Tag Archive for: Clutter

In Feng Shui, clutter is considered to be anything that is unnecessary or not used regularly, and is thought to inhibit the flow of energy, or “chi,” in a space. Clutter is believed to create a sense of confusion and distraction, and can make it difficult for individuals to focus and feel at ease in their surroundings.

To improve the energy flow in a space and promote a sense of clarity and calm, it is recommended to regularly declutter and organize the space, getting rid of anything that is not needed or is not being used. This can include items such as old magazines, broken or unused items, and anything that is taking up unnecessary space.

Additionally, it is also important to ensure that items are stored in their proper place, so that they can be easily found and used when needed. This will not only improve the flow of energy in the space, but also make it easier to maintain and keep clean.

Furthermore, it’s also important to clear the pathways and make sure that there is enough room to move around freely, as this will also help the energy to circulate better. This can be done by removing anything that is blocking the doorways or walkways, and by keeping the furniture arranged in a way that allows for easy movement.

Can clutter vs. clutter become so explosive that our life stays in one place? There are different types of clutter that we place in our daily life. For example, making breakfast and leaving all the dishes in the sink. Or as simple as organized clutter (Leaving dishes in the dishwasher). What is the catch you might ask yourself? All is a cluttered space.

Arranging Clutter

We can organize clutter, but is it still clutter? The answer is yes/no.

How does clutter affect us?

Going back to the example or organized clutter, we might think this does not affect us. In reality, everything in our environment affects us. Leaving those dirty dishes in the sink or the dishwasher will affect us. How you may ask?. The answer is quite simple, you know!. When you get home and then realized you forgot to start your dishwasher, you might think consciously you forgot. But if we turn back time, when you placed the dishes in the dishwasher, you knew what you were doing. Now you have a smelly home with some food left for hours.

Find the Money area of the Bagua and see you find having more struggles in that area. Nine areas within the Bagua are affected due to clutter. Find out which area from my newsletter (Free Bagua Map explanation). The big question is why is this happening in your life as this reflects your current situation.

No Clutter

No clutter at all is the best solution. Of course, this is not always possible with small kids, two jobs, multiple activities, etc. The Band-aid solution would be to place the clutter in an area that will not affect our current situation. As a Band-aid is not forever, the clutter must be changed. Like the picture above, you can arrange your clutter, but the big question is if it is OK to have that clutter in some area within the Bagua. The answer is yes. Just like everything leaving it in a place for a long time will start affecting our energy flow. The best solution is to start the process of de-cluttering.
