Simplifying Your Life

Simplifying your life may sound easier than done.  That is because when we decide to (truly) simplify our lives, the process has percolated in the spiritual sense.  Something has happened on the inside that is starting to manifest on the outside.  The truth is that we do not recognize this; we just feel the desire of simplifying our material lives and this is where we usually start.  Suddenly, we start decluttering our home and environments in which we spend most of our time.  We declutter our desk, closets, attic … and the healing begins.  This is necessary to make space on our cluttered minds and hearts to welcome the things that are needed for our healing.  This is a personal process, for some people, it takes longer than for others, and you arrive at this cleansing stage on your own terms and in different circumstances.  The important issue is that you arrive and let the growth begin.

What started as material decluttering suddenly transforms into spiritual decluttering as well, and the path’s design is personal – unique to you.  Each one of us are here on a journey – whether a short or long journey.  Many times, people watching you from the outside do not understand this much-needed cleansing and may think that you are going nuts, even try to dissuade you to hold on to your stuff – “Get a storage space,” they will suggest, “You will be sorry you got rid of that one day,” and some other similar remarks.  However, it is up to you – it is always up to you to continue your journey.

  1. Thanks for this post! I LOVE decluttering! I am currently working on decluttering my appartment so I can leave much easier with a service dog that is being trained for my anxiety. I find that my life is so much easier and more fun when things have a place they belong. I feel as though when my items have a place to be, I belong in my apartment. And I have lived in this place for almost 9 years now, and it’s just been in this past year that I can officially call this place home. I love giving away the items I don’t need to other people who could use them. Rearranging furniture so my apartment looks nicer, keeping the dishes clean so I am more apt to eat healthier! Thanks for the post 🙂 Today actually is a declutter day as I haven’t been well for a while! Thanks 🙂

  2. Yes, when there is order in an environment, it is more conducive to relaxation and focus, and helps inspiration and creation as well. Order is different things for many people, it is finding that balance. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Blessings and hope you feel better.
