Reclaim Your Space
Change your environment.
Even the smallest change can have a big impact. Whether we clean something, plant something, throw stuff out or just fold the pile of clean clothes hanging over the chair (yes, we all do that), don't you feel a sense of accomplishment after doing it?
That's the plan for today. Not the whole day. Just a little, tiny, manageable portion of the day.
Rearranging the books on the shelves or finally taking out the recycling bin can give us a feeling of taking control of . . . something. At a time when you may not feel like you have control of much, it's a small step in the right direction.
Small steps are all we need to take. Because guess what? They add up! Thankfully.
My intention is to help you take the small steps forward and minimize the back steps. Those are great for dance moves, but not great when you're trying to move forward in your life and make your way through a challenge. If you are slipping on those back steps please don't beat yourself up over it. You won't be like that forever. If you're indulging in the sweets, the social distraction, trying to bury yourself with busy work or any other 'overdoing' it behavior like shopping or even working out, it's usually a sign there's something out of balance emotionally.
Try to channel that energy into something constructive like cleaning, rearranging or purging some stuff that's cluttering up the energetic flow in your life.
One of my favorite tools to use when I don't really want to do something:
Set a timer.
Not so jazzed about this little suggestion of organizing, purging, sorting or folding? Set a timer for 15 minutes and then you're done!
The timer helps me for a lot of tasks I'm not thrilled about doing. Give it a try and let me know how it goes.
The metaphysical explanation for why it feels good to get rid of stuff or move it around is called the vacuum law, often called the vacuum law of prosperity. Basically, since all matter in the Universe is made up of energy, and energy can never be created or destroyed, when we get rid of something - we are making space for something new, whether it's a new attitude or feeling, experience or a physical thing.
Energy can get stagnant. You've probably felt this within your own body when you're feeling drained and then perk up after going for a walk. Or if you've walked into a room where nothing has changed for years and years, you can feel the stillness or stagnant energy. It weighs you down, it’s oppressive. One of the easiest ways to shift the energy in your space is open the windows wide, move the drapes and shades to the side to let all the light and breeze into your space.
Just for today, try one of these things; change your sheets, put out fresh towels, open a window, blast some music, burn some incense or a candle of your favorite fragrance, buy some flowers for yourself and enjoy a bit of a refresh in your environment.
If you're feeling ambitious, why not move around some furniture. That's a sure way to change up the energy in your space. This is especially helpful if you are no longer sharing space with someone you loved, or had a challenging housemate relationship you’d like to cleanse.
If any of that feels like too much, why not clean out the car or your desk. Even just cleaning out a few kitchen drawers will give you a sense of accomplishment and that you've taken action.
We're letting go of the old and creating space for the new.
When you see the color green today, please be reminded of renewal and how wonderful it will feel to bring new energy into your life.
How to remember this?
Look at the trees
Make avocado toast for breakfast
Have pesto for dinner
Take good care of your heart and soul,
