The Best Places to Put Those Lucky Charms

This is inspired by my mother.

My mom is an avid believer of lucky charms (and bad lucks as well). In her garden you’ll see lots of money and luck-related plants. She would immediately discard a plant or anything that she learns that brings bad luck.  Anywhere else inside and outside her residence you’ll also see different lucky charms. A person who believes in lucky charms is also one who is a very superstitious kind of a person because this is what I have seen in my mother and others who believe in lucky charms.

Lucky charms recommended by Feng Shui weaken negative energy and strengthen positive energy. For this to happen, they should be installed in the right place.

Bagua Mirror

This lucky charm should be installed outside the house, particularly on top of the main door where it returns the poison arrow from the opposite house hat could be hitting your main door. A poison arrow could be the sharp edge of roof of your neighbor or bended iron grills of a gate pointing your house. These provide negative energy at your home and should go back where they came from by installing a Bagua mirror.

Money Frog

A frog with a coin on its mouth or money frog should be facing opposite the main door and facing the living room which means prosperity is entering or getting inside your home. It is known as Chan Chu in Chinese which means “toad” or “frog”, especially the “Lucky Money Toad” or “Three-legged Money Frog”. It is also believed to drive away evil, protect wealth, and increase income.


Use white, silver, gold curtains in your study area for luck. The same goes with your work area. These colors are considered lucky for these areas.

Your aquarium should be positioned in the north and southeast.  Keep the water clean to attract money luck. If you’re going to place it in the north, it doesn’t just attracts money luck but attracts luck in career as well.

Water Fountain

Like an aquarium, a water fountain should be place in the north or in the southeast also.  This lucky charm also brings money and career luck.

A bat figurine should be place in the living room because it is believed that it brings a healthy and lucky life.

It should be noted also that thrash cans/rubbish bins should be place in the toilet or in hidden areas. They should not be displayed because it absorbs positive energy that supposedly circulating inside the house.

    All those sound so much better to me than the “Rabbits foot” which cannot possibly be lucky if it meant you had to kill something as harmles as a bunny to get it…

    I never knew about the Bat figurine thing, probably hard to find one around here, but perhaps in a Goth shop. which is cool with me!
    At first I thought this article was going to be about a favorite childrens cereal called Lucky Charms which has marshmellow colorful candy bits in it and is not entirely healthy.

    My grandmother was a very superstitious person. If we forgot something she would not let us back in the house to get it and would not loan some things to a neighbor but she would give it to them instead.So I understand about superstions.

    Well read on feng shui. But, I don’t quite believe on feng shui. Good work!

    Interesting. I place my beliefs in God. I have known people who were afraid of getting their hair cut because they thought someone would place a curse on them, and they would not allow anyone to photograph them, etc. It must be difficult to live with such fears.

    I used to have a rabbits foot until someone ripped it off. I’ve had nothing but bad luck ever since. It was green and I carried it on my key chain until I let one of my cousins borrow my car years ago. I haven’t seen it since. I know he’s got it, because he’s got to be one of the luckiest guys I know Now! Great article Nobert! Where did your mother pick up some of these lucky charms? I really liked the money frog, the Bagua Mirror, and the Bat. Keep up the great work Nobert!

    Good article. I have white curtains in my office. I always heard it was good luck to paint your front door red. As soon as we owned our own home I painted the door red. Tell your mother thanks for her advice.

    How interesting! I would love to take a tour of your mother’s house and garden to have her explain her good luck carms to me. My granddaughter gave me a feng shui fountain containing three elements; water, fire, and earth. It is in the North side of the house. Not because I knew it should be there, rather, it was a lucky accident.

    Thanks for the information, nobert.

    My father and sister would love this article. Personally, I am not superstitious. But I have already heard and learned all about this from my dad and sister. I don’t put them into practice though. Your article will surely interest the believers. Well written.
