From Clutter to Clean-The Psychology of Our Possessions

Three part series to help you remove clutter for good!

In home design practice, we often list clutter as one of the obstacles for good flowing energy. Clutter will create obstacles in our spaces and spill over into our lives. Our clutter is a broken connection with our possessions. It is a display of our fantasy self, our dismantled relationships and dissolved aspirations.

Class One:  The Psychology Behind Clutter

Class Two:  What My Clutter Means and How to Work With It

Class Three:  Putting Strategies in Place to Combat Clutter

Clutter is psychologically all the stuff we’ve pushed aside because it was too heavy or we were ill-equipped to deal with the emotions around it. It is also sometimes a cry for rest. When we bring something into our home without a plan for how it will mindfully fit in with our daily visual life, it is detrimental. We develop an unhealthy attachment. Holistic interior design practice sets a healthier foundation and provides the opportunity to be intentional with our possessions. Learn how integrated interior design helps you attune to your space by using an eastern energy map and yin and yang forces. This will help you understand the past events which may have contributed to your clutter. You will leave this talk with a strategy to use in your own space with good possession-practice and a plan to remove your clutter for good!

Are you continuing to acquire stuff? Are you concerned about leaving too much for your family to take care of when you’re gone? Do you wish you could reclaim space in your home or garage? Does your clutter cause conflict in the family?

Research shows that we acquire possessions to take the place of needs which aren’t being met. This may occur over a long period of time. The result is an overwhelm of items which can be unhealthy. In this class gain some insight into why you keep the things you do and create a plan to start clearing what is no longer helpful in your life and keep only the things that bring you joy and have value. The first place we start is to start! I’ll guide you through some simple steps for clutter clearing and creating a system that works long-term.
