Outside my window is our tree trimmer doing his thing in cleaning out the branches to accommodate the massive growth of greenery that happens now and for the next couple of months. I can literally feel the flow of energy open up as he is cutting and thinning out all the unwanted branches.
It reminds me of all of the unwanted excess “stuff” that I hold onto that blocks the flow of energy in my life and that Springtime is a great time to remind us all of the importance of letting go of both physical and emotional “stuff” that impedes our flow of energy in all areas or our life. And just like when my tree guy who cleans up the dead overgrowth in order to make room for a massive growth spurt of new leaves and branches, we too need to get ride of all of our physical and emotional dead overgrowth in order to make room for some real massive growth in our own lives.
Every six months, my neighbors would see me cleaning out the garage to the point where they worried that I was preparing to leave the area and move on to another home. I would let go of “stuff” that was clogging up my life and instead of keeping it “in case I may need it in the future”, I released it now so I could make room for something that benefited me now. If the items were broken or unrepairable, then in the trash they went. As most of the items were in good condition, I’d find a new home for them or give them to a charitable organization that found a great home for the items and someone else would benefit from my old “stuff”. By keeping my energy flowing in my life, it opens up more and more new opportunities that I believe would never had happened if it wasn’t for my continual Spring cleaning habit.
I usually suggest to take an area of your life or in your house or office and give it a good thinning out of “unwanted dead growth”. And you know what I mean when I say “unwanted dead growth”. It can be something physical like that pile of unread, unused and out of date magazine subscriptions that block the doorway into your office. Or the “unwanted dead growth” that you’ve been holding on to in the form of un-empowering, limited belief systems. It’s not by accident that the acronym for belief systems is BS, because that’s just what it is, bull sh*t that we have created within ourselves and it’s holding us back to have, be and do the things that we really want in our life.
So Springtime is more than just cleaning the garage or trimming the trees, it’s about taking out the old emotional trash that’s clogging up your inner flow so you can attract and experience the new massive growth spurt that brings you another piece of your dreams right now!
