THE IMPORTANCE OF CREATING SPACE
In our homes, what do we do with an empty space? We fill it up, right? Whether it's a counter top, a drawer, or a shelf, the natural response is to put something on it or in it. Just allowing it to be blank is counter intuitive. I'd go as far as to say it may make us uncomfortable as if the very absence of things is deficient or inadequate. We might even feel exposed.
Let's ponder this for a moment. In the great outdoors, how do we feel when we overlook an unencumbered expanse, say an ocean or a mountain range. We pause, don't we? It lures us to be still and quiet. The nothingness allows the eye to travel and the mind to settle. Blank and open space gives us a chance to breathe. It grants us consent to be. It gives us permission for that silent, empty space we all know as thought.
An ah-ha moment for workshop participants is the understanding that clutter is blocked energy, It's like a dam or a barrier denying you, limiting you and holding you back.
A life coach, Talane Miedaner says, "Decluttering is probably the fastest and easiest way to attract something new in your life. Throw out things you no longer need and that no longer apply to your life. Let go of the old. Once you create the space, the universe will try to fill it. One of the easiest and most effective ways to effortlessly attract something new into your life is to create some empty space."
That, my friends in powerful advice.
THE LAW OF ATTRACTION AND RESONATING GRATITUDE
So you created the space and now you are aware something will fill it.
It is your job to think about what you want to be, do, and have. Every thought is a force. Its a magnetic signal drawing the parallel back to you. Thoughts have a frequency, and they attract all like things that are on the same frequency. So goes the saying, "Like attracts like." Known as quantum physics, this law of attraction is in play whether you think positive thoughts or negative thoughts. So beware. Focus on the vision you hold for yourself as we're clearing the way by purging your belongings and organizing your home. Summon it. Be persistent.
The second part of the power of the mind and your predominate thoughts is to be thankful. Gratitude is absolutely the way to bring more into your life. Be grateful for what you already have, and you will attract more good things.
"Whatever you think about and thank about you bring about." Dr. John Demartini
"Our thoughts are most important. All that we are is the result of what we have thought." Gautama Siddhartha
WISDOM OF AN ORGANIZED HOME
What is it to be wise? My research revealed wisdom is a disposition to find the truth coupled with an optimum judgment as to what actions should be taken. In other words, what absolutely is the best way, the best option, the best choice. To be wise is to embody the principle of reason. It requires control of one's emotional reactions and passions.
To summarize the philosophy of Order & Space, you now have 1) knowledge you can create your life by clearing your clutter and opening space. 2) an understanding your thoughts will become your reality and a daily habit of gratitude will attract your dreams, and 3) organizing your home and making a plan to completely remove extraneous items is a wise choice to free yourself and breakthrough to a balanced life of deep meaning and satisfaction.
