Facing your clutter demons essentially means we must be willing to let go of the past in order to embrace the life that is waiting for us.
You see, behind the clutter is a story – your story. Sometimes that story is truly lived out and holds special memories that can be both joyful and painful. And then there’s the story that we tell ourselves – the story we wish would have happened and never did. Either story can keep us locked up in the past if there are unresolved issues.
To resolve the clutter and put the story to rest it takes more than just clearing out your physical space. You have to look within and deal with the events that transpired in your life that keep you imprisoned. Although this may feel intimidating and uncomfortable for many, it’s the first step to uncovering what’s really behind the chaos.
It’s also important to understand why you are manifesting with clutter. To manifest means you are demonstrating outwardly a feeling. Emotional turmoil has no other choice but to come out. Clutter is how you are choosing to release these emotions. Until the feelings are dealt with the clutter will continue to build.
Telling yourself that you have clutter because you are lazy or engaging in any other negative self-talk does not help your situation and only causes you to feel worse about it. So although it may be true that you may be holding onto things because you feel sentimental, guilty, insecure etc., those are just external feelings that derive from the story. Remember that!
It takes courage to face your demons. Give yourself a huge pat on the back and credit for recognizing this!
Once you make peace with your past, de-cluttering your physical space is much easier. This is because you are freeing yourself from the mental clutter that keeps you in conflict about holding on to your things.
There’s a new life out there to be lived. It’s called clutter-free living. And it’s waiting for you!
