Drawing on the success of her first book, Creating Sacred Space with Feng Shui, Karen Kingston has met popular demand by expanding on the indispensable activity of clearing clutter. There is very little of actual Feng Shui here, and certainly nothing you can't get elsewhere, but the clutter problem gets full and complete treatment. Kingston reminds us that clutter is stuck energy that keeps you stuck in undesirable life patterns. Therefore, you can "sort out your life by sorting out your junk." Kingston covers the reasons we keep things as well as the amazing stories of people who have cleared their clutter away. More than just junk, clutter is all those things that have negative symbology and that collect stagnant energy. This latter can also apply to bodily, emotional, and spiritual clutter, all of which Kingston describes with characteristic passion. In an age of accumulation, it's good to see a book that frees up life again.
"A great book and long overdue. I have read it twice in a week. . . . Thanks, Karen Kingston, for helping me to simplify my life in a joyful way."
--Louise L. Hay, author of Empowering Women and You Can Heal Your Life
"Elevates cleaning clutter from a mundane task to an experience of the sublime."
--Michelle Passoff, author of Lighten Up! Free Yourself From Clutter
Inside This Book(Learn More)
I once met a woman who set off traveling around the planet with little more than the ticket to her first destination in her pocket, but she had one extraordinary skill-the ability to read people's palms-and no matter where she went, she was never short of a place to sleep or food to eat. Read the first page

I am always highly suspicious of any book that gets "This changed my life" reviews. I find the more people write glowing categorical reviews of that nature, the more others feel the need to slam what's being reviewed and call it useless. When you open a book expecting miracles, you'll get disappointed.
That being said:
Personally, I couldn't put this book down. I hadn't planned to buy something like this (I generally avoid self-help books), but when I thumbed through it in the bookstore I was hooked. I kept finding myself and my situation in what she was writing about. Having finished it, I've started to tackle some of the clutter that's sat around my apartment for months.
The author walks her talk, and is quite readable. There were a couple of grammatical issues I thought a good proofreader would catch ("disorientating" in the place of "disorienting", for example), and I do feel that the chapter on bodily health insisted too much on fasting and colon cleansing for the context of the book, and should have been seriously pared down or cut entirely. This book addresses homes, and the health of the body is a subject requiring several books of its own. But if you're feeling depressed by the clutter in your life, and your problem is not so much time as motivation to make a change, this book could be very useful for you.
I know I'm keeping my copy.
Additionally helpful are the last two chapters on clearing clutter of the body, i.e. impurities. She stressed the importance of a cleansed colon and how bowel movment irritations could also be a contributor of negative energy. Not an attractive subject to discuss, I admit, but after following a few of her tips, she was completely right. I felt better instantly.
A very reasonable guide to for those just beginning to understand feng shui.
If you are into rebirthing, crystal power and the other trappings of new age nonsense, this is the book for you. If you are after a good book on clearing clutter save your money and look elsewhere.
I doubt everyone will find the same tonic when reading the book, but it worked for me. I think it provided a non-dogmatic twist on 'cleanliness (clutterless-ness) is next to Godliness' and 'the truth (no clutter) will set you free'. Additionally, I suspect the exercise of thinking about family, friends, fame, prosperity, creativity, health, knowledge and livelihood as distinct issues can't hurt.
I read through it in no time and was totally inspired to make a change. Unlike other books of its kind, this book gives you real practical ways of eliminating clutter from your life. I especially liked the way she helped me make decisions about what to keep and what to get rid of.
A weight has been lifted. This book has totally changed my life! Buy it!
