Feng Shui Atrracts MoneyWritten by Sam Stevens
The first thing that you need to do is get yourself a good compass and determine what is in southeastern corner of your home. The Southeastern sector of your home governs both your cash flow as well as your faith in idea that you will always be able to create money. According to classic and traditional rules of Feng Shui (the ancient art of object placement to increase good energy in your life) items that you place in this part of your should be things that align with energies of personal abundance. Things that Create Prosperity: •The colors purple, red and green. These three colors support prosperity energy in a space. A pleasant still life to attract this energy is a pretty glass bowl containing a purple amethyst, a red carnelian and a green piece of jade. You also might want to consider painting this corner one of these colors or using purple, red and green lighting in this corner. An easy way to enhance color value in this corner is to purchase a lava lamp in purple, red or green. The great thing about a lava lamp is that it also moves, and in Feng Shui, anything electronic or moving helps keep money circulating in your life. •Symbols of wealth: Actual money and gold objects are good to display in this area of your house. A bowl of foreign or antique coins can also augment this sector. You can also find statues of "gold ingots" to your local China Town A wonderful statue to place in this area is of a Prosperity Buddha lifting a gold ingot over his head. You might also want to consider placing a gold or green statue of a Chinese Money Toad (this is a three legged statue of a frog or toad with a coin in it's mouth) or a statue of leaping goldfish •Fake Money. This is place to put that fake million-dollar bill you got in a novelty store in a frame and hang it. Some people even keep monopoly money in this area as a symbol of their circulating prosperity. A bowl of foreign coins can also be placed here to magnetize wealth into your life. •Fountain. This is one two best places in entire bagua to place a flowing fountain. The other is your Career sector. Flowing water represents flowing of money. The Chinese consider wood or bamboo fountains to be especially auspicious when placed in this area. •Goldfish. This is a great area to put an aquarium. Traditionally Chinese place eight orange or yellow gold fish and one black goldfish in an aquarium to attract money. The number 8 represents prosperity in Feng Shui. The idea too is that if misfortune hits your family, then ninth black goldfish will die and receive misfortune instead of you. You can also buy traditional Chinese poster of this image in Chinese specialty shops. •Eight Horses. This is an image of eight horses that can be purchased either a statue or as a poster that adds good chi to this sector. However please note position of your front door when positioning this poster. Make sure that direction horses are running is INTO house and not out front or back doors! You can buy this statue in gold, red, green, crystal and orange.

Divining Your Life Path NumberWritten by Sam Stevens
The Life Path is determined by sum that is arrived at after reducing your birth date by adding digits together. This number represents traits and talents that you were born with and probable journey you will take during your lifetime. First convert month you were born in to a single number. Let's use Angelina Jolie who was born in June 4, 1975 as an example. First convert month to a single number or master number. Note that when calculating months, double digit months such as September, October November and December do not reduce down to a single digit. For example November, which is 11th month, equates to number 2 after you add 1+1 together. Angelina Jolie's birthday does not reduce down to a single digit. Her birth month is sixth month of year. Her month number is 6. Your next step is to convert your day of birth to a single digit. For instance, if you were born on 17th then you would add 1 and 7 together to reduce number to 8. If you were born on 29th you would reduce to master number 11. In that case, further reduce number to 1. Angelina Jolie's birthday does not have to be reduced as she was born on 4th, so her number is 4. Next, add total digits of birth year and reduce them to a single number. Jolie's birth year is 1975 so you would add 1+9+7+5 to arrive at a sum that represents year number. In Jolie's case year is master number 22. This would be reduced to simply 2. Now add month sum, birth sum and year sum together. For Jolie it would be: 6+4+2 = 12 If you get a double digit, as is case with Angelina Jolie, reduce number down further. 1+2 =3 Angelina Jolie's Life Path number is a 3. Reduce your own birthday down to a single number and then find interpretation below that describes your journey. Those configurations that also result in a master number such as 11, 22 or 33 should read life path prediction for that number as well. For instance if your birthday reduces to 22 and then down to a 4, then you should read interoperations for both numbers 4 and 22. INTERPRETATIONS OF THE LIFE PATH NUMBER Life Path Number 1 If you are a 1, you are motivated by a need for soul freedom and personal attainment. Number 1s often have potential to be great leaders but often abysmally fail when it comes to teamwork and cooperation. For this reason, they make great entrepreneurs, freelancers, generals, commanders, CEOs and producers. Usually number 1's spend at least two thirds of their life trying to shake off emotional and financial shackles imposed on them by others. Their good looks vitality and lust for life is a source of awe for others who often admire their stamina and ability to get their act together. However sometimes a person traveling number 1 Life path can be self-absorbed, pushy and overwhelming. Their aggression and ambition is often interpreted as hostility and selfishness. Number 1s who stray from their paths often end up in clingy codependent relationships with mentally ill or addicted partners. If you are a number 1 and experiencing this kind of situation, it is a definite message that you are failing your life's purpose to become self-sufficient in life.
Life Path Number 2 Those following a number 2 Life Path tend to be diplomatic, sensitive individuals. As they have an inherent sense of morality and fairness, they tend to be indecisive as they can clearly see both sides of any conundrum or argument. They often make great judges, mediators, lawyers, counselors or social workers because they have an incredible talent for resolving disputes. These loving, optimistic individuals prefer to see only best in others. They are honest almost to point of fault. Number 2's never "stoop to conquer" and consider themselves to be above arguing with others. Number 2s function best in nine to five jobs where routine is same every day. Erratic behaviors, drama queens and overt displays of physical affection upset them. These natural collectors are also pack rats and are type to keep everything that they have owned since birth in attic or basement. As they are also very sentimental and nostalgic, many of them collect antiques and photographs of loved ones. As life purpose of a number 2 is to bring harmony to group situations it is very important for them to get out and socialize. A number 2 that is isolating has strayed from his or her life path. Pessimism, lethargy and depression usually identify this. The best way for a number 2 to get back on right path is to find a job that involves working with general public or to find a way to practice acts of charity or philanthropy. Life Path Number 3 Followers of Life Path number 3 are effervescent personalities whose journey often leads to artistic acclaim or social popularity. Number 3s are entertainers of world and most of them are truly gifted musicians, writers, actors, dancers, public speakers and politicians.

Number 3's are also excellent chefs and hosts and boast exquisite taste in fashion and home decoration. They are often sought after socially as others find them physically as well as spiritually beautiful. Usually a number 3 is quite stubborn and plays to win no matter how high cost of success. Their unusual stamina and vigor makes it easier for them to rebound from setbacks in life than most people. Often these setbacks are of a financial or romantic nature as their idealism and spontaneity sometimes causes them to make bad choices. However a number 3 is usually quite humble and very capable of being honest with themselves about their mistakes. Number 3's stray off their life path by giving up their dreams and talents. Many escape into alcohol or drug abuse to avoid hearing nagging voice of their constant inspiration. Your exuberant nature can take you further than most people, especially if you give yourself permission to focus your energies and talents.
