Wealth through Feng Shui is a subject that is heavily commercialized and exaggerated. It is not really about extra cash and a windfall. Wealth and Abundance energy in Feng Shui is more about fostering the energy of Prosperity. The dictionary defines Prosperity as “a successful, flourishing, or thriving condition, especially in financial respects; good fortune.”
This “condition” is what Feng Shui refers to as harnessing beneficial energies that sharpen the mind and allows the resident to recognize opportunities and perform better in their career and activity of their choice.
Every home and space has a Wealth and Abundance Area defined on the energetic map. The energy maps used in Feng Shui are called
Lo Shu square, which has 9 energy areas, and the Bagua with 8 energy areas.
There is also a more advanced and accurate way to determine the wealth area in a space. It is based on the time period and the year’s energy. We are currently on Period 8, which started in 2004 and ends in 2023. This is why the #8 is a lucky number now! We are finishing the year of the Wood Horse 2014 and moving into 2015 the year of the Wood Goat. This means that this year’s energies are waning down and new ones are moving in. Just like time moves in cycles, energies do too.
The job of a trained Feng Shui Consultant is to find these Wealth energies and activate them. Part of our task is also to find the negative energies that may have a big impact on the residents. Negative energies can wipe out and minimize the Wealth energies when not neutralized. It is very much like a sports team that needs to balance their defense and offense.
There are a few negative sectors to watch for every year, but the most offensive negative energy is called the “Five Yellow.” If this energy falls in your front door, or in a room and space that is used a lot and it is not taken care of, there can be accidents and health problems that can wipe your ability to produce wealth.
The “Five Yellow” energy can also aggravate an already existing condition, causing more problems. That is why it is good to have a trained consultant analyze and neutralize the energies prior to, or at the beginning of each year.
Prosperity encompasses wealth, health and happiness.
I hope this blog was useful in understanding the nature of the Wealth and Abundance area.
For more information on next years energies, look for “Feng Shui and the Year of the Wood Goat” blog to be published the first Monday of February. The Chinese New Year begins on the New Moon, Wednesday February 18th, 2015 at 6:47pm EST.
A man is not rightly conditioned until he is a happy, healthy, and prosperous being; and happiness, health, and prosperity are the result of a harmonious adjustment of the inner with the outer of the man with his surroundings.
