A home is not just a place where you live and store your possessions. Whether you realize it or not, it is also the place where you anchor your energy and rest your consciousness. When things are disorganized, there is a corresponding scrambling of consciousness too.
Choosing a new home with awareness involves finding land energies, a location, and a house design that is compatible with who will be living in it, and what each person wants to do in their life at that time. What may be very good for one person will not work at all for another, and what may be good at one time in a person’s life may not work as well in the next phase. There is way more to house hunting than just looking for “good feng shui”.
Having made the choice of property, the next step is landing there. On an energetic level, space clearing is the most effective way to do this, but before this comes the practical task of unpacking boxes and organizing the space. This requires deciding as quickly as possible where all your things belong, and letting go of anything you no longer need, use, or have room for.
With each item that is pulled out of a box, there is a self-interrogation process to go through:
1) Do I still need or want this?
2) Will I actually use it?
3) Do I have room for it?
And if you get a YES to all three questions, then:
4) Where is the best place to keep it?
Of course it’s best to do as much of this as possible before you move home so that you don’t have to haul it all to the new location, only to have the extra work and expense of getting rid of it when you get there.
Deciding the destiny of each item you unpack is closely aligned with the process of fine-tuning the direction of your life at the present time. Keep the things you are sure will be of use and let go of any items that no longer fit with who you are or where you are headed.
There is such a beautiful clarity and alignment of purpose that can take place if this is done in a considered way in the first few weeks of arriving in a new place, and conversely, there is the possibility of considerable stagnation and going off track if it is done unconsciously or is delayed. Stuffing unopened boxes indefinitely in the attic, garage or a junk room is not a recommended option for anyone who values their quality of life!
