The other day I heard a quote, "You cannot receive anything if your hands are full" and man does that resonate with me.
When we practice self-care, which is a practice of self-love, we become self-aware of when our hands are so full we cannot possibly take anything else on. When our hands are full this is when we dig into our toolbox to find ways of letting go of the things that no longer serve us. When we let go we can create open space to either give us room to flow and move or create open space to allow something new and exciting into our lives.
I like to call creating this open space "Energetic Clearing". This energetic clearing can be done in the physical sense or mental/emotional sense.
Here are some ways to "energetically clear":
Physical Energetic Clearing:
Clean out your closet or cabinets in your house.
Clean out your car.
Clean out your purse or wallet.
Mental/Emotional Energetic Clearing:
Meditate to slow down your mind and body so you "hear' what to release.
Create boundaries and start saying "No." to people, places, and things.
Stop making or limit plans with toxic family and friends.
Abundance in life doesn't come from adding more to your life, it first comes from letting go of what is no longer serving you. If you want that full life filled with all the things then first you have to let go to create the space to bring those things in.
I hope this helps you on your journey to "A Healthy and Happy You".
Until next time,
