Magic Recipe for the New Year
By Sandra Ríos
Oscar González Orozco, an expert in feng shui for 35 years, gave us some tips for next year, the year of the goat, which will start on February 18.
The fixed element of the goat is earth. The goat searches for stability and peace through comfort and pleasure as he does not like to work hard and prefers pleasant jobs. The heavenly stem this year is wood.
Orozco advises us that at the beginning of the year of the goat, we should use a compass to locate the south side of our house and place the fire element in that area with plants and colors in the range of oranges and bright reds to attract wealth and activate and balance the energy. Place wooden objects in the center of the home as well as passive water surrounded with three plants to ward off conflicts. Orozco says that this year it is best to avoid sleeping with the head west; head south is a good alternative.
At home you might find disease to the southeast, so don’t sleep in that direction. Northeast is a good direction because it is the area that reflects knowledge; hence he recommends placing a large quartz or quartz gravel on a red cloth below. Put water and a red light in the north to attract money. The year 2015 is an “eight” year and invites us to seek balance, working to compensate costs.
Ring a bell with full rhythm at 12 noon, symbolizing the joy and happiness of the home.
Receive the New Year with money inside your shoes to attract economic prosperity.
To have many new clothes, wear your underwear backwards on the night of December 31.
Put a gold ring in the glass of champagne for a toast so you will always have money.
Share wheat, a symbol of wealth, among the participants (so that each person has a stalk of wheat in hand at midnight); also scatter them around the house.
To ward off bad vibes, make a tea with basil leaves and put in a glass under your bed.
Remove everything that is not useful in the house before the year ends.
Give away clothing that has not been used for two seasons because it has accumulated negative energies.
