FENG SHUI CONCEPTS

Money Karma - The Energy of Wealth
It is no coincidence that money is
referred to as currency. In feng shui, water is synonymous to wealth. Like the
water of the oceans, wealth energy circulates around the world. Bodies of water have created some of the
world’s most prosperous cities. The philosophy of feng shui guides us on how to create environmental and personal circumstances
that garner wealth.
Just as it is impossible to grasp and hold onto water with your
hands, chasing after wealth is self-defeating. Water is a life-giving force.
Its power to transform is derived from its ability to flow and change from
phase to phase. Money is not meant to be hoarded; like stagnant water, money that is not circulating can make you sick. Money is meant to be a flowing energy of

ability to attract or repel money depending on your feng shui and your karma. Often, people do not realize this and thus struggle in their relationship with money. Too little money is a problem and too much money is a problem. There are
those who are not rich, but are happy and live
well, and there are millionaires
who have “everything,” but complain of a suffering life. Clearly, money
does not buy happiness.
are addicted to money and wish to be wealthy beyond necessity. Equating money with success
and happiness can have adverse effects. Like a drug, acquiring more and more money is necessary in
an attempt to quell the addict’s desire, and anything less leaves them feeling
vulnerable. And just as a drug addict will do anything for the next fix, wanting more and more wealth can
cause people to lie, steal, cheat, or become heartless moneymaking machines.
Ambition fueled by greed is highly
stressful and attracts similar people into your life. This can result in competition, jealousy, exhaustion, serious ailments,
family sacrifices, financial crisis, social ruin,
or harm to the masses and future generations.
One of the
highest forms of astrology, the Zi
Wei Dou Shu Life Map, is often used to reveal your financial
potential so that you have more awareness of your relationship with money. Understanding your relationship and karma
with money helps you know what to watch out for and
how to set up realistic financial goals. If your Wealth Sector shows that your income is most stable when receiving a salary, then you know that starting your own business
may be setting you up for disappointment. If your Life Map shows that your
wealth potential is higher than what you are currently making, you might
rethink your career and look for better wealth generating opportunities.
information regarding your potential, you can avoid unexpected obstacles in
your pursuit of wealth. Often clients ask why money is so elusive in their lives. They feel like there
is a perpetual hole in their wallet
through which money leaks out as soon as it is put in. A Life Map reading can show if there are past karma debts that need to be fulfilled in
this lifetime. With knowledge of how to restore balance, the “wallet hole” is
sealed and prosperity ensues.
acquiring money for sustenance, another vital reason for creating wealth is to
express yourself and contribute to the world. Use your Life Map as a guide to
finding contentment and purpose with your wealth. Harness the energy of water
with good feng shui and personal adjustments to attract abundance. Mastering
the power of allowing personal prosperity creates a ripple effect of infinite prosperity
in global proportions.
