The feng shui bagua (energy map) has an area dedicated to wealth! It’s called Xun in Chinese and it’s the top left corner of the bagua. You can locate this area of your bedroom or home if you stand in the door to your bedroom (or the front door to the home) and the far left back corner is the wealth corner.
Here are some suggestions on how to activate the wealth corner of your home:
- Purple - add the color purple with accessories, paint, or furniture
- Plants - add living green house plants to grow your wealth
- Water - add water features to nourish your wealth

We love our crystals here at the Spruce! Citrine is our favorite crystal to attract wealth. This vibrant gold-toned quartz not only attracts wealth but assists in continually renewing your prosperity. It’s one of the only crystals that can clear itself. It doesn’t hold onto negative energies. In turn, it encourages wealth to flow into your life with good health and ease.
Try placing citrine in the wealth corner of your home.
Pro-tip, also carry citrine in your wallet for an extra boost of qi in your pocketbook.

In feng shui, flowing water is connected to your flow of finances and abundance. Pay attention to the plumbing in your home. Make sure there are no leaks or water damage. If there are plumbing issues, fix them!
Placement of moving water, like a fountain, can bring this flowing water element into your home. Be sure to keep the fountain clean, in good repair, and direct the water towards the center of your home. If you want to work with an exterior fountain, it’s best in the front of your property with the water directed towards the front door.

Continue to 5 of 6 below.
- Deep clean the entire entry area regularly. Be sure to give attention to the door frame, door number, handle, and other neglected areas.

- Black for water element, more flow and connections
- Red for fire element, visibility and recognition
- White or gray for metal element, efficiency and joy
- Yellow or brown for earth element, stability and grounding
- Green or blue for wood element, growth and new beginnings
- Be sure to walk through your formal front door at least once a day.

Activate the stove
The stove is symbolic of your resources and wealth in feng shui. If we can cook and nourish our bodies well, we can also show up in the world with our best foot forward.
To improve your wealth feng shui, keep your stove in tip-top condition. Make sure all the burners are working and the appliance is clean. You also want to use the stove everyday to activate your fire energy to attract prosperity.
Pro-tip: Rotate your burners! What we mean is, change up the burner you use every day. We often get into a default mode where we just mindlessly go to our “favorite” burner. Instead, try changing that up. Mindfully use a different burner each time you use the stove to open your mind and energy up to receive new opportunities.

A bowl of oranges
Oranges are a symbol of wealth and good luck in feng shui. Oranges and feng shui both originate in China. Even the scent of an orange is uplifting and vibrant.
Our favorite way to work with oranges and feng shui is to include a bowl of fresh oranges in your living room or kitchen. It can invite wealth and auspicious energy into your home. Yes, you can eat them!
