When you are about to start a new season of the year, it is important to take the opportunity to do a big clear out. I am not only referring to a physical one where you go through your belongings and throw away the things that do not serve you anymore. I am talking about taking a holistic approach – physical, emotional and also energetic.
Everything in life is energy, whether it is people, things, thoughts, etc. – and all of them can be serving you or working against you. If you want for something new and positive to flourish, you have got to clear something out in your current space to make room. Ladies, are you following me here?
“Letting go of what’s no longer is serving you,” may sound like a cliché from an Instagram quote post from 2012, but it cannot be more accurate in this context. Most of us are continuously evolving, and time never stands still. It is normal that some things run their course; relationships end, things break, memories fade and so on. This is a really good thing, because how else would we be able to fit in the next chapter to be written in our life? I am not saying that disposable is something to strive for, but it is certainly not something to fear if life is pushing you toward a new direction. It is also okay, and even a good thing, to push yourself toward something new too.
This can be any forms of relationships: partners, friends, family or anyone who is blocking your path by not being a positive influence. It is alright to let go of these people. You are not a bad person, and it is fully normal to accept that relationships come to an end. Sometimes, of course, it can be difficult to do so, especially if you are very emotionally involved with someone (often men fall into this category). You know this person is not ideal for you, but you hang on to it because you are too afraid of being alone or the unknown. We hang on to so many bad choices in our lives for this simple reason: we prefer the safe and familiar option, rather than taking a risk and gambling that there could be better (and I assure you, ladies, that there is so much possibility in our universe!).
With relationships in general, it is important to remember that few people in our lives are supposed to be with us from the beginning to the very end. Relationships can be outgrown as people change, and it is important not to cling to them too much because that is when it becomes destructive. Everyone is walking their own path, and our paths will not always be in line with each other. This can be a hard thing to accept at times, but we must…life goes on.
Some people really struggle to de-clutter things, while this is a really easy task for others. The latter has a more prominent advantage in life; fewer attachments and no heavy load that is only holding them back. Ladies, I promise you that you will feel better when you exist in a clutter-free environment. You have less of emotional inner chaos, you feel lighter and have clearer thinking. It is incredible what power things can hold over us!
But if you go back to my previous statement; physical things are energy, just as our thoughts. For that reason one can penetrate the other. Our minds get easily affected by the energy of things, so that is the reason why you should keep it simple in your physical and mental space.
If you want to start fresh and write a new chapter for yourself, you will find it easier doing so if you clear out any old memories that are no longer benefiting your life. I encourage you to regularly clear out your space at home. It will do you so much good and give you that symbolic energy release that puts you on the right vibration for your new path. I have a clear out at least twice a year, and every time it makes me feel amazing after! In fact, just thinking of it now makes me want to go through my drawers and pass on the things I never use!
De-cluttering your mind is the most important one, but it is also the hardest. We often feel like we have no control over our thoughts, and if we take some form of control, it only lasts us a few minutes to return to old patterns. On top of that, a majority of us have so many parasites living for free in our minds without paying rent or contributing to anything good. It can be negative thinking, obsessive thoughts, useless analysis, overthinking and so on…but how to get rid of all these unhelpful thoughts? The cleanse for the mind is free, and we are all capable of it: awareness. Being present and being aware of your thoughts is the starting point of cleaning out what does not serve you well.
Therefore, meditation, mindfulness, law of attraction and other practices are great when you need to take control of the space in your head. Therapy can help you resolve all the subconscious mess, but in the end it is about your ability to plant better and more nurturing thoughts to your mind.
Your mind is where everything starts: it is the creator and the operator. Without it, no dreams and goals can come true. Outdated beliefs or negative thinking will only be in your way and cripple you. Do no self-sabotage. Self-nurture instead.
So let go of things, of people, of memories, of anything that is holding you back right now. Release the old and make space for new and wonderful things to enter your life. You may not know what is out there for you yet, but you will find it. Your mission right now is to cleanse, detox yourself and start fresh.
The year is already well underway, but it is never too late to make room for more and better. It is the year where everything can happen, and everything WILL happen if you become that lady who is serious about being on a mission of making her dreams come true. Be that lady who has had enough and has chosen to do something about her life. Be that lady who finally takes action instead of only talking about it. Be the person who wants to be in a different place in one year.
But it is all up to you ladies: how much you want it and how much you do about it. Therefore, let 2021 be the year where you are proactive and productive. Ladies, take charge of your own life.
