I've been purging a lot of "stuff" lately. I feel like I'm in a transitional period in my life, and right now that involves taking a good hard look at the things I own to see if they still suit me.
I used to be much more emotionally attached to things than I am now. But I have learned that objects do not have any inherent meaning, only the meaning I place on them. And that if the meaning I have placed on certain objects no longer serves me in a positive way, I have the power to simply get rid of those things, along with the negativity attached to them.
A few items in particular often stump me, though - specifically books, music and my own personal journals. I tend to (wrongly) think that there is a finite supply of good books and music in the world and that I will never have another good idea if I get rid of the ones I've already had.
I need to learn to believe in abundance - to believe that there will always be more available to me: more books, more music, more ideas, more knowledge, more love.
I think that in order to do that I need to open my heart and believe that I deserve more so that my spirit will be in synch with the world and able to receive these gifts when they do come my way.
My heart has been closed off for far too long now, and I have only myself to blame. I have let people batter and bruise it until it has become a part of me that I no longer recognize.
But that's about to change. I am ready for abundance. Bring it on.
