Feng Shui Tip of The Month:
How to Prepare your home for the New Year-
As we ring in a new decade and celebrate the change in seasons, our homes should reflect this external shift. When we welcome change into our lives we must get rid of the old to make way for the new. Feng Shui can be a wonderful tool to shift the energy in your home to set the stage for new beginnings and rebirth. Below are three ways that you can use Feng Shui to prep your home for the New Year.
Detox Your Clutter-
In Feng Shui, we talk a lot about clutter and holding onto things that we no longer use or love. As we close out the year, it is important to go into each room in your home and toss out anything that does not bring you a feeling of happiness. This also should include paperwork from 2019. Spend at least a good day going through all your financials, mail, and any other paperwork that has stacked up throughout the year. To make your de-clutter party a little witchy you can perform a burn ceremony with all the paper you are getting rid of and set the intention to release the old burden of any unpaid debts and welcome prosperity and wealth into your life.
Build a New Alter-
New beginnings means cleaning house and that certainly means tending to your altar space. If you have been working with the same altar for most of the year, perhaps it is a good time to find a new deity or statue to bring into your life based on the intentions you have created for the new year. Clean your entire sacred space and bless it with your favorite cleansing herb. Find new sacred adornments to place on your altar and welcome the energies of the new year. Place a photo or image of an egg to symbolize birth and prosperity.
Clean your Front Door-
In Feng Shui your front door represents new opportunities and growth. During the New Year it is a wonderful idea to redecorate or enhance the energy of your front door. Getting a welcome mat or placing fresh flowers on a table by the door will invite these opportunities into your life with ease. It is important that when you walk up to your front door you feel there is a good sense of who you are and what you are calling in. The front door is people’s first impression on you, so make sure that it is kept clean, tidy, and cleansed. Another tip is to never put anything that is spiked near your front door such as cacti or spiked plants. This gives off a hard energy and can interfere with opportunities that are wanting to make themselves to you!
May this New Year bring you and your loved ones many blessings of abundance, health, and joy.
