Many business owners are fond of displaying figurines related to prosperity. We often spot these lucky charms in stores—placed on a shelf or hanging by the entrance to invite good sales.
After the year that everyone’s experienced, it wouldn’t hurt to join in and hope for a little extra help for a better year. Here are some of the Feng Shui activators to help enhance your business success during the year of the metal ox this coming 2021.
In Feng Shui art, the most important thing to remember is the use of space and the flow of energy. Traditionally, the Northern and Southeastern areas or corners are the “wealth area” of a space, representing career and money. So keep this in mind when placing your chosen charms.
The ox is faithful, honest, responsible, and profoundly loyal. It’s one of the most loved signs of the Chinese zodiac. It’s also the first of the zodiac signs set to win the cycle next year. The Lucky Ox is generous to humans, has a deep sense of justice, and is reliable, which is why it will give you the necessary strength to overcome obstacles and ensure the loyalty of those around you. Place an image of the Ox sitting on a bed of coins in the northwest section of your business space.
One of the four celestial beings, the dragon is an extremely important and powerful Feng Shui symbol — being the most powerful and sacred creature in Chinese culture. It’s considered the supreme symbol for luck, abundance, power, and honor. For 2021, the golden dragon is believed to be a powerful activator of success.
Available in various sizes, the Money Tree is another famous ornament that’s believed to bring business and financial luck. It’s the Feng Shui remedy plant of 2021. For the incoming year, add multicolored stones including amethysts to the tree to attract good energies of prosperity, happiness, and luck. An Amethyst Quartz Gemstone Money Tree is especially good for the office as it balances energies between coworkers and bosses. Aside from placing it near the cash register, you may also display the money tree at the southeast corner of your office.
Known as the Buddha of Happiness in Feng Shui, the Laughing Buddha is said to be the luckiest charm for businesses. The Laughing Buddha brings abundance, wealth, and joy into the home and
a place of business because nothing makes him happier than to see our problems and worries go away. If you plan to display one, don’t settle for a small statue; pick one that’s big and has a large belly to rub. The rounder the belly, the more auspicious the buddha, and rubbing the belly is believed to make your wishes come true. Place the Laughing Buddha on your office desk or in the southeast sector of your place of work to attract wealth.
Also known as the Feng Shui coins, they are round coins with a square-cut center and Chinese characters engraved on them, usually tied with red rope or silk. These coins are well-known symbols of good fortune. The round shape represents heaven and the square center-cut symbolizes earth. This combination attracts positive energy from the heavens and earth. It’s common to receive one coin inside a sealed red Ang Pow envelope for businesses as a symbol of wishing luck and fortune to the owner. For the year of the Ox, the Chinese believe it will bring in extra luck and wealth when you hang three i-ching coins on the inside front of your doorknob. This invites fortune in. For those in retail, it’s best to always have these coins with you to bring your business luck and prosperity.
These are regularly found in banks, casinos, and foreign exchange markets. The tree brings abundance, happiness, and harmony while the dragon-like creatures, Pixiu/Pi Yao, are extremely powerful mystical hybrid animals. They’re also known as the chimera or winged lions. They act as the protectors of Feng Shui followers and of the tree. It’s said that Pi Yao will always do its best to satisfy the wishes of its owner with its protective, obedient, and loyal nature. For 2021, this figure is a powerful activator for business people and merchants to increase their earnings.
Similar to the charms listed here, the Money Frog can also attract wealth and good business. Available in gold or porcelain, many feng shui experts claim that the Money Frog is the most significant symbol of prosperity. For 2021, it’s advised to get the golden one. The figurine depicts either a frog sitting on coins or one with a coin in his mouth. This is often displayed on the northern side of the space or near the entrance and should be facing inward, never outward.
Many hang the bagua above a door as it analyzes energy in a space. This feng shui item involves the 8 areas (hence the octagon shape) that are essential in one’s life, like health and family, wealth and abundance, and love and marriage, to name a few. It also acts somewhat like a dream catcher wherein the center mirror absorbs and traps any unlucky and negative energy, and the outer octagon spreads positive energy.
Known to ward off negative energy, the Feng Shui Coin Sword is used for wealth, protection, and business. There are feng shui practitioners who display two coin swords that form an X on their doors to ward off envious and jealous neighbors.
Whether it’s a restaurant or a store selling different goods, you’ll surely spot this golden cat cheerfully waving at you. Known to bring prosperity, this feline figurine can be placed in any area where you want luck to come in. Many business owners prefer placing it near the entrance or the cashier.
Incense sticks are believed to drive away negative energy and evil spirits, even during the dreaded ghost month. There are different kinds of incense depending on what you’re wishing for, but red ones are commonly used by many business owners to wish for business growth.
2021 is the Year of the Metal Ox, directly after the year of the Metal Rat, which signifies a good year full of business and career opportunities. It’s also the year for good relationships, whether in love or partnerships. In the Chinese Zodiac, the Ox is very hardworking and methodical, so 2021 is a year when work will be greatly rewarded. That means you’ll be lucky and wealthy this coming year if you put considerable effort into your business.
While you can always buy two or three of these charms, remember not to completely depend on them when it comes to the success of your business. After all, nothing beats hard work and perseverance.
