Many Chinese cities celebrate the New Year with these magical creatures – groups of people line up in columns wearing one large robe depicting the Dragon. Any other time of the year, you can find the images of this creature all over China – on ceramics, clothing, and in decor.
Dragons are among the most popular symbols in Feng Shui – these creatures command the elements and can change their size from large to the size of a worm. A dragon in feng shui represents success, prosperity, power, good changes, good luck in love, and spiritual growth.
Success and prosperity: having the image of a feng shui dragon in your home or office will help to bring success and help achieve new heights in life.
Good luck in love: they activate and help attract love.
Power and good changes: the dragon creates good Chi energy with its every breath, and improves the life of its owner.
Spiritual growth: dragons symbolize wisdom. According to a 2000 year old legend, the souls of people make a journey into the higher realms on the back of a dragon. In addition, it is a mediator that transmits human desires to the Universe to make them come to life.
How do you use a feng shui dragon? Since these creatures are associated with water, choose one that is colored green, blue-green or golden yellow. Dragons are associated with the east (the energy of the rising sun), so it is best to place its image or figurine in the East of your home or office. Its image can be placed anywhere, because this creature is connected with all major zones; yet, it is going to be more powerful in the east. Dragons strengthen the active and bright Yang energy, so their images are best placed in living rooms or dining rooms, not in bedrooms. The image of this magic creature can decorate the east wall in your living or dining room.
Pearls: Many images depict a dragon holding a pearl in its mouths, or trying to catch the pearl. According to feng shui, the Magic Pearl symbolizes harmony and the unity of opposites, such as Yin and Yang. It is believed that a feng shui dragon without a pearl will get angry and become unable to bring good luck. So, choose the images and figurines depicting them with a pearl in their mouth.
Dragon and Phoenix: in feng shui, Phoenix symbolizes eternal love. When Dragon and Phoenix are shown together, they symbolize the link between masculine and feminine. The combination thereof helps to bring infinite happiness, love and prosperity. An ideal place for such pictures and figurines is a bedroom.
Magic Dragon Tears: Dragon tears are tears of joy that it drops looking at us from the sky. On the way from heaven to earth, the tears turn into crystals. Dragon tears in feng shui are large crystals that dissipate energy and convey a sense of joy, love and power.
