As I travel on vacation to Rio with my family I called in great colleagues and friends to share their wisdom on “New Years’ Fresh Starts” with you. I thank you all for this AMAZING year, for your support and friendship!
This week’s post is from Gwynne Warner founder of www.10KBlessingsFengShui.com and one of the most generous and loving people I know. A Feng Shui practitioner in this post she shares with us wonderful ways of welcoming the New Year. I am sure you’ll love her post as much as I do.
Happy New Year!
First, from a Feng Shui perspective, it’s important to release all the stagnant, exhausted and negative energies of the current year before making wishes for 2013. As you clear away clutter and deep clean the house to welcome the New Year as an honored guest, really visualize that you’re washing away, sweeping away any illness, quarrels, stress, disappointments or any negative energies from the past year.
On New Year’s Eve, turn every single light on in the house (and keep them on until you go to bed!) and open the windows (even just a crack) to let the old year out and the new year in.
At midnight, open the front door wide and “welcome” in new, bright auspicious energy for the new year. With great glee and joy, ring bells or gongs or at least bang on some pots and pans to awaken the front entrance with opportunities and happy chi!
Remember that what happens the on first day of a New Year really sets the energy for the entire year—so plan a day that’s happy, energized, healthy, restful and prosperous! Avoid being sad or grumpy or stingy or using negative language.
Early in the New Year, set a strong and heart-felt intention wish or goal for 2013 with a Wishing Ceremony or Feng Shui Cure.
Here’s the thing with making wishes—you have to visualize AS IF YOUR WISH HAS ALREADY COME TRUE and really FEEL that possibility, joy and excitement!
There is a very special power to actually embodying your wish or goal with a simple ritual. Here are some ways you could make wishes for the New Year:
