Do you ever find yourself in overwhelm? Not quite sure which direction to go because you have so much "to do" that you don't even know where to start. Or do you find that the thought of stepping into your office leaves a heavy feeling and you are not inspired to do anything? And as a result, you aren't attracting as many ideal clients as you would like and everything feels ... hard?
It's time for a massive energetic spring cleaning.
In all of my coaching programs, I teach our clients how to align their energy so they can ignite their performance and attract their ideal clients and opportunities to them like bees to honey. Remember, everything is energy. Over time, energy becomes stagnant in our bodies and our environments and we get out of alignment. When our physical or mental space becomes cluttered nothing flows and that i
Just recently I taught the Align course and one of my client's phone started ringing off the hook with referrals and past clients who wanted to work with her again. Another client landed a huge speaking contract that puts her smack dab in front of her ideal clients.
When you shift your energy, your business will respond. So how do you do it?
First let's look at Physical Clutter. Physical clutter will definitely stop your flow. So if your office looks like it could be a contender for the next episode of Hoarders, it's time to stop, drop and dump your junk.
Get Rid Of the Clutter! If you don't LOVE it and use it, it's gotta go. Clean out your desk, your bookshelves, your office closet and get rid of anything (yes, anything) that you don't regularly use and absolutely adore. Shred all the papers that you don't need. Organize your file cabinet. Donate all your old books to a used book store. Get rid of your rotary dial phone circa 1980 because you are never going to use it again.
Create an Idea Box. If you are like me, I keep a ton of magazines and promotional pieces that I love and want to use as inspiration. In fact, too many. So a few years ago I bought a plastic container a little bigger than a shoe box and I keep all my inspirations in there. I never let it get too full.
Take Care of Your Technology. Now is the time to clean up your computer and all your other technology needs. When is the last time you backed up your computer or run a security check for viruses? Here's a must-do technology checklist for spring -- simple yet crucial tasks for your security, backup and even your printer.
Deep Clean Your Space: You don't want to marinate in an environment that has bad ju-ju do you? Now is the time to clean your carpets, pull everything off your shelves to dust, wipe down your walls and ceilings and clean your windows. Glass and carpets are breeding grounds for stagnant energy. There is a great cleaning checklist on Real Simple. While you are at it, you might as well burn some sage for good measure.
Create An Inspiring Space: You don't have to spend a lot of money to have an inspiring space. Move the furniture around. Throw on a new coat of paint. Go down to a discount department store and pick up a few inspiring knick knacks, a candle or a new throw rug. And nothing breathes new life into a space like fresh flowers.
In part II of this article, I will share my strategies for mastering mental clutter. Until then ... happy cleaning!
