We have so many stories, so many thoughts about our belongings and those can certainly have a place when we’re purifying. So it’s not about getting rid of anything. We can allow the story to be on the shelf for a minute, just taking the object in. If there’s an object that maybe causes a little bit of stress, or brings up some mixed emotions…Or we may pick something up and just be flooded with a beautiful nostalgia…and find we are smiling spontaneously….Be fully present without judgment.
