My Best Clutter Clearing Advice
in Just Four Words
It's time you know how simple the steps to clearing clutter really are.
In fact, my best advice ever for how to clear clutter takes just four simple words.
In fact, you could probably get rid of 75% of your stuff, right now, and never miss a thing.
Even living in an Airstream, in less than 200 square feet, I could probably get rid of half my stuff and still be just fine. In fact, a week ago I dropped off 5 bags of stuff at Goodwill.
I can hear you now.
"You don't understand!"
"I might need that stuff someday."
"What if my kids want some of that stuff someday?"
"I spent good money on that stuff!"
I know all of that.
I just don't happen to believe any of it.
Because those thoughts are all a lie.
Those thoughts are all a great big smokescreen. They feel 100% real, but they are not real.
The real issue is underneath the smokescreen.
Think of it like this:
Clutter is the symptom
The reasons you say it's hard to let go is the layer of smokescreen
what started it all is the core belief(s)
Anything that makes clearing clutter feel hard is also making the rest of your life feel hard, too... in countless other ways.
You just don't know that they're connected to your clutter.
The "good reasons" it feels hard to let go.
The thoughts running through your head.
The clutter patterns you've seen play out over and over again.
What's underneath that smokescreen is the even deeper lie that you took on as true at some point in your life, and it hid itself away where you wouldn't have to consciously feel it all day long.
But make no mistake, it's quietly running your life.
That deeper lie is some version of:
- I'm not good enough.
- I'm going to fail anyway, so why even bother?
- Life is hard.
- I have to work harder than anyone else.
That inner stuff? That's the real clutter.
Without addressing the inner lie, the clutter in your life is going to keep coming back.
It has to.
That inner belief has to manifest itself somehow in your life.
The good news?
All we need to know is the symptom: the clutter that's right in front of you.
You've probably been thinking that those piles of paper that have been driving you crazy are a problem, right?
I see them as an amazing treasure map, one that will lead us right to the smokescreen, and then directly to the inner lie.
Then, using simple mind-body techniques, we easily get to the heart of what's going on, and clear the patten at the source.
Then, letting go of your stuff is easy.
If "toss half your stuff" feels like the hardest thing on the planet, schedule a conversation with me and we'll see if I can point you in the right direction.
