Shifting Your Perspective on Wealth to Attract Abundance

Laura Cerrano

A common area that people immediately focus on when discussing Feng Shui is wealth. Out of curiosity I looked up ‘wealth’ via the Merriam-Webster dictionary online and came across these definitions: “wealth - an abundance of valuable possessions or money,’ ‘the state of being rich; material prosperity,’ and ‘plentiful supplies of a particular resource.’ Not in one definition did I see wealth described as living a healthy mind, body and spirit lifestyle.

As human beings in the 21st century it's time we begin to shift our perspective on the definition of wealth. The old way of thinking is creating a huge rift between multiple people currently and for upcoming generations.  Living a basic healthy lifestyle (being able to rent or own a home, purchase food and health care) at affordable fair rates is becoming less attainable due to various factors. This needs to become a collective local, national and global discussion. Instead of seeing wealth as a means to separate class, race, etc, let's shift to viewing wealth in how it can empower and connect us all. 

i.e. Consuming foods that are not contaminated with chemicals and additives is living a wealthy lifestyle. Connecting with friends and loved ones, along with participating in community events is living a wealthy social lifestyle. Practicing daily self-care (such as learning how to reduce your stress levels) is living a spiritual healthy and wealthy lifestyle. Knowing that nothing lasts forever is wealth in learning how to become present and appreciate your daily life interactions. Donating items you no longer need is wealth in sharing.  Wealth is so much more than just money exchanges and possessions. 

I invite you to begin shifting your perspective on the word ‘wealth' and open yourself up to abundance on various levels. There is more to this discussion of wealth, yet for now this can help begin the process of change by just offering a different perspective. 

Feng Shui Tip: Best Wealth Cures For Your Home

Laura Cerrano

Some of the best wealth cures in feng shui may already be located within your home. And for those who enjoy the more traditional cures, continue reading to see some of the most popular go-to suggestions. 

1. Money flows like water and needs open pathways. De clutter your home so this becomes easier for the energy flow. Let go of what ever you do not need, use or love. 

2. Organize your bills. Create a system that allows you to stay on-top of due dates, so debt and late fees are thing of the past. This will also boost your self-confidence and help you regain control of your finances. 

3. Allow natural light to filter into your home and make it routine to open your blinds and curtains daily. Light is a healing energy, while also "illuminating" your intentions for why you need wealth. This will also remind you to take action in cultivating more opportunities to increase prosperity in all areas of your life.  

4. Keep an eye out for "signs of abundance." Have you ever come across coins or dollar bills on the floor? When you do, do not disregard this simple gesture. This is an opportunity to remind yourself that you are already wealthy and that abundance is seeking you. If you do not pick up the coin or dollar bill, simply acknowledge it by saying, "thank you for this sign of abundance." 

5. Adding plants into your home will not only clear the air, it will also symbolically represent the growth and expansion of wealth. Based on the five elements theory of feng shui, its recommended to have at least 1-3 plants in each room (where natural light is filtering in). 

Plant types: Bamboo, Rubber Tree (money tree), peace lily and ferns. 

But I heard having plants in the bedroom is bad feng shui! Right?

Each school of feng shui will offer a different perspective. My suggestion, make sure there is a good amount of distance between your bed and the plants location. 

 

Below Are Traditional Feng Shui Cures:


Lucky Frog

Placement could be near the front entrance of your home. Make sure the mouth of the frog faces into your home. This directs money flow inward vs back outside the front door. 


Luck Cat

The lucky cat helps to call in what ever intentions you create.  Ideally, this wealth cures is for retail stores, restaurants and business. You could also place lucky cat in your home (especially if you own a in-home business). 

In Japanese, lucky cats are called Maneki Neko, which translates to the "Beckoning cat."


Wealth Ship

This is a great cure because it's easy to implement and flexible with your home's decor. Placement could be by the front entrance, inside your homeoffice or where ever the wealth section of your home is located. 

Make sure the front of the ship faces into your home. 


My final tip: Be sure to take ACTION! Many times people have the assumption, if they implement the cures, money will just appear. The energy deposit you invest in life, is what you get back.
