Like twisting in a yoga pose to bring new perspective an old problem, I strangely twisted one of my patterns the other night by putting a piece of open clutter into my closet, which has very little clutter, and it is bringing a whole new perspective and insight with it…

I’m an open clutter person – I like everything out in the open for me to see and deal with.  But it does tend to pile up when life gets a bit overwhelming.  I’m guessing this is the same for those that like their clutter hidden.  Because our living space is a reflection of our mind, decluttering is a means to also free the mind of its clutter.  I tend to head to my closets and hidden spaces though, strangely enough, even when the piles are climbing on my kitchen counter or energetically keep me out of my office.  The last time I couldn’t see my countertop, I headed to the garage and cleaned that up.

The other night I put some long-standing clutter into my closet, and the next day I puzzled over the move a bit.  Why did I move that framed picture into the closet suddenly when it has been sitting there on the floor since I moved in rather than hang it or toss it?  I’m not sure, but the movement of energy it created from its stuck energy and a broken pattern, if only for a moment, was enough for me.  Now I see it as a wonderful possibility for me to get out of some old patterns.  I’m going to try to hide all my open clutter.  It’s going to be painful, I’m sure, but I think it’s the key to conquering the clutter in my living space.  I do function better in clear, open, clean spaces, but I am better at actually getting rid of things that have been out of sight for awhile so to conquer my clutter, it’s time to hide it, for at least a bit. We’ll see…!  I’m enjoying the movement of energy though for sure already…
