Our beliefs about our stuff and things can cause us to hold on to clutter or hoard. And sometimes self-rejecting beliefs or belittling beliefs that we got when we were children, can contribute to our clutter,
Beliefs that you developed as a child or even in adulthood kept you safe or helped you make sense of confusing situations.
For example, you may have felt unseen or unheard and decided this was because of something you did or because of a character trait, but that may not have been true then or may not be true now. Understanding where some of these feelings of insignificance took root can help you to make some changes in your beliefs and/or values.
We may keep stuff because it makes us feel important or because it gives us a sense of control in our lives.
By digging into the thoughts that are limiting beliefs you can shift your perceptions around your own ability to impact your life. And you may discover wonderful things about yourself. When you gain awareness, you may become amazed at how much your life can change.
