People try to get rich or just try to get more money through various means. You may have heard that feng shui is a popular method used especially by the Chinese to attract wealth into their lives. They go through a lot of trouble to ensure that their homes and even businesses are done according to good feng shui designs. These people do not mind to go through some trouble to enhance their luck or chances to increase their wealth. Feng shui is earth luck according to the trinity of luck, tien ti ren (heaven luck, earth luck and mankind luck). Applying feng shui therefore means activating your earth luck working with your surroundings.
How do you increase your wealth luck with feng shui?
Firstly, you can display auspicious symbols of wealth and prosperity like the gods of wealth, Fuk, Luk and Sau. Literally translated, their names mean wealth, affluence and longevity. A popular deity used a lot in businesses is the laughing Buddha. Another common symbol is the three-legged toad or frog with a coin in its mouth.
During Chinese New Year, popular symbols used are the potted lime plants signifying wealth luck, the pineapple fruit indicating that good luck is coming and the potted jade plant symbolizing great prosperity. Secondly, you can activate the southeast corner (representing the wealth corner) of your living room. Get a sailing ship laden with gold and precious stones (normally fake ones) for displaying.
You can also use water features to activate the southeast to attract wealth luck. This complies with the theory of the productive cycle of elements where water produces wood and the southeast being a wood element.
Having a fish or water motif or painting on the southeast walls of the living room is also recommended. This is one reason why miniature fountains are so popular with the Chinese as are fish aquariums. If you happen to have a garden, you can also activate the southeast corner by installing a small fish pond, water fountain or water fall. Would you believe that your sleeping direction can also have some effect on your personal wealth? You need to know your â€œKuaâ€ number first. For example, my kua number is â€˜1â€™ and I belong to the east group which means that my wealth orientation is the southeast.
So, I have to position my bed so that my head is pointing to the southeast direction when sleeping. At the same time, I can also ensure that my rice cookerâ€™s source of energy is position correctly to come from the wealth direction, the southeast. For those who want to go a step further can activate the number eight Water Star in the Flying Star Chart of their homes. This article is too short to go into details here. However, you can deepen your knowledge by reading more on the subject by famous authors like Lillian Too and Joey Yap.
