These days (at 32) I'm as you describe: I have a horrible time doing ritual (or writing, or a few other kinds of things) when things are untidy.
Whereas I got something quite different from Aidan's question:  that he, generally speaking, is fine with, and even prefers, the untidiness (at least up to a point), but the books he's reading are all saying, "If your space is untidy, it indicates that your mind and practice are sloppy!  Can't practice without a tidy space, it's improper and will mess up your ritual!  But if you tidy your space, it will automatically follow that your mind/practice are tidy!"  Not in so many words, but that's how it comes across - I'm an untidy-but-organized person myself (with a tidy-but-disorganized mother), so the implication that the appearance of neatness was more important to my witchiness than either being comfortable or being able to find stuff really ticked me off, back when I was young and relatively new to this stuff.

Since my reading of the question may be influenced by my own biases on the subject, I'll leave it at that until Aidan clarifies.
