As the earth renews itself each Spring, many of us (well, at least a few of us) feel the urge to heed one of the season’s age-old rituals – spring cleaning. This year, don’t think of spring cleaning as an unpleasant chore. Instead, realize that it’s an opportunity to use the principles of Feng Shui to determine what things really benefit your home and what things do not.

Most people have closets, garages, basements, drawers and attics that are bursting with things they haven’t used for years. These accumulated possessions block the energy flow in our homes, creating stagnation and causing us to experience chaos, frustration and struggle in our lives.

To enhance your home and life this season, determine what items are a true reflection of the kind of life you want to live. Work on eliminating or improving any areas that you don’t want others to see. For instance, if you’re embarrassed by the mess in your basement, get rid of items stored there that you don’t need.

When we remove things from our homes that are no longer necessary or appropriate in our lives, we gain clarity. We let go of the past when we let go of things that no longer serve use. We open the way for new opportunities to come to us in life, and allow our lives to flow better by removing obstructions.

So when you spring clean your home, think of it as clearing out old, stagnant energy and allowing new, positive energy to enter. It will become one chore you welcome with the season.
