Feng shui for wealth can be applied to a home or business and may help a person achieve financial goals. No aesthetic program will ever attract wealth on its own and must be combined with smart business strategies in order to work. Many people do believe that feng shui for wealth can help attract positive energy, but it takes the design of a fully trained feng shui consultant who measures energy and has a detailed knowledge of both the space and the subject itself in order to be effective. For most people, feng shui for wealth is a guiding aesthetic consideration with practical applications, and may even help build wealth through conscientiousness.
Practitioners of feng shui believe that every home has an area related to money. This area is always located in the southeast, and may be an entire room or only part of a room. One piece of advice often given when doing feng shui for wealth is to place a green item, a fish, or running water in this area. If living things, such as plants or fish, are used in this area, it is essential that they be kept as healthy as one would like one's finances to be.
Another way to implement good feng shui for wealth is to reduce clutter. While clutter may cause wealth to be reduced, having too much open space can cause it to slip away. Finding a good balance is essential when placing furniture and other items around the room.
Running water is a common theme in feng shui for wealth. Fresh, flowing water is said to symbolize incoming money. If water is not an option, a blue rug can be used to symbolize the water flowing. Another common idea is that wealth attracts more wealth, so placing gold and other symbols of luxury around a room can help bring in additional money. It may not be a good idea to place actual expensive items out in the open, so a nice substitute is to use decorative items that look like gold.
While there is no proof that feng shui has any effect on the ease with which a person attracts wealth, there is no reason not to employ the techniques above to a business or home. In fact, feng shui may obliquely increase wealth when used in a business because the aesthetics of feng shui are attractive to many people. Moreover, living or working in an environment that one knows is designed to attract wealth can help improve work practices or even morale. Of course, it is also possible that feng shui may work in the manner outlined in traditional texts as well. Needless to say, if one is not striving for wealth, one will not achieve it, but feng shui combined with a healthy amount of ambition can certainly be helpful when striving for prosperity.
