When you think about simplifying your life, what comes to mind? Getting rid of things you really don’t need? Doing less, spending less, downsizing, consolidating? All of these are noteworthy ways to simplify, but they can have a negative undertone if it feels like you have to give something up. Without realizing it, this could be your inner vibration, so let’s look at these endeavors from a positive place.

When we rid ourselves of what we no longer need, we actually open up space for new to enter, not to mention the blessing we bestow on another as they receive those items. Perhaps it’s time for you to step into your real work or give to it more fully rather than so much emphasis and time on trivialities and trying so hard to please others. Could you benefit by saving more and thus be prepared for uncertain times, such as we are experiencing now, rather than stressing over making ends meet or keeping in step with the image you’ve created? And what about time to “just be”, when you quietly tune into your higher self and connect with your source instead of being busy? So rarely do any of us take time to tap into our inner resources and hear what our spirit is telling us.

Changing your focus to the positive perception is freeing and raises your vibration to a higher level, and isn’t that what you really want? Isn’t that the cry being echoed across our great nation – a cry for freedom? Simplicity frees you from the self-imposed “have tos”, “musts”, “shoulds”, rules and restrictions; it’s a place where you are able to use your inborn power of choice. Everything in our life is created by our thoughts and choices, so it’s up to each of us to be conscious of those thoughts and what we are creating. If we don’t like what we are experiencing, then we have to change our thoughts which will then change and our behavior.

The universe is telling us to wake up and the planetary alignments of recent months have perpetuated a major shift that will continue for months to come. We are being told to let go of what isn’t working and create a new paradigm. People like to fell secure and comfortable, so letting go usually doesn’t feel too good. Yet, letting go of things, relationships, old patterns, old beliefs is the only way to open up a space for something new to enter your life. This is what is happening now – time to let go.

So what isn’t working for you right now? Are you experiencing a relationship that doesn’t raise you up and you need to let go of it, but you’re scared to do it? Is it time to step into your purpose for being here in this lifetime, but again, you’re afraid of taking that step? Do you fear the void in your life if you let go of something you’re used to having? Indecision will stop your growth and keep you from the wonderful new life you can now experience!

In the midst of all our chaos shines a bright light that is leading us to a better life and world, one that we now have the opportunity to create. What a glorious adventure! Along with others, I feel we are being guided into a more simplistic, pure life, back to the basics, where our roots are, as we rebuild a strong foundation based on truth and freedom. Simplifying your life is an opportunity to create an extraordinary life!
