Feng Shui Mistake: Decluttering “cures” bad luck

Careful! Cleaning out the closet and dejunking the garage won’t keep you from going broke.

One of the biggest myths is that Feng Shui is simply about clearing away clutter. In fact, most of the popular pseudo-feng shui books are really just tools for decluttering and getting organized. Of course it is helpful to clear out junk, discard things you no longer use or love, and get rid of anything unfinished (and not likely to get finished). Clutter is “stuck energy” and having too much of it stuck in your house can lead to depression, put your life on hold, weigh you down, stifle creativity, and create disorganization and debilitating procrastination. And I guarantee that if you clear out clutter you will come into money, gifts, opportunities, or other good things. That’s because one of the laws of the universe is that nature abhors a vacuum and will do whatever it can to fill up that void or space. One of the fastest ways to get what you want in life is to “energetically” make space for it. Thus, clearing clutter will give you more space and it can work wonders in helping you attract what you desire.

However, authentic Feng Shui is much deeper than cleaning out your junk drawers. You can have a clean, spare and organized house yet it can still be full of unseen energies that will eventually cause miscarriages, bad health, financial setbacks, even adultery. I have seen beautiful and well organized homes with not an ounce of clutter where the occupants still feel depressed, have legal and money hassles, and are always arguing. Remember, while clearing clutter is good, the real power of Feng Shui lies in clearing negative influences and rebalancing the flow to harmonize with your specific home and your specific energetic makeup.
