Do you want to create something new? Look around. Do you have space for that new thing to exist in your life or space? If not, it’s time for you to make space.
According to the Kabbalistic creation story, in the beginning the Divine was everywhere and everything. To allow something else to exist—the world as we know it including humans, the Divine had to contract and create a space. This void within the Divine became a space into which something new could be created.
In the same way, you need to create a void where the things you want in your life can be born and exist.
My challenge to you this week, therefore, is to get rid of the stuff you don’t need. Throw it away or give it away! Purge! Cleanse! Make space.
In particular, get rid of things in your office if you want a new job or additional clients. Get rid of things in your bedroom or living room if you want a new relationship.Get rid of things in your closet and bathroom if you want a healthier body.
Then see what happens…
If you want to follow the path of the mystical creation story, once you create space, focus your attention on what you want to fill it. The Kabbalists say the Divine shone a beam of light into the void, and with that energy and focus gave birth to the world as we know it and everything in it.
Spend some time visualizing or meditating on what you would like to fill your void. Place your energy into that space.
