Lucky you in the happy new year!
Here's wishing you a new year just absolutely overflowing with all kinds of fabulous fortune and luck! And, well, lucky you because now you'll know just how!
It all starts with a resolution revolution! I know, I know, we're all going to lose weight and exercise more regularly. We're going to eat healthier and improve our relationships, our diets, our kid's study habits and our own drinking ones. We're going to finally find that better job and be more philanthropic or forgiving and, as usual, this will be the year when we get back in touch with all our loved ones, especially the ones whose text we still haven't returned from three weeks ago. That's right, we rush here and whoosh there and then believe that because what we resolve on this one single day can change our life for the better, forever. Yeah, um, not so much.
Now, I'm not all bah-humbug or about being a sour dumpling raining on your New Year parade. Hey, we know I believe in intention followed by action step as much as the next empowered guy. The difference, though, is that if you are still in the same-size jeans or still doing that same old job while still reaching for the Pinot after you've created a platform to change those very behaviors, well, then, sometimes there needs to more of an internal assessment and less hanging of wind chimes in the center of the kitchen when eating on black plates while wearing a white shirt because Feng Shui says that will help you shed those last 10 pounds (hint, hint).
Now, let's go ahead and explore some "secret" Shui to make 2011 your luckiest year yet!
- One of the most powerful cures to ensure a power-packed New Year is pretty practical, as well. It suggests that your entire house, as much as possible, should be completely cleaned before the New Year comes calling. This will clear the way for new and exciting energies to enter your life, immediately tagging alongside inspiration and opportunity, too. That said, you should never (and I mean never) clean your house on New Year's day itself, as in many cultures and traditions this act is believed to "sweep" your luck and blessings away. If you find that you can't tackle cleaning the whole house before the big day, then at least concentrate on cleaning up the kitchen, as this is the one space in your house that represents Health, Happiness and Prosperity, the Three Great Blessings that will lead to one spectacular year!
Now, lastly, remember that the first thing you hear as the new year slides in will have a tremendous impact and influence on the whole rest of the year. Why not then tell someone exactly what sweet nothings will produce positive somethings in 2011. Stick to this script for those most delightful results.
