Fengshui divides the world into five elements: fire, earth, water, metal, and wood. Each symbolises a specific emotion and can influence numerous aspects of our lives, such as wealth, health, and relationships. When decorating the interior of your home or office, it is always recommended to balance these elements for a harmonious atmosphere, as well as to give you an extra boost in your life.
But do you know? Gold is also a significant element in Fengshui.
Attracting wealth and prosperity
Gold has been synonymous with being a status symbol for the wealthy for a long time! And it is no surprise that those wanting to attract financial success have been encouraged to use gold in decorating their homes and offices, as well as, to wear them as jewellery pieces.
Some may want to take it a step further and have gold carvings of beings that are said to assist in financial success, such as the pixiu, toad, and Arowana fish. Sporting a pixiu, be it in the form of rings, necklaces, or bracelets is a classic go-to for those who wish to attract wealth, as this mythical creature is believed to only store gold but never release it!
The 999 Gold Ingot Pixiu Bracelet with 8mm Black Agate Beads is a huge favourite amongst our customers. However, wearing a pixiu has its own list of dos and don’ts so be sure to read our previous write-up on it. But if you prefer to shake up the interior decor of your home, you may be recommended to strategically place gold at certain locations, such as the entrance, office, and living room.
Boosting your level of vitality and energy
Sometimes, we may feel tired even without engaging in much physical activity, or we can feel like wanting to just collapse on the couch after barely completing our to-do list. You may want to start having gold in your home as it is the colour of warmth and vitality, to be included in areas that are dull to boost your energy levels.
While gold may be slightly tougher to blend into your interior decoration compared to other colours, having it used in the right manner will give your home a warm and welcoming touch. For those who prefer a contemporary take on this, you can use the following methods:
- Use bedsheets or comforters with pictures or patterns printed in the colour gold
- Replace your picture frames with yellow glittering edges in the living room
- Buy some gold-rimmed cups and plates for your kitchen
- Get curtains with gold-coloured designs or patterns
Those who lean towards a more traditional approach may place a gold statue of the Laughing Buddha in the living room, or a gold lucky waving cat at the main entrance.
Attract opportunities and benefactors
Having opportunities fall into our lap will surely be everyone’s dream come true. Furthermore, how many times have you seen others breeze through life, and have others around them help or mentor them through obstacles and opportunities?
In Fengshui, there is a term that frequently comes up known as “benefactors”. They are people who come into your life to guide and assist you, either by helping you break through barriers, or pushing you in a positive direction.
If you happen to find yourself in a tough spot or want to have a less bumpy journey ahead of you, why not try wearing gold jewellery, or include more gold-coloured items in your home? The reason that this element is preferred to attract benefactors and opportunities is due to its eye-catching colour, especially when exposed to light, easily drawing the attention of others to you. Another reason is due to it embodying abundance and security, guaranteeing that you won’t go without wealth and safety.
