In many traditions, wishes and resolutions are always made on the New Year, and as usual, Feng Shui puts a decidedly different spin on becoming a resolutionary soldier. This philosophy instructs that you should write your New Year resolution on a piece of paper and then place it inside an envelope. This envelope must be red in order to activate your desires and bring your dreams to life. Then you simply burn the envelope and the contents inside, as this is believed to complete the empowering action steps that this tradition says will soon make your wish come true.
