I’m really into purging right now… Since the temp outside is 105 I can’t call it Spring Cleaning… But I am making room for some changes in my life.
As I look back on my life, I see that every time there was a major change in the air, I purged. Cleaned out cupboards, got rid of clothes I no longer used, disposed of books I no longer needed. Redecorated a major area.
Logically it seems like you would acquire something new and then get rid of what you no longer needed. But in my experience, the purging comes before something new arrives…especially when I have no idea what the something new will be. There has to be space available for the something new to have a place.
I am seriously, even desperately ready for some areas of my life to change. Donating six big bags of clothing I haven’t worn for years, cleaning out and reorganizing a dresser or my messy house-tools drawer, repairing and repainting a huge bird house that was showing signs of weathering…all of these are metaphors for the interior house-cleaning I’m doing. What old, unexamined beliefs have been unconsciously creating their predictable reality in my life? What things have I stubbornly been holding onto that compromise my health and wellbeing? What must I examine that isn’t working for me and with what do I replace it in order to get the results I want?
Several months ago, Steve and Jeanine decided they were ready to try to improve the quality of their relationship. As you read this brief report, notice what they removed and what they added in order to enjoy a much higher level of satisfaction (love and peace) between them…
“Steve and I came to Nancy at a critical time in our relationship. We had been fighting so much and things just continued to get progressively worse and more intense. We both decided we needed to seek help or our relationship would not last.
“Nancy was amazing. She welcomed us and made both of us feel so comfortable that we were able to open up about things we never even thought were issues. We both knew that our communication skills were lacking but we didn’t know how to fix it!
“Nancy’s program showed us how to do something as easy as listening to each other. Listening to one another broke the cycle of arguing and allowed us to have our own feelings heard and understood. We now have true conversations instead of arguments.
Jim and I went through the same exchange process. It took a lot of pain for us to, finally, be willing to let go of some relationship habits that were creating unrelenting conflicts…and then make the effort to learn and practice new skills that actually created the loving, peaceful, even joyful marriage that we both wanted.
If you’re ready for some changes for the better in your relationship, let’s set up a complimentary appointment to see how this can happen for you, as well. https://meetme.so/SpeakwithNancy
Meanwhile shall I tackle the guest bedroom closet next? Or the pantry? Or maybe the barn? I am relentlessly committed to this process. As I make room physically, spiritually and mentally, what will come now that there is room? I got started with a new client last week…Did she show up because of all this space I am creating? I think so…
