Cluttered Closets

Today I was listening to Louise Hay after a long time and I liked the idea of her saying that people with cluttered closets and fridges have cluttered minds. She says: It is symbolic and people with cluttered closets reflect a cluttered life, and so we should all take some time to clean them.

Now, I’m not a freak of some kind who goes organizing my closet every alternate day. You may laugh, but I know some people who do it on a daily basis and I absolutely love them for their dedication. Why? Because I lack patience arranging my closet. I’m lazy (only) when it comes to organizing my closet. I would rather spend time arranging and dusting my bookshelf or read a book than do this. I mean, what’s the point of arranging the whole closet when I know it will soon be a cocktail party of pajamas, t-shirts, jeans, skirts, trousers, dresses…sitting all together inside my closet and some even peeping out of the closet door.

However, it’s only the closet space where my things get the liberty to be scattered. My house is organized…spick and span…my fridge and kitchen…are always sparkling clean…my laptop nicely done in folders. Everything else is so organized that I can call from a different location and guide the other person to find my things (in a step by step process) in my house and my laptop (I’ve done it so many times…successfully).

Anyways, when I heard this… it went on like a beep and a message was received inside my head. I need to clean my cluttered mind closet. In the past few days, I had seen some long lost thoughts and emotions finding me and poisoning me with their negativity. I always try to abstain myself from any negative thought or negative people. People can be avoided or ignored (well, most of the times) but as the thoughts are self generated the only one who can help – is, oneself.

lotusSo I did, what I had not done, in a long time. I sat in complete silence – meditated for a while. Sitting in a lotus pose, I watched the negative feelings surfacing and opening like tea leaves in boiling water. Not holding or drifting with it, I just let it float in front of me.

The thought was of forgiveness. Forgiving, those who had harmed me knowingly or unknowingly in my past (as a child, that I don’t wish to speak about here or now).

At this moment, I visualized myself like a lotus opening up. I asked (and gave positive affirmations to) myself to allow and emit feelings of forgiveness and love to them.

When I opened my eyes, I felt fresh and peaceful.

I would love to share a few of my affirmations with you.

  1. I’m thankful to have met wonderful, positive and supportive people in my life.
  2. I’m thankful for being taken care of and being provided in the best possible way.
  3. I absolutely love and accept myself.
  4. I allow myself to let go off my past negativity.
  5. I allow myself to have a prosperous and an abundant life.
  6. I allow myself to forgive and love those who had inflicted me with pain in my past.
  7. I allow myself to have a happy, healthy and completely healed body and mind.
  8. I allow myself to enjoy my work.
  9. I allow myself to have a continuous flow of income in my life.
  10. I allow myself to move from poverty thinking into prosperity thinking.

If you want to read or know about how to introduce and work on affirmations you can read, watch or listen to  Louise Hay on her official website or youtube.

  1. Louise Hay do provide excellent affirmations. I did read and own some of her books until I discovered different ways of meditating and accentuin the positive. Thank you for sharing the goodness in you that arose from a steep tea.


  2. I really enjoyed reading that, Norma, because It told me so much about you. I do agree with Louise Hay on issues regarding clutter. But I wouldn’t just limit ideas to a closet (we call a closet a wardrobe in the UK). A cluttered desk, kitchen, car, or home in general, could make the same point. I also like your list of very positive affirmations following your meditation session. 🙂


    • Sorry, for the late reply Millie.
      I agree with you. My mom always used to nag me as a child to keep all the things in a neat and organized way. If I get 5 star for organizing and cleanliness she would get 10, so her standards and my standards never meet.
      When I heard Louise Hay on the matter regarding clutter I felt happy. I’ve meditating for a very long time and it has helped me a lot. Are you into some kind of meditation?

      • No, I’ve never tried meditation. My eldest daughter is though. She tells me how beneficial it is and urges me to try it. Perhaps I will, some time.
        I haven’t heard from you for a while. I hope everything is OK with you.
        By the way, are you still accepting blog awards, because I have a post to do this weekend? I’d love to nominate you… 🙂


      • Hey Millie, so glad to see you. 🙂 I know, I can’t tell you how much I’m missing my blogging life but I’m learning driving and so don’t have time for the blog. Only a few more classes and I’ll be a free bird.
        Is Louise the elder one? I do the same with my mom but she believe in prayers and thinks it to be the best form of meditation.:)
        I’ll be happy to accept the blog award Millie but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to do the post right away. Thanks for thinking about me Millie. 🙂

      • Don’t worry about posting right away. I’ve been sitting on this award for weeks! Louise is my fourth child. My eldest is Nicola (she’s 42 now – which makes me feel positively ancient). She has meditated and done yoga since she was a teenager. My other four ‘children’ are boys (men now, of course!). I’ll keep my fingers crossed that you pass your driving test. But if you don’t… there’s always a next time. 🙂


      • Louise is very talented. I enjoy her posts and photos. I had been following her for sometime but I had no idea that she is your daughter.
        Thanks for your best wishes Millie. 🙂 I’m positive about my driving test now that I’ve been practicing for so many days now. Finger’s crossed….^_^
