If you’re too attached to anything, it can create a problem.
In Buddhism, the key to all of life is non-attachment. If you don’t get too attached, you don’t fear, fret, stress out or act in frenetic ways.
Without these distracting, troubling, confusing attachments it’s believed that you head toward enlightenment.
Easy to say, but why isn’t it easy to do?
We’re all familiar with those quotes about loving people and setting them free to see if that love is real and enduring… but at the same time we hear story after story of jealousy, worry and overbearing neediness from couples every day.
We know that accumulating junk and stuff is not a good thing, but there’s an almost painful sensation that can take over when it comes to giving things away.
We know that attachment creates all kinds of problems, but yet it’s almost impossible to detach sometimes.
The thing about clearing clutter- beyond creating fresh space in your home and more peace and harmony and organization- is that the process of clearing forces us to tackle our deepest fears and attachments.
When you can really away clear things- and people, and memories, and obligations, and toxins and habits- you peel away the layers of stuff that stand between who we are now and our highest potential.
Freedom is the feeling you get when you let go of the heavy.
You can’t let go, however, if you’re holding on tightly to something… ir if you can’t even see the thing you’re trying to get rid of, or you’re spinning in circles.
While it’s abstract to talk about “letting things go”, in actual fact, you can release the stuck stuff that’s holding you back by creating a ritual and working on seeing more of a situation… making more peace with what is real and sitting in your life, unwelcome… right now.

R. M. Drake’s poetry strikes a self-reliant chord so perfectly. It’s one of my favorite moments on Instagram, to read bits of his art.

I love the idea of letting go of things, but… how, actually, do you “let go” of things?
That was the conundrum I faced before I understood how much we’re linked to our environment. Ancient wisdom and modern science have taught us that our environments deeply influence, and even mirror, our lives. By using some creative feng shui to lighten and brighten your life on the outside, you can drop some of the internal heaviness that’s weighing you down and keeping you from “the life that is waiting.”
Feng shui used in this way can be an awesome complement to therapy, self-development and spiritual practice. And, even on its own, it can be enlivening creatively, artistically, emotionally, and physically.
Yes, lightening up is a great thing to do!
Lighten and brighten your space, and you may find yourself shaking free of some stuff you feel is holding you back. Adding more lightness and brightness to life is extremely simple and fun. It may be disarming to learn how personally powerful it is when you try it for yourself!
Here are some of my favorite feng shui ways to lighten and brighten your space — and your life!

Today’s feng shui is a not-so-secret secret to making the big, extraordinary dreams you have come to life.
It’s next-level clutter-clearing. It’s simple. And, if you do it, everything you see around you will lift you up higher in life force and spirit.
It all starts with awesome and grounded clarity.
From there, fireworks and synchronicity and all kinds of awesomeness flood your life!
Show me a space with flowing organic fabrics, layers of chunky knit texture and some bamboo and I’m fairly sold on your style. Add in a dreamcatcher, balanced lights on nightstands and some fuzzy blankets and I’m in heaven.
Boho style elements work in every bedroom, from minimalist to maximum layers of design.
Even in the more “ornate” of boho spaces, the style itself is spacious. There’s a tribute to Earth. There’s a feeling of preciousness. There’s airy light and freedom.
Bohemian style is not for everyone as a total look, but even pieces… like the depth of a distressed wall that looks velvety and dreamy… works universally.
