Money Flow And Feng Shui

Money flow is connected with energy. It can either energize us or it can drain us. The word currency, just like water, is something that we want to flow in our lives.

In feng shui, our money flow is heavily affected by the things around us. The vibrations around us is affecting our very own vibrations.
Money flows easily when the energy around us is also flowing freely. This also goes the same with our health and relationships.

Below are the following feng shui tips that will let you have a healthy money flow:

1. Take care of the mouth of chi in your home. The entrance of your house plays an important role in feng shui. Opportunities equals to money. Make sure that your door is free from any clutter, the house number can be read and the doorbell is working.

2. Beware of any leak in your home. Water symbolizes money and leaking water means money going out of your pocket. It will really affect your money flow. Fix it immediately before it gets big.

3. Get rid of broken things in your space. If it doesn’t have any value and it is beyond repair and flawed, then it’s time to let it go. Cracked plates and cups should be out of your home.

4. Always close the bathroom door and the toilet lid. They flush your money down the drain.

5. Your cooking station symbolizes abundance. Make sure that everything is in perfect condition.

6. Use feng shui symbols to boost the money flow in your family. Images such as running horses, flowing water or nature are good representations of money flowing freely. It is also better to hang a crystal in your window to keep the energy alive in your home.

7. Spend time to examine yourself. What are your personal beliefs when you’re dealing with your finances? Associating wealth, money and finances with fear and anxiety will never help you. Keep the energy high by relating money with wealth, good health, happiness and abundance.

Always remember that a healthy money flow is only possible when the energy within and around us is moving freely.

The Power Of Feng Shui And Your Workplace

POSTED BY Cathi Hargaden January 24, 2018 IN clutter, educational, environments, feng shui, flow | No Comments

Feng Shui is certainly required when designing your workplace and not just at home.

The colorful workplace of Google.Some things never change but ONE thing that is CHANGING – is the space we are all starting to work in.

People right across the world running their own small businesses no longer want to work at home isolated, no banter and no presence of other people.  What has started to be created are common spaces for entrepreneurs of all age groups, diversities and backgrounds.

People are getting out of the prisons offered to them in the corporate and service world and creating their own living dynamic spaces with like minded people.

What do we call that?  WE call it Feng Shui Change!  The winds of change are always blowing some more stronger than others at times.  This shift into a hub workplace has the freedom to create a space where people really want to be with who they want to be with and work on what they choose to do.

Having recently visited some of these workplaces, some are basic with a lick of corporate colour but it does not have to be like that.

Even Google has created a most fascinating workplace for their innovators:


So, why not you?

You now have the freedom to create one of these yourself and in London people are opening up their own spaces to offer that service.

Where to begin?


A green and yellow colored workplace.

Well when people are working in technology it is predominantly the Metal Element at play.  That is why all these organisations have white, magnolia, grey walls – its an authoritarian tone.

However, when you are working from the mind – Metal – it is good to be reminded of all the elements as no one element reigns; you have to have earth to support the metal; you require water to support the wood.

Here are some tips to get you started on Creating a Feng Shui Hot Spot in your Workplace.

  1. Have plants around that bring in the Wood Element; not cacti but leaves that are moving upwards.
  2. Use ceramic pots around the space-one should have nothing in them to create an energy of space inside to receive great things.
  3. Use colours of blue and green as water feeds the wood these could be in bottles, tapestries, art work.
  4. Ensure Art Work denotes a good feel factor- people communicating, cooperating, goals for business, luxury living, the connection with others through nature of people in pictures.
  5. Ensure the cleanliness and tidiness of the place-no clutter-flow is obvious and that each working space enables people to have their back to the wall.
  6. The power point of any room is diagonally opposite the main door in that room-use the space wisely.
  7. Ensure people have a clearly defined space for themselves but there is a communal place to share for talk, eats and debate.
  8. All windows to be cleaned, sufficient head space psychologically for people to elevate and very important is the aspect of aroma.
  9. It is a sensitive area Aroma but if you can make it subtle with usually aromas of fruits or brain busters like basil and rosemary it would be an advantage.
  10. Anything that smells which is distasteful will ruin the experience and because peoples emotions and memories are tied up with smell it is important to get this right.
  11.  Ensure lighting is generous but not glaring. It should evenly spread in all over your workplace.

Feng Shui Wedding Tips For A Happier Relationship

A wedding is an important milestone in one’s life. It involves a lot of things and a long time to make it a success.

A woman wearing a white wedding dress.

Weddings are special occasion. Hence, we always spend a lot of our time and money to make it as unique as possible. But that alone will not make things turn out right.

Here are Feng Shui tips for a successful wedding:

1. Check the numbers. Deciding on a wedding date is the first thing to do. Numbers 8 and 9 are considered lucky numbers. The number 8 means love and number 9 represents eternity.

Two numbers that sums up to 8 or 9 are also lucky numbers. One good example is number 17. Add the 2 numbers and you get 8. The same thing goes for numbers 26 and 27.

2. Consider the color of your wedding dress. The Chinese people use the color white for mourning. Choose instead the colors beige, ivory or gold. If you really would like to use white on your wedding day, add a touch of pink or beige.

For  your color motif, using red means love and romance, black and white means a balance in relationship, blue and green means calm feeling, yellow is cheerfulness and orange means warm.  Purple and violet colors, shows passion and the color pink is lightheartedness.

3. Bring good energy on your reception by using good lighting. Light is good energy and a well lighted reception means a brighter future ahead of you.

Natural light is good but if it’s not abundant in your reception area, use candles and mirrors. It lightens up your space and makes the area look bigger. You can also use chandeliers and crystals for additional luck.

4.  Decorating the place in pairs is vital. Bring in a pair of vases and candles to bring more love into your relationship.

5. A garden or an outdoor wedding is a good example of a good Feng Shui wedding. If it’s impossible, then try to find a place where there is a good view of nature.

6. Feng Shui is also about creating a space that will enable the good energies to flow freely. Avoid using pointed objects most especially the square or rectangular shaped tables. Choose round or oval tables instead.

7. For the good old phrase “something old, something borrowed, something blue,” be sure to ask it from people who are happily married.

8. Pay attention to the air quality of your store. Does it smell good and fresh? Put fresh flowers or live plants in your space. You can also use aromatherapy for a better air quality on your store.
