I spent some time with a beautiful friend today. She tells me that she is beginning to move her world faster than she has been able to in the past. She says that she decided to begin eliminating things that she does not need in her life. ‘Things’ meaning distractions and obstacles that get in the way of her connection with her spirit and God. Going out with friends and drinking, processed foods (the majority of them anyway), and emotions that hold her back (I put this one in because she did not overtly state it, but this is what a large part of the conversation involved). This ‘spring cleaning’ of one’s lie is something we all need to do with regularity. It seems that we often allow things to accumulate in our lives that, although help us feel secure, nevertheless get in the way and prevent us from moving forward in life. Forward toward our goal of connecting with spirit, with God. Clearing out these ‘anchors’ frees up a lot of our energy to flow better into the present activities and allows clarity and connection with the present and hence, to God. My friend says she has noticed faster changes in her life and improvements toward her goals since she started clearing the clutter. Most of all, she found that after she cleared the clutter, the space was filled immediately with more meaningful events that were in direct alignment with her priorities in life. I am profoundly happy with her decision and her results. Connecting with life and living in the moment has proven greatly enlightening for her. I take this to heart as I have done the very same thing in several areas of my own life (which I have blogged about a few times). Bring your spirit in to now. Enact change at the speed of life. Is that not what it is all about?
