The 30 minute intuitive throw out

Our intuition is a very powerful mind tool that can be used in many situations. My mother has a saying of “If in doubt don’t” which sounds simple but is very effective if used often enough.

Yesterday I spent 30 minutes in the house de-cluttering using my intuition. I randomly looked at things and ask the question “Do I need to keep it”? The first answer that came into my head was the answer I went with. Mostly the answer no came and second came the answer yes. If the answer maybe came then I took it as a keep. It amazed me how much stuff I could throw away. I felt really good doing it and was such an invigorating experience. We just don’t need half the things we have and these things get in our way and pollute our balance.

Why don’t you spend 30 minutes in your house and start filtering out things you don’t need using your intuition. Give it a go and let me know how you get on.

  1. i have been trying this – i moved about a month and a half ago. I am a self proclaimed pack rat. however, in my defense, it seems i have had so many past lives and i must keep something from each:) Seriously though, it is hard to throw away something from one’s past – 24 years of ballet, 21 years of fitness instructing, 2 boys – who are now 18 and soon to be 16 and my life as a triathlete and now a director of operations for a sign manufacturing company – lots of lives:)

    • Thanks for your comment. Really interesting. I think we can falsely get sentimentally attached to things. Once you have made the decision to get rid you will feel better. Taking a picture of things before you throw can help. Thanks for the comment. David

  2. I’m in the process of selling my house and relocating from the west coast of Canada to Virginia. Every single thing I touch I ask myself “would I pay to ship this all the way across the continent”. Surprising how often the answer is no! Decluttering at a rapid rate, but I like your intuitive method, going to start employing that this morning.

  3. I am obsessed with de-cluttering. I love this post!
    Thanks for liking my post and following. I look forward to reading more of your posts!

  4. Totally agree with this. It’s amazing how the strength of feeling we have for things fade over time so we get to a point we can say goodbye to it. I am moving abroad in 10 days and use this time as a declutter opportunity.

    I still can’t bear to part with my English exercise books from school though! Or my cross country certificates!
