Spring has sprung and I am in serious decluttering and cleaning mode! Since I love doing things with others, I decided to share this with my readers and shout it out to the world. Why now? Well, the aforementioned Spring has arrived in Tennessee. It is time to throw open the curtains, raise the windows and come out of our Winter hibernation.
As a feng shui practitioner, I have an eye for how we use spaces in our home. As my mother's daughter, I cannot stand clutter or dirt. Unfortunately, as we have burrowed out from Winter, I realize we have both. Not. For. Long. In addition, as I take on clients with my business, what I realize is that many of my clients need not only my help in web design or system development for their business, but they need help digging out of the holes they are in. In other words, they are SERIOUSLY OVERWHELMED with the amount of "stuff" surrounding them physically and are having a hard time moving forward with their goals and dreams because of it.
So, this week and next (one room per day), I'll be cleaning and decluttering and sharing with you my thoughts on this as well as resources to help you become unstuck from the things holding you back. You can go to vibrational healers, burn candles, dance naked in the pale moon light. But, if you have a truck load of sh*t around your house holding on to negative energy, forgotten dreams, past projects, you are holding yourself back from living the life you want.
Yesterday I started with my front room on Periscope (@danacroy) and today will be moving into the kitchen! Follow me on Periscope or check me out on Twitter (www.twitter.com/danacroy).
In the meantime, I want to share with you an online resource that I follow. Ruth Soukup over at Living Well, Spending Less just released her new book Unstuffed. And, she is running a 10-day decluttering #challenge on her website and Instagram.
Don't forget, follow me on Periscope to walk through my Spring Cleaning this week and live your best life in 2016!
Do you remember last month when I blogged about my Circle of Manifestation? Well, here we are in month two and this week a few women came to my home to continue this amazing work. Month two our focus was on sharing what had transpired over the last month and releasing what is blocking us on our path to manifest our dreams. I can tell you that I had so much to share and fear I overshared if being completely honest. But, the last month has been one of releasing. I have had issue after issue come up to be cleared and have cleared until it hurt.
We talked and colored (thanks Leonie Dawson) and drank cider and my hope was that when everyone left they would dig deep, look at their blocks and see both their goals and the way to get there clearly. But, what if you don't know what you want? Don't have goals? No dreams? I've thought about this many times and was asked that question this week by someone participating in this circle.
Okay. Let's be real and honest. Your dreams, your goals, your visions do not have to be earth shattering - change the world - attempts at manifestation. They simply DO NOT. I will share with you my goals from 2015 and you will see what I mean.
Pay off medical debt
Purchase a new bed and mattress
Finish our year of homeschooling
Get clarity on what my kids need educationally
Create a plan to build a business (this part of the goal was not added until July)
That's it. Now, was this life-changing? Yes. For my family the answer is yes. Did I rock the world and make a statement by setting (and achieving, I might add) these goals? Well, it depends on whose world you are talking about. Why am I sharing this with you?
Everyone needs a goal(s) in life. I believe this. Your goal is different my goal. Your goal may be to be the best mom you can be. Great. That's your goal. Your goal for the year may be to clean out every closet in your home. Great. Your goal may be to set better daily habits for yourself like make the bed and clean the sink at night. That's your goal. Manifestation and goal setting are not about creating enormous goals that are a going to alter the trajectory of every human on the planet. They are about looking at your life and evaluating what you have (or what you don't have in some cases), prioritizing and working to achieve that life you want.
My goals this year are much larger than last year. They revolve around personal goals that primarily affect me and big goals like creating a rock-star business that serves the modern day mystics of the world. There are big financial aspects to my goals this year. There are spiritual aspects to my goals this year.
The point: what is your heart's desire? That is your goal. Big, small, in-between. Only you know what you need to manifest in your life. Only you know where you are going. Clear the mental and emotional clutter, dig deep and find your answer. Your heart will lead the way.
I’m Dana Croy and I am a modern day mama. Balancing family and work is not always easy (not to mention a little self-care). Though being Mama to two fantastic kiddos is a huge part of my life, that was not always the case. I wear many other hats and invite to sit down and find harmony with me.
