The corner that is in the back left quadrant of your home is associated with prosperity. This area of the house is related to money matters. However, it is money related to excess. If you are struggling with making ends meet or everyday financial matters, you will need to focus your energy on improving the Family Corner first. Fixing the problems in the family corner and adding enhancements will make money start flowing into your life properly. However, the prosperity corner is where you should focus if you are interested in excess money like bonuses, lucky money, inheritances, and other unexpected cash increases.
How to Enhance the Prosperity Corner
The best way to enhance this area quickly and effectively is to add purple to the area. If you can’t or don’t want to paint this area of your home an eggplant or lavender color, the next best thing to do is to add these colors in some form. Perhaps if you have a window in the area, you can dress it up with purple colors. If not, you can try to acquire purple-colored items to display in the area. Another great color to add to this area is gold. This color has always represented wealth historically. If purple isn’t your jam, try adding gold curtains or display items. Whenever you add these things, try to choose things that actually feel richer. Putting some cheap purple or gold thing in the corner may bring enhancements but the power can be stronger if you feel that the items in the area are high-quality. Your energy affects the feng shui in your home, too. So you don’t want to look at that corner and think “Look at those cheap purple and gold things over there.” You want to have good energy directed into the area to bring about good financial energy.
Another great enhancement in the area is water. Water is abundant so it’s no wonder that it would be associated with the prosperity area. This is also an enhancement in your career area. You can use images of water or things associated with water (such as seashells). You can also use a waterfall or aquarium in this area. Another possibility is to have a bowl of water in the area. The most important thing to keep in mind with live water is that it should be fresh. So if you decide to use a decorative bowl of water, the water will need to be changed out regularly so as to not develop dirt or other particles in it. One of my favorites to use is a picture of a peaceful waterfall.
One other creative approach to enhancing this area is to use money in the area. This is not a conventional Feng Shui enhancement but I have used this area to include a money bowl that I add money to. Unfortunately, if you have children in the home, you may see this bowl dwindle over time with promises of returning the money “someday.” You don’t have to use the money bowl, however. Perhaps you may have a safe with money in it, you can put it in this area. Or you may have a piggy bank, that will do. Maybe you still have your first dollar or 20 dollar bill that you ever earned. You can frame it and look at it every time you pass by the area and reflect on how wonderful it felt to make your first few dollars from your business or job.
