What is space clearing or Feng Shui?

Feng Shui is the practice of arranging pieces in spaces to create balance, prosperity and harmony.

The traditional Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese art of creating balance and harmony by arranging objects in an environment. Feng Shui was initially practiced in China, but in the past few decades, it has slowly gained popularity as a way to create peace and prosperity. Feng Shui has roots in early Taoism, from the belief in a life force or chi that inhabits everything in our world. The practice of Feng Shui is about balancing the five elements ’energy – earth, water, fire, wind, and wood – the energy in any space or environment. It can create a good energy flow and positive chi in your home.

The action of eliminating negative or stagnant energy is called Space Clearing. It is a part of contemporary Feng Shui that involves several steps to remove stagnant energy from your home. According to ancient spiritual traditions backed by science, we are more than our physical bodies. We’re energetic beings and the energy can affect us in a space and influence the energy in our home.

Space clearing has three main steps:

  • decluttering
  • cleaning
  • energetically clearing
