The ancient Chinese system of Feng Shui teaches that the Wealth area is in the far left corner of your home, and in the corresponding corner of each room. If you are having problems with abundance, prosperity, or money-related matters, these are important areas to look at.
Find out some simple enhancements to help you improve the flow of your wealth energy, here:
First, you may need to change your thinking around money. If you believe, for example, that money is the root of all evil, simply changing your consciousness to realize that money is a form of energy, neither good nor bad, will help.
The best colors for the Wealth area are green, red, purple, black, and gold. The Chinese equate water and money, so live fish, thriving in wealth-enhancing water, are considered a money enhancement. (You can buy fish-scale design wallpaper in China because this belief is so strong!) But you donít want stagnant water, or water that moves too swiftly in this area. For instance, if you put a goldfish bowl in your Wealth bagua, it will need to have a pump and filtration system to keep the water clean. And while it is good to have a picture of water in this area, you donít want a photo of Niagara Falls, for instance, because it moves too fast. Also, avoid pictures of frozen water.
Good general enhancements for Wealth:
*Seashells or a fish sculpture.
*Plants (but be sure to keep them healthy! If your plants die due to lack of light, use silk ones instead.)
*A copper, brass, or silver teapot, since teapots hold water and are used to brew something considered abundant and beneficial.
*Spices, since they were once worth their weight in gold (these would work well in the wealth area of your kitchen).
*Filled pasta jars (another one for the kitchen).
*Wind chimes or Austrian crystals.
*Anything that represents richness to you (a jewelry box, for example.)
