mat, something beautiful, for the rest of the year:
Front Door: Is it in good repair? Is it a beautiful color? Does it attract your eye from the street? And then once you’re inside, does it open freely? Check behind the door to make sure there is no clutter back there!
Foyer: Once you’re in the door, do you have to fight your way past coats, boots, shoes, umbrellas, or other junk? If you do not have a hall closet create one with a bench that stows gear in baskets underneath and install hooks for coats. This helps keep the area neat and creates a place for everything. Think about your specific needs first before you purchase...that means EDITING coats, gloves, umbrellas, hats to keep only the ones you love (or need).
Now that you’ve taken a tour of the entrance to your home, what will you do to make a difference today? Pick one of the ideas above and get started!
