to Create Good Fortune and Prosperity
By Pat Heydlauff
Are you living "in-between times?" Are you living in a gap
and not sure whether you should look back or move forward? For
example, are you in-between jobs, in-between relationships,
in-between major holidays when nothing gets done in the workplace or
in-between the ending of the old year and the beginning of the new
This is the perfect time for you to commit to using Feng Shui
to help you create good fortune and prosperity in your future.
Prepare your home for prosperity before the new season arrives.
While many families are experiencing stress over monetary issues and
worrying about the busy (and often expensive) holiday season ahead,
they could be streamlining and organizing their home to create a
more prosperous environment where good fortune abounds.
Good Luck and
Prosperity Begin at Home: But why start at home when money tends to be made in the workplace?
According to the principles of Feng Shui, prosperity, income growth
and good fortune actually begin at home. It doesn’t matter whether
your prosperity comes from investments or an office, workstation,
cubicle or a corner of the spare bedroom; prosperity and good luck
start exactly where you start your day – in your own home.
According to Feng Shui principles, you receive what you focus
your internal and external energy on. If you are focusing on
“there’s never enough money,” then you are focusing on not having
enough money – and that is exactly what you receive. If you are not
lucky at work or in your relationships, look around your home to see
where the energy is blocked and create positive thoughts and energy
to attract more income, a better job or much needed good luck.
Whatever you have energized mentally and physically in the past
three to five years is what you have today. What you focus on today
is what you will have in the future.
Your words and thoughts are what create your future. Every positive
thought, wish or whim has the potential to move you toward
prosperity; or if the thoughts are negative, they will keep you
exactly where you are. First, you need to put an end to the negative
thinking - tell yourself “no.” Anytime a negative thought pops into
your head, just say “no negative thoughts allowed,” and send the
thought away or “delete it” from your thought process. Do whatever
it takes to get rid of negative thinking to make room for prosperity
and good luck thinking.
Then make a list of all the positive thoughts you can use to
create more prosperity. If you are hoping for a raise your thought
might be “my new raise really helps.” If you live on a fixed income
your thought could be “my new financial advisor is helping evaluate
my funds so they can be well positioned for when the market turns
upward.” If you are hoping to find a new relationship your thought
might be “I love the new networking group I joined which provides me
relationship opportunities.” If you are hoping for good luck, don't
think "I never win anything," instead focus on noticing and being
grateful for all the little things that do go well for you. That
thought process feeds good luck energy.
Create a number of variations of your prosperity thoughts so
you can use them as positive reinforcement whenever self-sabotaging
negative thoughts try to sneak in. Write them on slips of paper and
put them everywhere if necessary to help you shift your thinking
and Good Fortune in Your Home: Once you have shifted to positive prosperity thinking, it is time to
shift the physical energy in your house to bring it into alignment
with your intentions. Be sure to unclutter first the following five
areas of your home – otherwise you will energize the clutter not the
desired prosperity and good fortune.
Career: energize the north area of your living/family room
with a water element. You can use a tabletop or wall-hung water
fountain, a picture of a gently flowing stream or a fish tank filled
with seven gold fish and one black fish. If the black fish dies or
any of the fish do not look healthy, replace them immediately.
the southeast area of your living/family room with something wooden,
green or a healthy upward reaching plant or small tree. If you do
not have a green thumb, use good quality silk plants and trees –
nothing dried as it is dried dead energy. Each symbolizes the wood
element, which represents new growth, the beginning of new things
and income, wealth and prosperity. This would also be a good area to
put a wooden money pot with seven coins to further energize your
prosperity -U.S. gold or silver dollar coins work great.
energize the southwest area of your living/family room with the
earth element using such things as terra cotta pots or a vase filled
with multiple colors and shapes of silk flowers, each representing a
potential relationship that will help you with your prosperity
intentions. You can also use a collection of your favorite things to
energize your many old and new relationships. Relationships are key
to helping you create abundance and keep it.
the northwest area of your living/family room with the metal element
using silver. You can use a poster of someone like Lance Armstrong
and his Tour de France team or Michael Phelps and his Gold Medal
swim team framed in silver. Or, a silver trophy you’ve received for
excellence or a picture of a parent who was particularly helpful
framed in silver. It’s teamwork and people that will help you create
and find the prosperity you seek.
Good Luck and Good Fortune: energize
good fortune and luck in the south area of your living room and your
workplace with something from the fire element like a candle, the
color red or even a great red vase that narrows as it shoots energy
Be sure to energize your office, workstation, cubicle or desk
using the same energy guidelines. Financial stability and prosperity
are all about your intentions and creating the positive energy
necessary to create the abundance you desire. Don't just be a victim
of your circumstances, get rid of the negative thinking, unclutter
the Feng Shui areas most relevant to prosperity and good fortune and
then energize them to support your intentions. Use your in-between
times to create the future you want.
