Is the ‘clutter’ in YOUR life, preventing you from experiencing the life of your dreams and blocking the Universe from making your Law of Attraction Deliveries?
There are lots of amazing blogs encouraging us to ‘clear the clutter’, both mentally and physically from our lives and yet it sometimes feels easier said than done and we continue to hold onto the physical and mental clutter that is blocking us from living the life we dream of.
We often fill our minds with negative voices, we hold onto relationships or friendships that have seen better days and we fill our drawers, cupboards with ‘crap’, that may just come in useful one day never….. Oh I’ve had so many of those ‘junk rooms’ in my mind, my home and my work over the years….
Well not any more! I realised some time ago that the ‘junk’ I was holding onto was indeed ‘holding me back’. I have a sign on the wall of my summerhouse (My Brilliance Within Hut…)
Creating my Vision Boards, enables my ‘heart’ to speak.. and yet it’s strange how I can add my dreams onto the board – inspired by the pictures or words that shout out to me and yet still I forget to listen to the whispers… However, the beauty of Vision Boarding and the Law of Attraction is that having added something to your board, the Universe will start to create opportunities to enable those ‘dreams’ to be fulfilled.
Have you ever heard the saying: “Be careful what you wish for”…. well that has lot of truth in it. When I added onto my Vision Board in December 2015 that my dream was to be self employed, to have a blog, to master Public Speaking etc., I saw this as maybe something that would happen once I’d retired in a few years time… I should’ve known from previous experience that the Universe would set to work immediately to deliver my wishes…. and to push me well and truly out of my ‘work’ comfort zone that really had become a very ‘uncomfortable comfort zone’….
I’ve been on a major ‘de-clutter’ exercise in my life over the last year, clearing out the crap and even when I’ve tried to cling on or feared the change, one way or another, I’ve been forced to let go and take a ‘leap of faith’ which entailed letting go of my career to make space for NEW BEGINNINGS…
Earlier today, I finally tackled the last remnants of one of my ‘junk rooms’ – an enormous pile of papers from my old job that have been staring at me meanly for the last few months… These were unpleasant reminders and yet for some reason, I couldn’t face clearing through them.. until today. It reminded me of many times over the years where I’ve known in my heart that something wasn’t right, that I needed to change my direction and yet I kept holding onto the wrong energy for fear of just letting go.
Even though I’ve practiced the Law of Attraction really successfully for the last few years, I still cling on when I know I should ‘have faith’ and let go. However, I’ve also learned that if I put something on my Vision Board, then one way or another, I’ll be pushed to move in the ‘right direction’ which will enable me to clear the way for the new things that are ‘en route’…..
Clearing that pile of papers and burning them on a symbolic bonfire has finally enabled me to let go and release the last remaining negative thoughts that were mingled in with those scraps of paper and…. Wow….. how wonderful it felt to just gather it all up and throw it away. I literally felt lighter once it was completed – I experienced a massive release of negative energy that has been pulling me backwards for too long…
Finally letting go of the negativity that was engrained in those papers gave me an immediate sense of freedom and a rush of excitement. at the prospect of the new challenges waiting for me to enjoy. I can feel myself emerging once more, rising like a Phoenix from the flames of the bonfire – my true self finally seeing the light of day!
What clutter have you not dealt with?
Take a look around your home, car and workspace – Do they look cluttered, messy or in disarray? If so, this is likely to be a sign that you are also suffering from ‘mental clutter’. The physical environment often reflects how your feeling. When it’s messy, it’s likely you are in a negative spiral and the more gloomy you feel, the more cluttered your home and workspace are likely to become. Negative thoughts seem to breed a negative ‘space’ around you too..
Take a few moments to review:
- Are the conversations with those close to you positive or negative. Think about recent conversations with your friends, lovers, family, colleagues – do you come away feeling inspired or sapped of energy?
- Listen to the conversation you’re having within your own head – Do you hear those ‘negative voices’ creeping in… “Why does this crap always seem to happen to me?…”
- Do you feel that people don’t love you enough or respect you enough etc…
- Are you ending your day feeling happy, confident, self assured or do you feel stressed and exhausted?
- When you look around your home, car or workspace, are they ‘clear’ or ‘cluttered’?
It may be piles of papers, messy cupboards, the ‘junk room’…… OR it may be the cluttered mind… those negative thoughts that won’t go away, the relationship that’s seen better days…… What’s Your Clutter? Whatever it is, you need to ACT NOW to clear space within your mind and your environment in order to change the negative vibration to a positive vibration.
If you have areas of your life, home, workspace or your mind, that are full of ‘rubbish’, then you haven’t got the ‘space’ to receive the amazing deliveries that the Law of Attraction is waiting to deliver.
Taking action to clear the crap is critical to how successful you will be in attracting the life of your dreams.
Have you ever experienced issues and you know in your heart that you need to ‘close a door’ and although you open the door to move through, you can’t help keeping your ‘foot in the door’ and you keep one foot in the past and one in the future?
