Ready to De-Clutter?

Are you ready to de-clutter and reorganize? Are there piles of papers or things scattered about? Do you find certain ‘friends’ cluttering your life with drama? Do you have space for quiet time, meditation and creating? Whether it is your physical space or your energetic space when you decide to de-clutter and reorganize you will have a renewed sense of peace and calm AND you will  have more space to create in.

De-cluttering  is different each time you do it. This week you might want to clean out and reorganize your closets, next week it could be clearing out old friends or  letting go of energies that are not in your best interest perhaps causing chaos or drama that isn’t yours.  No matter what it is, de-cluttering and reorganizing anything that doesn’t serve you in its present form is beneficial to your health and happiness.

This is truly a personal “do it yourself” project! After all, no one can really help you decide what is important to keep, what you’d like to get rid of or how you want to reorganize it. Most likely you can look around your physical space to clue you in to your energetic space. If things are piled up, unorganized, not prioritized and waiting for your attention in the physical,  take a look to see what is waiting for your attention etc. on an energy level. Your physical space is a direct reflection of your energetic space!

“Out of chaos comes order” ~Friedrich Nietzsche

How many times have you wanted to tackle the enormous task of cleaning out and organizing the closets, clearing off your desk, re-organizing, re-prioritizing or getting rid of those things you no longer use but never get to it? Have you ever started but couldn’t finish? There’s actually a very good reason these tasks are overwhelming. All clutter is energy and holds energy! In terms of your energetic space & relationships, clutter is the ‘pictures’ associated with those particular people or energies.

Physical items hold an abundance of energy. As you touch each item you are affected by the energies and memories held in those objects. You are literally getting bombarded with energy! Your psychic ability to feel energy in objects called psychometry and whether you realize it consciously or not you use this ability every time you touch something.

Forgive yourself if the task at hand feels overwhelming or you keep putting it off! It may indeed be simply because of all the energy you experience. Once you forgive yourself, take one step at a time. Clear out a small corner and see how much space you have! Delicately and with grace forgive those people or relationships you are ready to de-clutter from your life and clear them out.

Organize yourself around that which that nurtures your spirit and supports you.  Get rid of whatever you’ve thrown in the closet just because you weren’t using it and had no where else to put it! Open your eyes to what you can create by clearing out a space for it! De-clutter your life and care for YOU! ~Shine Your Light Debbie

Got Space?

Having space on both  an energetic and physical level is pretty amazing. When you have your space there is room to breathe, room to create AND there is  space for dreams to become reality!

Think about it for a moment. How can you bring something in if there’s no space for it? It’s astounding how much space we give away on a day-to-day basis. Not only do we give away our “time and energy”, we hold on to “things” that have a great deal of energy attached to them and those things take up space.

A few weeks before the end of the year I decided to clear out and create more space in my condo. For  some time I’ve wanted to start this task but honestly it felt overwhelming! This time I was bound and determined to get things in order. What I decided to do was look at it from the perspective of moving. My thought was to go through every inch of my home and clear out anything I wouldn’t take with me if I was moving. This is different from just organizing.

I’ve lived in the same place for many years and let’s just say things found their place hidden in drawers, on shelves, in closets and some were in plain sight. I couldn’t part with certain items because of sentimental value, I might wear it (or use it) again, and some were those “one of a kind” special things. I’ve never considered myself a pack rat but seriously did I really need the VHS tapes, the picture in a cracked frame I’ve had semi hidden behind a door or clothing I haven’t worn in 10 years?! I’m still amused about getting rid of  jewelry from my late teens…let’s just say my niece got a bag of fantastic retro jewelry. 🙂

Why do we hold on to ‘things’? Initially the intention is that these things are still useful so we keep them but let’s face it there are certain things we have difficulty getting rid of. Those ‘things’ fill a void. They make us feel better when we look at them because they bring back memories of a time long past.  Having lots of ‘things’ make us feel abundant.

The fact of the matter is that all those ‘things’ hold bits of your energy AND take up space. They also signify limits and lack. In terms of “lack” you are actually telling the universe that you don’t have enough resources to replace what your getting rid of. Why keep the shirt or pair of shoes you haven’t worn in years? Get rid of them and find something you love even more! If something hasn’t been used in years it’s time to clear it out! Living in abundance means knowing you can create something new! This doesn’t mean getting rid of memories or things that truly have a special meaning . It means clearing out ‘things’ that you will never use again to create more physical space and as a bonus, you collect up YOUR energy in the process!

For me the experience was a wonderful trip down memory lane.  I gathered up my energy and cleared out the ‘things’ that had no longer held meaning (or my energy 😉 )and were taking up space.  I let go of old hopes and dreams knowing that by doing so I would have a space for new hopes and dreams to become real. If something I’ve said here resonates with you, take the steps to make more space for yourself on an energetic AND physical level. Clear out those ‘things’ that no longer have meaning and merely take up space in your life and/or your home.

Clearing physical space is very freeing. It brings your ‘space’ into present time and makes space for new hopes & dreams to become real!  OK, so I couldn’t part with the 50 lbs of beads from Mardi Gras but that’s a story for another day. 🙂 ~Shine Your Light Debbie
