Does it matter how you do it?
Thiis is good practice for asking yourself "what is the next right move?"
How does this relate to organising?
- It reduces your "stuck" feelings. If you can get into the habit of asking yourself and seeking your intuition, you stay in a place of calm, of curiosity, of investigation, you're less attached to a perfect outcome, you want to see what happens. That way, your energy keeps flowing, and you understand you're on a journey, and things will continue to change. It's easier to move forward and try something and see if it feels right to you. If it does, great! If it doesn't, you've learnt something, you can change it, and try something else. This means you feel empowered to take action, and action reduces your clutter.
- You know whether your belongings make you happy. The better you are at listening to yourself, the more you recognise how your belongings make you feel, and whether they are valuable in your life. You need to be able to identify that to decide what to keep and what to let go. For example, if you are surrounded by belongings that you are keeping out of obligation, you are likely to feel the weight of expectation around you, and feel a lot of resistance to that, which brings procrastination, lethargy, avoidance and anxiety. If, on the other hand, you are surrounded by belongings that support the way you want to live, you feel a certain lightness, a clarity of purpose, a feeling of comfort, and a sense of movement.
