Some items are considered “lucky objects,” and people incorporate them into their house decoration to bring luck to the home’s occupants. These include aquariums, living plants, tassels, and wind chimes; representations of tigers, dragons, and elephants; and statues of Guan Gong.
More specifically, an aquarium is considered to attract luck and bring prosperity into the house. It can be placed either outside the house or in the living room. Fish absorb negative chi, especially the blackmole (blackmoor) variety. It is a common practice for feng shui masters to use a fish tank as feng shui “cures.” Fountains and waterfalls are further considered to bring beneficial chi to a home.
The dragon, a symbol of authority, can be strategically placed in an office or a home to symbolize the authority and power. Place a dragon on the dragon wall (to the left when facing the front door) and make sure it does not appear to be heading toward the door or a window.
Tigers represent bravery and strength. They can be placed in a den or an office. A tiger should not have its mouth open or look as if it is “ready to pounce.” Place the tiger on the tiger wall (to the right when a person faces the front door).
The elephant, according to Buddhism, is a celestial animal. It is seen as a representation of morals and dignity. In feng shui it is an excellent good fortune symbol that represents power and prominence associated with the head of the family or company. Elephants also serve as house keepers and guardians. The elephants should be placed underneath of an interior exposed beam.
Guan Gong is a Chinese god still worshipped by many Chinese, especially in Hong Kong, who is based on one of the best known generals throughout East Asia, Guan Yu (160 A.D. – 219 A.D.). Guan Yu’s true life stories have been largely fictionalized and exaggerated in one of the most well-known Chinese classics Romance of the Three Kingdoms, and the historical figure has evolved over time to the status of the Chinese “God of brotherhoods,” representing the code of brotherhood and righteousness. In feng shui, a statue or image of Guan Gong ensures peace and harmony for all residents in a house, protection for the patriarch, and prosperity, and luck for all.
In feng shui, live plants and flowers are believed to alter or harness chi (positive energy). Practitioners place live plants at the up-right corner of a room when one is standing with their back to the door.
