CLUTTER! Biggest feng shui no-no of ALL!
Here’s a peek at last night’s lecture on de-cluttering and organization:
The following lists are inspired and/or borrowed by Karen Kingston‘s book, Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui, because why reinvent the wheel? — this book is GOOD.
WHAT IS CLUTTER?
Things you do not use or love.
Things that are untidy or disorganized.
Too many things in too small a space.
4. Anything unfinished.
WAYS CLUTTER CAN AFFECT YOU:
Make you tired and lethargic
Fear of living your true path
Fear of letting good things in your life
Can affect the way people treat you – respect
Can make you procrastinate
Can make you feel ashamed
Can put your life on hold
Can make you more disorganized
Be a fire/health hazard
Having clutter can dull your sensitivity and enjoyment of life
Create undesirable symbology
Can cost you financially
Can distract you from important things – does your stuff own you?
Lack mentality- make you poorer
Stuck in your woundology – identifying with a sad part of your life
WAYS TO DEAL WITH CLUTTER:
1. Get rid of it. No really. JUST GET RID OF IT.
2. Organize it. (From Sharon Stasney: Decide if the item is Priority 1 — needs to be accessible easily and often; Priority 2 — still needs to be accessible but not, say, on the countertop; Priority 3 — doesn’t have to be readily accessible — can be in more of a storage type space. Then give the item a “home” accordingly!)
Again, it’s just a peek, but hopefully an inspiring one. Now get to it!
