Feng shui lucky number 9 is in triplicate today! Use the day to set intentions for new wishes/dreams, setting goals for future projects, getting organized for success. Launching intentions on 9-9-09 should give you an extra boost of Qi (chi = energy).
What makes 9 so special?
There are 9 parts to the feng shui bagua map. Multiples of 9 are used for sacred things like mala beads (prayer strands will have 27 or 108 beads in them for reciting repetitive mantras, 9’s are also used for “red envelopes” to seal feng shui Qi energy after feng shui wisdom is offered). The Chinese grocery store “99 Ranch” used 99 for ‘double luck’. When selecting fish for a lucky fishtank, 8 black and one gold = 9, or, 8 gold and one black.
This month I feel inundated with “to do” lists both professional and personal. This pic aptly describes that feeling, doesn’t it? Even though I must plow through my sticky notes and get things done one at a time, I still know that I MUST remember to breathe, take a moment to savor a cup of tea, and get outside for a walk to remind me of my humanity. One of the other things I treat myself to while I am working? I periodically take a break to read the delightful rambles of Corine G on her blog HiddenInFrance. Reading this blogger’s work is like biting into a chocolate covered cherry–you know just looking at it that it’s going to be delicious, but when you actually bite into it you’re still surprised at how tasty it actually is.
