Emotional Baggage And Clutter

I found this nifty article today while researching voodoo dolls - interesting isn't it? The things I stumble into... I'm not even sure how voodoo dolls and emotional baggage are related - and yet - clearly they are! Isn't the internet an awesome source of distraction? Ok... that being said, here goes:

Often times, clearing out the clutter is more than just getting rid of things and getting organized. People tend to have emotional attachments to things that stand in the way of letting go. And I am not just talking about things with sentimental value. I am talking about holding on to clothes that no longer fit, letters from old lovers, canned goods that you don't ever eat, etc.

  • Getting rid of clothes we'll never fit into again means accepting our current shape and level (or lack) of fitness.

  • Getting rid of possessions remaining after a loved one has died means coming to terms with our loss and grief.

  • Getting rid of books and magazines we don't have time to read means accepting that we will never have enough time or attention to explore every topic that's of interest to us.

  • Getting rid of an expensive item we never use means admitting that we made a poor decision when we bought it.

  • Clearing out the pantry means you accepting you are not living in poverty and are better off giving it to someone else who is hungry and replacing it with food items you will actually eat.

  • Removing clutter means making room for new opportunities.

  • Clearing clutter means removing all of the excuses that keep you from fulfilling your dreams.

  • Clearing clutter and creating fresh, sacred space means you deserve to live in a clean and peaceful environment full of beautiful things.
