Bringing Sunshine inside my Basement by De-cluttering

Recently, on an absolutely gorgeous sunny day in the fall here in Vermont, I made a decision to do something that in the past I would have never dreamed of doing… I took the whole day to completely clean out and de-clutter my basement.

You see, in the past I would not have been caught dead doing something like this in a dark basement on a sunny warm autumn day in Vermont. I would have been outside first thing on a 10 mile trail run, probably followed by a long mountain bike ride in the afternoon with friends, and a cold beer to finish off the day to make it feel ‘complete’.

The thought of being inside on a day like this, cleaning and organising a basement utility room and closets filled with boxes and boxes of various things that take hours to go through and sort out, would have felt like a nightmare to me back then.

After attending a number of Universal Medicine presentations, I came to realise a few years ago that my drive to fill my time with activities like sports was just a way to distract myself from feeling an emptiness brought on from not feeling like I was enough as I was. Thus I used these activities to ‘prove’ myself and identified myself by them. But today my life is very different, and I find satisfaction and completeness in the simple things in life, because the empty feeling has been replaced by a daily practice of self-loving acts and practical ways to re-connect with my body throughout the day. This has naturally brought about a greater acceptance of myself no matter what is going on in my life. I now feel there is nothing to prove to anyone.

So right after breakfast I set out to go into the dark, virtually windowless part of our basement and slowly but surely sorted through every box filled with various home and electronics equipment, junk drawers of desks filled with ‘stuff’, cleaned, organised, threw away things not used in years, and cleaned again, until at the end of the day I felt like it was complete for now.

I was left with a space that felt much cleaner, organised, orderly, and in general, lighter. Later, I would refine this even more to match my level of commitment to the project, and, I feel, to life in general.

To me, the power of committing to doing these simple and loving tasks that bring order and spaciousness to our homes is directly correlated to the level that we commit to serving others in our communities. If we can make a decision to change one simple thing about our homes, and feel how it helps things flow better in our household and lives, then maybe we can start to see how helping other people around us is both a needed and an enjoyable activity.

So on that day I was able to bring that outside glorious golden sunshine inside my basement, and more importantly, inside of me, filling my body with light and a different kind of daily purpose. It almost felt like cleaning out my basement was also clearing out space inside my body, so I was able to see how such a seemingly mundane task could hold a greater purpose in my life. I thoroughly enjoyed the whole process without for a minute feeling like I’m missing something by not doing some activity outside. The lightness inside me had matched the brilliant light outside, and I felt a greater spaciousness inside my body. I finished the day with an herbal tea with my wife, as my drinking days are forever gone. This whole experience of de-cluttering my basement has led to bringing more order to the rest of our house, and therefore a deeper spaciousness to our home.

I deeply thank the inspiration of Serge Benhayon and the offerings of Universal Medicine for showing me a way of living that has finally shown me what being LOVE truly means.

  1. There’s nothing like a clear and uncluttered and beautifully ordered room, it’s like when you sort stuff out you have so much more space for clarity… the way we keep and take care of our rooms has such a large impact on our lives. It’s incredibly worth it to take the time to ensure our spaces are spacious.

  2. The great part about this article is how committed you were to bringing simplicity to the whole of your life and not just satisfying a functional outcome that looks good but perhaps has no real substance to it.

  3. I just also wonder if, when we know we need to do a clear out but hold back from doing it, the lack of activity serves us in some way because we then don’t have time to do what we should be doing or ask the questions we should be asking? Just a thought.

  4. “Later, I would refine this even more to match my level of commitment to the project, and, I feel, to life in general.” This is a great example of starting somewhere, we go to the level that works for us at the time, what we can emotionally and physically cope with. Way too often we don’t start a change because we can feel the backlog of what needs to be done and therefore the backlog actually continues to grow.

    1. Yeh I love that philosophy too – it’s great to see a task like this as not having an end point but as something that develops as we develop.

  5. Even clearing out a small drawer and reorganizing it with love brings a lightness. It’s great to have a whole day to spend, but it can be done in smaller chunks too. Otherwise I was always waiting for the right moment to have enough time to clear out a big space. Just begin!

  6. De-cluttering is such a great feeling and process to go through. One that can be done time and time again, as we grow, evolve and expand so to does our environment also so it becomes a forever deepening process.

  7. Reading about the alternatives like the 10 mile run followed by a mountain bike ride caused my heart to contract whereas reading about the spaciousness that you created in your body with the decluttering brought about an expansion in my heart. It was very obvious which one was harming and which one was healing.

