If you’re having trouble hearing your intuition—the first place to check is your closets.
To heighten your intuition clear your clutter.
Check the basement, garage and the corners of every room for signs of clutter.
If you see piles of things stored in every nook and cranny in your home including over-stuffed drawers and cabinets you may have a clutter problem on your hands.
Clutter, aside from the obvious health issues of trapping dust and dirt, is also a problem for our intuitive development.
Too much stuff everywhere can be a reflection of a stuck, scattered or over-whelmed mental state.
When your mind is cluttered you will have a hard time hearing your intuition.
Our physical environment affects us tremendously. Too much stuff will block the flow of energy through your home and the flow of intuitive ideas through your mind.
How too much stuff blocks our intuition
Clutter is an outward sign that you aren’t dealing with your life. You’re afraid to let things go so you hang on to them thinking you might need something again in the future. Or you cannot decide whether to keep something or throw it away so you avoid making any decision at all and keep it along with everything else you bring into your home. After a while the stuff overflows from the closet onto the chair and the floor. At that point the task of sorting it out becomes so overwhelming that you literally do nothing.
Just thinking of this mess is too stressful therefore, you avoid it. You become a master at pushing away this problem and not dealing with it but, like it or not, it seeps into every area of your life. It pushes up against your psyche constantly wanting to surface, constantly wanting you to deal with “IT.” The emotional energy you must expend to keep this issue stuffed way down so you don’t have to deal with it is huge. You may not be aware of it but, it siphons off your energy leaving you even less motivation to deal with the mounting problem. Now your life is being held hostage by your stuff.
How are you supposed to be calm enough to hear your intuition when all your energy is being directed at muzzling this problem screaming out at you? It’s always there nagging at you to sort and clear it out. It’s also there as a red flag telling you that you’re not handling other problems – which you definitely don’t want to hear. The “not wanting to hear it” attitude snuffs out your intuitive voice as well, just when you need it most too.
Signs you might have a clutter problem
You can no longer “walk-in” to your walk-in closet.
You keep buying clothes because you closet it so stuffed you either can’t find or have forgot what you already own
You won’t throw anything out because you plan to someday have a tag-sale, lawn-sale or garage-sale.
Your garage is impassible and you no longer keep your car in it.
There are sofas, beds or entire rooms in your house you can no longer use because it’s become the “junk room.”
You stock pile certain household items such as grocery items to excess.
Clearing the clutter clears your mind
Find a good friend to help you and go through your clutter.
Ask if they can help you clear your clutter over one weekend.
Make a clean sweep of of it all.
If you haven’t worn it or used it in six months donate it.
Pare down to the essentials. You’ll feel a huge weight lift from your shoulders and when you do you’ll also feel an expansiveness in your chest and in within your mind.
When we deal with all our “stuff” both mentally and physically we will unblock our intuition and it will begin to flow again with ease.
Have you ever dealt with clutter in your home? Did you notice how much better and more expansive you felt after getting rid of it? Were you aware of your intuition kicking in again?
