I will be the first person to say that money cannot buy you love. I am against chasing wealth simply to have giant TVs and lots of cars. But many people in our world struggle to put food on the table and to keep clothes on their children. Having money to pay for necessities is absolutely something feng shui can help with.
The most important thing to do in order to bring wealth and prosperity into your world is to clear out the clutter that is currently slowing you down. Clutter creates roadblocks and distractions from your progress in life. You want to sell unused items, store out of season items, and do your best to ensure what you need is within easy reach. That way you can get your tasks done and have spare time to chase your dreams.
Water and fountains are powerful symbols to help bring wealth and success into your life. There are many styles of fountains out there now. You can also use photos and drawings of waterfalls and other pretty water related locations. If you have a fountain, remember to keep it clean, full, and bubbling away! If you let your fountain dry up and sit unused, what is that saying about the wealth in your life?
Think of the items you own. Is there something that really speaks to you of wealth and success? Maybe your grandfather gave you his golden pocket watch and it always fascinated you. Whatever it is, put it somewhere that you see and focus on frequently. That way it reminds you to go after that own success in your own world. Many businesses hang up their first dollar bill for this very reason - to keep them reminded of their goals and dreams.
In the same vein, is there a particular item in your world that makes you depressed every time you see it? Something that is grimy and dirty and makes you focus on how dismal life is? Certainly you cannot throw out every single item in your home. But if there is one or two items that drain your energy, think of solutions. Can you somehow revamp it? Move it? Sell it and do without it for a while?
Even small changes can end up bringing large results!
