No, I’m not talking about cereal today (though I do love a good bowl of that marshmallowy goodness), I’m talking about real good luck charms, and what you can do to improve your luck in a few areas of your life!
This week’s issue of Woman’s World magazine has a whole spread on this particular topic, but I’m going to choose the three lucky charms that I think are most accessible…
1) Create Harmony with a Rainbow!
“When the vibrant colors of a rainbow pass through the eye, they trigger the release of hormones thatcorrect imbalances in your body, which, in turn, can pump up your energy, calm you and ease any pain you might be feeling,” says certified color therapist Leah Bruns.
Well, rainbows aren’t just popping up in the sky everyday, so create your own! Hang a crystal in your window, and according to the Irish, you’ll be blessed with good luck every time light creates a prism in your home!
2) Attract Money with Greenery!
I think everybody would like a little more of this stuff! The Irish tuck shamrocks and clovers into their lapels or hats to receive blessings all year long. And in Feng Shui, it is believed that basil plants and bamboo shoots boost wealth for their owners. Plenty of studies prove that “seeing greenery boosts optimism, confidence and concentration – all three keys to success – by lowering the levels of the stress hormone cortisol.” (Which, by the way, is what causes us to hang on to excess belly fat, so having greenery in your house is a two-for-one!)
3) Get Happy with a Fountain!
Inviting positive energy into your home is as easy as putting a little (or big, if you want) fountain by the front door. According to Feng Shui, it draws “good spirits and gladness to you.”
“The sound of rushing water lulls you into a state of relaxation, while the water droplets produce negative ions in the air, molecules that are study-proven to trigger the release of feel-good serotonin in the brain!”
So, on your shopping list this week, make sure you have Crystal, Green Plant and Fountain! Then sit back and watch the good times flow 🙂
