Not everyone believes in luck – either good or bad – or even superstition. However, if you want to keep the bad energy away from your home “just in case” following on from Friday the 13th, then we’ve compiled some items that may just bring you a little bit of comfort. Even if you don’t believe in such spirituality, you’ll find it’s a good excuse to go shopping anyway. Consider adding any of these six items to your home décor.
Dreamcatchers are a standard part of Native American culture, and there are many different kinds on the market. By including a dreamcatcher in your bedroom, it is thought that you can ward away bad dreams for a restful night’s sleep. What’s more, dreamcatchers can tie in beautifully with your décor, especially rugs with similar colors and patterns.
Aside from livening up your home, fresh flowers are also believed to bring good luck and fortune. Derived from the Chinese art of placement called Feng Shui, there’s every possibility good luck will come your way. Just don’t go pruning any roses to adorn your table as including thorns in your arrangement can “stop” that flow of good luck.
If you’re looking to encourage a little more financial good luck to come your way, there’s no harm in investing in a money plant and planting it in a green vase. Considered good “chi” or good luck and prosperity, a money plant’s origins come from China and an ancient story of wealth. It was thought that a poor man prayed for money, found a plant he thought looked strange, then took it home as an omen. He then found great prosperity by selling the money plants that grew from its seeds.
It is thought that by incorporating wall art into your décor – and in particular, a scenery piece, you can keep your house open to good luck and financial prosperity. What’s more, even if you don’t believe in superstition, a scenery piece of art can brighten up any space and tie in beautifully with any other décor you may have. It’s a win-win situation.
Even if you don’t believe in good luck or superstition, you’ll find that home décor items that supposedly protect you can also tie in beautifully with your current décor anyway. Therefore, what’s the harm in making a conscious effort to include them? Wall clocks are one such piece. If you keep them in the right direction in your home, you’re able to benefit from positive energy. However, superstition dictates that you shouldn’t hang your clock in the north, east, or west direction. Therefore, it’s safe to say that you can’t go wrong with hanging your new clock to the south.
Laughing Buddha, also known as Pu-Tai or Hotei, is based on a Chinese Monk who lived over 10 centuries ago. It was thought that by rubbing the belly of a Laughing Buddha, you would benefit from both happiness and prosperity. However, all that luck was thought to disappear immediately if the Buddha ever faced the door. The market is now full of Buddhas of various shapes and sizes, all looking to tie in as a beautiful piece of décor or a lucky charm.
Whether you believe in superstition, bad luck, or good luck, there’s no harm in incorporating everyday items into your home that may just bring about some of that financial prosperity and luck everyone desires. Fresh flowers will look beautiful on your dining table, a money plant will add a striking touch of green to any indoor space, and even a wall clock is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. If you’re in need of a few updated pieces of décor, the chance of good luck provides every reason to head out shopping today.
