Gung Hey Fat Choi!

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.

Feng Shui Fun Holiday Tip #2

Movement should be effortless throughout your home,

meandering as if you are a stream of water

flowing easily from room to room with ample space around furniture and objects.

We are coming into the season of winter, the element of water, the energy of adaptability and flow.

It is a perfect time to dream of our hearts desires and make plans for the coming New Year.

Connecting to the feelings of our thoughts and dreams,
we find we can make it so!

 

 

 

 

Rise Up

The events beginning last week, leading to today have been wonderful causes to celebrate, opening our awareness to be grateful for all our bounty..

Monday Sept 17 brought us the Jewish New Year, leading to Friday Sept 21 International Day of Peace & we welcomed the Autumn Equinox as it arrived Saturday.

Today for the Jewish community the highest of holy days Yom Kippur.
Chinese Moon Festival arrives Sept 29 here  (Sept 30 in China) –

All celebrations of our harvest, together with family and friends.

 

My Friend Charlotte Chandler Stone of  

Stone Yoga in Teaneck sent this message, it touched me so, I want to share it with all of you…

“May the light of understanding guide our thoughts.

May the light of truth enrich our words.

May the light of loving kindness illumine our hearts.

May we become instruments of peace.

May we live with purpose, and help heal the world.”
Thank you Charlotte   

I feel inspired, I hear Josh Groban singing
listen to his brilliance, connect to what inspires you to “rise up.”
Peace…

“Sometimes the things we least expect bring our brightest inspiration. 

It only takes a moment to take a breath, 

It only takes a moment to become inspired”
