Start Your Year off Right with Feng Shui

    The New Year  is a time for letting go of the old and making way for the new. It is a time of cleansing, healing, and hope. In order to start the year off right, we must assess what is and is not working in our lives, let go of what no longer serves us, cleanse our own energy and the energy in our homes, and put forth our intention for the year to come. Here are four very important steps that will help you make 2016 your best year yet!

Step One: Assessment
When beginning a new year it’s important to step back and assess what is and is not working in your life and make adjustments accordingly. My Life Assessment Inventory was created to help you determine areas of your life that you’d like to improve, and lets you know the part of the home to enhance to help support those areas. Life is dynamic and changes all the time. The answers to provide today will most likely be different than ones you may have had in the past, and those you will have in the future. The Life Assessment Inventory gives you a snapshot of where you are in your life right now and helps you move forward in the right direction. Click Here to take the Inventory.
Step Two: Letting Go of What No Longer Serves You
There’s no time better for getting rid of what no longer serves you than the beginning of a new year. While most people don’t relish the idea of spending time cleaning out cupboards, closets, and the garage, everyone can pretty much agree that it feels incredible once the task is done. In order to make way for the new, we must remove the old. In feng shui, clutter represents stuck energy and postponed decisions.

Wrapping up the Year with Feng Shui

The end of a year is a time for examining what is, and is not going well in our lives. It is a time for reflection and for making adjustments necessary in order to create a healthier, happier, year ahead. Feng Shui is an ancient environmental system that can be used to analyze and adjust features in our living and working spaces that directly and indirectly influence our emotional and physical well-being. By examining our spaces from a feng shui perspective, we can contemplate the year that has passed and become prepared for the months ahead.

      1. Start by taking a good look at where you have spent the most time during this past year. Whether it is your living room, bedroom, car, office, or somewhere else, that environment has had an effect on your day-to-day well- being and state of mind.
    Name ONE thing that you would like to improve the most (color, furnishings, size of space, light, comfort, etc.) about this space and make a commitment to change it by the end of this month. If the space is dark, add lighting and mirrors, if the color is not pleasing, paint or change the artwork and accessories, if the furniture isn’t comfortable, replace it,…you get the idea. Consider this improvement as an upgrade to your life during the months ahead! Your future self will thank you for it!
     2. What area of your life gave you the most stress these past twelve months?  Each compass direction in the home corresponds to a Life Aspiration Area (wealth, career, etc.). Chapter six in my book, Feng Shui that Makes Sense tells you exactly how to determine the location of each area in your home. Take a look at the area in your home that corresponds to the area in which you feel you were the least happy. Is that area cluttered?  Do you have the proper elements placed there? Have you minimized the elements that are detrimental to this meridian point? Make optimizing this point a priority to prepare for the coming year.
