Many people have the habit of storing old things even when they know they wouldn’t need this stuff in the future. It is hard for people to let go of not only material things in their house but also non- material things in their life. However Vaastu suggests that keeping old, useless things in one’s space leads to “clutter”, which has very negative consequences in life. Clutter first of all blocks the healthy flow of energy that is very harmful to the key balance. Furthermore it casts harmful effects on our mind and body.
What is Clutter?
“Clutter” is created by piling up of old, broken things which are not in use anymore. Anything remaining from the past which is of no use to us is part of clutter. Additionally anything which is a past remnant or residual from what is no more in existence and which works only in further evoking negative memories and thus causing us pain is also a part of “clutter”.
If you take a sweeping look across in your home you will find lots of junk like old clothes, boxes, bottles, newspapers, bags, shoes, cartons etc.
Each and every item in our house emits energy. Old, useless and broken items stored for indefinite period of time blocks the energy flow in and around the house. As per the Feng Shui experts, even the old wedding albums and video also form clutter.
