I still recall when I was a child… at my grandmother’s in the country, we all always came in through the back door, a store room where we had to step over and around all sort of boxes and dirty wash-in-the-waiting before finally accessing her kitchen door.
Her front door was permanently locked and the only odd door knockers would occasionally ring the door bell. I must admit that the energy in her place was very stagnant and clutter was everywhere.
When you get in and out of a home from the back door only
-> You are missing out on opportunities!
On the other hand, entering the front door is so much more welcoming!
Let’s compare your home with your body… Your entry is your smile.
You can easily imagine what your back door corresponds to… 😉
Your mouth is where you eat and drink = your entry door where Chi enters
Your eyes help you see = your windows
Your breathing = your ventilation, air-conditioning and chimney
Today have another look at your entry, wash your windows, remove unnecessary items and furniture blocking the light coming through windows and clean up A/C filters and chimneys.

So true, often in England you are led throhg the back door and it does not feel right. I usually get disorientated. I finally start with reading your book, as I had too much on going before, and I am looking forward to it. Thank you Roseline. 🙂
Yes I have found that weird feeling when you visit someone’s house from the back door, and a permanently locked and blocked front door. What was the effect on your grandmother’s life to have her home this way, do you think? I once lived in a small country cottage and the official front door was facing the grass yard, farmer’s cow paddocks and hills, in the middle of the veranda. Originally people would have to walk across a creek bridge, cross the side yard, walk under the veranda (past our bedroom french doors) until they got to the front door. Our friends always came in the back door because the driving entrance was “behind” the house. We renovated and landscaped and the back door became the front door. The old front door became beautiful french doors walking out to a stunning view. And you know, we had a fabulous 5 years of life out there; financially, spiritually, socially, and with family. I still dream about being in that home.
