Lately I’ve been feeling the need to make space in my life. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not one to hold on to too many material things. If you ask my boyfriend he’d tell you that more often than not I just up and give something away because I no longer need it, or rather, it no longer serves me. I’ll never be a hoarder–I absolutely can’t stand clutter and when push comes to shove, I believe that if I haven’t needed it so far, then I probably won’t need it any time soon.
That being said, there are other “things” (e.g relationships, commitments) in my life that I find harder to release. Keeping true to my capricious Capricorn nature, I tend to brood over these situations much longer than anyone could possibly stand. I’m an over-processing, self-analyzing mess at times, but in the end this trait always serves me well. While outsiders might see me as flighty and whimsical, I’m actually quite practical and tend to take a long time to make, what I consider to be, big decisions.
I recently made the decision to release a commitment of mine. Over the past few months, I have been feeling a pull in another direction. At first I wasn’t quite sure why I was feeling this way and I kept chalking up my emotions to lots of trivial things, but as I continued to really look at the situation, I began to gain more clarity and realized that it just wasn’t working any longer. Then I was faced with the turmoil of “I don’t have anything else to replace it with, what will I do?” feelings. After more introspection, I came to the conclusion that if what I am seeking in life is abundance and change, then I need to make space for change to come to me.
Let it be known that I did not come to this conclusion on my own…thank you to all my wonderful friends that listened to me A LOT over the past few months as I worked to process through this situation!
It’s that simple. The Universe is always ready and waiting to shower us with gifts, but if our plates are too full, how will we ever receive them? Now, I’m not saying to go out and wipe your schedules clean and give up all the things you love to do. In fact, its quite the opposite! In order for the gifts to appear you need to give up the things that no longer serve you. To put it even more simply, if you’re not feeling it…LET IT GO!
2011 is the year of 4 (2+0+1+1=4) and four is the number of the heart center, making it a time to tap into your spiritual practice and really listen to your inner Guru. Observe…and if you find you don’t love it (whatever “it” is) let it go and make space for all of the magnificent gifts waiting to come to you.
The Universe is just itching to give you more than you could ever dream of. Do you have space in your life for all that is coming?
