Improving the flow of money
After identifying the Southeast and the North parts of your home, having elements and items that will enhance the flow of energy is essential. The following tips are useful to encourage the abundant chi.
1. Include the feng shui elements in the area
An element represents each area of life. Wood supports the Southeast direction, the space where wealth and money flourish. Consequently, water and earth strengthen wood. The earth or ground provides a solid foundation for growth while the water offers nourishment.
Improving the money flow in an area requires you to integrate the elements. Thus, the place needs the items that represent the elements.
Wood, for example, translates to healthy and lush greens. Thriving plants are best included in the area. A money plant, lucky bamboos or any air purifying indoor plant must be present in the area. Images of forests and vibrant leaves, grasses, and trees is another way to bring the element in the space.
There must be a fountain or a stream of water to support the wood elements and the items representing money. If that’s not possible, a photo of a body of water such as an ocean, the sea, a lake, a river or a waterfall will still do wonders for the room. It’s important to include a clean image of flowing liquid. Refrain from stagnant and murky waters.
Besides the visual representation of water, using a mirror is another way to complement the wood element.
To show off the element of earth, a display of land formations and natural landscapes such as beaches, mountains, canyons, and hills is necessary.
