Once again it is the festive time of year. With Diwali round the corner all we have in mind is deep cleaning our house and decorating it to welcome the Goddess of wealth and of course our family and friends. There is a reason why our festivals are associated with cleaning and clearing our home. Dig into deeper meaning and you will find that it is just a way to free our home and eventually our mind and soul with all the clutters we have gathered in a year. Though it is not at all surprising, but often we are unaware of these clutters we are living with.
Even Vastu suggest you to declutter your home for a peacefully content life and happy home. Clutter in the home blocks the free flow of energy. Stagnant energy means accumulation of negative vibes blocking the way of positive energy searching for a way to your home and life. Clutter is not just limited to holding the flow of energy in your home. It also blocks your mind, pollutes your soul, and brings your life to a point where you feel frustrated and stuck.
But then when we pick up to clear the clutter, we feel a connection with the physical items we have been holding, many a times not even aware that we own them.
It’s human to get attached with physical possession. Usually it’s not the material possession we are attached to; it’s the memory connected with the object that we are attached. Gifts from friends and family, favourite dress, half-used expired make-up, children’s toys, even the empty boxes of electronic gadgets… Isn’t it? Memories are made in mind and not in clutters. If you are not using it, it adds up in the pile to become a clutter. The reality is that if you haven’t used it in a year you are not going to use it again.
There may be countless items around us which no longer holds importance in our life but is still there because of our emotional attachment or maybe we are yet to accept that we don’t need it now. It is important to get detached and pave way for a new beginning. So why not start with it now. As the year is ending making way for a new year to take over, let’s declutter our home for a fresh start. To make your work simple we have prepared a list of ‘things’ which has now become a clutter in your home. Let’s check the list and declutter your home and eventually your life for a fresh beginning… Have a look!
