Choose and energize your prayer beads for the New Year.

Choose and energize your prayer beads for the New Year.

As the days get shorter now in the Northern hemisphere heading towards the Winter Solstice it is a perfect time to recenter ourselves. Your luck and happiness in the New Year will depend on your ability to create and maintain a positive outlook. As we go within we realize the source of our happiness is not in the material objects around us, or even in the connection with our friends and family – but in our own attitudes, minds and hearts. The solstice is a powerful time to fine-tune our focus, purge our selfishness and find our gratitude and humility for the blessings that surround us. Make sure to get out in nature during daylight hours – if possible by woods or water to get an important solar charge and clear any mind-clutter. This is the best way to reduce fears and negative thinking we can get caught up in.

In this important week, find a beautiful river stone that easily fits in the palm of your hand, or a set of prayer beads. Rinse in cool water and leave them in a sunny window for a day to cleanse their energy and give them a solar charge. Now leave them by your desk and make sure to handle them on a daily basis while doing a brief positive-thinking meditation to begin to charge them with positivity for your New Year.

I will be giving more Feng Shui suggestions for your New Year in the next few posts.
