Shoebox Organized, Maybe, Maybe Not Yet

How To Reuse A Shoebox

I just read this article by Kim Ann Curtain of The Coach Shoppe. She is a life coach, with a vision and purpose to empower people to live life abundant, extraordinary, and with joy. I first met Kim at a Constant Contact event (online newsletter service). Cards were exchanged at the meet and greet. As many people should do she called or emailed (can't remember). I asked her "What does a life coach do. Is it a series of 'You can do it' and 'At a boy your a winner'. "
She was kind enough to give me a free sessi0n. My assignment was to give myself a gift every day. Not an easy task if you are so used to doing, going, trying to make it, paying bills, etc etc. You get the idea you are last on the list if you even make it all to the list. It was a good exercise that I still try to practice.
Recently in Kim's blog is a fantastic article about Space Clearing
Your Life. Below just one of the steps for making your life sacred. You will get the shoebox reference after reading the entire article.

1.) What does this item do for me energetically?
Ask yourself this question about everything in your space, including pictures and furniture: "Does my energy lift or does it drop when I think about it or look at this item?" According to Karen in her book, Sacred Space with Feng Shui, Learn The Art of Space Clearing and Bring New Energy into Your Life, what usually stops people from clearing clutter is the phrase "just in case." "Just in case, I can never afford or find this again." Which really means preparing for a situation of neediness in the future, it sends a message to the Universe that you don't trust it to provide for you. If you haven't used it in a year or it pulls you down, clear it out; don't let the fact that it's an heirloom, a gift from a favorite relative or friend, stop you! Give it away, throw it away or have someone come and take it away. This will open up space literally and figuratively to allow the things you DO want in your life to show up. You must open up space so that what you want will have room to arrive. "Realize that everything you own holds your attention." Ask yourself is THAT really worthy of your attention?
