Art of vaastu & feng shui
This activity not only ensures systematic clearing of clutter, but also by employing feng shui analysis, one can also ascertain the directions within the home which could have bad energy sources for the year, and take the necessary precautions to counter them.
The process of annual cleansing also ensures that afflictions created unknowingly over the year can be countered, and can mitigate the Chinese zodiac afflictions which affect individuals based on their personal dates of birth (for those following the bazi system, also known as the four pillars of destiny).
This, in turn, will bring in positive energys, empowering specific aspirations of the occupants for the year.
For example, if you wish to improve your career luck, then placing a painting of fishes or even a piece of furniture which is blue in colour in the North sector of your living room would help.
Of course, this is a general advice which can be altered depending on your specific needs or bazi reading.
Here are some other tips to recharge your space:
Clear clutter around the main door Keep the foyer and the area just inside your main door well lit, clean and fresh, without furniture or obstacles in line with the main door.
Cleansing power of water Place fresh flowers in a large urn of water close to the main door to draw in positive qi.
Brightening up with yellow flowers Floral decorations with yellow flowers in the living room bring in fresh feel and also brighten up the place.
Go green to enhance wealth luck Place green and healthy plants in the East and the Southeast sectors of your living room to enhance wealth luck.
Bedroom cleansing Replace wall drapes and curtains in the bedrooms, realign the furniture, and ensure that the surfaces under the beds and furniture are cleaned.
