Clear The Clutter For a Clear Mind
The space you live in is an outward projection of what is going on inside yourself. If your workspace is cluttered with bills and mail, you may be feeling overwhelmed by your finances or career. If your kitchen is void of food, it may be a sign you lack proper nourishment in your life. By removing objects from your life that no longer serve you, it allows space for new, positive energy to enter.
Decluttering your space can have a positive effect on your mental and emotional well-being.
The Authentic Living Center is moving, so letting go of what no longer serves us has been in our minds as we prepare for the move on December 27th, 2021.
It can be difficult to let go of the past, but letting go is a necessary part of moving forward. By holding onto things of the past or things that no longer have a positive energetic effect on your life can promote stagnant, congested energy.
Healthy energy is flowing energy.
It is well known that flowing water is far healthier than stagnant water. Flowing water is home to fish, while stagnant water fosters mosquitoes.
The flow of water is a great example for how energy flows. When your space is filled with clutter, objects that are associated with bad memories, or items that no longer spark joy in your life, it may promote stagnant, negative energy.
This type of energy congestion can have an outward expression on your life through your mental well-being, finances, career, family, and more. These outward forces may also be what is causing the energy congestion.
Your living space should allow for positive energetic and emotional interactions. Minimal clutter allows for a clear mind, while cool colors such as purple or green bring on a sense of calm.
There are many minor or major adjustments you can make to your space that can have an instant effect on your life in the present.
By balancing your outer world, you can bring peace to your inner world.
5 Easy Ways to Declutter Your Space Now
1) Learn to let go
While letting go can be hard, it is a necesary part of moving forward in life. Take a step back and look at the objects around your space. Do you have items from past relationships? Things you keep simply because of sentiment or value? Give yourself permission to let go of the things that no longer serve you now.
2) Start small
It is easy to start too big, emptying drawers and closets in an effort to declutter, but taking on too big of a project can lead to more clutter. Go section by section, focusing on one small organizational task at a time. Begin in your most visited rooms such as your bedroom, bathroom, and living space to feel an instant difference.
3) Does it bring you joy?
You may have heard this Marie Kondo trick for decluttering before, but if not, it is really simple. Spend a few moments with different items in your home, physically holding them, and see if they spark joy. If not, it is time to part way with the item.
4) Set goals
It is easy to let decluttering become another thing on the endless to-do list. Make it a priority by setting tidying up goals for yourself. Set aside a specific time to declutter and give yourself a goal of how much you will organize that day. Remember to start small and you'll be done before you know it.
5) Make it social
Invite your family to be a part of the organizing, so everyone can feel like they contributed to the home they live in. Friends can also turn organizing from a chore to a fun night-in. With a little music and some great company, decluttering can be a breeze.
Dive right in!
You don't have to do a perfect job or even do a great one, all that matters is your intention and action to declutter your home successfully. Start small with the things you know for sure need to go and work from there. Removing things that have been cluttering your space can feel like a breath of fresh air. It not only allows you to release things from the past, but it allows space for new, exciting energy to enter. You don't have to do it all at once, or even follow the tips provided, all that matters is how you feel in your space.
