Spring is officially here and this is the perfect time to clear out the old and make way for the new. This is a great time of year to go through your stuff to identify what you can let go of, as the urge to Spring clean takes hold. This year, as you go into Spring cleaning mode, bring a different awareness to it and you will accomplish even more.

Consider that everything you have in your environment – all your possessions – has energy. It is alive with energy and it is also alive with your memories and associations. We don’t usually look at things that way, we usually see them as, well, just things. Inanimate objects that we either like or dislike, use or not use.

When you realize that things actually have energy and that they are connected to you, it also becomes clear how, the more things you have, the more they can weigh you down. I was watching one of the television programs on hoarders recently, and although these are very extreme examples of how things take over people’s lives, the principle is still the same whether your house is full like theirs or not so full.

The more you have the more it holds you back. Energetically it keeps you stuck. You stop not only new things but new experiences from coming in your life – perhaps the very experiences you long for, or the resources you need and want. If you want to create any kind of change in your life the best way to start is to let go of things you no longer need, use or want.

Consider also that your possessions are alive with your memories and associations. Everything has a story. The question is, how does that story support you? How does it affect you? If you have something that reminds you of a difficult time in your life, a time of struggle, then energetically you are keeping the memory of that experience alive by keeping the object. If you have something that reminds you of someone who treated you badly, it’s just the same as having the energy of that person in your home with you.

Why would you want to keep things that do not hold positive memories for you? Why would you want to keep things that you don’t need or use? Why would you want to keep things that you don’t like? All of these things will affect your energy. All of these things will keep you stuck. So this year, as you contemplate Spring cleaning, keep this in mind. As you let go of things, realize that you are letting go of old energy. Realize that you are gaining your energy back and realize that you are making way for new, more positive people and experiences to come into your life.

You will feel refreshed and renewed. Your vitality will be restored if you keep this questions in mind as you sort through your things:

Do I love it?
Do I need it?
Do I use it?
Does it bring me joy?
Does it have positive memories and associations for me?

Now doesn’t that just make you want to go and find things to release from your space? Well don’t let me stop you – go and get started right now!
