Letting Go of What's Holding You Back
by Brooks Palmer
Unlock Your True Potential By Clearing The Clutter
PILES OF JUNK IN GARAGES AND CLOSETS, overflowing papers on desks, items unused for years, masses of unanswered email, clothing never worn, useless gifts that collect dust — all these things, says Brooks Palmer, come weighted with shame and guilt and have a suffocating effect on spirit and soul. In this insightful book, Palmer shows how to get rid of the objects that crowd our lives. By tossing out these unneeded items, we are also eliminating their negative influences, freeing energy, and unlocking our potential.
Loaded with inspiring anecdotes and practical tips, Clutter Busting is based on the premise that your things are not sacred, but you are. The book explores such fundamental topics as the false identities we assume through clutter, the fear of change those junk piles represent, the addictive nature of holding onto objects, how clearing clutter makes room for clarity and sweeps away confusion and stasis, and much more. With Brooks's upbeat and compassionate guidance, you'll find yourself clearing the way for new and exciting things to come into your life.
"Clutter Busting literally changed my life. Brooks's gentle yet firm voice inspired me to act, to widen my eyes and take a fresh look around —and undo pockets of clutter, not only in my closet and the trunk of my car but also in my heart. This book is filled with practical, useful wisdom."
