We’ve been focusing on Unmanifesting. So far we’ve been focusing on material “stuff” but keep in mind that it would also behoove you to do some mental clean-up
Mental de-cluttering and emotional de-cluttering are also extremely important because if not done, they can lead to self-imposed blockages, resistance, and massive frustration and stress. Holding on to grudges, anger, or bitterness blocks you from receiving and causes you to be frustrated, discouraged, unmotivated, and depressed.
How do you de-clutter in this way? Well, start by recognizing the predominant thoughts running through your mind and then the subsequent feelings you have as a result. What’s your general opinion and belief about your life and abilities to co-create it? What is your view on manifestation, your friends, your family, money, etc.? Go through each area of your life and make a list of all the beliefs and feelings you have that pertain to each one. Let it all flow. Don’t hold back. The more honest and candid you are with yourself, the better. No one has to see your list; it’s between you and you.
Homework Assignment: Pick a different area in your home or office and give yourself permission to go on the “Stuff” Diet.
If there are clothes in your closet that you have not worn in the last 24 months — get rid of them! If there are clothes you don’t like and don’t give you a good feeling when you wear them — get rid of them. If there are clothes that need repair, have them repaired. Your one exception: you can keep your wedding dress or tuxedo!
Don’t forget to clean out your attic and garage; inevitably there are things you’re keeping that would cost more to repair than replace — throw it out or give it away.
Get rid of old furniture, toys, office files, magazines, and newspapers. Clear out the junk that robs you of your energy and time whenever you see or think about it.
De-clutter your life from the tangibles and intangibles that are no longer adding to your well-being. New substances, new relationships, and new opportunities do not flow easily into a cluttered environment.
Another important homework assignment is to allow yourself to gently move away from acquaintances and friends who are no longer really friends. Just because you were close and had a lot in common at one time does not mean that you’re destined to be friends forever.
Give yourself permission to really see and let go of relationships that have grown in different directions. By continuing to spend your time with people you no longer really have a rewarding relationship with, you are preventing yourself from opportunities to meet and spend time with people that you would really enjoy or learn from.
POINT TO CONSIDER: Most of us don’t remember “stuff” but we do remember experiences. Why not start creating your life with memories instead of things that have to be insured, cleaned, or repaired!
Letting go and releasing what is no longer needed or wanted allows your life to be more organized and less stressed, and you will gain a sense of clarity. Apply this concept of the “STUFF DIET” to every area of your life and watch the clarity unfold for you, too.
Remember less is more and clutter free feels good.
Your new motto: If it doesn’t serve a purpose, have meaning or monetary value—out it must go!
