Happy New Year, everyone! It is time for new beginnings. Put 2018 behind you, keep the love and the lessons and lay down the plans for what you want to manifest.
Can’t get stirred up for that yet? Did you stir too many cocktails the night before? Suck down some Alka-Seltzer and get to bed early and let your dreams open you to the possibilities.
Still can’t get there? It might be time to look at your surroundings and see if chaos and clutter are keeping you from moving forward.
Chaos is negative energy. Clutter creates chaos. So it stands to reason that your clutter is keeping you stuck. It is time to purge the sh*t that is no longer relevant to your life. Start by looking in your closets and dresser drawers. If you haven’t worn it in the last two years, because it doesn’t fit or you don’t like it, then get rid of it. Keeping it out of guilt or the idea that “it will fit someday” just keeps you bogged down in too much stuff. And just think, if you get rid of what you don’t need, you make room for things that you love and feel good wearing. The positive side is that if you donate your items, someone else will benefit and love what you have let go of.
Make a full sweep of your kitchen. How about that pasta machine that you tried and hated? Or those chipped and cracked dishes? Chips and cracks represent weak foundations. Don’t you want your food to support you? Ratty old dish towels and smelly sponges need to find a new home in the trash. Get rid of what you don’t need and you will feel lighter and a healthier mindset will form.
How about those bathrooms? Expired meds need to go to the pharmacy or prescription drop off, especially old, unused painkillers. Pretty bath soaps are pretty if you use them, otherwise they just collect dust. Makeup you don’t like, and so what if you only used that lipstick once. If the color is bad for you, it isn’t going to change while it is hiding in the back of the drawer. Leaky faucet? That represents money going down the drain. Same thing with the toilet. And by the way, everyone – not just the guys – must close the lid. That is the biggest energetic loss of money.
Once you purge the kitchen and bathrooms, give them a good cleaning so you open the energy to good health.
Go through the garage like Sherman going through Atlanta. Yes, I mean it. If you can’t get your car in the garage you have too much sh*t. If you have moved in the last 10 years, and you still have unopened boxes sitting in there, then you probably don’t need what’s in them. I’ll give you a pass if it is being used as a workspace, but if you want to draw more prosperity to you it will also need a good purging.
And finally all those momentos. Oh, that is difficult I know. Don’t try and guilt your family members into taking that stuff. They didn’t want it, which is why you have it. Photos can be scanned and stored electronically. If you really want to annoy your family, send them a copy of that Christmas picture when you all wore those matching sweaters. You know the one. Mementos are memories and are all stored in your brain. Gifts are all about the moment of the giving and that someone thought of you. You don’t have to keep it forever.
Purging is good for the body, mind and soul. When you release old things, things that no longer serve you, give thanks for the time you had them and how they supported you. You release all the energy that was collected in that space, which turns to negative when it is not used. Too much junk makes you feel junky and who wants that?
And maybe, some of that junk could be sold, giving you a little cash to start your new year with prosperity.
