This is a two-for-one! Rid yourself of the Energetic baggage that’s holding you back from being your vibrant Self
As you accumulate things, you also accumulate the Energy of those things. Practicing some basic Feng Shui and some light organization will help you clear the clutter in your space, refocus your Mind and mental Energies, and transmute the Energy in your home.
In our capitalistic society with free and expedited shipping and round the clock sales, it is so easy to accumulate more than you need. In fact, it’s safe to say you even accumulate things you don’t actually want – just because they are available.
What you may fail to realize is that each item you bring into your space comes with its own Energy, which then interacts with your Energy and the Energy in your space.
Where it all begins
Take, for example, the foods you eat. Even the most processed foods carry Energetic vibration based on its own lifetime.
It all starts with soil. Good soil that is fertile, hydrated, and mindfully cared for will carry a higher vibration. Any foods that are grown in that soil will look healthier, taste better, and also carry on that higher vibrational Energy.
When the farmed goods are harvested with care, cleaned, separated, processed, packaged, and shipped – all with heart and good intention – the plants continue to vibrate at a higher frequency. This high frequency Energy is then carried into the grocery store where you will shop for your goods.
At every step of the process, it is crucial for each individual who interacts with the goods to also be aligned with their work and with their products. When you pluck that bag of high vibe carrots off your market shelf, you are another cog in the Energetic lifestyle of those carrots.
They will, in turn, feed your cells with a higher, more concentrated nutrient density. They will nourish your body and Soul as you partake in their goodness. And your body will willingly accept the high Energy frequency of those carrots and raise your own vibration.
Feeling good about yourself and your Life, and in your own body, will affect everything you touch and every person you encounter. It is a domino effect that starts with growing plants in healthy, fertile soil that is cared for with love, heart, and good intention.
Along those lines, think about every item you can see in your surroundings at this moment. Where were those products made? Who are the factory workers that helped to assemble them? Were they created to help someone get rich, or because there is a genuine need to help others with these items? What were your intentions for accumulating these products? Were they things you desired? Things you had a need for? Was the money you used on credit or did it come from your paycheck, which you worked really hard for?
Each of these aspects will affect the vibrational frequency of the items you keep in your surroundings, which, in turn, will affect the Energy in your space. The Energy in your space will always be in interaction with your own Energy body.
If you consider yourself someone who cares for Self by cleansing, cultivating, and restoring healthy Energetic boundaries, then it’s time to take it one step further by looking into what you keep in close proximity.
How to move forward
So, now you look around and realize you have so much stuff that you are not attached to in any way and it is bringing down the Energy of your space. You want to clear the space and cultivate a new, Light Energy – but how? Where to start?
Develop a basic understanding of Feng Shui to help you in your space clearing.
Look at any item in your space and ask yourself whether it aligns with who you are or who you are trying to become. Consider how you feel when you are in the same space as this object, while touching or holding it. Does it bring you joy? Is it sentimental? Does it serve a purpose in your space?
Once you’ve answered these questions honestly, then you can apply the principles of Feng Shui to help you further narrow down what stays and what goes.
Feng Shui relies on the concept of Yin and Yang. Yin and Yang are polar Energies that exist in all things. They represent the feminine (yin) and masculine (yang), and their interaction influences the destinies of all things.
Yin Energy is characterized by coldness, rest, responsiveness, shadow, inwardness, interior, and downward and decreasing motion.
Yang Energy is characterized by stimulation, heat, movement, activity, vigor, illumination, exterior, upward and outward motion, and increase.
Every person, and every item in your space, is characterized by these two polar Energies. And the key to remaining in harmony in your own Life is to keep them in balance.
Because Yin and Yang Energies mutually depend on one another, they cannot be separated. Without Yin, you cannot define or identify Yang, and vice versa. Additionally, they control one another. If Yang is too excessive in any product, good, or person, then Yin will be too weak.
Yin and Yang Energies are on a spectrum where things are relative to one another. As the spectrum becomes tilted to one side or another, the Energies can either be in harmony or disharmonious.
Utilizing Feng Shui and a basic understanding of Yin and Yang Energies will help you to clear your space of any items that are creating Energetic disharmony. This disharmony can permeate you physically, emotionally, mentally, Spiritually, and of course, Energetically.
As you begin to clear your space and rid yourself of the Energetic baggage you are carrying around, you will find yourself feeling lighter. You will have a sense of openness and expanse within you that will allow you to take on your day-to-day problems with ease and confidence. Consider it the breaking free from shackles you didn’t even know you were wearing.
As time and space allows, practice Feng Shui and implement Yin and Yang principles to every space you are in: your office or cubicle, bedroom, refrigerator, freezer, pantry, hall closets, garage, attic, basement, dresser drawers, with your body care products, jewelry, accessories, handbags, shoes, or any other spaces you keep personal items.
