One of my clients wrote, "I think back on my attachment to ALL MY STUFF and I don't even remember
some of the things I let go of. I was soooo attached to my books,
haven't missed one of them, clothing, gone, don't miss, I don't even
remember the stuff...so what was that about, Brooks?"
I wrote back to her. I told her it came from taking an honest look at the things in her life, asking how she felt about each item (whether or not she loved and used them), and seeing clearly that certain items were no longer a part of her life.
Essentially, I told her that this was the effect of her breaking a hypnotic clutter
spell. Her attachment to those things was broken. That's why she didn't
What I want you to know, and what I wanted her to know, is that no one is alone. I've seen hundreds of people happily surprised that they didn't miss the things that they let go of after they discovered these things were no longer a part of their lives. In a lot of ways, they got their lives back.
In case you weren't able to see it, here's a link to the download of my appearance as the Clutter Buster on the reality show Raising Whitley, on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
