  • 9. “We leave our message behind, not our mess.”

    HOST: Åsa Nilsson TITLE OF EPISODE: “We leave our message behind, not our mess”SUMMARY OF EPISODE:I spent all last week working with my ‘Ray of Sunshine’ on Phase 2 of getting him completely moved out of his Stockholm apartment so he can relocate back to the US.The trust that Ray gives me, and the “free hands” to work in my own way to create the end result which he needed … makes me come alive. Makes me sweat too, don’t think it's all roses. There is an underlying pressure I still put on myself which I recognize when I “have” to rely on others. And when I start feeling like something is going sideways, how can I react in a way that is better suited rather than losing sleep over it? I can start with gratitude (and having back ups for everything!). Saying ‘thank you’ to those people and myself more. When I do this, I feel myself becoming lighter. I feel my energy becoming brighter. I can feel more creative. Immediately. Saying the words to myself, “Have fun with this, Åsa. It will all work out. Trust others to show up and do what they promised.” Trust. Trust. Trust. Working on it. #progressnotperfectionXx,ÅsaIN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:So much gratitude goes out to my VILLAGE of people that supported and helped me this week. Ray, Thomas,Tim, Mike, Thais, charitable organizations, Facebook Marketplace, TipTapp app.Swedish Death Cleaning versus Decluttering what is the difference?Ongoingness of Swedish Death Cleaning.

  • 7. Staying in a beginners mind with Swedish Death Cleaning

    HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE:  Staying in a beginners mind with my Swedish Death Cleaning SUMMARY OF EPISODE:Tell me who your friends are and I’ll tell you who you are. At the end of our days, what do you think will matter the most? The stuff we chose to hold on to for dear life because it made us feel good to look at and remember the moments that we have created with them OR will we remember the family and friends (sometimes one and the same) that we love the most and who have continually shown up for us during the most difficult times in our lives? Even when the shit hit the fan. Especially when the shit hit the fan.This episode is a practical summary of what I found when I got to Houston to ‘do the work’ with my beloved eldest sister who had hired me to come in from Sweden to do Swedish Death Cleaning and decluttering in her home after her beloved husband Jay passed away on Christmas Eve.The best laid plans, my friend. I am learning that I need to remain flexible, open, empathetic to all sorts of emotions. I can have an itinerary or game plan that is written in pencil, let’s put it that way. Ahh, learning more and more every time. Pay attention, Åsa. Stay fresh in Spirit and open minded and hearted in order to learn new ways of doing old things. Hope you can learn something too.IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:I can not stand to be rushed.Relax into it, don't stress into it.April is the month of Aries, time to clean it up. The “Self”, After a major life change, don’t make any huge decisions for one year. I discovered more clearly how I prefer to work with death cleaning. I am perfectly fine with a set schedule.Started with administrative work: changing names as primary account holders, what accounts need to be cancelled, memberships cancelled. Auditing all your bills and bank statements every month.Add names on accounts today where possible.Making a priority list of where to start, what rooms need the most attention. I have no agenda on what rooms get completed first. In the end they will ALL make a difference (when selling a home). How do I tackle a large closet? I go through this process. Office re-organization for my sisters needs now. New chair. Getting rid of extra screens, etc. making it HER space. Working to ‘adult’ children's rooms.Guest room is now hotelled, new bedding, neutral, cozy. Character is always revealed. Who comes to your side when you're at your lowest? You will be surprised. Hold on tight to them. Decluttering ‘friends’ and ‘family’ is ALSO a part of death cleaning.I give some tips on how to help someone who has just experienced death. Don’t ASK them what you can do, just DO something. Talking with others. The process of discussing what we want and need moving forward.The client determines the pace and timing in their home. Surrendering to the stuff. Does it bring you peace or weigh you down? HOST CONTACT INFORMATION: www.moremosstothepeople,comIG: @AsanilssonswedenFB @asajnilssonYT @asanilssonMENTIONED IN THIS EPISODE:Margareta Magnusson, The Gentle Art of Death Cleaning, the book. CONTACT INFORMATION for KOMEIL ASLI, my Podcast Production Manager: Komeil Asli Freelance UI/UX Designer & Front-End Developer. Like and Follow us on Instagram, @AsaNilssonSweden and YouTube @AsaNilsson.
  • 6. Reckless or Bold? REVELATIONS from CHANIA, GREECE

    HOST: Åsa NilssonTITLE OF EPISODE: Reckless or Bold? REVELATIONS from CHANIA, GREECE SUMMARY OF EPISODE:After traveling to paradise (Chania, Greece) last week with my two girlfriends, I discovered something that has been elusive in my life as of late. Laughter. I mean, deep, soulful, tearful laughter. The kind that bubbles up so easily when you are with people you love and whose company you really enjoy. Experiencing such simple beauty in the local people, the delicious food, the time spent having deep and long conversations about important topics like dreams, life, hopes, love and family. What’s the most important thing in my life? My husband and our relationship. Spending time together choosing our happiness first. Choosing to live life now. Not one day. Not allowing others to determine our lives FOR us. No. Life is now. Swim in the sea. Eat the food. Open your eyes and your heart. Trust that everything will be revealed in its due course. It always has. And it always will.It’s my job to have the vision and to be clear, not vague or unconscious.I am now North Star clear. Are you? IN THIS EPISODE I DISCUSS:Traveling to Chania, Greece with 2 friends, what was that like?When asked to go, what was my initial reaction? Patterns.  When the decision was made to go, all of the sudden everything became easy.Am I getting too stuck in my habitual responses? My husband is leaving his work in June. Is it reckless? “Well, I have a job and I really like my coworkers’. Is that enough?I have a Masters in Observation. Thomas is who I want to spend my time and life with, working together with Swedish Death Cleaning! Why not?!He’s my 2 meter tall man, my viking, he can move mountains. Becoming 100% North Star clear. Is everyone else deciding our lives for us?!Chania, the builder, the materials, pride of country, eat the food, swim in the Mediterranean. What else am I not doing, not exploring, not seeing?We perceive we are in a cage yet the door is not even locked. Feeling outside? Don’t belong, don’t matter? Not rich enough?Abundance is a frame of mind, not an amount of money in your pocket.Don’t judge a book by its cover.We must lead to show others that it’s OK to choose yourself.
