Two other top feng shui tips for 2011: hang a metal windchime in the East part of your house/flat and keep clearing clutter all year.

Communities are going to be very important. Make an effort to connect to your local community. When walking in your neighbourhood greet people to make the connection – whether it is a ‘hello’ or a smile or just a head nod – start creating local bonds.
Be compassionate and appreciate what you have in your life right now. If you don’t, you will find it difficult to realise your purpose. Without appreciation, you will never become strong enough to respect yourself.

Find your element (Water, Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal) the Chinese year starts around 4 February so if you were born in January use the previous year.

Feng shui rituals for 2011

Pick one or two remedies that resonate with you and use them with a positive intention for the new year. You don’t have to feel pressurised to carry out all of them – one will do – the intention here is paramount and the most important factor to remember is that the ritual is just a servant of the intention. Feng shui = intention + energy + ritual. Almost anything can work as a good ritual as long your intention is clear.

1.    Hang a wind-chime (ideally six hollow shiny metal rods – but any metal windchime will do) OR place some metal objects if the wind-chime is not appropriate in the East part of the house/flat/room/property. This is to protect from the negative energies coming from that direction in 2011. Millions of people will do this all over the world this month (especially in the Far East).

2. Place a money plant/tree (jade plant – Crassula argentea) in the wealth corner.

3. Keep clearing clutter all year – put your house in order. Fix anything that is not working. A task left undone remains undone in two places, the actual location and inside your head. Incomplete tasks, in your head, consume the energy of your attention as they gnaw at your conscience. Are you delaying because you’re a perfectionist? Maybe try being a completionist (80/20 rule also helps).

4.    Wear something brand new (socks, shirt, underwear etc.) during the Chinese New Year celebration. This is to celebrate and mark the change in the energies for 2011. You can also wear an auspicious colour for this year – Honeysuckle – for any important meetings or events.

Networking and online presence and high visibility is the key to attracting new clients in 2011 – call me to find out how online marketing can help you and your website to rank high on Google and other search engines.

6.    For space clearing and improving the chi flow in your home/business – do the salt cure. Place half a plastic cup of salt in any area of the bagua (for a couple of days and then throw it away) which you want to cleanse and render unstuck. For example, if you place it in the “projects – children – creativity – future – 7 – lake” area of the bagua, this will improve your creativity, joy, projects, etc. Use Australian Bush Flower or Bach Flower space clearing mist or any other space clearing methods you know.

7.    Place a small jade stone in your kitchen near the stove – for health, clarity and good energy.

8.    Balance your electromagnetic radiation (EMF) energies (wireless, mobiles, etc.) with Helios3 – Geopathic Stress and EMF Harmoniser

9.    Balance your personal chi – optimise your sleep which is the key aspect of your health for 2011. Check Pimat – a simple radionic remedy that will protect and recharge your aura while you sleep. Order Pimat online now

10.    Chi flow. Feng shui is ultimately about energy and chi flow so do some activities to improve the energy flow in your body. Tai chi, meditation, yoga, EFT/emotional freedom technique eat good wholesome food, chewing well, etc. will do that. The function of feng shui is to be at the right place at the right time doing the right things for your ultimate success and happiness – to achieve that it is important that you are in the right state of mind first. Invest in yourself now – decide what you can do this week to align yourself with the new energies in 2010.

11. Transcendental cure to bring good luck – changing the chi of your home or office
On any day – open all of the doors and windows that connect to the outside of the house. Prepare nine oranges, and cut nine round pieces of orange peels from each orange. Orange represents “auspiciousness”. In total, you will have eighty-one pieces of round orange peels. Break the orange peels into small pieces and scatter them in all of the rooms in the house. When scattering the orange peels, visualize that tens of thousands of Buddha’s lights are filling every corner of your house along with the orange peels. This light will evict all the evil chi, misfortunate chi, bad chi, and sick chi, and replace them with Buddha’s chi, happy chi, prosperous chi, healthy chi, and auspicious chi. Make sure to do the Three Secret Reinforcements when performing this cure which includes the Body (Prayer gesture), Speech ( a Mantra reciting “Om Mani Padme Hum” 108 times) & Visualization for “Good Luck, Prosperity, and Good Health” for you, your family & friends.

Honeysuckle: A Color for 2011

Colour for All Seasons.
Courageous. Confident. Vital. A brave new colour, for a brave new world. Let the bold spirit of Honeysuckle infuse you, lift you and carry you through the year. It’s a colour for every day – with nothing “every day” about it. “In times of stress, we need something to lift our spirits. Honeysuckle is a captivating, stimulating colour that gets the adrenaline going – perfect to ward off the blues,” explains Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Color Institute®. “Honeysuckle derives its positive qualities from a powerful bond to its mother colour red, the most physical, viscerally alive hue in the spectrum.” Eiseman continues, “The intensity of this festive reddish pink allures and engages. In fact, this colour, not the sweet fragrance of the flower blossoms for which it was named, is what attracts hummingbirds to nectar. Honeysuckle may also bring a wave of nostalgia for its associated delicious scent reminiscent of the carefree days of spring and summer.”
