Make space for fresh energy in 2015
Start the New Year on a clean slate by clearing all your debts and finishing long pending projects
On the last days of a year it is wise to take out time and lay a strong foundation for the coming year. According to feng shui, there’s a time to rest and a time to play, a time to sow and a time to harvest. Seasons are cyclical and nature is in harmony with them. Animals hibernate, trees shed leaves to adapt to the highly Yin (feminine), cold and contracting winter energy. The week ahead is for completion, making this the time to pause, reflect and introspect. Here’s how you can ring out the old and embrace the new with feng shui:
the year debt- free! Pay back all old debts, finish pending projects and tie up all loose ends, legal issues etc. A new year begets a fresh slate, and you want to start on a fresh note, don’t you?
space implies potential for something new to enter your life, an indicator of your hopes and expectations…. so don’t give in to the urge to fill up every nook and corner of your home with ‘something’!
powerful way to cleanse the negativity and static energy is with aromatherapy. Light a scented candle, burn an incense stick or use lavender, lemongrass oil.
are places which block energy. They are like blood clots. Fill them up if they are visibly angular, pointy and stand out.
fresh energy to your home with potted indoor plants and flowers! Flowers high in Yang (dynamic masculine energ y) are gladiolus ( especially red ones), chrysanthemums and lillies.
your home with candles, paintings, wall hangings etc or experiment with some arty pieces. If that’s not your style, then put a fresh coat of paint on a wall. Yellow in the dining area, pinks in the bedroom, greens and blues in the washroom, pastels in the living area and hall will be good choices. Challenging areas: In 2015, strive to keep the southeast Bagua area of your space stable - ie control the noise levels and do not constantly renovate/ redecorate. Strategically hang a metal wind chime in the west bagua area of your space to counter the challenging sha chi.