  8. My take home from this is, “To me, the power of committing to doing these simple and loving tasks that bring order and spaciousness to our homes is directly correlated to the level that we commit to serving others in our communities.” wow, a reminder that whatever we do has a knock on affect and it clears away any cobwebs of truly seeing what is there to see in our homes and community.

  9. Letting go of things that are no longer needed is almost like weightless – as the kilos strip off you feel weightless and more free to move.

  10. I have the greatest fond and love of decluttering OR I love the feeling of the precision in the order. Each day is an opportunity to continually refine the order. It is a ritual and rhythm to my life. My life has become ceremonious in the simplest of tasks. This weekend I completed the organisation of the owner’s house shed where I am living. Order is order – I continual amaze myself each time as I full embrace the ordering – it completes perfectly everytime. The trick is to order the big stuff first and know everything that needs to be ordered. It brings a rhythm and a structure that holds your life together successfully.

  11. I think there really is something to appreciate in the simple and loving tasks we can do around our homes, cleaning and re-organising things that are actually genuinely powerful in effect.

  12. There is a definite difference between replacing a feeling of emptiness with activity that is distracting, and the genuine re-connection with one’s body that fills your heart with joy.

  13. We humans live our lives in such contained sections, somehow thinking that what we do in one section of our life, does not affect another part of our life. But this blog shows that is simply not true. There is only one life, and everything affects the all. A cluttered basement affects how we are in the world, how we engage – especially the quality of energy in which we engage. Once you cleared your basement, you cleared space in your body and then you take that to the world. We are so more connected than we think.

  14. Ah yes Michael – this de-cluttering is so good. And yet my mind seems to tell me there is no time or space to do any of this. ‘I’ll get to it another day’ I like to say but know this is a lie. But I see now it all makes sense – a cluttered life = a cluttered space, and no space for clarity and truth to be. So I feel now that these big cleaning days are essential for me.

  15. What a revelation that is that we can fill up our diaries with activities and appear engaged in life, but actually all is distraction and we are distancing ourselves further away from the true joy of being in life.

  16. “So on that day I was able to bring that outside glorious golden sunshine inside my basement, and more importantly, inside of me, filling my body with light and a different kind of daily purpose.” This is so wonderfully inspiring. It’s great to be reminded of how we can create space for more light in our body simply by taking care of daily tasks.

  17. The whole de-cluttering experience is such an amazing feeling, I de-cluttered my bedroom only a few days ago and threw out many clothes I was hoarding for years. I had so much energy and vitality after this – such an expansive and lighter feeling throughout the whole house now making space for the new – I highly recommend it.

    1. I always find it interesting when we keep clothes for ‘just in case’ I like it or put on weight or loose weight and need to wear it again. It’s almost like, we are holding on to an old outdated identity of ourselves, just incase we need to pull it out and use it again.

  18. There is a great feeling of lightness and spaciousness when we declutter, discarding what is no longer used or needed and how much our body responds so that it is quite a revelation to understand how much our body is affected and reconfigured when we hold onto things to fill a need or an emptiness.

  19. Very cool how feelings of emptiness disappear without us even noticing, the more we make life about purpose, and accessing that purpose, that sense of just knowing what’s needed next, from our bodies. As we learn to stay present and focused on the task in hand, life starts to feel fuller, more spacious and more connected. It becomes less about the task and more about how we are, the quality that we are bringing, to that task.

  20. ‘It almost felt like cleaning out my basement was also clearing out space inside my body’. I can relate to what you have shared here Michael because when we clean, declutter and reorganize our homes we can clearly feel the difference in the before and after.

  21. Beautifully shared Michael and so simple, bringing the light and spaciousness into your life and home and realising what we can bring to others by our process of de-cluttering within and without.

  22. What a glorious way to bring ‘sunshine’ into your home Michael. It makes so much sense that when we clear out all that that has been languishing unused and unwanted in our homes that we make a space for the light to come on in. And as you have, I too have found that the new sense of lightness in my home is then reflected in my own life. Definitely worth spending the day inside for.

  23. “This whole experience of de-cluttering my basement has led to bringing more order to the rest of our house, and therefore a deeper spaciousness to our home.” When we de-clutter one area of our life we are inspired to let go of the stuff that has accumulated everywhere else.

