PostTOWNE

The space around us is not empty, but full. I like to imagine this space full of little particles of magic that help create opportunities, inspiration, and possibility for us. There are words for these particles. Some call them Chi. Others refer to them as Mana, Prana, or The Holy Spirit. They remind me of The Force, in Star Wars. These particles infuse our spaces with light-ness. With potential. With hope. I constantly create space around me for these particles to enter my life.

All of us surround ourselves with stuff. Such items embody where we’ve been, who we know, and what we’ve accomplished. They also keep us pointed backwards in time. I know that my stuff is heavy. My stuff is filled with stories from my past and memories and emotions. Whereas I can appreciate this history, I know that my most precious memories and experiences don’t live within these items. So, just as I create space within my body to ingest and digest new food and make use of the nutrients they provide, I make space within my living and work environments. And within my mind through meditation. And my heart through tears.

Once I’ve made space for things to come into my experience, I create snapshots of my heart’s deepest desires and surround myself with things that symbolize those intentions. Things I feel are beautiful. Not things I sort-of like. Not things I tolerate. Things which bring more life into my life. Things I love to look at. Art that inspires me. Books that remind me of the stories contained within. Photos that have relevance to my life now, today. People whose wisdom I’d like to remember. And I imagine those items being surrounded by little particles of magic working to  attract what matches.

I make space because I know I can’t pick up something new in my life until I put down what I’m holding onto. I place things on purpose and with purpose. And then I ask for the things that they symbolize to show up in my life with perfect timing for me and for all others involved.

Finally, I offer a blessing, as if it’s already accomplished. The blessing: It is so and so it is. Thank you.
