I help clients create outer order for inner lightness of being.
Organizing alone is never enough
When you have closets stuffed with clothes you don’t wear, bookshelves overflowing with books you’ll never read, a kitchen crammed with gadgets you don’t use, and all this feels like a weight around your neck, think about what’s really essential to you. Everything has energy attached to it, everything. Too much clutter will drain your energy without you being conscious of it, but I promise, you will still be affected.
There is another way to live
Whether you’re planning a move or just want to improve the way you live in your home, give serious thought to what it means to enhance your environment by living with only things you love, use and need.
Enhance Your Environment
Enhancing your environment is about consciously removing what is no longer useful, needed or wanted and some of what is just “too much” for the space you live in. It’s pairing down, letting go, not filling every available space just because you can. If you look around and see mostly clutter, then you know what I mean.
My Personal Experience in Enhancing my Environment
Much of my life I wondered why it was so easy for me to create clutter and so difficult to get rid of it. Finding out I had ADHD, was a relief. It gave me a chance to learn skills to help with my challenges.
Once I got somewhat organized, I expected it to stay that way. It didn’t.
It didn’t matter how many books I read, how many clients I helped with their homes, how much effort I’d put into organizing my own home until I realized I simply had too much stuff to be comfortable. The process took conscious effort to select what was to stay and what needed to go. I had a lot of excuses to work through… “I might need that someday” “I paid a lot of money for that.”
Then, one afternoon I walked into my living room and felt a deep sense of “Ah.”
I had finally reached the tipping point into the lightness of being.
That “Ah” feeling… is what I want for my clients.
The biggest surprise in all this—removing what I don’t love, use or need deeply changed my clutter habits in a remarkable way. It’s easy to keep up with my life now. I continue to get that “Ah” feeling without having to be perfect about it.
