    ‘The quality of your consciousness at this moment…’ ~ Eckhart quote from ‘The Power of Now’ ☼

    ‘The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future. Which of course, can only be experienced in The Now.  If it is the quality of your consciousness at this moment that determines the future, then what is it that determines the quality of your consciousness. Your degree of presence. So the only place where true change can occur and where the past can be dissolved … is in The Now‘ ~ from ‘The Power of Now’ ~ Eckhart Tolle  ☼ Yours mindfully,Alison

    PROJECT > OLIVIA + JAMES’S ~ ATTIC/TREATMENT ROOM

    Olivia and James moved into their beautiful new house two years ago and while every other inch of their home is pristine, clutter-free and so very beautifully put together, there was just this one area of ‘still to be dealt with’ stuff that had been hidden away since the day they moved in.   After moving in, Olivia turned their converted attic space into a treatment room for her massage and holistic therapy business. The area you see in the photograph makes up one third of the room and is always screened off leaving a tranquil space for her to work in. During our consultation, she talked about how she was constantly aware of the chaos that sat just behind the screen and how she had concerns about clients taking a peek while she would leave the room after a treatment to let them get dressed.   Most of the items in the boxes were things that they would need at some point (skiing gear and electrical equipment etc) so it was mostly a matter of re-boxing everything. I did leave though…

    PROJECT > ANDY ~ WARDROBE BLITZ

    PROJECT > ANDY ~ WARDROBE BLITZ This project was a simple case of a not overly messy wardrobe that just needed a good clear-out, downsize and re-organisation. I began by pulling out all of the clothes (and there were many more items tucked behind all that you can see in the ‘before’ photo!) and then one by one held them up to Andy who, incredibly decisively and quickly said ‘yes’ or ‘no’. We therefore soon ended up with a pile to be taken away that was almost as big as the pile to be kept and re-hung! Once the ‘to be kept’ pile was ready, I re-hung all of his coats and shirts and then folded all of his MANY t-shirts so that the print could be seen without him needing to pull them all out to find the one he would want to wear on any given day. There were seven bags to be taken away by the end of the job, which I took to H&M and traded in for £5 vouchers (valid on a £25 spend) which as he shops regularly in H&M, turned out to…
