Today was the start of decluttering my house, I feel like my house is full of stagnant/old/negative energies and feel it’s time to clear these energies.
On the 3rd Jan, I will have lived in my house 14 years and over that time as we all do I’ve accumulated stuff and this stuff now feels like it’s weighing me down.
The room I tackled today was my bedroom, A few days ago I had already taken some clothes out my wardrobe that I no longer wear or simple don’t like any more and put them in bags to take to the clothes bank.
I started with my make-up and jewellery – I have a lot of costume jewellery which I love but had totally forgotten about so am looking forward to wearing it again. I also found a necklace that I had lost a few years back which made me smile.
I did throw quite a lot in the bin, mainly stuff that I’d bought for fancy dress and was really cheap and I know that I’d never wear it again, lots of bracelets where the elastic had perished so beads went everywhere, I had planned to keep the beards and use them for something else but in the end, I knew I had to be ruthless and get rid of them.
Lots of makeup went in the bin too, old stuff that again was useless or colours I would no longer wear.
I bagged up loads of T.shirts and clothes from my chest of drawers, threw out any socks that had holes in them and old knickers that were threadbare!
As I was doing this I opened the window and also burnt some sage incense to again help to clear the old energy out of the room.
I went through my handbags too and donated a few of them, the task for the next clearing day is to go through my wardrobe properly and clear out my shoes.
It felt good to be taking action on something that I’ve probably sat on for months, I know this is going to sound obvious but I’ve come to the realisation that if I want my life to change I need to change and put in the work so that’s what I’m doing from now on!
