Feng Shui for Prosperity: The Lakshmi Report

Day five of my Prosperity Grounding & Mantra practice and I'm not rich yet. However, the wolves are staying on the other side of the door and maybe for now that is good enough.

Luxury is more than just money. Today I had the luxury of a snow day at home. The same woman who advised grounding and the Lakshmi Mantra for financial well-being also recommended I try Feng Shui for prosperity.

If you stand in your doorway looking into your home the far left corner is your prosperity corner. Things you want there to attract wealth: flowing water, the colors green, red & purple, gems, coins, goldfish, lucky money cats, horses, healthy plants, symbols of prosperity. What you do not want: dirt, grime, broken things, symbols of poverty, kitty litter or clutter.

Yes, she said clutter. My prosperity corner is in my guest-room/art-storage room. Talk about clutter. Today I cleaned this room and set it up as my yoga room, something I've been meaning to do for a long time. I still have a few piles to go through but I'm thinking I should be in pretty good graces with Lakshmi who, according to wikipedia, "Goddess Lakshmi is worshipped by those who wish to acquire or to preserve wealth. It is believed that Lakshmi (wealth) goes only to those houses which are clean and where the people are hardworking. She does not visit the places which are unclean/dirty or where the people are lazy".

In the very corner of my prosperity room I made a prosperity altar. Beach glass and glass floats to symbolise moving water, (flowing energy), Ganesh, the Hindu elephant god to remove obstacles, My footed replica of an ancient Egyptian offering bowl with agates, turquoise, crystals, jade and coins, and my "Keep the Money Coming" post card.

  1. By the way, the wealth area doesn't necessarily have to be the far left corner of your home - it is also the same corner in each room, when you look from the doorway.

    As regards the wealth symbols - add a personal touch, anything you personally see as resembling your ideal lifestyle. The general symbols are good, but personal ones have a really good impact as well :)
    For example, part of my ideal lifestyle would be the freedom to travel anywhere anytime, so I have photo from my last trip to Mauritius in the wealth corner of my office.
    So add a personal touch to it and it will seem less forced and formal.
    Good luck!

  2. I look forward to further updates on your Lakshmi success - I wish you luck, and it may just be something I should try myself!
