In China, you can see symbolic gold ingots and bowls (Yuen Bao) in many homes.
According to feng shui, these powerful amulets can bring wealth and greatness to any home. Despite the fact that our culture differs from the Asian culture, we can also benefit from having these powerful wealth symbols in our home. These attractive amulets can also add to a home's interior.
Gold ingots and bowls are best placed in one of 3 ways: in the southeast section of your home or room, next to a window, or next to the entrance door.
The southeast is the wealth zone of your home, so the amulets placed there will help you preserve and multiply your wealth. Placing them next to a window or the entrance door has to do with the belief that they attract wealth from "outer space". They can be placed next to a window: one bar in each windowsill corner. By the way, the larger the window, the more wealth energy the talisman will attract. Also, they can be placed next to the entrance door: one bar in the corner diagonally across from the door.
Examples of Amulets:
Gold Ingots - a traditional Chinese symbol of prosperity and greatness. It's also one of the symbols of the metal element. You can put the bars by themselves in the west or northwest section of your home - in the metal element zone. You can place them into your wealth vase, or put them in a talisman sailboat, which symbolizes wealth arriving to your home.
Gold Ingot Piggy Bank - this is another great amulet for the wealth sector (southeast). It can also be used for vessels of wealth filled with coins, sequins, jewelry, and all sorts of things that you associate with wealth.
Three-Legged Toad with Coins - this is the most popular symbol of wealth in feng shui. Most often, the toad is depicted seated on a pedestal of coins or ingots. The coin in its mouth represents wealth entering your home. The money toad can be placed in the sector of wealth or near the entrance door, on a low pedestal. The main thing is to put the frog with its back to the door, as if it jumped into your home. In order for the toad to work and bring you good luck, you need to wash it often - toads belong to the element of water and recharge from it.
Gold Ingot Jewelry Boxes - these boxes can be filled with jewelry made of precious metals or gemstones, and placed in the wealth corner.
There are many other similar amulets that you can find. Most of them are imitation gold items, rather than real gold. In fact, you can even make the gold bars yourself. All you need are solid rocks with no cracks, and gold paint. Paint the rocks with the paint, and you'll have your gold ingots. When looking for or making the bars, keep in mind that it's best to have them in an even number, such as two or eight.
