One of the most popular applications of feng shui is for attracting material wealth. Of course, there is much more to feng shui than its wealth building appeal, but I thought it would be fun to explore a little. You can also use feng shui to create a better quality of life, improve your health, attract more harmony to your relationships, help bring success to your career and so on.
It is the luxury of open space and plenty of breathing room that attracts more wealth energy. In terms of feng shui, this basically means there is open space to allow more, to enjoy more, to create more, explore more and be more. Learn to welcome powerful energy into your home and not make it stale or block it with all sorts of stuff. The more open the space, the more fresh energy can come in.
Clutter is stuck energy, and the essence of cluttered spaces – as well as the dominant energy of people who live in cluttered spaces – is based on fear mixed with pessimism.
This is hardly a quality of energy that can help you attract wealth. We all know that clearing clutter is not easy, and it might take time. Directly connected to the concept of a clutter clear space is clear organization. If you do not have an organized house, chances are you will start quickly accumulating clutter again. Each item in your home deserves a space of its own, no matter how small; this makes for a peaceful house with strong and clear energy.
The main wealth color is gold, (of course!) In any decor items – mirrors, frames, lamp bases, trays, coffee tables, etc – whatever your house decor feels harmonious and happy with! Just be sure you actually love those golden beauties, do not bring something just for the sake of its look if you are not connected to it emotionally.
So, anything you bring into your home to work as a feng shui wealth cure (or any other cure, for that matter), make sure the item has a strong energy connection to you, and not to what others may say. If you do not like something, guess what – it probably doesn’t like you back! Not a good feng shui energy dynamic.
The next feng shui wealth color is purple and as with gold, you can bring it with a variety of decor items. From painting to pillows, rugs or big book covers. Use both colors tastefully and wisely, create simple beauty and decorate with objects that you really like – this is how they will start working for you as intended.
There is a specific money area in feng shui that needs to be treated right, and for this you have to create a small sacred space that you devote to the energy of wealth.
It can be anywhere (except your bathroom, laundry or garage), and as big or as small as you like. Basically, you create an area that has the task of collecting wealth energy. You decorate it with meaningful to you items of wealth (jewelry, specific photos, objects of value, etc.
Nature is the ultimate manifestation of unlimited wealth and abundance, so replicating the lush energy of nature in your home will help you attract the same quality of energy. Be it a money plant or lucky bamboo, know that decorating your home with lush, happy plants is an excellent feng shui wealth magnet. East, Southeast and South areas are the most greenery loving areas in your home.
The association of the energy of water with wealth is obvious, very ancient and present in all cultures. Fountains are most popular for wealth cure, so if you love fountains, find one or two and place them in the best feng shui areas of your home (inside or outside but not in your bedroom, this is not good feng shui.)
Crystals are the powerhouses of good feng shui energy; they bring the essence of abundance from deep within the earth. Along with the clear quartz, there are 3 more crystals that can help you attract the energy of wealth: pyrite, citrine and amethyst, my fav.
Images can be very powerful, they can be of great help with expressing a desired quality of energy when the real objects are not available. You might not want plants in your space for whatever reason, but you can always go for images of lush energy – no constant care needed, always fresh! The same principle applies to images of water. If fountains are not to your liking, you can use images of clear (and ideally moving) water as a wealth feng shui cure.
Mirrors are the absolute must have feng shui wealth magnet for so many reasons! They bring more light and joy into any space. Mirrors also create beautiful pathways for new and joyful opportunities, just be sure to go for the best mirrors you can find; the ones that your heart adores, and your room looks good in.
Understand that the most successful feng shui applications are the ones that are highly personalized. Decorate your home only with the cures that you have a strong personal connection to. Learn to create beautiful, fresh and potent energy and all the good things – including financial abundance – will inevitably follow.
