happy Lunar New Year!

when we are looking for any life change, it must be supported in our surroundings. so as you whip up your next batch of new year resolutions, here are a few simple shui ways to keep them minty fresh throughout 2021:

play with your surroundings. to stage success, our environment must look and feel connected to its reality. so, make your intention the center of attention in your space. one well-placed item that triggers your enthusiasm is an exclamation point in law of attraction language. also, try moving things around regularly – new ways of seeing things come from seeing things in a new way. open space equals free thinking, so clear some room in a drawer, on the bookshelf, or on the desk. clear space clears our head, a practical hocus pocus for conspiring with the muses. bottom line: metaphorical reminders keep us conversing with our goals, which accelerates their fruition, so turn your surroundings into an open book!

tell the story! john ruskin said, “genius is only a superior way of seeing” – so, find ways to “see” what it is you want to become. if your wall gallery has grown lackluster, consider a change. what hangs on the walls hangs in your mind. or repeat a theme throughout every room of your house or the office, integrating participation in your goal’s manifestation around every corner. finally, prioritize possibility with personal touches – those signature visibilities that gush all about you! our home and work ecosystems have potential to push possibilities and drive performance when we embrace their unique powers and update them to stay in touch with our dreams!

mix in mama nature! our interior world, especially at the office, consists of hard edges and straight lines. to soften our man-made interpretations of the environment, incorporate plants (they reduce concentration-induced fatigue!), swirling prints, natural elements, and colors to bring balance into your furnishings and surroundings. when a space feels alive, our well-being thrives – an essential ingredient for self- transformation and/or organizational expansion. xo
