Feng Shui: Money Corner in Living Room

Money is one of the most creative energies we have. However, many of us equate money with cruel and unfriendly experiences, and we unconsciously resist abundance.

But, if you retake a step and look at money as a creative energy that will flow easily towards you, it’s much more interesting, and a lot less intimidating.

According to the principles of the ancient teachings of feng shui, the money (wealth) corner is located in the back Southeast area of your house, store or office, and is associated with the element of wood and water.

Wood symbolizes money and wealth, while water symbolizes the flow (in this case the flow of money) and the supply of the new.

If this area of your house isn’t in order, you may experience problems with finances. The most common include excessive expenditure, debts, and inability to save or set money aside.

Although you may be trying hard, the first step is to keep this corner orderly and clean. Take care of it as if it is a diamond or treasure; clean up this corner at least once every fourteen days, wipe the dust and remove any dirt or useless things like papers, old books, broken cables or wilted flowers.

Recommended objects

Given that wealth corner is associated with the element of water and wood, which is typical for its abundance and diversity, it is appropriate to place on this area plants, flowers, small tree, wooden statue, fountain or anything else that symbolizes wood and water. A wooden bowl with three coins or a simple slice of wood (see picture above) might be a perfect idea.

Another great object is a bamboo chimes or an image of a creek in the woods. Blue and green are the main colors of the wealth corner, too.


  1. Find out where is your southeast (wealth) corner located
  2. Clear/clean out your money corner and remove any dirt or dust
  3. Place in the wealth corner objects with an element of wood and water and coins
  4. Do not forget to take care of this area of your home

Note that large companies tend to have flowers in the southeast corner (wood = symbol of wealth) and large aquariums (water = symbol of flow).
