The frog brings you health and for­tune

The three-legged frog is a Chi­nese myth­i­cal sym­bol that is be­lieved to usher in money, good luck and pro­tec­tion. Plac­ing it right in your home can work won­ders

The Chi­nese use var­i­ous sym­bols and cures to gen­er­ate wealth and at­tract abun­dance in their homes and busi­nesses. One such pow­er­ful and widely used sym­bol is the Chan Chu or the three-legged for­tune frog. This iconic wealth frog not only brings money and lady luck to its owner but also pro­tects them from mis­for­tune. To the Chi­nese, this myth­i­cal frog sym­bol­ises the moon and is be­lieved to in­her­ently pos­sess its heal­ing prop­er­ties.

Seated on a bed of coins and gold in­gots, he has red eyes and flared nos­trils. The three legs sym­bol­ise the three phases of the moon as not only does he bring in money but jeal­ously guards the ac­quired bul­lion too. Make sure it car­ries a Chi­nese good luck coin in its mouth and a ba kua on its back for pro­tec­tion. It’s good if coins are piled under its webbed feet. A crown on its head also en­hances its im­pact.

There are a va­ri­ety of money bull­frogs avail­able to­day that come in all sizes and colours, mak­ing it dif­fi­cult to se­lect an au­then­tic one and place it cor­rectly. Jade frogs of­fer pro­tec­tion to your bud­ding business ven­ture, red resin ones at­tract money while the gold im­proves the circulation of chi or pos­i­tive en­ergy, ush­er­ing in good news and fi­nan­cial sup­port.

Here are some tips to get you started:

Size: They say the big­ger the frog, the bet­ter. How­ever, it should not over­power your space. Your per­sonal con­nec­tion to the money frog and its cor­rect place­ment mat­ter much more.

Num­bers: Go for one, three, six or nine. Nine is the num­ber for com­ple­tion.Hence, that’s the max­i­mum num­ber you can keep. Di­rec­tion: Al­ways make sure that the Chan Chu is in­ward fac­ing, as if he is bring­ing the money over to you, right into your cash box.

Place­ment: Tra­di­tion­ally, the frog is strate­gi­cally placed in­side the house di­ag­o­nally opposite the main front door to en­able you to wel­come those who come in. An­other area to place your wealth en­hanc­ing am­phib­ian is in the south east bagua area of your of­fice/home. This is the fi­nan­cial sec­tor of your space which is di­rectly linked to your cash flow and pros­per­ity.

Di­rec­tion: Get a bagua map drawn of the space that you oc­cupy to de­ter­mine the aus­pi­cious cor­ners. They are ideal places to place your frog friend, since max­i­mum pos­i­tive en­ergy or chi ac­cu­mu­lates there. How­ever, avoid plac­ing it in the bed­room, kitchen area or bath­rooms.

Lo­ca­tion: Don’t make its pres­ence ob­vi­ous to vis­i­tors, es­pe­cially clients dur­ing business deals. The frog must be covertly ke p t b e n e at h ta­bles etc. Re­spect it by ar­rang­ing for a raised sur­face near the floor.
