Let It Go!

Clutter Create Mental Chaos

Mental Debris and Clutter

Everything that surrounds you will either provide you comfort or discomfort.

The choice is up to you. 

Take a look around your living and your work space.

Does this show harmony, joy or healthy wellness?

Or does it scream help me, I feel like I am being burried alive?

Energy is a State of Mind

We are all energy beings and energy flows to where the attention goes. This can be positive energy or unhealthy anxious, depressed energy.  

Our mental state of mind is like that. Imagine for a moment a candle; the candle lights up the room, but what happens if you remove the oxygen. The candle will eventually stop burning. This may be immediately or over a period of time. You are like a candle, and you need oxygen, space and free- flowing movement. However, if you are packed in your living and work space. You are like the candle and maybe pittering out and unable to freely live the life you deserve.

Forbes recently posted an article about how people are not thriving and are burying themselves with stuff.  This is a mental state of mind, rather than a necessity.

How often do you hear the term retail therapy? 

Go outside soak up nature. Disengage from everything; unplug from electronics and connect back with you. Nature is amazing and will help you feel calm, peaceful and connect to your heart and soul.

How Clutter and Debris Clogs Your Mind

People have become so used to stuff: the newest and greatest gadgets. All of this is to make your life easier. But come on, how often do you look for an item or have to move other stuff around. Probably more than you would like to admit. Or not even use the items you have, because you cannot reach it.

Sad but true for so many. Holding onto items, stuff, and hoarding is a mental state of being pursued into feeling safe. All too often this is about feeling safe and controlling your environment. 

The Mental Cost of Clutter

Sherrie Bourg Carter Psy.D. has written an article describing the preciousness of mental health and what clutter does to your body. One of the biggest statements that she makes is that clutter creates stress.

Yes, clutter can stress you out. You walk into a room that is messy, cluttered and this automatically sends out a stress s.o.s. signal to your brain. Your body’s natural defense begins and the negative ego starts talking: Abort, turn around and walk away. Unfortunately,  your ego may begin to internally beat you up about the mess and how you never clean it up: man what a loser.

Or, what if this clutter does not belong to you, but someone else you work with or live with. The same thing is happening; and because it is not yours, there’s not much you can do about it. I know, been there done that. Not everyone can see their faults or maybe they do not wish to address the deep inner issue.

Deep Inner Issue

Safety is a huge reason why people collect stuff. It is just stuff. Ya can’t take it with you. So, do these items that cause mental chao and stresses your physical body really need to control you?


Or there is a loss of a loved one, relationship and so forth. There may be trauma such as domestic violence. So, you hold onto stuff as if it is precious. Again this is like building a mental fortress around a deeper issue: Safety. 

You are safe.

In fact, for a year and a half, I have lived with only my clothes and personal items; that’s it. Ya know what I found. That the “stuff” wasn’t important. I am important: my mental and physical wellness is important. The clutter and stuff is not. 

Ultimately, how you deal with this is up to you. I hope that you find yourself able to remove debris, clutter and bring forth a mental wellness that lessens the physical stress that happens and you are happy, harmonious and safe! 

I will not allow anyone to walk through my mind with their dirty feet. – Ghandi

Mindful Meditation

Mindful Meditation

Mindfulness is a way of being aware.

This is another way of saying that you are aware of your thoughts, emotions or experiences on a moment to moment basis.

Oh so, you mean that being in the present moment stuff.

Yes,  this is the present moment idea, and you also do not have to be of Eastern principles.

Mindfulness 

Let’s break this down.

When you are being mindful, you are not practising this every waking moment. That is too much for anyone.

This is about being present in the moment for about 20 mins. I like to say 17 minutes. The human mind is active and focused for about 52 mins max and then needs a break.

The 17 mins can help you be in the moment and voila you are being  mindful.

17 Minutes at a Time

Just think,  you take a break every 52 mins,  and this can provide a way for you to be detached toLight Enters Dark Mindful Meditation an outcome. You take 17 mins to practice being aware of your surroundings, feelings and/or emotions.

Poof, you are being mindful.

This helps you relax and restore you.

Re-Train and Re-Wire

First of all, nothing is absolute, and it will take time for you to adjust your brain waves and thought patterns.

Be patient with you.

This is called metacognition and you are re-training your mind.

Yes, you may fail.

So what! Wipe the slate clean and start over.

