Related To:

Resolutions can often end up like a belly flop in a pool. There are ways you can resolve to do certain things without setting yourself up for failure right off the bat. If one of your goals is to declutter your mind, a positive, organized home can certainly make that much easier.

, celebrity spiritual healer and founder of home accessories brand , shares her top five space-clearing tips for the new year to lighten and uplift the energy in your home.

But wait — what's space clearing?

"Just as we put time and energy towards healing ourselves, so too does our environment require the same attention," Holly says. "Clearings help provide harmonious settings for prosperous businesses, healthy residences and any appreciated space. Once an environment is attuned to a healing vibration, all people in that space will re-attune to a more peaceful level. Raising the space's energetic frequency allows spirit and love to flow within it."

There's definitely a process that Holly tackles in person with her clients, but the tips below are ones that you can resolve to do yourself.

Each time Laura Ingalls Gunn of Decor to Adore visited family in England, she was drawn to the colorful souvenir tea towels she spotted in the shops. When her son asked to inject a bit of British flair into the family’s sunroom, she finally had a perfect use for those stashed-away linens. “The beauty of tea towels is that they are sold everywhere and generally inexpensive to purchase,” Gunn says. “You can create an envelope-back pillow in a matter of minutes.” Finishing off the cushions with coordinating remnants and fun trim really makes them pop.
