Succulents are thought to be super-prosperous in feng shui because they are… succulent! They have juicy leaves stocked with nutrients to help them survive in any circumstances. Succulents also tend to grow like crazy.
That’s what wealth is at its essence. You feel secure no matter what is going on, and things tend to grow as you keep creating.
I want everyone to have that feeling…to live with stability and possibility and growth.
Not everyone was born with it, but everyone can make it.
Today, we’re diving into wealth building feng shui in a fresh new way.
When you’re wealthy you’re stocked with the energy, the nourishment and the actual cash to weather circumstances. Wealth isn’t a Ferrari or a private jet, though it can be if that’s what wealth means to you.
At it’s core, wealth and financial wellbeing are stability.
First question: how stable do you feel?
If you don’t feel stable financially, or in general life is too crazy, the first thing to do is simplify.
Remember this pyramid?
It’s the Maslow Pyramid that sets up a beautiful blueprint for creating a life you love. Maslow studied thousands of wealthy and happy people who “had it all”and he found that they all went through the same steps to build their lives from the bottom to the top.
At the bottom you find health, a solid & safe home (biological and physiological needs) and… yes…on that foundation you build your financial wellbeing (safety needs).
If you skip ahead, up the pyramid, things become shaky and unstable at the bottom and you’re apt to get stuck.
If things are blocked, disorganized or a total mess at home… or your money feels too unstable at best… you’re held back from reaching the heights you want to reach.
That’s Maslow. It’s been time-tested. That’s also common sense lots of us ignore.
Money loves organization. We all thrive in clear space. We all do much more with a solid plan of action.
Yes, you probably know that.
But money has all kinds of emotional entanglements I hear every day like : there’s not enough, too much fear, lack of control, overwhelm, drama, confusion, never-ending debt…I can’t catch up…
All that stuff is real. But… you don’t need a perfect world to build wealth.
YOU DON’T NEED A “PERFECT STORY”
I promise, you can have all the “bad money stories” in the world and you can still have financial stability.
Something not many people know about me…
My family was quite wealthy then intensely poor, all of their own making. I grew up as a young child on state welfare, hearing about bankruptcy and living through my mother’s tears about money, over and over again, almost daily, until I left for college. My Dad spent 5 years of my childhood in prison due to his own greed and corruption. Alleged criminals floated in and out of my house as a kid. I went to the most exclusive private school in New Jersey because of my academic inclinations, bussed in nearly 2 hours a day every day, barely able to see my friends there since I couldn’t afford to keep up. All I heard about was how my family lacked luck and how there was nothing to do to fix it.
If anyone should be poor because of the “mental programming” they have, it is me!!!
And, I’m not!!!
I did have a big hole to dig out of- about $148,000 of debt of all kinds- to get there. It was a hole I created and one that I fixed.
You don’t have to re-wire your brain from parental money issues to organize your checkbook. You don’t need total self-confidence to create a life you love.
You can organize, you can take charge of and you can transform anything you need to…all in very practical ways.
YOU ARE YOUR GOOD LUCK CHARM!
I was talking to a Japanese journalist recently who wanted me to share what everyone should be warned is bad luck feng shui for money.
I couldn’t answer the question!
I don’t believe in luck.
You make your own luck.
I believe you can create more opportunity with organization and clear space around you. I believe you can create anything you need and want if you are willing to commit, and stay simple with things… without living like a robot or working like a maniac.
I believe it only because I see it happen every day and I do it every day. For thousands of years the theories of feng shui have held up in practice.
Change your space & build your wealth.
