- Start by doing one section at a time. Even if it is one section a day for a week.
- Take everything out and clean the cleared area.
- Start by putting all the things that you love and feel amazing in back into your wardrobe.
- Then slowly go through the other clothes, asking yourself questions like, When was the last time I wore this ? Do I feel comfortable in it ? Why would I want to wear something that doesn't feel amazing weather it is to garden in or go out to dinner in. No different.
- By taking the time to feel what to let go of and what to keep in your wardrobe, your wardrobe reflects you. It will always feel lovely when you go to select something to wear as it is reflecting the loveliness of the person you are. You will feel you in your wardrobe.
Before I start preparing a meal I like to make sure the space is clear and ordered. I love taking time preparing food. By taking the time before I start to cook to read the recipe and have a little plan I then feel focussed and everything just flows.
I love cleaning while I'm cooking. Having order in the kitchen as I cook creates a flowing space and an ease. That way their is no rush, no push just a natural flow that is reflected in what I cook and how yummy it is. Having the sink full of hot water as i'm cooking, and washing up as I go. Not leaving a pile of things to be cleaned at the end. This makes the whole process very relaxed and joyful. And it is so lovely to sit down to a meal together and know we don't have a lot to clear after we
We can all arrive at work looking very professional, polished, and business like. But do I take all of me to work with me each day. This may sound strange. But if I am getting ready for work each morning thinking about a thousand other things, then I am not taking the power of me with me. I leave not feeling solid.
When we truly connect with ourselves first, and take that powerfulness with us through out our day, we will always be able to cope with whatever comes our way. Because we have a inner strength that can’t be bought or learnt from someone else. It is a strength that we carry with us, all of the time if we just stop and connect.
By taking the time preparing myself for my day, having my room all organised and my clothes put away, it is easy to select an outfit without having to look for things. It can also be as simple as setting out all that I am going to wear that day so that when I get dressed I am focused and not rushing, every little detail is building a stronger me. I am not taking more time to get ready, I am just taking more of me getting ready. You will notice that time starts to stand still.
I instantly feel the difference in the way I hold myself as I walk. The way my body moves with me. How I can feel the way my clothes sit on my body, that feeling of every thing being in its place.
I glow from the inside out.
Try it and see how you go!
I have always felt that my cupboards were about a lot more then just my cupboards, they were reflecting what was going on for me at a much deeper level. Not just a surface thing. Sometimes even though my cupboards are already tidy, I would still feel at times that I needed to go through them to get rid of things that were no longer me, a feeling that there was something in them that needed to go. I recently went through my wardrobe again, letting go of a bag of clothes that no longer felt like me. Even though the wardrobe did not look that different, it was amazing to feel the difference when those few things were no longer in my room.
Each morning I start my day with little rituals, I close the blinds in the lounge room that get the morning sun, then I open them after the sun has gone over. Then in the afternoon I close the blinds on the windows that get the afternoon sun. This little routine has been something that I have always done. In winter at about 3.30 I go around and close up windows and curtains so that the house will stay warm. These little self loving markers are so lovely to feel, they are the little things that help me to build a strong foundation. These simple little markers allow me to catch myself if I disconnect during the day. Markers that allow me to see when things are not simple and flowing the the house. When I have lost my rhythm.
