- Feng Shui Gem Tree
Have you heard of a money tree? Cool stuff, right? But have you heard of a Feng Shui Gem Tree? Now that is even cooler.
Gem trees or crystal trees are traditionally used as enhancers in feng shui. Like most feng shui items, it helps bring in positive energy and create a harmonious flow of life force energy or chi when placed in homes or offices.
With the many kinds of crystals used for a feng shui tree, it’s important to know what benefits each one gives. Crystals have unique vibrations that attract certain energies when placed in spaces. A jade crystal tree is often used for enhancing the health area, rose quartz is used for love, and a citrine money tree helps bring in wealth.
For business owners, it’s recommended to put a citrine money tree in your office. Place it in the Southeast area of your home or room to attract wealth and abundance.

- Dragon Items
Known as a long-time symbol of power, success, and wealth, the dragon is a legendary beast in feng shui. It attracts positive energies and brings financial abundance and career growth opportunities into your life.
The dragon is one of the best mythical creatures believed to have immense power to bring good luck to your home, business, or office. That’s why there are a lot of different items made with its images such as metal figures, accessories, crystal spheres, and more.
Our Prosperity Dragon Crystal Sphere is a great example of a dragon sphere that not only attracts good fortune but is an eye-catching display too. Place one in your home facing any source of water as it is said to boost the water’s wealth, prosperity, and opportunity.
- Wealth Bracelet
Would you rather have your good luck charm with you wherever you go than just have it in your home or office? Then a Red Agate Pixiu Piyao Bracelet is an awesome feng shui item for you!
Pixiu or Piyao is a hybrid of the powerful mythical dragon. It is recognized as a creature of prosperity in Chinese folklore as it is said to devour all the riches in the world and keep them forever. Together with the red agate stone, this bracelet can help you attract wealth and luck.
The red agate is said to promote clarity of mind, helping you make important decisions especially when it comes to your career or business. Wear this bracelet on your receiving hand (left) and activate its power to enhance your life.
Put green plants in your officeFeng Shui suggests placing green plants in one’s workspace. Whether you work at home or in the office, placing a plant in front of your table brings positive energy to a dull area.
Having plants in your workspace allows you to work better, increasing creative work and productivity with the good energy it attracts. It’s also said to boost one’s health and improve your working conditions.
When choosing a plant to place in your office, use real ones and avoid cactuses or any plants with thorns, sharp-edged leaves, or too many flowers. Having fake plants may seem enticing because of the aesthetics without the responsibility of taking care of a living thing. However, this could only attract negative energy or even drag your mood and self-esteem.
Place crystals on your desk’s right-hand corner
Crystals have always been recognized to attract a great flow of energy that brings in positivity, good luck, and good fortune.
Place crystals like Tourmaline or Clear Quartz on the right-hand corner of your work desk. By doing this, you’re fighting off stressful energies at work. It also reduces your chances of being conned by people who have no good intentions, while bringing in positive energy and assisting you with work.
Tourmaline, specifically a black one, improves one’s career and helps bring more clarity to your path in life.
Clear Quartz is a fantastic stone to place in one’s office area as it inspires healing, promotes clarity, manifests desires, and cleanses energy.
As healing crystals deal with negative energy all the time, their acquired toxic vibrations eventually make them heavy and dull. This is why you need to cleanse them with clear quartz. This gemstone recharges other crystals, helping bring them back to their natural state.
