“Each place is the right place–the place where I now am can be a sacred space. (3)” ~Ravi Ravindra, The Wisdom of Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras: A New Translation and Guide by Ravi Ravindra
For as long as I can remember I’ve always had respect for the space I was in. Not that always knew that “respect” is what I was feeling. But looking back, I can see that, that is what it was.
My Barbies had to be neat and organized. My stuffed animals lined up appropriately from big to small. When I got into my teenage years, my Dad was sweet enough to let me paint my room however often I wanted. I pretty sure about every 6 months I had a new design I wanted to try.
My walls went from paneling to lavender and yellow. Then green, orange and purple while I was in my Scooby-Doo phase and finally Pepto Bismol pink with black trim (that might have been my favorite).
After I moved out, I no longer had my Dad to paint for me – but I COULD move my furniture around. And in a similar pattern, about every 6 months or when a big change happened in my life, I felt a deep craving to rearrange.
My friends and family sometimes made jokes about it. And yes, sometimes it bothered me. But it didn’t matter . I really felt like it was something I had to do.
As I’ve grown older and learned more about myself from the space of observing and not judging I can now see that my need to change my surroundings is not a flaw – it is a gift of alignment.
We all go through cycles in our lives and we are all related to our surroundings emotionally . Some of us are more sensitive than others.
I notice that when I feel a shift within myself, I must change my surroundings to match that vibration. Even if that room has been that way before, somehow, now, it is different.
Space has the possibility of inspiring our muse to come out and play. It has the possibility of inviting love into relationships.
Our homes, offices and cars are an extension of our experience here on Earth. It is important for them to inspire us, love us and hold intention for what it is we wish to create in our lives.
So, if you are someone who likes to change things a lot in your environment, or even in your physical appearance, know that it is not a flaw. There is nothing wrong with you. This is simple your way of moving into alignment with your truest self in this moment.
If you are feeling misaligned, out-of-whack, or off your center – pick a room you spend a lot of time in and rearrange the furniture, paint a wall, find a cool DIY craft on Pinterest and shift the energy in your space. It’s really that simple and truly, truly valuable.
