WooHoo! The Beautiful Side of Grief has hit 100 episodes!! I am so grateful to YOU for listening 🙏   And what better way to celebrate than to understand what your clutter is saying to you! Yes, your clutter talks. It tells the story of what you fear, what you're hiding, what you need to feel safe... And so much more.   Star Hansen is known as the Clutter Whisperer. Her approach is probably unlike  any you've seen or heard of before. It's compassionate. It's non-judgemental. It's real. And it works. Plus, you don't need to strive for a perfectly tidy house!   Star guides us through this episode revealing the little-known stuff that you need to understand about what your clutter is revealing to you. The stuff that is often hidden from you at a subconscious level, so you may spend many years blindly unaware of your clutter story. Though once you know you then have the power to finally start shifting that stuck energy!That's exciting!   In this episode I share some of my own struggles with clutter... Knowing how to deal with Tahl's possessions after she died. Staring at the unpacked boxes and not able to face them because of the memories they would bring to the surface. Plus how I felt about living with my mum's clutter as a child growing up and unable to do anything about it. I felt anxious, embarrassed, angry at my mum (sorry mum!) and helpless. I am sure I am not alone with these struggles.   This is a powerful episode!    Star's Bio Star Hansen is a Certified Professional Organizer (CPO©) and Clutter Whisperer on a mission to help you banish your personal Clutter Monster, take control of your stuff, and create a life you’re truly proud of. Star looks at the deeper meaning of your stuff to help you figure out WHY you feel overwhelmed by your clutter in the first place. Star’s best selling book, “Why the F*#@ Am I Still Not Organized?”, has inspired countless individuals to tackle their clutter head-on and find lasting solutions. She has appeared on over 30 TV shows, given a TEDx talk, and shared her fitted sheet folding secrets with Oprah & her fans.
