So I’ve had the book, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, for like a year and a half now. I was excited to receive it as a gift from a friend and read one sentence or so, chatted with another friend about it, who mentioned a specific sock-folding process, and then put it on the shelf for future reference.
While browsing for CDs for a road trip at the library (I am old school like that), I found it and decided to try and just get it done. I had no idea what I was really getting myself into.
Clearing is an integral part of the energy healing process, and every spiritual person on the planet knows you have to keep your place in order. I talk about it in several of my programs, have been guided to tell clients to do it, and do it for myself, often.
HOWEVER, Marie Kondo’s advice in this book goes deep, and the way she has you do the program is truly unique. At one point I was thinking I should call my process whilst working this program, “The Life-Changing Magic of F$*k I Can’t Do This!” because it is truly all-encompassing and slightly overwhelming.
In this video, I chat about it a little bit. I made the video last week, and this week some other things shifted. I was guided to do a healing on myself regarding my issues with clothes – I love clothes, but rarely feel put together. In fact I often feel frumpy. Of course it dates back to childhood. So THAT felt good and I was able to part with several more items of clothing that just don’t work – clothing “shoulds” that don’t spark joy.
The place feels much lighter and cleaner, and because my husband did the program too, we have both noticed a new level of clarity in the home. The spice cupboard looks AMAZING, the closets are squeaky clean, and while Ivan’s toys are not 100% there yet (as I said in the video, I did not follow the program to a “T”), the air in here does feel lighter. Yay!
The book sold over 3 million copies so if you have one and have yet to do the program her way, I highly recommend you try it! It is great fun, in retrospect…I think. Well, at least it’s eye-opening. I am still working the process of relating to my possessions and I like that A LOT. They do carry our energy with them, and if we love and respect them, we are also loving and respecting a part of ourselves and our life process here on earth. And that is pretty amazing, right?
