So there was a definite theme over the last few months of lots of people (including myself) going a bit wild and suddenly feeling the urge to declutter.
We were throwing away, selling or donating anything within sight!
This has all come from the huge planetary shifts which are going on, which is making us very present and looking at material things very objectively.
What was once OK, is suddenly not OK and it must be gone, NOW!
I'm talking I'd be about to fall asleep, and I had the sudden urge to go through my bedside cabinet drawers, to throw out that assortment of crap we ladies like to accumulate (lip balms, ear plugs, old hair ties amongst other things!).
The reason why this is so important now, is we are literally getting rid of the old in order to make way for the new.
Letting go of physical stuff is critical in allowing the space to attract in what you really want in your life, i.e. ABUNDANCE.
It is amazing the amount of stuff we hold onto, just in case we might need it again one day. This is sending a massive message of LACK to the universe.
You are saying "I think I might be too poor in the future to be able to afford to buy this again if I need it". Or "I might fit into these pants again one day".
So, be BRAVE! Throw away that old sports gear from the game you loved to play, and hope to get back into one day.
That is the old you, the new you is interested in different things. And hey, if you do need it again one day, just buy another one in that present moment.
Donate those pants and the irony is, the emotional charge that was perhaps keeping you locked into the unhealthy pattern, may actually begin to shift.
This also keeps the flow of energy alive. Giving that item to someone who actual needs and wants it NOW, in the present moment, is so important.
There are loads of great blogs and books out there about living a more minimalist lifestyle, such as The Minimalists.
I like to apply the rule of 'Do I need it? Do I love it?' If my answer is no to both, then I get rid of it. Or in other words, 'use it or lose it!'.
I have always enjoyed the idea of having less stuff, but I've only recently made the link between letting go of stuff in order to allow ourselves to emotionally and financially move forward.
All the affirmations in the world of 'I am abundant' will not be doing much good, until you let go of physical stuff.
And this doesn't just apply to material things, but also to letting go of things such as money.
Have you ever wondered why generous people just seem to be lucky with money and attract abundance? It's because they give easily, and therefore receive easily.
This also applies to paying our taxes.
You aren't just paying the tax man, you are paying your required share to the authority deemed best fit to distribute the funds back into our community. Your money pays for our hospitals, schools, roads, police and emergency services, supporting the disabled and much more. Of course, the government may not always make best use of our money but that is beyond our control.
I've also encountered new business owners refusing to use a card reader machine to charge clients, because they don't want to pay the service fee.
Other than obviously making it eaiser for clients, so they don't have to go the ATM before the session, it is another example of 'poverty consciousness' or 'lack mentality' coming through. As in "I can't afford to lose a few dollars in order to make $ X". A better way to look at it is, 'this small fee is allowing me to provide the best kind of service I can, and is allowing me to make $ X".
So let go of some things today and send a clear command to the universe that "I AM READY TO RECEIVE NEW ENERGY INTO MY LIFE!"
It's all just food for thought, I hope you got something out of this :)
With love and hugs,
