The ancient Chinese art of Feng Shui works with energy, or chi, to improve the flow of positive energy in your home or workplace. Clearing clutter is the first step towards having good Feng Shui. Clutter has a negative impact on your space, blocking the flow of chi. It can drain you of energy, keep you stuck in the past, and make you feel uncomfortable.
Clutter creates a drain on your energy and causes confusion. It drags you down, and the longer you have clutter, the more it affects you. The more stuff you own, the more space and time it takes from you to take care of it: fixing things, repairing them, moving them, insuring, and storing them… even things that are hidden in closet.
The less you own, the less things weigh on you – physically, mentally and emotionally. Decluttering things helps you lighten your load, making you feel lighter in body, mind, and spirit.
“Prior to the re-design, my office was a cluttered, disorganized mess that really said nothing about who I am. I tended to use it as a catch-all for things I didn’t know what to do with. Now it’s well-organized, bright and seems to flow in the way it’s laid out. I love it!”
– Mary Beth Hoelzer
With each thing you have, ask yourself, do I need it? Do I love it? If you don’t, let it go. Surround yourself with things you use and love to create positive feelings. It’s better to have one great thing than three mediocre things!
Life is constant change. When something comes into your life enjoy it, use it well, and when it’s time, let it go – doing it will free up time, energy, and space for the things that really matter.
