Feng Shui Tips: Aligning with the Cycle of Winter

 

 

In the northern hemisphere, we are moving into winter and the element of water. It’s quieter, darker, colder and a time to go inward with yin activities like resting, meditating, inner reflecting, etc. Here are some feng shui suggestions to align with the season:

 

 

  • Purge books, clothes, files, and images that represent your “old” self.
  • Cultivate rituals of inner reflection incorporating the element of water by taking baths, soaking your feet & using hot tubs.
  • Add more warmth to your space with candles, fires in the hearth and red/orange throw blankets.
  • Invite your family to sit down together and share heart warming stories.
  • Allow additional time for rest & relaxation.
  • If you don’t already do so, start a journal to express creativity and gratitude.
  • Choose full spectrum bulbs in lamps and fixture most used.
  • Use citrus essential oil combinations for a lively boost.
  • Enroll in a class to learn something new.
  • Participate in a community service project.
  • Use ceiling fans in the reverse direction to move chi.

Be mindful of your thoughts. As you know, what you think you become.
