Happy New Clearing

I love the idea of clearing out the old energy and making room for the new. But really, how do you do this and what does it really mean for you?  I don’t believe in New Years’ Resolutions.  I am really all about goals and working on yourself to really figure out what your priorities are and what is most important to you in your life.  I have written lists of goals for myself in the past – check out this blog post from May 2013  http://spaceforyou.ca/2013/05/26/50-things-to-do-this-year/

I actually achieved most of these goals.  While I don’t suggest that you need to come up with 25 or even 50, these goals whether small or large can be quite achievable when you become really clear on what you want for yourself.  It can be quite surprising really!!

Having goals for yourself really means honouring yourself and looking at what is important to you. It means taking the time to figure out how you can be the best you, you can be. This is an ongoing process and not one that starts on this date or that date.  It is who you are and who you want to be in this world.

It means looking at the past and honouring what has happened and learning from these life lessons. The past is a great teacher if we are only able to see it this way without huge regrets. If there are huge regrets (and I am sure we all have them) then how can we deal with them and move on.  The past cannot be changed but we do have control about our present and our future.  In fact, I love this thought.

“Clutter is a way of hanging on to the past and a worry about the future”

As I left work on New Years Eve a co-worker gave me this: (author unknown)

* I release all things from the past year that have caused any negative attachment.

* I prepare and welcome new changes, new lessons and new adventures.

* I welcome new opportunities to grow emotionally, mentally and spiritually.

This is what I call “doing the work” and I believe we need to focus and revisit this on a regular basis. I am excited to create a new vision and new goals for myself to create my new 2016.  What are some of the ways you challenge yourself to move forward to be the best you you can be?  Would you like to learn more about clearing out old energy?

About Kimberley

I am a Case Manager at My Sisters’ Place which is a program of the Canadian Mental Health Association London Middlesex. My Sisters’ Place is a program for vulnerable women. I love my job and all the wonderful women I work with. I am very honored to do this work with women who have been through so much and are so open in sharing their stories.
I initiated and designed a Clearing Clutter Support Group which I have been facilitating since 2007 with a co-worker. I love running this group and learn so much from the participants. We offer this eight week program three or four times a year.
I started my business Space For You in 2010 and work with individuals in their homes as well as offer some workshops in the community. I am available to speak to groups on “De-Cluttering Your Life”, “The Magic of De-Cluttering”, “Space Clearing” or really anything to do with clutter and hoarding.

    I agree that this is a perspective, something we need to nourish and repeatedly invest in. Some years I have particular goals, other years life is uncertain and I am more about staying open to what lies ahead.

    • Kim says:

      Thanks Seana.. I find that even with set goals I find they have a life of their own and change over time. We just cannot predict what is going to happen so it is good to be open to the possibilities. Thanks for your comment.

  2. You are very brave, posting all your goals for all the world to see – talk about accountability! Maybe I need to do this…

    • Kim says:

      Oh thank you Janet. I guess it was a little bold at the time. I keep them more private these days. It does help with the accountability though for sure. Thanks for commenting.

    I like “I release all things from the past year that have caused any negative attachment”. That is not always easy to do for some people but it is great advice. Thank you for sharing.

  4. Kim says:

    So true. If only it was easier we would all be happier. So nice to hear from you. Thank you.

  5. I like the statement, “I prepare and welcome new changes…” They say change is the only constant; it’s best to work with it and not against it. Happy New Year, Kim!

  6. Excellent Kim! Several of my clients have experienced trauma in their lives. They are trying to separate from the abuse, death, or other pain that has come into their lives. Empowering these women is more than holding a bag for them to toss belongings associated with deep hurt; it’s about helping them to let go of the emotional pain so that they can create space to receive love once again.

    • Kimberley says:

      Yes, that is more of the work that I love to do with clients. Often we need to deal with the emotional hurt before we can move on to actually moving the physical clutter or to allow something positive into our lives. Thanks so much for your comment.

  7. Beautiful post Kim! It’s so strange because this is exactly how I am feeling this year! I am learning to be thankful for life experiences even if they are hard because they have made me the person I am today. Thank you for saying what I am feeling!

    Thank you so much Autumn. That is great to hear that my post resonated with you.
