A powerful way to set the stage for an auspicious new year is to clear out the old and start with fresh new energy in your home.
In this article I will show you how to do a major space clearing which will allow new energies into your life- in the form of opportunities- just in time for the New Year!
The 2,000-year-old art and science of Feng Shui teaches that every thing in our world is made up of life-source energy called chi. The goal is to arrange the chi or energy in our living and work spaces to utilize the optimum flow of positive chi in our lives.
Ancient civilizations have always acknowledged the power of the elements and our connection to this life-source energy. You may be familiar with the Native American practice of using dry sage “smudge” sticks to clear negative or denser energy from spaces. The physical act of lighting the sage, combined with purposeful prayer and intention is what gives it the energy to clear the space.
Approaching energy in this way is not something we have language for in our western culture, which tends to be more left-brained, but we do feel and sense it all the same.
Have you ever heard the phrase “the energy was so thick you could have cut it with a knife”? Perhaps you have gone into a home of a person who died recently and felt a thick oppressive cloud hanging over you that you did not come in with.
