Get motivated to clear out the junk with this simple and effective clutter clearing meditation and ritual.
Clutter clearing is a powerful practice.
It literally creates more space for you to live your life. It somehow magically frees up more time in the day. It clears your energy field and establishes clarity in your mind. By donating what you don’t love, use, or need, you are sending wealth out into the world, which comes back to you in different forms, multiplied. You also create a vacuum for blessings of all varieties to naturally flow in. You feel more ease, flow, and creativity. And everything is connected, so physical clutter represents mental and emotional clutter. That’s why letting go of clutter helps you to open up to possibilities and feel far more creative. It helps you let go of what no longer serves you and integrate the lessons you’ve learned.
There’s no doubt about it: living with less clutter helps with everything. It lets you live your entire life with greater purpose, freedom, success, prosperity, and delight.
If you want to get that clutter cleared, but you need a little push to get you started, this clutter clearing meditation is for you.

You will need:
- A white or off-white clean-burning candle
- A lighter or matches
- Ten index cards or note cards (or squares of paper)
- A pen
- A cup of coffee or tea (with or without caffeine) made just how you like it
Before you make your coffee or tea, write the following on the note cards:
- More space
- More time
- More joy
- Energy clearing
- Abundance and blessings
- More ease and flow
- Letting go
Now, prepare your coffee or tea. Light the candle and sit comfortably in front of it. Call on the Divine in any way you choose, and request help with your intention to get inspired and motivated to clear your clutter. Relax and take some deep breaths. Shuffle the note cards, with the words face down. Then, turn them right side up.
As you enjoy your beverage, take a little bit of each time with each note card, one at a time. Start with the one on top and work your way through the rest. Savor the taste of your drink while closing your eyes and simply contemplating how it will feel to have more space, for example. You might be able to dance or do yoga more easily. Perhaps it will be easier to throw a party or take joy in your creative projects. Think about each benefit logically, but also picture yourself experiencing it, and open your senses and emotions to how it will feel to embody it.
Sit with each benefit until you truly feel excited about it. Then move onto the next one. And all the while, savor your coffee or tea.
Once you’ve made your way through each benefit and finished your beverage (it’s okay if one takes longer than the other), close your eyes and take another deep breath or two. Relax your body and mind once more.
Then, say to yourself, “It’s totally okay if I don’t clear clutter perfectly, and it’s perfectly fine if I don’t do it all at once. All I need to do is begin. My natural motivation and my divine support will guide me and carry me through.”
Now, choose one limited area, such as your refrigerator, one cupboard, your junk drawer, or a medicine cabinet. You can start there. Once you’re finished with that, you can decide if you want to tackle another area or stop there for the day and continue when you have more time.
You can repeat this clutter clearing meditation and motivation ritual as often as you’d like.
