Sifu Sabrina gives tips how to usher in the New Year from the feng shui perspective
New Year’s eve, switch on all the lights in your home,” Sifu Sabrina says. “and
keep them on until you go to bed. Windows should also be opened to let out the
vibes of the old year and usher in the chi of the new year. If you live beside
the sea, release a floating lamp into the waters. You know, like the Loi Krathong festival. You
can also release a sky lantern. A second alternative is to release eight gold-coloured
helium balloons with your wishes written on them. At midnight,
open the main door wide and play some lively music or ring a bell or light some fireworks. Throw away
your old wallet immediately and use a new one. It should contain new money notes and three
coins tied with red string."
