As the economy recovers from the financial crisis, many employees are hoping for a bonus this year. The amount will depend on how well your industry and company have fared over the past 12 months, but you can play your part by ensuring that there are no fung shui violations to generating wealth in your home. Make sure that the front door does not open to another window or the balcony - even if that would allow you to appreciate beautiful views upon entering your home. Otherwise, the chi that enters through the door would immediately exit through the balcony, preventing it from accumulating. This would drain your financial resources. To rectify the situation, place a screen or furniture between the door and window to redirect the flow of chi. A frequent violation in fung shui with regards to the loss of wealth is to have the front door opening to the back door. But this is not common in Hong Kong, where most apartments tend to have only one back door or have the back door located at the other end of the unit. Neither should you place a mirror directly opposite your main door, which would deflect the positive chi that enters your home. Some people think that having a mirror in this position may provide a feeling of opening up your home, but this may actually result in financial problems for the occupants. The wealth sector as per the Flying Stars method is located in the centre this year and in the northwest next year. Tap into the wealth energy by ensuring that this sector in your home is not blocked or cluttered. You can stimulate this sector by placing a water fountain that allows the movement of water to stimulate the wealth energy. Keep in mind that fung shui is only part of the overall picture. If your work performance has not been satisfactory, even the most elaborate fung shui techniques will have limited success.
