Feng shui tips for the Chinese New Year (10 February 2013) – The Year of The Snake (Water Snake)
Happy and Prosperous Chinese New Year 2013 – The Year of (Water) the Snake and Kung Hei Fat Choi to all.
Please remember that the New Year celebration can last up to 15 days (depending on the tradition) but you have at least five days to do something positive to celebrate it and being grateful to the Chinese for giving us feng shui.
A few ideas (that I’m doing):
1) Wear something brand new to mark a new beginning
2) Get eight oranges (or do a Feng Shui Orange Peel Blessing Ceremony – please post your protocols for doing it)
3) Go for a Chinese meal
4) Do some space clearing – get rid of things to allow for new things to come into your life in 2013
5) Write down a list of your dreams and goals for 2013. Writing it down is the first step in physicalizing your dreams/goals. It will help you to clarify and crystalise them and then materialize them.
6) Download an image of a snake and use it on your smart phone as a wallpaper. Or get a toy snake (it’s a water snake this year so ideally should be black or blue). Check these snake trends for 2013
7) Research and meditate on the symbolic powers of snakes to resonate with their characteristics. Snakes (serpents) have a long environmental semiotics/symbolism in many cultures from kundalini / enlightenment to sex / reproductive powers to caduceus / medicinal powers and DNA to the biblical Adam and Eve story and so on. Snakes have been regarded as keepers of knowledge – discover what you can learn from them.
8) Do any ritual that will make you feel good. Remember, if a particular feng shui ritual doesn’t make you feel better – don’t do it. Feng shui is very practical and adaptable. In short, feng shui = intention + your energy + ritual.
9) Play Snake on your iPhone or smart phone
Keep empowering your life with feng shui in 2013 – The Year Of The Snake.
