“For he who holds a hammer, the whole world is a nail.” – Abraham Maslow Beliefs protect us. Beliefs live in our subconscious mind. Beliefs have positive intention. But at what point do these core beliefs become limiting beliefs and interfere with our goal of a simpler, more peaceful home and life? In this episode, we dive deep into how our relationship with 'stuff' mirrors our beliefs. Like beliefs, the things we accumulate start with good intentions – comfort, security, memories. I share a personal story of how I struggled with letting go of certain items, fearing I'd be labeled a "heartless" daughter or a "bad" mom. These weren't conscious thoughts; they were lurking in my subconscious. That's the tricky part we need to uncover. This episode will help you identify and change the beliefs that are keeping you stuck in clutter.
