...your chi will run out the door?
I usually either do the traditional cure of hanging a round, lead-cut, clear crystal ball somewhere between the bottom step and the door. I also run red tape or something else red across the bottom step or hang the crystal ball on a red cord (to bounce positive energy) and with the intention that your Chi will not cross the red line and go out the door.
Place a symbol (or pair of symbols) either side of the base of the stairs that represent protection to you. Solid objects will help to impede the flow of Chi out the door. When there is no room to do this, consider a mobile from the ceiling to help circulate the Chi.
Stairways need to be well lit, wide, with high ceilings. It is always best to have the bottom few stairs at a right angle (90 degrees) in relation to the front door.
I hope this helps some....
