Could adopting an intentionally spiritual way of living be the secret to emotionally decluttering?
A woman’s emotional state plays a huge role in whether she will allow life to lead her, or conversely find herself micromanaging every aspect and person in her life. It can mean the difference between feeling fulfilled and feeling unsatisfied and empty.
Spirituality is a way of living that can bring peace, contentment, and simplicity to what once might have been a stressful existence. The space that spirituality can create in your daily schedule, has the potential to open up avenues for healing; where trapped emotions give way to a process of renewal.
Free The Emotional Body
Karen Whelan an Accredited Psychotherapist, Author, NLP Coach & Transformational therapist has conversed at length with world experts such as Dr. Joe Dispenza on what it takes to move stuck emotions and live from a place of deep alignment.
According to Whelan, “decluttering emotionally means to develop the resilience within yourself, to be able to hold space for your own painful emotions to heal while living, vs numbing or avoiding them.”
Clearing out the heavy emotion and weight opens up the connection to self and source – this process frees the emotional body, resulting in elevated states of health, mindset, relationships, and of course, career.
“If we do not heal our emotions and release them, they remain stuck in the body. As a result, we react to an event in the present moment from a body holding emotions from the past. Emotional decluttering, aside from offering healing benefits, offers peace of mind and a sense of contentment for life!”
Cultivating Calm In Uncertain Times
As we continue to venture into uncertain times and people are learning to navigate who they are and how they move through a new world, Camberly Gilmartin is bringing people back to calm. Her work as an Entrepreneur, Author, and advocate for a healthy conscious living has seen many women, men, and children cultivate positive change in themselves and their lives, through eating healthy foods, returning to nature, and living intentionally.
For Camberly, “decluttering emotionally is this sense of calm in the eye of the storm of life. It allows for a person to be centered, clear, and grounded.”
Intentional living is one’s ability to feel in control of the ‘day-to-day’ and thus bring about a sense of calm while releasing emotions and thoughts that do not serve you. Here is how to do it:
1. Nourishment of the body: deeply nourish your body with healthy food and hydration. Get out in nature and sleep well.
2. Attention to the mind: observe your mind, remind yourself ‘I am not my mind’. Remain in the present moment and stay in gratitude and the truth. Always.
3. Align your thoughts/words and actions: Only action creates an impact. “Your thoughts and words must consistently reflect your actions.”
4. Meditate to find and connect to your heart space: In the heart space, you will encounter the knowingness of unity and oneness. Connecting here is where you will find calm.
5. Repeat steps 1 through 5 daily.
“It’s always been important to declutter emotionally, however in 2022 it is critical for mental health. We each must take responsibility for decluttering our emotional states so that we may walk the path and inspire others by showing that it’s possible.”
Live The Richness Of Your Potential
“Emotional clutter like fear, confusion, anger, resentment, and grief, block our ability to hear our Inner Truth, so we end up speaking and acting in ways to protect ourselves that are not a true representation of who we are.”
Genevieve Searle, known as ‘The Optimisation Queen’ is a Wellness Reclamation Mentor dedicated to supporting clients in becoming their wellness authority. For Searle, Mary Oliver said it best with her quote – “What will you do with your one wild and precious life?”, and wants women to know “that living the richness of our potential, requires us to find the courage to declutter emotionally.”
Emotional baggage prevents us from growing and engaging. It can leave you feeling small, isolated, and exhausted. Learning how to shed the unhealthy patterns from our ancestors or our culture, “allows us to stand in our potential and share our brilliance with our families, communities and the world”, Searle shares.
Through the fusion of breathwork practices and body awareness women can “step up as the leading authority in their wellness and lives”. With “radical compassion and a belief that we all have everything we need within us” living the richness of your potential no matter the uncertainty in our world, is absolutely possible.
