Chinese astrology and the age-old wisdom of this great culture offer us tools to revitalize our homes and free ourselves from negative energies. The techniques mentioned above are part of an annual cleansing ritual, a tradition that seeks to promote good luck and eliminate what prevents us from moving forward and prospering.
Chinese Astrology: Tools to Revitalize Your Home and Attract Good Luck
The basic premise is simple: we strive to eliminate bad luck from our space and prepare to welcome the next lunar year symbolized by one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac.
Although the zodiac animal varies from year to year, the ritual remains constant, its principles are universal and applicable at any time.
Home Purification and Renewal: Deep Cleaning to Release Negative Energies and Attract Good Fortune
We started with a process of deep physical cleansing.
This ritual focuses on purifying every corner of the house from walls to ceilings. It is essential not to overlook any place, no matter how hidden it may seem.
There is a deep-seated belief in Eastern culture that negative energies can permeate these hidden areas, stagnating and causing a jamming effect on our lives.
Negative energy can be an obstacle to our personal and economic growth, it can interfere with our relationships and our overall development. If we don’t address these energies proactively, we could fall into the cycle of misfortune.
This deep cleansing goes beyond a symbolic act. It encourages us to get rid of objects that we no longer use, those that do not contribute anything to our lives. The accumulation of useless objects can manifest itself as an energy burden, so it is essential to review our spaces and eliminate what is unnecessary.
Energy cleansing ritual according to Chinese astrology: How to bring good luck to your home
According to the precepts of Chinese astrology, it is best to start the lunar year without debt and with an impeccably clean home. In this way, we create an environment conducive to the arrival of good luck.
Once the physical cleaning has been completed, it is recommended to perform an energetic cleaning. This process can begin at any time of the day that seems right for you. The first step is to open all the doors and windows in the house to allow air to flow freely.
The use of natural elements plays a vital role in this energetic cleansing. Sandalwood incense, known for its purifying properties is burned and brought to every room. At the same time, a tuning fork or bell can be sounded to help clear stagnant energies.
If you have amulets or figures that act as harmonizers of the environment, it is recommended to clean them with water and white vinegar. Rosemary, a plant with purifying properties, can be used to scrub these objects.
After cleaning, three coconut-scented incense sticks are placed to finish this process.
The last step in this ritual is to light a yellow candle, the color of purification in many cultures. The candle should be left burning until it is completely consumed.
