Get Into The Spirit to Celebrate Chinese New Year
Getting into the spirit of Chinese New Year is a great way to recharge and reboot the energy of the new year. This year, 2018 Chinese New Year is February 16. You still have time to get into the spirit! And if you are reading this after the date, always go forth, as whatever time you find you become aware.. go for it! I love the tips for Chinese New Year Day because these are some things we can incorporate into our daily lives!
Prior to February 16 – Here is a suggested to do list! New Years Eve is Thursday February 15, 2018
- Clear out and de-clutter making room for new opportunities coming our way.A drawer, a shelf, a room, our wallet/purse, every little bit makes room for a lot more. This includes cleaning up any debt or finishing projects. Do not lend money NY Eve or NY Day.
- .Clean and prepare for a fresh start. Through clear windows with all the light bulbs working, all opportunity and wisdom is clear for us to “see.” Our beauty is reflected in our mirrors.
Check out your front door, entrance, make it inviting – it’s time for a new welcome mat!
- Stock the fridge & cupboards with an abundance of fresh nutritious foods. Having enough for leftovers after New Year’s Day assures us abundance all throughout the New Year.
A festive colorful fruit bowl connects our intention to abundance as oranges & tangerines represent money & prosperity; apples symbolize good health & safety; pineapples symbolize recognition & promotion. Grapes symbolize success and abundance. Be sure to feast on noodles; uncut they represent long life.
Gather the family for a celebratory dinner
- Live blooming flowers represent rebirth, new growth, new beginnings. Fortunate plants include: Plum Blossoms, Bamboo, Evergreen Pine, Pussy Willow, Peony and Azalea.
- Our appearance, actions and attitudes set the tone for the New Year. Prepare to strut your stuff ~ indulge in a manicure, pedicure, massage, new hair style; any activity to set your intention for the year to come. Prepare your wealth vase as part of your intention to prosper.
On New Year’s Day February 16,2018
- The first words we speak should be sweet and filled with love to insure each day will be such.
No crying or reprimanding children. Do not speak of the past, death, or use negative language
- 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.
- Wear new clothes; include something red, whether it is seen or unseen – it is still auspicious! Don’t wash your hair on New Years Day as it is said you will wash your luck away.
- 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. Laugh, Celebrate, and Enjoy the Day!

“My Soul Honors Your Soul.”
“My Soul Honors Your Soul.” Another definition I love is ” The Light In Me Recognizes the Light In You.” I recently posted this on instagram and my fb last week so you may have seen my comments.
So what’s with this “Oy Vey Feng Shui” you say?
Feng Shui is our first stop to program our feelings, our thoughts, our self talk. So let’s be proactive and set the stage.
I placed the “namaste” tile on my windowsill in the kitchen, I’ll see it every day, over and over again, feeling the light you shine for me to see, offering mine to you.
I placed the “gather”tile on my coffee table, reminding me how good it feels to “gather together.”
Take a look around, what do you see?
When was the last time you realized something so silly… you couldn’t stop laughing?
They are turning up everywhere… with Sia and now Keith Urban!
I am fascinated with how complex we are yet how simple it can be. My Feng Shui studies opened a new door for me to understand myself and those around me. The 5 Elements in nature are the same elements in our space and in our person. Understanding and recognizing what makes us tick ~ makes all the difference. We can be ourselves with purpose and have the understanding to adapt as needed or desired. Here a is glimpse into this world… Oh and yes.. these “Numbers” have significance… 5 Element Astrology ~ Uncover your true nature.

Here is my holiday story for you.
My friend Betsy gave me this lovely peace sign door ornament. It is made from tiny bells, it doesn’t jingle too much, it has a festive feeling but most of all it makes me smile. When I see this peace sign I think about my friend,
how grateful I am to know her, how much fun we have together, how we inspire each other. I also am reminded to feel peace in every breath.
There is a part of me that connects to these feelings when I see this peace sign.
For each thought, there is a feeling. I am now anchoring an experience to looking at this peace sign. This anchor is creating these feelings whenever I see this peace sign. I do not need to do anything consciously, I automatically begin to smile and breathe peace in every cell.
Awesome stuff ~ right!
Guess what happened next ~ One day the peace sign disappeared. One moment it was on the door ~then next it was gone.
I looked everywhere. It was as if it vanished into thin air… There was a feeling of frustration in the air!
I let it go, and every so often I would look around once more to see if I could find it.
I replayed the scene in my mind, to see what I could find that would give me a clue to where the peace sign had gone. I remembered I was taking out all the paper recycle materials. At the time, we did check the bags that were going out the door, nothing.
Whenever I would come home, I would think about that peace sign and how much I missed it. I googled and shmoogled everywhere to see if I could replace it. Nothing.
Then I just let it go.
Here is what happened next.
After another fabulous weekend away, enjoying nature, breathing peace into every cell. Feeling fulfilled by just being, I came home to find the peace sign back on the door once more. Tom found it in the garage. We have no idea how it got there.
All of a sudden my light went on inside ~ I knew then it was not until I was aligned with peace inside of me that, my peace would show up once more on the outside. The day the peace sign ran away I can recall expressing frustration and irritability, certainly not the energy of peace.
I talk about this all the time, how we are human tuning forks attracting the frequencies which we are vibrating. This is a perfect example how our energy can change our experience. How “hey diddle diddle will cause the dish to run away with the spoon”! For whatever reason this is the rhyme that keeps showing up when these things happen, reminding me not to take myself so seriously, get out of those cranky pants, get up, laugh and dance!
So now all is well, peace is back in action, singing along a favorite song. Let’s use this holiday spirit to share peace and every breath and love in every heart.
Put a little love in your heart.. and the world will be a better place and the dish will come home with the spoon!

