Those over-filled closets, basements, garages and storage spaces need attention! It's kapha season, which means now's the time to clear the clutter!
Kaphas, one of the best things for you is to clear the clutter.
You see, kaphas are the glue emotionally, physically and...materialistically. They like to keep stuff, like, forever if they could. However, this clingy energy bogs them down which is the last thing kapha needs.
Kapha needs more space, lightness, and flow. When we have possessions that are all piled up, we can't even see what we own, much less enjoy what we have.
A good bi-yearly cleanse of nooks, crannies and closets followed by a trip to the donation station will bring joy and lightness to their lives. For any kaphas having a hard time parting with “stuff” it might be easier to swallow when you know you’ll be giving it to someone else who will love it. Kaphas are very generous and will gladly help those in need, so this could be an easy sell to tell yourself ;)
Detaching is a challenge for kapha. Even emotionally, they can become overbearing, possessive and get depressed if their feelings get hurt too severely. Kaphas can also hold grudges which will weigh them down preventing their lustrous beauty to shine through.
Cleaning their physical space is a great therapy for kaphas (and all of us) to detach and bring clarity of the mind and enjoyment of the space around us. Since spring cleaning might not be kapha's favorite thing, let's make it fun!
Vatas and pittas can use this too, but this is not usually a problem for them. Pittas are neat n' tidy by nature because they love to organize. Vatas tend to throw stuff away and then wish they hadn't. Ha!
If kaphas can forgive, detach, and let go, they will feel light on their feet — in their hearts, minds, and spirits too.
