I have always been fascinated by the process of creating what we desire into physical form. And my work with others often involves assisting them to do just that. It may be assisting someone in finding a new love or new job, increase financial prosperity or improve well-being. My specialty involves not only personal explorations with clients, but also a physical examination of their personal spaces. Nine times out of ten, clutter in the home (or work space) is at play. The bottom line is clutter creates stuck energy.
It is a rare situation when stuck energy doesn’t translate back to one’s life experiences. Clutter can contribute to procrastination, the inability to move forward, carrying excess weight, stress, overwhelm, and lack of clear seeing. Clutter can dull the senses and contribute to ill health. In feng shui, clutter has an expanded definition. It is:
- Visual disarray
- Things that need attention or need to be repaired
- Too much stuff for the size space
- Things you don’t use
- Things you don’t love
The impact of clutter can translate back to your life even if you can’t see it or try to hide it. Clutter can exist in drawers, cupboards, closets, files, basements, garages, and attics.
If you are working on making any kind of change in your life, I encourage you to address your clutter. Your feng shui changes will not be very effective unless clutter is addressed. Take it slow and be consistent. I guarantee you will be amazed by the results.
