Feng Shui your Bags and Briefcase

Feng shui your bags and briefcases, and feel a sense of freedom and satisfaction. Do you have to rummage around in them, or take things out of them, to find the one thing you want?

If you’d like an energy buzz, a mental workout, feel liberated, breathe better and get a sense of overall well-being, then tip out the contents of your bags. Please read the next paragraphs before attacking the contents, so that you are focused, and motivated about why …

Feng Shui and Clutter Clearing. Distance Learning Course

First Easy Step in Clutter Clearing

Clutter clearing needs a few big first efforts to start moving things out and soon you’ll get that buzz of energy that gives you a sense of freedom and wellbeing. And after a while, it will become addictive, but what a wonderful, liberating addiction! Clutter can weigh you down and stop you from moving forward. Everything has an energy field around it, and the energy around clutter is like gluey cobwebs that stick to you as you pass nearby. Clutter can make you feel lethargic and dispiritied, and overwhelmed at the thought of ever being able to do anything about it. …

Space Clear The Bad Energy | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Space Clear The Bad Energy

Whatever happens in a room or home is absorbed by the walls, floor, ceiling, furniture, objects, plants and everything else in it. If previous occupants had problems, such as financial, divorce, illness, disharmony, or the business suffered, the negative energies created by the thoughts, feelings and behaviour of the occupants remain in the space or object and can affect future occupants and businesses. Repetitive patterns, moods and atmospheres get deeply imprinted in the very fabric of a building and swirl around in the surrounding space, possibly causing similar problems for future occupants. If your home or a room makes you feel depressed or strange in any way, you …

Feng Shui & Clutter Clearing Work Together | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Feng Shui & Clutter Clearing Work Together

Feng Shui struggles around clutter. Feng Shui wants to move you forward. Clutter holds you back. Its stale energy lingers in the atmosphere. Absorbing it is bad for you. Energy levels, decision-making and health can all suffer. It can make you feel ‘stuck’ and going nowhere in your life. In Feng Shui, the floor plan of your home is divided up into eight compass sectors, and each of these relates to an area of your life. Clutter in SouthWest (your Relationships sector) can stifle relationships, stop them moving forward or create relationship problems. In East (the Health sector) clutter can influence congestive health problems like chest infection, …

Declutter Your Website

We all want to drive visitors to our website, but is the website appealing enough for them to stay around and explore? Is our content interesting or engaging enough, or is there just too much of it, or too much waffle? If you’re lacking visitors, or they visit but don’t convert, and bounce rates are high, it could be time for a website de-clutter. Think about the website like your home. You clean up for your visitors. You make them feel comfortable and interested in you and your home. You don’t bombard them with loud music or flashing lights, or shove …

Clutter Workout For Desk & Mind | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Clutter Workout for Desk and Mind

Spend 4 minutes clutter-clearing your desk at the end of each day, and you will start the next day feeling focused, energised and organised, and will probably be more productive. Spend another 1 minute writing a To-Do list and put a tick by the priorities, and you will have a tidy, organised mind as well as a clear desk. Being faced with a messy desk first thing in the morning can sap your energy and lower your morale and motivation, and it can also mess-up your thinking. Before you get to the daily 5-minute desk and mind workout, you will …

Clutter Can Harm Your Health

Clutter creates stuck, congested energy which, apart from clogging up the atmosphere around you, can steal your personal vitality and harm your health. It can manifest in your body as physical illnesses that stick around, such as congestive disorders like constipation, colds or chest infections. It can influence compression issues like weight gain or abdominal fat. It can also make your relationships or life stick, and stop them from moving ahead. All this compromises your mental and emotional health, which may cause you anxiety, worry and low self-esteem. So all in all, clutter can gradually take over your health and …

Check What Your Mirror Reflects | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Check What Your Mirror Reflects

Check what your mirror reflects. Look into it from all angles. A mirror symbolically doubles what it reflects. If it’s clutter, the mirror increases the clutter and the denseness of the stuck chi which permeates it. If it’s a table with a pile of bills on top, the mirror doubles the bills and any stress you may have about paying them. Move the mirror to reflect something pleasant which will increase healthy chi and lift your mood.

Computer Health | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant | Oxford & Portugal

Computer Health

Computer health doesn’t just mean virus-free. It also means clutter-free. Energy gets stuck inside computers, as well as in homes and workplaces. It can influence writer’s block and feeling stuck in a rut. How often do we stare at our computers wondering what to do next? Stuck energy! Technology has gone crazy, I said, when I first heard about computer viruses. I stared at my very first computer, a birthday present that promised to transform my life. Way back then a virus meant a cold, flu or other illness. But this was a lump of metal and plastic! Even so, I …

Stuck to Free With Clutter Clearing | Brenda Martin | Feng Shui Consultant

Stuck To Free With Clutter Clearing

Let’s declutter your life, I said to Jan. She had chronic fatigue syndrome and food insensitivies, and her life was not moving at all. She was stuck like glue to inertia, lack of motivation and low morale. She was my feng shui client, and definitely the Queen of Clutter, with whole rooms in her house packed to overflowing with anything you can think of, as well as all her walls decorated with bits of paper, postcards, photos, telephone numbers and reminders. Even her cooker hob was a fall-out zone for bits of paper. Jan had many hobbies and interests, with hoards …
