I had no idea! But now, from own experience …
Here is a good place to remember that literally everything is energy. So all the stuff we hold keep and own, is also of different energies. And all though those different energies will mostly just depend on our own feeling connections to each of those things, they still clog up our energy, by hogging up space in our energyfield. …and as my mind is now making its inner eye image of that as I’m saying it, I do preffer the energyspace image where there is less strings/wires in it. …and I guess especially those from just things!, especially stuff I don’t even really use. …ew and more stuff is all more dust collections. …and that’s energy too.
But the discovery in personal experience went as follows. …years ago.
It was within the first year, of my independent-adult globetrotter life. I had just been through a “surprise abortion” in a foreign country, while my best friend, my life’s sister, went out with a guy who’s flirting with me had been the only thing making me smile and forget a bit about every hurting thing, including a long sad hard breakup. And while really, just to make it.even more careless, she actually had a crush on one of the other guys in his group.
We were all dancers, we were in Vienna, and it was winter. …beginning of February to be exact.
I was home, in the “working-class penthouse” dancers flat. Alone in the entire place, while my sister-friend was working, and the girls in the other room had all gone back home. Three of them to Portugal, and one to England.
I was deeply incredibly sad, but I had energy so to occupy myself with something, to not have too much space for my mind and heart in hurting sadness, I ended up fixing up the entire flat, re-organizing stuff and cleaning everything. And once I was done and started relaxing, then I noticed how I actually felt kinda’ good now, and looking at my whole sotuation in that moment, from that state of feeling, all my trouble and sadness just looked and felt with a better perspective aproach for myself, and that feelt better.
I felt clear about things, all in all it somehow made me feel uncluttered, and somewhat lighter and brighter, to clean up. It just felt as if what I had been doing in the outside around me, my sytem had been imitating ~ doing inside of me, so to say.
But however and whatever, the effects made me feel good. And I ended up having a good and beautiful time, the rest of the 4 months in Vienna.
And years later,
something similar with a similar inner impact happened while living on ibiza.
While I had been away for 9 months, the friend I had trusted with my house on the island, had betrayed me with the rent I was sending, so that in the end I owed some 15.000,- just to get my things back, while the owner had now already rented my house out to someone new, and was keeping my personal stuff bellow the house. So as I stopped working and returned to the island exhausted (from the past months having been hard and useless) and pretty much emptyhanded, and so I stayed for another two years time without my belongings.
But when I eventually did get my things back, suddenly while so to say intergrating my stuff at home, which was mostly just clothes and such, I noticed a really odd feeling on the 3rd day as I was unpacking and organizing. There was a very subtle difference in how I was feeling in general, in all the space I was in, all the space around me and in me, and how that had a slight effect over my whole general feeling constantly. (…thereby to my very beeing in fact of course.) It was a feeling best described as, …up until now I had felt all this freeflow and open feeling space, almost like world untouched kind of energy of possibilities. Totally opposite in comparison to how I was now feeling, after having my stuff back since a few days. Oddly enough I could feel very clear that it was the stuff, its accumulation.
Funny enough, all the happiest people I know, always want something new but never hold on to anything. And Yes they also Are always very generous people.
I am guessing that most of us know the word Zen, and associate some clean simplicity with it. …probably something good-feelin, clean and simple, and very neatly beautiful.
Among other nations and areas, the Japanese also have highly regarded forms of simplicity. Especially in their neat traditions regarding the spaces around them, rooms as well as gardens. Seems that it must be old wisdom.
On Another Personal Note two years of creativity flowing non-stop while obsessively into an own made project, being the whole time in highest gear durring times where my living spaces where physically just simple and comfortable, without an overflow of everything, and without stuff to store and such, except for my project stuff. And ok, on top I was living kind of in, ok surrounded by, the nature of northern ibiza. Waking up to views of stunning nature, and walking barefoot outside for coffe, feeling blessed and thankful, including to the very self of me, for having found and made Ibiza my Home years before. Who could stay non-stop in sadness all day in a paradise environment!?
It was the comfortable simplicity and nature that charged me!, into super flow mode. Functioning absolutely optimally and perfectly for what I wanted.
When I later moved with a husband type of boyfriend to Berlin, that very project didn’t fit life anymore, and so it was “put on the shelf” put on hold. But I still love that project. …so it just has it’s right time.
Cleanliness & Order is also one of the best habbits, always causing me to be making … keep creating, that very comfortable simplicity feeling environment. For having these habits I am lucky I am blessed, to be able to say, I am full of gratitude to my father and grandMother for those. Especially when I see how other people don’t have a hand on that first simple step, for oneself in and with ones own invironment, how challenging it aparently is for so many, just the very plain cleanliness and order, even when they want to they’re having struggle with it. When I see how many people are strugling with that Part of living, upliftingly easy, in and with and thereby from their own surroundings …their own soil, then I’m always a bit stunned.
Living in the big Artist Residence in Berlin, called Greenhouse for 2 years, once I had moved out I realized I was slightly traumatized and depressed with humans from the helplessness and destruction these so called artists were/are doing in this building. The whole two years there, I kept having some creativity block, and felt nervous and restless mental energy, like never before.
