De-clutter and de-junk your mind
When you clear clutter you are not just clearing out old unwanted material things but you are actually de-cluttering your mind. It is only in the process of throwing out material things that we actually realized that many of them (if not all) don't actually mean anything - they themselves definitely don't bring us happiness. And the more we think about it the more we realize how much clutter we have accumulated in our lifes already. And it is only then that we realize that clearing clutter is also a mental matter. To clear out our mind we need to tune inwards. Cleansing our mind means cleansing ourselves of impurities, afflictions and negative thoughts. The process can be very painful especially with our ego constantly interfe
How to re-energize small rooms
Small rooms easily tend to become clutters, crowded and stuffed up with things. It is difficult to move in them and no one really enjoys spending any time in them. However, sometimes it is necessary to use a small room as a home office, kids or guest room. So what is the best strategy to re-energize these cramped in spaces? Make sure that at least once a month you let fresh energy circle in all your small and cramped spaces. These could be the aforementioned small room but could also be storage places and spaces underneath stairways. Any energy that circulates smoothly promotes health and positiveness. Any stale non-circulating energy is negative for your health and your spiritual and emotional being. The easiest way to promote this f

For many an antique furniture is usually attached to with memories. It is the old cupboard from my grandfather. Do you remember how grandmother used to sit at the old desk and take us through her photographs? For many others antiques are standing for a time long gone, for a more homely style that they so miss in modern furniture design. And for others yet it is a way of investing money. Whatever your reason for buying and bringing in antique furniture to your life, make sure to cleanse it of any energy it has attracted over time. Especially when the purchase comes with an unknown history. The easiest way to cleanse antique furnitures is by salt. Salt dissolves negative energy and neutralizes the harmful and negative qi (energy).
