Happy Lunar New Year!
Chinese New Year is separate from Feng Shui. We don’t need to celebrate Chinese New Year to bring good chi, good luck, prosperity, or wealth into our home and our lives.
Practicing Feng Shui alone on it’s own is already working with earth energy to bring in those auspicious energies into our home, office, space, and lives.
But if it’s part of custom, tradition, or just simply want to celebrate and get involved in Chinese Lunar New Year, let's celebrate. But be careful with using red.
Also, be cautious when using red for Valentine's Day.
All Feng Shui energy has its yin and yang, positive and negative traits. The #5 Feng Shui energy has mainly negative traits that can cause relationship problems, severe health issues, loss of wealth, and other negative outcomes.
Another area to look out for is the #2 in the SW. The #2 is also known as the #2 Illness Star. The #2 is also an earth element. Thus, the fiery red color will support the #2 earth element where it’ll increase the illness energy in health, wealth, and relationship. So if your front door faces SW direction, do not decorate the patio and exterior front door with red.
I would also exclude celebrating in the west where the number 7 is located at. The #7 is also known as the #7 Robbery Star. It robs health, wealth, and relationships. Although the #7 is a metal element, the fiery red color destroys the #7 metal. It is more difficult to control destruction. We want to keep peace and keep things balanced.
Also, people activate, move, rotate, and absorb feng shui energies. Thus, the longer we celebrate in the west room, the more we activate and absorb the #7 Robbery Star.
And lastly, I would not celebrate or decorate the NE room with red for February, as well. And if your front door faces the NE direction, do not decorate the patio and exterior front door with red for February.
This is only at the annual feng shui energy level. How does the permanent feng shui energy of the home, office, or space look like?
It is best to get consultation to know for sure if a space can take the color red for Chinese New Year, Valentine's Day, Christmas, or general decorations. Click here to learn more about the different feng shui services I have.
Alright. It's fin to use splashes of red for the festivities--minor splashes of red. Small items such as a vase of red flowers, red throw pillows, or other small red décor in those rooms and at those directions. Do not go all out with red table cloth, red banners and signs, or rows of red lanterns, or a grand red flower tree. Stick to small splashes of red in those rooms and at those directions. Remember, the more red there are, the more we feed to the inauspicious feng shui energies.
Thank you, and may this year bring your good health and prosperity!
What is Salt Cure?
The three main ingredients for salt cure are salt, water, and metal.
Salt is believed to have the ability to absorb and transmute negative energies. This belief has dated back thousands and thousands of years ago and still is practiced today to reverse bad luck, hit the devil’s evil, repel negative energies, and used in holy water.
Metal is used as a conductor. There are different types of metal that conducts better than others, but in this case, keep it simple and use whatever metal coins or rings in hand.
Water, especially impurity water, is also used as a conductor. The large surface at the top touches the air can absorb the negative or challenging energies from the air. And it also helps transmute negative energies from the salt into crystals.
So basically, some kind of chemical reaction happens between salt, water, and metal.
How To Make Salt Cure
1. Fill the glass jar with course sea salt. 3/4 full.
2. Add six coins or washers.
4. Add water.
What Are Salt Cure Used For?
It is believed that salt cures can be used for depression, illnesses, arguments, negative energies, and ghost energies.
At this point of my life, I’ve only used salt cures to balance challenging feng shui energies. And I do not recommend relying on salt cures for depression, illnesses, or arguments. Please seek professional help in those areas.
When to Dispose Salt Cure?
There is no timeline on when to dispose salt cures because it depends on how much crystals are formed around the brim of the glass. It could take weeks, months, or even over a year to form enough crystallizations before disposing.
The crystallizations depends on the negative energies in the area, how the area has been properly feng shui, weather, or other factors.
Because the timeline is unknown and depend on the area, it is best to check on salt cures on a monthly basis.
Where to Place Salt Cure
Most schools of feng shui like to use salt cures on the #2 and #5 flying star energies. My school of feng shui use salt cures mainly on the #5 and #7, and some #3 and some #2 flying star energies.
And so, on an annual feng shui energy level, place salt cures in #5 in the center, #7 in the west, and maybe #3 in the east and maybe #2 in the southwest of the home or business for 2022.
It is best to also place salt cure based on the permanent feng shui energy because that is the main characteristic energy of the home, office, or space. Basically, permanent energy is the DNA of the home, office, or space.
The yearly feng shui energies changes the mood in that space for the year. And the monthly feng shui energy also changes the energy in that space on another level.
Example of Where to Place Salt Cure in a Home
If I was to look at only the annual feng shui energy level, I will most likely add four salt cure jars for the below home/example.
If I was to look at only the permanent feng shui energy level, I will most likely add four salt cure jars for the below home/example too.
And so, between the annual and permanent feng shui energy levels, I will most likely make a total of eight salt cure jars for this home.
To Only Feng Shui with Salt Cure
It is not advisable to rely only on salt cure to feng shui a space. If the space is not properly feng shui, the salt cures will crust more and will need to change out more frequently.
Changing them out more frequently cost more and there is more chances to get afflicted by handling jugs full of negative energies.
It is best to properly feng shui the home, office, or space to reduce crystallization so that the salt cure can stay out for as long as it can.

New moon marks the beginning of a new lunar cycle and is often used to manifest new intentions and new goals. January 2, 2022 is the beginning of a new lunar cycle of the year.
My family and I created a vision board for 2022. But if a vision board isn't your thing, you can make a simple list because when we think, we vibrate energy. When we speak, we vibrate another level of energy. And we when we do (here we write especially hand writing), we vibrate the highest energy to this physical plane and the Universe.
Be sure to set the intention in your wealth (feng shui) room to add another layer of success, wealth, and abundance.
Wishing you all a yin yang and prosperity for 2022!
