1.excellent question...I sometimes get a pang of "does this contradict my religion" although I am very liberal about my spiritual choices...
2. FOLLOW UP QUESTIONS!
OK so I decluttered a lot of paper. That's good.
Boxes of it. House is still very cluttered. I tried to stay with my painful feelings as they came up.
Then I came down with a urinary tract infection which I have now.
(Could this have anything to do with always putting the toilet seat down which I tried for a few weeks but have now stopped since I pee every 5 minutes?
Dr. Christiane Northrup says urinary problems can symbolize feeling "pissed off" and releasing angry feelings from the body. So I am trying to figure out what I am angry about. When I was a kid anger was not allowed! So maybe I attracted clutter to protect myself from my feelings? And as I release it all that old blocked anger comes up? Ponder, ponder......
Money has seen a bit of an improvement! Trying to keep the prosperity corner clear-ish (now that I'm sick that will have to wait) and purple bedding.
I also find that when I declutter people then give me lots of their stuff, hand me downs, household items etc. Usually a lot of junk with a few treasures. Why do I believe I need to attract junk? WHy can't I feel I deserve only good things? And then I need to deal with THEIR clutter too. (While at the same time appreciating the treasures in the junk, but wishing people didn't see me as a pitiful charity case.)
Sick and can't declutter, frustrated about that, trying to use the time for feeling my feelings as they come up etc.
