My objective in this episode is to inspire you to “Marie Kondo” your mind. For those of you who don’t know her, Marie Kondo is a Japanese consultant who has a Netflix show about helping hoarders declutter their homes. She asks them to ask themselves if each item in their house brings a “spark of joy”. If it does, they keep it. If not, they throw it out or give it away. And voila! More joy in their homes.

Decluttering your mind does something similar to your mental state. It happens when you become aware of all the thoughts that don’t serve you and you decide whether to keep them or to explore more useful thoughts.

Decluttering your mind also happens when you learn to rest your mind and step into that place of deep spaciousness. This is the source for your best insights and deepest creativity.

I show you how to use a decluttering approach when you’re struggling to make progress on a project, worrying about something that might happen, or trying to make a decision.

My mission in this podcast is to help you find the freedom to become who you want. In every episode, I arm you with one useful idea or strategy you can use immediately to start taking your life in a beautiful, new direction.

This session is something outside my normal coaching program, so it’s a rare opportunity. It’s a fun and useful way to access deeper truths about what you really want and the wisdom you need to know right now. If you’re not the kind of person who remembers your dreams, no problem. I have another fun way I apply the dream methodology to your waking thoughts. I guarantee you’ll be surprised at what you learn about yourself.
