Tune Back In By Clearing Out the Clutter

dlrSometimes I will find myself in a funk where I am not thinking clearly….I am easily distracted….I try tapping into my intuition and begin some work or a project….and….nothing.  I will ask….what gives?   Why am I blocked right now and why can’t I focus!?!  Then I take a deep breath…and I consider my surroundings.

This is the time of year when I love to do a purge around the home and in my workspace.  I have learned through trial and error that clutter and excess stuff that has built up in the corners, in my closets, on shelves, tabletops, window sills, you name it…..it gets in my way, blocking fresh energy from flowing in….and old stale energy from flowing out.

I follow the motto…when in doubt throw it out.  If I need to keep something, I put it in a better place that is not distracting or not contributing to a pile.  I am not a neat freak, nor do I need everything to be perfect.  But I do know from my own experience and from working with people that the clutter does create blocks regarding intuition, thinking clearly, the flow of energy, and just overall feeling good.

KTDSurvey your home, your office, your car….wherever you spend time…..and clean out the clutter!  Look in your cabinets and stuff behind closed doors….in your closets, inside drawers, your glove compartment, trunks, that clutter can energetically seep into your environment and cause blocks.   Stale energy often builds up in corners so pay close attention to them and clear them out.

As I sat in my office the other day, initially stumped as to why I felt so cloudy, uninspired, and out of touch with my intuition……I turned around to my credenza and opened it.  Aha!  A total mess…..books fell out….papers and all sorts of stuff I shoved in there to get it out of the way when someone was coming over.

Immediately I sat on the floor….jumped right in and went through it all….taking the books and placing them nicely on a bookshelf.  I threw out papers not needed and I filed those that are important.  I put those old candles to use and actually burned them rather than letting them sit there collecting dust.  When I finished it was like a huge exhale….I could breath again.

Speaking of candles…..burning candles will really help clear the energy of your space.  White candles especially will summon the sacred….the light and heat of the flame attracts what no longer serves and burns it away….while at the same time radiating new energy and a higher vibration in any room.

Burning incense is another way to clear a space of old stale energy and to call upon good energy.  There is a reason churches are filled with candles and incense…..to bring forth angels and all the blessings of a higher power….and to clear away all of the lower energies that are not welcome.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAEven ringing a bell will freshen up the energy of a room….another trick used in old churches.  The vibration and high tone connects to Spirit and energetically lifts a room.

If you have raw crystals, try not to cluster them too close together in corners.  Each crystal has its own power and unique vibration and they need space for their energy to flow.  Its like piling a lot of people in an elevator and everyone getting claustrophobic…..if the crystals don’t have enough space between them….you will feel the tension emitting from them.  Small raw crystal should be allowed about 12 inches of space around…..larger ones deserve much more space.  If the crystals are polished, the energy is not as intense so you don’t need to worry about giving them as much space.

Also be mindful of any plants that are super spikey……sharp points and edges jutting out.  Those points can puncture the flow of good energy and cause disruptions.  These types of plants need good homes and its okay to have them….but try not to place them close to your bed or where you spend a lot of time…..keep them out of the bedroom and if they are in a living room…..keep them as far from where you sit as possible.

Consider what you can donate to charity…..decluttering will also present the opportunity to give and help others…..this will elevate your spirit….good karma circulating!

Lastly, open your windows and let fresh air to flow through no matter how warm or cold it is outside.   Open the shades and allow sunlight in even if its just for a few minutes.  Your surroundings need to breathe and need that new energy to break through the old!

Have you been trying to figure out why you can’t concentrate or why you are not in your usual flow?  Well then try clearing out the clutter….these steps will reinvigorate the energy of your surroundings and your own energy…..and you will feel tuned in again.

Feel free to keep me posted on your progress in decluttering your life this season!
