Feng Shui and Wealth
In the Western school of Feng Shui which uses the bagua orientation of your front door, the sector associated with wealth is located in the far left quadrant of your building or property. The bagua is a helpful guide I use for the preliminary assessment of a project; however, in authentic Feng Shui, wealth has no specific geographic location, but rather is influenced by many factors. Surrounding landforms, compass directions, neighboring buildings, date of construction and use of the space all impact your activities. But there are some practical things you can do to help attract abundance to your life.
Here are a few tips to help you on your way:
- Water is associated with wealth in Feng Shui, so check for water and energy leaks in all pipes, vents, ducts, faucets and hoses.
- Make sure your stovetop is clean and in good working order, as this is where opportunities come to you.
- Include artwork that evokes abundance such as blooming vegetation, moving water, healthy looking people and animals. Arid, vacant or sparse scenes will send the universe the message that you are not prepared for prosperity.
- Arrange furniture in your building so that ch’i can flow freely around rooms. Open corridors provide a path for energy to circulate.
- Light darkened area of your building or property with spotlights or lamps that shine upward to help lift energy there.
- Clear your clutter. Full closets, drawers, bookshelves and cabinets indicate that there is no room in your life for abundance since you already have everything you need.
- Share your prosperity with others. By distributing wealth in your community, you are not only creating economic opportunities for others, but opening a new door for blessings to find you.
Wishing you prosperity and good ch’i,
