Things You'll Need:
Feng Shui reference guide, bagua map
Get rid of the clutter. Clutter is one of the biggest no-no’s in feng shui. Clutter bogs you down and disrupts the flow of energy. Clear everything out that you don't need. Clean out your closets, make room under your bed. Let the chi flow through your home.
Add water elements to your home. Water is the main element that brings wealth to your home. Water should always be clear, moving and free flowing. Never let your water get stagnant. Think peaceful, pure and relaxing. A fish tank is one way to stimulate your wealth areas. Make sure fish are healthy and strong and always keep the tank clean. You can display pictures of water scenes, especially ones showing abundance such as a fisherman bringing in a big haul of fish. Another great water feature to display in your home is a fountain. A fountain is a great way to keep your abundance flowing. A picture of flowing water will work if you cannot place a fountain in that area. Make sure you do not have vases of stagnant water and do not display photos or paintings of violent storms or other disturbing water scenes. Do not use water elements in bedrooms, this will have a negative impact on your finances.
Enhance your wealth corners by hanging wind chimes, a mobile, or by hanging Chinese coins tied together with a red ribbon (if you do this make sure you use coins in the increments of 3, 6, or 8 with 8 being the most powerful money manifesting number).
Add some plants with round leaves to your home. This is another good way to enhance your wealth area, according to feng shui guidelines. If the plants have red or purple flowers that is even better.
Include photos or representations of things you want, goals, or representations of abundance and prosperity in your wealth and prosperity areas (you can find these baguas on a feng shui chart). Harvest scenes indicate abundance. You can also put photos up of the new car or house you are working towards.
Add representations of richness in your wealth corner. Anything that represents richness to you, such as a jewelry box, a piggy bank, or even your purse, should be placed in your wealth areas. Other general enhancements for wealth are seashells or fish sculptures, healthy plants and Austrian crystals.
Paint for prosperity. The best colors for the wealth area are green, red, purple, black and gold, with the most effective colors being red and green.
Open your doors and invite the wealth in. Make sure all doors open fully and easily, you don’t want a door that will not open all the way. This could affect your ability to make a comfortable living.
Give your kitchen a feng shui overhaul. You should focus on using positive feng shui elements in the wealth corner of the room and throughout the entire kitchen. First of all make sure your plumbing is in good working order. A dripping faucet is symbolically and literally money going down the drain. You should also keep your drains plugged when not in use. This keeps money in your possession. You do not want to accumulate wealth then have it go down the drain. Place a small bowl overflowing with fruit on a kitchen table or island to make it look as though you have an excess of produce. The Chinese believe the stove has a direct connection to wealth so make sure to keep your stove and burners in good working condition and keep them very clean. You can also hang or place a mirror on your stove to double the number of burners seen and therefore increasing your prosperity. Keep a copper, silver, or brass teapot in your kitchen. Have many jars of spices and jars filled with pasta, both of these symbolize wealth.
Close toilet lids. You don’t want to flush your money down the toilet. Remember to keep your drains plugged in your bathroom sinks and tubs as well and keep your plumbing in good working order.
Add feng shui elements throughout your home. Place a mirror in your dining room to make your table appear larger. Put a wind chime on the ceiling in your work area to attract wisdom and good chi Place all your valuables such as your jewelry boxes, safes, or piggy bank in the far left corner of the bedroom. In your living room hang a round clear crystal on an 18 inch red cord in the far left corner to give your wealth a boost.
Incorporate feng shui elements outside your home, in your yard, to attract wealth and prosperity. A fountain can be placed in front of your home; the water should flow inward towards your home. Make sure you turn it off at night to let the energies rest. If the southeast corner of your backyard slopes down and away from the house, put a light there to shine uphill. This sends wealth up to you. Place a windmill, weathervane, or any moving, spinning object in the far left corner of your backyard to stimulate energy and attract wealth.
