Make space for the new!

Surrounding yourself with clutter can weigh you down, and even worse, it can act as a barrier, making it difficult for new people and opportunities to enter your life. Here are a few pointers to get you started:

*Your home’s entrance should receive special attention as it represents both your approach to life as you walk out, and your impression as you walk in. Keep it as clean, beautiful and clutter free as possible .

*The same goes for furniture that looks bad or that you never use. Ditch it, sell it or give it away; consider getting rid of objects that conjure up sad or unpleasant memories, too. If you’re not sure about heirlooms or valuable items, pack them away in a labeled storage box and reassess after a year.

*Unhealthy plants should be given some special TLC in the garden or completely removed from your home. While you’re at it, toss any dried flowers and ditch cracked or rusty pots. Dying plants are a negative influence, so don’t put it off!

*Stray paperwork should be collected together and collated. If you don’t already have one, buy a filing cabinet or try an expander file. Alternately, create a ring binder especially for bills, or set up an in/out-tray near your computer. You’ll feel organised in no time!

*Books, magazines and DVDs that you’re unlikely to read or watch again should be given away. Clear some space for fresh stories to enter your life.

*Wooden furniture can exude a strong psychic resonance, so if Aunt Olive’s oak wardrobe doesn’t hold fond memories, consider selling it or move it into the spare room. At the very least, give it a good cleansing with sage. Your bedroom should be your sacred space.

*Clothes that don’t fit or haven’t been worn for a couple of years should be donated to charity, sold or given away. If you’re not sure, pack them into a box. If you don’t open the box within a year, donate it.

*Artwork that makes you feel sad should be sold, or if you can’t bear to part with it, moved to an out-of-the-way room. Seeing a sad, ugly or lonely scene every day will eventually rub off on your psyche. If you want to invite joy in your life, opt for feelgood artwork.

What is space clearing?

‘Space clearing’ can be likened to spring cleaning your home on an unseen, energetic level. As negative vibes – from previous occupants, arguments or illnesses – are cleared, you should feel a fresh sense of energy and enthusiasm. After a clearing, objects may seem to sparkle or colours will appear to be brighter. Best of all, this energetic lift should reflect onto you and your family.

When are space clearings beneficial?
After moving into a new home
When you feel ‘stuck’ or need a lift
If the atmosphere doesn’t feel right
When the feel of past occupants is strong
After a death or run of illness
If nightmares are getting you down

What’s involved?
Space Clearing involves some preparation both at your end and mine, with the actual clearing taking roughly 2 hours. Before any space clearing, a thorough clearout is recommended. Hanging onto clutter  can not only trap you in the past, it can block fresh opportunities from entering your life. Various rituals and procedures are involved, including a protective four corner blessing.
Jenny conducts seminars, space clearings and feng shui consultations in the Sydney and Gold Coast areas.
