How to grow a money garden
Who does not want to activate the wealth luck? There are many ways one can tap into wealth luck energy and most often it pertains to placing some symbols or water features If you have a garden or in the case of an apartment, a balcony space, we can tap into this by creating an auspicious ‘Money garden’.
We can transform the front or backyard into a gold mine. First identify the south-east sector of the garden and in case this sector is missing due to a row house design or semi-detached home, you could still activate this sector. This sector represents wealth and abundance.
Next, introspect on what money or abundance relates to, in your opinion. Is money synonymous with beautiful tulips, sunflowers, and orchids or with an array of wild flowers? Use your intuition for your garden and only use feng shui principles as a guideline.
Choose plants that are plentiful and look rich and vibrant. Great colours for plants are red, purple, gold, yellows and royal blue. You want plants that grow quickly and are aesthetically appealing, then identify the right ones, but stay away from plants which are frail, and difficult to grow.
You could have a variety of annuals and perennials in the garden. If you only have perennials, it suggests unexpected growth which can be a nice surprise in the wealth or abundance sector. Annuals suggest new growth but nothing is constant, which can be quite nerve wracking as a steady flow of wealth is preferred.
To make the garden feel more natural and give it a feel of real nature, bring in a feel of wildlife to your home by placing artificial birds and butterflies on the plants. Although, there are many types of plants that invite live butterflies and it would be pleasant to see them move around and sit on the flowers.
You could introduce birdbaths and invite real birds into the garden to come and spend time, and even possibly think of a small water feature with either flowing or bubbling water, creating an effect of a creek with water flowing, as seen in rainforests.
The combination of greenery, flowers and plants signifying abundance and growth, representing wood elements and in addition the water feature, aiding the wood element, are excellent energisers of good chi to activate luck with money through proper Garden Feng Shui.
A garden says a great deal to you as you walk past it. An empty garden shows your finances are limited while a garden in constant disarray shows your life is busy and hectic. Listen to your garden and get to know what it says about you, your life and wealth.
