They call it divine order because it feels so heavenly when you can find your keys, your notebook or your glasses. There is one bit of folk wisdom that people have heard enough that it comes to mind like a spark of magic to give a boost against the inertia of disorganization. That bit is "A place for everything and everything in its place." Remember, however that the place must be right so that things can be put away and retrieved. That brings me to an aspect of organization that is often overlooked when people are trying to set up a room. Living in any area is a process, an active process. So type of use and frequency of use of an object has to be taken into consideration. Some objects have the sole use of being looked at. Even with those objects it is well to have them in the right place, doing the right thing. Remember that magic is well formed and that it can be done in small increments. So grab onto the spark of magic to energize yourself enough to face your need for organization. Then determine the needs for function in your area. Be creative and self nurturing but keep at it. What do you want to have close to hand? What will you be willing to go to a bit more trouble to take hold of? How will you know where things are if you can't see them immediately? What can you put somewhere else or throw away? If you keep at this in a self loving way your life will be more magical sooner that you might think.
