Release the Past

dragonflyAs you look around your surroundings, are there things that no longer have the meaning to you they once did? Are there things that you at one time thought you could never part with but now you know it’s meant to be released, on to another?

We are all going through such energetic shifts right now and this only makes sense. We are not the same person we were yesterday and for sure not the same person we were a year ago.


Maybe there are books you have you know you will never read, or clothes you can send off to another who will love them as you once did.


If you have a room or a closet that is too overwhelming to release, ask a friend for help. That’s what I did today. I was the friend.


The friend has a more objective point of view and doesn’t have the attachment that you may to some of the items.


I let go of many things before I headed west. It does give you a sense of relief. It’s because everything is energy. And each item you have, each thing in your house, has an energetic pull on you.


What if you have a storage container with even more things you don’t use. Think of the energetic pull each of these items has on you.


Start small. Maybe start with a drawer. Or maybe start by sorting for 5-10 minutes. But start.


As you release things you no longer use, you will feel lighter and you may notice a transformation happening. Maybe the room looks brighter.


Along with the releasing of the physical things, there is a clearing that automatically happens with you, personally. Drink more water and don’t be surprised if you feel tired, depending on what you have released, even if it is things you really wanted gone. Maybe take extra good care of yourself for the next day or two. 


As one of my mentors has said many times: ‘it’s all good’. 🙂


Angel Blessings to you.

    I have spent the last year decluttering. and letting go of things. In fact yesterday, I walked round our house and felt for the first time, that I did not feel weighed down by possessions or things to do! Just need to do our garage now.. 🙂

    This is the perfect post for my life right now! I am in the process of buying a house and will be moving in February. Now, the house is twice as big as my apartment, so I could just take everything, but I have stuff that I haven’t had a chance to unpack when I sold my last house 6 months ago.

    When I need help downsizing, I call on my daughter. I tell her she should be a professional downsizer and I mean it! She helped with my last move and was constantly saying things like if you don’t know why it has sentimental value anymore, it’s ok to get rid of it and I had one just like that and I was nervous about letting it go, but I felt so much better after it was gone. She is awesome! (I would think that even if she were a pack rat)

      It’s always good to have help I think ;). Good luck on the move!

    A declutter is always a great idea and after I have done it the place feels so much lighter and more inviting!

      Exactly Miss Stacey. I think the air has room to move and dance 😉

    Yes! I too am working on releasing past things that are no longer needed. I’ve done a lot of it over the last few years, and it seems harder now to release things that are still left – I can be quite attached. Little by little! Thanks for the gentle nudge.
