Holiday Decor with feng shui

Happy Holidays Everyone!  I get these questions every year about holiday decor, so I thought I would share again 🙂

Now is the time of year when you can temporarily add all kinds of chi-enhancing things to your home and no one thinks a thing of it!  Need wood in the Family gua to have a harmonious family gathering this year? Stick the Christmas tree there with that intention. Need fire in the Fame or Health guas? Add stars and twinkling lights! Use ornaments as shiny reflective surfaces to add life to a dull space.  Angels are very helpful in the Helpful People parts of your home!

When it comes to gifts, I try my best to get something that I KNOW they would love and use.  My idea of a great gift is one that can be used until it is gone, so it doesn’t clutter up anyone’s home long term.  I like to give candles, soaps and lotions, incense, flowers, and food items.  I also like giving “experiences” like certificates for massages or facials, sports tickets (for the guy that has it all), and dinner gift certificates.  Things that are off my list (even if they ask for it) are knick-knacks and collectables that just sit around taking up space.  Hey, if you don’t want to listen to their “I’m stuck in life” complaints throughout the year, don’t be a contributor tot their stuck-ness!
