PEACE!! Clean Up

Take a line from a song that you love or connect with. Turn that line into the title of your post.

I’ve been going through my “stuff” attempting to organize, purge, and welcome in the new.  I do this several times a year. 

I started this practice years ago when I took a course at my spiritual center, church, or whatever you want to call it.  In this course, one of the principles was on the “Law of Circulation.”  It states, “The Law of Circulation works to the benefit of those who understand its operation.  When you create a vacuum in your life, the Universe always moves in to fill it.”

I find this to be true.  When you have too much “stuff” the energy in your house becomes stagnant.  Why? Because, there is no room for any newness to enter.  I can actually feel the stagnant energy when I walk into a cluttered environment.  There’s a heaviness to it.

It’s a good practice to periodically go through your “stuff” and sort out the things that still serve a purpose in your life and the things that don’t.  Holding on to things that no longer serve you stifles the “Law of Circulation.”  If you aren’t using something, you are preventing someone else who might benefit from its use. 

I tend to take my unused “stuff” to a donation center.  But, there are other options.  You can give them away to friends or have a yard sale.

I’ve gotten off track here, so let me refocus.  When I go through my “stuff”, I also sort through my computers and/or devices.  I remove any digital files and/or applications I no longer use  While doing so, I came across a video from 2008.  This video is of me singing the song I mentioned in my Daily Prompt post God Gave Me Skills.  For those of you who have read that post, I thought it would be a nice reference for you to see. 

I laugh when I watch it.  I can see all the mistakes I made.  At one point, my music director moves over to give me a cue that I was ahead of the music.  I have a tendency to do that.  But, as I said in my post, I don’t know music.

I hope you enjoy, and may you all have peace in your lives.  Oh yeah, and clean up.

Namaste Joe

  1. I know what you mean about energy being stagnant. It really does help to get rid of the things you no longer need in your life. I thought you did well. You weren’t really too ahead 🙂

    • Yeah, I’ve downsized tremendously. I once had a six bedroom house and they were all filled with “stuff.” When you go through the process, you gain insight into why you keep some of the things you do. For instance, I used to have bookcases filled with books. I rationalized that I might want to re-read them. But, in actuality, I just liked the way they looked to other people. I felt they made me seem well read. It took me several “dumping sessions” to get them down. Now everything feels more airy, not condensed with books. Also, let me thank you for your kind words on my PEACE rendition. I’ll except them, despite what that self critical voice inside my head likes to say. 😃 Joe
