We as the human species have complicated our life so much. This is linked to the prefrontal cortex we developed in our brain over 300 plus years. This part of the brain is linked to organization, structure, and process. This can move us away from our intuition, and higher knowledge as those are more of right brain activities. We like to rationalize everything.

But truth cannot be rationalized that is why we are going beyond the mind in meditation. Complicating our lives keeps us in the realm of rationalization. To get access to higher wisdom and to find creative solutions, out of box ideas, we need to use more of our intuitive minds. Simplifying our life, and our thoughts give us better ways to reach our intuitive mind. It is time now for us to simplify our lives, release stuck energies, and make space for new, better things to come in.

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.” — Steve Jobs

It is time to declutter, and simplify. Your outer world is linked to your inner world. This is a spiritual truth. As you simplify your inner being, your outer world changes automatically. Also vice versa.

“Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” — Confucius

Some ways to de-clutter your Outer world:

  • Let go of things in your surroundings that you really don't need. Look into your wardrobes, cabinets, rooms, and working tables. Everything is made of energy, made of atoms. Things collect energy from people who visit the rooms. Things can collect emotions such as stress, anxiety, grief, happiness, and peace. Psychics can read what happened in the room just by sensing the energies in the room, in things < read psychometry>.

  • Let go of people that bring you down. If you cannot let go of them, see if you can decrease the amount of time you spend with them. Looking at life from a higher perspective will make it easier to let them go without guilt or remorse. Bless them and release them from your life. After all, we don't wear the same clothes we wore when we were younger. As you clear your wardrobe of clothes, it is good to periodically clear the wardrobe of your relationships.

  • Let go of situations, behavior patterns, and habits that are not serving you. If you are with a group of people and their conversations are draining you, or not interesting to you, walk away. People love to get together and gossip, focus on issues, focus on world problems, etc. I personally think if you are not participating actively in solving world problems then why waste time discussing it and bringing on more negative energy in the room? If you really care about these problems then say a prayer, ask for the divine to shed light on these situations, or find how you can support these situations positively. All the negativity you are sending out will come back to you multiplied a hundredfold. That is Universal Law, what you give is what you receive.

Some ways to de-clutter your Inner world:

  • Watch your thoughts. See if you can move away from negative thoughts into neutral thoughts or better still, positive thoughts. Keep a list of words that empower you, and make you happy. Switch your negative thoughts into these Switch words. Thinking of a rainbow always makes me happy. That is one of my switch words.

  • Use tools to release negative emotions, thoughts, beliefs, limiting needs, and desires. Your breath is a good tool and is available to you free of charge. Why do you think there is so much emphasis on breathing in many mind-body therapies, in meditation? Breathe out what no longer serves you, breathe in calmness, peace, harmony, or whatever positive qualities you desire. If you have access to more sophisticated tools such as energy healing tools (Reiki healing, Quantum healing) use this regularly. Don't wait for life to go downwards to use these tools. Do it when you are upbeat and life is going well. We have a lot of buried emotions from many lifetimes. When you are feeling good, you can dig deeper and release more. When you are down and using these tools, you will most likely in the best-case scenario come back to the earlier baseline of emotional balance vs going up to a fresher baseline.

  • Periodically visit a holistic healer to balance your energy field, to gain wisdom, and a higher perspective (Life coaching). After all, when you leave this Earth all you take with you is your energy field. So shouldn't that be the focus of your life? At a soul level, we all crave enlightenment and perpetual happiness. Every lifetime we can move closer to this goal instead of getting sidetracked by material desires and things. Learn sharper tools from a holistic healer. My mission is about empowering people and not just doing energy work on them. I want to teach my clients with tools, fresh perspectives, and higher consciousness wisdom along with energy work, hypnotherapy, and my other tools. If you combine working on yourself with working with me, you will accelerate your growth a hundredfold.

  • Focus on what is going right in your life, what brings smiles, what empowers you, and what makes this journey of life more fun. We all deserve to take breaks from all the hard work we have put in. Rest and recuperate as often as you can. Declutter your organs, drink more water, eat healthier foods, and detoxify your body. Focus on how far you have come in your life, congratulate yourself, and hug yourself often. Self-love is so much needed by everyone. We are so hard on ourselves. Take time to be kind, to be compassionate, to be loving yourself. Then spread this kindness, compassion, and love to others. What you give is what you receive. First, fill your cup and then share it with others. We are so busy doing things for others that we don't realize that we are depleting our inner cups and stressing our minds, body, and soul. First, nurture yourself and then nurture others. Like they say in air travel, first put the oxygen mask on yourself before helping your kids. Powerful spiritual message. I smile every time I hear it when I am flying.
