Most of the time clients feel that they don’t know where to start, and they think that their current organizational system is the only system to fit their space.

Confessions of an Organizer – Can I donate shampoo to charity?

Have a lack in your life?  Try working on your physical space to receive some good quality energy.  If you’re low on love, start on your bedroom by following these tips to create some more flow.

  6. Remove work items such as laptops and file folders from the bedroom.
  7. Do not face mirrors toward your bed.
  8. Make your bedroom your oasis and let the flow go.
