New beginnings

Dark of the Moon

Plant a seed tonight

Dark of the Moon

What we envision

Will come to be by the Full Moon’s light.

This is the first lunation for 2007, and so there is tremendous opportunity for a new beginning now. As Dan Furst, astrologer and Web wizard tells us, “We already know that 2007 and 2008 will be a time of unprecedented changes in the political, financial, cultural, religious and personal sectors of our lives, and that what we’ll get depends mainly on what we love, fear and intend.

“Those who want things to stay as they are, and see no need to make any changes in themselves, are likely to find the years just ahead bumpy. Those who want to effect ‘outer’ changes by first making changes within, will see these years filled with more windows of opportunity than the Winchester Mansion in San Jose.

“If we agree that we are responsible now for creating the new planet and paradigm that we want, and for contributing what we can to a thrilling moment of awakening more luminous than anything human beings have ever dreamed or done, 2007 is right on time.”

So, in this very intention, we continue to honor the Element of Earth, the Guardian of the North and Winter. This is, in fact, the sacred time for turning inward, and effecting those changes within. One of the clearest metaphors for who we are is our home – for it is the most intimate environment to our most authentic, private self. It is the place we have the most creative control, and so truly reflects who we are.

The art of feng shui is one way to have our homes reflect our Higher Self, and therefore to both reflect, and attract to us the positive things, people and events our souls desire.

In particular, the kitchen is a great metaphor for how we nurture ourselves. Feng Shui consultant, Nancy SantoPietro, suggests that the process of cooking can become an active meditation ritual, because eating is, whether we are aware of it or not, a spiritual experience. Like many wisdom teachings, feng shui reminds us that people have Qi, the word that describes the powerful life force energy that runs through all things. How and what we eat brings into our very bodies the Qi that fuels every aspect of our existence.

From a feng shui perspective, she notes, “If you change your perceptions about cooking and food, and you will change the way you feed yourself emotionally, physically, spiritually, and financially. Allow cooking and food to become an act of nurturing, and not a chore, and you will begin to see your abundance and prosperity grow.”

That’s because feng shui experts tell us that, while the energy of wealth can be generated from many other areas in your home, the kitchen is probably one of the most significant areas since it is a “fire energy” room. Tomorrow, we’ll focus on how to enhance that abundance energy by making easy, inexpensive changes in your kitchen.
