Here’s what you must do for good luck this year

Preparing for Chinese New Year
Make 2014 Year of the Wood Horse Your Best YearChinese New Year is regarded as one of the most important festivals for the Chinese. Preparations for this festival may begin 30 days before the start of the lunar New Year. This allows you to get your home ready to welcome in bountiful fresh and new luck in the Year of the Wood Horse. You don’t have to be Chinese to participate and of course everyone should update with annual feng shui cures and enhancers.  You’ll find many of the recommendations below are just good feng shui practices to observe.

HOUSE CLEAN UP

You must clean up every nook and cranny to remove dust and stale energy from the current year. This means moving furniture and getting behind cupboards and even refrigerators to do a thorough job. Go through your old magazines, newspapers and toss out unnecessary accumulated material that you hoped to read and catch up on but never did. Most of what you saved to read is already old news anyway. Go room by room to ensure you don’t miss any area – you’ll be amazed at the amount of dust, spiders and cobwebs that you find!

This is the time to get rid of clutter, which causes yin energy to accumulate. When the chi cannot move the energies stagnate leading to illness and misfortune.

REPAIR & TOUCH UP

As you are cleaning up you will no doubt come across parts of your home that need repair or a paint touch up. In fact, it is recommended that you paint your home once every three to four years if you can.


Repair all leaky faucets.
  • Check For Water Leaks – Leaking faucets, bathtubs and bidets mean “loss of money” or “unnecessary expenditures” – something we all want to avoid. So make a quick tour and get these repaired. Don’t forget to check the sprinklers or watering system in your garden as this is just as important. Many people forget the outside of the home.
  • Lighting Fixtures – Check all the lighting in your home, make sure switches work and all lights are working properly. Again, check the lighting outside your home as well. Replace broken bulbs and get everything in working order.

Replace and repair broken door handles
  • Windows & Doors – Please don’t forget to check your front door and windows where the chi enters. Make sure any screens are repaired, broken locks or handles are replaced and everything is freshly cleaned and painted to welcome the chi of the New Year.
  • Furniture – Don’t forget to inspect and clean your furniture as well. Sofa sets, tables and chairs are very important. Sofas that are torn or damaged should be repaired or replaced. Inspect your dining table and chairs – in both formal and informal eating areas. The dining table represents the “rice bowl” of the family – dining chairs should be clean and sturdy so do repair and legs or chair arms that may have become weak or wobbly during the year.
  • Your Bedroom – Please don’t forget about your bed as its condition plays a big part of how the coming year will turn out for you. Sleeping on a damaged or broken bed will bring obstacles and obstructions in your life. If the bedframe is cracked or damaged it could mean a broken relationship for partners or husband and wife. Make sure that you remove the mattress and let it sit outside in the sun if you can for a day or so and wipe down any dirt or dust that has accumulated on the frame and headboard. Check your kua number and refer to the annual flying star chart to ensure that your head is not facing your total loss direction or the Tai Sui this year. It’s best if you can orient your head to face your sheng chi direction. You can find out your best and worst directions when you go towww.wofs.com and click on the Kua calculator in the upper right corner of the home page.

Throw out chipped or cracked dishes
  • Kitchen Cabinets & Closets – Give those kitchen cupboards a thorough cleaning. Inspect your plates and cutlery and any serving dishes that you use. Throw out any with chips or cracks and those that show any sign of damage. Remember that using damaged or chipped eating utensils is very bad feng shui. Doing so will hinder your career progress and even affect the wealth of your family. I know it’s hard to part with some things but just do it.

No room for new luck with a closet like this
  • Clutter Be Gone! Get rid of old newspapers, boxes, broken toys and furniture. We tend to let these things collect in closets, storage areas and in the garage planning to get rid of them at a later time. Now is the time. Once you’ve gotten rid of the obvious clutter then inspect the contents of your bedroom closets and clothes drawers. All those mismatched socks? Throw them out. Torn or threadbare undergarments, shirts, skirts and pants must go. Go by the old rule and give away any clothes (and shoes) you have not worn for a year. There are many people in need of help and donating like this is a genuine act of kindness. Remember that cleaning out clutter and your closet symbolizes removing all old bad luck…an once you have cleaned up there is plenty of room for new things and luck to come into your life.

These are just a few spring-cleaning reminders that you must take care of prior to the New Year. Do it a room at a time and you’ll find it’s not that difficult. Closets always seem to take longer than expected and that’s okay. Really go through everything and throw or give away what you can. There’s no better way to make room for good luck in the coming year.

Accessing Your Inner ChiThere is a subtle life force…an all-encompassing energy presence that resides deep inside us affecting every aspect and dimension of our life. It is by tuning inward that we can connect with it. Think of your spirit as an invisible life force composed entirely of energy – without form or substance and know that it is this powerful wisdom source of your spirit that nourishes your body and mind. When you connect with this inner source an awakening occurs that accelerates the flow of energy and fuses the chi of mind, body and spirit or what the Chinese refer to as tien, ti and ren – heaven, earth and mankind. The Flow Of Light, some refer to the manifestation of life force or chi as the flow of light…the vibration and movement within our bodies going on all the time. As life courses through the heart and blood vessels there is movement, and therefore there is also inner yang spirit energy. Traditional Chinese Medicine believes the vital points of the body stay connected via meridians and these meridians or energy lines flow through the human body, directing chi. Inner and Outer Vibrations when we begin to tune inwards we become aware of both inner and outer vibrations with people and the world around us and our mind and body develop new auditory sensitivities. Before long we begin to hear and feel our inner vibrations and we realize that we vibrate differently with different people. This inner wisdom tells us who and what excites us, what makes us happy.Accessing the Spiritual SelfBegin today to connect to your own spiritual essence and become sensitive to your internal vibrations. Over time you will instinctively respond in tune with them. Develop your awareness by making a conscious effort to focus your mind inwards.Accessing the spiritual self involves reaching inward for the energy source within…your inner chi. It is a very personal, wonderful and sacred adventure.Love

Don’t Forget The Power Of Sound Therapy

Especially in the East and Northwest This Year


Sound therapy can be created through the use of bells, wind chimes, singing bowls and other natural sounds as well. For example, flowing water in a fountain is a very “yang” creating sound that attracts vibrant chi into your home. Playing music during the day or leaving the television on while you are out is a great way to keep chi vibrant when you are not home. In this year of the horse it’s great to use wind chimes in the EAST where the illness star has flown and in the NW where the 5 has landed as these are earth numbers that need to be suppressed and metal wind chimes will do the trick.
