Dear Uncle Dixer: How do exterior plants at the front door improve Feng Shui Chi?
Answer: By definition Qi is matter and potential at the same time. If we can improve the environmental quality of the front door with some attractive plants, then we can improve the potential and the likelihood of something more pleasant and more fortunate to enter the house.
Attractive plants have living Qi (Sheng Qi) and they can make the space come alive and feel welcoming to the visitors as well as the occupants approaching the front door.
Qi is improved because the quality of the matter is improved and they could lead to more desirable potential and tendencies to come to the home’s occupants.
But we need to bear in mind that this is not definite and not automatic. Bad things do happen but by giving meanings to a task we can create positive feelings to encourage us to do better.
