What is your attitude towards your master bedroom? Is your
master bedroom a place where you really go to relax and sleep? Or is it a place
where you just throw in stuff and clutter because thereís no other place to put it,
or you canít decide where to put something so it gets thrown in with all
your other stuff and clutter, stuffed into drawers, under the bed, in the closet, or
in a corner? Is it fair to ask that your master bedroom becomes a catchall for
all the things that you canít make a decision about?
By de-cluttering and organizing your master bedroom you
can wake up or fall asleep to a spectacular view, instead of piles of
clothes and piles of clutter. What your attitude is, towards what youíre
trying to accomplish, and your commitment to working on your
organization challenges will play a very important role towards getting
your master bedroom de-cluttered and organized.

Alan Cohen, author of A Deep Breath of Life, writes in one of his
daily inspirations for heart-centered living:
ÖEach day is like a life unto itself, and so the first minutes of
each day are the formative minutes. We must take special care to
sound the keynote that will set the tone for our entire day. How do
you begin your day? Do you spend it with God, in peace, in
attunement with yourself? Or do you pop out of bed and immediately
dive into the busy-ness of the day, postponing your soulís needs in
favor of lesser activities?

read an inspiring book, practice yoga or tai chi, walk in the woods,

power. Establish your center, and the day that follows will reflect
clarity, strength, and love. Any time you spend with Spirit will be

and remembering the presence of love will make a big difference. At
the end of your day, be with God before entering sleep. The
formative minutes will build the consciousness that makes a

Wall by wall, inch by inch, surface area by surface area, all the
clutter and stuff that youíve STUFFED into the one place you should be
able to go to to relax, reflect, make love, sleep, and meet your Spirit
in the morning should be sorted through.
Nine Additional Steps to Get Started Organizing:

creating your own personal paradise.
2. Set a timer for the length of time you have set aside to declutter.
3. Take the phone off the hook.
4. Turn off the computer and TV.
5. Donít answer the door.
6. If you have children, make sure they have an activity to do or
have someone watch over or play with them (or maybe they can help <g>)

8. Do NOT bring anything else into the room youíre de-cluttering that
doesnít belong there.
