How to Emotionally Declutter

emotional declutteringHow to emotionally declutter, my clients often ask me.

If you woke up this morning and went out into the world, you opened yourself up to grief and loss. Stunning statement? Stick with me while I say more.

We think of loss as something BIG. Catastrophe. Trauma. Tragedy.

And yet our daily lives are littered with small losses — and many times they bring up big emotions.

The project you slaved over and turned in, only to have your boss let you know it wasn’t good enough. FRUSTRATION.

Someone cut you off on the highway, causing you to slam on your brakes. %$@##!&&, you swear. ANGER.

Your friend never, ever brings up your mother who died two years ago even though she knows how much you miss her. SADNESS.

Your aunt is in senior living and you’ve been meaning to visit but life happens and you haven’t even called her. GUILT.

Your son is getting ready to go to college. You feel like you’re sending him off into the wilderness and lie awake at night wondering how he’ll cope. FEAR.

These emotions live inside us. No one ever taught us how to deal with them or let them go. The emotions you’re holding inside today have been with you a long time. You stay busy. You distract yourself. You watch shows. You hope that if you wait long enough they’ll go away.

I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news. Emotions don’t just go away. They try everything they can to get your attention. You know how your pet tries to get you to notice them: sitting up, ears cocked, pawing you, staring at you, making those whiny noises?

Emotions do that in a sneaky way. They leak out of you unexpectedly. A checkout clerk is insensitive and you’re suddenly hopping mad. Someone treats their sister unkindly and you get all emotional over it. A difficult topic is being discussed and you find yourself tuning out — that’s your fear being triggered.

What you need is a healthy way to release what you’ve been holding inside. Once you learn the simple tools I teach you in this session, you can use them for the rest of your life.
