The holiday spirit is a powerful source of energy. This year, keep the spirit alive longer by doing, ditching, or delegating while you’re decorating.
Tomorrow Never Comes
Your physical environment is a reflection of your unconscious thinking. If you’re surrounded by clutter, outdated pictures, and nick-knacks that you don’t like, the reflection back to you is undecided, disconnected, and disempowered. Mired down by an energy draining physical environment, it’s hard to enjoy all the opportunities that may come your way. Think back this year, ever walk by a room or a closet and think, “Wow, this is gonna take a really long time to clean up,” then walk away vowing to get to it later? How about thinking, “I have no idea where to even start,” then walk away vowing to figure it out tomorrow? Later and tomorrow never happen; the time is always now and the day is always today so the clutter remains.
As we slip into December and start decorating for the holidays, you have the perfect opportunity to start updating a few energy draining spaces in your home. As you rearrange things to make room for holiday decorations, take a good look at everything you touch. Ask yourself if it fits with your life today. It might need an update or it might need a new home entirely.
Do – Ditch – Delegate: Pictures
Take a good look at the pictures in all those picture frames; do they need an update? Before stashing it during the holidays:
Do: Replace the picture
Ditch: Toss the picture—and frame, too, if it’s bad.
Delegate: Wrap it up and give it to someone who might appreciate it more.
This applies to chachkas, too. The point is that your physical environment can’t feed you energy if it’s cluttered or filled with outdated and disempowering things.
It’ll Keep on Giving
The holiday spirit is a powerful source of energy waiting to be used. Traditionally, we channel it toward gift giving, meal planning, and entertaining not thinking to tap into it to help create happier energy around us the other 11 months of the year. So this year, keep the spirit alive longer by doing, ditching, or delegating while you’re decorating.
