This article deals with other areas of the bagua related to prosperity. A general understanding and simple cures are presented toward the goal of improving the flow of Chi and manifesting prosperity.
Another prosperity area is the Happy Family area. This area is in the middle left of the bagua in front of the Prosperity Corner. The element is wood, the color is green the shape is rectangular or columnar. They have an important inter-relationship. This area has to do with “every day” money, money for bills, food, rent etc. Pay attention to Happy Family.
Have lots of light and movement in this area. Don’t worry if the wrong properties exist like an object that has the element of metal and is white and round. You can cure it with the element of fire, the color red and pointed or triangular shapes. Candles also work well as a cure. This is a good place for a money bowl (my last article explains this).
In front of the Happy Family area on left is the Self Cultivation and Knowledge area. If your money is spent before it is earned this is a good area to concentrate on. This area is helpful in developing wisdom on how to create and use your money.
Place a picture of someone wise with money in this area. Put a bill or coin in this space. Money has pictures of wise men and it is money! It can be as simple as that. Have books that pertain to prosperity in this area. All of these things work to affirm your intention of prosperity. They remind you of your intention when you see them which enhances the feeling of prosperity.
Of course, the Career area is a big area of prosperity. It is next to Self Cultivation and Knowledge. Typically, the Entry falls in the Career section which is in the middle of the front of the house. The element is water, the color is black and the shape is freeform or undulating.
The entry to your home is a very important prosperity area in Feng Shui. Doors are the “mouth of Chi”. When you open your door you are inviting in energy. Therefore, it is important to make a point of opening your front door. That may sound funny but many people enter and exit their homes only through the garage and rarely use the front door. Try to remember to open it now and then and have something in that area that invites in Chi. Art, wind chimes, crystals and fountains are good Chi movers in an entry. Remember, water is a symbol of prosperity so add more water!
Doors are the “mouth of Chi” and windows are the “eyes of Chi”. Doors should be kept unobstructed and able to open fully so that Chi flows in. Windows should be kept clean. Add more lighting if windows are not sufficient. Add some red ribbon or tape across the window sill and at the base of the door to invite even more Chi in.
The last area of prosperity in today’s article is the kitchen, more specifically the stove. In china the more people you cooked for the more prosperous you were. So, the more burners on the stove the better. This doesn’t necessarily mean you have to upgrade your stove. You can simply place mirrors at the back of the stove to multiply the burners. The mirrors also allow you to see behind you if your back happens to be to the door when you are cooking. Always keep the stove clean and clear. Also, keep the countertops uncluttered so they are a functional clear space where you can cook, create and prosper.
