De-cluttering my Energy

Cold room

I am keeping busy de-cluttering the house. I have ordered a large dumpster that will arrive on Monday and stay for 7 days. I’ve got the garage, the cold room, and the storage shed to clean out. This sounds like a mundane task, and boring to blog about, but there is something powerful about taking control of my environment and clearing out the stuck energy. It’s a bit of a spiritual journey. Deep down I believe that as I get rid of old useless items, it makes room for new energy to enter my life. It’s like I am participating in a project that will  move me forward in life. I don’t know what that moving forward will look like, but I feel that I am proactively inviting it in.

I have run across lots of old photos and not sure what to do with them. I think I will separate them into piles for the kids and for Steve’s family and send them on. They bring back memories, which is nice, but basically they just sit in a box until they are looked at every 30 years. So I’m going to send them on their way. I might save a few to make a scrapbook, but that will have to wait until I have more time.

    • Thanks for the words of encouragement and support. Some days I look at the mess and get overwhelmed! It’s nice to know someone else did it and enjoys the resulty.
      Thanks,
      Glenda

  2. If you scan your pics to a file on your computer you are more likely to look at them and they take up far less space! Have fun decluttering – enjoy the journey 🙂

    • Great idea Peggy! Then I can let them go but still have them “in the cloud.”
      Thanks,

  3. AHHHH….. Decluttering!
    This is near and dear to my heart, (not that I have completely accomplished this magnificent feat myself!)

    I am developing a whole segment on decluttering for my curriculum on Death and Dying for a class I will be teaching with a wonderful person for Wisdom of the Whole.

    First, kudos to you for seeing the powerful tool that decluttering is!! Next, HURRAY you have the next step already in gear and have the dumpster on its way! I love how you are sending the amazing pieces of paper history on their way to the kids for them to continue.

    It is a profound gift to ourselves to have a simple and warm nest.

    It is a profound gift to our family to have a simple and warm nest for them to tend to when we pass along.

    Before and After pictures are very inspiring.

    Happy Nesting!
