Clearing clutter is one of the Nine Feng Shui Principles. It is important to accomplish this prior to any significant Feng Shui session. Clutter impedes energy, Chi. It is important to change that. Clutter is more than things in a jumble.
The Oxford dictionary defines clutter as “crowded and untidy collection of things." Furthermore, clutter puts out an energy field which is unpleasant, sticky, obstructive, and unclean. These qualities enter your auric field and can create problems in your life.
Clutter is further defined as 1) things you do not want; 2) things you do not love; 3) things that are untidy or disorganized; 4) too many things in a small space; 5) anything left undone; 6) and things that have unpleasant memories.
When you have things that you love around you, you receive vibrant energy. You feel content, joyful, and strong. The energies in space flow around and nourish you. You are uplifted and have a clear focus. Contrary to having things which you love and cherish, are things which are unloved, unwanted, neglected, even hated, in your space.
Even though they may have become forgotten things to you, these objects still claim a presence, and their presence causes the energy in your house to stagnant, slow down, and even shut down. Because you are connected to everything you own, having such possessions around you can leave a negative mark upon you and what you want to accomplish.
aspects of clutter are:
