Clutter clearing can radically transform your life.
Drawing on her wealth of experience as a feng shui, space clearing and clutter clearing consultant, Karen Kingston explains how clutter is stuck energy with far-reaching physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual effects. This audio book will motivate you to clear your clutter as never before, once you realise just how much your junk has been holding you back!
You will learn:
The paperback edition of this book has sold over one million copies in 25 languages since its publication in 1998 and has established itself as a feng shui "must read" classic. This audio book edition, published in 2012, contains all the latest updates and revisions, including two essential new chapters that were not in the original version of the book. Completely unabridged and narrated by Karen Kingston herself, it gives many insights into the deeper reasons why people keep clutter and - most importantly - how to let it go and get on with your life.

"What a great book and long overdue. I have read it twice in a week and underline more of it each time. Thanks, Karen Kingston, for helping me to simplify my life in a joyful way." (Louise L. Hay, author of You Can Heal Your Life)
"Karen Kingston's book is an important and leading-edge resource that justifiably elevates cleaning clutter from a mundane task to an experience of the sublime." (Michelle Passoff, author of Lighten up! Free Yourself From Clutter)

With this approach, our lives will not only be more open, but more harmonious as well. I'm glad to see that simple living and feng shui have found each other."

Yes. I have the hard copy, a copy on Kindle and I now have the audio book. I highly recommend this book to anyone that has clutter to clear. Read it and you'll see what I mean. Ms. Kingston inspires you to grab the trash bags and start clearing. I read it in one sitting the first time and headed upstairs and tossed four bags of clutter from my computer room that afternoon.
Ms. Kingston explains why we hang onto junk.
This is the only performance I have listened to so far.
I read it for the first time in one sitting.
This is the best book I've found on clearing clutter. It's the only one you'll need.
Non-fiction fan! Bring on the self-improvement, business, sales & marketing books!
Sure would. This book was instrumental in helping me to declutter. I had no idea that following just a few of the simple principles in this book would make such a big difference!
Interesting, informative and inspirational.
The book insired me into action to get my house in order and to get rid of things that I don't love, want or need.
Ms. Kingston has a wonderful accent and is pleasant to listen to.
I have learned that getting organized and then picking up after myself, as well as the proper placement of items in your home, can cause me to feel more in control of my life.
I owned the audio cassette version of this book and was so inspired by it that I listened to it several times. Audio cassettes have become obsolete and I no longer was able to listen to it in my car. (Road trips are my best time for listening). I did a search to try and find a CD or digital version to no avail. I decided to try again and am so excited that it's now available!!
Karen really brings home how we drown out the things that we love with things that we don't really care much about.
Karen's voice and accent are pleasant to listen to.
This is a great book, very helpful to focus on clearing personal space, practical advice from an expert. Karen is a wonderful speaker, with a wealth of info on her subject.
It motivates you to stop "procrastinating" and get to work clearing clutter!
She has a great speaking voice and clearly, with passion, lifts you up in vibration enough to know you can do the things outlined in her book!
That even if you feel stuck and overwhelmed by "clutter" you can clear your space. I read the first edition years ago and sucessfully cleared clutter from my home, what a difference.
Hearing the info again reminded me to keep up with small clutter zones before they grow into large obstacles.
I love this book and author. If you have a chance, go to one of Karen's classes.
Great audio quality, Karen's voice is so easy to listen to. The book provides interesting food for thought when it comes to our living environment and how it affects us. Its inspiring when it comes to our clutter and offers very practical solutions on letting go of it.
Although its integration of Feng Shuei philosophy made it a little off-putting initially, I listened with an open mind and found it to be practical and common-sense. Clutter is an issue in my life, and this audiobook gave me the inspiration to start dealing with it in a positive way. The author, Karen Kingston, is also an excellent narrator. You will enjoy this self-help book.
Photographer at large
Sure...its a great book on getting rid of clutter and moving on in life.
The author is amazing and her British accent was wonderful...
Dump the junk and move on in life...
Really a great book worth several hearings....
I have been listening to this audiobook over and over since I purchased it a month ago in March. It is now April, and I continue to listen to parts of it on a daily basis. Every time I listen, I learn something new. Therefore, I would rank it as one of my top audiobooks.
It is very thorough and covers several areas of a persons life besides just house clutter. For instance, the author touch base on finances, health, and even communications.
The author also narrated the audiobook. The narration was nice, but very frustrating at times because of the accent. In addition, some of the words are pronounced differently which makes it difficult to understand the message at times. For instance, common words like garage and reinvent were pronounced like "gear rage", and "rye invite".
Yes, when the author spoke about health, it was especially touching. I have been battling an illness for quite some time and this audiobook opened my eyes to where the problems may be.
I already heard it through three times. Will be taking notes next time.
I wish there were others. This is the only one you have.
"more than classic feng shui"
I wanted to learn about feng shui and I came across this amazing life changing book.
It’s not the kind of book that will advise you where to place a mirror or where your bed is suppose to be, but goes beyond this issues to something deeper about us and our “stuff” and at what level it can really affect our lives, adding clear advice how to get on.
I now listened to it many times, followed the advice and seeing improvements in my life happening so fast!
Karen Kingston has such pleasurable writing style that makes you listen blissfully to the most valuable information I have received in years.
I can certainly affirm everyone would see their life extraordinarily improved by listen to this book.
"A must read"
I was skeptical at first as I've read few similar books before, but this one has very clear explanation why we do accumulate clutter.
I understand better a physiology behind hording.
"Refreshing and Interesting"
I enjoyed the stories woven in to illustrate the journeys other people are on. Karen does a good job of practically introducing the concepts & philosophy how the energetic flow shapes & affects our lives. How we interact with our environment & the world at large.
It's clearly a passion & way of life for her & she's genuinely enthusiastic about helping others to incorporate the connection between our physical to mental junk (& vice versa). She comes across as warm & has a good blend of being relaxed yet informative.
There are great tips & pieces of advice throughout, but perhaps (as the name suggests) more conceptual & focused on mindset & holistic sensibilities, rather than simply systematic. I will definitely check out more of her work.
"good when you get past the music and bragging."
Different or no music and more advice rather than what her clients have praised her for.
Music and her reading how much she has helped other people.
this book is wonderful and it has helped me to organised and decorated my new house according to feng shui principles and the house feels very peaceful and great enviroment to be in. Love ii!
