Fengshui shop in the Shopping Mall
Although it is not possible for any builder to build a shopping mall strictly as per Vaastu they can still resort to the usage of Feng Shui as a protector and goodwill collector of their shopping mall. When it comes to shopping malls, the right application of Feng Shui can bring quick and immediate results. Better Feng Shui energy in a retail space will attract more customers, more sales and a better mood for the people who work in the store.
The energy of your mall is felt even before customers decide to enter, so you should start applying Feng Shui by first stepping outside your mall and taking a good, fresh look at your front entrance and your immediate surroundings. According to Feng Shui it is important to create a strong and clear flow of energy to your front entrance as a strong flow of Feng Shui energy is created by a strong and clear presence, which includes a clean, crisp mall name, well lit and fresh window displays, as well as by using appropriate colours for the Feng Shui direction on your main door. The important thing to understand is that you need to create pathways for the Feng Shui energy to flow; you need to direct the energy to create a pleasant experience and draw the customers in, then help them explore by themselves what you have to offer. Locating your desk or cash register in a powerful FengShui spot i.e. in a commanding position which is usually diagonally from the entrance is also a powerful method to invite Chi into the mall.
If one intends to build a loyal customer base then your name has to be known to your customers. Being inside a mall and not knowing where you are is a bad Feng Shui experience. Creating good energy in your mall is also of pivotal importance, so one should be mindful of the quality of air inside the mall, one should have several levels of lighting and good music too should be soothingly played in the background. One should avoid having a mirror directly across from your entrance as mirrors can often be a two edged sword.
Furthermore, the most important thing one can do for the mall is to get rid of all clutter. Making sure your display cabinets are sparkling clean and organized is also an important prerogative. Keeping everything dusted and the floors clean is also important. Dust and debris make chi energy stagnant and slows the flow of business. One should also make sure that the name of the mall as inscribed on the signboard is easy to read and is directly over your front door or close to one side.
Lastly, any lights that don't work need to be repaired and any burned out light bulbs should be replaced immediately. Placing an exterior light on either side of your entrance door helps in the entry of positive Chi. The lights have the ability to attract Chi energy to your business.
