Physical clutter: it is a show stopper! If the chi cannot freely meander throughout a space, it becomes stuck energy that can deplete the energy of its inhabitants. Think about how you feel when you walk into a clean kitchen versus a kitchen with dishes from breakfast and lunch still sitting on the counter and pots and pans left on the stove. I can feel my energy shift as I describe this scenario.
Living in a highly-cluttered environment over a long period of time can have real negative effects, which can manifest in many different ways – mentally, emotionally, physically, and/or spiritually. Even seemingly insignificant clutter can weigh you down and detract from the available energy from which to manifest your desires. Let me repeat this. Clutter interferes with manifesting our desires. I would say that is a pretty good incentive.
