Abundance blocks are an important topic if you want to succeed with the Law of Attraction and decluttering your life will help to manifest more abundance guaranteed. In my advanced manifesting course, I dedicate even a complete module just to the topic of abundance blocks, and how you can solve them.
So, how exactly can decluttering help to manifest better and faster?
The Law of Attraction is based on being aligned with your goals and dreams, and through this alignment, you focus on the "important" things, this alignment and focus will attract more of these things you concentrate on. But the clutter in our lives stands in our way.
The fact, that the Law of Attraction and decluttering belong closely together has long been known, but decluttering and tidy up your house has definitely attained a certain virality, thanks to the Declutter-Queen Marie Kondo and her KonMari method.
And that makes me happy because all of us should have less clutter to deal with.
The Law of Attraction doesn't just work better when we have a clean house; we should also focus on other areas; our relationships, our bodies, our thoughts, and yes ladies, our handbags. To mention a few.
But first let's have a look why decluttering is so important to attract abundance, and then I'll show you how to clear space for your manifestation success.
Why is Clutter a Abundance Block
I realized early on that if I had chaos in my house, I also had chaos in my head. Fortunately, I moved often enough and frequently travel anyway, so I never had a lot of clutter in my life anyway.
But why is it that this clutter blocks us and stands in our way when we want to manifest our dreams and goals successfully?
For this, you first have to understand the basics of manifesting and how our subconscious mind works.
The Law of Attraction works in such a way that we clearly signal to our subconscious what we want (our goal, our dreams).
Our Subconscious mind will filter out everything that matches this "new reality" that we create.
If you are right in the flow of manifesting, also known as the vortex, then it means that your subconscious mind works very efficiently and guides you to your goal. We often perceive this as a sign from the universe or synchronicity.
But what happens when we have a lot of clutter in our lives?
Clutter, of any kind, can feel very overwhelming for the brain. This creates a lot of stimuli for the brain to deal with and will hinder your subconscious mind from doing its job correctly.

And sometimes this clutter is even worse because often it stands symbolically for something negative or is attached to some limiting beliefs.
An excellent example of this is a wardrobe full of clothes you' 've long grown out of. I'm clearly guilty here!
I collected vintage clothes from the 40s-60s for a long time, and unfortunately, there were some pieces I would never (again) grow into. Well, except maybe if I would remove a rib.
What signals do you think these clothes in my wardrobe send to my subconscious mind every time I see them and realize that I don't fit into them?
So it is obvious, one of the most powerful and fastest ways to manifest more abundance into your life is by decluttering. Get rid of everything in your life that no longer has its value, that no longer serves you and most importantly, that is no longer aligned with your dreams and goals.
How to Declutter Your Life for More Abundance
We tend to tolerate much clutter in our lives and simply ignore it. And that's bad news, now that you know how harmful this clutter can be for your manifestation success.
But if you look at all areas of your life, you will find some low hanging fruits. And these are the ones you should work on first.
These are usually the things that don't seem to make such a big difference, so we just accept them and don't really care about them, but these things add up over time.
They stop you from being successful! They stop you from being aligned with the universe.
And they stop you from manifesting your big dreams!
We keep an eye on them all the time, whether it's that picture on the wall, that's not hanging straight. Or the dirty dishes in the sink. Maybe the broken garage door.
All these things draw our attention away from the big goals we want to achieve in life.
The other thing is, if we can't handle the little things in life, we start to feel disillusioned about what we can achieve. We think, subconsciously, how can I build a 7-figure business if I can' t even clean my coffee cup after breakfast.
In my advanced manifesting course, I go through a mind, body, and life assessment with my students in which we identify all the blocks that stand in their way and then remove them.

But you can just go through your house, your wardrobe, your handbag and think about your life, your relationships, etc.
And think about all the little things that you just tolerate.
For example, I had a broken light switch in my old apartment. Not only did it look messy, but every time I wanted to turn off the light, I got annoyed.
And even worse, subconsciously I was probably afraid of getting an electrical shock, every time I used the light switch.
