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.

Is this why my fish are sick all the time? Are they absorbing the negativity? My life is pure hell, how bad would it be if I didn't have the fish? I shudder at the thought! Thanks for all the help Sylvia, I love you to pieces and may God bless you always!

Sylvia, I had a dream in 2005 about winning the lottery and in this dream I was given the numbers. I have played and came very close, but still have not hit the jackpot. I had another dream that year and my grandfather told me,"When you win write your mother a check and pay off her house." In that same year I had another dream and my grandmother, not his wife, she told me that I am doing fine in my life and I will see this money very soon. What do I make of these dreams? I have also had several more and it has told me where to buy my tickets and another showed me the cashier face. What in the world?!#*

How can we buy feng shui items of good luck when we have no money in the first place. I need positive outlooks so my negativity goes elsewhere. How can one be posisitve at work, when they share an office space with a person who is negative?
