What is Spiritual Clutter and What to do About it?

We talk a lot in our culture about physical clutter and the impact on well-being when one’s environment is cluttered, but we don’t talk enough about the impact of Spiritual Clutter. What is it and how does it affect us? 

I think of Spiritual Clutter as any person, place or thing, behavior or mind-set that separates us from our spiritual connection. It could be going it alone, feeling the whole world is on your shoulders and it’s not OK to ask for support, or feeling you have to muscle your way through life, and there’s no benevolent force working with you. 

It’s so many things to so many people, but whatever it is, it certainly doesn’t prove helpful is one looking to move forward in life.

The good news is that there are things one can do to both identify it and overcome the systemic issue that most people suffer with as it speaks to Spiritual Clutter. 

Here are a few tips that can make a difference in FITBLOG (Sears) by reading an article called Spring Cleaning Your Spirit, which is a wonderful piece on the importance on decluttering effecting not just physical but spiritual clutter.

I hope you enjoy it!