  24. I love de cluttering our house. It always gives the next layer to look at, to refine again what we need to keep and to give or throw away. It directly collerates with our bodies.
    The way we are with our house is how we are with our bodies.

    1. That is what I have found – there is a reflection in my body of the work I am doing with the space around me. How simple is that for a communication from our body?!

  25. “Recently, on an absolutely gorgeous sunny day in the fall here in Vermont, I made a decision to do something that in the past I would have never dreamed of doing. I took the whole day to completely clean out and de-clutter my basement” – isn’t it interesting Michael how the introduction of love shapes our choices and so the entire course of our life. De-cluttering to clear over enjoying a sunny walk – it is what precedes that gives us the later joy : )

  26. If everything is a reflection of how we either live in connection or disconnection to our inner essence, it makes perfect sense that clearing out clutter in our houses makes space for more depth for that inner connection.

  27. I love feeling the lightness, clarity and spaciousness in my body every time I have a clear out when I choose to let go of things that I no longer use and equally enjoy feeling the harmony restored within the space that has been cleared.

  28. Interesting how we think that cleaning a basement or being inside on a sunny day is a waste of time. But the feeling greater connection, openness and space inside your body tells a completely different story.

  29. I like how you wrote that the first round of de-cluttering felt complete for now. Quite often we can push ourselves to complete something in full the first time round, but the simplicity in which you present that it was complete for now, feels spacious and loving, and then you will complete the next round later. Feels like this brings a halt to the relentless drive to finish it all at once.

  30. ‘The lightness inside me had matched the brilliant light outside, and I felt a greater spaciousness inside my body. ‘ Beautiful Michael, it is amazing how cleansing and enlightening a declutter is.

  31. Thank you Michael, I enjoyed reading about your decluttering day and the deeper sense of purpose you felt, that it was in fact like a clearing for your body and life, and therefore a service in itself to the greater whole – humanity.

  32. And just like cleaning can at time be a bit of work so too can clearing our own patterns, issues and hurts. It can be seemingly easier and more comfortable to stick with the old familiar ways of avoiding them but the awaking love and joy within you that awaits more than satisfying.

  33. It’s interesting Michael experiencing the difference in completion being through an event to ‘top or finish something off’ as opposed to feeling it/a completion from a spaciousness that’s there inside the body.

  34. When we are honest about what does not feel true, we then can create space by letting go of the density we hold on to, that actually holds us back from surrendering to what is true, as such allowing us to instead magnify the true light of who we are – love, through our bodies and the lives we live.

  35. Inspirational Michael to read how you have appreciated the effect something like clearing your basement has on not only the basement but on the whole house, on you and the relationship with others and your body. Such a powerful confirmation of the choices you have been making that led to this sunny day inside and outside.

  36. This is a stunning testimony of where your choices have supported you to realise that a great day, is a day you do what you feel to do. The belief that the weather should somehow dictate our day is actually crazy. I know when I have fallen for this, I end up regretting my choice to go to the beach and wish I had of organised myself for the week ahead. To be truly evolving, we must learn to listen to our inner compass.

  37. Thankyou Michael. We know so well the feeling of wanting a reward or treat at the end of a day, and that may be a variety of things but the principle is the same. By seeing our days or moments as continuous opportunities of purpose, not to achieve but to see potential in the world, then this is asteady way to being satisfied after a day of hard work.

  38. Our movements mirror our purpose for living and how we de-clutter our houses is a direct reflection of how we feel within. We can bring sunshine as you say into all areas of our houses and we can reflect that same sunshine from our bodies movements too.

  39. Allowing myself to see “my drive to fill my time with activities like sports was just a way to distract myself from feeling an emptiness brought on from not feeling like I was enough as I was.” This is great Michael, and finding that when the sports are gone filling the emptiness comes in many virtual realities along with a host of other distraction to keep us from our divine connection or inner-most, so our emptiness is filled by who we are in essence.

  40. “The lightness inside me had matched the brilliant light outside, and I felt a greater spaciousness inside my body.” This is lovely Michael it just shows that more happens than we realise when we clear out and make space in our home it can be felt in the body, and opens up the possibility for others to feel it too.

  41. “It almost felt like cleaning out my basement was also clearing out space inside my body, so I was able to see how such a seemingly mundane task could hold a greater purpose in my life.” Thank you Michael for sharing, I am inspired to clear out my wardrobe which I have been resisting for some time, which will give me a sense of clearing the resistance I feel in my body at times.

