How To Declutter Your Life & Live A New Reality

by Emma Bathie
If you're not where you want to be in your life, not getting the results you’re looking for, or not in the kind of relationship you want to be in, understanding the "Universal Law of the Vacuum" will uncover the real reason you should be decluttering your life.

The "Universal Law Of Vacuum" states that nature abhors a vacuum (a gap or void ) and the universe will fill it in.

In essence this means that when you clear your physical environment, your beliefs, your relationships, and your life in general, you open up a space that, metaphysically, must be filled with something new. When you declutter the different areas of your life you “clear out the old and make way for the new.”

The wonderful thing about the Universe is that it is inherently good. When you create a vacuum, the Universe will, usually, fill it with something good. What’s important is that we create a space or void where that can happen. When we’re surrounded by our "busy-ness," negativity, and clutter, there’s no vacuum for harmony to enter our lives.


Decluttering is what opens up the space for new things to enter your life.


Want new clothes? Clean out your closet and give away old belongings to a charity or homeless shelter. Think you can’t find your soul mate? Get rid of those “friends with benefits,” or the relationship you’re just coasting in until something better comes along. If you’re holding onto any dysfunctional relationships then you’re not leaving any room for the Universe to fill it with a good ones.

Let go of stuff that doesn’t work in your life and have the faith that better energy is coming. Don't hold onto things out of fear. In my own life, it wasn’t until I said “no more” to a bi-polar boss — without any new work on the horizon — that I was able to create the space for incredible new opportunities to come into my life.

When you can let go of fear, decluttering is one of the fastest ways to crank up the manifesting mojo and clear new space for magic to enter your life.


Need a little help knowing what to let go of and what to keep? I recommend grabbing a copy of Marie Kondo’s best selling book, The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up: The Japanese Art of Decluttering and Organizing (2014), and delight in her simple but soul-directed selection criteria: Does it spark joy? If not, it might just be part of what’s been holding you back.

The real reason to declutter is to get rid of the stuff that’s been keeping you stuck so the Divine can work her magic and refill your life with what your soul truly craves. 


Empty yourself and let the Universe fill you, then feel your way into the following concept: You are what your surroundings are. And finally, if you want more prosperity and magic in your life ask yourself this question: What am I holding onto that I need to release to receive and create the life I want?
