I’m new to blogging, although I’ve been a professional writer for a number of years. What I’m loving about the “Discipline of the Blog” is that there is a very Zen-like quality to writing regularly. Before starting my blog, I read several short books on how to do it effectively and I found that, pretty much without exception, the guidance from the most successful bloggers is this: stay focused on some particular topic.
Since I’m teaching energy healing, these days, I decided to focus my blog on energy in all of its aspects. Now I will admit that since energy is the basis for all of what we call “reality” here in the time-space continuum, that’s a pretty broad topic. However, I’m enjoying the thought processes that go into reframing many of my daily activities as a way of explaining energy and vibration for the blog. And, those of you who blog regularly can relate to what I’m starting to discover – the blog needs care and feeding (ooooh, another blog topic related to energy!).
So anyway, after returning from a fabulous weekend trip with Peter I started unpacking, and decided to get rid of some clothes in my closet that I haven’t worn in awhile. I bought a new outfit while I was away and realized that I literally had no more room in my closet for it. The decision to work on the closet has been percolating for a few weeks with spring coming and the fact that I was having trouble finding things in there – I noticed this when I was packing to leave for the aforementioned trip! So it’s time…
Have you noticed how good it feels to clean out old stuff that you’ve been hanging onto? To decide to let it go and in so doing, make room for new things to come into your life? That old jacket that I haven’t worn in years could be the vintage piece of clothing that a college student loves. Or I can gift it to an organization that provides business clothes to single moms for job interviews. It a great jacket, it’s just that my tastes have changed over the years and I don’t wear it anymore
Energy is all about movement. When my closet is too full, things in there become stagnant, wrinkled, hidden. By making space and releasing the old that no longer serves me, I can create the space for the new to come to me.
I once heard someone say that the Universe abhors a vacuum. I’ve always loved that phrase. By creating the vacuum of an empty closet (or at least a less full closet), I invite the vibration of the new into my life and the energy moves…Whether it’s clothes, beliefs, relationships, or anything else that has been hanging around too long, I invite you to make space for the Universe to fill it. I think you’ll be glad you did.
