Attracting Abundance: A Feng Shui Experiment

Inspired by a post at, I decided to embark on a test. It’s an experiment that spans the notions of the law of attraction, lucky feng shui directions, and unlimited abundance and wealth.

Written by The Spruce founder Rodika Tchi, the article discusses the use of the feng shui dragon symbol as a cure, or an adjustment to the energy balance in a space. Tchi notes (embedded links disabled):

As a popular feng shui cure, dragons come in many sizes and variations of color and materials. A green dragon, for example, is an excellent feng shui cure for the East – health feng shui bagua area – of your home, while a golden dragon can be a great feng shui cure for wealth and abundance.

Considering that my household has seemed abundance-challenged of late, I took my encounter with Tchi’s article as a nudge from the universe to work toward enhancing the prosperity energy in our home.

Thus far in my feng shui study and application, I have aimed to use or remove items already on hand to effect cures—repositioning furniture, eliminating clutter—and have generally limited my acquisition of new items to live plants, river rocks, and second-hand pieces. In particular, I’ve avoided bringing crystals and classic feng shui symbols into the home, such as foo dogs and the aforementioned dragons.

Then emerged onto my screen @MerriamWebster’s Twitter Halloween quiz—with a curved green dragon featured prominently.

The challenge to the universe that I didn’t even know I was seeking eventually became clear: (1) Attract a golden or green dragon to my space, (2) place the dragon in the prescribed area of my home depending on the dragon’s color, and (3) actualize the enhanced health or wealth abundance.

Because the law of attraction doesn’t abide by particular time frames, I can’t say when I’ll be reporting back on the results. In the meantime, my job is to feel intensely grateful for all that I have and to attract my dragon through meditation and feelings of happiness, joy, and being uplifted.

And with that, I wish you all good abundance and wealth and happiness. If you’re a student or master of feng shui, I’d love to hear from you about your experiences with making your world a better place.


As I was crafting this post in my head, I took the suggestion of my Pandora music app and selected my Thumbprint tracks. The app—or my high energy vibration? or the positive expectation?—started my listening session with two of my most welcome songs: “St. James Infirmary” and “Do You Know What It Means to Miss New Orleans.” I felt gratitude and bliss. The odds aren’t poor that these two songs would come up in succession; still, the happenstance engages, and I may equate that to abundance.
