Boost Holiday Cheer wherever you are in the world with these 12 Quick Feng Shui and Energy Tips!
Holidays are a time of joy, of stress, of fun activities, parties and obligations. Sail through this year’s holiday with ease and grace.
#1) Hang a bell on your front door to attract good energy and opportunities and gain clarity about your career. You can leave the bell there all year long if you like. Bells also help you (and others) make decisions. See my Bells Brrrring Good Things blog for more information on the magic of bells in Feng Shui adjustments.
#2) Balance the fire energy in your space. With the holidays comes a lot of red (fire energy) and green (wood energy which feeds the fire). By adding a balance of the other elements, things will feel calmer:
Water ~ Shape is wavy, Color is black/navy blue, Material is water
Metal ~ Shape is round, Color is white, Material is metal
Earth ~ Shape is square, Color is yellow, Material is earth/clay rocks/ceramics
#3) Keep your stove clean and use all the burners. This will activate more wealth and abundance since the stove represents wealth. Read more about the meaning of Stoves and get my 9 Fast Feng Shui Fixes here!
#4) Send love to family and friends, especially those that seem to irritate or annoy you at this time of year. How do you do that?
Envision love coming from your heart (could be a pink mist, red or pink hearts, balloons or just a cozy, loving feeling) and send it out to the person as you are thinking about them. Imagine that mist, color or hearts enveloping the person in cozy goodness. Ahhhhhh….Love truly transforms all things! For more about romantic love, review my Feng Shui for Love blog.
#5) With all the holiday excitement, it’s important to stay grounded. Taking a walk outside, even if it’s only for 10 minutes will help clear your head and ground your body in the hear and now. Or visit somewhere new to gain a fresh perspective. Find more thoughts on Change Your Environment to Change Your Life here.
#6) Clear out the clutter! Get rid of everything you no longer love or use to make room for the things you really want. Pick up Marie Kondo’s amazing book, “The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up” or review my 3 blogs on clearing clutter. Clutter is not your friend any time of the year, but especially now with the extra holiday decorations about.

#7) Find a quiet space to recharge. This could be a meditation or reading nook or even a hot bath with candles and soft music can whisk you away from the hustle and bustle of this season. Maybe cozying up on the couch to watch a holiday classic or rent War Room that just came out on Redbox which will not only recharge, but inspire you!
#8) Drink lots of water to keep hydrated, to stay grounded and to help cleanse your system of the delicious non-healthy food you’re enjoying. This is especially needed when drinking alcohol so have a glass of water with your egg nog or wine!
#9) Take an Epsom salt bath to clear your personal energy field. Emotions run high at this time of year and it’s helpful to keep your own energy field clean and clear of other people’s muck.
#10) Clear your home by smudging with sage. This has also been proven to reduce the bacteria in your space so it will keep you mentally, emotionally and physically healthier. This is especially important after hosting parties as people drag in lower energies and often leave them behind when they go. I have Clearing Kits on my Etsy site.
#11) Set your intentions for each holiday gathering you attend. Think about how do you want to feel and what you want to experience. Peaceful, joyful, relaxed, happy, fun, laughter, love & connection are a few words that come to my mind. The drive time to your holiday gatherings is a great time to do intention-setting!
#12) Start dreaming of next year. What do you want to be, do and have in the New Year? Use the Feng Shui life areas to bring balance to 2016 by setting goals or intentions for each area: Wealth, Family, Knowledge, Career, Travel/Helpful People, Creativity & Children, Partnership, Fame & Reputation and Health (which touches all areas of your life). Sit down with magazines and tear out pictures of things you like. Think about places you want to visit or stuff you long to do. My Intentional Goal Setting blog provides more ideas on making next year an amazing success!
