What Money ISN’T – ‘Your Only Solution’
After that heading you might be thinking, ‘well what’s the point of wanting to attract money if it’s not a solution’.
Well hang on there, it’s merely NOT the ONLY solution.
We’ll start with ‘how to attract money into your home‘ with this tip from Albert Einstein,
“Not everything that can be counted counts, and not everything that counts can be counted”.
If you’re so inclined to read additional money quotes from the greatest minds of our time, and long before our time, you’re sure to get something to take with you through your daily routine.
Using the Principles of Feng Shui, Here are Five Ways to Attract Money Into Your Home
1. Get Rid of the Clutter
Did I just hear you say, ‘oh no’. Well not to worry, a simple cleaning will get you everywhere. Decluttering doesn’t only clear out the physical disarray, it also clears the mind. Why you’re decluttering is as important as actually doing it. If you’ve decided to clean out an area thinking it’s going to make you rich, then you may break down in tears when it’s done and the money doesn’t immediately flow in!
However, the most important part of decluttering is ‘your intention‘. If your intention is to clear the space and to clear the mind, then that thought will help you govern your actions after the task is done. You’ll have a greater chance of getting on track and heading in the direction of being that productive soul you know is inside of you.
2. Add Plants to Add Life

After you’ve decluttered, think about introducing plants and flowers into your freshly cleaned space. Plants are life that bring good energy into a room. They can affect your mood for the better, so don’t hesitate to add them. To be sure you’re choosing the right plants, be sure to visit the link three paragraphs down on NASA’s Clean Air Study.
Did you know that plants have the ability to reduce stress? Yep, that’s right, they do. Think about the office or hospital room that’s filled with lovely, cheerful healthy plants.
The feeling one gets when walking into that hospital room or office is just a little more cheery, a little more hopeful, a little more at peace. The plants won’t change the situation, but they positively influence the mind’s eye … and that’s ALWAYS a good thing.
NASA’s Clean Air Study lists some of the best plants that increase oxygen, absorb carbon dioxide, and decrease levels of benzene, formaldehyde and trichloroethylene. If you’re wondering which plants to put into your space, check out their list.
3. Fresh Circulating Air
This is a Feng Shui basic. However, it’s not always doable when there’s toxic outdoor air.
That’s where a good deal of plant life in your home can especially help; plants give off oxygen and clean the air, so although you’re not able to bring the outdoor air in, you’re able to encourage fresher air by having a part of nature indoors.
When you are able to open those windows and let the seasonal air flow through your home, be sure to do it! Open the back, front and side windows and give your home a fresh air exchange. If you’re able to let the outdoor air flow through your home for most of the day, go for it.
Again, it’s all about framing the mind, so the mind can be cleared to focus on productive, positive, progressive new ideas and approaches. Clear the air, clear the mind.
4. Keep the Kitchen Clean
Seriously, our kitchen can’t always be clean! But that’s not what ‘keep the kitchen clean’ means.
After the party, after the big dinner, or after the friends have gathered for lunch, get that kitchen back to it’s energy productive state.
If you’re wondering what ‘keep the kitchen clean’ means, here’s a summary list:
- Keep the kitchen table decluttered. Feature a lovely rounded bowl filled with fresh fruit. Fruits have different meanings: Apples (friendship), Pears (good energy), Peaches (good health), Oranges (Richness). You could also feature fresh yellow flowers as yellow promotes communication. If you have to, go ahead and use silk or paper flowers, but avoid dried flowers, as they evoke decay and stagnation.
- Keep your fridge and pantry area filled with fresh food that actually gets eaten. That’s a struggle for a lot of people. How many times have we bought fresh vegetables only to never use them and have them rot in the crisper. If you’re finding this happening too often, then be honest with yourself and only get veggies that you’ll use. Maybe cucumbers, tomatoes (it’s a fruit), or peppers to add to sauces. Then go ahead and fill your freezer with fresh flash frozen veggies. At least that way they won’t spoil, and you’re adding to the usefulness of your kitchen.
- Keep the stove clean. Don’t let the oven get overly dirty and make sure all the burners on your stove top are working. The stove is the heart of meal preparation, and preparation should be cathartic and calming. Or at least, the foundation to create a calming cooking environment should be there, and a clean, working stove does that.
- Get those cupboards organized. Think about the flow of how you serve and cook then organize your dishes, spices and pantry foods accordingly. If nothing else at all, remove the items, wipe down the inside of the cupboard and return the items to their spot.
5. Decorate in Red, Purple or Green
There’s one big ‘but’ though; don’t use these colors if you hate them!
If you can’t stand a particular color, it doesn’t matter what Feng Shui says about it, you’ll hate entering the room and thus the room will lose it’s intended purpose; to clear the mind and promote positive energy and good thought.
However, if you’re a fan of any one of these colors go ahead and decorate using them.
Color makes an impactful impression on mood. Red is an especially powerful color, think of the Red Carpet for major events or the red power tie.
You don’t have to go hog wild with color either. If you have a general fear of color or prefer a more neutral décor, then simply add these colors in the form of accessories; throw blankets, pillows, small rugs, lamps, clocks, photos or table ornaments. If you’re a little more color prone, then plan a room with one of the walls painted either red, green or purple. Choose the shade that matches your décor and taste.