  42. I love to clean and clear things out and how this supports forward is a huge thing to feel. More and more I can coming ‘home’ to clear and clean things out. It’s not that every moment is in the basement but there is a dedication to realising that it’s all connected, everything is everything. So there maybe poles apart for how things that are physically but the connection can be felt if we choose.

  43. I am in the process of moving home and appreciate how much has changed in regards to material items and how effortless it is to be able to discard items that are no longer needed. In the past I would have held onto items given to me from relatives past or small keepsakes but now feel they are no longer necessary and only have items that are supportive and serve a purpose in our home. Discarding items we no longer need also offers us a reflection on what we are willing to hold onto for emotional values or to discard to feel the joy and spaciousness we are already.

  44. Beautiful Michael, so supportive, I am choosing to make my life more simple too, ‘ I find satisfaction and completeness in the simple things in life, because the empty feeling has been replaced by a daily practice of self-loving acts and practical ways to re-connect with my body throughout the day.’

  45. Decluttering the basement is a very foundational thing to do as basements are under our living quarters. Any declutttering at all brings with it a lightness and sense of sunshine and space no matter what the weather is like outside. Thank you Michael I am off to do some decluttering myself now.

  46. Recently we had some frequent strong typhoons hitting our city and for a few days we had to stop activity in our daily work and normal life and stay home. That was so exposing as I felt so uncomfortable to have to stop and do nothing, it felt like I was trapped inside. The honesty that I was forced to face was how I truly felt if I did not have something to do to earn me recognition and if I could still commit to life in the same manner? Quickly I felt this could be a day of catch up in work, and I could have gone that direction, but there is something more, I was asked to rest and feel. Do I allow myself to feel everything that is within my home, when there is no where I can go to avoid feeling it? I chose to be inspired and felt what was truly needed in these days of typhoon and obediently followed the call.

  47. How wonderful to bring order and detail to our daily living and feel the commitment and purpose that takes place.

  48. Thank you Michael, like the sunshine you mention in this blog, your words shine in on my day, and make it clear in a beautiful way, that whilst I might not run marathons or do competitive sport I have used busyness, personally and at work to achieve the same effect: total overload of the nervous system, to the point where it’s hard to feel anything. Your words give me courage to step back from overwhelming myself and start to clean up my day-to-day junk.

  49. There is much we are able to let go of when we choose to declutter and simplify our life, the ensuing feeling of lightness and spaciousness in our body is very freeing and empowering.

  50. I love this Michael, ‘because the empty feeling has been replaced by a daily practice of self-loving acts and practical ways to re-connect with my body throughout the day.’ Beautiful, and what a difference this makes as you showed in this blog.

  51. Great sharing Michael. Decluttering our house has a effect on lives and our bodies. Because even when don’t see the trash, or things that no longer benefit us that is stored in a room or in a cupboard, we can still feel it.

  52. Michael, as we are connecting to the decency and respect we have for ‘the environment we live in’ then we can de-cluttering as you are sharing, which brings about how amazing we can be when we come to completion in any area of our life. Then when we apply this simple purpose as you have and by being connected as we complete these tasks we expedite our evolution. So what am I talking about when it comes to connection? My understanding is that we have an inner-most heart and that is a connection like no other connection because it is us re-connecting to divine creation, which is us moving towards heaven.

  53. Your writing speaks of commitment to a certain quality of life that is spacious and free from imposition, and how this can be chosen without condition and without need, just a simple choice to create more space.

  54. It is amazing quite how much stuff we hold onto in basements, attics, cupboards, store rooms and rarely if ever will use again. It feels like a dead weight holding us back in many ways. I know as soon as I do a clear out it feels hard to do but a relief abd freeing for my body saying bye to the old and allowing more space for what is before me.

  55. I recently had a de-clutter of old photos and files on my computer. Amazing how much I cleared out and how much ‘lighter’ me and my computer feel.

  56. ‘To me, the power of committing to doing these simple and loving tasks that bring order and spaciousness to our homes is directly correlated to the level that we commit to serving others in our communities.’ Great observation Michael and it makes sense that what we do and how we live in one area of our life flows into another. In truth there is no separation between the different domains of our life at all – they’re one and the same. What we think we hide or keep separate from the world is still in the world and will be felt in us, even if we pretend otherwise.

  57. Cleaning and clearing space is one of the most invigorating and liberating things to do in my experience… the feeling of clarity and spaciousness is very good for our sense of wellbeing.

