Gold Fish For Wealth

walthymattersThe gold fish is associated with abundance and wealth in feng shui.This is because not only do they multiply fast but the Chinese word for fish (yu) is pronounced the same way as abundance!Also the gold colour of the goldfish brings the desired association with gold and their gracious movements creates good energy in the place where the aquarium  is placed.

The typical number of gold fish in a feng shui aquarium is 9 (8 brightly coloured gold fish and 1 black gold fish). The black fish is there to neutralize bad luck.The combination of eight red and one black fish symbolizes prosperity, energy and good fortune. The black goldfish is believed to be a symbol of protection. If the black fish dies without any known cause, such as under-oxygenated water, overfeeding or lack of food, it is believed that the fish died from absorbing bad luck that was meant for you. In fact, many people believe that if any fish in the tank dies without a justifiable cause, then its sacrifice was to spare you the bad luck that was headed your way.

The southeast section of your office or home is believed to be the best location for a fish tank to activate wealth and prosperity.

The Wang Fu Or Lucky Face For Wealth

wealthymatters.comThe Chinese believe in lucky and unlucky faces and a great deal is made of the mountains and rivers of the face, which indicate wealth and fortune. Generally the central axis of the face is deemed to be a crucial indicator of a person’s lot in life, and when this appears to balance both sides of the face, the powerful trinity of luck is said to be properly aligned for prosperity.The description of the Nine Wealth Features Of The Face below is taken from the book “Discover Yourself ” by Lillian Too’

The first wealth spot
The first wealth spot, the forehead (which also represents the luck from heaven and is the foremost mountain of the face) is round, high, curved and protruding. Such a forehead indicates power, wealth and great authority. A perfect forehead is rare, but as long as this protrudes and looks prominent and wide, good fortune is indicated. A good forehead augments all the other luck features since this also signifies the place of the heavenly celestial dragon. This is a yang spot in the face and means a great deal in terms of one’s luck potential. Look after your forehead and keep it clear of blemishes, spots and unsightly pimples. Use artificial aids to ensure a smooth forehead. Moles on the forehead are acceptable unless they are placed dead in the centre, in which case they should really be removed. Black moles here are deemed to be most inauspicious. Read more of this post

Feng Shui For A Wealthy Life

wealthymatters.comFollowing is an article from today’s Mumbai Mirror by Meenakshi Agarwal,a Feng Shui consultant:

More and more home owners are now opting for the ancient Chinese science of  Feng Shui to plan out their homes. This is because even a few minor changes that Feng Shui suggests bring about a remarkable positive change in one’s life.

A family residing in a posh locality of south Mumbai too have experienced this miraculous change in their lives, merely by following a few principles of Feng Shui. The head of the family sought Feng Shui solutions for a gamut of problems. He recounted that the family had simply stopped growing in  wealth or making any  progress career-wise. He had a marriageable daughter, another in college and a school going son. He even mentioned that in the present scenario, it would have been impossible for him to carry out any major changes as per Vaastu Shastra or Feng Shui. So, he asked for solutions that could be easily implemented. This is where the beauty of Feng Shui lies. The idea is not to disturb the basic spirit of the house by suggesting breaking of walls, etc., but to bring about drastic changes in your life with the slightest change in your environment.
