“Use these tips to enhance your financial prosperity.” This month, we are focusing on how to increase financial energy with these feng shui approaches!
Emphasize the element of water.
Money is water in feng shui philosophy, so utilizing a water element such as a fountain or fish tank in your home is essential to increasing wealth. The front entrance of your home should be welcoming and feature an easy flow to the inside. So adding these water elements to the front entrance can attract more financial success.
Find the money area of the space.
Locate the money corner in your space which is positioned to the left, diagonally across from the front entrance. There are some nuances to this, but generally it can be found in this location. The traditional corner is located using the Bagua (you might need a professional to help you with this aspect). There can be multiple money corners, one representing the house (larger structure) and one in each room. The master bedroom is the most important money corner and should not have any excess clutter.
Display symbols of wealth.
Store change in a glass bowl in your wealth area to create the image of abundance and wealth. Also, do not remove money from the jar and make sure to keep adding more change over time. Allow it symbolize that you want the finances to keep growing. Make sure the jar has a lid or cap to prevent the change from accidentally spilling out.
Keep the kitchen and plumbing well maintained.
The kitchen is the feng shui heart of the home and the source of true wealth. The kitchen should be free of clutter, and all appliances should be in working order. Most importantly, the plumbing should never leak and must be repaired as soon as a problem is detected. Leaking water is literally leaking money, so this needs to be suppressed as soon as possible.
Follow these tips, and you will begin feel a shift in your bank account! Does feng shui excite you? Stay tuned to this feng shui column for announcements about video blogs on how to feng shui your space for life.
