Often portrayed as sitting on a bed of treasure made up of gold ingots, coins and jewels and bearing a coin in its mouth, the three-legged money frog is one of the most positive symbols in the Chinese culture. Also called as a wealth frog, money toad, lucky money frog, or three legged prosperity toad, the three-legged frog is a symbol of prosperity.
It is placed in the house with the purpose bringing money and good health. It also protects the family members from any impending hardship.
Where to place
Three-legged Money Frogs are
ideal symbol to be kept in homes, restaurants, offices and places of business
to enhance money luck. It has to be kept in corners in the room or in a corner
which is adjacent to the main entrance. This symbol can also be kept near cash
registers and receptions at the place of Business.
It should always be kept facing inwards to the house and in no case, it should it be kept opposite the main door and facing it, as this symbolizes money leaving the house. Ideally, it should look inwards like it has entered your home with money.
The three-legged money frog should never be kept in the bathroom, bedroom, dining room or kitchen. It can be kept near cash registers, in the case of businesses.
A maximum number of 9 three-legged money frogs can be placed at one time. If this number exceeds, it needs to be in the multiples of the number 9.
The best number of Money Frogs to have in your living room or garden is nine because it represents bringing in money from all directions of the compass. Place them randomly and discreetly under your table, behind the sofa, below the coffee table etc. Ensure that each Money Frog faces a different direction of the compass in the living room and one near your front door hopping inward to bring in lots of wealth and money. If nine is not possible, three or six are good numbers too.
How to place Three-legged Money Frog
Before placing this Feng Shui Symbol, cleanse the area with salt water. Keep your three-legged Toad in open sunlight and let it absorb the early sun rays. Now make positive intentions and ask of any wish that you want to fulfill. After this process, burn incense sticks or anything else in conformity to your culture and then place the Three-legged Money Toad in its place.
Every time you feel that Frog has lost some energy, the best way to reactivate them is to place it before sunrays for a few hours. Repeat again the placement ritual, described above.
Do try to keep your Three-legged Money Frog clean and shiny. Do not let any dust accumulate on it.
