We all want a suitable space for us to grow and flourish in.
Without room to expand, we will most likely stay within the confines of the current world that we see around us. Space is the gap where growth can happen!
And when we have space to think, we have room to step forward into the greatest version of ourselves.
Clutter-ification and clarification are antithetical and can’t coexist within our reality. This is especially true for those of us who are sensitive to our surroundings.
If you are someone who is easily influenced by how other people are feeling or the general “vibe” of what’s happening around you, then it’s more important for you than anyone to create a living space which makes you feel inspired and free. This video describes in more detail what it’s like to be empathic.

As a “Type A” neurotic and material Taurus, I am living in my own version of hell at the moment. I’m mid-move and furniture is being taken apart, so each room of my house is gradually falling into disarray one by one. Meanwhile, I’m really struggling to find a creative space to call my own. I have chosen for our bedroom to be the last room that we move out of, so that I at least have a small spiritual sanctuary amid the chaos of moving house.
We can spend a long time being oblivious to how our surroundings are affecting us – toxic relationships, over reliant friends and family, and a schedule which leaves us little time for thought and relaxation.
But when we open our eyes to what we have around us, then we start to see what we don’t actually need.
Your clarity of thought is so important for the gifts that you have to give to the world, and you need to see clearly how to implement them for maximum impact. If you are surrounded by stuff, then it can be hard to see past it towards the best path for your future.
If you want freedom of thought, then you will need to allow yourself some freedom from the taskmaster that is our own clutter. If you have already read about Feng Shui, Marie Kondo or minimalist living in general – then you will already know the benefits that these lifestyle changes can bring you.
If you want more freedom and less time spent tidying, clearing and cleaning, then having a smaller inventory gives you a chance to invest your time in things that you actually enjoy.
Set yourself free from clutter and enjoy the clarity of thought which follows.
It is sure to be a long process, but there’s so much satisfaction to be gained once you realise that you don’t need the things which are holding you back.

In the meantime – from the middle of my own moving mayhem – I wish you a very happy life filled with less clutter and more clarity.
