Chinese New Year 2022 for the Year of the Tiger starts on February 1 (at sun down of the night before).
However, the energy of the house will change on February 5, which is considered the official end of Winter and Beginning of Spring.

Here are my key tips on how to prepare your house and yourself to receive the prosperous vibrancy of this New Year:
This is the time for some big celebrations – ideally 10 days – during which cook plenty, spend time with family and give plenty of gifts to children (specially red envelops with cash in it – one or two bucks will suffice). The idea is that the Universe has just “open the fosset” of the brand new, fresh and vibrant Qi for the year and so we should store up with it as much as we can. Big dinner bashes with plenty of leftover in the refrigerators to be eaten up the following days are an example of it.
Also, these big celebrations have the dual effect of storing up good Qi for the year ahead, to prevent or buffer from the adverse effcts of any bad luck that maybe coming in the near future. So, given these days and ages, go have a good time!
But first, one needs to make space to receive all these plenty and this is how:
Discard anything that is broken or unfixable. Even things you have meant to fix for a long time but have still been left sitting there. This can mean anything: clothing, furniture, bikes, cars, or anything that has just been sitting there collecting dust. The general rule is either fix it or toss it now. For every one of these broken or unfixable items is holding back a piece of your energy. However, the simple act of fixing or letting go of these items will release the quantum particle of your own energy you have left trapped in them. This is a technique to disengaged your energy from something that doesn’t work, so you can direct it towards more efficient pursuits.
Ideally, this is the very best time for an early spring cleaning. Though you may have already done so in preparation of the Winter Holidays, this is a spring cleaning with a purpose. While you are actually dusting off, brushing up, and polishing up things, you are also removing stagnant energy from every room of the house and opening up the space for the life-force of the New Year to come in.

For 7-video, we work together on decluttering, clearing and sprucing up our residence room by room, and we’ll get the energy flowing and thriving again.
You can have your housekeeper, or your friends and children helping you out. In fact, often because they are not as attached to the items involved as you are in the process, they may help you move through it all faster and more effectively.

Why is it so important to fix all these things before the New Year starts?
Because the newly arriving energy of the year can either be supportive for you or not supportive. This is especially true this Year for the Chinese sign of the Tiger and the Monkey. If you are stuck for a whole year with un-supportive energy, all things that are precarious in your life—physically, financially, and in your relationships—will come back to haunt you over the next 12 months. And so, it is much easier preventing the drama from happening just by doing these few easy steps above.
Since we are all spending a lot more time in our homes than ever before, this the perfect time to have a Feng Shui Consultation for your home (and home office) to make sure the New Year will support your living and working environment at its best. Let me know when you’d like to schedule your consultation for the New Year.
