Broken things clearly are sources of negative energy. You usually feel some negative feeling when looking at or dealing with something broken. You may feel irritated, annoyed, frustrated, burdened with one more task to be done, angry, even tired.
Broken things hold the energy of brokenness and can attract being broke (financially) or being physically broken (health problems). Remember energy attracts more of the same. Broken things also require work on your part. First you have to decide if a broken item is worth fixing. If so, you have to figure out how to fix it. You might need to find someone to fix it. You might need to take it to a repair shop, and on and on. Do you get the picture? The best thing to do with broken things is to either fix them quickly if they are worth fixing, or to pitch them in the trash.