Oh Vey, Feng Shui!
The roadblocks in our business that we can clearly see are not necessarily what is holding us back.
For some of us, we are affected more by what we can’t see. It’s about what we feel. All appears clear and in order on the outside, but on the inside, we still feel uneasy. That feeling of uneasiness speaks to the laws of Feng Shui. It’s a system of laws that focus on how you arrange your space in relation to the flow of energy and the results you receive.
Feng Shui “speaks” in metaphors. What is happening in your space is a reflection of what is happening in your life. Those principles take into account the places where we you physically store your things as a reflection of the thoughts stored in your mind – or your subconscious space.
We’ve all had that feeling when entering a room or a space, that something just was not right. How many of us actually take the time to stop, notice, and become aware?
Here is your first success key – without awareness, there cannot be change.
I have found most people’s perceptions regarding Feng Shui relates to where you place your desk, files, or chair. Maybe it’s all about the color or décor. They presume there are just one or two choices. That’s it.
Whoa, it is so much more!
It is that moment we say, “Oy vey, I just can’t take this anymore!”
Here is your first SUCCESS key: Without awareness there cannot be change.
Take a moment; what is your “Oy vey?”
Does it feel like new clients aren’t coming through the door?
Do you feel stuck in the mud, and can’t seem to move forward?
Are files and papers piling up all around you?
Does everything look perfect, clean, clear, and appealing? But, you know something just doesn’t feel right?
Let’s take an example of how this affects realtors: You have a listing on the market that just won’t sell. You have diligently worked with the client… cleaning, purging, painting, staging – it looks fabulous. The price is right. The location perfect! All properties in the area are moving; but, this one property – nothing. “Oy Vey!” you say.
The realtor did everything right, by painting and staging. But, there is something in the way of the desired outcome of the sale. Think about it this way – all of those efforts are like putting fresh flowers in dirty water.
Time to call in Feng Shui.
The ultimate Feng Shui process includes a practice called “dowsing” – the time tested tool for accessing information in our environment. Very scientifically, it accesses the information beyond the physical.
First, we use dowsing to identify the energy of our environment that we can feel. Just like on a cold, blustery day, you can feel the wind as you step outside. We do not see it. But, we know it is there.
On the other end of the spectrum, we have energy that we may identify in our physical space. It comes in the shape of the objects that direct our movement and flow. Is a chair blocking your direct path to something you access every day?
Together these energies create our experience, each just as important as the other.
Dowsing provides information without judgement. We ask to find the information creating the disturbance. The disturbance would be isolated based on the issue. In this case for the realtor, it would be preventing the sale of the property.
The desired outcome is to sell the house, which is reached by releasing stress and clearing the energy.
Whether preparing a property for sale or moving clients into a new home, it’s important to clear the energy of any stress or leftover residue from prior occupants.
This can also be said of clearing the residual energy of the builders and landscapers!
Everyone involved in that home leaves their imprint, or their “scent” so to speak.
Dowsing may be just part of the prescription to clear the roadblocks to your desired outcome.
Once the fog has lifted, you feel like a million bucks – and have the potential to earn that as a realtor!
Feng Shui resources use tools, such as dowsing, to create the right prescription to integrate the seen with the unseen.The most important part of this equation is YOU!
Here’s a favorite Feng Shui tip that will get you on your way to solving your “Oy Vey!”
Be aware of the first thing you see when you awaken each morning. Or, the first thing you see as you enter your office, or sit at your desk, or in your favorite chair. Use these first images to fill you up with feelings support.
We are made up of many different thoughts and feelings, all of which are on-call 24/7. They guide us to keep us safe, to make decisions, and to direct us to our desired outcome.
Use these “firsts” to create supportive feelings. Now, start to observe when those feelings aren’t so nurturing. When do you find yourself getting irked, annoyed or frustrated?
For example, take notice of your experience when you enter your office. Is it easy? Is it a struggle? Is it effortless to get to the door? Does the door open easily or does it stick?
Dowsing Yields Powerful Results
How does the first thing we see make us feel? These are all of the “imprints” we are creating day after day. But, here is how it’s affecting us in a bigger way. Back to our example of the office door that sticks. Since your mind anticipates that is going to happen, even before you start your trek to your office, you feel the tension in your neck starting to build, and soon your back hurts, and your mood turns sour. Why? Because your body knows it’s about to go into war with that office door again.
Can you see how powerful noticing these “firsts” are and how you can remedy your roadblocks? It is in your best interests to set your stage, to create your best-intention imprints. It’s easy.
Begin by noticing how you feel during one of your fabulous firsts – if the feeling does not serve you, take a moment to decide what one thing you can do to change it? In this case, a good handyman! Begin with just one thing, then move on to notice the next. Small steps yield powerful results. Ready for more tips?
