November 7th officially kicks off the season of winter in the Chinese calendar, which is also the element of water. This water season is poignant because it’s the beginning of the generating cycle of the 5 elements used in Feng Shui & Chinese medicine. The 5 elements that make up the seasons for the Chinese calendar are Water, which feeds Wood, Wood which brings rise to Fire, Fire which helps the Earth move/change, Earth from which minerals and Metals come and dew forms for Water and the cycle begins again.
Here are four steps to Harmony this Winter/Water Season:
1.) CLEAN OUT THE CLUTTER: Figuratively and literally, and make room for the new. Go through drawers and closets and if it doesn’t fit or you didn’t wear it this season give it away to charity. For every new piece of clothing or item you bring into your home an old one has to go. Out with the old and in with the new.
2.) GET RID OF NEGATIVE ENERGY: Look around your home/office and make sure you are not holding onto objects that bring negative energy into your space such as old pictures of past relationships, marriages that didn’t work, files from deals that went south and more. Remove it from your space. Everything holds vibrations and energy so don’t hold onto things you should have let go long ago.
3.) FIND THE YIN TO YOUR YANG: Decide how & what you want to surround yourself with, including people, in your space and environment. Take your lifestyle into consideration. If you are always on the go and live a hectic life make sure you come home to a peaceful & yin (calm) home. If you are shy and introverted create a stimulating and thriving environment w/big bold statement pieces and bright and invigorating colors to inspire you.
4.) ALLOW FOR CHANGE: Remember that all things change. Nothing remains the same. Not in life, not in Feng Shui, everything must change. This means your goals in life, your space, children, spouse, job, etc. If we want new things to come into our life we must let go of the old to create room for the new whether it be people, objects, attitudes or beliefs.
