The Importance of Clearing Clutter Before Beginning a Feng Shui Practice
Feng Shui Clutter Control! Change your surroundings to support and uplift yourself in new ways. Now, when the prospects of new beginnings are in mind, the right time presents itself to make those resolutions and to create a positive space for your wishes to manifest. Create a void for attracting new opportunities for success by clearing old, stagnant energy stuck in your surroundings.
Feng Shui Clutter Control focuses on both the physical and spiritual aspects of living with the interruption of harmonious flow in our surroundings. Since physical clutter contributes to how we feel about ourselves and how we relate to our environment, I tell my clients to clean up and organize before attempting to enhance their surroundings with Feng Shui applications.
As a Feng Shui Consultant, I have been into homes where I was not welcome to check the garage, basement or home office so my consultation included a discussion of the negative impact of clutter on the occupants. Clutter usually accumulates over time, and without realizing it, people become accustomed to living with low-level vibrations emanating from piles of old papers, boxes, trash and unused items.
Energetically, everything emits vibrations that “talk” to us. Steeped in low energy levels, we can become irritable, inefficient, lazy and even depressed. Candace used to keep piles of newspapers and magazines on the night stand by the bed in hopes that she would have time to read them before going to sleep. When she wanted to settle in for the night, the collection would start telling her that she was behind in her reading. (She had a similar set that she carried around in a briefcase.) I’m happy to report that after the pile was cleaned out and the few remaining items were organized into a drawer, she was able to go to bed without guilt!
It takes dedication and time to clear clutter. I tell my clients that it is a continuous process. I advise them to investigate simple organizing systems that help them sort, file and store needed items. The de-cluttering test is easy: Ask yourself, “Do I need it? Do I use it? Do I love it?” Everything else is thrown out or given away. Negative or unused objects have to be eliminated in order to lighten your physical, mental, emotional and spiritual load.
