The other day, I was visiting New York City with my 26-year-old daughter, Kara. She asked me to help her rearrange closets (one of my favorite things to do) and get rid of clothes that she does not need. I was flying back to Santa Fe that evening, so we got to work early in the morning. The night before, we watched Whitney Houston movies —The Preacher’s Wife and The Bodyguard. So, of course, I downloaded the music so we could listen to it on repeat while we worked. We were both so happy in our sweats, dancing around the apartment, rearranging furniture and putting bags of clothes together to donate.
Kara and I both know when you get rid of things, you make room for new, amazing things to enter your life. Whenever we want to manifest something new and good in our lives, we start cleaning closets, getting stuff out from under the beds and passing them on to other people who could really use them. It’s a win-win situation. The items get circulated back into the world, you create room for new things to come in. It’s one of the most powerful, spiritual tools that I’ve used over the years. Teaching your children to give things away when they no longer need them helps them learn to detach from material possessions. Holding on prevents new and exciting things coming your way, the sooner we all learn this, the better.
