Spring Clean Your Life

649When was the last time you did some spring cleaning?  And I am not just talking about your closets, basement or garage.  I am talking about spring cleaning your life.  There is certainly nothing wrong with taking inventory once or twice a year.  Decide on what is pleasing in and enhancing your life and let go of what isn’t.  In fact, this is a healthy process of staying in tune with your Inner Life because it allows you to keep growing and moving forward in a positive manner. 

When your life becomes nothing more than a routine or in some cases a chore, it is time to do some spring cleaning.  It is very common for people to become complacent with their life and relationships.  You may think that where you are is as good as it gets or as far as you can go but you are further from the truth.  Sometimes all it takes is a little freshening up to get things moving again.  

650The early years start out fresh and airy but before you know it ten years have passed you by and you and your life are stale and stagnant.  To fully understand the significance of spring cleaning, think of how you would feel if you were to wake up tomorrow morning stuck in the mud, unable to move or breathe.  It would not feel very good would it?  Unfortunately, this is what happens to so many people but at a much slower pace.  Some don’t even realize it until they take a good long hard look at their lives. 

651If you are completely happy with your life and relationships, then keep doing what you are doing.  If it works, keep on working it.  But if you are one of millions who suffer from unsatisfying and unhappy lives, why not take the first step in spring cleaning your life. 

Ask yourself how your life feels and then make two separate lists.  One of all the things you are happy with and one with all the things you are not happy with.  This should include the people in your life, your habits, behaviors, career, responsibilities, your home, material possessions, etc.  It is important to be totally honest with yourself especially when it comes to relationships.  Just because someone is a family member, friend or partner doesn’t mean they can’t drag you down.  They may be genuinely good people who you care about but if they encourage, enable, support or add any type of negativity in your life, how can they be enhancing it?  Regardless of who or what, how YOU feel is all that matters. 

646Once your two lists are made, you can start your spring cleaning of the things you don’t need, want or that make you unhappy.  There is no need to tackle the whole list all at once.  Select one thing a week to work on so long as you are doing something to freshen your life back up again.  You’d be surprised at how quickly things will change and how much better you will feel.  Do whatever it takes for you and your life to feel good, to feel breathable, to feel relaxed and peaceful, but most importantly to feel and be truly happy.  The time is always NOW and there is always time for spring cleaning NOW!

If true and lasting happiness is what you seek, seek first from within.  Live, breathe and be your Inner Life.  Quiet your mind, focus solely on the present moment, and allow the power of your Inner Life guide you to where you want to be……

What Has Waiting Done For You

353How much of your life have you spent waiting? I am not talking about outer life waiting such as waiting to graduate, waiting to buy a house, waiting in a line, or in traffic.  I am talking about waiting to fully embrace your Inner Life which will bring you peace, well-being, abundance and true happiness.

Your Inner Life is the core of who you really are, the non-physical part of your true being.  It is the center of all that is and all that will ever be. It is the pure and true “one with” connection to Source.

Your Inner Life is always alive, happy and joyful because it is in and of the present moment.  It knows nothing different.  It never needs to wait to feel good because feeling good is its natural state of being. Which means, feeling good is your natural state of being.

354When you project yourself into the future or anywhere other than where you are Now, it creates inner conflict. This conflict causes you to be out of tune with your Inner Life.  This is the same as being out of balance.  This imbalance will deplete you of positive energy because let’s face it, if you are not happy Now, you are going to emanate negative energy. This negative energy will in fact impact every area of your life ~ body, mind & spirit.

Waiting for anything takes the joy out of where and who you are now. In turn, it takes the joy out of life.  When you are focused on trying to find something or someone to make you feel good, you completely lose sight of the present moment.  

351Waiting is no different from saying I am not happy Now, I want something better.  Why do we wait for something specific before we allow ourselves to be happy?  If you are happy Now, everything you want will come into play and before you know it all good things will be manifesting for you.  You are the creator of your own reality. The better you feel, the happier you will be.  The happier you are, the easier it is to create the life you want because you are then in tune with your Inner Life.

If the present moment is not good enough Now, how do you expect the future to be any better when you carry forward the feelings of “not good enough”?  The present moment is where all of Life is.  It is where your dreams and desires are created and born.  Waiting is where life will crumble and die.  

346If abundance and true happiness is what you desire, you will only find it in the present moment.  You will not find it by waiting for the next best thing to come along.  Waiting will only attract more waiting.

Life is Now.  You are Now.  Be here now and the rest will fall into place.  There is no need to wait for anything or anyone.  Everything you need is inside you.  It is a part of who you are. Your natural state of being is love and happiness so there is nothing to seek out.  All you have to do is get back in tune with who you really are; with your Inner Life.

348Acceptance of, and appreciation for, where you are, who you are, and what you have will put you back in tune.  This in itself will eliminate the need to wait because you will begin to feel and have peace, well-being, abundance and true happiness.  So I ask you this one question ~ what has waiting done for you?
