There’s no doubt that clutter can make you feel stuck. But did you know that clutter isn’t always visible?
If your energy feels stuck, it may help to tackle both your visible and your invisible clutter.
Here are a few essential tools to help yourself get unstuck and take more confident control of your life.
1. Clear Visible Clutter
Clutter accumulates, it’s the way of the world. Mail arrives, kids come home from school, meals get eaten, clothing piles up; on and on it goes. Every event seems to present an opportunity for stuff to accumulate.
So it’s super-important to stay on top of it to help Chi energy move freely, bringing new and better things into your life.
One of my favorite ways to make sure there’s always a clear pathway for Chi is to do a “quick daily sweep” starting with Feng Shui’s three most important areas: the entry, kitchen and bedroom.
Once you feel good about these areas you can move on to other spots. Paying a little bit of attention every day will keep positive Chi circulating moving with minimal effort from you.
2. Clear Your Mind
Many years ago I came across the life-changing book The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron, one of the “bibles” of self-discovery.
In the book Cameron presents several ideas designed to help you get in closer touch with your creative spirit.
The idea that changed my life is “Morning Pages” – three pages written in longhand every morning before the day gets into gear.
Writing Morning Pages helps you to clear the clutter in your mind. Everything that’s most important now makes its way onto the page, bringing your awareness to the things that matter now.
3. Clear Your Thoughts
Taking a walk is the best way to bring your attention to the here and now.
Just a turn around the block will do!
After your walk you’ll feel refreshed, with unexpected, productive new thoughts in your mind, and you’ll feel more energized to tackle whatever is coming your way.
How do you keep your life feeling clear and strong each day?
