3 Quick Tips to activate your wealth corner

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

The southeast of the bagua is known as the wealth corner. You can activate your wealth corner with these 3 quick tips:

1. Water it to activate your wealth corner

Since the Southeast is associated with the wood element, and water helps wood grow, boost the sector with fountains, aquariums, ponds, and wood features.

You can also treat each space in your home (e.g. living room, dining room, etc) as its own bagua and activate the wealth corners of each of the spaces.

2. Grow it to activate your wealth corner

Place plants that enhance wood growth and energy. My personal favorites are:

  • Jade plants
  • Citrus trees
  • Bamboo
  • Grapes
  • Purple Orchids

Be careful not to place plants and water if it’s a bedroom, however. Also, avoid thorny plants like cactus, which are extremely inauspicious and can cause harm. Remove any dead or wilting plants. Weak plants weaken your personal and environmental chi.

3. Money, Money, Money to activate your wealth corner

Put a bowl of coins or Chinese I-Ching coins to symbolize wealth. However be mindful not to place anything else that represents metal (as metal chops wood). This means avoiding the element, shapes, colors that are associated with metal. For example, having white curtains in the southeast would not be ideal – it would better to choose a green, brown, or blue color.
