Bob (lovely husband) and I totally felt the blessings of abundance last week with family visiting us from all over the country--and my arms full of these two gifts--grandbabies: Jude and Harper! They’re lucky they still have those toes, fingers and cheeks--so tempting to just eat them up! Last week there was definitely riches in family, food and fun departments.
And now they’re gone and tucked back into their lives but the glow remains--I miss them SO MUCH when they leave!
And sometimes there’s a point where abundance tips…
It’s where A BEAUTIFUL OPPORTUNITY lies...where too much (fill in the blank) in your home (or life) suddenly shifts from feeling really amazing and joyful to energy draining, soul sucking, and just plain TOO MUCH!
It’s the place where we tend to cover our eyes and ears and sing, “La, la, la” to avoid noticing. Many of us use avoidance techniques to keep from addressing the places in our homes (and our lives) that feel burdensome.
Avoidance keeps us from ever having to really see what’s going on. It keeps us from facing the places that feel stuck and the blocks that led to the stuckness in the first place.
One client of mine PAID her husband to do the laundry so she would never have to go down the basement! Creative avoidance, don’t you think?
What if you took just a little peek at what you’ve been avoiding? What if you only spent a few minutes this week saying “hello” to it? Could things start to shift for you?
We do EVERYTHING because we think it’s going to make us feel better--what we choose to eat, drink, who we spend time with--and whether it’s hanging on, or accumulating, or shopping (A-hem, Black Friday, anyone?) it’s always done in an attempt to feel better. Can you relate?
If you’ve been following me for awhile, you may be feeling a little nudge toward this big idea that you could feel better by letting go.
Does your stuff affect your health? Your relationships or your wealth? Are you able to get your passions out into the world? And be the glowing, shining, diamond essence version of yourself?
Keep only the things you really, really love. Or, the things you need.
And let go of the things that drag you down and keep you feeling sick and stuck.
Check in with your own personal energy--ONLY KEEP that which lifts you up and fills you with joy.

Lots of love,
