Tackling Clutter Using the Emotion Code

Juanita Ecker


Do you know this feeling? You have boxes of photos taking up space but you can’t bear to throw them away because they’re precious memories. Or maybe you have an old teddy bear that belonged to your grandmother, but it’s been sitting on the shelf for years and doesn’t even smell like her anymore. The clutter struggle is real— and it’s more than just having too much stuff in your home or office space.

The clutter struggle is about the emotional attachment we have with our things: our clothes, furniture, books, toys and other possessions can hold us tightly throughout our lives if we let them stay around too long! Clutter becomes an issue when these items start affecting how we live day-to-day, whether it’s taking up space in our homes or causing stress because we feel like we need them around all the time (even though they may not be useful). So, how does clutter affect our well-being? And how do we even begin to address the emotional aspects of this issue? Let’s dive into it!

Common Clutter Problems
You may be thinking, “My house is typically organized. Everything has its place. I don’t believe I have a clutter issue.” So, what do I mean when I say “clutter”. It could be desk that is littered with bills and important papers that need to be filed, closets full and over jammed with clothes you no longer wear, garages packed with junk and stored with products no longer in frequent use, a storage container with all of your children’s things (but your children are grown and you don’t have the heart to give it all away), broken things in the house that you think you will fix someday, magazines or books that you think you might want to read, etc. The list goes on and on. All of this affects us in ways we may have never thought about.

The Impact of Clutter on Mental & Physical Health

Often, we make space for things that no longer serve us in our household. It can lead to feelings of shame, guilt, and embarrassment. Clutter can make us feel like we have less control over our lives, leading to feelings of helplessness and frustration. In addition, having too many unneeded things can create a sense of chaos and confusion, making it difficult to relax and unwind. It creates an atmosphere of chaos and confusion, which can potentially lead to arguments between family members. 

Clutter can even have a negative impact on your physical health.

  • Clutter increases stress levels and can cause you to feel overwhelmed, which can lead to stress and anxiety. Chronic stress has been linked to many health problems, including heart disease, depression, obesity, and more.
  • It leads to injury: In addition to being dangerous due to tripping hazards such as clutter around doorways or stairs leading up into bedrooms where there may be more stuff stored under beds/dressers etc., there is also evidence showing how clutter itself could lead directly into an accident depending upon what kind of items are stored within reachable distance during daily activities.

If you’re struggling with clutter in your home, it’s important not only for your own health but also for those around you that you take steps toward getting organized!

Addressing the Clutter Problem Using the Emotion Code

You know what they say: “You can’t take it with you!” So why not give yourself some breathing room by getting rid of some things? But how can we actually step over that first hurdle? Once we identify the underlying issue behind not being able to part from our long-time-loved items (or even items we think we may need in the future), we can begin to address that issue directly. 

The Emotion Code technique can be used to address physical and emotional clutter. The physical clutter is the stuff in your home that you don’t need, want or use regularly. It’s usually easy to see what this is—it’s the stuff you haven’t touched in years!

The emotional clutter is harder to identify because it’s not something tangible like a piece of furniture or an old pair of shoes. Instead, it’s an accumulation of negative emotions that have been stored away within our bodies over time and are now affecting our health, well-being, and space around us. 

The Emotion Code technique allows you to clear out old wounds and unproductive energy so you can move forward with your life without being weighed down by past experiences or negative emotions that no longer serve you well. Through this technique, I was able to help a woman move loads of clutter out of her house by shifting the energy around being stuck and not wanting to let those things go. It turned out her mother threw away all of her things from childhood when she went off to college and never asked if she wanted any of the stuff.  She was very upset over her mother’s actions. So there were lots of emotions that we had to clear around not giving something away, for she may need it in the future. She made huge changes after the energy work we did together.

You can also experience the benefits of this powerful technique. By identifying and releasing trapped emotions related to the clutter, individuals like you can gain a greater sense of clarity and emotional freedom. It’s important to remember that letting go of clutter doesn’t mean letting go of memories or sentimental value. Rather, it allows for a more peaceful and organized living space, which can positively impact overall well-being. With the help of the Emotion Code technique and a willingness to release emotional blocks, individuals can create a more harmonious and joyful home environment.
