This First Step Is To Know What Style You Passion . . .

Once you know the style you are going for, the rest is fairly easy – the shopping, measurements, placement, and so on . . . Sometimes you have more than one style that you love, that’s okay I like to incorporate the styles by color, texture or pattern something that will make the eye flow through the room – not keeping making pit stops.

Lifestyle Mini-Magazine . . . Coming Soon

Hello,

I am creating a mini-magazine to be posted here once a month. As you can see this cover is from July 2020 . . . where did the summer go?

We have been downsizing our life since March 2020 in order to live simple, I will be sharing articles on how we got this done, how to navigate yourself through this COVID-19 Pandemic, how to declutter your spaces, how to set-up a remote and education stations in the home so you can be ready when school or work is shut down due to outbreaks.

I will have articles about the meeting industry, how we can help with small intimate meetings, where to find venues, how to design social distance in-person meetings . . . I know I’m not the only one Zoomed-Out!!!

If you have suggestions about what you would like to see in this mini-magazine please do not hesitate to reach out to me – I love hearing and sharing ideas.

How do you want to live in your home? With peace and quiet or with joyous noise? Most of us would probably want a balance of both. If your life swings between solitude and craziness, it’s possible you have created neither the space for peace or joyful noise.

So with the checklist to follow let’s take a look at your home logistics to uncover the physical issues that your home may have.

As you go through the checklist and exercise to follow, you’ll be training your eye and mindset to see your home in a brand-new way by breaking it down into Zones.

It would be much easier to make decisions and changes about the clutter when you’re still in the planning stage than when your life is in total chaos by construction work. Separating the WHOLE into easier workable ZONES makes it easier for your home to function in a logical purposeful rhythm.

How To Create a Home That is BEING

French Farmhouse 6

Our homes are mirrors of ourselves. They reflect our importance, our character, or indecision, our spirit and our desires. Our homes tell a story about how we feel about ourselves and the world around us. A home is more than just a place to lay your head and seek comfort from the elements. Your home IS A BEING, it’s the essential nature of how we combine our spirit and soul to attract energy or drive away energy.

Everything is Energy – if your home is full of clutter it is driving away good energy. Your home is not separate from you, it is an evolving Being of you, and the home members. Learning to bond with your living spaces can contribute to creating a life that is balanced and in harmony with the positive energy of all that surrounds you.

Here is the process I have used for the last 20 years to help clients sort through their clutter and bring back the positive energy into their space, and find the Being of the home. As you are going through each zone (areas) of the home – Pick up each object, make a decision of Trash, Keep or Recycle box. There are going to be items that will need to be transported to others zones, they need to be placed inside the Transit box. At the end of sorting in that zone, take the transit box and relocate the items to the decided zones. If any of these areas are already full because you haven’t cleared the clutter yet – leave the items in the Transit box until you complete those zones.

Decide now that everything that takes up the space in your home has to have a valid purpose of Being there. Ask yourself “Does it pass the Clutter-Test?”

The Clutter-Test

Does it lift my energy when I think about it or look at it?

Recognizing whether you feel energized or not is the most reliable part of the clutter test. Your mind will invent all kinds of excuses so that you get to hang on to the stuff, but your body knows the truth and never lies. Trust the feeling in your body!

Do I absolutely love it?

If so, does it inspire me or is it just nice? Do I already have enough of this type of item for my needs? Does it have sad association in my life?

Is it genuinely useful?

If so, when did I actually last use it? (I have a one year rule) When will I realistically use it again?

Is It Safe To Let Go

Repeat to yourself as you sort through your items, “It’s safe to let go“. Clearing clutter is about letting go and trusting the process of life to bring you what you need when you need it. Anything you are keeping for those “just in case” moments, you are keeping out of fear. If you have a lot of clutter, you may need to go through this process several times before you feel ready to ‘let go’ of some things.

In the past, I have had a few clients wanting this process to go quickly – having a hard time making decisions of letting go and getting frustrated with themselves. They would then keep canceling our organizing sessions making it even harder for when we would have to restart the sorting process. I finally would convince them that working in a positive – small – forward motion worked better than consistently restarting the process. I would suggest 2 Organizing Sessions / Per Month for a year. They would be surprised by the compounding effect of getting rid of the clutter at each session, most of the time it would take less than a year to clear clutter from their home.

At the end of the clutter-clearing process, not only will you be able to breathe easier, but your home will have a new life and a new BEING.
