Since we all basically know that change is coming, sooner or later, what can we do to prepare for it?
One huge thing is to simplify our lives so that when the change comes it will flow more easily. It can fit, integrate, adjust more smoothly and effortlessly into our lives.
Simplifying can mean letting go of things in our physical environment that we don't need or use anymore (and maybe never did!). Or, it can mean eliminating activities in our lives which do not support positive change. Unnecessary meetings, clubs, social groups or even individual people at times can clutter up our time management attempts, so better sometimes to just say "no", at least for now.
For me, it's my garage that needs my attention, and I have been giving it that. Twenty years in one place, being an artist and one with a wide variety of interests, means my garage has been a magnet for material objects of interest to no one but me. But, am I the same "me" that put them there years ago, decades ago? No, not really.
The truth is I have changed, and likely so have you. We probably all have "stuff"' around our homes, in our closets, garages, attics that needs to go to Good Will or something like that, maybe our local second hand shop.
There are people who will appreciate and even wear that sweater that never was the right color for you, (and besides that it made you "itch").
Old cosmetics tend to collect, bath oils with cheap, gagging scents, herbs that dried out decades ago, pots with scratched teflon bottoms, canned food that has been outdated for years, books, God forbid piles of old magazines, old hobby items (I just gave away a bunch of old oil paints as I never did enjoy working with oils and they never go dry!) What about that beautiful sequinned jacket? Ever going to fit in that again, and who wears sequins now? Shoes, really, are you going to actually wear those high heels again? They have not been worn in ten years! Pictures in frames not hung on walls that never will be. Like the picture/photo, good, take it out of the frame and recycle it. I could go on and on, all because I have experience with all this :). Too much experience :).
I know I feel so much better when I simplify, organize and clean up different parts and places in my life. Others say the same thing. It is a way of making space both figuratively and phychically for "the new" to come in. No two things can fit in the same space, the same way that your brain cannot think two thoughts at the same time. That is why it is good to "think" on lovely things, positive thoughts only. Then no negative ones can "occupy" your attention.
What can you simplify today? What part of your home, office, car, workshop, garage, kitchen drawers, etc? If you start with one small place you may realize you are energized to move on and work to clean up another place! It kind of becomes exciting and makes you feel happy.
Your head is always another great place to clean up and unclutter. When things continually bug you, annoy you, frustrate you, anger you, drain you, it is definitely time to change your thoughts and beliefs about something. It is your higher self's way of prompting you to let go of something, or someone, in order to regain emotional and mental balance and peace of mind.
So, what will it be for you today? Where will you give yourself the gift of accomplishment, which will then in turn give you the gifts of a lightness of being, feeling happy and peacefully fulfilled? I would enjoy hearing back from any of you who actually feel motivated to act. Share with me, with others, what you did and how it made you feel.
For me; I have my creative space to tackle today. I have been busy there and when I am busy there, I make a big mess. It's time for clearing, organizing, and getting ready for my next burst of creativity.
I hope this has helped some of you out there. :)
Onward........ in preparation for upcoming, awesome change....
