Birds - Keep a red bird, such as a parrot, in South areas. Red is the traditional Chinese color for protection. Don't ask for feathers from others. Hang feathers that you find near your front door. These feathers represent protection for you and your family. If your feathers blow away, try to find others to replace them. Don't throw feathers away if you find them. Don't keep your pet bird caged; confining it means that your wealth will be limited. Keep birds in the Southwest when they are in pairs to strengthen your romance, love, marriage or motherhood area. Put a pair of metal cranes in the North area of your garden with a water element. The crane has long been associated with good fortune, wealth, wisdom and longevity for the patriarch and matriarch of a family. Use a statue of a rooster to offset the divisive effects of ceiling beams and interior pillars and posts. The bird's beak should be aimed directly at the offending spot. Use a ceramic rooster to mitigate the dreaded symbol of illness and affliction, the centipede. A "centipede" is a lammpost outside your house or window that has three or more crosspieces intersecting the main posts. Point the rooster's beak directly toward the centipede. Put doves carved in wood in South areas to fuel the element of fire there and increase longevity. Improve your relationship with your partner by putting a pair of Mandarin ducks, a male and female, in the Southwest areas. These ducks represent marital devotion, fidelity and happiness because they are deeply attached to each other. When separated, the birds are believed to pine away to the point of death. Use two wild geese, which always fly in pairs, in the relationship and marriage area of your bedroom, the Southwest. These animals are messengers of good news and represent the married state. Use figurines of a pair of lovebirds in the Southwest corner of your home, garden or bedroom to enhance the romance aspect of your life. Put statues of eagles or hawks outside and away from your house for protection. Good locations are at the bottom of a driveway or on either side of a gate. Don't display statues, pictures or other images of predatory birds with their victims clasped in their talons or hovering about their dead or half-eaten prey. Use magpies as decorations in South areas. They are harbingers of joy, happiness and festivity and are good luck omens. If they set up residence near your home, in your trees or under your eaves, good fortune is sure to follow.
Coins - Tie three coins, either ancient Chinese coins or silver dollars, together with red cord or string and hang them on the inside of the main door to your home. This gesture keeps your prosperity inside your home and is especially effective if your front entrance faces one of the metal directions, West or Northwest. Don't hang any coins on your back door; this represents money leaving your premises. Wear Chinese coins in any combination of jewelry, such as earrings, bracelets, brooches or rings, to attract good fortune. Tape three Chinese coins to the underside of your telephone to encourage it to ring more often. Hang a hallow-rod wind chime or crystal above the telephone.
Colors - Use aqua or turquoise in the Northeast to enhance knowledge, wisdom, self-development, experience and in the East to promote family, harmony, growth, vitality, prosperity and youth. Use brown, beige or tan to represent spring, youth, prosperity, family, harmony, nutrition, strength, growth and vitality. Don't use black in bedrooms or on the walls or ceilings of any room, and don't combine it with yellow or use it in an earth area (SW or NE). In the North, it enhances business success, career, and new beginnings but it also represents mourning, evil and guilt. Use blue in the North to attract business success, and in the East to enhance family, harmony, growth and health. Don't use blue in the earth areas (SW and NE) or wear it in a ribbon or bow in your hair; it is one of the traditional Chinese mourning symbols. Use metallic gold in the West to enhance children, children's fame, creativity, business and career success, supportive people, trade, travel, prosperity, wealth and interests outside the home. Don't use metallic gold in bedrooms, as it destroys health and harmony, or in East areas (representing health, prosperity and family) or SE areas (wealth and prosperity.) Use non-metallic gold in NE areas to enhance wisdom, knkowledge and scholarly success. It also enhances SW (the area of marriage, motherhood, love and relationships.) Don't use non-metallic gold in the North, which represents business and career success. Non-metallic gold represents earth and earth destroys water, the symbol of financial prosperity.
Cows - Put a wooden figure of a wishfulfilling cow on your desk in the SE or East area. Use a metal figure in the West or SW, or a ceramic one in SW or NE locations. These placements will encourage wealth. The cow represents spring and is revered because it pulls the plow to prepare the fields from which the harvest comes.
Crystals - Clear your new crystals by running them under cold water (preferably sea, holy or purified water - don't use tap water) to wash away the energies of all the people who have handled them before you. Let the water drip down from the point. Purify natural crystals before using them by gently rinsing them in rainwater, the ocean, or a solution of sea salt and cold water (mixed in a glass or ceramic container, not a metal or plastic one.) Bury them in the earth for at least three days and up to one moon cycle or store them under pyramids. Don't keep your colored crystals in the sunlight, as it will cause them to fade. Do recharge your crystals by placing them out in the moonlight as often as you can. Hang two white, red, gold or pink heart-shaped crystals in the SW corner of your bedroom to activate love, marriage and relationships. Put crystals in multiples of eight in the NE area of your office or study if you want to excel in your work or incease your intuitive and thinking powers. Put them in the NE area of your child's bedroom to help her or him do well academically. Use crystals in the earth areas of SW (marriage, relationships, romance, love), the earth area of NE (knowledge, wisdom, self-development), and especially the metal area of W, because earth creates metal, which is made into coins and represents wealth. Place six crystal balls in the NW, another metal area, to bring supportive people into your life and to strengthen the power and influence of the male head of the household.
If only your "positive" beliefs given were materialized then you would never clearly comprehend the power of your thought, for you would not completely experience its physical results. Jane Roberts
Someday, after we have mastered the winds, the waves, the tide and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love. Then, for the second time in the history of the world, we will have discovered fire. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
