“Maybe one day I will need this” clutter: you are letting your things plan your future. Keeping things just in case creates a sense of unease with your future. Don’t let your stuff dictate your what’s in store for you.
“The way we were” clutter: too much clutter from the good old days will keep your energy locked in the past.
The “must-haves”: collecting and having things in an effort to increase your standing and make yourself feel accepted. “No material object, however beautiful or valuable, can make us feel loved…” The Dalai Lama
Basement clutter: can keep you locked in the past especially if the clutter is from past relationships, jobs or locations. The basement is the foundation of your home, if your foundation is locked in the past how can you build a future?
Attic clutter: holding you back from attaining your dreams and future plans. It is like being under a giant thumb pressing you down.
Main entrance clutter: can limit opportunities in your career and personal development. The front entrance is the where the most chi enters the home – blocked chi = blocked opportunities.
Clutter behind doors: equals low energy in the room that the door leads into. The door needs to be able swing and open fully.
Cluttered hallways: too much large furniture or clutter blocks or slows chi this can represent or lead to a lack of progress in your life. Compressed or squeezed chi in the front hallway could lead to health issues and lethargy.
The junk/spare room: even though no one sleeps in this room full-time this is an example of better to be safe than sorry. Each room and section of the home is aligned with a certain aspect of your life and type of energy. This becomes clear once you learn which area of the bagua that room occupies. It could be wealth, marriage, career or any of the other nine guas.
Under the bed: clocked or blocked chi under the bed can lead to sleep and health issues. If space is an issue then try to keep only soft bedding or seasonal clothing – avoid heavy things, sharp things and definitely do not store old unwanted things there.
