Many readers have written to tell me that when they got to Chapter Five of my Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui book – the one about preparing for space clearing by clearing clutter – that’s where the bookmark stayed. Which is why I wrote my second book, Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui, to help them get past this and get on with doing the ceremony.
So for any of you out there who are still clutter clearing to get your home ready to space clear, here are a few words of advice that it would perhaps have been helpful of me to explain years ago.
While there’s no denying you’ll get a better result if you clutter clear before doing space clearing, if you find yourself unable to get going with clutter clearing or unable to complete it, then skip it and do the space clearing, just as your home is, no matter how untidy or cluttered. The ceremony works best if it’s done with a specific focus in mind, so make clutter clearing the focus of this one because until you clear your clutter, you really can’t move forward in life anyway.
The fact is that space clearing is the most effective way I know of loosening the stuck energy that accumulates around clutter, so doing it will enable you to re-engage clutter clearing afterwards with renewed enthusiasm and gusto.
You’ll probably find, as most people do, that after ousting your junk and reclaiming your space you will want to do the space clearing ceremony again, this time with the focus on you rather than your junk. So this is yet another example of how clutter makes everything harder work. You’ll be space clearing twice instead of once. But hey, at least your life will be moving forward again, and that’s what counts.
