Chinese Silver Pockets Full: 5 Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays in August!

Posted on August 2, 2014 by

Chinese Silver PocketsFive Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays in one month! While it’s a common myth that the ‘Chinese Silver Pockets Full’ happens only once every 823 years, it’s actually closer to every 11 years. The Chinese, and many Asian cultures, believe that this is a month to be grateful and appreciate the abundance you have while sharing what you have with others. This opens your pockets to receive more – thus the idea of pockets full of silver! Chinese Silver Pockets Cal2

The first step to creating this abundant life is to first notice all the goodness that surrounds you every day. Abundance comes when you open yourself up to receive by being grateful, sharing, and helping others. In doing so, you open the door to receive more.

The second step is to take direct action towards achieving your goals. Make productive, wise decisions in all that you do, and help those around you in the workplace or at home do the same. Take heed and “walk the talk” all you workplace managers!

The third step is to live a balanced life in harmony with everyone and everything around you. This is known as ‘Feng Shui’, the science of the movement, energy, and unseen forces in the environment. It is one of the Five Arts of Chinese Metaphysics, and is about harmonizing everyone with everything. It balances architecture and environment in metaphoric terms of invisible forces that bind the universe, earth, and man together. This impacts everything from the structure and design of cities, buildings, and surroundings, to our everyday decisions and choices!

This August, I’m going to give ‘Silver Pockets Full’ and ‘Feng Shui’ a try! I’ll let you know how it works for me, and please leave your comments about how it works for you on my blog. After all – we have nothing to lose, and maybe we have a whole lot to gain!
