Auspiciousness is an effervescent and radiant energy field that magnetizes good fortune, success, and prosperity. The best way to create this field of energy is by inviting sheng chi into you and your spaces.
Here are some simple ways to create environments and a lifestyle conducive to auspicious and fortunate luck!
- Keep your spaces sparkling clean! Move out and dispel all old, stale, stagnant and tired energies. Continually renew and refresh your spaces energetically.
- Surround yourself with uplifting images, sounds, and scents. Ring bells, chimes, and singing bowls. Burn good quality incense. Diffuse pure essential oils such as sweet orange, frankincense, or kaffir lime. Have bright, colorful, and beautiful paint, art, décor and clothing.
- Have healthy life force with lush green plants and landscaping, fruit, and flower trees. Arrange colorful and fragrant fresh flowers and place throughout your spaces.
- Invite movement. Wind chimes on the breeze, birds at the feeder, fish swimming in the aquarium, or water features.
- Use bright and golden electric lights. Bring radiance, sparkle, and glimmer with fairy lights, candle lanterns, chandeliers, sparklers, crystal spheres, mirrors, and metallic décor.
- Offer love and kindness. Express gratitude. Be generous. Laugh and be happy!
- Host and attend happy occasions such as celebrations, feasts, weddings, birthdays, and anniversaries.
- Bring one new item such as a piece of furniture, décor or art into your home and business to stimulate growth chi and to compound your sheng chi. It’s also a great idea to give away one item (or more!), leaving physical and metaphoric space for new blessings. These two practices are even done by Taoist monks in their temples.
And, of course, celebrate the Chinese New Year!
