“When you fully embrace feng shui, you are creating a fertile environment for you to plant your dreams and see them grow,” Lohan tells Mandatory. “Because the truth is: until you deal with your environment energetically, you’ll never have the kind of abundance or success you dream about.”

However, these aren’t the sorts of things you can learn overnight. Lohan says, “Feng shui has many layers and is often misunderstood. It’s not about moving furniture, knocking down walls, hanging weird trinkets, or painting your entire house white and throwing everything out.”

Here are some of Lohan’s tips and tricks to kick off the Chinese New Year with prosperity and good fortune.
