Franca Giuliani - Happy New Year to you!I always feel quite in flux this time of the year, because we're in between the calendar New Year and the Chinese New Year that's to arrive in mid-February. And then we also have the stars moving around in the beginning of February. Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if most of us feel very invigorated, and yet at the same time a bit unsettled.
This's definitely a new time with new energy, and we should all take advantage of it. Resolutions should be taken one step further; turn each one into an action plan. We have the entire year to manifest what we want, so we shouldn't be foolish and waste this time.
Feng Shui Homework
Here are some assignments to help you get started shifting energy and absorbing the full potential of this New Year.
- Get rid of three things in your space this month. It could be as simple a book you've been meaning to give away.
- Get rid of three things in each of your closets. You’ll be amazed how this can start a real purge of closets.
- Write down no more than five things you'd like to accomplish this year. It's said that if something isn't written down, it doesn't exist. Writing down your ideas will give them birth, and I say no more than five, because if you a make a really long list, it may be harder to focus and accomplish your goals.
- Next, take your five things and map them out on a calendar. Give themdeadlines and action points. This can help you visualize them.
- Place of symbol of each of your five things near the mirror you first see in the morning. It could be a word that you cut out of a magazine or a picture. For example, if you're looking for work, you may want to post the words, “New Job." Or if you want to visit a place, put a picture of it on or near your mirror. Once again this will help with visualizing your goals.
Don’t expect quick results. But the more emphasis and action your put towards your goals, the better chance you'll have achieving them.
