Feng Shui Tips For Warding Off The Recession
Are you worried about how the recession of 2009 is going to affect you? Are you frightened that you may suffer financial losses? There are some Feng Shui tips that you can take to help ward off money problems and help you and your family transcend the dire economic statistics that financial experts have been forecasting for the year 2009.
Your very first order of the day is to clean and scrub down your entire house and make sure that is free of clutter and chaos. There is no other hard and fast rule when it comes to making your home open and welcome to prosperity. When everything is in order and everything is in its place, you are showing the universe that you are willing to receive blessings of all kinds (including financial ones).
It also helps to get rid of anything that might be dried, dead, or dusty. This is especially true of any flowers that you might have around. Be sure to dust the tops of doors and hidden places where bad chi (energy) can gather and trip you up financially.
A protective poster or statue that you can put up is that of eight goldfishes plus one black fish. Eight carp or goldfishes symbolize wealth. The ninth black fish is added to absorb any bad luck that may come your way. This poster or statue is very popular in Asian cultures and easy to obtain online or at your local Chinatown.
Another effective Feng Shui tip to protect a business is to actually acquire an aquarium and fill it with eight orange carp and one black carp. You see this all the time in the reception areas of Chinese restaurants. The idea is that the orange carp glitter like coins and that one black fish absorbs any negative energy from people that might set foot in the place. Another Feng Shui belief to do with the aquarium is that if misfortune were to hit you it would hit the fish and not you. So in a sense, the fish, whether symbolic or real, act as a protective barrier against the cruelties of the recession.
Another tried and true protective measure against bad financial energy is to place four copper coins in each of the furthermost corners of your home. Copper has protective energy and helps hold your resources inside where they belong.
The ultimate in protective Feng Shui statues is Fu Dogs. These are guardians that are placed at either side of your door. The Fu Dogs are beasts that appear to be half dog and half dragons.
You can buy large stone versions of these dogs or you can buy very small ones and place them on either side of your door. The absolute correct placement of these protective dog statues has always been just outside the front door. Those who canít afford the large statues have often buried the smaller statues on either side of their front step. The protective energies from the Fu Dogs are similar in this respect.

I have got to move from this condo where I am living. I don't drive or have the money to find somewhere else. The woman across from me is president of the board of Associations and has written me up($25 fine) for absurb things since the first week that I have lived here. She hates windchimes and shoes outside the front door. Now there is a new rule that we can not do so. As soon as I took my windchimes down, I told my friend, she thought it was ridiculous also. She got sick suddenly and four days later she died. The snow plow service here totalled my car(I need money to get it ready to drive again)and denies doing it. Many negative other things happened. I put the windchimes back up and suddenly I have been approved for a disability income, my depression is gone, little positive things are happening. I blame myself for my healthy friends' dying and wonder if it was the windchimes. My old 15 dog can't go outside here without a leash. I need to move, this woman harasses me and yells obsenities at me and my son, but continues to write us up. I have had to take tranquilizers just to deal with living here and next door to her.
Will I move soon to a peaceful home and are the windchimes important to stay put up?

I had 2 dreams of winning the lottery over 10 years ago (1998). I first saw my mom and I jumping up and down, very happy..i knew it was money because I saw an amount lit up like (the jackpot) at the casino or something, then i month later I saw the machine..the balls fell and I saw all 6 numbers and never had to write them down. I have always wondered if it was a dream or a vision. I have played every drawing for the past 10 years... but have won not more than 7 bucks..it has been depressing believing it for so long..but I still play that same one number in hopes it was a vision and not a dream. I would love for SYLVIA to help answer this one for me....
The dream board...is a great idea..my family made one january of 2008 and I have Obama on my board..that is the first thing to provision..i'm hoping for the rest.....great suggestion though...
I like this comment page

My name is Malissa and I couldn't help but see your comments. My six year-old went thru a hard time a while back but is good now. Just a few mom to mom tips that helped us. You really need some one on one time with him. He needs to have an out. If things are as bad as you say they are then learn to create ways to escape the mundane of bad energy. Your son is picking up on that and he can't change whats around him. So you need to. Sit and do a dream board with him and do one yourself. It gives you hope of better days to come. And just having that time with him will really lift his spirits. You are the prize and maybe he feels you have invested so much into all the negative that he may feel not important or maybe forgotten about. And do as Sylvia says, clean out the clutter and even get your son some fish of his own. Maybe daddy is so depressed too he can't see how much his son needs him. Find an activity they both could enjoy. My son and husband do alot of sledding and four-wheeling. The time together is priceless and the fresh air is great. Good luck and god bless.
Sylvia, last nights web-class was wonderful. Wish I didn't have to wait so long for the next one. Thank you and god bless.
