We accumulate physical objects in our homes, cars, and workplaces, but have you ever thought about digital clutter? Every object contains energy and affects the subtle body. Environments and all surrounding objects influence our energetic fields. Therefore, it is important to heed exactly what is in our space. Get rid of objects that are old and unnecessary as they are most likely weighing you down.
Similar to how physical clutter can burden us energetically so can email, text, and message. All of these words become physical when they enter and sit in our inboxes, message boxes or text chains. Digital garbage can affect the mental and emotional bodies. How many times have you felt overwhelmed with hundreds of emails flowing into your inbox?
We will continue to have things and receive messages, but what I propose is to be mindful of what you choose to project, receive and keep in your space.
For instance, how many times have you exchanged dozens of emails to get the exact same result? Probably many. Therefore, similar to anticipating the next few moves in a game of chess, think about an email before composing it. Include all of your points, provide answers to questions before the recipient needs to ask. Like a party invitation, include all details (who, what, where, when, why). Try this tactic instead of "throwing up" in someone's inbox. Replace hasty, careless emails with a thoughtful one.
As the recipient, let the sender know if they are bombarding you.
Like organizing and cleaning physical space, do the same with your messages. Organize them into digital folders, Google Drive, or DropBox. Delete old messages and empty your trash.
To clarify, I am not proposing that you purge everything. We can surround ourselves with beautiful art, furniture, decor, plants, crystals, etc., and we can store meaningful conversations and messages. However, I say, 1. get rid of the junk and 2. don't produce it.
Proper digital etiquette will help keep minds clean and clear.
