The Chinese traditionally believe that the
material well being of people is governed
by three types of luck i.e. heaven, earth and
the individual self.
Heaven luck (Fate or
Karma), beyond the
control of humans,
circumstances of our
birth and our destiny.
Heaven luck determines if an individual is
destined for greatness or doomed to obscurity.
Feng-Shui wisdom guides us for improving
Earth luck and Human luck which, unlike
Heaven luck, is within our control and which if
properly activated, may alter our fate.
Good Feng Shui, does not bring you wealth if
you do not strive for it; but it does
give you the necessary support
to seek fame and fortune. It helps
you create an environment, both
at home and at the workplace,
that will strengthen you and
attract the energies to manifest
This ancient Chinese
wisdom 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.
All enlightened readers, you should find out
the wealth areas within your office, living
room, kitchen, and bedroom.
Now that you've identified your money power
spots, here are some quick and easy ways to
apply feng shui to these spaces:
• Clear out clutter : Clutter is a sign of
stagnant energy, and
clutter in your money
power spots can block
your cash flow. Getting rid
of clutter is one of the most
powerful ways to shift the
energy into high gear.
• Enhance with symbols of
prosperity : Use symbols,
such as a bowl of coins (add your loose
change to it every day), a
"lucky bamboo" plant, or
anything that symbolizes
success and prosperity to you.
There are lots of Chinese luck
symbols available, but you don't have to
use them unless you want to. A picture
of your dream house, or a model of that
luxury car you long for, is an effective
money symbol because it has personal
meaning for you.
• Accent with green and purple : Green
symbolizes vitality and growth and purple
is the colour of wealth. Place a bowl full of
green and purple grapes (real or artificial)
in the wealth area of your kitchen, to
symbolize abundance filling your home. If you use real grapes, it's
okay to eat them, just
add more from time
to time so the grapes
remain fresh and the
bowl is always more
than half full.
• Fix broken things :
Anything that doesn't work as it should, is a
sign of something wrong in the area of your
life that corresponds to
that part of your space.
Examine each of your
money power spots to
look for anything that
needs repair. It's time
to do something about
that loose doorknob,
non-working light switch, stuck file drawer,
or faulty telephone or clock that doesn't
keep correct time, to name few examples.
Remove items like these or fix them so they
• How you handle money : Do you keep paper
money neatly sorted in your wallet or money
clip, or is it jammed in there any old way,
or crumpled up at
the bottom of your
pocket? Clean the
clutter out of your
purse and wallet,
and start handling
your money as
though you value it.
• Balance your
cheque book : Put your cheque book in an
attractive cover (choose green, purple, red or
black) and keep it in the wealth area of your
desk - that's the rear
left corner again --
or in the wealth area
of your office. If you
neglect your money,
it will neglect you.
• Check your exteriors : Now go outside,
have a look at the shape of your house, is
it a regular shape? Is the paintwork in good
condition or needs repair? Can you walk up
your front door
over plant pots
Is it inviting?
Are there any
l a m p p o s t s
outside or large
trees close to front? Is the pathway to door
too straight? Are there dead leaves around
the edges and in borders? Have you fixed the
fence panel that blew down in the winter or
rain? Cleared the rubbish from behind the
shed or garage? The most important thing
to remember is that you do not have trouble
getting to your front door. Make sure the
pathway is clear and even lit at night.
• Sleeping, Dining and Cooking for wealth :
How your food is cooked also has a bearing
on the quality of your luck. While cooking

After a good meal make sure you have
a good night sleep. Do not sleep under any
overhead beam, foot of the bed does not
point to the door and your head does not
point to North.
• Live generously: Money is a form of energy,
and it needs to flow through your life, not just into it. Holding
in, while giving
g e n e r o u s l y
you don't yet have ample money to share,
give as generously as you can of your time,
energy, compassion and appreciation.
• Express your gratitude: Small things count,
too, so it's okay if
there's little of the
spectacular on your
list most of the time.
It's not what happened
that's important; it's
getting in the habit
of focusing on the
positive side of things every day that
matters. The more you notice, appreciate
no matter how
small, the more
good things will
come your way,
A true experience
of prosperity is
determined not by
how much money you
have, but by how well you notice and enjoy
what is already present in your life.
The formal name for the wealth area is
"fortunate blessings" - as you de-clutter,
repair, and accessorize your money power
spots keep this broader meaning in mind.
When you celebrate being rich in friends and
family or rich with laughter or the richness of
your spiritual life or even being rich in air and
sunshine if nothing else seems to be going well
for you today, material blessings will come to
you more readily as well.
