Wow, has this week flown by! My ambitious plans to purge and organize, were cut short by indecision. I always do this to myself. My plans are too big for my energy and time; kinda like going food shopping on an empty stomach. Not a good thing to do.
Purging and organizing for the new year is a great idea, but you have to take it in small steps. I know this. But I also know how emotional getting rid of things can be. It’s been revealed that the three most emotionally stressful times in our lives is a family death, a divorce and a move. Well I’ve been through 2 of these already and this year I’m anticipating a difficult move.
My rule has always been that “if I haven’t used the thing in 2 years, then it gets tossed”. I’ve been teaching my sons this same rule and I hope it sticks. Hoarding runs in the family. My saving grace is that I’m really organized, so everything has it’s place and if there isn’t a place it gets tossed.
But it’s really amazing how stuff accumulates. I didn’t even buy anything this year. Honestly!
So I’ve just decided to give myself a break today and focus on the future. And I want to share 2 things that struck a cord with me this week.
I’m a very open minded person and believe in anything that helps motivate you. And I’ve been getting Notes from the Universe for a couple of years now, thanks to my friend Patty. The notes I get every morning don’t always resonate with me, but when they do, it shifts my whole perspective on how my day will go.
So I want to share today’s Notes – I’m sure Mike Dooley won’t mind.
…, soon the new year starts, so now’s a great time to:
1. Wipe the slate clean.
2. Focus upon what you really want.
3. Chart your course.
Well… only if you want to risk having to repeat these steps for the same wishes next year! Maybe this is splitting hairs, but here’s an adventurous alternative:
1. Give thanks that life is… just as it is (and that it’s been… just as it’s been). Because of it, you’re now “READY.”
2. Define what you want in terms of the end result. Don’t worry about the hows, or even the course. KNOW that what you want is ALREADY yours in spirit, by divine LAW, just focus on the certainty of this ownership, understand it, claim it, and “it will be on earth, as it is in heaven (spirit).”
3. LET THE UNIVERSE show you the way via your impulses and instincts that appear as you take inspired action. Don’t worry that your first steps seem silly or futile. And if you don’t know what to do, do anything! Go! Get busy! Do not insist on intermediary successes, only upon the end result.
2011 is going to be your year (it already is),
If you do one thing for yourself today, sign up to receive your own Note everyday.
Also, I was sent a TED video from a friend on Facebook. I’ve watched it 4 times this week. This video helped me refocus my attention on what I know to be true. Amazing and provocative. Watch it here.
Next year will be an exciting one for sure and there will be new things happening on FLOHAUS, So stay tuned.
I hope all your wishes come true and you reach your Nirvana!
