Where is my wealth sector?

Friday, December 20, 2002
By: Joey Yap

I think one of the most common questions professional Feng Shui practitioners are asked in any Feng Shui audit is “Where is my Wealth sector”. Wealth sector in Chinese is known as “Cai Wei”. Is there really a “wealth” sector in every home?

Yes…….and No. Wealth sector is a layman’s term. In actual Feng Shui terminology, we call this the “Wang Wei” or the prosperous location. There is not really a “money corner”, so to speak, in Feng Shui. When we say “prosperous” location, we are referring to a location within home where the Qi is strongest and most beneficial.

Feng Shui is about harnessing beneficial Qi and evading negative Qi. Beneficial Qi comes in many forms. To ascertain its location, Feng Shui practitioners use certain methods of calculation depending on which school of Feng Shui they advocate. In the Xuan Kong (Flying Stars) system, the Wang Wei is determined by the location of the most prosperous star of the period.

In Period 7 (1984-2003), the most prosperous star (meaning the most prosperous body of Qi) is governed by star number #7. The next best Qi, also known as “Sheng Qi”, is governed by Star number #8 as this is the prosperous star for the upcoming Period 8.

Similarly, a home can be said to have at least two “Cai Wei” or so called “Wealth sectors”. The trick is to locate these corners and activate them correctly to harness the beneficial Qi. It is important to note the “wealth luck” in Feng Shui does not refer to “money falling from the sky” or sudden windfall gains. The actual “luck” a “wealth corner” is said to bring when activated, actually refers to beneficial energies that help sharpen the mind, allowing residents to recognize opportunities and helping them perform better in their endeavors. WEALTH LUCK is a highly commercialized term. In Feng Shui, wealth luck means “heightened performance” for an individual, so that he/she can achieve better results career-wise and in turn, ensure better financial rewards.

Qi, like time, is dynamic and cyclical. Every year, the “Wang Qi” shifts from one direction to another. There is a yearly “wang” (prosperous) sector and a “shuai” (negative Qi) sector. In 2003, good Qi resides in the WEST sector while negative Qi resides in the South East.

Because positive Qi is coming in from the West this year (from Feb 4 onwards), it would be ideal to help facilitate this Qi by using a WEST direction door, or by using the WEST sectors more often. It is much better to actually use this sector rather than simply trying to activate it by placing an object here. After all, Feng Shui affects people, not necessarily objects, and the more the occupants of the house are affected by the Wang Qi, the more beneficial it is to them.

Should it be inconvenient or impossible to use the WEST sector or a WEST direction door, the next best alternative would be to allocate “yang” or moving objects in the West. The more activity (yang energy) you place in the Wang Qi area (meaning the West area), the more you can ‘activate’ its energies.

Conversely, the South East area of the home is afflicted by the most negative energy for the year 2003. This negative energy is borne by the #5 Star and it affects the area that it flies into; last year it was located in the East and this year it moves to the Southeast.

It would be best to use this area as little as possible. The less it is used, the more likely that the negative energies will not affect the occupants of the property. If you wish, you can further weaken (but not necessarily completely remove) the negative Qi by placing a metal wind chime in the South East sector. We need to use a wind chime made of the Metal element specifically. In the study of the Chinese Five Elements (which is also used in Chinese medical studies), Metal weakens Earth energies. The negative Qi that is coming in from the SE belongs to Earth and that is why, a Metal wind chime helps weaken its strength.
