Spring Feng Shui Cleaning

Decluttering is always a good idea and essential for a great Feng shui in your home. Naturally, Spring is the best time to open new energy into our lives, while the weather is gently softening, it feels easier to let go of the excess we no longer need.

You’re certainly not alone in this strange desire to clean your house, sort out your mess and empty your wardrobe. Spring cleaning has become nearly ritualized in the West and for the adepts an enjoyable process that makes you feel better and lighter!

One of the most fundamental rules of Feng Shui is that good energy cannot accumulate in a space that is cluttered with junk. If you try to perform Feng Shui in a house that is dirty or cluttered with too many objects you will not achieve results. The idea is to remove these objects or create space so that good energy can enter your home.

A great way to start decluttering is to use Marie Kondo method of lovingly connecting with belongings that “spark joy”. All items that don’t spark joy can be disposed or donated. Part of what makes Marie Kondo method unusually speedy is that instead of decluttering room by room, she tackles belongings by subject, starting with what is easiest to part with. So, all the clothes, then all the books, then documents, then miscellany and, last and most difficult, photos and sentimental items.

Instead of deciding what to get rid of, she says, the focus should be on what to keep: which few things spark sufficient joy or are truly necessary. This is a great opportunity for you to say goodbye to all the unnecessary surplus.


Ok so it all sounds so good, but you might be thinking this is a lot of work especially when you have a busy lifestyle with really few spare time. So here is few things you can start with that can be fit into anyone schedule.

Simplifying Your Wardrobe: 
Make space in your closets

Starting with your closet is the best way to reducing your wardrobe and simplifying your life. Creating space is an important concept for a minimalist lifestyle and open flow of energy in your home. Spring cleaning time gives you great opportunity to do just that and to swap your seasonal clothes in storage.

I am completely obsessed with the 10 items wardrobe concept by Jennifer L. Scott (author of Lessons from Madame Chic : 20 Stylish Secrets I Learned While Living in Paris

It always seems something very restricted to only have few quality items you use in rotation, but you will be surprised how liberating this process is. Of course, you can only introduce these ideas step by step and see how they work for you.

Here is her TEDx talk which explained how she discovered the ten-item wardrobe concept while living in Paris.

Clean, Scrub and Clear

Spring cleaning is obviously about cleaning your environment but it is also about bringing more light and more love as you clean. Think about using healthier cleaning products like baking soda, vinegar or lemons are very powerful cleaning products solution for a green home.

It is also the best time to get motivated and do your seasonal cleaning. The windows are a really important part of your Home as they symbolise your eyes to the world. You should keep them clean with vinegar and water, allowing a clear vision of life.

Time to clear your home with positive energy,  open your windows, let’s the fresh air inside! Listen to your favorite music and have fun while you clean!


Decorate with plants

You will be surprised how powerful plants can impact your life. Try to add three new vibrant green plants to refresh the energy and introduce new opportunity in your Home. You can use gorgeous succulents for year-round flowering and easy to maintained plants. Focus on your entrance to welcome new beginning in your life. In the Kitchen go for lush and aromatic herbs, such as basil, rosemary or mint. Another easy trick is to use tropical plants, cut leaves or flowers as a great energy booster.
