As I mentioned in my last post, I have been getting rid of anything that does not please me. Clothes, friends, habits, books - you name it and if it doesn't compliment my compelling vision for "my self" - it is being donated or otherwise kicked to the curb.
Energetically, possessions hold memories. What I was doing when I wore a certain sweater, an inscription on the first page of a book, a vase given to me along with a bouquet of flowers that wilted along with a relationship. All of these send me messages of my past that I no longer want to have in the present.
And I can honestly say that it has been absolutely freeing to get rid of all of these things. I am wealthier without them.
Apparently I am right on trend. A recent article in my Whole Living Magazine advises, "Consider how each possession makes you feel. Don't keep things with negative energy, like gifts from people you had a falling out with, photos from unhappy times or failed relationships, unfinished projects, clothes that are too small, or medicines from an old ailment. Make room for things that have a positive association. And if you have to mull over whether to toss a particular item, you probably don't need it."
