feng shui gift Lucky Feng Shui Symbols In A Chinese Shop

Feng Shui is a Daoist based vision of the natural world; alive and filled with “Chi”, or energy. The ancient Chinese believed the land’s energy (chi) could be positive or negative (yin or yang).Yin and Yang are two opposites in the Living Universe. While they are opposite, it is also true that one cannot exist without the other. Without night there is no day and without black there would be no white. These energies are constantly interacting with each other in our daily lives. Practitioners of the yin-yang concept advocate the need of a balance the two forces. This is where The Art of Feng Shui fits in. Feng means “Wind” and Shui means “Water” and Feng Shui is the “art of living in harmony with the earth”. When we live our lives in balance and harmony, we are filled with happiness, contentment, and abundance.

A few of the Feng Shui icons and symbols, thought to activate the positive energies of fortune, good luck and prosperity.

The Laughing Buddha
The Buddha Has A Protective Supernatural Power. Born 2600 Years Ago; The Buddha Is the Symbol Of Luck, Happiness, Laughter, and Contentment. The Laughing Buddha brings prosperity, success and financial gains to the occupants in the house, shop or restaurant. The placement of the Laughing Buddha is very important. It has to sit at a height of approximately 30 inches, and should be facing directly at the main door. Hence, a visitors “energy” entering from the main door is greeted by the Laughing Buddha and the energy is activated to become more auspicious.

Ancient Chinese Coins
The Coins should be hung on the inside of the doors, so as to be deemed already inside a house. Always use three, six, seven or eight coins, rather than four or five, as these numbers are considered very auspicious and lucky. When placing these coins always stick them with the yang side up; the side which has the 4 Chinese characters written on it, should be above and visible and the other side, with the two characters, should be below. In business, three coins tied with ribbon or string, are use to activate, or bring in, the flow of money or luck. In your office, business or home they bring prosperity, wealth and luck and symbolize a never ending source of income Ancient Chinese Coins tied with a ribbon or string are very auspicious gifts, since the act of giving, in itself is most auspicious, we double our own luck each time we give some away.

The Dragon
The Dragon symbolizes power, benevolence, intelligence, goodwill, mystery, yang energy, strength and goodness. In restaurants, shops, and department stores, it is very good to display pictures of Dragons in the East, wherever a lot of yang energy and movement is desirable.

The Phoenix
The Phoenix is one of four ancient Chinese sacred animals (among The Turtle, The Dragon, and The Unicorn). A universal symbol of the sun, rebirth, resurrection and immortality, this legendary red “fire bird” was believed to die in its own flames, periodically (each hundred years, according to some sources) then rise again out of its own ashes. It symbolizes the luck of wish fulfillment and brings opportunities, fame and recognition. The luck in the Southern corner of our home or office, can be activated by placing the Phoenix there. The image of the Phoenix at a distance, also symbolizes farsightedness, which is essential for any intelligent businessman.

The Fortune Toad
The Fortune Toad, a three-legged toad called “Chan Chu” in Chinese, holds a coin in its mouth and has strings of coins around its feet. It should be placed facing the door to catch the money of passers-by. The Fortune Toad is the most significant symbol of prosperity in Feng Shui. It is often sitting on top of a bed of Chinese gold coins, with one coin fixed within the mouth so it will always stay in place. It is linked to the moon and associated with monetary gain, wealth and good health. Chinese legends say that the Fortune Toad was the wife of one of the Eight Immortals. She was turned into a Toad as punishment for stealing the peach from heaven. Naturally greedy, she craves for money and wherever people see a Three Legged Toad, there is prosperity to come. Since ancient China, this mythical Money Toad protects against misfortune and brings good fortune and wealth to the household. In a store it can be on or near the cash register, facing the direction of the door.
