Manifesting and Clutter

I have always been fascinated by the process of creating what we desire into physical form. And my work with others often involves assisting them to do just that. It may be assisting someone in finding a new love or new job, increase financial prosperity or improve well-being. My specialty involves not only personal explorations with clients, but also a physical examination of their personal spaces. Nine times out of ten, clutter in the home (or work space) is at play. The bottom line is clutter creates stuck energy.

It is a rare situation when stuck energy doesn’t translate back to one’s life experiences. Clutter can contribute to procrastination, the inability to move forward, carrying excess weight, stress, overwhelm, and lack of clear seeing. Clutter can dull the senses and contribute to ill health. In feng shui, clutter has an expanded definition. It is:
  • Visual disarray
  • Things that need attention or need to be repaired
  • Too much stuff for the size space
  • Things you don’t use
  • Things you don’t love
The impact of clutter can translate back to your life even if you can’t see it or try to hide it. Clutter can exist in drawers, cupboards, closets, files, basements, garages, and attics. If you are working on making any kind of change in your life, I encourage you to address your clutter. Take it slow and be consistent. I guarantee you will be amazed by the results. Good luck!

    What do we do about the problem of one person wanting to clean up clutter, and the spouse wanting to hold onto useless things “because some day they might be worth something?” I’m talking about old artwork that is really out of style, and that neither one of us likes, or wants to use, but my husband wants to store than and anything else we should be getting rid of in an attic store room. How can one lessen the impact of stuff stored like this?

    I run into the situation you describe very often and it’s a challenging one. On one hand, it’s not appropriate to get rid of another person’s things. On the other hand, keeping things “just in case” is a form of focusing on lack and can actually block the flow of abundance and prosperity.

    Good luck with that one because it requires skill and finesse to resolve and work through. Keep me posted!

    Most of these things were mine (inherited from relatives) which my husband doesn’t want me to get rid of. So I’ve agreed to put them in an upstairs storage room, although I’m not relaly happy about it.

    Best regards,
