Paths are connecting forces. They’re ‘rivers’ that bring qi (energy) into a home. The way paths move and the state they’re in indicates a lot about how much qi can enter a site and the quality of that qi.
Paths represent our journey in life. Are they clear? How do they enter a house? All of this is essential to consider when looking at the energetics of a place.
Ideally, paths should bring energy to the front door of a home by meandering slowly in. Paths that are too direct can ‘shoot’ the energy into a home too fast and wash the energy away or create a ‘sha’ (inauspicious energy).
