Hi! I’m Martina and I’m so glad you’re here!
What Is My Mission?
Well, I’m glad you asked! I’m nuts about decluttering life, in all sense of the word! (Some say I’m nuts in general, but that is for another day!)
I’m on a mission to help women clear life of the things that don’t do them any favours and simply waste their precious time, mental space and energy.
I want to get rid of the mental clutter that can be so all-consuming and can hold you back from living the life you truly want.
Insecurity and self-doubt? You don’t need it.
unnecessary fear and anxiety? Let’s get rid of that too!
Overwhelmed and unsure of what you want or how to get it? It’s time for clarity.
I want to simplify life for you so that you can enjoy everyday to the fullest feeling confident, empowered and completely aligned with what you desire. And that mental clutter? Oh look…it’s gone!
How It All Began
In my teens and my twenties, I used to spend my time traveling the world with nothing but the things I could fit in my backpack. One day I realised how ‘busy’ life had become and most of the things that kept me busy weren’t even things I wanted to do.
From being completely independent and free to go as I pleased with life, I suddenly found myself a mother to two beautiful twin girls, settled in a long-term relationship and had a mortgage. This was a far cry from what life used to look like. I’m not saying these things were bad – not at all – but it felt completely overwhelming.
I felt lost without a sense of direction – this constant feeling of being stuck in the rat race of life, just trying to make it through one day at a time. I know that when you have newborns, this is normal and completely acceptable. But as time went on, I just couldn’t seem to get out of the constant feeling of overwhelm. The amount of clutter in the house increased exponentially along with the mental clutter in my mind! I noticed that somewhere along the line I had formed a collection of limiting beliefs and habits that were not letting me thrive. And the worst part was that I didn’t seem to have any time for things that used to bring me pure joy.
I knew something had to shift. But how?
As I started on my mission of simplifying life, I realised that while my life was full of things that I was grateful for, it was also bursting at the seams with stuff I didn’t even want or need!
When did this happen? I used to be so organised!
Along the way of life, we end up collecting things, ideas, habits, processes, doubts that continually fill our lives until we run out of space, both physically and mentally. This leaves very little room, if any room at all, for the things that actually matter to us.
Why Do I Do This?
I hired coaches and mentors to help me figure my life out and get me out of this rut. And that was when it hit me!
Most people try to get through difficult things and situations on their own. They don’t want to admit they need help or they have no idea where to turn to.
After a few years of getting the support I needed, I realised that I was heavily relying on my coaches to ‘give me all the answers’ and that I wasn’t taking much responsibility for my own choices and my own life. It’s like I was expecting someone else to tell me what to do and then I could just do that.
But this isn’t sustainable. We can’t have some all-knowing guru in our pockets who can just tell us what to do at every step of the way. (I wish!) At one point, we all need to take responsibility for our own lives and take aligned action. We are all capable of so much more than we ever give ourselves credit for.
I started to develop a passion for learning about self-acceptance, self-development, personal growth and the role our unconscious mind plays in all this. I started to study NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and Timeline Therapy™ and became a certified practitioner in both. I also became a Reiki practitioner and started to study the incredibly interesting effects of bioenergy healing. I started to delve into the art of uncluttering life in a down-to-earth and realistic way, using all these skills and my experience to strip away all the overbearing things that had piled up in my life.
It is amazing how much we can pile into our everyday lives without even being aware of it. When we finally get the chance to sit back and self-reflect, we realise how much of this ‘stuff’ (another word comes to mind here!) isn’t actually doing us any good. In fact it’s causing more damage than we are aware of.
I’m Not the Only One
As it turns out, I wasn’t the only one to feel this constant overwhelm and feeling of being ‘stuck’ in life. Life can get cluttered in all areas and the sooner we weed out what is no longer helping us, the sooner we can create more space, more time and more mental clarity to enjoy our lives to the fullest.
I wanted to share what I have learned, what I have experienced, what has inspired me and share it with anyone else who is ready to purge the clutter in their life.
I’ve come across a lot of websites that help with decluttering your home and your space (which is very important and has a big impact on our subconscious)…but I wanted more. I want to declutter my mind! I couldn’t find a place that focused on this holistically…so I decided to create it!
