Broken Items at Home?

According to Yvonne Phillips, FSII, one of the first steps on your Feng Shui journey should be replacing damaged, broken or rusty items as soon as possible. That means taking these items completely out of your home. Sometimes we hold onto items that should be discarded and end up keeping them for years. Then one day we have to move to another home and there is the broken item in front of us again.

Do yourself a favor and if it is repairable, have it repaired, but be sure to take care of this task before you place it in your new home. You do not want to bring any old, broken energy with you to your new place and this item has that energetic memory.

Always repair broken windows, broken door latches and squeaky doors as soon as you notice them. They are the entrance for the auspicious chi energy that you want and you need to have in your home on a daily basis. These broken items are part of your clutter control. You either keep or repair the object, or you donate it or throw it in the trash. Feng Shui can only be done successfully after a major clutter cleanup.

For another example. broken, leaky faucets are symbolic of your money going down the drain. Pay attention to your plumbing issues and repair them immediately in order to hang on to your wealth!
