I recently worked with a client who felt trapped in sluggishness. It was from the presence of the clutter. That’s what clutter does. It drugs us and takes away the vitality we need to declutter. I said it wasn’t her fault she felt stuck. It happens to all of us. Things turn to clutter over time, and before we know it, our lives feel stagnant. We’re sapped of the drive to let go of the things that no longer serve us.
I helped her by asking a lot of questions. Questions are good for us. Questions like, “Do I like and use this, or can I let it go?” Asking questions about the things in our lives restarts our innate discriminating abilities. It gives us energy. That vitality fuels the clutter busting process. It dispels the inertia.
As she looked within herself and answered the questions, she got her energy and excitement about life back. She made decisions that supported who she is today, not yesterday, or who she thinks she should be.
Life is vitality. It’s movement. Life is change. Life is constantly changing. Asking ourselves how we feel today about the things in our lives, puts us in the momentum of the energy of change. It makes us feel flexible and alive again.
