Raman Datta on ways to make the coming year auspicious
So, it’s New Year day. Here are a few suggestions to make the year better and lucky.
The most powerful way to bring in luck is to clean the clutter. Also, everyone should rest today. No housework should be done, in case all the good luck is brushed, vacuumed or washed away.
Put cooking to rest. Avoid using scissors or knife as they lead to tension and stress. It is believed that whatever occurs on this day will somehow set a precedent for the rest of the year.
Try being a vegetarian as besides being healthy, it is a sign of respect to birds and animals.
Place a bowl of fresh oranges in your kitchen or dining table to bring in the new year with health and longevity.
Move 27 things in your home and watch as fortune and luck invade your life frome very direction.
Moving them is harder to do than you may think, but remember it will also be counted if you just move salt and pepper shakers so they sit on the other side of each other. The object is to change it up.
Refill your sugar reserves in the kitchen to ensure a sweet year ahead.
Try not to lose your temper or use foul language, as it will have impact on your fortune and luck in the following months to come.
Also, open your windows and doors for a moment to let the previous year’s energies move out and the positive, fresh and new ones enter in.
