I’m finding that this January, I am doing a lot more de-cluttering than usual. It has been very satisfying to get rid of things that no longer hold importance. I am donating a lot of things to charity which is great, but I’ve had so much to throw out as well.
Since everything holds energy, it is good practice to either get broken things fixed, or simply give away or throw out things that no longer function and that clutter your house. Each time you look at that broken fan that occupies the corner of the lounge room, the table with the wonky leg that you never use, or the cupboard that is overflowing with unworn clothes – you take on that stuck energy. It doesn’t leave you any space to bring in the new.
Some people like to use the cycles of the moon to help them with clearing out and bringing in what they want. For example – at the time of the Full Moon, it is a good time to declutter or even just clean. There are many articles on the internet you can read on this, but the basic principle is to work with the energies at the time. In other words, the current energies will assist you as you take action. Think of how the moon influences the tides - that is serious energy there!
Full moon is great for letting go, decluttering and cleaning. New moon is great for manifesting, bringing in what you desire and being open to receive. The process is satisfying in itself when you think of it as assisting you do what you would normally do.
Why don’t you try it out? Here is a link to a website that shows the dates and times of the cycles of the moon – just change it to your own part of the world https://www.timeanddate.com/moon/phases/
