There are many ways you can use feng shui to attract wealth, prosperity, and abundance. One simple method is to decorate your home and office with feng shui money cures that appeal to your taste and suit the overall decor. Start by locating your feng shui money area, and be sure to take very good care of it so that the energy in your space feels fresh and vibrant.

Keep in mind that attracting wealth and good luck involves more than cures and feng shui symbols. Old feng shui masters affirm that good feng shui alone does not bring you wealth if you do not strive for wealth. Rather, it gives you the necessary support to seek fame and fortune.
