Which is why I was super-excited when Cathryn Hallandal contacted me about a guest blog post. Cathryn offers Feng Shui, Numerology & Colour Consultations via her business - 'In The Swing of Things'.
How clutter affects us and the flow of energy in our homes
lives and can cause energy blockages which can affect many areas of our lives.
Below are just a few areas of the home to watch out for and ensure
they are clutter free:
The front door is where the chi or energy enters your home.
Can you easily find your front door and is the area clutter free? Or do you have items such as shoes, sporting equipment, gardening tools, etc that have found their way to the front verandah and never left?
The front door of your home needs to be kept free of junk and clutter as it allows the chi (energy) to come into your home and is where the opportunities enter our homes.
The bedroom is all about your identity so it is important to get your bedroom right.
Make sure underneath your bed is not used as a storage place for those unwanted items as this can block the energy around you whilst you sleep and cause sleeping problems.
Don’t have your shoes just thrown in a pile in the corner of the room or in the wardrobe. Shoes are about walking to the future. Messy shoes indicate no sense of direction and shoes placed facing into the wall send out a message of walking into a wall or obstacles. You should always store your shoes neat and tidy facing away from the wall.
The kitchen is where you manifest your luck and so, should be kept clean, organised and tidy. Make sure you regularly clean out the fridge and pantry and throw out those out of date or unused items to stop stagnation.
Give the oven and stove top a thorough clean on a regular basis.
The fridge is a great place to manifest what you would like to attract into your life. Ensure your fridge door is not covered in bills, telephone numbers of doctors, plumbers etc because this is sending out a message to the Universe asking to be delivered more bills, plumbers visits etc. Try removing all of these types of items and replace them with pictures of what you would like to attract into your life and see what magic happens.
The garage is not a place to move all the clutter and unwanted items to from the house. A messy garage can be a sign of holding onto past emotions and being unable to move forward.
Ensure your garage is tidy and well organised and that all unwanted items have been thrown out or sold so you don’t become stuck in the past.
Make sure you keep the toilet seat down and keep the bathroom door shut to stop energy going down the drain.
The bathroom is for cleansing and should be minimalistic with just the essentials in your bathroom and toilet.
Some awesome tips...who is running to their wardrobe now and turning all of their shoes around?? (I have to admit this is one of the first things I did!!)
