Moving into a new home can be a truly exciting experience. We all long for a fresh start and new, happy beginnings, even though most of the time we also resist letting go of the old! The ancient art and science of feng shui can help you release old energy, as well as invite the new into your life.

However, there is one more feng shui step that is important to know when you are moving to your new home. In the language of feng shui energy, letting go of the old (clearing energy) and setting intentions for the new (applying feng shui cures) is not enough. When you move to a new home, you also have to be sure to start with a clean, clear energy foundation. 

It is important to know that houses have memories, just like people do. The energy of all events that happened there in the past will still linger inside. The smartest way to go when you move into a new space is to do some space clearing to assure you start with a clean slate.

After you've done some space clearing, pay extra attention to these 5 important feng shui areas.

2. Space with No Clutter. An orderly space with no clutter is the best feng shui foundation for your new home. This means that ideally, you have dealt with your clutter before moving to your new space. To prevent clutter from accumulating in your new home, be sure to start with a good organization system. When every item in your home has its own space, the possibility of creating clutter is greatly diminished.

3. A Good Feng Shui Kitchen. The kitchen is the first area to energize, feng shui-wise when you move into a new home.
