You may have felt clutter was bad for you but.....CLUTTER in Feng Shui terms is:
The essence of cluttered spaces – as well as the dominant energy of people who live in cluttered spaces – is based on FEAR mixed with PESSIMISM.
Clearing clutter is NOT EASY.
I have CLUTTER....
Okay A LOT of CLUTTER....
Okay....maybe I'm a low level hoarder.....
I mean I don't have trash everywhere but I do have things from 3 years ago that are still in a pile TO DO.
And you know what staring at that 3 year old pile of TO DO feels like? That TO DO feels like DOODOO and I'm not kidding!!! So I threw it out. All of it. Wasn't even sure what it was. FELT DAMN GOOD. BUT IT'S HARD.
Did you know that the part of the brain which experiences the same pain as break up or losing a loved one is the same part that feels the pain of letting clutter go???!!!!
I, like other Moms, am hanging on by my fingernails trying to remember school parties, homework, house projects, bills due, clothes to the cleaners, gifts to buy, packages to ship...there is a lot to get CLUTTERED about!
To really RID YOURSELF OF CLUTTER you need to:
BE BRAVE. COMMIT. AND...
Bring good energy to the process. Light, music, joy to the process. Otherwise you'll quit. Give up. And STOP.
You may know that clutter EXHAUSTS you. Makes you feel HOPELESS. OUT OF CONTROL. But what if I told you it makes you POOR!!!??
Once you de-clutter, you’re not spending money on things you don’t need. The clutter has been removed and with it all that old, stagnant energy. You’ve opened the door for money to flow into your life!
How do you keep a clutter free home? Have any tips to share?
