My client said, "I have a desire to tackle all the clutter as quickly as possible and
this is what tires me out and leads to burnout. So while I understand
and FEEL the urgency of my situation, is there a way to not feel guilt
when I think I'm not dealing with it quickly enough?"
I said that
feeling of guilt might come up that you're not dealing with it quickly
enough. You can't prevent the thought from arising.
But you can notice
how powerful it is. Guilt is loud. It changes the blood chemistry. It
has a way of taking away momentum. You can be aware of it with some
curiosity, as if it's a thing, just like the things that you are going
through in your space.
Because the guilt is a thing in the space of you.
when guilt comes up is part of the clutter bust. When you feel it, you
can talk with yourself and say, "Is this true? Am I not doing this
quickly enough? Could I be going faster? Or is it that when I try and go
faster, I shut down and give up? Maybe it really does that the time it
takes. Maybe I need to be gentler with myself in order to complete this
