Feng Shui- literally translated as “wind and water”- is a very powerful system that shifts the energy of a space to help people and organizations achieve their goals. These techniques have been practiced in China for thousands of years. They are utilized worldwide today by millions of people and businesses to achieve greater success and income, improve relationships, and experience greater health and happiness.
Here are a few basic (yet powerful) techniques to increase success and wealth:
It may seem obvious, but the state of your space is a huge determinant of what you attract in your life. If your home or office is cluttered and chaotic, your finances will be too. When you declutter and keep your space clean, with room for energy to flow, it creates clarity in your mind, work and finances and tells the universe you are open to abundance because you have room to receive it.
In Feng Shui the entrance is seen as the “mouth of Chi” – it’s where energy enters your space. It is thus very important to have a clear flow here which means no large objects people have to walk around, no spiky plants like cactuses, and as mentioned above no clutter (even if the rest of the space is chaotic, at least keep the entrance clean!).
Place artwork or decorative objects here that have a warm, bright energy-fresh flowers are ideal. The energy of your entrance sets the tone for the rest of your space. An entrance with an abundant, luxurious feel will attract more success and income.
Stand in the center of your bedroom, living room and/or office with a compass. Find which area of the room is the Southeast, the direction of wealth and luxury. Place a small plant or flowers here (or if it is a bedroom an image of flowers, a plant or a garden, since live plants should not be used in bedrooms). Also place a gold-color image or item since gold color in the Southeast brings in more abundance.
