What do you think if I say that after less than one hour of decluttering your space you will already begin to feel less anxiety and overwhelm along with a feeling of accomplishment?
The reason I pose this question to you is that every client I have ever worked with has said this to me and I feel it as a beautiful and life affirming sense freedom and joy. I am so happy for them when I hear them tell me something like this in such a short amount of time.
Hi, my name is Caroline DeBolt and to explain to you what is possible in your life as far as decluttering, is not possible. It is a feeling you need to experience for yourself.
Have you ever done spring cleaning? Windows open, fresh air coming in, music on, clearing things out. That feeling you get when you are done 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 finally put your mind to it and charge forward, momentum hits and propels you through it. Not only is there a sense of accomplishment upon completion, but also a sense of relief and freedom.
I’m pretty sure there aren’t many who would say this isn’t true. If you agree with that feeling and memory, then you have come to the right place.
I am on an incredible journey!
My Story – Who Am I?
I have two adult children, ages 29 and 23, and I am very proud of both of them. The process we worked through, called parental alienation, started my journey. 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 for and with me. I searched high and low outside myself and found that the answers were not out there; they were inside of me.
For those of you who don’t know what parental alienation is, it’s where during a hostile divorce, the children live with one of the parents and due to the normal and natural growth process of children and 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 both of them 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, as a result of my experience, I have started a support group for noncustodial mothers on Facebook. If you are a noncustodial mother and are looking for support or have been through parental alienation, please head on 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.
During my journey, I went through many acquaintances, religions, places, college degrees, 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. I studied about nutrition and many other things. Where I landed at the time was with Native American/Indigenous Teachings and that helped me 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 as 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 teaching was that of being present. Being present for myself and others in my life, I literally broke through that last piece of the something that was stopping me from enjoying my life and being of service to others. The unconditional love I have received from everyone since then is huge and helped change my life and for this I am eternally grateful.
I received a Master’s Degree in Metaphysical Humanistic Science in the last year and also works as a Life Leadership Coach. I have a wide and varied background in many fields such as the military, business, and administration.
What Is My Background Related to Decluttering and Moving?
Now, why 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 when doing it 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 will never see or use again?
Along with that, it 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.
So here I am with Declutter Your Life With Caroline!
Why Am I Here?
I say all of 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 and in my body, mind and spirit. When we do this, we eventually burn out and are of no use to anyone, especially when we get sick, which is a potential outcome of continued anxiety, stress, overwhelm, etc. The result of decluttering your life is to release what no longer serves you resulting in simplicity, freedom and joy.