  58. Going through my home at intervals cleaning out areas that can gather clutter allows me an opportunity to also make space within me. It is so true Michael that doing this means that we too feel lighter, more open and loving.

  59. The clearness and space we can bring to our homes sets a foundation of clarity that feeds us back in more ways than we know.

  60. Today I was explaining to my employees we work in the cleaning how the way we prepare the cleaning and how the cleaning car is prepared by order or not has an effect on the way we clean. The same as how we leave our house when we go to work has an effect on the way we will be easy to handle all. Chaos creates more chaos in many ways. Care and love and order creates more of that beauty. We make our life easy or difficult by the way we deal with it.

  61. This is the 3rd blog comment post I’ve read this morning on de-cluttering. I’m definitely feeling inspired to do a bit of a clear out myself.

  62. Ah exquisite Michael – this is the work of the true Son; one who knows and is connected with the eternal flame of love that burns within us all, and is able to harness such light to affect the space around him/her.

  63. Beautiful how you acknowledge when we fill our time up with sports and hobbies, we are just filling up empty time when there is so much more we can do. I loved how you made more space for yourself by clearing your basement out, I could feel the expansion as I read your blog.

  64. Clearing our old stuff is definitely one of the best ways to prepare for what’s next in your life. I love doing a mini version of this in my bedroom every week or two, total clean out, rearrange, throw things out, I feel so ready for life after doing this.

  65. Thank you Michael I love how you say ‘ I was able to bring that outside glorious golden sunshine inside my basement, and more importantly, inside of me, filling my body with light and a different kind of daily purpose. . . . The lightness inside me had matched the brilliant light outside, and I felt a greater spaciousness inside my body.’ Shining the sun inside – that is exactly how it feels to me too!

  66. Thank you Michael this is a timely reminder of the lightness and spaciousness felt when we commit to de-cluttering as I am planning to do this in my home over the next 2 days. Having put it off for too long I can feel the stagnation this clutter is bringing to my life and not allowing for simplicity and flow.

  67. We really can fill our lives with many many distractions, “I find satisfaction and completeness in the simple things in life, because the empty feeling has been replaced by a daily practice of self-loving acts and practical ways to re-connect with my body throughout the day.” but when we fill them with connecting back to self and then living from there, the distractions are less and don’t hold onto us as much.

    1. We ‘fill’ space because we do not want to live it – space being the ‘Body of God’ and thus the beholder of the Universal Intelligence (love) that we come from.

      1. Ouch but true Liane, we ‘fill’ space in ourselves and our bags, desks, closets, basements, houses etc. are just a mere reflection of the choice to live as only human instead of to live the glorious divine essence we are.

  68. I now love clearing out my house too Michael, I feel such an ease with it, and love the order and lightness it brings. For me a weekend now is great when I get to clean my house, and I’m not shy about sharing that anymore either … years ago I would have considered this so boring and yet now I feel a deep sense of completeness in me, another level of coming home when I take care of my living space and what is in it. I now couldn’t imagine it any other way.

  69. Michael, thank you for sharing such a simple but inspiring experience on how de-cluttering can be so uplifting and energising! Cleaning and decluttering our house, home, garage, basement, cupboards, fridge etc, can be a very detoxing experience – no different to going on a physical detox program or a diet! Time and time again I have felt how unnecessary gear and disorganisation can weigh me down and sap my energy. It is something I regularly do now – clean out and cull areas as they build up and I have found that the more I do it the easier it is to keep on top of it and also not allow it to build up either!

  70. To leave something incomplete leaves an obstacle which prevents the natural flow and harmony that is present everywhere, all the time. It feel so good to complete things, even the smallest of details, for in doing so we are strengthening the flow of harmony which then supports us back to be able to bring flow and harmony to things that may take more effort, commitment or focus.

  71. The connection of doing a household chore with feeling better in our bodies, is one I would reckon virtually everyone understands, yet also, most of us would not see reward in it. Which brings the question, what is a reward really, can it ever be rewarding to do something that does not make us feel better, feel like our body is truly supported. Like watching a netflix marathon, it sounds appealing to most of us, but is that only the case if we don’t discern how our body’s respond to such an offering.

  72. I’m sure your old self would have looked at a project like this and thought you were absolutely bananas! But I know what you mean about the satisfaction of clearing out old stuff. It is so therapeutic, very healing, and brings a spaciousness that is so welcome. It’s also supportive for living daily life well, especially the area of the basement which is the foundation of your home. I bet you appreciated this for a long time afterwards.

