Feng Shui Holiday Gift Guide Gifts to keep your home high-vibe for the New Year! BY LAURA VIDA

W

Want to get noticed? Throw a party! A party can serve as a traditional feng shui remedy to uplift your home's energy and get you noticed in the world. The music, food, laughter, dancing and candles or firelight all enhance the Fire Element of your home, bringing extra luck to your visibility, fame and reputation in the world. One of the best ways to make sure that lucky energy goes out into the world and expands is to give everyone a gift to take home. Here are some of my favorite feng shui gifts that will keep the good luck flowing and elevate any environment for the New Year.

TO RAISE YOUR VIBRATION The magic of crystals is they can hold an intention and resonate that frequency into your space. You can use clear quartz near the main entrance of your home to clear the energy of anyone who comes into a space so they don’t leave any unwanted emotional residue behind in the home. Consider the benefits of citrine, the money crystal, for someone who wants to attract wealth, or try rose quartz for healing the heart and finding love. Be sure to clear and cleanse the stones first by placing them outside, or on a sunny shelf in the moonlight and sunlight for a day. Check out the bible of crystals and minerals, “Love is in the Earth” by Melody. It’s a classic for understanding the properties of each stone and would make a great gift to accompany the crystal you choose. www.loveisintheearth.org.

WELCOME GOOD LUCK IN THE NEW YEAR In feng shui, the front door is the most crucial focal point for a home. Its purpose is to attract the chi, or good luck energy from nature, into your home — and where your eye goes, the chi flows. A holiday wreath, or swag, is welcoming on the door and leads your eye toward the entrance — exactly where we want the focus. Consider ordering from www.lynchcreekwreaths.com. Lynch Creek is a family-run business in Washington State that doesn’t cut down trees; instead, it employs a sustainable practice of trimming branches from their boughs to help protect local forests with respect to their fragile ecosystems.
