Space. A block of time? A bit of quiet? An open shelf or drawer, an empty plate. How do you fill it?
It's been said, "Nature abhors a vacuum"...and many of us do too. Notice how uncomfortable it is when the conversation dies down or the movie score goes silent?
Even the space between my upper and lower teeth is, too often, closed up, clenched, not allowed to be open, slack. And, now I have a hairline crack in one of my teeth to show that my unconscious, while I'm sleeping, is constricted, not relaxed, holding onto pent-up energy.
How can we open to allow ourselves to grow, expand and step into new realms of Love, Joy, Good, Magic, Prosperity? Into our next phase of Be-Coming?
I believe one step is to Create Space.
Just like we clean our homes before inviting friends over, or do spring cleaning (an ancient practice to welcome in the new being birthed at that time of year) we prepare for the new that is coming in, by relaxing, letting go, clearing space (yes, like in Feng Shui) and releasing old patterns to energetically, emotionally, physically and mentally, roll out the red carpet.
Let's see what shows up by doing our end-of-the-year clearing and releasing.
