Have you ever walked in to a room and just felt a sense of calm and ease? If so, that room was more than likely free of “stuff”. By clearing clutter in a space it takes on a whole another persona. It makes you feel better too!
Ask and It Is Given by Esther and Jerry Hicks is essentially a book about attracting and manifesting your desires. The book covers the process of clearing clutter from your environment and how it helps to unblock the good that should be flowing to you.
It’s all about learning to manifest your desires and goals and the chapter dedicated to clearing clutter shows just how important your surrounding environment is. For a better life and generally just feeling good.
In school, one of the basics we were taught in science is that everything is made of atoms which vibrate. Different things vibrate at different frequencies than others but everything is made of the same thing.
“…everything carries its own vibration, and because you develop a vibrational relationship with everything in your life, your personal belongings do have an impact on the way you feel and on your point of attraction.”
It’s the energy that is created in your environment by what you have in there. The Chinese call this energy Feng Shui. Bringing in some order and organisation to your room can be a powerful thing. It brings some control on what you’re bringing into your home and your life. Whether it is negative or positive.
Of course there are other things in your life that you should be doing in helping bring good to yourself and others. Clearing some things out is just one of the ways you can help bring it in faster.
Having minimal clutter doesn’t mean having a minimalist home. Some people have no problem living as a serious minimalist. Freeing themselves from stuff essentially leaves themselves free. Personally total minimalism isn’t for me and some of you would agree with that.
A home that has personality and tells some of your story is important. Whether that’s a minimalist or a maximalist space. How much accessories and decor you have or do not have, makes the room and tells a story in it self. It’s just about organisation. What is serving you and what is not?
What Counts As Clutter?
- Piles of paperwork
- Old or ill fitting items of clothing
- Unfinished work
- Objects gathering dust
- Broken items
- Incomplete projects
- Unpaid bills
- Unanswered letters and emails
- Unopened items that have never been worn or used
- Dead or dying plants and flowers
The list above might seem like the obvious but it’s amazing how much we hold on to without even realising!
Benefits of Clearing Clutter
- You can enjoy your space or home more
- You will be able to find things easily
- A better space for attracting positive things in to your life
- Guests can come come over unannounced (lol)
- You will feel better
It might take a bit of work to get rooms sorted but for the peace of mind it brings it’s worth it!
