The ritual of the red envelope is deeply rooted in ancient Chinese culture and folklore.
For thousands of years, people in the Far East have given red envelopes containing money to honor wisdom and sacred knowledge on auspicious occasions. It is believed that by putting money in red envelopes, Feng Shui clients demonstrate their sincere respect for the knowledge that is shared, and it is also a reminder of the consultant’s responsibility to provide Feng Shui information with great thought and responsibility.
The color red symbolizes good luck, blessings and power, therefore it is believed that a red envelope will bring luck to the person who receives it and also to the person who gives it. That is why it is traditional for Feng Shui payment — which is traditionally rendered in an amount that reflects the value and benefit you believe it brings to your life and your business — to be received via nine red envelopes.
