Happy Spring! You know what this means: time for SPRING CLEANING!!
Hmm, I think I hear some grumbling. Why does it feel so hard for us to let go of things that we know no longer serve us like bad habits, false or limiting beliefs, past hurts, and unhealthy relationships? I believe it’s because we are creatures of habit and prefer familiarity – it feels safer to stick with what we know and are accustomed to than to venture out into the unknown. BUT in the unknown is where our future lies.
Now what that future will look like depends on how we prepare for it. If you like where you are then keep doing the same things. If you don’t like where you are then do something different already. Stop moaning and groaning and actually change by speaking and behaving differently. Turn away from that which is hurting you and keeping you in a seemingly bottomless pit. You are the only one who can save yourself as you are the master of your mind, body and heart. And you have the help of your intuition, that still small voice within that will guide you to your highest good, if you allow it.
Mel’s Two Cents: You can start by cleaning out your environment of clutter, dust and dirt. The things around us that we look at and interact with every day affects us. Get rid of anything that you do not use regularly or absolutely love. Allow feelings and memories to surface and pass through you as you trash or donate the item(s). You can even say a silent thank you to the item for serving you and send it on it’s way in peace. Then give the place a good dusting and wash. Finally sit, breathe deeply and enjoy the feeling of peace and space you’ve created for yourself. Then dream up something really good you’d like to start moving towards. Play with these new ideas in your mind, write them down and take any inspired action that comes to you. Follow what feels good and exciting, a little nervousness is OK as you are venturing into new territory, just continue to follow your joy and tune out the naysayers.
Take your time with this as it can stir up some emotions you’ve been avoiding. Don’t put pressure on yourself by trying to do to much at once or giving yourself strict deadlines. Be easy, kind and patient with yourself, try to bring a sense of humor and lightness to the task and pace yourself. And after each little bit you accomplish, give yourself a pat on the back and reward yourself with a healthy treat to celebrate.
Go forth and purge my friends, make space in your mind, heart and environment for something new and wondrous and miraculous.
Happy spring cleaning!
Until next time.