If you were like me as a child, I was the queen of Do-Over(s). I would calll out Do-Over when something did not go my way or I made a mistake. Poof, it was done, no crying or worrying and I was back at it in no time.

Loosy Goosy

Have you ever read “Eat, Pray, Love” by Elizabeth Gilbert?

There is a scene in the book and movie where the character is trying to meditate.  That’s intense meditation. Now, do not get me wrong, I’m not making fun nor putting down this form of meditation. Notice I said form. There are many meditations and meditation forms.

It’s okay to let your mind wander with mindful meditation. This is also not to be confused with Transcendal Meditation which is more of a higher state of being.

Allow you to synergize with you, your breath and your heart beat.

Mindful Meditation

  1. Mindful Meditation Magical BlessingsSit comfortbly
  2. Notice your legs. Do you wish for them to be criss cross applesauce? Or if you are sitting in a chair, place your feet on the ground.
  3. Straighten your upper body to feel comfortable, not super sitff and not slouching.
  4. Notice your arms. Are your palms facing up or down? Are you resting your hands on your knees or clenching your fists. Please open up your hands and allow your hands to be relaxed.
  5. Soften your gaze. Do not try to “focus.” Allow your eyes gently close or fall down,
  6. Feel your breath. Feel your heart beat. They are in sync. Allow the air to flow to and from your mouth and lungs. This helps your heart rythm to remain natural and in a flow.
  7.  Be kind to your wandering mind. If your mind wanders so be it. Sit and notice where your thoughts go. Inhale and as you exhale come back to the present meditation.
  8. When you are ready to open your eyes flutter them open like a butterfly’s wings.

Angel Waratah Connections Tea Meditatio Prayer

Ten Minute Angelic Tea Prayer

Let’s take ten mintues with the angels.

No matter how you look at it; there is no one truer than you. This does not matter how you look, sound or act like;  no one can be you.

The Divine made you in the perfect form of you.

You can cry, pilfer and moan, and yet there is no on truer than you.

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” – Dr. Suess

Dark Cries

In my life, I have met with my own darkness, and I have met others darkness.

Those who wander are not always lost; so if ya need to roam and this helps  your soul- Go for it!

Unfortunately, the arena that I have worked in, while meeting others in their darkness sometimes is met with sad endings. Some people would rather end their lives than find a source of light to help guide them when they feel unwell and unwhole.

Self-Harm

As bleak at this sounds; it is also a dark place for many. Someone once told me they cut to feel; otherwise they would fade away; in their mind’s eye this kept them grounded. Yet, this is a unfloundering mistake.

Mistakes happen and not all who were once dark remain that way. Some arrive with peace and solace; but find a block that obstructs their progress.

Truest  You

There is no one truer than you!  You are the most incredible individual and just like in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life,” the world needs you. You have much to offer; and without you, the world misses out. Some may go on to encapsulate the whole world and some will play in a world that seems small, but means the world to another.

Help is But a Call AWay

Angels are only one call away; they will be here to save the day. However, unless it is a life and death situation, Angels cannot step in and help unless you ask; this is part of the Divine WiIl and Free Will. It may sound simple; just ask, But hey, maybe you have many times  thought about asking and just do not know how. No one is here to judge; lest of all you. Ask inthe best way that you know how. However, please be clear. The clearer you are the easier this comes to you.

10 Min. Angelic Tea Prayer: 

Hot tea work best.

  • Prepare tea as you normally do; I love using a special tea diffuser cup (I place my tea leaves in the diffuser cup, add hot water and voila).
  • Set Timer for 3-5 mins steepage time. While your tea steeps close your eyes and imagine your concern.
  • Pour tea in a cup or mug once the timer has sounded.
  • Take the cup to a quiet area.10 Min Tea Prayer Angels Meditation Help Connections Guidance
  • Wrap your hand around the tea-cup; close your eyes. Inhale, taking a deep breath.
  • Exhale and glance in the cup. Imagine your concern in the tea up. Take a sip. Swallow.
  • Close your eyes and inhale taking a deep breath and exhale.
  • Ask the angels for assistance, “Angels, Please help me {insert concern} and end with “Thank you Angels for assisting me, I am ever grateful.”
  • Continue to sip your tea until your cup is empty.  Please take your time. There is no race.
  • Sit in this quiet space and allow yourself to inhale a deep breath and exhale. Continue to sit in this space until you are ready return to your everyday.

May you be blessed with much Love and Light from the Angels. 

Oodles of Love, 

Natasha
