HOW DOES KONMARI CONSULTING WORK?
Unlike traditional organization, where someone organizes your space for you, I help you transform yourself into a more organized person—no matter how impossible that idea might seem. We work together to declutter, and then find the right place for each item, so they all have a home. Best part is that you take these skills with you for the rest of your life.
Unlike what's shown in the Tidying Up Netflix show, where Marie Kondo runs off at the very moment her presence and guidance would be most appreciated, KonMari consultants work with you through the whole process. In fact, five of the eight families had KonMari consultants helping them behind the scenes.
My job is to guide you to make choices based on love instead of fear or guilt. This is challenging to do on your own. I know, because whenever a client claims they've decluttered a particular category recently, I say, "Well, let's just take a look." Soon half of the allegedly sorted items are in the goodbye area, simply because I asked some questions.
BOWER & BIRD?
Bowerbirds build spectacular structures and decorate with exquisite taste and sensitivity. I fell in love with them the first time I saw one in a David Attenborough nature documentary. Apparently he was impressed too.
Just seeing the lovely little male coming out, as pleased as Punch, and putting a flower in one particular place on this lawn in front of us and then cocking his head and thinking, “I don’t think so… I think it needs to be another six inches to the left…”, that’s an extraordinary sight. - Sir David Attenborough
Just giving credit where credit is due--these birds have been tidying, arranging things by color, and surrounding themselves with what sparks joy way before Marie Kondo. On a personal note, I share their commitment to bright colors, intentional maximalism, and moss lawns--and, as a thrift store devotee--attracting mates with other people's trash. It works, y'all.
The mission of Bower & Bird is to help you get in touch with the truest and best version of yourself by working with the energy of your home. After completing the process, you'll find a deeper wisdom inspiring your actions, leading you to take better care of your home, your body, and (y)our planet.
It works that way because asking if something "sparks joy" is actually a profound question. You'll discover that after you ask it over a thousand times about what you might think are trivial objects, that you have awakened an internal compass that will guide you through life from now on. Whether it is true love, a dream home, or a great job, since we worked together many of my customers have felt guided to the right place and time to make life-changing connections.
In addition to honing one's intuition through the joy-checking process, the organization component will introduce a level of calm in your life where you are better able to hear what the universe has been trying to tell you all along.
