Clutter Clearing Tips

If you think the time to clear your clutter is not time well spent, let me change your mind with feng shui. It will be really easy. Using feng shui to clear your clutter can actually be a very exciting process once you understand what clutter does to your life.

Clutter is low, stagnant and confusing energy that drains energy from you. Depending on the feng shui area of your home where your clutter is located, it can also negatively influence, or even completely block, the flow of events in specific areas of your life.

The reason most people avoid clearing the clutter is not because it takes effort and it can be time consuming. The real reason is the fact that clutter clearing is a very emotional process that feels like therapy, and it takes emotional stamina to go through it.

The good news, though, is that once you clear most of your clutter with feng shui and have a clear system to avoid its accumulation in the future; you will start experiencing high energy levels, more clarity and a heightened sense of well-being.

Wouldn’t you agree this is definitely worth the hard work and the extra effort it takes to apply feng shui to clear your clutter?

Areas I would recommend you start to clear your clutter with feng shui and always keep fresh and clean are the following:

  • The bedroom. We are most influenced by things, events and people that are closest to us, so it is absolutely logical (and highly advisable) to first start applying feng shui to clear the clutter in your bedroom.
    • Clear the clutter under the bed.
    • Thoroughly de-clutter and clean your closets. Let go of as many items as possible that you have not used in a long time.
    • Take out all the items that create visual (and energetic) clutter and do not really belong in the bedroom. This includes the TV, any exercise equipment, office/work related items, storage items, etc etc.
  • The kitchen. In feng shui, the state of your kitchenis the state of your health, especially the state of your liver. Liver is the main detoxifying organ in the body. So do your liver and your health a favor and clean up and de-clutter that kitchen!
    • De-clutter the refrigerator.
    • Clean the stove and all the pots and pans.
    • Let go of all harsh chemical cleaners from the kitchen and go for natural ones.
    • Clean out all the drawers, surfaces, light fixtures, etc.
  • The main entrance. Your main entrance is the way your house gets its energy nourishment and in feng shui it is called the mouth of Chi, or energy. Upon the entrance to every space your energy is looking for grounding and focus, so do treat your senses respectfully and provide for a visual relief.
    • Let go of any objects in your main door area that are not really needed there, such as the recycle bins in full view, old unused pots, etc etc.
    • Find a way to deal with all the incoming mail so that it does not overflood the space. A small drawer in the closet may be a solution if the space is limited in the entryway area.
    • Keep only the in-season items in your main entry closet.
    • Bring a sense of beauty to your main entry, as in feng shui its state determines the quality of Chi, or energy, that comes into your house.

Focus on these three areas, as they are most strongly connected to your health and well-being. Clarify, Purify and Let Go. Create a fresh pathway for strong vibrant Chi to flow into your Home and nourish your energy.
