Chinese New Year’s Day
I love these traditional tips, and we don’t have wait for Chinese New Year to implement, in fact if you are reading this and are saying to yourself, “Oy! I missed the date!” Erase that thought –
It is never to late to begin anew.. Doing something always feels so much better than doing nothing.
Enjoy these traditional tips for celebrating Chinese New Year’s Day and begin to incorporate the principles you resonate with into your daily life.
I have shared my thoughts below each tip, I would love to hear your ideas for each.
1.The first words we speak should be sweet and filled with love to insure each day will be such.
We can do this every morning, begin with our first thoughts before we even open our eyes..
2.The first thing we eat should be sweet, (yes ok to brush our teeth first) to ensure we will have only sweetness filling up all days of the New Year.
We can also approach this from a nourishment point of view, be sure we take care of ourselves with a healthy breakfast to begin the day filled with energy and sustainable vitality.
3.Wear new clothes; include something red, whether it is seen or unseen – it is still auspicious!
Red is an auspicious color, associated with the element fire, our passion, our inspiration, our recognition. As we connect to this energy we are confident, express from our hearts, we exude excitement, so having this element as a part of us from something we are wearing, to something in our wallet or purse, whenever we connect to this red power color, we FEEL It!
4.As all the preparation has been completed, there are no chores to be done on New Year’s Day to ensure we will not be burdened with hard work this year. We will prosper smooth and easy.
We should choose one day each week to embrace enjoying the day without the distraction of chores or burdens, and plan do what makes us feel good. If we cannot find a full day, begin with putting aside some “me time” even just for a few hours. Reflect on all that is full and joyful, planting the seeds to cultivate an infinite garden of love, peace and joy.
