In feng shui, the wealth and prosperity area has to do with receiving blessings and abundance and feeling as if affluence is your natural state.
When the wealth and prosperity area (the far left corner of your feng shui floor plan when facing the house from your front door) is activated and flowing, you feel as if wealth flows into your life experience easily and copiously, and that when you work in order to receive wealth it’s a natural, harmonious effort that is so in alignment with what you love that in many ways it’s effortless.
In the I Ching, this area is aligned with “gentle breeze,” and the natural imagery I find that characterizes it most accurately is that of sitting on a beach on a warm but comfortable day, feeling a gentle breeze blowing through your hair and simply enjoying your vacation. Perhaps someone brings you a cool drink with a bendy straw, and you just luxuriate in the moment and all the blessings that surround you. This is an aspect of your inner reality when the energies associated with this area are flowing ideally in your life.
In your home, wherever this area falls, it will be a priority to make sure that it feels luxurious and affluent. It doesn’t have to actually be filled with expensive items, but you might put out a little extra effort to make it feel as if you spared no expense in the decor. For example, if your bathroom falls into this area, something as simple as a new, plush bathmat might make all the difference between a feeling of affluence and a feeling of…not affluence.
Colors associated with this area are purple, blue, green, red, and perhaps accents of metallic gold. It is not necessary to have all these colors in this area, and again a feeling of affluence is the first priority, but knowing the colors can sometimes give you a good frame of reference for what might feel good here.
Imagery associated with this area would be anything that feels abundant, such as a waterfall, a fountain, a beach scene (like the one at the top of this post), a full bowl of fruit, or an orchard in fruit. Lush forest and nature scenes can also feel wealthy and abundant.
If this area is in your bedroom, you might like to choose deep red bedding and choose imagery with less water (perhaps no more than 15% of any nature scene) to create a more grounding feeling for intimacy and relationships.
If this area lies outside your home, you might like to symbolically complete the space with a fountain that flows out in 360 degrees, or a prosperity-drawing tree such as pine or eucalyptus. If this isn’t possible, you could also bury a citrine or amethyst quartz point to energetically complete the space. If you don’t have jurisdiction over the outdoor area, you could hang a mirror on the bordering wall, or art with depth (see imagery recommendations above) in order to bring in the illusion of space.
