My point is that our stuff affects us, directly, and it’s time for us to start recognizing it. Recognition is this week’s theme in my Clean Slate: Moving From Chaos to Clarity class and I’m inviting you to accept the challenge, too.
Spend this week noticing the way your stuff makes you feel. I want you to open your eyes and your mind and your heart and really feel the way you experience your environment. If you’re away from home, notice your energy level before you go back, then check in again when you walk in the front door. Does “home” feel good to you? Does your bedroom feel restful and relaxing? Does your kitchen feel like you want your body to feel?
Notice the way your space makes you feel.
Of course, we’re also taking lots of action this week, but this journey is not just about cleaning the house or making things look pretty, it’s about freeing ourselves. We are freeing ourselves from the endless to-do list, from the indecision and overwhelm that used to leave us paralyzed. That old, stuck life is over. We are taking action. We are stepping into our power. Everything is different now.
By making decisions about the stuff in our space–releasing that which no longer serves us–we go beyond aesthetic improvements. We cut ties with those things that hold us back, that drain our energy, that are no longer supportive of who we are today. And in doing so, we allow our environment to align with our current selves, and we make space for more of what we need and desire to flow into our lives.
The connection between our inner world and our environment is real. If your life doesn’t feel like you want it to, now is the time to release, release, release.
