CLEAR PATHWAY TO HAPPY HOME DECLUTTER & DECORATE Janita Singh FENG SHUI Use the festive season to clear clutter and channel good energy in your home. Feng shui expert, Jenny Blume, can be contacted on phone 0411 631 940 or visit jennyblumefengshui.com AN ORGANISED home means less stress and more time for fun and festivity. By clearing clutter, you create fresh pathways for vibrant energy to flow into your home and life, says feng shui expert, Jenny Blume (pictured). She suggests using this festive season to clear clutter and make way for new opportunities. ''Hanging on to stuff can make us feel secure but, according to feng shui, it can trap us in the past and block the flow of energy within homes. ''Accumulated clut- ter can act as a barrier, making it difficult for new people and oppor- tunities to enter our lives, says Ms Blume. Decluttering may feel like a daunting task but tackle it 'drawer by drawer'. Ms Blume says start with your home's entrance. ''This should receive special atten- tion as it sets the tone for yourhome. . . keep it as attractive and clutter free as possible. ''Anything broken or rarely used should be fixed, recycled or tossed away. If you're not sure about valuable items, pack them away and reassess later.'' Wooden furniture can exude a strong psychic resonance, so if an old wardrobe doesn't hold fond memories, get rid of it or give it a good cleansing with sage smoke.'' Seen any great ideas?

When decorat- ing the Christ- mas tree, think of balancing colours. Red is fiery and energetic colour; green will help calm and soothe. When putting up the tree, encourage everyone to add something of their own as this puts something special of themselves into the festive decorations. Christmas tree should be at the centre or towards the left of the main room. Angels are lucky Christmas symbols. Add candles. They create warmth, positive energy and good- will. Include wood in your decor- ations such as a wreath, to help promote harmony. Add Christmas decorations that represent money such as hanging chocolate coins. 2089638 20/11 Turn your dreams into reality Rodney Binet 0412 822 608 Ann Chen 0404 888 198 2IÀFH 9868 3222 www.binethomes.com.au 50 YEARS EXPERIENCE EXCELLENT VALUE FOR MONEY GREAT RESALE VALUE MULTI AWARD WINNING BUILDER Love where you live, but need a new home?
