Making Space For What You Want

Thereís a healer with a magical touch, who dreams of doing what she was created to do but the thing she does for money leaves her lost, separated from her truth. Another wild one longs for love but holds back because giving her heart means opening her home, and itís haunted by piles of who she used to be. And there is the one who aches to run and dance and twist her body in soulful ways who hasnít even a few hours each week to cultivate the strength she knows belongs to her.

Something must be terribly out of alignment when we–you and me–havenít the time and energy and money (or whatever other obstacle we find between us and ourselves) to be who we were born to be.

We must make space in our lives for what we desire.

If we want to grow something new in the natural world, everyone knows to begin by making a space for the new thing to grow. We get on our hands and knees and prepare the landscape–the garden, flowerbed, or pot of soil. We release the grass, weeds, or remains of last yearsí growth that occupy that space, so that new life can have the opportunity to thrive.

You and I are part of the natural world, why would the principles that govern our lives be any different than what thrives in the wild? It isn’t. In many ways, our lives and wild life are the same.

So, what is it that you want to grow in the gardens of your life? What are the seeds in your heart that your soul pines to bring to life? Look within for your answers and then, look around you. Do you have the space–the time, energy, attention, and money–to plant and nurture what youíve just called into your experience? Or perhaps you’ve resisted asking for fear there isnít a way?

Wonderful article. I'm in a big 'letting go' mode at the mo, and the more I release the things that are no longer important or good to hang on to, the easier I find to trust that it's opening the way for a new and exciting path. The really great thing, is that the good that came from the stuff or situation in the first place is still with me, but the stress of trying to hang on has gone.
Thanks Christy...such powerful inspiration. :)

You are so right. Letting go is hard, but important. I'm currently letting go of a relationship. It's the right thing to do and we're still very good friends, but it is difficult. It will give me the space to go where I need to go and do what I need to do and meet the people I need to meet though, so I'm trying to stay positive and open.

Great article with so many truths. Sometimes I'm so precoccupied with what I think I should make more space for, I don't focus on what I want to make space for. Thanks Christy.
