It’s been eight years since the last edition of my book, Confronting Your Clutter. My new book, Clearing Clutter as a Sacred Act, includes what I’ve gathered and learned in the interim. It offers guidance on addressing the various kinds of clutter that may be holding you back.

Clearing Clutter as a Sacred Act offers perspectives and practical tasks intended to provide insight and momentum in your clutter-clearing process, including writing exercises to reveal your own inner wisdom—all the while honoring the transitions, seasons of life, and opportunities clutter represents and often obscures. Twenty-two original color illustrations, photographs, and original poems underscore the book’s main points with whimsy and humor.

From The Bear’s Gift:
Every morning she got up when the wind and the trees called to her. Then she went off to her favorite meadow to turn clouds into castles and to whisper secrets to the wildflowers. Every evening, right about supper time, she burst through the door full of ideas to share with her two sisters.
 
But they were always much too busy doing IMPORTANT things and told her not to be so childish.
 
“Why doesn’t anyone ever want to listen?” she sobbed, flinging herself on the bed. It seemed that the three sisters simply could not get along.

A transformational tale for all ages. Gertrude is the oldest sister, and a very hard worker. Alexandria, the middle sister, is not afraid of anything. Rosie, the youngest, is a dreamer full of ideas.

Even with these special qualities, the three sisters don’t appreciate each other and don’t get along at all. Then a mysterious bear visits, and leaves them with a gift, hoping it will help them find a way to work together.
