Create Space for Abundance
Over the summer, I’ve been reducing our ‘things’ and creating more space in our home. One of the last areas to focus on is my office. I spend about 4-5 hours in my office a day. I’m fairly organized so I no longer have piles of stuff to sort through, but the unsorted items still do create areas of clutter. This weekend, I’ve been focusing on my office. First step, remove everything from my desk and dust. Then, only add back what really needs to be on the surface. It’s surprising to be how much stuff I haven’t touched in 6 months to a year. And if I haven’t used it in a year, chances are I will never need it.
Gratitude Tip: By minimizing the amount of things we have, it makes it easier to use and appreciate the things we do have. When we create physical and mental space in our lives, we make room for more abundance and joy.
Sitting down this morning to write this blog post, I feel very light and open. I have lots of room, the desk is clean, my view is stunning and I’m ready for an amazing week. Which areas of your home need to be de-cluttered? Where do you need to clean up and make some space?
There is a lot to be said for the ancient art of Feng Shui and how it can impact our lives. Kate Northrup, author of Money, A Love Story, has a great blog post (and web-based course!) on the art of Feng Shui – she calls it the The Closest Thing To Magic That I Know How To Teach. If you feel stuck, lacking in abundance or joy, and have tried to do things on your own, I highly recommend following Kate’s program. Feng Shui has made a huge difference in my life since I started implementing it years ago. Share your Feng Shui success stories in the comments!
