Continuing with my guest blogger, Tisha Morris as she provides great insights in decluttering the spaces we live in.  She begins this blog with a challenging question:
So how do we detach from our stuff? 

To make any permanent change, there has to be a shift in our perspective.  The way we view or think about something must change before there is a shift in our 3D physical world.  Clearing clutter is similar to losing weight – there has to be an internal shift before the weight stays off permanently.  But, also like clutter, you have to use some will power on the physical level as well – starting with eating less sugar or buying more things that you don’t really need.  In other words, the change has to take place internally and externally, mentally and physically.
In 27 Things to Feng Shui Your Home, I’ve provided practical ways to clear clutter and improve the energy in your home on the physical level.  What about shifting on the mental and emotional levels? 

Knowledge is power.  Knowing what and why we are attached to our stuff or certain items will oftentimes break the emotional attachment with our stuff.  For some of us, having a lot of stuff is simply a distraction from our everyday life.  A cluttered space results in a cluttered mind, which is exactly what some of us want, at least subconsciously.  In the same way alcohol makes things fuzzy, having a lot of things in your space will do the same.  And on some level, that is the desired outcome.  If this resonates with you, then bring awareness to it.  (If you are highly resistant to this idea, then you might want to take a second look.)
For many of us, it is certain items that are difficult to part with.  It may be books and magazines for some or old pictures, clothes, gifts, collections, etc. for others.  Either way, if you don’t love the item(s) or don’t use it, then it is time to part with it.  If you are still having resistance, then it’s time to acknowledge an emotional attachment to the item….
