The Fun Shui of Money
By Keith Varnum
Would you like an easier and more abundant flow of cash in your life? You’ve come to the right place. This article is about the Fun Shui of Money. The Fun Easy Flow of Money.
“Shui” in Chinese means “water” or “flow. If you watch water in nature, you can feel the water having fun flowing around obstacles to get where it wants to go. Attracting an easy, extravagant flow of money into your life is a function of fun, fluidity, focus, flexibility and finesse.
Celebrate the truth that there is more than enough.
Acknowledge and rejoice that there is more than enough food, money and love in the world to meet everyone’s needs. Experts agree that we currently have the resources on the planet to take good care of everyone. It’s only the attitude, intention and action that are missing. Start with you and let it spread! Celebrate today! Have a Prosperity Party and invite your friends.
See your riches.
Visualizing the riches you desire in your life will accelerate the money into your world at lightning speed. See yourself already using the things you bought with your mountains of money. For even faster results, add satisfaction and gratitude at the same time you see your picture of wealth.
Everyday do something rich.
Each day do at least one activity that makes you feel rich. Have a massage, buy fresh flowers, go to a day spa, rent a Porsche, dine at a fine restaurant and don’t look at the prices, hire someone to clean your house, take your best friends out to lunch. Or do something that is free. Pick a bunch of flowers, take a picnic to the beach at sunset, hang out at a fancy resort, go for a drive in an expensive estate and imagine which house you now own. The more you practice feeling rich, the faster it becomes a part of you.
Like vibration seeds like vibration. A really good, deep laugh moves your energy into a place of attraction. Use this belly laugh to attract a belly-full of money. When you are playing with children, watching a funny movie, horsing around with your friends, chuckling at a joke, you’re funding your dreams. Feel what it would feel like to have more money than you could ever spend—and double over in joyful anticipation—or absurdity.
In one study, 75 percent of the people who watched a funny movie were able to solve a problem, as opposed to 13 percent of the people who hadn’t watched the funny movie.
When we’re feeling good, we naturally attract other answers, assistance, resources and people to us. As the famous comic piano player, Victor Borge, reveals, “Laughter is the shortest distance between two people.” Call it charisma, personal power or the Law of Attraction. It’s the physics of fun.
Create space for prosperity.
As science teaches us, the universe abhors a vacuum. Create space for your prosperity and that space will be filled. Clutter clogs up your cash flow. If you haven’t used it in the last 6-12 months, it’s clutter. Liberate the clutter in your life—the books you don’t read, the outdated paperwork in your drawers, the old clothes that don’t fit, the boxes of junk in the garage. When you clean out the old, you make room for the new. And don’t refill your space with possessions you don’t really want or won’t use. Ask yourself if you’ll truly use and enjoy each item before you buy it.
Fix objects that are broken.
Anything that doesn’t work is reflecting dead, stuck energy in your world. Check your home and workplace for any items that need repair—that loose doorknob, broken light switch, stuck file drawer, or clock that doesn’t keep correct time. To get the money juices cooking, fix or get rid of defunct items.
Money is a form of energy. Like other forms of energy (water, electricity), money needs to keep flowing through your life—not just into it. Hoarding and scrimping block the stream of more coming in. Living generously makes space for ever-increasing abundance. In addition to sharing money, give generously of your time, talents, wisdom, compassion, appreciation and enthusiasm. Share your good fortune—and good fortune flows back to you. Like vibration breeds like vibration.
Add personal symbols of prosperity.
Enhance your living and working space with representations of prosperity, such as a "lucky” bamboo plant, a potted evergreen tree, a bowl of coins you add to each day, a Chinese good fortune symbol, or anything that signifies success and abundance to you. A picture of your dream house, car or vacation spot is an effective money symbol because it has personal meaning for you.
Know what your money is doing.
The Chinese say, “Neglect your money and it will neglect you!” Do you keep paper money neatly sorted—or is it jammed in your wallet, purse or pocket any old way? If you spend recklessly, don’t pay bills on time, have no sense of what money comes in and what goes out, you may actually be repelling wealth. You will be amazed at how you magically tap into more prosperity when you begin to consciously manage your money! Clean the disorder out of your purse and wallet, and start dealing with your money as though you value it.
Gratitude is one of the most powerful, yet underestimated prosperity tricks you can use. The more you are thankful for, the more will be given to you for which to be thankful. Like energy creates like energy.
At the start or end of each day, write down at least 5 things you are grateful for—the sunshine on the water, the birds singing in the trees, the laughter of children, your health, or the fact that you even have another day to live. The more you notice, appreciate and express gratitude for, the more good things will come your way, including money. True prosperity is created not by how much money you have, but by how well you enjoy and celebrate what is already present in your life.
Release constrictive emotions.
Unresolved emotions constrict the free flow of energy (money) through your life. Heavy, tight, restrictive feelings impede the natural current of life force through your body and world. Stuck emotions equals stuck energy equals stagnant cash flow.
To release the blockage of these emotions, it’s helpful to realize that all emotions are valuable messengers (friends, allies) for they let us know how we really feel about aspects of our lives. Jealousy and envy inform us of what we want for ourselves in life. Move out of jealousy and allow the universe to bring you whatever it is you’re envious of. Anger and resentment tell us that something is out of harmony with us. Re-align the situation and the anger dissipates. Find a way to move your feelings—and your cash flow will be on the move again.
Forgive and forget.
Any past anger, hurt or wrong that we’re holding onto is holding back our abundance. Holding on to your anger or wound—however justifiable it may seem—keeps you stuck in a regrettable past, rather than moving forward into a better future. Again, of all the effective methods available, find a way that works for you to release your feelings. And for real freedom and prosperity, go deep enough to discover that level of understanding in which you realize that a wrong never occurred! That offense was really a soul agreement being kept.
Practice receiving gifts and pleasures, big and small. You know the joy you get by giving to people. By not receiving generously, you’re denying other people the pleasure of giving to you!
Find the real you!
Working in a career that doesn’t fit right is exhausting and stressful. You’re less efficient, less productive, less prosperous. Get in sync with the real you. Get help from a career coach. Find the real you, go with it and never look back!
Quit doing what you hate.
Tell yourself the truth about what you don’t like doing … then stop doing it.
Do what you love.
You’ve heard all the pep talks. Follow your bliss. Do what you love, money will follow. It works. Don’t just know it … do it. Find out!
Live with passion.
Dive into some activity. “What’s your juice?” Listen to the still, small voice of intuition: love, family, jazz, art, quilting, golf, writing, traveling, fishing, inventing? Whatever it is, it’s you. And it’s priceless and doing it will make you rich!
Celebrate the abundance of others.
You cannot receive vibrationally something that you are not a vibrational match to. And so, bless those who are finding abundance. And in your blessing of them and their abundance, you will become abundant, too.
Make a difference!
Most of us focus on our little world and our own individual future. Millionaires dream of making the world a better place, with visions of a better tomorrow for everyone. They love helping people. I’ll bet you have such a dream. Discover the real meaning of life by going beyond yourself and make a difference in the world. If you want to be prosperous, make others prosperous!
