So it is the Year of the bunnie!

Happy Chinese New Year

Hello lovelies,

This is the year of the Bunnie! And what does that bring for 2011? A lot of luck and wish granting. According to Chinese tradition, the Bunnie brings a year in which you're able to catch your breath. The Bunnie is also a symbol of the moon which means reflection is further emphasized. Coincidentally the new moon yesterday - on the eve of Chinese New Year. weird timing hey? ) The moon rules your subconscious & emotions. This is where all your hopes, dreams and fears live. This is a good opportunity and time to dig a little deeper and find out what you really want from life.

I keep catching 11:11 on the clock lately. In Angelic studies it is said that your Angels are trying to get your attention and a reminder that something magical is happening. Whenever you see the sequence 111 or 1111 show up, it means that a "doorway" has opened up in which your intentions and goals will manifest extremely quickly. Direct your attention and intentions properly whenever you see 111 or 1111, it's like making a wish when a cake with candles is presented to you.

If you add up the last 2 digits of your birth year with the age you are turning THIS year you will always get 111. Try it. It's fascinating but a lil creepy.

This is a year of big changes so be sure to know what you want to accomplish and that all your thoughts are in alignment with where you want to go in life. One way to tune into your intuition is learning how to meditate. It can help you gain more insight. Follow this link to the The Chopra Centre. There you'll find some guided meditations =)

Celebrating Chinese New Year

My parents aren't very traditional so I don't know a lot of the customs that go along with celebrating it until my step mom brought it into our family last year. It's very interesting to say the least.

On the days before the new year we thoroughly clean our homes to wash away the dirt and bad luck. Sweep away the residue of last year and start the new year fresh
On new years eve a big dinner is prepared. Each dish represents something. I don't remember it all without asking or looking it up on google
Members of the family that are married give away money in red envelops for good luck
Red is worn to scare away evil spirits and also a symbol of good luck
Ppl typically wear new clothes on new years. I guess it symbolizes a new beginning. Its a good excuse to go shopping =P

Hope you found that interesting. Happy New years everyone!
