A friend of mine had a Feng Shui expert look over her house this weekend. She invited me to come over and watch. Tons can be done to attract wealth into your life, she told me. While I found the in-depth Feng Shui so complex and complicated it’s bound to make you paranoid (or simply give up), the basic message — that when you clean up the clutter in your life, you leave room for new, good things to come to you, makes a lot of sense. So, without going into too much detail, below are a few simple things you can do to draw wealth, success, and prosperity into your life.
The main areas that affect your financial situation are the north (career) and the southeast (wealth and prosperity), along with your kitchen, which is a symbol of money and abundance in every home.
In the north and southeast corners, one of the simplest and most potent things you can do is to add water (if actual water is not an option for you, you can use a photo or a painting featuring water). This is commonly done either by installing a waterfall, or by setting up a fish tank (or bowl, which may be easier to take care of).
When it comes to your kitchen, the stove is a virtually an abundance magnet, so make sure you don’t leave pots and pans sitting around on it while you are not cooking, as they could block wealth from entering your life. It is also a good idea to keep a bowl of change in the southeast corner of the kitchen, or a well-stocked bowl of fresh fruit.
