And we are notorious for throwing things downstairs when we don't know what to do with them; I think its human nature , Which kinds of Lights Emit Dangerous Rays? that out of sight is out of mind. But since we are incorporating some of the basic principles of Feng Shui , From Brass to Tin: How to Care for Your Antique Metals into your cleaning, mindfulness is very important as well as keeping your intentions clear.

First things first. Spring , Five Quick and Cheap Ways to Decorate for Fall cleaning is more then just dusting off those cobwebs and vacuuming the blinds. When you are doing these chores and many others, be sure to infuse them with your energy , A Guide to Feng Shui in the Home Office and your best intentions for what you'd like to create in your life.

Send up the best intentions and they will come back to you.

While you are clearing your clutter keep in mind how we define clutter. A little pre-organization here is an excellent idea so you don't linger too long over items. We define clutter as things you don't need, don't use or don't love. They are NOT things we "might"Ā¯ need one day or wear sometime in the future, even if you haven't worn that item in over a year. Just getting a few boxes and labeling them will help you first decide what you'd like to donate. This should give you a good feeling as well as lightening your load. There are people out there that can really use the items you no longer wear, need, want or love. Give them away to a good organization and know someone will get them for a song and be thrilled!

What about the items that you have that may be worth some money? You no longer use them but you may be on a budget and could use some extra income. You could have a garage , Antique Oriental Rugs: 8 Tips On How To Collect sale, post them on Ebay (or have Ebay post them for you now and let them do all the work) or go to a wonderful, free site called "Buy, Sell, Give it Away."Ā¯ There you can post your items for free and negotiate a price with someone who is interested. While clearing out remember that by doing this it opens up the space and allows the NEW to come into your life.

Then there are those few things you may be just stuck on and not sure what to do with. A box for just these items should be set aside so you can decide later, one item at a time. Giving away something or selling it and having regrets later is not what we want to achieve so take your time over these things but set a date by which time you will have decided exactly what you want to do with them and then stick to it!

If you are not familiar with the five elements, here's a crash course. You want to keep a combination of the elements in your surrounding and it is something to be mindful of.

The five elements are ruled by planets , Silk Bamboo Trees and they are Earth , Antique Oriental Rugs: 8 Tips On How To Collect (Saturn), Water , California King Bedding Cannot Be Interchanged With Standard King Bedding (Mercury), Metal , Indoor Wall Fountains (Venus), Wood , Dining Chair Slipcovers - A Great Way to Impress Your Dinner Guests!

Chances are that you will already own items that cover each of these and changing them around will likely help you. Without getting too technical (where is where many people get confused with Feng Shui), first just look for a balance of the elements. Do the same as you walk through each room , Posh Pool Table Covers - The Latest Trend in Customized Decor in your home. , Purchasing Framed Art For Your or Office - a Novel Way to Decorate Do you have something that already represents the elements you may find lacking?

Water , Ideas for Decorating the Baby Nursery Walls (and movement) can be created by a small fountain (another favorite item most of use use), not only for the water , Decorating Ideas For Kids Room element but with the intention of getting a stagnant area moving again.

When your energy , Interior Painting Ideas Guaranteed to Bring Your Walls Back to Life! starts to change , Dining Chair Slipcovers – A Great Way to Impress Your Dinner Guests! in that area and you'd like to keep it stable, move the fountain and weigh down (a paperweight works well for this) the area that has stabilized so it doesn't keep changing now that you have it where you want it.

Finally, for the brave, get a copy of the Bagua and see if you can figure it out. Think of it as a layout or blueprint of your home. , A Guide to Feng Shui in the Office With the exception of mirrors which have behind them both cures as well as distracting influences, there is nothing you can change , Details of Fake Antique Furniture that you can't change , What You Should Know Aboout Ventless Fireplaces back if it doesn't "feel"Ā¯ right to you.

Finally, doing simple things like hanging a crystal next to where you work can increase your clarity. Add more plants , Which kinds of Lights Emit Dangerous Rays? to your home , Luxury Condos Haute Couture's Newest Muse if possible and open up those blinds to let the outside , Decorate Yourself Happy: How to Decorate For Everyday Pleasure/Joy in.

For more specific help you might want to call , Wood Baker’s Rack - Add Style to Your Kitchen a consultant and see if they will answer a question or two for you. And if you get really stuck and would like a consultation, speak to a few people and don't be afraid to ask questions.
