Clutter clearing is one of the preparatory steps for space clearing. However, if your clutter keeps you too stuck to get started, it’s possible to do space clearing first instead.
In Chapter Five of my Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui book, I explain how much better space clearing works if you do clutter clearing first. For some, that was where the bookmark stayed while they attempted to do this, and that’s why I wrote my second book, Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui.
While there’s no denying you’ll get a much deeper 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 my best advice is to skip it and do the space clearing anyway, just as your home is, no matter how untidy or cluttered.
The reason is that space clearing is the most effective way I know of clearing the stuck energy that accumulates around clutter to make it easier to clear. The ceremony works best if it’s done with a specific intention in mind, so for this first one you do, make clutter clearing itself your primary focus.
After ousting your junk and reclaiming your space you will need 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.
