Draw more abundance into your life with these nine simple feng shui cures.
These straightforward practices will make sure your environment is calling in money and supporting a prosperous financial flow.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #1: Make your front door sparkle.
In feng shui, the front door is known as the “mouth of chi.” In other words, it’s the place where blessings and abundance enter your home and your life. Abundant wealth, as well as the consistency of your financial flow, correspond with the appearance and condition of your front door. That’s why a clean, bright red door is an iconic feng shui image: red relates not only to prosperity and money, but also to vitality, success, and general positivity. But green, blue, black, or a beautiful wood finish will also call in money. Also make sure it’s clean, it’s in good repair, it doesn’t squeak or stick, it has full range of motion (nothing is behind it), and the area around it – the entire entryway – is as beautiful as possible.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #2: Hang some wind chimes.
Wind chimes help purify the energy near the front door while calling in positivity and blessings. So as long as you won’t be irritating the neighbors (never a good feng shui strategy), find some wind chimes with a sound you adore and hang them near the front door to invite more money into your life.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #3: Close the toilet lid.
Once you get in the habit of keeping the lid closed on your toilet, you’ll never go back. Here’s why feng shui tells us it’s important for wealth and abundance: the toilet literally pulls water and waste down and out of the room. This downward spiraling motion contributes to pulling energy out of your home. And this corresponds with pulling money and resources out of your life. Simply keeping the toilet lid closed when it’s not in use counterbalances this dynamic. And anyway, it’s a much more pleasing and attractive (not to mention hygienic!) design choice. (I mean, the toilet comes with a lid, so you might as well close that thing!)
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #4: Make sure all doors open easily and completely.
While your front door symbolizes wealth, every other door in your house symbolizes the ease with which you flow through life and accomplish your intentions. So to minimize daily hassles, delays, and irritations, follow feng shui wisdom by removing anything that inhibits a door’s full range of motion. In some cases, it can also feel better to remove hooks or racks from doors, specifically if they cause the door to feel heavier or more unwieldy.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #5: Clear your clutter.
Sometimes the simplest tips are the best. Simply clearing your clutter increases your confidence, which in turn gives your success and prosperity a generous boost. Additionally, letting go of what you don’t actually want creates plenty of space for what you do want. In other words, you create an energy vacuum into which wealth and resources instantly and naturally begin to flow. (Overwhelmed? Here are some places to start.)
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #6: Fix all leaks.
If you have even one leak – anywhere in or around your house – drop everything and fix it now. In feng shui, water is wealth, and a leak is both literally and figuratively a leak of precious resources. That’s why fixing leaks will help you save and retain money, rather than watching it flow out just as soon as it flows in.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #7: Cover Your Drains
If you happen to have an uncovered drain in your shower, bathtub, or any of your sinks – especially one that resembles a black hole – you unfortunately have a powerful visual affirmation of wealth and money draining too quickly out of your bank account and life. Luckily, a quick and affordable feng shui solution is at hand: take a trip to the hardware store and get yourself even the simplest of drain covers.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #8: Have a fountain.
By now, you’re probably getting a pretty good idea that in feng shui, water equals wealth. As such, a fountain – particularly a round one that flows equally in all directions – is a powerful wealth charm and affirmation of constantly flowing finances. A fountain is particularly wonderful near the front door, indoors or out.
Feng Shui Wealth Tip #9: Have the healthiest possible houseplants.
Finally, feng shui teaches that the health and vitality of your houseplants mirrors the health and vitality of everything in your life, including your money. If one of your houseplants is struggling, do your best to revive it, and if you can’t seem to do so after a reasonable length of time, give it to one of your houseplant whisperer friends, or release it with love to a compost bin. And if you seem to have trouble with houseplants generally, you might try lucky bamboo. All you have to do to keep it happy is keep it in bright, indirect light and change the water every week or two.
