An experiment you can try

Clear Your Clutter book on table

If you live with someone who has a lot of clutter, here’s an experiment you can try that thousands of people have told me has worked for them.

Just leave your Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui book some place in your home where the person will be sure to notice it.

One woman wrote to tell me she tried this with her housemate: ‘I simply left the book out on the kitchen table for about 24 hours.The next morning he announced his intention to give away one of the three sofas and one of the four chairs which crowd the living room and by the afternoon there was a box of stuff outside the back door cued up for the trash.’

Many other people have told me this has worked like magic with their partner or spouse.

The reason it is so effective is because you don’t have to nag the person or try to persuade them. They read about how clutter can hold them back and make their own decision to do something about it.

And if there’s a specific chapter you want them to read, it works really well to slip in a bookmark at that point.

  1. Getting over the resistance is key. My friend always has a reason to keep things. Getting past that is tough. Caused a few riffs!!

  2. I have just completed a course with Marie Diamond and she talks about different areas being either beneficial or possibly “disaster” areas amd that you should never sleep in one of these areas. They are determined by the compass direction of your house and certain dates of when you moved into the house or renovated. I am wondering if a space clearing ceremony would change the energy enough so that you could use the space to sleep in. Her work seems so right on.

    1. Hi Susan

      The compass direction of a home and the date the occupants moved there or renovated is irrelevant where space clearing is concerned. The ceremony I have developed works at a much deeper level than these factors.

      1. I love the ‘put them backwards’ idea, so you know what you wore. I’m going to do that.

        Every April we do a clinhotg swap. We go to a community center that we pay like $10 to use. We lay all the clothes and such on tables. Then we go shopping! And we all bring snacks for afterwards. And everything left over get donated.
