Bringing nature inside your home or workspace will bring benefits to your health and the ambience around you. Jade money plants are believed to attract wealth, and bonsai trees have a spiritual significance and are used to attract good energy. Make sure you keep plants watered and remove any that are withered or dead as these sap energy. Rowers also have a positive effect: lotus flowers symbolise love and peace, roses are reminiscent of love and grounding.
The flow of water creates negative ions in the air which has a positive effect on the mind and body, which explains the soothing effect of sitting near a waterfall. A water feature will energise and invigorate your environment. A goldfish bowl with two goldfish is a sign of wealth and attracts positive energy.
LIGHT UP YOUR LIFE
Use lamps to create a soft glow in rooms where you relax. Make sure that working areas are well lit but avoid glare. UV filters on computer screens will prevent harmful electrical vibrations. If you opt for blinds, chose wooden ones as they are keeping with nature. Candles come in many different shapes and colours but use red, orange and maroon for the bedroom as these signify love and romance. White candles can be used in the dining area and are a sign of spiritual energy.

SOUNDS & SCENTS
Fill bowls with scented pot pourri. Lavender is calming and healing. Aromatherapy oils can be burned to infuse your environment with a tranquil scent to create a warm, relaxing and sensual mood. Use also when meditating or performing spiritual practices. Wind chimes can be hung outside your windows or indoors to attract a positive energy, and the sound will help you tune into the environment.
Jade is a highly favoured choice, but others that attract positive energy include ruby and emerald. Crystals have long been known for their powerful healing effects, so try amethyst for inner peace and protection from illness. Smoky quartz on your desk builds self-esteem and helps with concentration and imagination. Ornaments in the shape of a turtle, dragon or phoenix are considered lucky by the Chinese. Lions and doves are also auspicious symbols to place in the home. Bowls of coins or a conch shell should attract wealth your way.
