The coins are usually made of bronze. They are used in odd numbers, such as 1, 3, 5, etc.
The coins can be used in a wide number of ways - they can be carried as a necklace or bracelet, they can be used to make wealth amulets (wealth vase, money frog, money tree, etc.), and so on.
In this article, we talk about wealth amulets that can be purchased or made using Chinese coins.
The easiest and most fashionable wealth amulets that one can have are necklaces and bracelets with coins. You can either purchase a talisman or make it yourself. It's very easy to make. You will need several coins (as many as you wish) and a red ribbon. Simply attach the coins to the ribbon and start wearing it. If you wear a lanyard (such as to carry an ID card for work or school), you can attach the coins to the lanyard. Alternatively, you can hang the amulet in the southeast section of your home - the Wealth and Prosperity zone.
Another way to incorporate the coins is to make a wealth vase. The wealth vase is an extremely potent feng shui amulet that can attract material well-being to your home. Typically, it's a white ceramic vase with paintings in blue, with a number of prosperity symbols placed inside. These symbols include: crystals, semiprecious gems, pictures with the symbols of wealth (houses, cars, gold bars), and others. Feng shui coins are one of the most essential ingredients to place into this vase. The vase needs to be placed in the Wealth and Prosperity zone of your bedroom.
You can also purchase wealth symbols that already have the coins incorporated into their design. One great symbol is a three-legged money frog. The frog is typically shown sitting on a pile of coins, holding one or three of them in its mouth. Some frogs come with a slit - you can purchase the coins and the toad individually, and insert the coins in its mouth. This symbol can also have the following design: the toad is sitting on the coins, and the god of wealth Liu Hai sits on top of the frog. According to ancient Chinese legends, Liu Hai conquered the frog and made it serve people.
You can also find wealth talismans with another god of wealth - Hotei, sitting on a pile of coins. Hotei was a happy monk who had an extraordinary ability - wherever he came, people would grow rich. This god of wealth has a large belly and charming smile. It's a real pleasure to have Hotei sitting on feng shui coins in your home.
Finally, the feng shui coins can be used for the making of a money tree. You will need the following components: Chinese coins with holes, wire, play-dough, and a flower pot. The coins need to be placed on the wire in the form of tree branches. The branches need to be made to look like a tree. The tree is placed into the flower pot and secured with play-dough.
The most important aspect to remember is: the more time and creativity you place into the making of your wealth symbol, the more potent it will be.
