I am thinking about an e-mail from Jinjee (www.thegardendiet.com) that I got last week.. I have had the day off yesterday & even with piles of things to do I had a chance to declutter & clean up bit. This idea of our attachments to objects and them weighing us down was on my mind. I have always felt like I would like to be able to put all my things into one backpack.. just a feeling I had & have held from when I was young. It has taken me awhile to get used to owning a house & having all these things around. Anyway, this made a lot of sense to me.
from The Daily Raw Inspiration - 10/10/06 Letting Go of Stuff
Im really enjoying my book -Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui- by Karen Kingston. It talks about how we have invisible strings between ourselves and every object we own so we should only own objects that have meaning to us. When areas in our house are cluttered it can block us from moving forward in our lives, literally draining our energy. I think this may be related to weight issues too. I just spent a few days going through the house getting rid of several garbage bags full of clutter and I actually feel physically lighter! Maybe letting go of stuff helps us let go of stress and other burdensome emotions - and the weight just dissappears along with them.
