That's not the feeling the holidays are supporsed to bring, though! It should be a rich time full of connections and the joy of giving and receiving. It's important when things are feeling tight to redirect your thoughts and energy and feng shui is a great tool to help you do that! Here are some feng shui ideas about wealth that can help shift your energy around money.
1. When you remember that wealth, prosperity, abundance, and money are all really just energy -- chi -- it starts to feel a little lighter and looser. Simply get the chi moving easily around you and the abundance will flow too! Tried and true ways to create flow include purging a few (or more) items from each room, sweeping and dusting, moving some furniture around, or moving yourself around -- dance, do jumping jacks, go for a walk. Do something to shake things up!
2. Sometimes, to get the ball rolling on attracting abundance, you need to look for other signs of wealth besides mere cash flow and show thanks for it. Call it an energetic attitude adjustment! A roof over your head, a few dollars in your wallet, a bicycle to get you around, the next meal in the pantry: these are all blessings. Be thankful for what you have right now and focus your attention there instead of focusing where things are scarce. Honor all that you have and treat it with appreciation no matter how small or simple it seems compared to your desires.
3. Surround yourself with symbols that represent abundance. Even if you're not feeling rich I bet you can still find things that symbolize wealth and abundance to you. Try this feng shui trick: create a wealth bowl that you'll see daily and will remind you of the abundance you have. Throw some loose cash or coins in it (play $, or a picture of $ works too), add some crystals if you have them, put some fresh fruit, flowers or other things that can be found abundanty in nature in, and perhaps place pictures of your loved ones there too. Add anything else that looks, feels or represents riches to you. Feel good? Now double it by placing a mirror so that the wealth bowl is reflected in the mirror. This effectively doubles your wealth. Now watch and see what happens!
I hope these feng shui thoughts on money and abundance help you feel more in the flow this holiday season! If you found it helpful, please share with others:-) And your comments are welcome below.
