There are so many physical benefits to being organized, but have you ever thought about the mental and spiritual boost you can get from organization?
Whether you're dealing with your home or office, getting rid of all that clutter can translate into a deeper type of cleansing. Consider it to be a form of purification! Every time you throw something in the garbage, you're creating a sense of lightness and freedom that can turn into a major mental boost.
All of this de-cluttering can even impact the energy around you. When you clean up the space around you, it gets rid of any stagnation that's affecting it and invites a flow of fresher, more invigorating energy.
The end result? More peace, prosperity, harmony, and ultimately, success!
But how do you get organized in the first place? It can seem like such a daunting task when you're staring at a messy space. Here's a step-by-step guide for doing it the right way:
1. Clear away the clutter.
Clutter isn't just unpleasant to look at. It also pulls your focus away from more important things and leaves you feeling overwhelmed. That's why it's so important to get rid of it! Go through each piece, and be honest with yourself about whether or not you really need it. If it's something unimportant that's just taking up space, throw it away.
2. Don't allow the keepsakes to become clutter.
Just because something needs to be kept doesn't mean it can be messy! Instead of tossing important things into your drawers and closets, take some time to organize them and store them neatly. After all, clutter is clutter. Even if it's tucked behind a door or in a drawer, it'll still give you all of those negative vibes!
3. Give everything a good scrubbing.
Once you've cleared away the clutter, grab the duster, the vacuum cleaner, the mop, and all of the other cleaning gear you need to make your space sparkle. It's important to be thorough because you're not just wiping away dust and dirt - you're also getting rid of the stagnant, negative energy that's been holding you back.
4. Take a break.
Once everything is squeaky clean, take a moment to look at your surroundings. Everything looks better, but pay special attention to how it feels. You should feel lighter and calmer right away.
5. Bring in some beneficial energy.
Now that you've cleared away the bad stuff, it's time to replace it with some good stuff. There are plenty of ways to bring in some beneficial energy, including:
- Smudging the area with dried sage leaves.
All you have to do is get some dried sage leaves (available at most herb shops and online), light the end of the sage stick, and blow out the flame so that the leaves smolder and release their fragrant smoke. Then, walk around your space and waft the smoke into the air. As you're doing this, announce that you're removing the negative energy and inviting a flow of good energy to take its place.
- Lighting incense and scented candles.
Simply pick out the scents that are most pleasing to you, and put them in every room. Some of the most popular scents are lavender, rosemary, lemongrass, sage, sandalwood, myrrh, frankincense, and rose.
- Using meditation and visualization.
Get comfortable and breathe deeply until you're in a meditative state. Then, envision brilliant white light taking over every corner of your space. Watch as it crackles with an electric charge, zapping away all of the negativity and leaving peace and harmony in its place.
Fortunately, this is quick and easy, so you can do it anytime you feel your space becoming heavy and sluggish!
- Getting clear about what you want next.
Personally, I'm not one for smudging an area with dried sage leaves, lighting incense and scented candles, or using meditation and visualization (at least not in the way I just described)), however, I know those who are and thus mention them.
The number one, best way I know of to bring beneficial energy into your life is to get real clear about what you want next in your life. A crystal clear vision of what you want next instantly brings order to your life and, as a result, peace, harmony, success, and happiness.
That's what I do and suggest you do as well!
