Prosperity Begins at Home

Whether you are hoping to find a better job, looking for advancement and a raise, simply needing more money just to make ends meet or trying to live off a fixed income, prosperity and income growth begin at home. It doesn’t matter whether you have an office, workstation, cubicle or a corner of the spare bedroom, prosperity and wealth or increasing your income starts exactly where you start your day, your 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. Instead, create positive thoughts and energy to attract more income or a better job. Look around you, what you have mentally and physically energized in the past is what you have today. What you focus on today is what you will have in the future.

Create a Prosperity List

Your words and thoughts are what create or manifest your intentions. Every positive thought, wish or whim has the potential to move your forward toward prosperity; or if the thoughts are negative, keep you exactly where you are today or perhaps worse off. First, you need to put an end to the negative thinking by telling yourself “No.” Anytime a negative thought pops into your head, just say “no more negative thinking,” and send the thought away or “delete it” or “clear it” from your thought process. Do whatever it takes to get rid of negative thinking to make room for prosperity thinking.

Then make a list of all the positive thoughts you can use to create moreprosperity. 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 me grown my funds.” If you are hoping to find a new job your thought might be “I love the challenges and responsibility of my new job.” Or, “my new job is providing me much needed extra income plus I’m learning new things”. What you should not hold onto is the specific job. Perhaps the job you thought you really wanted for years is not the right job for your specific talents and will not serve you well. Therefore, the new job you just got will meet your needs better plus you will learn the lessons you need to know for your life journey.

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 your shift your thinking process.

Energize the Prosperity Areas of Your Home

Once you have shifted to positive prosperity thinking, it’s time to shift the physical energy in your house to bring it into alignment with your intentions. Be sure to unclutter first the following four areas of your home.

  1. Career Area: energize the north area of your living/family room with the water element. You can use a water fountain, a picture of a gently flowing stream or a fish tank filled with 7 gold and one black fish. If the black fish dies or any of the fish do not look healthy, replace them immediately.

  2. Income/Wealth Area: energize the southeast area of your living/family room with something wooden, green or a healthy upward reaching plant or small tree. 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 7 coins (the new US gold $1.00 coins work great) to further energize your prosperity

  3. Relationships Area: 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 shapes and sizes 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 additional or new income and keep it.

  4. Helpful People Area: energize the northwest area of your living/family room with the metal element using silver. You can use a picture of someone like Lance Armstrong and his Tour de France team framed in silver. Or, a silver trophy you’ve received for excellence or a picture of a parent that was particularly helpful. It’s teamwork and people that will help you create and find the prosperity you seek.

You can also energize your office, workstation, cubicle or desk using the same energy guidelines.

Financial prosperity is all about your intentions and creating the positive energy necessary to manifest the prosperity you desire. Remember, get rid of the negative thinking and replace it with the items on your prosperity thoughts list. Then unclutter the Feng Shui areas most relevant to prosperity and energize them to support your intention of improved prosperity.
