Feng Shui Declutter – Your Camera Reveals the Truth of Your Space
Feng Shui Declutter tip: I learned this from an audience member after a recent Feng Shui presentation, the one thing that helps her declutter – she takes a photograph of the room.
You’ve heard the saying “The camera never lies.” Our brain edits out what we don’t want to see. But you see everything with a photo. Use this photo to take a real look at your space, whether you are Feng Shui decluttering or Feng Shui re-decorating. See what needs to be done.
My Feng Shui Photo Declutter Story
Taking a deep breath I took photos of my living room and was shocked, shocked! at what I saw:
- How did my launch pad near the front door get so cluttered?
- Find a better place for my library books.
- Recycle that stack of magazines.
- How did the tabletop get so cluttered?
- That chair is too far for easy conversation
- Review those CDs and DVDs, and let go of the ones I have outgrown.
- Is that the best place for my balance ball?
- Get a new sofa accent pillow to bring some fresh Feng Shui color energy into my living room.
Seeing my living room in this way I was able to zone-in on what I needed to do. It was much easier not getting caught in the distractions that often interrupt with Feng Shui declutter work.
So go ahead, take a photo. Upload it to your computer and look at it on your big screen.
- Make a list of what you want to do from your photos,
- print-out the photo and mark what you want to change.
- Inspire yourself to do more by taking before and after pictures.
- Take photos while you Feng Shui declutter the space to help you see what you have accomplished and motivate you to keep going.
Let the unblinking eye of the camera help you Feng Shui declutter your space and bring Feng Shui energy and calm into your home.
