Whether you’ve just moved into a new place and you’d like to decorate it into a creative and meaningful way or you feel like you’re in a dark place of your life right now and you’re looking for some help from the universe, there are certain decorative elements that are believed to bring good luck and fortune into your house. Specific elements such as crystals, door knockers, certain plants and colors can help create a peaceful and stress-free atmosphere in the house which will undeniably play a role in the well-being of those who live there. Here is a list of a few decorations that will make your house feel more fortunate.
Bringing certain plants into your household is believed to also bring prosperity, good luck, and even wealth to the inhabitants of the house. While some trees, like bamboo or ficus, have long been believed to have the power to ward off bad luck by offering protection from any misfortune that may enter your home, some flowers, like marigolds, daisies, lavender, jasmine, and roses, are thought to draw positive energies into your living area and keep the negative influences at bay. Incorporate a few of these plants into your home to also get cleaner air and a peaceful atmosphere.
The door is one of the most important elements of the house, as it symbolizes the transition from one passage to another, but also an entryway for the evil to break into your home. This is also the reason why you should not have a “WELCOME” door mat, as you never know whom you might actually invite in your house and what energy and troubles they might bring. A Celtic door knocker is a practical lucky charm that will keep any negative energy outside and protect the house and its inhabitants. Celtic door knockers are especially popular, since they feature ancient blessings and lucky symbols such as the shamrock or the Claddagh which bring peace and quiet to you and your family.
Fountains have long been used as symbols of wealth and good luck, especially by those who follow the Vastu Shastra principles. The water that flows in the fountain symbolizes the flow of money and happiness, so that installing such a decorative element can not only serve as beautiful pieces of art but also be powerful tools for attracting the right kind of fortune! By purchasing a piece decorated with images of fish or dolphins, you’re also attracting abundance and fertility to your house. Moreover, pay attention to the material that the fountain is made of and aim for the ones made of stone and marble, since they are thought to be the best at retaining good energy in the house.
The horseshoe has been regarded as a lucky charm since ancient times, as it looks like a crescent moon which is also usually associated with good fortune. Another version of why the horseshoe is a lucky charm is related to the Devil himself and it states that in 969 AD St. Dunstan tricked the devil and shoed him by his own cloven hoof which made the devil agree to never enter over a house with a horseshoe nailed above it. The best place to put your horseshoe is right above the house’s entryway so that it won’t let in any evil spirits and will attract prosperity into the house. If you want to add a personal touch to it, you can decorate the horseshoe, for example paint it in your favorite colors or tie ribbons which will make it more personalized.
