Clutter is bane to our progress. Unwanted, old, worn out, untidy stuff add to clutter and bring down the energy of the environment. We tend to keep old documents or medical reports which are of no practical use but keep us reminding of our ordeals will continue to attract such and it is better to be wise and let go.
Clutter can also be electronic like your old computer files and emails. Clear clutter so that you make space for new things in life.

This is where fresh energy from the universe is flowing into your home or workplace. Make sure it is clean and lighted. Check the curtains and blinds to take off any accumulated dust and dirt. Not only do you stop the accumulation of germs in your home but also let natural flow in. Let plenty of fresh air and sunshine come in at least 4-5 hours a day.

Take good care of where you keep Your Money
Is your purse torn? How do you keep your rupee notes – crunched and folded? Is your change lying around in a chaotic way?
Abundant people love and respect money. If you see their purse, they keep their notes straight and clean, aligned with the denominations. Change is kept in a smaller compartment neatly. The purse is well maintained. In other words, your purse should reflect you.
Beauty and fragrance of flowers is a sign of nature’s inherent abundance and well-being. Keep fresh flowers at home (throw away dried and wilted ones), and try to avoid plastic or artificial ones. A home filled with beautiful fragrance will always attract splendor, wealth and happiness. Light incense to uplift the atmosphere in your space.
