Is it Important to Feng Shui My Attic?

Question: I read decluttering your home is an important step in the Feng Shui-ing process. I wanted to know, should I also declutter my attic? 

Answer: Yes. When assessing a home with Feng Shui, consultants take into consideration the compass directions, date of birth, the five elements and/or Ba-gua map life sections. In the practice of Feng Shui, objects of past and current ownership carry a positive or negative energetic charge. Or in other words, Psychologists refer to this as "emotional memories." 

Objects displayed throughout your home and stored in the closets, attic and basement could disclose a greater effect on your conscious, unconscious minds and emotions.  In general, it's best to start Feng Shui-ing the attic by decluttering. After the those changes have been made, it makes it easier to decide the function of use with the attic. That will help indicate what additional Feng Shui cures are best to implement. For each person, this will vary and at that point it would be best to consult with your local Feng Shui Expert.

Any reason to declutter your home (and life!) is good.

It looks like an attic to me, Laura. . .tsk, tsk!  But, you're right!  Even attics need some work when marketing a home.

Good morning Laura.  Our attic is neat and everything in its place.  My wife is a very organized person in some respects, others not so much

I don't have an attic and never have had one... so one less thing to worry about, Laura. But I totally see your point about why it would be a good idea to geng shui the space.

Hi Laura, there's nothing in my attic, that's a good thing. Same rule should apply to our garages. Less is more!

We were in our attic this past weekend to get out the Christmas Decorations. I swept the floor and cleaned/decluttered some.

I have to agree with you. I wouldn't like all of that mess hanging over my head.
