Hello this is Tonya Dawn Recla, your Super Power Expert. I’m really tickled to have with me today, Julie Coraccio! Is that right, Julie?
Yes! That’s right! Thank you for having me!
Oh you’re quite welcome!
I want to brag about you for just a second, as I do with all my guests on this show, I take a moment to get to know who they are and combine energetically. I’m just sitting here with a big ole smile on my face. Honestly, you’re just fun. I feel you, but it’s that real low key understated “This just is. It just feels right.”
She’s for sure one of our people, and she is so much more than that of course. She’s an award winning professional organizer, she’s an author, certified life coach, and we can go on-and-on about accolades. But the most important thing for us is just that willingness to sit in that trust and to connect. And she proved that the second she opened her mouth. So with that, Julie welcome to the show. Thank you so much for joining us.
Thanks for having me. And thank you for all you’re doing. I love the topic of Super Powers because that’s so important.
Well, thank you. Thank you. I’m glad you said that because we’re going to jump right in and say “What are your Super Powers?”
My Super Powers are supporting people and clearing their clutter. I use that through my skills of listening, my intuitive gifts, and coaching.
I like that. I love that you throw intuition in there because of my bias that we’re really moving into this state of being where that is the primary guiding force for so many people. At least in my journey, it was the only place I could go back to and find my own truth.
So I like that you threw that in. And how unique to throw that in in the clutter conversation! How did that come about?
Well, it’s interesting. When I started organizing, my business was called Healing Through Organization. The more I worked, it was kind of an Aha moment. One thing that had happened, was I was working with a client and she said, “Can we just talk.” And I said, “Sure,” I will do whatever the client wants. It ended up being more of a coaching session. I work in a chunk of time because you can see results, when you clear clutter and get organized. She said, “I can tell this is making you nervous because you’re not doing anything, but I can’t tell you how much this is supporting me.” And it was then that I realized…
In the meanwhile, I’d been doing an internet TV show called Re-awaken Your Brilliance, where I interviewed Body, Mind, and Spirit Experts. It was (another) Aha moment of it’s more important to clear the clutter.
We can organize anything, however, to have the maximum impact, it’s about clearing your clutter. When you do that, you can create the life you choose, deserve, and desire.
That’s brilliant. I know you approach it from the concept of clutter from the inside and outside, can you give us some tips or some pointers of how you see that connection between what’s happening externally with what’s happening internally.
Whatever’s going on inside, is going to be reflected in your outside environment. For instance, when I go into someone’s home (and again you talk about intuition, which I love) all I can tell you is, I can’t “scientifically” tell you how I know this: I know that someone is depressed, does someone have a lot of anxiety. You can feel that. You can feel that in the energy the space. Whatever’s going on, is going to be reflected in your outside environment.
If you start to clear your physical clutter, it’s going to have an impact on your emotional, your spiritual, your mental, your energetic clutter. It just has that relationship where as you work on one, the other improves. It’s like, if you clear the physical clutter and don’t work of any on your inside of what’s going on, it’s going to come back. That’s been my experience.
It’s more about clearing that other stuff because, again, clearing the physical clutter is kind of “easy,” and I use that term loosely. It’s the harder part of digging and going inside and being, “OK, what’s my clutter?”
I have a little bit of a different definition than most people. I view clutter as delayed decisions, anything that is sta
