Get Clear, Baby
I woke up feeling really heavy, like all of the good energy had been sucked out of my body. I had finished unpacking all of the boxes in my office, my desk was fairly organized, but I was completely unmotivated. It dragged on for several days, maybe more than a week. And then one day, I returned from a walk, enjoying the beautiful Colorado weather and I noticed that as soon as I walked into my office, all of the wonderful energy I was feeling from my brisk morning exercise completely disappeared.
I knew immediately what it was.
Years and years of someone else’s energy was hanging around in my office! I ran to the garage, returned to my office with 6 giant boxes that I filled with all of the books that did not belong to me. It took my husband & I several hours of lifting, pushing, grunting and sweating to get them all out of there. But now my office feels amaaaazing! You can see by the picture (above) that I had to add photos & candles to my own book collection to arrange the shelves. There is still a lot of empty space in here and that’s the point!
I created space: space for new ideas, new projects and amazing new opportunities to be born. I created space to sit on my couch and wonder and dream and journal and take naps. Today I woke up at 5am and just came down here with my steaming cup of café mocha and sat on my couch and watched the sunrise over the snow-capped mountains. (a perfect moment!)
- Look around your work space. Does it fill you with creative energy? Or drag you down in the dungeon?
- What can you remove from your space right now that you don’t love? Is there a pile of papers that need to be filed? Did someone else leave their stuff all around your Empire headquarters? (my daughters leave their shoes & socks in my office and I tell them “If you want to visit my Empire you must be respectful of the energy I’ve created in here. No fighting. No leaving your stuff around.”) I even had to kick my husband out one day when he was stressed out about something. I don’t want that energy sticking to my office!
- Light a candle and walk all around your work space. Move the energy around. Clear out the old & make room for the new. Set the intention that your work space be filled with brilliant ideas, clarity & lots of abundance! (always, as my friend & publisher, Marc Allen says; in an “easy & relaxed manner, in a healthy & positive way for the greater good of all”)
Go do great things! And don’t forget to Live Fabulous Now, baby!
