March 8 ~  Cleaning Clutter Clear Your Clutter With Feng Shui

"Whenever I meet people who tell me they are stuck, I know that if I visit their homes, I will almost always find lots of clutter. Clutter accumulates when energy stagnates." ~ Karen Kingston


We all have clutter in our lives.  Take time today to toss out some of the junk. Free up closet and drawer space by getting a box of clothes ready to donate to charity.

"Sort out your life by sorting out your junk," encouraged organizing consultant Karen Kingston. Clean up your office files. Follow the F-A-T system: file, act, or toss.

As the poet Alexander Pope said, "Order is heaven's first law."

Come on, you can do it. Close your eyes and dump. Get rid of those items you'll use "some day." You will feel so much better and lighter! And you may find some buried treasure, some precious "lost" heirloom, hidden under all the clutter. "Art is order," wrote Nobel Laureate Saul Bellow, "made out of the chaos of life."

In her book, Lighten Up!: Free Yourself from Clutter, consultant Michelle Passoff explained that once you tackle clutter, "Life is more effective and productive and spontaneous and creative. You have more peace of mind, and you'll be looking for the clutter rather than avoiding it."

Let go of the past. Begin with a clean slate for the future. Celebrate the possibilities!

As Albert Einstein's Three Rules of Work taught, "Number one: out of clutter, find simplicity. Number two: From discord, find harmony. And Number three: In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity."
