Get Rid of Clutter ~ Live in the Present ~ Create More Joy

Clutter it stagnates energy. It inhibits productivity. It actually inhibits you from living in the present. Why is it important to live in the present and how does clutter prohibit this? Living in the present is where joy resides. If you want more Joy, Look to the present moment. It’s right there ~ always. Simply aligning the energy within you and around you will show bring you joy ~ and abundance. 


When we live in the present moment, we are not looking at all the challenges on the horizon and becoming fearful of them and the ‘what if this’ and the ‘what if that’ of the situation. When we stay in the present, we are solving the challenges here and now ~ working on creating soul-utions that set us up for success. We are striving to find answers and that energy flows into us. Energy of solution oriented work. It’s here that Joy exists. We are not looking at fears or challenges but at possibilities ~ at solutions. The more you operate in the land of possibilities, the more you find them and the more joy you have. It’s imperative to live in the present possibilities of life. 

How does clutter, inhibit staying present? 

Clutter does not allow you to stay present. looking at it and living around it actually draws you into it’s energy. It drains and distracts you from the task of present possibility. The to-do piles are always facing you and taking you int the future! Consider the worst culprit of this ~ the pile of bills. If it sits on the corner of your desk when you are working on another project, it’s within your vision. How can you stay focused if you have bills to pay facing you ~ literally? They draw your attention and your energy AWAY from the present moment. When you don’t live in the present it’s difficult to be productive and near impossible to stay in joy.

Decluttering and creating positive and loving energy  in your home or office is the first step in your ability to say present. When you live without clutter and arrange things where positive energy flowing, Feng Shui is the art of creating positive energy flow in your home. It’s a process of decluttering, arranging great flow and keeping that flow moving throughout your space. It becomes easy to stay focused and in the space of present possibilities with this energy flow. It’s easy to have joy find you!!! 

Staying in Present possibility opens you up to the energy of future possibilities. Opportunities flow to you when clutter does not surround you. The impact of your space and it’s surroundings are vital to this energy flow.
