Organisation is a beautiful thing. Organised spaces brings us a sense of peace and harmony. What we need to understand in order to revitalise and organise our lives is that organised people are not born organised people. They have to cultivate healthy habits, which then help them to stay organised and live better. Being organised helps you to attract more prosperity in your life, to enhance your reputation, have better relationships, and unleash your creative flow. Your environment needs to be in alignment with who you are, and what you want to achieve in life. Your home has an energy and it needs to be in harmony with the people that lives in it. If you live in a mess, you may end up feeling scattered and frustrated. To apply the Feng Shui techniques and achieve organisation outside, you also have to do something on the inside, because our homes are a mirror of what's happening inside us. Begin the organisation process by clarifying your priorities, and deciding how you want things to be arranged. Try writing down everything: shopping lists for groceries, holiday gifts, home decor, and important dates. Clear out your clutter, get rid of everything you do not love in your house, and also carefully consider what you bring in. Remember that everything has energy, everything that exists on the planet is a form of energy, and you need to place things in the house in order to let the energy flow freely through your home.
Sometimes disorganisation hides an underlying problem. Messy people often have difficulty making decisions, clutter can make you feel out of control in your life. That’s because your clutter is in control, and you’re not. You can put yourself in the driver’s seat of your life by organising your home. When there is harmony where you live, all feelings and emotions within the space is harmonious. Open the windows often, allow as much natural light as possible into your home. Remember that by decluttering your home, you push away bad energy and make space for new energy to enter. Bad energy can be created simply by dead insects, old newspapers and magazines, and junk accumulated over time. Make a master to do list in order to get organised. Start as soon as possible, the longer you wait to do something, the more difficult it will be to get it done. Dump the contents of your brain on paper:
Create a meal plan for the week, do a load of basic laundry. Be patient, you’re certainly not going to get everything sorted in 24 hrs, but try looking over your list and find a few quick things that you can take care of each day. Crossing a few things off your list will help you gain motivation for tackling a few more. Keep in mind that clutter can be physical, emotional, or spiritual, and dealing with the physical clutter first can make way for a better emotional and spiritual life. Blocked energy vibrations have a negative effect on our mental health. Caring for your home will not only help you feel better, it will help you interact more positively with others. When you feel like you need more space to breathe, changing the surroundings from time to time is the best way to make you feel better. If you can’t find anything, are always late for appointments, don’t have supplies when you need them, make money but never seem to have any, feel anxious at home for no reason, Feng Shui can help you to clear up the disorder so you will feel grounded and peaceful.
