Clutter is stuck energy. We live in a world that encourages us to buy as much as possible and to clutter our lives with ‘stuff’. Apparently, the more stuff we have and the bigger and shinier it is, the more valuable we are and the better our lives will get. But is that really the case? Well, In this article you’ll get to know. Below are 6 good reasons to let go of clutter and live a more simple life;
1. Clutter Takes Life Out Of You
Since everything is energy and energy needs to flow freely, by cluttering your environment with stuff, and by refusing to let go of everything that no longer serves you, you create a lot of stagnant energy, not only in your environment, but also in your body and your life. And this stagnant energy will eventually take the life out of your life.
2. Clutter Keeps You From Focusing On What Truly Matters
Contrary to what you were led to believe, you are not here to gather a lot of stuff. Nor are you here to dedicate your life to serving and taking care of all your material possessions.
You are here to know yourself – to learn, to grow, to love, and to evolve – mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. But if you get fixated on all your stuff – wasting your time and energy to nurture and take care of all that clutter, you will have little or no time left to focus on the essential aspects of your life; no energy left to engage in activities that are meant to help you discover who you truly are and why you’re here on this planet.
3. Clutter Says Nothing About Your Value or Self-worth
The stuff you have, the material things you possess, and all the clutter you have been accumulating in your life up until this moment say nothing about your value or self-worth. It only shows that you are someone who likes to gather a lot of stuff.
4. Clutter Enslaves You
If you look at your life right now you will discover that you are the one who has to take care of your clutter. And not the other way around. Surprise, surprise – you have become a slave to your clutter.
The many things you bought to care for Yourself are now demanding that You take care of Them. And instead of You owning them, They own you!
5. Clutter Keeps You Stuck In the Past
It causes you to constantly look back at what was, tricking you into thinking that the story of the past is the story of your life. And that you have to continue to craft your life from a place of fear and limitations – the past, instead of doing it from a place of infinite choices and possibilities – the present.
6. Clutter Keeps New and Better Things From Coming Your Way
When you clear and let go of all the clutter that is present in your life – of everything that no longer serves you, you automatically make room in your life for something new, for something better to come along.
