In Feng Shui, the number of Chinese Coins you have can make all the difference between having good wealth luck and bad wealth luck. It may sound like it would be tedious to have to count coins to get rich, but don’t worry it’s not as hard as it sounds! And if all it took to change your wealth luck was to add a few more Chinese Coins to your collection, I’m sure you too would not mind the few minutes it takes to attract the new good fortune.
Every number of coins symbolizes either bad or good wealth luck based on what that number sounds like in Chinese. If the word for that number sounds like a good luck word then it is a good thing and a good number of coins to have together. If it sounds like a bad luck word then it is a bad thing and a bad number of coins to have together.
Here is a list of the numbers, what the numbers are in Chinese and what it means to have that number of coins together.
1 – Yat – one coin represents wealth but doesn’t have any special numerical significance.
2 – Yee – two sounds like the Chinese word for easy so having 2 coins symbolizes money coming to you easily.
3 – San – three means rebirth or renewal in Chinese so 3 coins symbolizes your money always being replenished.
4 – Sei – four sounds like the Chinese word for death so having 4 coins symbolizes loss of money. Avoid placing 4 coins together.
5 – Ng – five sounds like the Chinese word for no so having 5 coins symbolizes you having no money. Avoid placing 5 coins together.
6 – Luk – six means to roll in Chinese so 6 coins symbolizes that money will easily roll in to you.
7 – Chat – seven means to be sure in Chinese so 7 coins symbolizes that you will surely be wealthy.
8 – Patt – eight means prosperity in Chinese so 8 coins symbolizes that you will be prosperous.
9 – Kao – nine is associated with longevity in Chinese so 9 coins symbolizes always being prosperous and wealthy.
Now go count your Chinese Coins and make sure you have the most auspicious combinations in all the appropriate areas of your home, business, wallet, pocketbook, desk, etc. Keep that wealth energy flowing!
