Mementos are tough...is it really treasure if it weighs you down and stresses you out?
Every client I have worked with in the past 15 years has eventually dealt with personal treasures. If we’re working together for the long haul, I suggest waiting to deal with mementos (including photos) as the last item on the organizing list. It’s WAY easier to handle items like books, clothes, and kitchen items. These items usually do not hold the big emotional charge of keepsakes. Most everyone feels burdened by this category, having NO IDEA how to winnow through and keep only the most precious of things.
This is the place where emotions show-up...big time!
Emotions show up with DRAMA and FLAIR! They can shut us down quickly if we are not deeply grounded in the awareness and knowing of our own dazzling hearts. Here are a few tips to help you get your feet on the ground and find balance and peace when choosing your memento collection:
The past is gone and things from the past, if unbalanced, can keep us feeling stuck. Instead of treasure, they begin to feel like an anchor weighing us down. Take a stand for your healthy future and keep the things that lift you up and make you sparkle. Lovingly pass along, bless and release the others, it’s back to the earth or out to the universe for someone else to love!
Big Sparkly Love,
