Increase Your Wealth and Prosperity the Feng Shui Way

When you express gratitude, you are really reflecting your prosperity. Prosperity does not refer solely to financial wealth. It also encompasses the richness of your life. Are you rich in friends, family, love, community, health, talent, career, self-fulfillment, inner peace and/or finances? How prosperous are you? You can easily take positive steps to contribute to your own prosperity—and Feng Shui can help. 

Feng Shui utilizes your positive connection with your environment to help clear the way for blessings to enter your life. 

In the I Ching, the Wealth and Prosperity area of your home or business is called “Persistent Wind.” It is not about winning the lottery or hitting it rich in the stock market but about steadily gathering resources to secure present and future happiness on all fronts. 

Begin your prosperity work by culling and organizing the old to make way for the flow of new abundance. Take time to look at your home’s Wealth and Prosperity area and ask yourself, “Is the area enhancing or draining my prosperity? What can I do to improve this area of my life?” 

In the Feng Shui Bagua, the Wealth and Prosperity area is located in the back left of your home or business.

The Elements for Wealth and Prosperity
The elements for the Wealth and Prosperity area are Fire and Wood. The Fire element is represented in any shade of red, ranging from pink tones to burgundy and purple; cone and triangle shapes; any type of lighting; anything derived from animals; art representing people, animals, suns, stars. Adding representations of the Wood element, such as plants or items made of wood, helps to nurture the Fire enhancements. And because Water feeds Wood, incorporating all three elements further encourages the flow of Ch’i. Picture a beautiful fountain surrounded by purple plants near a wooden table with a deep burgundy or red umbrella.

To help your prosperity I flow into your life, try a few of the following enhancements:

Begin by decluttering the space.

Add any shade of purple, red, or blue, which evokes the feeling of richness.

Enhance with vibrant live or artificial plants having rounded leaves.

Install water features such as fountains, waterfalls, or aquariums. Water will feed the Wood                      element, which in turn feeds the Fire element. Prosperity flows in with water,                                            both in the Wealth and Prosperity and Career areas. 

Display art in the colors purple, red, or dark blue, that represent wealth, or depict                                       large family gatherings.

Display valuable possessions.

Add affirmations calling in prosperity.

Try a few of the  following  enhancements for the outside of the area:

Continue enhancing with the colors purple, red, and blue in flowers, pots, cushions, umbrellas.

Add a water feature flowing toward the home or business.

        (Waterfalls or 360-degree bubbling fountains work well here in letting prosperity flow.)

Call in the Ch’i by adding flags, whirligigs, mobiles, or wind chimes.

What to Avoid in the Wealth and Prosperity Area

Anything old, worn, and in poor condition

Clutter of any form, which blocks prosperity from flowing

A Wealth and Prosperity Area Not Located Within the Bagua

If your Wealth and Prosperity area is missing from your floor plan, you can anchor the area by doing one or a combination of the following cures:  Anchor the missing corner structurally, such as building a trellis or deck, planting flowers in a flower garden or planter boxes in the purple spectrum, adding a fountain, a seating arrangement or a figure representing wealth and prosperity. If the area outside is not accessible, you can symbolically anchor from the inside by hanging a 30 mm round faceted crystal, placing a mirror, and/or a picture of a prosperity representation on the wall by the missing corner. If the missing area happens to be a parking lot, you can draw a small symbol of a dollar sign, Yin/Yang sign or the trigram for persistent wind in the exact location, closing off the corner. In a lawn or dirt area a piece of rose quartz can also be buried pointing up in the exact corner to symbolize anchoring.

Sample Affirmations for the Wealth and Prosperity Area

“I feel very comfortable with my finances.”

“I have an abundance of blessings through my family and friends.”

“I just signed a lucrative book deal.”

Enjoy all the prosperity your life has to offer!
