The Significance of Chinese Coins in Feng Shui
Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice that uses important symbols to bring positive energy and luck into your home and life.
One such symbol is that of Chinese coins. If you are interested in feng shui, you have probably seen these coins tied with a red string and wondered what they mean.
In feng shui, Chinese coins are powerful and meaningful charms that you can wear around your home to attract wealth, good fortune, and prosperity.
Chinese coins were once currency in ancient China, so it makes sense that they represent wealth and abundance.
They are considered one of the eight treasures along with the pearl, the diamond, the stone bell, the rhino horn, the mirror, the book, and the leaf, all symbols of good fortune and prosperity.
Meaning of Chinese coins
These ancient Chinese coins are circular in shape with a perforated square in the middle. The shapes of the coins are significant.
The circle represents the influence of the heavens on the earth, which is symbolized by the square.
There are different currencies that were created during various historical periods in China.
- The most popular are the following:
- Wuchu coin of the Han dynasty
- Tang dynasty
- Song dynasty
- Kang Xi Coin
You will usually find Chinese coins tied with a red or yellow ribbon or string so you can hang them on the wall. The color red is auspicious in feng shui and symbolizes vitality, protection, and vital energy.
The yellow color is linked to the imperial court and also
Replicas vs. Antiques
Ideally, try to buy authentic ancient Chinese coins made of copper. But if that's not possible, it's okay to use the best quality replicas you can find or buy.
Your intention and effort count and affect the power of feng shui adjustments.
In fact, there are beautiful and artistic replicas made of jade, gold, or other precious materials that enhance the symbolism of the coins.
Ways to use Chinese coins for Feng Shui
Activate the wealth area
You can activate the wealth area of your home with Chinese coins. To find the wealthy area of your home, stand at the front door and look inside.
The left corner is the wealth-related area of the house. If you are using traditional compass methods, the wealth area would be to the southeast.
The front door of your house is very important in feng shui because it is where the energy flows into your house.
Placing a couple of Chinese coins with a red string above or strategically near the front door can bring wealth and prosperity to the family.
The area you work in, such as your home office or work desk, represents your career and prosperity.
It makes perfect sense to encourage financial success by using Chinese coins and feng shui to attract good energy and wealth in all of your professional endeavors.
Try a set of ten coins tied with a red or yellow string that hangs behind your chair or near your office entrance.
The ten coins represent the ten emperors and invite money from a legitimate and honorable source.
Along with other symbols of wealth
You can also combine Chinese coins with other feng shui symbols (such as elephants, the mystical knot, gods of wealth, etc.) to increase and invite prosperity, wealth, and good luck.
You can often find the feng shui money frog (which is a three-legged frog) perched on a bed of Chinese coins.
Your wallet is where you keep your currency, credit cards, and identification and is related to your wealth and cash flow.
Try putting some Chinese coins in your wallet to create a money magnet. While you're at it, make sure your wallet is in good condition (or better yet, buy a new one!).
Keep your coin and cards in order and well organized.
Using Chinese coins
Chinese coins can be worn on your body as powerful charms to attract wealth and protection. A set of nine coins (in total) used as gems gives special luck.
Coins are also enlarged when hung on a gold chain or red string.
