What is clutter?


Following on from my new year’s resolution and still looking at how to close 2017 and get rid of any unnecessary things/ objects/ thoughts, I watched Denise Linn  video Hay House What is clutter? to assist me in my quest.

Clutter clearing is not just about moving stuff, it is an emotional and emotional journey. It is also clears any blocks, limitations and patterns. It is about letting go.

Clutter clearing is modern day alchemy. Nowadays in the Western civilisation we are bereft of rituals and ceremonies. These are needed and alchemy gives form. Denise affirms that, as you clear clutter away with passion and love you can gain clarity about your life. Simply by moving an object you may be also removing a family pattern, a relationship and emotional blockages. It allows you to remember what is important for you and what your soul wants.

So, what is clutter? Denise Linn explains it as follows:

if you do not love it, it is clutter as it is clogging your life,
 creating blockages and barriers and it is stealing your time

Clutter can be a trigger for memories and associations. In this video Denise says that you probably have things which trigger negative associations so, instead of stepping into a sanctuary where your energy is uplifted, your energy goes down when you are at home. There may be tens of things which bring you down. As you clear this energy blockage starts to resolve. This should not be a chore but a grand spiritual adventure. This is about your life with every object you remove your life improves and gets lighter. As you have a vision of what you desire each object will propel you towards it.

I did a major clear out a few years ago. I moved away from my family house to a new house. The previous house held a lot of memories belonging to the family which were very painful to release. The clearing process took time and a lot of feelings emerged. I gave them space to arise and released them. I stopped at regular intervals to release emotions and ensure that I had a lot of self-care through this process. If you are aware that tidying up certain categories is going to bring up strong emotions ensure that you plan for them so they have space and time to be released. Be also aware that unexpressed emotions can come up and it is best to deal with them. Seek help if you need it.

So, a few questions you may like to think about

  • What are you going to tidy up first?
  • When are you going to do it? Put it in the diary and get ready to dedicate the time, space and energy it takes.

As you tidy up ideas may emerge as to other things/ actions you would like to take. Do not dismiss them, keep a journal near you and write everything down. These may be the seeds of change you were looking for.

Let me know how your tidying up went by writing a comment below.

  • What emotions did clearing bring for you?
  • How did you feel afterwards?

Here’s an excerpt:

Attracting genuine love by Katie Hendricks

I have been taking the Attracting Genuine Love course via podcast by Katie Hendricks. I highly recommend it, the mantras are very useful and the breathing exercises too!

“Today I experience the power of seeing things as they are so I can create things the way I want them to be!”

“Today I allow myself to see that a lot of my life’s painful dramas have not been my own. This knowledge frees me to create a life that is my own”

“Today I feel deep in myself, my own essence, the deepest truth of my being and I am grateful for who I am”.

The importance of team work

In this day and age where individuality seems to be highly valued, were we compete against each other, were we are encoraged to outdo each other, be smarter, work harder, it is importance to recognise the value of team work. Two heads do think better than one and there is a wonderful natural flow when working together. After years of having to work alone, I relish the opportunity to join a team and go further than I have been able to do by myself, to outgrow my beliefs, to acquire new skills. As social animals that we are, teamwork is essential for our survival and well being. I define myself by having boundaries against another yet I also define myself by belonging to a team. Being able to contribute to our society, be part of a team is as essential as knowing who you are and setting your own goals. So, instead of looking at each other like potential threats, let’s see each other as an opportunity to take our learning further.

Blank canvass

As my children grow older and start making their own choices I see their lives with wonder. Their lives can be written in a blank canvass, they can make their own mistakes, they have their won dreams to pursue fitted and tailored to their personalities. They are fully aware of the costs involved in pursuing higher education in this day and age, they have the information needed to make their choices but ultimately the choices will be theirs. Of course their dad and myself will have some input in those choices, being the voice of reason sometimes, encouraging them to be themselves and do something that they love but ultimately the choices are theirs.

To me this is so exciting, to see another human being grow and take shape, make decisions every step of the way and the level of maturity and independence that this entails. It makes me proud to be able to listen and provide advice. It makes me proud that both my children have learnt empathy, to take care of themselves and also of other people, that they are happy individuals with a positive outcome in live living it with enthusiasm.

Sometimes, as we grow older and we have more responsibilities, we can become cynical, tired in our view of the world. Being with children makes us see live in a new light again and believe that anything is possible if we open our minds and hearts to it.

The power of love

Gay and Katie Hendricks say

Love yourself, love all the parts that are difficult to love especially our internal saboteur.

Define what it is you want, the yes and no, the deal breakers in a relationships (things you would not put up with like drugs, addictions, meaness, violence, infidelity).

Release the past, send it love. That was THEN and this is NOW. Love happens NOW:

Think about love as an adventure and an experiment, be in awe of it.

Stretch yourself to learn something new because that gets creativity going and opens up passion.

From the start of a relationship make sure you are authenthic and completely honest and you will attract the same back. It creates aliveness and a flow of creativity.

Look and love the damaged picker, that part of you that keeps choosing the wrong person for yourself. Send it love. Love the unlovable parts of yourself.Create yourself as a lovable person.

Be in a relationship with someone who is blown away by you and you feel the same way back.

Tell yourself ” I choose ease in my loving relationship”.

Create a love vibration inside yourself, realise love is already happening inside yourself and then expand that out into the world.
