Some families felt an economic pinch this year and are wondering if the New Year will be any better. I am so grateful that I experienced growth in 2012 in my business, closer relationships, fun adventures, all with surprising life balance. It was our most prosperous year yet.
While there are many ways to bring about a financial turnaround in your life, you want to start with the basics. One fundamental way you can bring more success into your life is to Clear Out Clutter. This is a very simple thing to do, so simple that you might even shrug it off. Don’t get taken out that easily. Welcome your prosperity, and play with this powerful practice.
How successful do you feel when your house or office is a mess? That mess is a reflection of what is going on inside your head. The cool thing is that it’s a two-way street. When you tidy up in your physical world, you create calm and confidence within. You also bring more harmony to your family life and relationships. Can clearing out clutter actually do that? Yes!
Releasing clutter can be challenging, especially if you have had a significant loss in your life. People who have had a major loss, tend to hold on more tightly. This is a process of trust, in God and in yourself. Clutter is anything you do not love, use, or anything that does not honor who you are. While it might feel like you are in a better position because of all the stuff you have, think of all the extra mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical weight you are carrying because of it. It may have served a purpose before. Ask yourself does it serve a purpose now?
As you release clutter, it may make things easier to think of it as adding to another person’s prosperity. I recently went through my home and released another few bags of clothes, toys, and linens. I felt happy to give what I had to charity and then to experience the lightness and space and ease at home.
If you want to take things a step further, you can intentionally prepare your space to receive more blessings. If you want nice clothes, make sure there is space in your closet and drawers for them. If you want more clients, prepare your files. As you are doing so, imagine what it would feel like to already be that successful, and let that feeling linger.
The New Year is as good a time as any to get your affairs in order. I encourage you to do so, joyfully! Clear out the clutter, make room for everything you want in life, and have the best year ever!
