A few years ago I learned the importance of using the ancient art of Feng Shui in one’s home and office environments. I quickly put it into practice to allow the good energy to flow. Feng Shui is the art and science which reveals the energetic balance to any given space with respect to health, good fortune and prosperity. It was developed over 3,000 years ago in China and is used by many people all over the world today.
Proper Feng Shui, or “Good” Feng Shui can result in good luck, good fortune, prosperity, and good health. Bad or poor Feng Shui can result in misfortune, bad luck, and poor health respectively.
Clearing Clutter and Feng Shui – Spring Cleaning Anyone?
Clutter is on of the major things that can block you from manifesting things in your life. When there is clutter, there are typically blocks which do not allow the energy to change or to shift. Your office, home and immediate area needs to be clear of clutter. The space should be open and inviting which allows more good things to come into your space. This is because the energy where you spend the most time should be the most clutter free environments. The most positivity can flow from environments that are free from clutter so that the energy can flow freely.
It is also important that you clear items that either bring you negative energy, negative thoughts, or broken items or items that you do not resonate with. If things in your home that give you a bad vibe or that you don’t like, it’s time to let those items go. If these items belong to someone else, try to keep them out of your way so that you are not looking at them daily or reminded of them so they are not brought into your immediate sight or immediate reality.
If there are things in your immediate environment that you are not using regularly or not in an orderly fashion, you may need to go through them and purge what you don’t need. I come from a family home that is super cluttered and boarders on hording behavior. My father saved things from the 1970s and has a belief that he can “fix” the broken items he saves. Clearly, I had to step outside of that and through my own process of clearing, I’ve learned to let things go. I have learned to throw away things or donate items that I was not using or did not need. I learned through my own process that hoarding could hurt me rather than help me. So I go through a process of purging at least once per year, sometimes more often if needed.
Also, I arrange things in my office and in my home according to the principles of Feng Shui. I clear things out regularly and reorganize as necessary. Having a clutter free environment that is visually stimulating will help you in attracting more positivity in your life and will make you feel better.
When you feel better and when you are focused on positivity and productivity, you will attract and create more abundance in your life.
You can do this too. Just start by removing things that you are ready to let go of and clear out the clutter. I used to be a big magazine junkie and I have learned to let them go or organize the few that I’d like to keep on a bookshelf. Then every so often I go through them and purge the ones I’ve read and others that I no longer need. Also, I started getting magazines on my tablet instead of receiving paper copies. This was another way that I avoided clutter in my immediate environment. I also established a mail routine where I throw away all junk mail immediately and created a system for bills, catalogs and any other mail so that it is organized and not creating clutter.
Ready to attract more abundance, feel better, and get more done?
Now it is time for you to take an inventory of your own clutter and clear it. Here are some questions to get you started.
What is cluttering your office, bedroom or living room?
What items do you need to let go of or donate to clear up your space?
What systems can you put in place to clear your clutter for good?
Also, take note of how you feel after you’ve cleared your clutter. Notice any changes in your energy?
