Daily Feng Shui Tip for August 17 – ‘National Thrift Shop Day’

Today’s energies are vintage since this is ‘National Thrift Shop Day.’ Feng Shui believes that energy is an actual ‘thing’ that can invisibly stick around long after the breath that gave it life has moved on. So while they are considered treasures to some, vintage items and antiques carry with them ‘predecessor energy.’ This same energy can bring negativity from previous owners into your home. It’s fine to own vintage items, but not before ringing a bell over them nine times. If you’ve found something unique and you have no idea where it came from, it needs to be cleansed. Previously owned items were around other people’s energies and those energies stick. If you don’t want to get unintentionally stuck yourself then you’re well advised to burn an incense stick or sage leaves, letting the smoke surround the vintage stuff. This is a fast and easy way to cleanse them of their own past so that you can both start fresh!
