Before you can Feng Shui your home or work place you need to rid yourself of clutter. There is no point implementing remedies if you have clutter, as it will reduce the effective flow of energy.

If you look up the dictionary for the word “clutter” the words referred to are disorder and confusion. This is symbolic of what you may be experiencing in life. In different areas of your home you may have clutter that may refer to the way you are feeling in a specific area of your life. Your home is a reflection of you and clutter can block the energy flowing effectively through the home and therefore can affect opportunities available to you.

Start with a drawer, once you do it you will feel great. Anything that you look at that you do not like or conjures up a negative feeling either throw it out or give it to a charitable organisation. An example of this is a present or gift you may have received from someone you don’t like and every time you see this item you have negative feelingsā€¦ what is the point of holding onto it? You must surround yourself with positive energy and that means surrounding yourself with items that mean something positive to you and make you feel good.

I make a point of de-cluttering every 6 months. Once I get started it’s hard to stop because you feel a load lifted off your shoulders. If you want to keep things, get organised. Put them in a cupboard so they are neat and you know where everything is. You will feel a lot more in control of your life and you will more than likely find new opportunities presenting themselves to you!

In short, if you don’t like it or haven’t used it for a long time, get rid of it!
