Spring is usually considered the time of hope, promise and renewal but, it all starts in autumn. Autumn is the time of death that will bring life; the beginning of change and transformation. It’s time to let go, just like the leaves that have hung on to the trees through the summer’s heat, drought and storms. Now is the time to release and dance in the winds of change.
To have something new, start by clearing out the physical clutter. It’s a long winter in Canada, you don’t want to look at that clutter for the next six months. Start your personal “weekly give away”; give away at least one thing a week. If you do this between now and spring, at least 20 people will benefit from your generosity.
Spend some quality time thinking about what you want to have in your life next spring. If you’re not living your “ideal life”, what do you need to change? What beliefs, thought patterns and even relationships do you need to release to discover your dreams and desires so that you create the life you really want?
I must warn you, this could get messy. To clean a closet, everything must come out into the room. Every piece is evaluated: does it have negative memories or energy, does it serve me and do I even want it? Is it contributing to my dreams and desires? All the items going back into the closet must be needed, necessary and add value.
Re-structure the order of things and you will automatically re-structure the order in your mind. Sorting out a closet will often clear a problem from your mind to find an unexpected solution, expanded freedom and a new way of thinking.
Send me your “renewal and transformation” stories; I would love to hear them.
To Your ZEST!
