Recently at the Weekly Clutter Busting webinar someone said that she wished she could stay in the de-cluttering frame of mind. But she found that she would soon get caught up and get lost in her stuff again. I said that was normal. It’s not her fault. We are constantly told by the world that we are not enough and we need more things. We are hypnotized into believing that certain things, people and activities will make us whole. So of course we stop questioning what’s in our life. We conform to the acquiring and holding on mindset. And we stay miserable.
But the fact that we began to declutter at some point means a crack was created in the “Things Are More Important than Us” belief. We may forget about clutter busting, but then we remember. It comes back to us spontaneously. There’s a feeling, “Oh, yeah. Right. I don’t have to live that old way of thinking anymore. I’m enough as I am. Things have to prove their value to me, or I will let them go.” That remembering comes in naturally because of the crack that was created in the old belief. And the nature of a crack is that it widens over time. More and more you find yourself remembering about what’s actually important. I say that because it takes encouragement and support. It’s important to hear that you are what matters. Things have value only when they make your life a better place to be. You are sacred and your things are not. You get to say, “No” to what hurts you. You get to take your life back. It’s your nature to look for what no longer supports you, and remove it from your life. Your feeling is the most important voice to listen to to know what to do. That you have a built in clutter radar that tells you when something doesn’t fit your life.
I created the Weekly Clutter Busting webinar as a reminder to value yourself over the things in your life. Each webinar we take a deep, kind and honest look at what’s in our lives. We learn to see what’s truly of value to us, and what isn’t. We learn how to let go. Our next webinar is Monday March 19th from 5 to 6:30pm PST. The cost is only $25. Each webinar is limited to 20 people. You can sign up here: https://clutterbusting.com/webinar/