  73. Our connection to our divine vehicle can not only bring spaciousness and expansion to our movements but from those movements it offers a quality that is sunny all year round.

  74. It truly is amazing to feel the difference and clarity de-cluttering brings and the spaciousness in our bodies is notable too. Reflection and awareness for the energy in which we move also plays a large part in allowing ourselves the space and time to honour ourselves to de-clutter. It is a reflection of the level of care in which we will go to, to reveal the true lightness and harmony we hold within.

  75. It is beautiful to feel and appreciate the lightness and spacious we feel in our body when we have committed to letting go of the ‘stuff’ that we have been holding onto. A great reflection here to see the relationship between the two and how the heaviness we feel in our body from what we have allowed in to clutter it up naturally lifts when we make the choice to let go.

  76. Michael this is lovely story to read – choosing to live in a way that you no longer need to prove anything to yourself or another. What joy to read of your light and spaciousness now being felt in your body and home
    “This has naturally brought about a greater acceptance of myself no matter what is going on in my life. I now feel there is nothing to prove to anyone”.

  77. It is amazing how much time and energy can be used up in trying to prove our worth. And I can find myself caught in this without even realising it, but the tiredness and fatigue that follows is usually a pretty good sign that something has gone amiss…

  78. A very lovely feeling in the home and in our bodies when we have cleared out, made space and brought order. It’s no longer a burden in the basement but a real pleasure to walk into that room and feel the change.

  79. A beautiful sharing Michael, thank you. When we are connected to the deliciousness of who we are within, no task is mundane in my experience, for as you say, we take our sunshine with us wherever we go.

  80. “The lightness inside me had matched the brilliant light outside, and I felt a greater spaciousness inside my body.” Beautiful Michael, and just goes to show when we are truly with ourselves it matters not where we are or what we are doing, the lightness and spaciousness that we are affects everyone and everything around us.

  81. “I now feel there is nothing to prove to anyone.” – this is really powerful because it comes with a freedom to honour what we feel instead of designing our day according to what we think will get us recognition from others.

  82. I have recently been clearing out my home and I am loving the pockets of spaciousness I am creating. It is not something I have tackled in one day (as for me it felt like that day would never come) it has been one step at a time and it too feels much cleaner.

  83. Oh wow. What I am getting here is that I may think I am having ‘my’ moments, doing ‘my’ stuff, but really, everything I do, every moment I breathe, it is not possible to do it just for myself, it is for everyone – and it’s not even a choice. It already is.

    1. I love what you shared here Fumiyo and if we all could connect with the level of responsibility that you are proposing here, there would be much less ‘checking out’ behaviour in the world (like watching TV, video games, zoning out on our cell phones, etc.) because we would feel how much power and purpose we possess to use towards helping humanity get out of the mess it is currently in.

  84. ‘I was left with a space that felt much cleaner, organised, orderly, and in general, lighter’. This is in reference to your basement Michael, but it is also in reference to your body. I always feel amazingly light after a deep clear out.

  85. I love coming back to this article, it is so inspiring and enlightening. I have several sheds around my home that have held discarded or, ‘it will come in handy or be useful one day’ items. I am gradually clearing them all and it feels so liberating. I also love how you get to realise here that we don’t have to be outside to enjoy the sunshine, the sun can shine as equally within us and how awesome that feels.

  86. Michael a timely read for me as I have recently gone through all the boxes I have stored in my parents garage for 3 years after breaking up with my then partner. What the hell was I holding on to I asked myself? I have since done 2 car boot sales and gotten rid of an enormous amount of literally just stuff! I feel soooo much better about it and so much lighter for having made such a huge cull.

  87. I can relate to much of what you have shared Michael – believing that I had to be outside when it was a sunny day, making the most of it, otherwise I would think that my day was not lived to the fullest. Gorgeous to feel how your commitment to work through that which no longer serves holding on to in your house, brought an expansiveness and clarity that was also reflected through your body, that now is filled with the lightness of love. This too I can also relate to. For when we move with the knowing of the love we are within, we move in a way that always offers expansiveness and the freedom to all be all that we are in full, wherever we are.

  88. I love that after completing something that supports you and your home deeply, the benefit of this was confirmed through you getting to feel the lightness and spaciousness inside your body. There is nothing so small or mundane when it comes to cleaning or clearing out that can’t have a remarkable healing affect when truly appreciated and embraced.
