Basic Chinese New Year’s Ritual to Enhance Feng Shui Luck!

Sometimes we get too engrossed with different Feng Shui rituals or even with Feng Shui items or charms whenever the Chinese New Year is coming. However, there are some very simple Feng Shui ritual that we need to do so that we enhance luck and the positive chi of our house or lives.

1. DO A SPRING CLEANING!
Before Feb. 4 to before the Chinese New Year whichever comes first, we need to do a spring cleaning. Spring cleaning means we clean up all the dirt that I might have accumulated in our house. Throw away all the things that you no longer use. Things that are kept for sentimental reason should be hidden properly or should be displayed in a uncluttered area.

Make sure that there is not a single item in your house is broken or chipped, especially when it comes to your kitchenware or plates or glasses.

2. CHANGE YOUR WALLET!
Make sure you change your wallet every year, and make sure you don’t keep any unwanted or unnecessary papers inside your wallet.

3. BUY NEW CLOTHES!
Buy or get yourself a new set of clothes, this should include underwear. If possible buy a new pair of shoes and socks. If budget is a concern make sure you clean your shoes. Then wear them on Chinese New Year’s day.

4. HAVE A FENG SHUI CLEANSING BATH!
Take a Feng Shui Cleansing Bath or Shower! Light 9 red candles inside the shower room and take a shower. If you’re in the tub put 1 cup of sea or rock salt and mix it in the water and soak yourself for 10 minutes. If you’re in the shower, after rinsing your shampoo and soap, gently rub yourself with sea or rock salt and then rinse yourself with water.

Throw the red candle away. For different people sharing a single shower room make sure you have your own 9 pcs of red candle. Do not share. Make sure you do this before lunch time on Chinese New Year’s day.

5. THROW ONE OLD ITEM FROM YOUR LIVING ROOM AND GET A NEW ONE.
Make sure you throw one old item from your living room and get a new one. Try to make sure to replace the old item with somebody that ‘happy’ in nature, meaning it should be colorful.

6. RE-ENERGIZE YOUR FENG SHUI ITEMS.
Re-energize all your Feng Shui items. You can bring it to a Feng Shui shop and they may energize it for you. But I think the best way to energize it is to bring it to a Buddhist-Taoist Temple and pass it over the incense burner three times. I also do Feng Shui energizing ritual.

Another simple way to re-energize your Feng Shui items is to tie a red ribbon around it. Replace the ribbon whenever it gets dirty, but this is not meant to replace the more effective way of re-energizing your feng shui that are mentioned above.

7. LIGHT AN INCENSE!
Light an incense in all four corners of your property, outside the main door (gate or main door), and in all the rooms. Do this before 12 noon and preferably between 7 and 9 in the morning which is the Dragon Hour.

Do this ritual on Chinese New Year’s day or on February 4 whichever comes first.

Personally I like sandalwood for this ritual. If possible recite the Om Mani Padme Hum Mantra 108 times in each of the room.
