How many times have you heard or thought, “Some people have all the luck”? Do you believe that? Is it true?
The answer is no. It’s all about attitude and attracting what you want — including luck. Attracting or creating what you want is the foundation of a Feng Shui lifestyle and the premise behind the “law of attraction.” When you apply Feng Shui principles to your surroundings and thinking, you open the floodgates to attracting the prosperity and good luck you desire.
Oprah Winfrey once said, “I know for sure that what we dwell on is who we become.” In other words, your thoughts become your feelings and then actions. If you dwell on being grateful for what you have and look forward to a better tomorrow that is exactly what your subconscious mind will get busy creating. If you dwell on the negatives of what you don’t have, can’t do or won’t get, that’s exactly what your subconscious mind will create.
Henry Ford got it right when he said, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” Your thoughts and actions create your future. When you clear or unclutter your surroundings and your thinking you create a flow of new energy that helps you create new ideas, prosperity and your own good luck.
Turn your luck around today by using Feng Shui principles to create prosperity; it’s as simple as preparing your home and your thinking now to create your own good luck.
Begin at Home
Prosperity and good luck begin at home. It doesn’t matter whether your financial well-being comes from an office, workstation, cubicle or the corner of the spare bedroom; prosperity and good luck start exactly where you start your day – at home.
Feng Shui is the use of positive energy to create desired results. When applied you receive the good things you focus on internally (your thoughts) and externally (your surroundings). If you focus on negative thoughts like “There’s never enough money” then you are energizing not having enough money — instead of having more than enough money. What you receive more of is “not enough money.”
If you are not lucky at work or in relationships, look around your home to see where the negative energy is blocking what you want. For example if income is not flowing in, evaluate the east area of your bedroom, living room and office for clutter and unwanted or un-needed “stuff.” For better relationships check the southwest area of your living room and bedroom. Unclutter those specific areas so you can create a positive energy flow to attract more income or better relationships and good luck.
Create Prosperity Thoughts
Do you have a constant loop of negative thoughts running through your mind? Listen carefully to those words — your words and thoughts are what create your future. Every positive thought, wish or whim has the potential to move you toward prosperity; if the thoughts are negative, they will keep you exactly where you are or make it worse.
What you have thought and energized in your surroundings 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.
Put an end to the negative thinking – Anytime a negative thought pops into your head, just say “no negative thoughts allowed,” and send the thought away or “delete it.” Mentally shred it. Do whatever it takes to get rid of negative thinking and keep it gone for good. This makes room for positive thoughts that attract prosperity and good luck.
Make a list of positive thoughts. Use them to create a new loop of prosperous good luck thoughts so you can create your own prosperity. If you want to increase your sales, your thought might be “I am grateful for the steady growth in my sales If you are hoping for good luck, don’t think “I never win anything.” Instead focus on being grateful for all the things that do go well on a daily basis.
Create variations of your loop thinking 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 shift your thinking process.
Energize Prosperity and Good Luck
After you unclutter your surroundings and shift your negative thoughts to positive prosperity thinking, it is time energize your surroundings to bring them into alignment with your intentions.
Income/Wealth: energize the southeast area of your living/family room and office with something wooden, green or a healthy, such as an upward-reaching plant or small tree. If you have no green thumb, high quality silk plants and trees also work. 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.
Helpful People: energize the northwest area of your living/family room and office with the metal element using silver. You can use an inspirational poster of someone like Michael Phelps and his Gold Medal swim team framed in silver or you with your own winning sales team. A silver trophy you’ve received or a picture of a parent who was particularly helpful framed in silver also works well. It’s about teamwork and the people that have and 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 office with something from the fire element like a candle, the color red, a picture of mountains or triangles framed in red or even a red vase that narrows as it shoots energy upward,.
Don’t be a victim of circumstance! Get rid of your negative thinking, unclutter the areas most relevant to your prosperity and good luck and then energize them to support your intentions. You can create the prosperity you desire.