I can't even tell why I didn't got it fixed.
Anyway, when I moved out of the apartment, I finally had to do it. It was 5 minutes of work for the handyman and hardly cost anything.
Did it keep me away from manifesting abundance? The light switch alone probably not, but it took me 5 minutes (well actually it took the handyman 5 minutes), and I had one thing to worry less in life.
We tolerate relationships that we know hurt us; we tolerate a job that makes us unhappy; we tolerate the 5-10 pounds too much that makes us bloated and not entirely happy with ourselves...
But these are the more significant things, it all starts with the little things.
This little hole in a dress, or the inbox full of e-mails you should delete, a stain on a carpet you should clean... this is all mess and clutter that adds up, but you could probably get rid of it pretty quickly.
You just have to do it.
It's not that this stuff is really hard to handle, or it would take a lot of time or money, we just don't make it a priority, so it never gets done.
So give it that priority, right now I want you to open your calendar and check when you have a couple of hours to make that list.
Clearing your space for more flow, abundance and more manifesting success should be on top of your priorities!
And once you know your incompleteness and all the clutter and mess that's holding you back, schedule it to be repaired and cleaned up.
And you don't have to do everything alone, get some help!
Why don't you invite a friend for a cleaning party at your house, make some yummy Margaritas and I'm sure you'll have a lot of fun.
And then the week after you go to your friend's house and do the same with her list?
Or pay the neighbors' son a few dollars, or look at blackboards at universities, to get some cheap help.
You see, decluttering for abundance don't have to be complicated.
Questions that will help you to declutter your environment
Declutter your house can be difficult if you don't like to let go. I understand you. We all have these things that we're emotionally attached to, but maybe they're just standing in the way.
Let's find out.
Here are some questions you can ask yourself when you try to decide what should stay and what should go:
⇒ Do you really still love it, would you still buy it?
⇒ Is it still aligned with your lifestyle and taste?
⇒ Does it still fit you?
⇒ Do you still feel good when using/wearing it?
⇒ Is it still intact, or maybe broken, past its use-by-date etc. If so, can it still be fixed?
⇒ Have you used or worn it within the past year?
If you really struggle to let go of things, or think, hey maybe I still need that, here's a little trick.
Put the things in a box and store them in the garage. If you haven't unpacked them again in the next 12 months, through every season of the year, then it's time to let go.
Things that are still intact you can bring to a charity shop. Don't forget, generosity is an important point to bring more abundance into your life!
Decluttering Manifesting More Money
Decluttering is super powerful for more abundance in your life, and this is especially true for manifesting more money.
It's like making room for more.
But not only that, imagine what you signal to the universe (or better said to your subconscious mind) when you walk around with ragged clothes when your house is dirty, or things that are broken don't get repaired.
Rich people don't live that way. Period.
I have to admit that I am a very bad housewife; cleaning is definitely not one of my strengths.
But a cleaner in England, and especially in Switzerland, isn't exactly cheap. And I had times in my life where money wasn't as abundant as it is today and I thought I could save some money by cleaning myself.
Then, my house was always a mess; it never looked clean and tidy. Usually, such an attempt went only a few months until I gave in and decided to hire a cleaner again.
And guess what had happened. Not that I suddenly had a few hundred dollars less every month because I had to pay for the cleaning. No, every time, and yes, I did this experiment three times, I had more money in my account afterward.
Not only did I have more time to work on my business and earn more money, no, I also sent out signals of "I'm doing well," "I'm rich," "money is abundant in my life."
Today I live in an apartment that belongs to a hotel, and I love it when the hotel cleaning lady comes by. The only thing missing is the chocolate on the pillow and that she fills the mini-bar with some champagne.
But I love to have some goals in my life still, haha!
ARE YOU READY TO TAKE ACTION?
One thing is clear when it comes to the Law of Attraction; without action, you will never manifest your dreams.
And Decluttering for more abundance is a great way to take action. So start today, and you'll see clearing space for your manifestation success can actually be fun!
