We sold our house. Our home is currently in total chaos as we dismantle our things on the walls, in cupboards, on the floor and in the yard. Boxes are being moved out as I write. It’s an interesting feeling. It’s a cross between a push-me-pull-you and a “whew.” I have many many wonderful loving memories in this home with family, raising my kids, parties. There’ve also been challenges, stress and angst. I find it fascinating to think of those emotions lingering in the ethers.
As I sort through decades of memories in boxes, old letters, photographs and momentos, I’m reminded of a very rich and colorful adventure. As I sort and sift I am letting go of things I no longer need. I want to make room for new things, new adventures, happy stories. I took the time to reread boxes of birthday cards for my fortieth birthday, reminiscing about the amazing surprise party I was given. I looked through pictures of friends, many who are no longer on this plane. I was in gratitude to all these amazing people who have colored my life with goodness.
I feel we hold onto so much of the past. Past programming, past hurts, past traumas, old old tales buried within ourselves. The more we clear out the clutter, let go of things that no longer serve, the freer we are to move forward. It clears space for new arrivals, opportunities, friends, adventures. It offers an opportunity to awaken to a greater aspect of who we are.
It’s springtime. Perfect time for cleaning. I invite you to let go of the emotions, behaviors, ~stuff~ you no longer need. Share things with others, donate and giveaway. It’s very liberating.
Cosmic sunshine to you.
