Week 22 – Aligning
There is nothing like MOVING to remind me of how much STUFF I have. And my home looks nothing like this image but it certainly FEELS like it!! I did a deep-clean out “spark joy” exactly 12 months ago when we moved from our previous home of 5 years to this one when the home went up for sale. I regularly donate BAGS of items to the thrifts stores on island and I very rarely SHOP. I LOVE getting rid of things. My mother-in-law who worked at a thrift store until recently, kept items flowing into our household, mostly for her granddaughter. And as rarely as I do think I shop, I acquire like anyone else.
I read a disturbing article recently about how much time we spend shopping during a lifetime. All of this reflection and my subconscious SCREAMING to minimize my life is but yet another reflection of the master keys.
What is my purpose? What do I want? What do I want to feel like when I step into my new home? How can I organize my mind and papers and projects so that there isn’t constantly something to PICK UP. Is it even possible as a work from home, homeschooling mom of a 6 year old?
It must be. I’ve gotta find a way. I live by the “compass” of my dharma and purpose not by precedent. I am not locked into old habits. I can create exactly what I desire. I have the master key. Perhaps I need a mentor like this woman who speaks to creating your ideal around what is important and resonates with you, as a unique individual.
All I need to do is SIT. Take the master key challenge of being completely SILENT for a period of time and reflect. The answers will reveal themselves to me.
