View your house as a metaphor for your life. Keep your house in order…your spiritual house, mental, physical and emotional. In the movie The Field of Dreams, they said “If you build it, they will come.” In Feng Shui, we say, “If you clear it, it will come.” When practicing Feng Shui, the first step to take is decluttering or detoxing your home of things and feelings that are holding you back.
Feng Shui is also about loving yourself, therefore detoxing your body and mind, putting you in a healthy and calm place is also important.
An organized home can have a calming effect on you, your family and guests. This does not have to be difficult; begin small – one area or closet at a time. In just minutes you can begin to make changes that can turn your home into a comfortable, peaceful haven.

As you begin the process of cleansing your home it is important to also detox our bodies of unhealthy practices as we go through our inner work of letting go. During this time of physical and emotional detoxing it’s important to honor and love yourself. Make an effort to get extra sleep, whether by going to bed earlier than usual or working naps into your routine. You can also support your body by eating as healthy as possible, drinking plenty of water and herbal teas, and taking vitamins. Vitamin C is especially galvanizing to the immune system. Homeopathic remedies can also aid you in assisting your body in its time of rest and recovery; talking lovingly to yourself, and your body, will also help. Beyond that, simply letting go of thinking and resting in the deep silence of your true self will create a healthier you.
As you detox and declutter your home and your mind of needless “stuff”, feel free to let go of worry and rest peacefully in the knowledge that this too shall pass, leaving you stronger, healthier, and further along in your journey. Good things happen when you let go!
