June 9, 2011, 9:00 amThere’s a bogus email chain going around called "money bags." It says the occurrence of five Fridays and Saturdays and Sundays in one month is highly unusual, an event that happens once every 823 years.
It also says to send the chain to your friends and money will arrive within 4 days.
Feng Shui experts say the masters never used chain letters. And having five Fridays, five Saturdays and five Sundays occurs much more often than ever 823 years. It happened in 2005, 1994, 1988 and 1983 and will happen again in 2016, 2022. Etc.
There is a money bag, however. It’s a bag the Buddha carries to give gifts to other generous and worthy people.
Here a Feng Shui master offers advice for making a genuine Money Bag.
Make your own Money Bags by taking nine coins (nine is a very lucky number in Feng Shui) and wrapping them in a piece of cloth (red would be luckiest and if you don’t have cloth you could use wrapping paper) and tying the cloth together with a piece of ribbon (red would be good but you could also use green or yellow). And place your Money Bags where you receive money in the house.
So if you receive a paycheck then you would place your Money Bags in the Career Area (in your entryway by the front door). If you receive money through the internet then place your Money Bags by the computer. If you make most of your money by phone then place your Money Bags by the phone. Or if you make most of your money through investments then place your Money Bags with your investments files.
