What's Next?

Making Room

Every aspect of your life is anchored energetically in your living space, so clearing your clutter can completely transform your entire existence.”
Karen Kingston

Sometimes we feel a strong internal urge to get rid of things. This often manifests as clearing clutter and getting rid of material stuff in our lives. I've experienced this phenomenon many times. I feel myself wanting to throw out or give away everything I own—clean sweep. Do you ever feel that way? As though having fewer things to take out and put away, to sort, to straighten, to dust, would make life less stressful? I could breathe easier if there weren't carpets to vacuum, dishes to wash, meaningless knick-knacks to dust. It's not so much that I hate house work—I love my house, especially when it's clean—but there's too much of it. And that's because, there's too much in it.

Being anchored energetically in our living space means that when our external environment is cluttered and chock full of stuff, our biological energy is cluttered, too. We go from room to room, trying to decide what to do first, and end up doing very little, because we're overwhelmed by the scale of the task. When our energy is in a tangle, we feel confused, indecisive, at odds, out of sorts, off kilter. In other words, it messes with our heads.

Here's an anonymous quote I saw on-line just now that gives some good advice: “Create space in your head, heart and life. To create some new possibilities start to ask yourself: What is working? What's not? What do I want? What's next?” Sometimes, when we get this overwhelming urge to clear out our exterior space, it is because we are making room for what comes next internally. Like a snake shedding its old skin in order to grow, we clean out the attic and basement, mentally and physically, to allow something new to come in. We toss out a lot of outdated ideas and unwanted limits to our belief system in order to go beyond what has been before. We let go of whatever fear is holding us back. There has probably been sufficient reason to hold on to these notions in the past, but now they are only obstacles to progress, so we bless them and let them go.

Your living space is more than your house or apartment. It is the entirety of you. Clear the clutter. Something new is waiting to be born.
