I have an old habit of regularly checking my house with the goal of donating what is no longer useful to me. I can’t say when I developed this practice, but I notice that over the years it has become more active, especially when it comes to my clothes. Every time I buy or win something new, I’m already looking for an item to get rid of to make way for something new that’s coming.
I do this because it makes me feel so good and organizes my head. When my closet or when things at home are out of order, it causes me a lot of anxiety and worry. By donating the objects and clothes that I no longer use, I feel that I have made room in my mind.
I don’t have a ritual or set day to do this cleanse. It is a constant process. If I see something in my wardrobe that I haven’t worn in a long time, I think: “Why should I keep this? Surely there is someone else who can enjoy this piece much more than I can.”
The same goes for other places in the house. I don’t like to leave broken objects, broken electronics, or burned out light bulbs. This creates an atmosphere of negligence, and my impression is that the environment is getting worse. When the house is clean, I am happier. Although I do this very intuitively, I have always believed that there must be a deeper explanation for this sense of relief that detachment brings. Out of curiosity, I decided to listen to experts who could tell me more about it.
Secondly Cris Bevilaqua, a crystal feng shui consultant, our home is a reflection of all areas of our lives. Therefore, leaving it cluttered or accumulating objects, even if it is in one room, can affect different areas of our life such as financial, social, health and relationships. “In our house, work and success are in opposite corners, but complementary. If someone keeps the work section neat, but the success point is messed up, they’re probably working hard, but they’re not moving forward, they’re not succeeding,” says Chris.
Kelly Curcialeiro, an environmental therapist, told me about the importance of this practice to keep the energy flowing. “When you clean the house and leave only the essentials, the change in your life is impressive. You feel better, everything fits better, you have a sense of fluidity and you still leave room for the new in your life,” she says.
New Year’s Eve is a good time
This time of year is very inviting to roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. And there is a reason for that.
According to Chris, December represents the end of the cycle. “January 1 is the day of universal fraternization. Regardless of race or creed, people mark this date on the calendar, which makes this moment a very strong energetic landmark,” he says.
So why not take advantage of the date to get rid of what we no longer use? “With this act, we send our
subconsciously the following message: I will not take what will not serve me for the next year. I’m going to start a new cycle with only what’s important,” says Kelly.
what is worth going for
In my case, I don’t have a method or rule for getting rid of things. It’s all very intuitive. But I asked him if
was there a better way to do it? Both said there are some items that are unanimously on their to-do list:
- objects brokenthey send a message of scarcity to our subconscious. If you vibrate in scarcity, the universe will send you scarcity and not prosperity,” Kelly says. Non-working electronics also deserve a
evaluation. If they can be fixed, don’t waste your time. But if they are unused due to lack of use, donate them immediately.
- Dry and dried flowers they also do not fulfill their role of making the environment more beautiful and harmonious. The best thing to do is to get rid of them.
- The clock is standing on the wall it can stagnate your life. Replace the battery, wrap it or repair it as soon as possible.
as quickly as possible. If it has stopped working well, throw it away.
- Broken mirror, no way. According to experts, mirrors work as an energy portal. if they exist
broken, they can greatly compromise the energy flow of the home and therefore our lives.
- Photographs of the dead should not be exposed at home. Better to leave them in albums or a souvenir box.
- ancient medical studies🇧🇷 Just keep the most recent so your doctor has a basis for comparison. It is not necessary to preserve the complete history of the last decade.
- Outdated food, medicines and cosmetics shelf life should also be deleted. But remember that it should be managed properly so as not to harm the environment.
After doing this cleanse, Kelly suggests doing an energy cleanse. “Put some coarse salt in a bucket of water,
indigo and camphor (which can be bought at the pharmacy). Mix everything and move a piece of the inside out of the house, thinking that all the memories are released. Then light some incense or holy wood, thinking of the good things you want to achieve in the coming year.”
In addition to the energy problem, which is fundamental, this cleaning brings the additional benefit of making the house more beautiful. “THAT
it is proven that people who live with beauty are happier. Beauty has a higher energy frequency,” says Chris Bevilacqua. “Have more love for your home because it will reflect in all areas of your life,” Kelly concludes.
