In many homes, the single biggest feng shui problem is clutter!
Clutter is both a cause and a symptom of stale, stuck energy. It blocks the smooth flow of chi through your space, weighs you down energetically, and keeps you stuck in the past. Clutter makes it very difficult to make changes, take advantage of new opportunities, or welcome new friends and experiences into your life.
Clutter also makes it harder to keep your house clean. In feng shui terms, dirt and dust are a form of clutter because they clog up the flow of chi just as effectively as a glut of personal possessions does. If you haven’t dusted in weeks and your windows haven’t been washed since last year, that dirt and dust is affecting the chi of your entire house – and your life!
A thorough cleaning and de-cluttering of your power spots is a great way to get new energy flowing to create focus and success!
One of the most obvious ways that clutter manifests is with your health. Those people who do not regularly purge things that aren’t essential to their lives generally end up with some lung related condition. This is where the weight usually will rest. If you know someone who’s health is getting worse and whose issue is asthma, allergies or any kind of respiratory illness and you know that they hate to get rid of possessions…this is how clutter really gets your health and why it’s important to purge often or have a plan around organization.
