You have heard me say 2019 is a year of renewal. Yet, this is also a year of karmic closures and endings. You are bringing new aspects of yourself into the world. To do that, you must release yourself from past beliefs, relationships and circumstances that no longer nourish your soul.
Karmic Clearing for New Beginnings….this starts not only with YOU, but with what and who you are surrounded with in your life!
Check out your bedroom for instance, and each drawer, and your wardrobe. Is there ANYTHING in here that is not serving you and your highest good? Please let go of STUFF that is cluttering up YOU in the NOW, that is from that past. This includes keeping clothes that ‘I might fit back into one day’, or clothes that you used to wear and love, and you keep, but they have outlived their use and now need to be donated to someone who can use them…shoes also fall into this category.
Now, go into your kitchen. Each drawer and cupboard in here holds things. Are they all things which you have absolutely used in the last three months? Are you simply storing them? Only keep that which you regularly use. There is no need to keep things for a special occasion…your life is an occasion….use it because it IS SPECIAL…..and enjoy it! Everyday! Otherwise, if it is simply taking up space, go through each drawer one at a time, and empty it of anything you don’t use.
I remember when my Mother had passed away and my Dad moved house, all of us children helped in the move and in clearing out that which Mum had kept in their cupboards….and there were new towels in there, and sheets and so many ‘special’ things that NEVER got used, or appreciated, because they were TOO GOOD. We girls decided they needed to see the light of day, and helped DAD get rid of his old tatty towels and replace them with the new ones, and we encouraged him to start using so many other TOO GOOD TO USE things, and finally get some enjoyment from them!
Do the same with your home office. You are required to keep copies of documents that support your tax form that is filed each year. In Australia it used to be that you needed to keep these for 7 years, now it is 4 years. So, go back, and get rid of that which you no longer need to keep. Also declutter your paperwork. If there is anything that can be stored instead on a computer and then onto a separate hard drive that you continually back up from your computer, and thereby keep a record of digitally instead of physically; please look into this, and see what you can do.
Do 15 minutes a day towards your goal of clearing and don’t overwhelm yourself all at once!
There may be toxic people in your life. Only YOU can determine which people around you love and support you wholeheartedly, and which ones disempower you just with a remark or a feeling you get from them. Try to weed out those ‘friends’ who are not really there for you – you will know who they are – and do your best to avoid being their doormat or the person they download all THEIR shit onto! It is time to do this.
This Karmic Clearing of all things and people from your life is something only you can do…although when you have boxes of heavy books to carry out to donate to the local charity, please ask for help so you don’t have to do it all by yourself!
Choose when to do each room in your house, and THEN break it down into smaller sections. Don’t go into overwhelm, just do 15 minutes a day, set a kitchen timer to help, and GO for it! The same goes for your garage, your workspace or wherever it is that you need to clear out the past….just to make way for a lighter, brighter and easier life. There is less dusting to do and less maintenance when you clear out…all good!
The emotional clearing may take longer, but if you find yourself feeling locked into a cycle of negativity, or anxiety, get help from a practitioner or counsellor if necessary, but DO something to break your old patterning and habitual worrying. Try to be positive. Smile in the mirror when you walk past….and say ‘I like you’ to yourself!
Hang out only with those kind people who love, nourish and support you positively. Have you found yourself in a group of ‘friends’ who all seem to speak about one calamity or another, or that continue to gossip about others? It does your heart so much good to hang out instead with people who cherish you, and that make you smile. Your choice.
And I know I have made this sound simplistic, and it definitely is not, especially if the ‘bane of your life’ is a relative or parent or sibling. All I can say from experience is that if someone is ‘in my space’ and I do not feel great when I am around them, then I use this saying; ‘I wish you well….and I wish you on your way.’ Another thing you can do with hurtful people is to freeze them out….literally….write their name and place that piece of paper in your freezer with your intent to freeze them out of your life…and it works!
I hope I have at least given you some ideas in order for you to be more able to RENEW in this year of renewal 2019. To move forward, sometimes we need to clear out that which no longer serves us, so just do your best.
When you have cleared, and closed doors on emotions or people, notice how much ‘lighter’ you and your home or workspace or garage feels! It feels emptier but sooo much better too. Remember too that the Universe abhors a vacuum, so when you clear out, please replace the energy of the room with better free-flowing 100% energetic light energy. Just ask and assume it is done.
You can also help in clearing a room of ‘negative energies or feelings’ by using dried sage in a ceramic bowl and with a large feather brushing it into all the corners of each room. This also works well. If you wish, you can simply use a saucepan with a wooden spoon to bang in each corner and thereby clear those unwanted energies. Sometimes I do this after I have visitors and I feel that my space was not mine anymore after their visit….it’s an energy feeling…and so I clear the rooms out, and I feel better once again. Easy to do.
Let’s all make an energetic change….even a small one…and lighten our places within….and without….and FEEL our way into the future with EASE!
I wish you well,
