It’s that time of the year again when people are curious on what’s in it for us the next year. We always consider the start of the year crucial as we have this belief that it will define what may happen to us for the whole year. We always want to start fresh and hope that the coming year will have something good in store for us. Starting fresh means making changes that will hopefully bring us more blessings in the year to come, in Feng Shui, it means ushering in new energy to bring in abundance and success. Philippine Feng Shui Expert, Master Hanz Cua has recommended us these 8 essential tips to observe in welcoming New Year 2015.
- General Cleaning and Cleansing. Prepare your home by doing a general cleanup of both the inside and the outside of your house. This has been a tradition for us Filipinos that before the year ends, we always do some general cleaning. As per Master Hanz Cua, this is essential to invite abundance in 2015. Clean up any clutters that are lying around inside the house and get rid of broken appliances or gadgets. Broken objects and shabby surroundings invite poverty. When all is done, “cleanse” the premises by burning incense.
- Wear Red for Power and Green for Wealth. As per Master Hanz Cua, Green is the lucky color for the year 2015.
- New Haircut. A new hairdo will help activate the Peach Blossom Star of Romance, especially those singles who are hoping to find their special someone.
- Bountiful Medianoche Spread. Celebrating New Year’s Eve in a bountiful manner guarantees a year of prosperity. Meat fish and greens should be represented and different types of fruits and cakes for good luck. Don’t forget to leave some leftovers of each dish, this symbolizes that you will not run out of food for the rest of the year.
- Twelve Different Kinds of Fruits. Choose twelve kinds of fruits to symbolize each month of the year.
Pineapple – is the one fruit that you must always have in your basket. The Hokkien word for pineapple is ong-lai, which means “fortune comes.”
