If you want to have flow in your life, begin by loving and being grateful for what you already have. Gratitude does so many things; it makes sense of your past, brings you peace for today, and creates a vision for your tomorrow.
Resistance and resolution are at opposite poles on the spectrum of clutter control. Resistance primarily has to do with not being able, or willing, to deal with the negative feelings clutter has in your life. Or, the opposite effect happens and you get attached to the negative feelings clutter gives you.
You can shift that feeling. If you have clutter, it means you have kind of abundance in your life. We can say that your life is, in a way, overflowing with stuff. Even if you don’t necessarily love your stuff, you are still in a state of overflow and abundance.
Psychologist Carl Jung contended, “What you resist not only persists but will grow in size.” This means that not only will your resistance to clutter only continue despite you not wanting it to, but, over time, you will attract more and more of what you are resisting.
The only way to get rid of clutter is to accept it. How does your home feel? If you are not happy with what you see, are you willing to do something about it?
Accept everything in your life. Even accept the resistance you have not to accept.
Find your “pain point.” Where do you feel the burden of your clutter? Is it on the inside or the outside? If there is clutter inside of your body and you feel you are carrying too much weight, decide what you want to eliminate right now. Don’t start with a new diet that promises big changes. Changes are simply small steps that are done on a daily basis. Eliminate three things you eat that you know aren’t good for you and decide stop for a month.
Do you have a difficult economic situation? Try a shopping free month. Do not make a huge change all at once; one month is enough to start. Take one small step at the time. This is the secret.
If you want to create the home and the life that you love, you need to let go of what you don’t love.
