If you find yourself stressed out because your attempts to manifest with the Law of Attraction keep failing, then maybe it’s time to declutter your surroundings.
It’s a known fact that clutter is a symptom of stress and excessive clutter will be a distraction to you while attempting to deliberately create or attract something using the Law of Attraction.
Clutter will bring you noting but chaos because you are too distracted to focus on your true desires.
Think about it for a moment. How many of you come home from work or some other errands and the first thing you do is empty or pockets or toss the mail onto your kitchen table or counter-tops? Not once or twice, but every day like a vicious cycle?
You’re constantly misplacing your keys or the remote control for the television. Can’t remember where you took off your shoes or find that missing earring.
These are all symptoms warning you that it’s time to declutter your life.
Building up clutter is a long drawn out process, so don’t expect or attempt to make huge changes all at once. Take the time to evaluate what is really necessary then make the cuts.
Below you will find several life hacks that will help you declutter and reduce the stress that is blocking the Law of Attraction from working for you instead of against you.
As with everything I teach about the Law of Attraction, it is always working and in motion whether you want it or not but deliberate manifesting will always require you to take action.
Declutter your Home
The first place you want to start is in your own home. Start in the room you spend the most time in. For me, it is my kitchen. Every cabinet and every drawer was completely filled with gadgets and gizmos that I acquired over time thinking that they would improve my skills in the kitchen. I was mostly wrong because I hardly used half of those “things.”
Evaluate your situation by writing down how many servings do you actually need. Typically, you will hardly ever need more than 4 servings for dishes or silverware. Do you need a dozen coffee mugs or other cups? How many pots and pans do you really need?
Clear those cabinets and drawers (including that “junk drawer”) and toss anything that is hardly used into a box and set it aside for either donation to a thrift store or your own yard sale.
Next, go room to room. Start with the floors and make piles for clothes, shoes, and other items that don’t need to be lying around. Make sure to check under the beds and behind the furniture and even in the furniture.
I live in an area where we normally only have 2 seasons, hot and cold, so I look for the items I haven’t worn or used in the past 6 months and place them in the boxes that I’m donating.
Do the same thing moving upward to the table tops and counter tops, the dresser tops, the bathroom vanity tops, the medicine cabinets, and finally move on to the closet.
Use the same type of evaluation when you go into your basements and attics and then your garages or sheds and even your yards. Soon enough, your house will be decluttered and it will be time to move on to the next project.
Declutter the Car
You guessed it; time to declutter the car. You probably spend a great deal of time in your vehicle especially if you are a busy parent. The car becomes a catch with the idea that you’ll take care of it later.
Well, later is now. Time to clear out all of those fast food wrappers, empty soda cans and bottles, used candy wrappers stuffed on the sides of the seats, and all of those fuel receipts and losing lottery tickets stuffed in the side door compartment.
Don’t forget to empty out the glove compartment and center console if you have one. The only things that need to be in there are the user manual for your vehicle, the registration and insurance information, and maybe a pair of sunglasses.
Move on to the trunk or rear of the vehicle. This too becomes a catch all for things you rarely use but are always in the way and keeping you from using this space for other things, like groceries. Keep the essentials and things you use on a regular basis and ditch everything else.
Declutter the Work Space
Move on to where you work. It could be either your place of employment or your home office or desk where you keep your computer.
If you have too many thinks in your work space they become distractions and keep you from being productive.
I’m a writer and I used to believe that having a lot of eclectic items surrounding my work space would bring me inspiration when needed but it’s not the case, inspiration comes from within so I decided to clear everything except my monitor, timer so that I can pace myself, and my Peace Lilly plant.
The only thing above my desk is my Vision Board (I’ll get into that another time) but it is there for a purpose.
Decluttering your work space will most certainly reduce some stress.
Declutter the Smartphone and Computer
These two devices cause the most stress for many people because we keep filling them with useless or outdated information and never clean them out.
We fill them with apps and pictures and videos and create more chaos that we can handle. How often do you search your smartphone for a pictures you can delete because your phone’s memory is getting full?
It’s time to make some folders on your main computer and dump the phone images to clear up space. There is nothing more stressful to me than taking a picture but I can’t save it because there’s not enough memory.
Take the time to go through your phone’s apps and delete the ones you can live without, probably most of them. Then go through your main computer’s folders and delete all the non-essential items that are slowing it down.
Create folders to keep things organized and make a plan to dump your phone’s images at least once a week. It only takes a few minutes but this little life hack could make the difference between a happy moment and a not so happy moment.
Re-Evaluate Your Situation Once a Month
It will probably take several weeks to go through all the things I mentioned above but it will well worth it in the long run.
Don’t slide back into old bad habits. Schedule a re-evaluation at least once a month to make sure you are keeping up with a clutter free life. Schedule this time in the middle of the month instead of at the end or beginning when bills are due and other stressful situation can take over.
Once you’re life is decluttered, you will find that there is less chaos and the Law of Attraction will become more noticeable in your deliberate creations.
I’d really like to know how this works out for you. I know it has done wonders for me and allows me to live the Law of Attraction lifestyle I want. Let me know in the comments below.