- It can be hard to find the courage to move both feet through the door and close it firmly shut behind you and yet it’s only when you do, that you will experience the true value of the Law of Attraction. You have to be committed to making the changes needed to free your life from the negative blocks that have been holding you back.
I read somewhere recently that one of the worst things is when your life is ‘ok’ or ‘good’, because this is the path of mediocrity. Where we ‘make do’ because things aren’t ‘too bad’… This was the case for me recently with my DIY Kitchen disaster and it was a bit of a lightbulb moment for me when I realised that I was trying to ‘make do and mend’ rather than throw out the old to make space for the new. Yes – I’d put a ‘new kitchen’ on my Vision Board and yet when it came to it, I felt ‘guilty’ spending money on a new kitchen and was trying to ‘make do’…
However, the Universe clearly had other plans and my DIY makeover took a nasty turn for the worse… It’s often the times when we hit our lowest point, that we’re finally forced to take our foot out of the ‘limbo land’ door and push through the door that has been blocking our path to an amazing future…DIY Disaster Part 2: Sometimes Things Have To Get Worse Before Getting Better…
I certainly recognise this over the last couple of years. I’d continued running faster and faster on my ‘hamsters wheel’, because I feared jumping off. It was only when I experienced an extreme situation, that I was forced to really take a step back and look at my life and realise that it was time to ‘jump off’ the wheel and face a different future than the one I’d previously committed my mind to. I’d been stuck on the wheel for too long, when my heart had been telling me to ‘jump off’.
When I’d created my Vision Board, a couple of years ago and I’d added onto it, the things I felt I’d love to do.. start my blog, work from home, write a book, public speaking etc. I still hadn’t recognised that to achieve these things, my career path would need to change dramatically. I didn’t think too much more about those things I’d pasted onto my board, as I was too busy working, to think about how I’d achieve my dreams…
A series of unexpected events began to unfold, that forced me to make a massive change in my life…. and yet I continued to ‘hold on’ to my past, to keep my ‘foot in the door’. However, eventually, the Universe gave me the almighty ‘shove’ I needed to force me through the door to a new future..
Sometimes it’s hard to make the change and to let go of the past, even if it’s been a challenging or emotionally draining experience and yet once we close the door properly – with no going back, my experience is that the Universe will immediately deliver a ‘sign’ to let us know that an amazing new journey lies ahead.
Having kept a foot in the door for over a year, when I finally took the action necessary to close the door and opted to take redundancy from my job, as I posted the signed papers, it was like an elastic band that had been getting tighter and tighter around my chest suddenly snapped. As the letter dropped into the post box, that ‘tension’ immediately released. A mass of negative energy was finally discharged.. I’d free’d up the space needed for the Law of Attraction to work it’s magic..
As a sign from the Universe, that I was on the right path, the very next morning, I received a phonecall, completely out of the blue, offering me a new opportunity to work as a freelance Auditor in a specialist field that I’d worked in a few years ago.. How exciting!
It means I’ll be able to fulfil some of the other dreams on my Vision Board, because now I’ve let go of the old clutter and created the ‘space’ to allow new things into my life..
Over the last year, I’ve had the time to clear my physical environment which had become messy and disorganised and left me feeling ‘negative’ if I spent time in it.. Maybe that’s why subconsciously I was working harder and spending less time at home..
With each area that has been transformed, I’ve felt ‘lighter’ and increasingly more able to tackle the next pile of rubbish…
The negative thoughts have been replaced with optimistic thoughts and feelings. I’ve lost some old friends and colleagues along my journey and yet I recognise that this was the ‘right thing’ to happen, in order to create space for meeting new and amazing people who will share the next phase of my journey through life.. as I head for my dreams and enjoy the deliveries that are definitely ‘en route’…. I’ve had the time to create my blog and have met some wonderfully inspiring blog friends along the way.. This wouldn’t have been possible if I’d continued spending time in a negative environment and with negative people… those ‘naysayers’….
Consider whether there are any doors you’re holding open with your ‘back foot’ rather than stepping forward into the future?
- Clearing your physical environment will start to clear some of the negative energy that is holding your mind in a negative space. Tackle the rubbish one bagful at a time and you’ll be surprised how much better you will start to feel.
- Tackle the root of the emotions holding you back – what ‘limiting beliefs’ are you perpetuating? Are ‘BELIEFS’ Holding You Back?
- Consider whether the relationship you have with ‘old friends’ are still working – If not, either let them go or re-ignite the candle and make some positive changes to the conversations you have – put some energy into creating a new level of friendship…
- Watch out for the ‘signals’ that are highlighting the new paths. If you keep ignoring the early signals, it’s likely you’ll feel a ‘shove’ from the Universe one way or another! When you feel the ‘push’, be aware, take note – listen to your heart!
Your dreams are waiting for you to clear the negative energy to release space for the new experiences… I feel excited – DO YOU?
