Abundance Tip : Nature Abhors A Vacuum

I've been collecting and experimenting with abundance and prosperity tips over the years.  I had at one point intended to write a book on the topic, but my guidance has been just to share the information.  Here is tip #1.

Declutter, declutter, declutter. Release, release, release. Donate, donate, donate. As a society, we accumulate so much stuff. When you are working on attracting things into your life, you must get rid of the stuff that you no longer use. If you haven’t worn it in 1 year, haven’t used it in a year, don’t plan to re-read it, gift it, donate it, recycle it, but get it out of your space. I promise you, you will not miss it.

Esther Hicks, channeling Abraham, shared a decluttering technique that I just love. I have improvised a bit because I hang on to things for sentimental reasons, even things I don’t necessarily want. The plan is to declutter and release one room in your house per day. Into each room, you bring 3 boxes. One box is for things to donate or sell at a garage sale. Another box is for things you are keeping for sentimental reasons. The third box is for those items that you have not used or enjoyed for greater than a year, but are not yet ready to release.

 Look at every item in the room. If it is something you use or enjoy frequently, it stays. Otherwise, it goes in one of the three boxes. Do this for each room. Things for donation or garage sale are self explanatory. However, it means either take the things to Salvation Army, Goodwill or other second hand store within two days, or plan your garage sale for no later than the next weekend. Do not store these items. The box of sentimental items can be marked and stored somewhere safe. The box of not yet ready to release items is inventoried (a list of the contents is made) closed, marked and dated. In one year, if you find you have not opened the box to use anything, it then becomes a donation/garage sale box. Release and let go of those items you no longer are enjoying. Allow someone else the pleasure of enjoying the items.
