Is Clutter Really That Constricting?
Now, imagine yourself wanting to have a dance party for one. Stay with me for moment. Now put on the tightest fitting clothes and a straitjacket wrapped around your body. Now put on your favorite dance party song and go ahead and try and have fun with that dance party of yours.
It feels really constricted, doesn’t it?
When a room is filled with clutter this is kind of how it feels. It feels tight, constricted, and you feel like you just can’t move.
Now take off that straitjacket, remove the tight clothing. It’s ok, you’re alone so you can dance naked! Now you get to move your body freely. You can freely move your arms and spin and do all of the things that your body wants to do. You’re now flowing freely with the music.
This feeling of joy and freedom is what it feels like when you have the space that is free of clutter.
When we have a room or space filled with clutter, the energy in a room cannot flow freely.
You don’t have to declutter your whole entire house right away. The thought of this can feel overwhelming. All you need to do is start small to start feeling the shift in the energy.
