Talking with friends recently of their desire to de-clutter their homes, reminded me again how important it is for us to detach from things.

Unfortunately, de-cluttering requires more than sending a few items to the local charity shop and convincing ourselves we’ve gone all Zen and have de-cluttered our home. De-cluttering means removing everything we’ve accumulated around our home; in wardrobes, drawers, cupboards, garage and shed - that we don’t truly need or totally love. You know the sort of thing; old magazines and newspapers; extra cooking utensils and small appliances you don’t use; old and expired toiletries like makeup, nail polish, and medicine; anything broken you haven’t gotten around to repairing; all those ornaments; excessive Christmas decorations; excess bed linens beyond two pairs per bed; far too many shoes or bags; books; extra cutlery and kitchen paraphernalia; glassware, crockery, pots and pans; unfinished projects; clothes that no longer fit, are out of style or were a mistake in the first place; old technology like VHS tapes, DVDS, old phones, music tapes, records and CDs. And how many tea towels do we need! Do we really need all those kitchen appliances visible on the bench top? And how about all the bottles of stuff visible in the bathroom?

If you’re serious about returning home at the end of this incarnation, then it’s time to detach from everything. But don’t panic, you can still have things - read on.

I recall that following our Landrover crossing of the Sahara and black Africa, my daughter and I returned to the UK realizing just how little we needed in life. We had lived so simply during that period and after returning, even putting on makeup, dressing up or fixing hair seemed superfluous. It had been a great feeling of freedom to just be. We had experienced love and acceptance everywhere across Africa from people who owned almost nothing and yet were happy. They lived without property, envy or judgement. They had no patterns about being overweight people or how they were dressed. What happened to our society?

There are many reasons we hold onto things - maybe past life patterns; need for safety or comfort; we experienced a lack in this lifetime (perhaps were poor or lived through the depression/war years);  having something rather than nothing; to acquire self esteem or self worth through ownership of property; an ego desire to show your value;  an obsession; you moved house and are overwhelmed by the amount of stuff that no longer fits in; anxiety or depression; beliefs about a lack of abundance and no doubt many other reasons.

Check how attached are you to the items in your home - or indeed to anything? See how much is superfluous to your life by asking yourself about each item ‘Can I let this go?’

Look through your house and see what truly needs to be there for you to be comfortable and include things you love that enhance life. Then look at all the rest! When you reach a point where you could honestly walk out and leave it all behind, you’ve attained detachment - in that area. When you’re at that same place regarding everything in your life, including family and relationships, you’ve come a long way toward being free from the 3D world and able to leave at the designated time.

It doesn’t mean you can’t have things around you. What it does mean is you can’t be attached to them. You can technically detach and still have them. But you can’t pretend you’ve detached! You need to really do it properly. Test yourself. Ask yourself if you can you walk away from it all now - truly? Anything around you can’t bear to let go is an attachment. Also those items around you that contain dense energy - i.e. those things not emitting a high frequency vibration, also need to go. They are not in the same high vibrational band as you. Examples would be old objects, games, crockery, clothes, furnishings or furniture (often dark heavy wood) that has a dense energy. They need to go now! No excuses! And it’s a good idea to make sure your partner and family are on board with the de-cluttering goal and aren’t objecting or sneaking things back in.

I have suggested this before - be intuitive and surrender to divine order (so as to be correctly led) as you walk through your front door and slowly proceed through each room noticing whatever is no longer a part of your life now that you are in a new higher light frequency vibration. In other words, the items that are not supporting us but dragging our vibration down. And it is pointless going through the house, having already decided that everything will feel right to stay, just because you can’t bear to let go it go.

People complain sometimes about our ‘throw away society’ where it is cheaper nowadays to buy a new product rather than fix it. That idea may seem detrimental until you realise there is a higher picture to everything! And the reason this is occurring is part of the plan and is a positive help to the Earth. All new products being made of course produced in the current light frequency of the planet, which is ever increasing. So, getting rid of things and replacing them with newly made items greatly assists the Earth to raise her light frequency for all humanity. There you go, now you have an excuse to go and buy new clothes and a new TV! There is a plus to everything.

Aside from the detrimental effects of having old and dense energy and dark items in our home, we need to also understand that living in a cluttered space with things scattered on every surface and items spilling out of drawers, where we probably spend time searching for lost items or finding places to put things, is not conducive to our well being. A cleared tidy home equals a clear orderly mind. Try it and see the difference.

Detachment and freedom.

Love and blessings,
