We focus on simple yet powerful ways in which you can use feng shui in your workspace to increase your wealth. Identify what you want: if you want to increase your money power, acknowledge it. Figure out why you want more money.
Boosting the wealth area
The wealth area of your home lies in that part of the building which is furthest away from the left side of the front door. This area relates to wind, growth and communication. The energy here should be bright.
If the wealth area is extended, you are lucky because it means that lot of money and good news is coming your way.
Feng shui cures
Red envelope: A red envelope signifies the protective sleeve for money. Placing a red envelope in the wealth sector symbolically creates abundance for you.
Desk placement: Your desk power position is the direction in which your desk faces the door (or your workspace’s entrance) but not directly opposite to the door. Your back should be against a wall so that you are supported from behind. Try to have a clear view of your work area. (Find out your KUA Number and your Four Best Directions good for prosperity and should be used while you work, sit or sleep.)
Welcoming chi: Allowing the chi to come into your workspace and move around freely increases abundance. Don’t allow anything to block your workspace’s entrance.
Plants: The bamboo plant improves positive energy in the house and gives energy to the members to face life. The bamboo plant symbolises good luck. It is also believed that the bamboo plant protects the occupants from unseen forces.
Lighting your wealth area: Lighting makes a powerful chi enhancer for your wealth sector. Use vertical rectangular light that represents upward growth. If the south sector of your home is dark, keep the area brightly illuminated.
Water fountain: It can be a valuable asset, especially if it is placed in the north, east or southeast sector. Fresh water is symbolic of good health.
If you are broke and want to change your energy, try to visit the wealthiest place you can find once a week. Stroll around for an hour and soak up the prosperous life energy. You’ll absorb new ideas and auspicious things will start happening soon.
If is difficult to visit affluent areas then read luxurious glossy magazines that show the finest jewellery, cars, houses etc.
The prosperity signature can also help attract wealth. It should begin and finish on an upward stroke. Lastly, treat people the way you want to be treated.
