Decluttering your house allows you to declutter your mind and heart allowing for expansion and new possibilities to enter.”
I didn’t realize I had a cluttered kitchen until I no longer felt inspiration to cook. As a certified holistic health coach, it’s important for me to be able to create healthy meals for myself and my clients and to allow for the creative flow to take place. But I just couldn’t. I wasn’t. I stopped preparing meals except for smoothies and a few things here and there, then I deduced it to my kitchen being too small.
It is in fact, small, but that really wasn’t the problem. I didn’t realize it until I started mentioning that I was feeling less than inspired to cook because I didn’t have space. A friend replied, “It’s just that things are cluttered.” Cluttered? The thought hadn’t occurred to me as I thought I thought I had maximized the space as much as I could and I was seemingly proactively purging things that no longer served a purpose or had seen their better days.
Then I had some friends come over to take a look. They began giving me suggestions for moving things around to open up the small space up. I was now feeling inspired again.
My friend came over and between the two of us we did a makeover. It was still the same size space, but somehow, by strategically moving the refrigerator, a couple of storage items, getting rid of five bags full of items, it started to magically look like another kitchen! Then there was no stopping me; from room-to-room I began moving things, purging things, beautifying things, it has been cathartic.
What this activity has done has not only enabled me to revive my sacred home space, but to clear my mind and spirit. We often take for granted that a cluttered physical space can lead to a cluttered mind. Now that I have opened up space in my home, I have opened up possibilities in my life to flow with more ease. I just know it.
And I can’t wait to whip up some awesome dishes. What areas in your home or life need to be decluttered? Feel free to write to me, I would love to hear from you.
