Daily Feng Shui News for April 2nd – ‘National Day of Hope’

On today’s ‘National Day of Hope’ let’s make a symbol that will visually remind you to hold hope in your heart for whatever your desires may be. Take a piece of green construction paper and cut it into a star shape. Conversely, you can draw a star on plain paper and color it green. A green star has long been believed to be a symbol of hope. Keep this image somewhere where you can see it on a steady basis and then hold out hope that all of your dreams will come true.
