You're a hoarder

You're a hoarder

Your house overflows with stuff you don't need but can't bring yourself to get rid of. You may have lived in ancient Egypt and believed you could keep you possessions, even after your death. Alternatively, you were poor on a past life and that droves you to hoard things now. Consider counselling to help you feel more secure and let go of some of the clutter in your life.

You lean toward hoarding but are still in control.

Get more organised and be more ruthless when it comes to throwing things out. Your past life was almost certainly in medieval England or Rome, where possessions conveyed status. It's fine to keep some favourites but be discerning. Take photos of sentimental objects which you can frame, and then pass the objects on to someone who needs them.

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

Your house is organised and you have no problem letting go of things you no longer need. In your past life you were a native American Indian or a nomad in a tribe in Africa or New Guinea. As every item had to be carried, things were valued for their usefulness above all else. The culture you feel most connected to will be the one you experienced. In this life, you probably love to travel - light!
