Are you making room for prosperity?

April 12, 2011

Today’s post comes from Lee Milteer, author of the Untamed Success Newsletter and many wonderful books on success. I love Lee’s gentle but no-BS approach to success and prosperity. I’m grateful to her for letting me share her newsletter content here, so that you can have the benefit of it as well. This post on Making Room for Prosperity struck a chord with me – looks like it’s spring cleaning time! Clutter is a known energy zapper.

One of the first strategies to create prosperity is to get rid of what you don’t want in your life to make room for what you do want. It is said that nature abhors a vacuum. To have the opportunity to attract what you do want, such as a better relationship, more attractive clothes, or furniture, you must make room for your desires to manifest.

No matter what your economic status, there are probably many possessions that you’re not using, which are just cluttering up your life and space. If you want new clothes yet every time you go into your closet you have to pry an outfit out because there are so many clothes jammed into it, you will have no motivation to go out and invest in clothes that make you feel attractive and confident. You must also keep in mind that you only have so much life energy. If you’re using that energy looking at garments you really don’t like, have gone out of style, or that no longer fit, you experience frustration, guilt, and/or other negative feelings. They rob you of time and energy.

If you’re living in fear of lack and tightly holding on to everything — your material possessions, your time, your love, your energy or ideas, you’re shutting yourself off from the flow of life. When you dam up a stream, the water becomes stagnant. When you close off your life, you become stagnant. The more unwanted things clutter your life, the less room there will be for the things you want to be able to appear.

A great universal secret of prosperity is passing along to others those things you no longer need. The more you give away of your material possessions you no longer need, the more love, appreciation, praise, the world will surprise you with by increasing your abundance in all areas of your life.

Pick a different area in your home or office and give yourself permission to go through your material possessions making two piles: one to throw away, the other to either give away or sell; with what you decide to keep you will organize in a manner that makes you feel in control. Get rid of old furniture, toys, office files, magazines, and newspapers. Clear out the junk that robs you of your energy and time whenever you see or think about it. Unclutter your life with the tangibles and intangibles that are no longer adding to your well being. New substances, new relationships, and new opportunities do not flow easily into a cluttered environment.

When you move things, people, or situations that no longer serve you out of your life, you’re clearing the way for what you do want. It’s difficult to know what you do want until you get rid of what you don’t want or what is no longer working.
