This is magic that is accessible for all. Tess takes complex ideas and makes them simple and doable for just about anyone. I've had the pleasure of seeing her speak in person at a small bookstore and we got to talk to her quite a bit. She's even lovelier in person and seems very sincere in her desire to help people by sharing her experience in this area. Along the way she also shares amusing personal anecdotes. I'd been wanting to read the book for awhile and seeing her made me actually pick it up and do it. I live in a situation with three other people in my house and not everyone is on board with this (YET!) but one of my roommates is. We can only do pockets of space, of course, since we share, but the rooms we've been able to do are wonderful. Tess says when you have roommates you can use the grid in your personal space and don't have to do it for the whole house, so we've done exactly that. We have cleared clutter and then cleared more. We swept, mopped, dusted, vacuumed and placed items back thoughtfully. We've had a lot of fun cleaning and clearing, weirdly enough and it has been the strange combination of fun mixed with hopeful sacredness in decorating - loving it! We even were able to take the one car garage and turn it into a workshop with art supplies, craft supplies, beads, fabric, and my sewing machine (easily accessible to me for the first time)and we are decorating it according to the grid...are calling it The Dream Factory. We plan on making vision boards on New Year's Day, and inviting our friends to take part (Of course you don't know me but trust me, having the space to do this as well as the interest and energy to entertain is magical in itself!) Tess gives us permission to get rid of all the stuff you've been hanging on to, more permission to care about yourself to the point where you know you deserve to have a beautiful space (Not that you have to spend a lot of money doing it either!) I have done my own bedroom according to the grid and for the first time in my forty one years I actually am completely satisfied with the way my bedroom looks. I feel more calm, peaceful and energized. I now get Tess's Good Energy Newsletter and apparently a new book is in the works...will absolutely get buy that one too!
