Spring Cleaning Feng Shui Style

9 Simple Feng Shui Spring Cleaning Tips
1. The Attitude is Gratitude. Be grateful. Gratitude is the best and fastest way to achieve your goals. It’s important to note the good in any situation. Observing a grateful outlook helps you move forward towards dreams and goals.   

2. Adopt an open door policy. Keep the “ming tang” clear of belongings and leave a generous (6’) clearance on both the outside and the inside to ensure that the energy can flow freely to benefit all of the occupants. 
3. Improve the chi/energy of your home with regular thorough cleaning. It helps to raise the vibration, allowing you to more easily achieve your goals.  
4. Give it away. Donate unused items to the charity of your choice. Your home should reflect who you are and what you want. By clearing unused clutter you will be improving the energy in your home, plus you’ll be donating to a good cause. 
5.  Let the sunshine in. Make sure your home is bright, airy, and well ventilated. Open windows and let natural light in to raise the energy level throughout your home.
