The latest fad to hit the home decor market is the designer look that’s minimalistic, spacious and creative. What if your budget constraints don’t allow you to remodel your entire house? Feng Shui has the answer to your money woes and it’s not as difficult as it is made out to be. The result that you can achieve by applying simple rules of this ancient art is no less than months of professional interior design work. All you need to do is to be creative to accentuate the beauty of your house by making a few simple, affordable changes to an area. Let Feng Shui be your guide.
With the help of the guidelines, you can rearrange things to create a visual impression of an orderly, balanced and beautiful home. There would still be a few things that you might need to buy, specific Feng Shui items like plants, bowls, mirrors, chimes etc that are not too expensive. So, even if you do indulge in a bit of shopping to complete your personal Feng Shui project, it would be worth the effort and time invested. However, you should consult an expert for professional advice and guidance before you rearrange things around the house.
Take for example a cramped or stifling bedroom room because of its architectural flaws like a low ceiling or small windows. With some simple Feng Shui tricks, you can create strong visual lines that will make the room feel airier, spacious and comfortable. Use practical ways to provide multidirectional light sources into the space, which will help it make brighter and feeling less garish. Another idea is to add few things to an existing set up which not only look good but are potent Feng Shui energizers, such as the ‘wealth bowls’. So, if you wish to enhance your wealth, you can place this special bowl that represents overflowing wealth and abundance. You also need to place six smooth crystal balls, yellow jasper ingots and coins in this leaded sparkling crystal bowl. All these things are considered to be ‘wealth magnifiers’. Moreover, these six crystal balls not only represent the auspicious heaven luck number but is also a part of a special Feng Shui ritual to foster loving relationships. These crystals ensure a smooth ride through life and create harmony among family members.
You could place the wealth bowl at the following places:
■ In the living room, business premises or office Southeast corner
■ Facing your entrance to invite wealth and multiple fortune luck into your homes
■ At the Northwest sector to activate your financial support luck for money finding opportunities
■ On your work desk to attract lots of wealth and good fortune into your office
The wealth bowl not only helps to enhance material wealth but also protects from potential wealth loss. The symbols send vibes to our minds reminding us of opportunities to acquire our wealth. You might know by now that there’s almost no interior design flaw that Feng Shui can’t minimise or disguise. Feng Shui is not about decoration, it is all about enhancing the good energy around us.
