The Feng Shui of Collections – How Collections Go from Interesting to Overwhelming

Collections can be interested and fun, but when they overwhelm the house and your life, they can drain energy from your life.

Closet

Everything in our life is in some way a reflection of our life. And by everything, I really mean every thing. Our stuff has a tremendous influence over us - our thoughts, our feelings, even our mental clarity, or lack of it, as evidenced by TV shows that portray hoarders.
