Since the start of this year I have been astounded by the number of friends and clients who have been decluttering their homes, particularly with the method outlined in the book ‘Spark Joy’ by Marie Kondo.
The essence of this method is to keep whatever items spark joy, and discard the rest. Having given the method a go, I am a complete convert! Life now feels easier, and I feel even more inspired to do more of what I love each and every day.
Have you Tried…
Here are the 4 basic steps:
- Declutter by category (not location) in the following order: Clothes, books, papers, miscellaneous & sentimental items
- Hold each item in turn and feel whether it sparks joy. If it does, keep it. If it doesn’t, discard it
- Assign a ‘home’ for everything that is being kept so that each item is easily visible
- Display ornaments/pictures/photos that you love around your home
You can get your hands on Marie’s book here – an inspiring and uplifting read and full of tips and advice on how to overcome potential pitfalls!
Enhance the Experience
While helping a friend declutter, she would freak out while holding each of her possessions, exclaiming ‘I don’t know whether it sparks joy!’ The Equilibrium Bottle that can help with this is Bottle 7 Yellow/Green, as well as any green or yellow Aura-Soma products. Green helps us be in touch with our true feelings, and yellow helps us sense joy and instills confidence to be true to our self; both essential for the ‘Spark Joy’ test!

Practicing and honing your skill to sense joy can change your life. Not only can it transform your home; it can also lead you to tweaking or changing career path, starting new hobbies and prioritizing certain relationships as you become more aware of what truly inspires and motivates you. Following your joy is a certain way to a truly fulfilling life.
