Clutter is disempowering; it saps your energy, erodes your spirit, and holds you in the past. When your prosperity power spots are filled with clutter, your financial situation may feel stuck or hopeless.
The word “clutter” comes from an Old English word, clott, which means “to cause to become blocked or obscured.” Like a blood clot that blocks circulation to a vein, clutter prevents chi from circulating through your home and life.

Here are some specific ways clutter might be affecting your life:
- Kitchen clutter blocks your sources of abundance and makes it hard to nourish yourself and others. De-cluttering your kitchen opens up space for you to receive the financial and emotional nourishment that you need in life.
- Cluttered living and dining rooms affect family and social life. This can lead to a lack of emotional support from your family, and can hinder networking and career advancement.
- Halls are the highways of your home. Clutter here creates a traffic jam that prevents connections between different areas of your life. Look at your halls to see how you feel about your life’s path: are they well lit and easily navigable, or do they trip you up? If you feel a disconnect between work and family, self and others, your needs and your obligations, it may be time to give your hallways a good clearing out.
- Closets represent things that are hidden, unknown, or unrecognized. When we fill our closets with clutter, we stifle our ability to be intuitive and insightful. Cluttered closets can indicate problems that you may not be consciously aware of but which impede your progress through life, work, and relationships nonetheless.
- Bathroom clutter can indicate a lack of attention to self that goes beyond the physical. Eliminating clutter and disorder in your bathroom and transforming it into a place of refuge will help smooth your transitions at the beginning and end of each day.
- Adults’ bedrooms should function as places of renewal for self and relationships. If you feel “wired and tired,” creating order out of chaos in this most personal space can help you to relax and let go of the stress of the day. Then you can get a good night’s sleep or enjoy some special time with your partner.
