In the Care of the God Force--Part Two

Look into your closet and chances are that you have more clothes and stuff in there than you can possibly wear. There is a good chance that you wear only a small percentage of your clothes and yet we hang onto much that we never use. Look into your garage and chances are you will see more than just your car sitting there. The chances are greater still that it is full of things that you haven’t used in years.

Everything we own has a part of our energy attached to it. It would stand to reason then that the more you own the more your energy is spread around. The things that are stacked, stuffed, and hanging around in our lives represent parts of us that are stuck, stacked, or just plain hung up somewhere. When you look at things this way, you realize that maybe ignoring those areas of clutter and accumulation is not such a good idea.

In times of collective fear and scarcity, it is especially important to get your energy and yourself moving. One of the best ways to do this is through sharing of your own abundance. When you think about it, one of the main reasons we have extra stuff around that we aren’t using or wearing is because we are afraid that we might need it some day, or that we spent good money on it, or that we’ll get around to it sometime. This type of thinking is at the root of scarcity—the fear that there is not enough to go around.

The good news is that we live in an abundant universe. There are more than enough resources for everyone. The problem, however, is that collectively and individually we hoard our resources out of fear. We have all been raised to some extent with a scarcity mindset. As a result, we tend to shut down the flow of abundance.

Think of abundance as a river. It is sourced at the mountaintop by the melting snow. It flows down the mountain into the valleys and eventually into the ocean. It condenses up into the clouds as rain and snow and is re-deposited onto the mountain as snow, creating a loop that waters and replenishes the earth in an ongoing process.

We are meant to keep moving like the river allowing resources to flow through us out into the world. When you look at your clutter, extra stuff, clothing, or whatever you want to call it that is stuffed, packed away into corners, just lying about, or neatly organized here and there you realize that perhaps you are creating the equivalent of an energetic logjam in your life.

What would happen if you cleared some of that away, passing on your abundance to those who might need it and allow the abundance of the universe to flow through you? There are exciting possibilities in this idea. Sadly, many of us are too fearful to try it or to let go of our stuff, even when we haven’t used it in years. In fact, if we hang on to it long enough, it often turns into mere garbage.

The antidote to a stagnate life is to keep you and your stuff in circulation attuned to the needs of the universe. We can become a collecting pond or a river. The choice is ours. I like the idea of a clear, vibrant river with the energy of Source coursing through my life. What about you? Find someone today who is in need of some of your abundance. You will both become wealthier as a result.
