Create Space for the New to Enter Your Life


What does creating space for the new mean? It means saying no to things, people, habits, and behaviours that are not serving you well. By saying no to what you don’t want, you are creating space for what you DO want to enter your life.

Clearing physical space means giving away things that are cluttering your physical environment, such as:

•    Clothes that no longer fit you
•    Too many clothes. If you haven’t worn something in six months, this is a sign that you may have outgrown it.
•    Shoes/makeup/accessories
•    Paperwork
•    Information that you haven’t used but are hanging onto because you think you might need it one day
•    Anything else around you that makes you cringe when you think about it.

Here are the spiritual reasons for giving away to make space for the new:

•    By giving away the stuff we don’t use, we are being generous and charitable, making sure that things are put to good use.
•    We believe that the Universe is an abundant place, and things will always be there when we need them. So, we don’t need to hang onto things out of fear of not having enough for the future.
•    And my favourite: We never really own anything. Nothing ever stays the same. Nothing is permanent, and we are not attached to things of the world. We know that we have certain things today and will have new things tomorrow. Today we may be living in this house and tomorrow we may be somewhere else. We are keeping the flow going, knowing that there is a season for everything.

What about spiritual cleansing? Are you hanging onto habits that you need to let go of? Perhaps you are hanging onto emotions that no longer serve you, such as fear, resentment, or self-sabotaging behaviour. Anything that drains you of the joy of living today, in the moment, needs to go. As I made a list of the emotions I need to let go of, I had my beautiful mastermind group help me, hold me, love me, and nurture me through the painful emotions to make room for new emotions to enter my life. I always say to my clients that coaching is not about being perfect. It is about accepting ourselves in the midst of imperfection, willing to ask for help during difficult moments. If you don’t have support in your life right now, to ask for help in dealing with and letting go of difficult emotions, then I encourage you to seek the help you so deserve.

How about relationships? Are there people in your life who are draining you of precious energy? Are there relationships you have outgrown? Take heart! If you want new relationships to enter your life, then make room for them. Create the space by letting go of what isn’t working. You don’t have to do it all in one day. Just be aware! Perhaps you are in a close relationship that you don’t want to let go of, but you know you have just been playing safe. You can change the way the relationship works by taking a risk to do something different. It may require stepping out of your comfort zone, but it is worth a try!
How about making space of time? Do you like to fill your space of time by just being busy? If your goal is to have more fun in your life, then perhaps you need to evaluate the activities that fill your space. Which of those activities do you really like, and which do you do because of external pressures?

Why not delegate things that you no longer need to do, and make time for the things that best use your time and talent? This month, I hired an assistant so that I could let go of the administrative work and open up space of time for clients who want to benefit from my coaching services. Since I only like to work during the hours that my son goes to school, having an assistant gives me flexibility to focus on coaching calls. Be creative about delegating the things that you don’t need to do yourself. One of my clients tripled her income by focusing her energy on what she was good at and finding creative ways to give away what she didn’t like, without actually hiring anyone. You, too, may want the help of a coach, mentor, or friend so that you can focus on what is truly valuable to you. Give yourself the gift of asking for help to create space for new things to enter your life.

Let go of whatever isn’t serving you—because there are no external pressures or rules, only an internal and eternal beautiful you. A unique you. Honour yourself; create space for everything to enter your life so that you can shine your light!
