Episode 20: Unclutter your Home and Mind
What have you dragged into your life? Objections, collections, boxes, regret, impeding thoughts, fabrication......
Lets talk about letting go and starting again! Life is a winding road we are human beings, we have bodies, thoughts, habitual thought patterns, worries and letting go and moving on is part of a road that takes two steps forward and sometimes a step back. Life isn’t a straight line and once you accept this life become simpler.
-How do you define clutter? Clutter isn’t piles of objects alone. When you do a creative project you need clutter for the mind to work freely, to play in like a kid plays in a sandbox. Clutter is more than objects, it is your thoughts and emotions that keep you from living your best self.
-When you have a pile of stuff and it is limiting your view then you need to do something about it whether it is a pile of limiting beliefs or a pile of objects.
-Clearing up our clutter allows us to be more mindful and to live in the present moment.
-How to attack the underlying energy that creates the clutter? Work slowly, takes small steps, look at it from a distance, remind yourself of the intention you wish to live by and most importantly self-compassion.
-Start with self-care because in caring for yourself you will feel safe and in feeling safe you can begin to tidy up. We are consist energy, our thoughts are energy, our objects are energy, emotional energy, thoughts, fear and so on. It is like glue it sticks to you.
-Clutter is not your enemy it is your teacher! Where do you start? Do you find yourself brooding? How can you tidy your thoughts? Don’t be so hard on yourself- you can handle it and it will work out fine. Gratitude for the things that are in your life and the people around you. Gratitude is like saying I am alive! This higher energy helps you clear up huge amounts of inner clutter.
