Wealth. Nice word, isn’t it? We all wish we had more, but do we need MORE? In my opinion, having wealth is having enough money to pay your bills and to live comfortably. You live in a comfortable home and have the normal conveniences most people do. Yes, there will always be those people who need the best cars, the best vacation homes, the best travel plans, the best jobs, etc., and there will always be that type of person, but do you have to be one of them?
If you are satisfied with what you have, the universe will continue to bring you what you need. We may not get all of our “wants” in this lifetime, but as long as we have what we need, well, isn’t that exactly what we want? If not, it should be.
The wealth area of the ba gua is another one I usually get asked about. Wealth, money, prosperity, financial security or stability, investments, attracting more money, more ????? In this third dimensional plane we live in, yes, we need money to survive. So, I will give you some hints on how to attract more wealth into your life. It is very simple.
First off, the wealth area (also the empowerment and prosperity area) of your home is the far left corner of your house/apartment from the architectural front door. Many Feng Shui consultants use the whole area, but I like to use the area as close to the actual corner as possible. I think it brings in more power and energy. Do what feels comfortable to you.
This area needs the colors of blue, purple and red, so any combination of these colors would be very auspicious. This area also represents the hip and bones in the body, so if you are having any problems with this area of your body, be sure that this area of the ba gua is clutter free and in repair.
You want to have good light in this area (and be sure to turn the light on frequently to light up the wealth area) as well as many money cures such as the prosperity ball or coin ball, Chinese coins strung together on a cord with a red tassel, two bamboo flutes, live plants, and of course your money vase. Money vase, you ask? Yes, there is a little known feature as a simple money vase that actually attracts more money to you. Get an octagon mirror, a red napkin or cloth (not maroon, rose or magenta), and a clear glass vase that is wider at the top than at the bottom. Put coins and dollar bills from around the world, put money in it that you want to grow (I always keep the amount of one reading or a Feng Shui consultation in mine), put in jewelry that you don’t use but that is of good quality. You intent is to accumulate more money or wealth. You may keep adding to the money vase in whichever way you feel appropriate; however, be sure that the mirror is face up and that the red cloth goes over the mirror. Then place the vase over the mirror and cloth.
Another cure would be to hang paintings or photographs of waterfalls; I actually painted a great picture of a waterfall and another one of a panda bear eating bamboo so I have both pictures in the prosperity corner. I also have a good strand of silk flowers around the GOLD halogen floor lamp (anything that reminds you of $$$) and a money frog in the room facing that corner.
Another easy wealth cure is to have a fish tank with 9 fish in it placed in that corner (you can also add additional fish in 9 fish increments). Also, a small water fountain will bring money into your home, especially if you keep it turned on.
As long as you keep the energy balanced in this area, your financial security will become more stable and secure.
