Feng Shui came from the monks of ancient China. These monks believed that by placing items and buildings in certain ways or places plus utilizing certain colors, objects, symbols etc. in each room that the energy, or chi, could be better harnessed and more calm, balanced, and tranquil.
These are some ways you can create better organization in your home through the use of the ancient art of Feng Shui:
Minimize your belongings
First and foremost, to make an easier pathway towards balance, tranquility, and effective Feng Shui, you have to be able to make a pathway through your stuff. Start your cleaning, organizing and Feng Shui-ing by sorting out the things you need and don’t need any longer. Sort it into keep, donate, sell, and trash. Then get an eco-friendly Toronto junk removal company to come take your donate pile to the appropriate place for you. They can also then pick up your trash pile so you can make sure your garbage removal is taken care of in the appropriate fashion.
Keep things in good shape
You’ll naturally be more organized if everything around you is in good working order. If light bulbs are burnt out or your desk chair is broken, a picture frame is cracked, etc., you can’t really be fully organized because part of the energy of your surroundings is being sucked into broken objects. Just as you are more efficient when things are in top shape, you will be less efficient and less organized when they are in disrepair.
Make sure things are well-lit
Not just for your eyes, but good for your state of organization too. Whether it is done by you consciously or unconsciously, unlit or poorly lit corners of your home will draw clutter to them. Similar to the way a neglected and darkened corner of your mind will gather cobwebs and jumbled up thoughts and feelings, if you don’t ensure your home spaces are well-lit, you will be less likely to ensure they are operating at maximum efficiency and in top organization.
Make your bed every day
That’s right, your mom was right. Whether she meant to employ methods of Feng Shui or not, she knew that by making your bed and smoothing the wrinkles in an orderly way, it would keep you more orderly and organized as well. The rest of your bedroom should be kept neat and clean too – no laundry on the floors or on the chairs, no items that don’t belong there. By keeping the area around you tidy, the rest of your life will be better organized. By doing it first thing in the morning to start the day, the day will begin organized and be much more likely to remain so.
In Feng Shui, blue supports the opposite of being down – rather it encourages and promotes an organized life which will make you much happier, so have some blue around you in areas like your office or where you pay bills and create schedules, etc. Royal blue is said to be the best.
