How to introduce Feng Shui into your life

(I found these tips from Feng Shui expert Karen Kingston in a flight magazine a long while ago. After holding on to a photocopy of the article for over a decade, I am transcribing it here for future reference.).

1. Clear your clutter and your life will start moving -- clutter represents energy which is stuck.

2. Having lots of clutter makes you feel tired. Clearing it releases energy, and you will feel lighter in mind, body and spirit.

3. Your home or workplace is a mirror of you. Don't hold yourself back by hanging onto things 'just in case'. Surround yourself only with things you love from now on.

4. Clear out your junk room. Each area of your home is connected to a different aspect of your life so, wherever your junk, it will affect you. Let it go.

5. Clear out your clutter before implementing Feng Shui cures and enhancements, such as mirrors and crystals, otherwise you may double your problems rather than resolve them.

6. If something is broken, fix it -- or throw it out. Your energy levels drop when you are surrounded by things that don't work properly.

7. Clear out your wardrobe. Keep just your favorite things and in future only buy items you absolutely love. When you look good, you feel good, and your life works better.

8. Clear clutter from corridors and behind doors. Your life will proceed more smoothly when the energy can flow unobstructed around your space.

9. Clear your desk. Mountains of paperwork makes you feel defeated before you even start. A clear desk means a clear mind, better creativity and more job satisfaction.

10. Bring yourself up-to-date and stay that way. Do all those jobs nagging away at the back of your mind to be done. See your energy levels soar when you write those letters and make those outstanding calls.
