Do you set aside intentional time to reflect on the things that aren’t serving you anymore?
In our quest for personal transformation and spiritual alignment, it’s easy to get caught up looking for what’s next. We put our attention towards what we want and where we’re going, and we forget that part of forward progress is cleaning house or “taking out the garbage.”
Think of it this way, if you continued to fill your home with all of the new things you need and want – new groceries, new clothes, new furniture – but you never spent time clearing clutter and throwing out the old, you would be living in a state of disaster!
The same is actually true for our inner worlds. If we don’t clear out the clutter, we don’t have space leftover for growth, expansion, joy, and a deeper connection to Spirit.
You wouldn’t let the garbage pile up in your house – so why would you allow it to pile up in your heart and mind?
Often we fail to recognize that we’ve become bogged down with negativity, challenges, or toxic environments. We don’t even notice when a feeling state that doesn’t serve us anymore has accumulated, and we haven’t taken the time to address it and release it.
As a result, we begin to feel like we’re losing our optimism, our hope for life, and our unwavering faith. But this isn’t a true reflection of our inner selves – it’s simply extra, unsable content we need to consciously let go of to make space for more of what we want. You need to release what no longer serves you.
The first step in releasing is gaining clarity on what you’re making space for.
Ultimately, releasing allows you space for greater expansion. It opens up room in your field for more of the experiences you want to have and feelings you want to feel. It allows you to trust the Universe.
It’s so important to release so we can return to trust.
When we’re overburdened by things that aren’t ours or things we can’t control, it’s nearly impossible to feel our trust in the Universe. When we clean house by releasing, we open up space for our relationship with the Divine.
We feel more in flow and we suddenly start seeing opportunities and solutions, simply because we have the spaciousness for them to come in. We stop looking at what isn’t working and shift our mindset to what’s possible.
Sometimes the best way to let go of the things that aren’t serving us anymore is to set aside intentional time for a simple ritual.
The Full Moon is a time of illumination, culmination, and release. In other words, a perfect time to get clarity on what you need to let go of and do a releasing ritual.
This week, there’s a Full Moon in Aquarius on August 11th, 2022. Why not schedule a little time to do a simple ritual and help clear some space for more trust and expansion? If you’re reading this after the Full Moon, simply look up the next one and mark your calendar so you can take advantage of this supportive lunar energy.
Once you’ve done the work to release and let go of the things that are no longer serving you, it’s time to turn your attention to what’s possible!
One of the beautiful things about doing the work of letting go is that it allows you to take your attention away from what isn’t working and look toward the vast potential ahead of you.
