A note from firstname.lastname@example.org for Thursday September 24, 2009
Good day there all and welcome to this very fine Thursday.
OK, I'll fess up. I'm a shirt hound! I have grossly more shirts than I'll ever need. To give you a clue, I could wear a fresh shirt every single day, and only do laundry twice a year. It's pretty obsessive, and today I'm doing something about it. Today, at least 50% of my shirts are being donated to a local mission.
Why, you may ask, am I suddenly ready to take this giant step. Well, it's pretty simple. Our friend and valued contributor, Thea Westra reminded me about...

The scarcity (Scare City) conversation going on in your head causes you to hang onto those old clothes in the wardrobe or the three outdated cameras that collect dust in the cupboard. Perhaps you do not yet see that connection however, trust me, they are directly linked.
It is now time to make a little more room to allow for all those wonderful things that you desire.
Get a bigger bookshelf if you want new books, or purge some of those old titles that no longer fit with your new abundance mindset. Weed that garden, you know that every time you drive the car into the drive it drops your energy to see those weeds taking over. Pay your bills on time, every time, and each time you do this, give thanks that you can live a lifestyle that incurs such expenses. Empty those rubbish bins around the house regularly and…yes…have a bin in every room then empty them regularly. Go ahead, unclutter your world…it's wonderful for the Feng Shui (a scientific discipline based on the analysis of energy)!
How can anything great come into your physical, spiritual or mind space when you keep filling the spaces with all those unnecessary extras? Including, worry, drama, procrastination, physical clutter and negative conversation.
Where else can you make some room for the "good things" about which you dream? Take a look around, make a list and work your way through it. Set a timer each day for ten minutes if it helps. Pick a sock drawer or a cupboard shelf to "attack" in those ten minutes. Make that phone call or write that email that you've been putting off. Really feel that feeling of having it done and look forward to that reward.
I have two very handy tools at my website that give you plenty of areas on which to go to work to raise the energy that you transmit.
One of these is the CleanSweep and the other is a list of Tolerations. Download these for free from ForwardSteps.com.au and get into action. (Hint: they are under the heading 'Coaching Tools')
When you even get three-quarters of the way through one of those lists, you'll be ready to create again. You'll be like a drainpipe that has just been unblocked. Things will start flowing toward you and through you once more. That dark little rain cloud that used to follow you overhead each day will magically disappear. Goodness, you might even notice all those opportunities for advancement that have been whizzing by you each day!
That little extra bounce in your step and that lovely clear, clean feeling of everything being right in your world cannot help but attract people and the energy of the universe's power toward you and you'll be ready to give again. You may even have a little breakthrough in self-worth and we all know its immense value in manifestation of success and abundance!
"The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into our mind, but how to get the old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it." ~Dee Hock~
