‘Never keep these 4 things in your home no matter how poor you are.’

Ancient people advised against keeping these 4 things in the house as they could affect feng shui and health.


Don’t keep withered flowers and plants

The first item that should not be kept indoors is withered flowers, withered leaves, and withered plants. Many people tend to neglect them after purchasing flowers and plants and often forget about them in a corner of their homes. Over time, the plants wither and withered leaves.

According to ancient beliefs, this affects the Feng Shui of the house, affecting wealth. Withered plants and leaves in the house will gradually lead to the decline of even the rising generations. Cleaning up the flowers and leaves before they wither can ensure the longevity of wealth.

Is this saying true? There are some factors that are relative, but not entirely unfounded.

From a psychological perspective, withered flowers and leaves in the house lead to a negative attitude towards death and decline. This is not beneficial for the mindset, making people prone to pessimism, indifference, neglecting work and life, and lacking effort when facing difficulties.

On the other hand, vibrant flowers and thriving plants in the house can bring a sense of joy, enthusiasm, and love for life. With a positive mindset, people will have the energy to work, achieve success, and fill their pockets with money.

Therefore, it is advisable not to keep withered flowers and plants in the house.

What will happen if you don’t have time to take care of plants carefully, helping them to always stay fresh? Instead of buying plants, you can hang some decorative paintings with floral themes such as lotus flowers symbolizing wealth, orchids symbolizing high aspirations, cherry blossoms symbolizing luck…

This way, you can still decorate your home while improving Feng Shui, gathering wealth, positive energy, and enhancing prosperity and luck in your career.

Old calendars

An old calendar or a calendar with incorrect dates can also bring bad luck to the homeowner.

According to Feng Shui beliefs, a calendar is a symbol of flowing time, constantly changing. If you keep an old calendar – a symbol of stagnation and regression – the good things in life cannot come to you.

Do not keep chipped crockery in the house

Why can’t you keep chipped crockery in the house? There are actually many reasons. In the eyes of some elderly people, crockery used for eating, work, or someone’s career is also called “rice bowl”.

If the “rice bowl” is cracked, it is certain that the family will waste money and wealth. Moreover, in the past, beggars often used chipped crockery to go begging, so normal people feel that if they continue to use cracked crockery in their homes, they will easily experience unfortunate financial losses.

This type of thinking cannot be entirely superstitious. It truly reflects the simple mindset of ordinary people who want a good, stable, and prosperous life.

From a practical point of view, cracked crockery can cause hand injuries and bleeding when cooking or washing dishes. Using cracked crockery when eating or entertaining guests can cause discomfort and loss of appetite. Therefore, throwing away chipped crockery is the right thing to do.

According to Feng Shui, chipped crockery can easily lead the homeowner’s path to prosperity to encounter many obstacles. Wanting to invest or do business is not as smooth as others, and even falls into a state of loss and expenses.

You will feel that you are constantly in a state of financial shortage, and that problems occur one after another, making it impossible for you to save money even if you want to.

Do not keep damaged shoes in the house

People in the past highly valued shoes. There is also a famous saying: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.”

People in the past believed that shoes could protect our feet and feet are the foundation of our development and prosperity.

According to Feng Shui, worn-out shoes are symbolic of poverty and hardship. Therefore, you should discard worn-out or excessively old shoes. They are considered unlucky objects that can easily drain the homeowner’s wealth.

If a pair of shoes is torn and kept in the house or worn frequently, it can easily destroy this luck. Another hypothesis is that people who wear torn shoes often have a stingy personality, are meticulous, and penny-pinching.

Although this saying may be somewhat prejudiced, it is not entirely unreasonable. Just imagine who would want to negotiate million- or billion-dollar contracts while wearing worn-out shoes?

In terms of health, old shoes and slippers are a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. If they are left inside the house, they can affect the health of family members.

Therefore, if you want your career path to be smooth and prosperous, and have a life of abundance and tranquility, you should not keep worn-out shoes in the house.

According to Feng Shui, to gather wealth and luck, and to live a fulfilled and peaceful life, you can hang some landscape paintings such as “abundant harvest” or decorative paintings with symbolic fruits like pomegranates, grapes, or persimmons.

These paintings and fruits symbolize abundance and will bring luck and wealth to your family.
