Harnessing the Power of the 2014 Chinese New Year!! Classical Feng Shui for Tips2014

By

Home truly is where the heart is. That’s why it’s so important that your home is nurturing, supportive, safe and makes you feel like you’re getting a great big hug when you walk in the door. No matter what’s going on in the world outside, once you step inside you should be completely relaxed and able to connect body, mind and spirit. When you implement changes in your home, you will notice that your life is also transformed instantly, dramatically and permanently.

The Solar Year begins February 4, 2014 ; and with it the transition from the slow moving Water Snake to the wood Horse representing freedom, movement, love and success

The Wood Horse year represents a time of triumph, spontaneous adventure, academic achievement,  business success and romance. It is an excellent year for travel. Horse year is about freedom, movement, returning to nature, and enjoying life. Energy is high and all your work will be rewarded. Its important to act fast in a Horse year. Make the decisions that you have been holding off on. If you are not feeling 100% confident about decision, then don’t do it. Overspending is easy in a Horse year so be mindful with that. The Horse year, it’s easy to make decisions to fast, make sure to take sometime to reflect before making decisions.

Horse have reins for a reason…if you feel the need to gently pull on the reins to slow down please know that you have the choice and power to do so. Take some time out in nature and slow down when needed and before its needed, don’t wait to fall off the horse before doing so.

The horse year is considered a fortunate year. The Magical Horse has supernatural powers, think of unicorns, Pegasus. The Chinese horse has its presence on the ground and is a helper to man, being of service. How do you plan to be of service this year of the horse? How would you like to give back?

The horse supports humans with his strength and also carries human development, progress and migrations as well as supporting thousands of years of trade and growth. It represents wealth. If you had horses you were wealthy. Every culture used horses or ponies.

The horse was also a sign of power. The horse is a powerful, strong animal but on the other hand is delicate and vulnerable. They are so deeply intuitive. As you walk up to a horse they are not thinking what you look like, how much money you have….they are feeling into your energy. They can sense kindness, authenticity, peace, strength and confidence. This is a year for you to really step into your most authentic self….as last year was about shedding your skins and this year stepping into the very best YOU!!!

Some Suggestions to Implement for 2014

Create a Vision Board Collage for the year 2014. Start with images that express what you want to “manifest” during the year. Consider the areas of love, joy, vibrant health and empowerment, then create a collage that makes your heart sing every time you look at it. Keep it somewhere that you’ll see each day and that’s private just for you.

Clear the clutter from your home. One of the most important things you can do for your finances is simply to clean up clutter! Throwing out junk and getting rid of things like excess paper, empty boxes and broken items can go a long way toward energizing your home for prosperity. This includes your car, your purse, your garage, your computer’s inbox and even your desk top.

Create an altar to reconnect with the deeper parts of ourselves.

Clear out the old and welcome in the new energies. Cleanse the energy in your home by burning sage, ringing bells, singing and opening windows and doors. Start at the front door and work clockwise around your home, getting into all the corners, nooks and crannies with either the sage or bells.

Express your gratitude for your home. The energy you give to it is the energy you will receive from it. The more you notice, appreciate and express gratitude for blessings received (no matter how small), the more good things will come your way, including money. Start a gratitude journal to track your daily thanks.

Clean your Front Door. The front door is where all good energy enters your home; a clean door attracts prosperity while a dirty or faded door repels it.

Replace burned out light bulbs. If your rooms are dark so is your financial future. Replace burned out bulbs and brighten your possibilities to attract wealth.

Clean your Windows. Windows are the eyes of your home; dirty windows cloud vision but clean windows represent a clear view of the opportunities. Windows are truly your view to the world so also repair all cracks and broken panes.

Remove Dead Plants. Dead plants symbolize dead energy. Replace them with healthy, living plants to grow wealth in your life.

Repair broken mirrors. If you look at a broken mirror you can’t see things smoothly or clearly. Remove or replace it to reflect a smooth road to prosperity.

Tighten loose door knobs and handles. If your handles are loose you cannot get a grip on your money. Tighten them and wealth will be within your grasp.

Add artwork. Being surrounded by artwork you love and things that inspire you will enter your subconscious all day. Art is also an excellent way to help create the symbols and images needed to help attract positive energy.
