What would you think if I told you that after less than one hour of decluttering your space you will begin to feel less anxiety and overwhelm and a feeling of accomplishment?
I pose this question to you because every client I have worked with has said this to me. The opportunity provides a beautiful and life affirming sense freedom. I feel so happy for them when they tell me this in such a short amount of time.
Hi, my name is Caroline DeBolt and to explain to you what decluttering can do for you in your life, is not possible. It’s a feeling you need to experience for yourself.
Ever done spring cleaning? Windows open, fresh air coming in, music on, clearing things out. That feeling you get when you’re finished with the task and you feel complete and a pure sense of joy. Yes, the journey and process can be overwhelming and scary at first, but when you put your mind to it and charge forward, momentum hits and propels you through. Not only is there a sense of accomplishment upon completion, but a sense of relief and freedom.
I’m pretty sure there aren’t many who would say this isn’t true. If you’ve ever experienced this or would like to, then you’ve come to the right place.
My Story – Who Am I?
I have two adult children, ages 29 and 23, and I am very proud of them both. The process we worked through, called parental alienation, started my search to feeling better. I tell you about this in the following paragraph because if it weren’t for what happened, I would have never set out on this journey of a lifetime to find out who I am and what was going on with me. I searched everywhere outside myself and found that the answers were not there; they were inside me.
Parental alienation is what happens during a hostile divorce, where the children live with one of the parents and due to the normal and natural growth process of children, not being told the whole truth about the noncustodial parent, or being lied to about the noncustodial parent, the child decides to not want anything to do with a loving parent. I was the alienated parent.
During that time, I felt lost, alone and in a complete and utter depression and was desperately looking for a way to change what I was doing in my life. I now have a beautiful relationship with them both and I am grateful to have been through the process and learned so much. (Please note that parental alienation not only affects noncustodial parents and the children but can also affect the siblings, grandparents and other special people in a child’s life.)
Also, because of my experience, I have started a support group for noncustodial mothers on Facebook. If you are a noncustodial mother looking for support or have been through parental alienation, please head over to Glimmers of Hope – Noncustodial Mother’s Support – Divorce/PA. Please be aware this is a closed group and you will need to answer a couple of questions before entry.
Looking for answers to help me, I went through many acquaintances, religions, places, college degrees, and schools of thought looking for answers. I looked at all kinds of teachings to help me to get through it such as Eastern Philosophy, to include Yoga, Ayurvedic Medicine, and energy work/Reiki. Where I landed at the time was with Native American/Indigenous Teachings and which helped the most to move to where I am today.
In July 2014, I took a Personal Development course with my son and my life took off. I don’t, however, want to make this sound glamorous; it was not. Through two years of tears, working through anger, sadness, shame, fear, and feeling in lack, I took another Personal Development course that took me to another level of learning and healing.
I knew there was more, so the most recent course taught me to be present; for myself and others. Learning this helped me to break through that last piece of that thing that was stopping me from enjoying my life and being of service to others. The unconditional love I have received from everyone since I started is huge and helped change my life and for this I am eternally grateful.
I also received a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Humanistic Science in the last year and work as a Life Leadership Coach. I have a wide and varied background in many fields such as the military, business, and administration.
My Background In Decluttering and Moving
How do I know so much about decluttering, downsizing, packing and moving? I have moved over 53 times in my life. Wow, that sounds like a lot when I type it, yet, if it weren’t for those moves, I wouldn’t be good at what I do. So that’s about 30 years’ worth of experience doing this. During these times I learned to declutter, downsize, pack, deal with moving companies and the process of moving in and of itself. My favorite question I ask myself is, “Do I really want to dust this again?” I don’t like dusting. I also figured out that the more I downsized, the more money I saved on my moves. Why pay more money for something you never see or use?
It also took many years of research, study and learning how to be present in my own life, to combine my gifts and skills into a cohesive program that can assist you in working through anxiety, breaking through unconscious belief systems and guiding you in moving forward with decluttering your life so you can awaken to your infinite potential. I also use about 10 years of experience in coaching and mentoring to guide you through the process in a nonjudgmental, caring, loving and supportive way.
Why Am I Here?
I say this, so you can see the result for me was to learn that it is not anyone else’s life I live for but my own. I was so busy making sure everyone else was happy and keeping the peace that it left no room for me and stuff began to stack up, literally; in my body, mind, spirit and environment. It can become so stressful that we are of no use to anyone, especially if we get sick, which is generally the outcome of continued anxiety, stress, overwhelm, etc. The result of decluttering your life is to release what no longer serves you, bringing you simplicity and freedom.
