Feng shui is the art of placement of items in your home with the intent of bringing you good energy, prosperity, and happiness in your life. There are a number of feng shui schools of thought, but it really does not matter which school you follow. The only criteria for choosing a good feng shui cure is your connection to it and how much a specific cure speaks to you and the type of energy you want to bring into your home.
A sailing ship symbolizes the abundance brought by the winds and waters. The symbolic meaning of a feng shui wealth ship is similar, it is the energy of abundance arriving into your port (life). Placing a feng shui wealth ship in your home or office is believed to bring you better wealth and fortune, as well as increase the abilities of your business and profits.
Feng Shui Symbols for Wealth
The wealth ship is a popular traditional feng shui money cure because, unlike other Chinese feng shui money cures, such as the three-legged toad or the Chinese coins, the wealth ship looks great in any space and with any decor.
Other popular feng shui cures or ways to welcome wealth into your home include adding an aquarium or fountain, getting a lucky bamboo plant or a money tree, and making sure you close the lid to your toilet and shut the doors to your bathrooms. It is believed that water, symbolic for money, drains away from your home via the toilet.
The placement of mirrors for feng shui purposes can also strengthen the energy of abundance in your home or office.
About the Chinese Wealth Ship
You can use any model of a wooden boat for your feng shui wealth ship cure. The more that it speaks to you of the energy of incoming abundance, the better. As this feng shui cure is a symbolic representation of wealth, there are no strict feng shui guidelines other than your strong connection to its look and feel.
The are several ways to decide on the ideal placement of your feng shui wealth ship. The best location will be based on your home decor and your taste, as well as following some feng shui guidelines.
Placement of Your Wealth Ship
Since feng shui is all about the art of placement, then the place where you put your wealth ship has relevance, too. There are three potential spots that you should consider: the money area, the wealth star area, or your lucky direction in the home.
Determining where your home's feng shui money area is dependent on the feng shui school you follow. The wealth or money area is either considered to be the southeast corner of your home or office space (classical school) or the upper left area of your space as if you view it on a floorplan (western school).
It is also best if you can position your feng shui wealth ship so that its front points towards the inner part of the home and not away from it. Basically, you want the energy of abundance to come into your house (and your life) and not leave it.
