Feng Shui for
Children's Spaces

by Nancilee Wydra

Dear Nancilee,

I have read a few books on the subject of Feng Shui and am very interested. In fact, I have signed up for a continuing education class this fall to learn more.

I know that part of my life's difficulties is the clutter that accumulates in the house. My basement is now loaded with my mom's possessions of 50 years stuffed into boxes. Just when I thought I'd find time to start eliminating some of my own clutter, there I am with more. It is such slow going to get rid of all the junk.

Don't you agree? Things get in the way of expressing ideas and being creative. I can't seem to get past the mountains of junk and get into other interests that I would like to pursue such as writing my novel, making scrapbooks of my children's pictures and working on crafts.

I will consider sending for your tapes, etc. I imagine I would enjoy them.

Dear Sally,

Life's timing always amazes me. I just finished writing a chapter pertaining to the handling of clutter in my seventh feng shui book, Feng Shui Floorplans. Yes, there are methodical ways to tackle clutter and, yes, it does block many things. In my book, Feng Shui, and Look Before You Love there is a list of the location of clutter. This list may reveal what your clutter is concealing.

Location of Clutter 

Entrance of a home

Inside a closet 

In a kitchen

Next to a bed

On a desk

In a corner behind a door

Under a piece of furniture

In a cellar

In an attic

In a garage

All over

Could be Indicating

Fear of relationships

Unwilling to examine emotions

Resenting or overwhelmed with caretaking

Desire for change or escape

Frustration, fear of letting go or need to control

 Detachment from others

 Appearances are important


 Lives in the past

 Unable to actualize self

 Angry and filled with self-loathing

In the meantime, start the clean-up using an egg timer. Set aside the best time of day for this project. You must be consistent. Morning or night set the timer and begin sorting and deciding what to keep and what to toss. When the timer goes off ABSOLUTELY STOP EVEN IF YOU WANT TO GO ON! Do this for 100 days and see your life change.

Write and let me know how.
