When we empty out that which is taking up space in our lives (internally and in our environment) we remove the block to having that which is new.
It is in clearing, that we take stock of that which no longer becomes us and no longer serves us. Clearing can take on the form of physically throwing something away, and it can be mental housekeeping in which old thoughts and beliefs are discarded.
That which is new may enter like a quiet visitor or a beautifully wrapped package with layers to unpack before the gift is seen. It can also come in like a quiet storm or explosion turning one’s world upside-down. Therefore, I would suggest that you pray before you begin to clean and clear things out. Pray as a step of preparation. Pray for the readiness to handle what comes in, and for protection. Be mindful: as you put things out, bless them, and be grateful that you had them. As you make room, bless the space in your home and being – Maybe that will ease the touch.
To empty out can be worth every minute of it. New, what is next? Is it mastery? Let Go and Empty Out.
