What can we do with closets, you may ask? You can do a lot of great things with them, so read and learn.
First, I would de-clutter. I know, you knew I was going to say that. It’s true…anything that hasn’t fit you or that you may not like any longer, it is time to give to friends, family or a charity. The Lupus Foundation (Lupus.org) will pick up your clothing from your home and use the money for research. You can arrange the pickup date on line, so how easy is that? Keep the clothes you like, want and fit into and start from there.
Everything should immediately be taken off of the top shelf. We usually throw junk up there that is rarely used. Because the closet’s top shelf in Feng Shui represents your future, you want it clean, clutter free and filled with your business cards, marketing tools, money and anything else you may wish to attract in your future. You can always add specific colors and items from the specific gua that you are trying to enhance, i.e., the wealth area, partnership area or health, etc.
If it is the wealth area, be sure to place red envelopes filled with money in the future area of your closet. If you want a new job, put job offers, job listings, or anything that would represent a new position for you up on the top shelf. Yes, you may store things up there too, but give your desired enhancement a chance to work by giving it lots of room to grow. Use purple, green and blue in this area.
If it is in the partnership area, put things that remind you of the two of you: photos, remembrances, movie tickets, souvenirs, etc. Be sure to also put items in pairs. Pairs, of course, represent couples. Place the color pink in the upper part of your closet for the partnership gua.
For health issues, be sure the area if well illuminated and painted in a bright or pastel yellow (or earth tone) and place things that remind you of good health in that area, such as a good blood work report, a picture of you when you were very healthy and happy, a picture of you on vacation hiking or jogging, a health magazine or book, etc. Be creative and I know you will find tons of things to remind you of good health.
The middle of the closet or where you hang your clothes, represents your present. This area should be well organized and clutter free. Remove clothes that do not fit you or that are outdated. If you do not, you will have situations that don’t fit in with your lifestyle or hopes. The same is true for outdated garments…your ideas may be outdated for this time in your life and you will be overlooked for some important position, or perhaps even for an opportunity that you were waiting for because of “something” that is outdated or out of style.
The bottom of the closet is the past, so to be safe, place items here if you just do not know where else to place them. The past can’t hurt you. It’s done. No more negative energy can stick to a completed task or project. Again, this area should be organized and clutter free and filled with wonderful photographs or memories of your past. If you do not wish your past (ex-spouse or partner, ex-job, etc.) to follow you into the present, you should keep those items in large Rubbermaid tubs and seal them so they are safe from infecting your present. Also, if old wedding albums of an ex or old invitations to your wedding (which did not work out) are stored in the top of your closets, you will never be free of the negative energy of that relationship, and will continuously attract that same energy into current relationships, etc. You no longer need that energy around you so get rid of stuff that you just don’t need to be reminded of any longer.
These are just a few ways to help you arrange your life by organizing your past, present and future areas in all of your closets in your home and office, thereby attracting appropriate energies to help you achieve the goals you want and desire.
