I like things to be streamlined and organized in my home – not too much decor, knick knacks, and the like. It feels good when items are put in place and you know where to get them and place them back. That feeling is the flow of energy, or qi (chi), as stated in Feng Shui. It seems like keeping things in order should be easy and by golly it sneaks up and catches me – piles of clothes waiting to be put up, dirty dishes in sink, and general items sitting out with no “home”. Sometimes it’s just about getting caught up on these things and other times it’s the head junk that gets in the way. I don’t like putting up laundry. There isn’t a good place for this. I’ll do that later… and later… and later.
I know that clutter in the home creates energetic blocks – within our home itself, our minds, and overall personal energy. I experience it and as per the website www.wofs.com and their article Key Design Ideas To Improve Your Lifestyle :
By clearing your space, you allow your home to breathe and create this vital circulation space…thereby creating a sense of freedom and sensation to grow, allowing you to achieve your goals.
So how do we fung shui our thoughts along with our home? I’m happy to share mine:) As I merrily unpacked right away from a recent trip (something I normally resist and put off), I realized my state of mind was different. I was choosing to restore my space and it felt great. aaHa! The word chore has a whole new meaning for me now. Look at how this word breaks up into two components perfectly.
“cho” = Choice “res” = Restore
My chores are now choices to restore! I feng shui’d my mind a little bit and now my house a lot more.
I am by no means a feng shui expert. My approach in the past has been a book sitting in my living room in hopes that my house would absorb the knowledge by osmosis. Share your feng shui tips with us or ways in which de-cluttering and organizing work for you!
