Many of you know that I'm a feng shui believer. And for those of you who have NO CLUE about feng shui, I'll give you the one-second explanation: it's an Asian technique to "refocus" energy in your house and work space to make significant changes in your life.
I know...sounds a little "hokey pokey." At least that's what I thought before I became a huge believer by seeing the things feng shui have done for my life.
I've told the story in a couple of my seminar events in years past. About 15 years ago I had a lawsuit that tore my entire personal and professional life apart...down to losing absolutely everything I had.
Me and my 2nd husband (at the time) ended up moving into a rental house that was (and still is) owned by his mother. She allowed us to move in without paying her any rent until we got our sh** together.
While we were living in that house, I came across a book called Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life by Karen Rauch Carter.
And it literally did change my life.
Now I'll admit. All I focused on was my prosperity corner. I didn't care about anything else at that time. I followed the suggestions by first cleaning up the space. That corner happened to be the master bedroom closet which was a disorganized disaster. I thoroughly cleaned out and organized the space then added purple (construction paper) in that corner. (Purple is a very powerful prosperity color next to red and gold.)
I went to Michael's and bought a wooden treasure chest that I painted purple then glued a ton of jewels inside; the book suggests putting things in the prosperity corner that represent wealth and a treasure chest came to mind. (I still have that same treasure chest in my prosperity corner as we speak. It's now 15 years old...cute little thing.)
Next, I bought something called Abundance Oil by Young Living. (Available at Amazon.com.) I put this on a small Buddha that I put in my corner.
And that was it.
I didn't even put in a desk fountain (which I should have done to magnify the results much quicker) at this point.
During that time, my future was pretty bleak and hopeless.
Fast forward one year from that date...I had a successful multi-million-dollar company and was building a custom home with a pool from the ground up.
It happened so fast but yet "naturally gradual," if that makes sense. It wasn't like I bought a lotto ticket and was an overnight millionaire but the opportunities came and came and came some more! Before I knew it, I was back on top!
Now, here's what feng shui WON'T do for you. It won't make the money for you. It won't take any action for you. But it WILL allow opportunities to come through. It will give you ideas that you never had before. It'll send magic your way. It's up to you on how you follow through. It's up to you to put some type of action plan into place because it'll do nothing for you if you won't unglue your ass from the couch.
So...a couple of weeks ago I was starting to feel stuck with a couple of career/business decisions. Plus business seemed a little too slow for my liking. So, I amped up my prosperity corners.
At the office, I have a fountain that runs 24/7 in my prosperity corner. I put loads of the Abundance Oil in the fountain over the course of a couple days.
At home, I have my master bathroom in my prosperity corner (upstairs). And this sucks. The worst thing you could ever have in your property corner is a toilet. I don't exactly have a toilet but I have a bathtub. When I moved into my house, I painted the tub plug red and I keep it plugged all the time when the tub is not in use. This has helped keep the energy from being sucked down the tubes. Literally.
But I have 2 sinks that are next to the tub and I keep those open. This apparently was presenting a problem in my prosperity. Not only was business slow but my expenses were increasing for some reason.
So...I bought these rocks. That's right. Medium-sized pebble rocks of 2 colors: white/clear and purple. I put these rocks in each sink, sitting on the stopper in each one. And I added a feng shui mirror to sit on the side of the bathtub to push the energy to the ceiling instead of letting it fall to the bottom of the tub.
That's all I did.
Within 2 weeks my business has quadrupled with NO additional effort on my part.
So, when I tell you this stuff works...it means THIS STUFF WORKS even if it sounds "hokey pokey" or weird.
Trust me. When I first started with this, I felt weird. I felt stupid putting purple construction paper in my cleaned-out closet. I felt lame painting a treasure chest purple and gluing jewels all over it. But I gave it a chance. And it worked.
I recommend that you at least put a small fountain in your prosperity corner in your home and in your office. That corner is located to the far back left of where your front door is. So when standing at your front door, imagine where the far back left corner of your house is. That's your prosperity corner. And if you have 2 stories, you have 2 prosperity corners to contend with.
When I've recommended that students use this technique, they've been shocked at how magical that it works.
But there's another part to this. You can't just sit on your ass and do nothing. You have to implement some type of plan or strategy so that the magic can happen for you.
