One of the most auspicious things you can do is to prepare for the energies of the coming year.

Here are some traditional rituals and practices to help you get ready. Listen up Brooklyn Spiritual Group !!!
Spring Cleaning: Before the New Year arrives, it’s customary to thoroughly clean your home. This ritual is believed to sweep away any lingering bad luck and make way for fresh energy and good fortune. Pay special attention to corners and hidden spaces, and don’t forget to declutter and organize.
Decorate with Red and Green: Red and green are considered lucky colors during this festive season. Red symbolizes happiness and good luck, while green represents the Wood element of the Dragon. Decorate your home with lanterns, banners, and artwork featuring these colors to invite positive energy.
Hang Spring Couplets: Spring couplets, known as “Chunlian,” are decorative scrolls with auspicious messages and wishes for the New Year. Hang them on your door frames or walls to welcome good luck and blessings into your home.
Make Dumplings: Dumplings are a must-have dish during Chinese New Year. Their shape resembles ancient Chinese currency, symbolizing wealth and prosperity. Gather your family and friends to make and enjoy these delicious treats together.
Light Firecrackers and Fireworks: Traditionally, firecrackers were used to scare away evil spirits. While safety regulations have restricted their use in many places, you can still enjoy fireworks displays in some areas. If it’s permitted, lighting a few firecrackers can add an authentic touch to your celebrations.
Offer Sacrifices to Ancestors: Paying respects to ancestors is an integral part of Chinese culture. Set up an altar with offerings like fruit, incense, and ancestral tablets to honor your family’s heritage and seek their blessings.
Reunion Dinner: On New Year’s Eve, gather your loved ones for a sumptuous reunion dinner. This meal symbolizes family unity and is often the most important part of the celebrations. Traditional dishes include fish (prosperity), chicken (togetherness), and noodles (longevity).
Give Red Envelopes: Red envelopes are given as gifts, especially to children, during Chinese New Year. These envelopes typically contain money and are believed to bring good fortune and ward off evil spirits.
Watch Dragon and Lion Dances: Seek out local performances of dragon and lion dances, which are believed to bring good luck and drive away negative energy. These colorful and energetic dances are a treat for the eyes and ears.
Express Gratitude: Finally, take some time to reflect on the past year and express gratitude for what you’ve received. This positive energy will set the tone for the year ahead.
As we welcome the Chinese New Year of the Green Wood Dragon, let’s embrace the traditions and rituals that have been passed down through generations. By doing so, we invite prosperity, happiness, and good fortune into our lives, ensuring a year filled with growth and positive transformation. Happy Chinese New Year!
