Countdown to Flying Star Feng Shui – Day 3

Sweep away the old qiToday is the day you’ll want to get all your cleaning done for the new year especially if 2010 was not a good year for you because tomorrow begins the Year of the Rabbit. 

Traditionally, you do not want to do any housework on the first day of the Chinese New Year.  That means you’ll want to do all your cleaning today so that you’ll be ready to place your 2011 Flying Star Feng Shui activations and remedies on Friday, Feb. 4.

Today is the day you’ll want to sweep the house, the porch, the garage and clear away the clutter. 

Throw out, donate or give away anything you no longer need or want in the coming year.  This includes toys, bikes, clothing, books, cookware, movies, CDs, electronics, etc.

You’ll also want to open your cupboards, drawers and windows to let the old energy out.  If it’s cold where you live then just crack the windows open enough that you don’t freeze yourself out.  You can even turn on ceiling or floor fans to help blow the old energy (called chee, spelled ‘qi’) out for about 30 minutes.

If you’re into saging your home, today is the day to do it.  You can also burn some incense if you prefer.

Fill your sink with water and a couple of drops of lavendar essential oil and then wipe down the counters and cabinet doors in your home to release the stagnant energy too.

If 2010 was a great year for you then you’ll want to hang on to the good qi so don’t blow it out or do any extensive cleaning today.

Tomorrow I’ll let you know what to do for the Chinese New Year.
