How to declutterJump into it! There is no special way to start. Simply take a look at what’s in your house and ask yourself: Why am I keeping this stuff? How would it feel if I got rid of it? Would it help clear up some energy? Consider how long each item has been stored away. When was the last time you used it? Is it actually something you need to keep? Certain items hold a sentimental attachment that can keep us from letting it go. Remember you don’t need to let go of everything! Consider if its presence is taking up space in your life that could be keeping you from manifesting your goals now and go from there. Check out the KonMari Method by Marie Kondo. Using this method, you hold each item and ask yourself ‘does this spark joy for me’? If it does, keep it. If it doesn’t, it’s time to let it go. Look at the things you want to upgrade in your life. For example, if you want to manifest a new computer start decluttering your current one. This could include deleting old files and backing up the files you want to keep for easy transfer. I suggest choosing to declutter the things that are most aligned with what you want to manifest. This will have the most impact. For example, if you want to manifest new clothing then declutter your closet. If you want to manifest more money, declutter your wallet. Decluttering energy and emotions is just as important as getting rid of physical things we no longer need. Tapping is a great tool to do exactly that. By tapping on acupressure points while repeating a script, this method helps to clear emotional blockages and free up energetic space. You can find some amazing tapping tutorials on Youtube – I’ve been enjoying this Tapping for $50K by Margaret Lynch.
Why is decluttering so powerful?When you declutter, you are clearing energy which makes space for something new to manifest in your life. It can be easy to get bogged down in the energy. If emotions are holding you back or there is no more space in your home for more things to physically manifest, it makes perfect sense that new things simply won’t be able to manifest under these conditions. It’s time to do the work to remove those blockages.
When is the best time to declutter?The best time in the moon cycle to declutter is during the waning moon. The 2 weeks between the full moon and the new moon are all about releasing whatever is keeping you stagnant and stuck, making this an ideal time to clear out those emotional, energetic, and physical blockages. As the moon moves through her monthly lunar cycle, the energy shifts set the stage for each step in the manifesting process to unfold:
- New moon – Set intentions
- Waxing moon – Do the work, take action
- Full moon – Be open to receive, send out gratitude
- Waning moon – Declutter, surrender and have faith that your intentions will manifest in divine timing
