Feng Shui & Money: Promoting the FLOW (or Why Not All Fountains Are Created Equal)

There are so many ways to facilitate money flow in feng shui. And there are also so many ways to block it. Find out more from Alabama based, Katie Rogers

My friend and client, Dave Romanelli — yoga & meditation teacher, Momenteer, and author of Happy is the New Healthy — texted me for a session the other day:

The last time we had spoke, we assessed the Money area of his home and his office, which is usually the back left corner of the space.

 

Katie Rogers, Feng Shui and Money

If you line the brown/black/gray areas to the front door of your floor plan, you will see that the Prosperity/Money area falls in the back left of your space.

 

Originally, on a prior session, he had a huge metal bookshelf in his office that he did not like. This was a problem for many reasons.
1. It irritated him, as it was darn ugly, and it overwhelmed the space.
2. It was a place for collecting bits of clutter, which is a no-no anyway BUT especially in the Money area, where this shelf happened to be, and…
3. It was big and metal, and the element for the Money area is Wood. In the destructive cycle, Metal “chops” Wood, so Metal is the least favorable element for that section of the bagua map!

I suggested getting rid of the shelving unit and replacing it with a small table with perhaps a fountain, which would symbolize a flow of money. Also because Water “nurtures” Wood in the constructive cycle of the elements, a fountain would be nice, and it would add a lovely natural sound to the office.

We had not followed up until he sent me that text. In our Skype session, he showed me the great little black table he had found and the new fountain he had purchased.

Harmless enough, right? In fact, it’s quite nice in the photo…

However, in our session, I noticed it was not on. The fountain that was supposed to promote flow was not flowing!

“Dave, what’s up with the fountain? Why isn’t it on?”
“Oh, it is just so noisy honestly. I didn’t want it to interrupt our call.”
I raised my eyebrows.
“How often do you have to turn it off and on?”
“Well, I forget to turn it on a lot. Really I have to unplug it. Even then, it really doesn’t work that well, to make sure it’s working, I have to…etc. etc.”

So now, readers, you see what is going on here. He had the best of intentions, but this fountain that he chose was symbolizing his subconscious notions about money: that it takes a lot of effort to even get a trickle out of it!

Not all feng shui cures are created equal, indeed!

I’m happy to say that Dave was actually relieved to hear this and he said, “This makes total sense!” I suggested he get rid of that fountain altogether and use some lucky bamboo (8 stalks) and a red silk cloth (red is a power color) and perhaps a deity of some sort, such as Lakshmi or Ganesha (which coincides with his yogic traditions) or a happy Buddha.

I must say, I’ve seen this with fountains and water features a lot with clients. Basically, if maintaining the feature is a huge pain and takes more effort (cleaning, fixing, etc.) than it is worth and causes you more stress than tranquility, then that fountain is NOT the way to go for you. Think of the symbolism, always! You would be better off with a picture of money flow or a nice, sturdy plant or any of the suggestions I gave Dave.

So…get flowing!

Feng Shui Prosperity Place

One way to attract wealth and prosperity is to find the Feng Shui prosperity place in your home and add the appropriate objects and colors according to Feng Shui principles. Learn about this hot topic by Feng Shui professional and speaker, Carol Olmstead

Our surroundings have a powerful effect on what we attract into our lives. When the energy around us is blocked or unbalanced, our prosperity, health, and relationships can be adversely affected. This is especially important when that blocked energy is located in the area I call your “prosperity place.”

Feng Shui improvements unblock the flow of positive energy, remove negative influences, and allow you to attract the prosperity and abundance you deserve.

The Bagua is the mapping chart used to map your home and find your “prosperity place.” The modern bagua is a grid corresponding to the nine critical aspects of your life.  To use this grid, stand at your front door facing in to your home and hold the map in front of you. Look at a bagua map and find the Wealth/Prosperity area in the upper left hand corner of your home. That’s your “prosperity place.”

What room occupies your “prosperity place?” If that room is neglected, cluttered, or empty, your prosperity will be restricted and negatively affected. If that room is clean, neat, and filled with objects and items that make you feel prosperous, that is exactly what you will attract into your life.

Here are some specific ways to improve the “prosperity place” in your own home:

Wealth, Prosperity, Carol OlmsteadIs your kitchen in the prosperity place?  Food is associated with wealth in Feng Shui, so display a bowl of oranges or apples on the counter to symbolize prosperity. Keep the kitchen scrupulously clean. The more burners you have on your stove, the more prosperity you attract, so either hang a mirror behind the stove to reflect the burners, symbolically doubling them, or place a shiny teakettle on the stove to reflect the burners.

Is your bathroom in the prosperity place?  Keep the toilet lid down and the door to the room closed so you are not symbolically “flushing your wealth” down the toilet. And to keep the water in this room from “washing away” your wealth, add a red object to represent the Fire Element or a brown object to represent the Earth Element and symbolically “dry up” the excess water.

Is your garage in the prosperity place?  Clear the clutter so you can actually park cars in there. Store only those items that you actually use. Paint the walls or decorate them with the colors red or orange. Hang posters or prints with images that feel wealthy and prosperous near the door that connects the garage to house.

Is your living room or family room in the prosperity place?  Display your valuable objects in this room to symbolize wealth, such as crystal, valuable collections, fine art. Add healthy plants in beautiful pots to symbolize flourishing wealth. If you plants die, replace them immediately with healthy ones to keep your wealth growing.

Is your dining room in the prosperity place?  Food and guests are associated with wealth. Hang a mirror that reflects your dining room table and you will symbolically double your wealth. Keep valuable items like crystal, silver, and china in the room to represent the continuing accumulation of wealth.

Is your bedroom in the prosperity place?  Hang artwork that depicts water, such as rivers and streams. Water represents Wealth, Prosperity, Carol Olmsteadthe flow of abundance, so be sure that the water image in your art is flowing into your room. Art that shows water flowing out represents prosperity leaving your home.

Is your porch or deck in the prosperity place?  Choose high quality outdoor furniture for this space, and keep it here in all seasons. Grow red or purple flowers in red ceramic planters during the growing season, since plants and flowers represent abundance. Hang a wind chime, flag, or bird feeder to attract chi to your home.

What’s in your prosperity place?  Use Feng Shui improvements in your prosperity place, and you will bring the wealth and prosperity into your life that you so richly deserve.
