MIRROR - Feng Shui Tips Invite Wealth Into Your Home by Chat Alejandro
Lillian Too, world-renowned Feng Shui writer and founder of the World Of Feng Shui Boutiques,
describes Feng Shui as an ancient science whose origin goes back at
least 3,500 years ago. The practice of Feng Shui has its roots in the
Chinese way of viewing the universe where everything categorically
belongs to five (5) basic elements. These elements take on implications
of positive (yang) or negative (yin) energy or "chi".
Feng Shui is neither a religion nor myth. Its simple philosophy
contains the promise of meaningful abundance, prosperity and happiness,
and its practice in a modern context requires an understanding of its
fundamentals, access to its various formulas, and sufficient experience
that allow for meaningful and correct interpretation of its guidelines
The word Feng Shui means wind and water. It is also the science of
choosing a living surrounding where the elements and the energies are
harmoniously balanced, thus bringing good life to those who inhabit
that surrounding. Likewise, it is also an art or skill obtained from
experience and common sense – the skill of arranging one’s living and
work space to further strengthen this vital balance and harmony.
says that mysticism somehow envelops the practice of
Feng Shui. To understand the numerous precepts, she further explains
that one needs to accepts the basic theories about the universe which
may seem strange in the context of modern day perceptions of the way
the world works. Descriptions of landscapes and environments are hidden
in symbolic representations. Metaphors adhere to classical and mythical
Chinese references to animals, elements and the intangible forces of
yin and yang energies are reflected in the ancient roots of this
In order to let wealth and prosperity come to your life, you must
first cleanse yourself and your surroundings. In doing so, you should
let go of your “excess baggage” (i.e. bad feelings, negative thoughts,
ill intentions). Likewise, declutter your work and/or living area of
junk. Put those useless things away by discarding, recycling or giving
them away to those who may find them still useful like old clothes,
furniture, books, shoes, etc.
After cleansing, ring a bell or singing bowl and put a small bowl
of rock salt on the de-cluttered area. If you wish to invite wealth
into your home, office or business area, de-clutter, cleanse and purify
the southeast portion or corner of the room, office or store space. The
southeast is the sector for wealth, prosperity and abundance, according
to Lillian Too. With the help of a compass, map out this portion of the
The Chinese have been applying Feng Shui for thousand of years to
correct afflictions and enhance good energy in their living spaces and
surroundings, as well as bring them good luck and wealth. Lillian Too
shares some tips and pointers from the World Of Feng Shui on how to attract prosperity and improve your fortune.
If you have the desire to win or be popular, put a tribute horse in
the south sector of your home/office. In ancient China, gifts and
spoils of war were often given to emperors and powerful court officials
led in on a tribute horse. If you are in a competitive situation at
work, in business or a competitive sport, this is one of the best
energizers to victory luck. Horses and light, particularly red, are
very suitable for this sector. Plants are also very good here. As wood
produces fire, it will also help energize the luck.
To invite prosperity to your homes, attach a coin and bell tied
with a red ribbon to your door knob. The bells should be placed at the
front door facing outside and the coins on the inside.
Always sit with a solid wall behind you to provide strong support.
Hang a picture of a mountain or have a dragon tortoise behind you to
symbolize solid support for your business. Hang a string of Nine
Emperor Coins behind you at work to provide solid financial support for
The southeast governs wealth luck, and is of the wood element. To
activate the growth energy of the wood element, place leafy green
plants here. Display gem trees with gold coins tied to their branches
to signify the growth of money luck. A mini water feature is also a
very good enhancer for this sector.
The three-piece prosperity coins activated with red ribbon bring
such auspicious feng shui. You should have them everywhere since they
attract money luck wherever they are placed. Keep them in your wallet.
Attach them to all your important files to increase your business.
Remember to energize your telephone, fax machine and personal computer.
Do the same under your floor rugs, tables and chairs.
Get several wealth ships laden with “fake jewels and golden
ingots”. Position them so there are at least one each, sailing inwards
from your individual “wealth direction”. This wealth ship represents
many different sources of income entering your premises. Never display
empty ships. Make sure they are sailing in, NOT out.
Get some figurines of three-legged toads with a coin in the mouth
and place them in a discreet area of your office. You may place a toad
diagonally from the door, under a table/sofa, on the floor or behind a
cabinet. You can have as many as you like but nine are recommended. You
can scatter them around your house, positioned either going in or out,
it does not matter.
