Space Clearing is about energy and awareness. Clearing the clutter is actually the first step in Space Clearing. It is about our relationship to our physical and emotional stuff. Both can get in the way of what we want for our lives. Most of us can relate to our physical attachments to our stuff. It’s tangible, we know it is there, we can see it and we know how hard it is to let go of. Of course, sometimes our physical stuff can be invisible too, it is in the back of that closet or under that pile and we just don’t really notice it anymore. In some cases we might not even know what we have in those boxes. That is “stuck energy”. What happens when you start moving that stuff? The idea of moving the stuff can be more stressful than actually moving it. But starting to deal with it and move it gets the energy going. And I don’t mean just moving the stuff around your place. That keeps you busy but you are not really getting anywhere.
Space Clearing is about allowing yourself to take your time, feel your feelings and to be conscious about the decisions you are making. I know this isn’t easy but give yourself permission to go at your own pace. This might mean not being attached to a huge project, the end result or making a big difference right away. You may recall me talking about this expression that we use in our groups “Small is Huge” which in clearing clutter as long as you keep at it, eventually it will make a difference.
Moving slowly helps you to pay attention to what is happening with your thoughts and your emotions and what is happening in your body. Yes, this might bring up some tough thoughts and feelings but once you can feel them, notice they are there, allow them, you will notice that they will change and you will be able to let them go. That is clearing!!!
This is one of the reasons I love yoga and meditation. It allows me to focus on my breathing and helps me to have some space between my thoughts which helps me to think more clearly and gives me inspiration.
We can really only focus on one thing at a time, so what is your focus? What is the one thing that you can pay attention to today and make one change?
