Tips: Clear your Clutter!

Clutter is a big issue in our lives today. It seems that we can't get enough of our stuff! 
From a Feng Shui perspective this can cause many problems. For example let's say that you are looking for love or a serious relationship but you have tons of clutter in the South West (marriage and love sector) of your home. This means that the energy will be blocked and the flow will be broken. This may translate into an inability to establish a relationship with someone or even meet someone. Remove the clutter and you will free up the energy and the flow will be re-established increasing your chances of finding someone.  

That is just one way that clutter can cause you problems there are many others!

I have spent a lot of time in the recent weeks helping people free themselves from their clutter and I have received a lot of very positive feedback. A week ago I helped out my friend Yasmin who was moving into her new home and she blogged about her experience with me. See Yasmin's blog post here . 

There is also a wonderful book called "Clear your Clutter with Feng Shui" by Karen Kingston which I highly recommend. Inside this book you will find her clutter test. It is quite easy to do. You simply estimate the amount of clutter per room and then divide the total by the amount of rooms like this:

Entry            5%
Living room  10%
Kitchen        15%
Bathroom     15%
Dining room  0%
Bedroom 1    20%
Bedroom 2    15%
Bedroom 3    25% (kid's room)
Basement      40%
       Total    145%  divided by 9 rooms = 16% of your mortgage or rent is being used to house your clutter!

You should also keep in mind that the above example is not the usual. Most people have quite a bit more clutter than that!! So now I suggest you do your own clutter test and see what you come up with!! 

Happy de-cluttering!!
