I was drawn to this stone when I visited one of my many favorite rock shops, Terra Stones in Astoria, OR. Then, another piece of chlorite in quartz showed up yesterday in a subscription box. I've never had any chlorite in quartz before, so clearly there's something in the energy of this stone that is for me in my life right now.
Perhaps not surprisingly, I've also been purging. For the past several days, I've gone systematically through drawers, closets, cupboards, shelves, and bins and ruthlessly thrown out anything that I feel no longer serves me or suits my current energy. It's been an intuitive process - if something doesn't make me feel fantastic, or if it weights me down, I get rid of it. With each item I throw away or donate, I feel new sense of spaciousness. I had so many possessions I was holding on to that just didn't matter to me.
I also burned old paperwork there was no reason I need to save...things like old bills, and court papers from divorce and child support battles. These are energies from the past, and holding onto items that still support that energy keeps part of me planted there.
I've rid myself of many items with, I'm sure, more to come. Many are things I once felt I needed because that's what responsible adults who had reached a certain "station" in life had, for example, certain types of art objects and china. Other things I'm ridding myself of are associated with unhappy memories in my life, hobbies I dabbled in but gave up, and so much more. I no longer have space in my life for these things I once had that were the accoutrements of a life that never really felt quite like mine.
While I've purged physically, I've noticed an emotional and spiritual quickening, as well. My life feels lighter. I feel ready for and open to new energies I choose to cultivate in my life. I've shed the things I thought I was "supposed" to do and be so I can revel in a space where I am being and doing what I choose.
What do you have that's holding old energy? Is it time to cleanse and purge? Is it time to make space for the most vibrant, joyful, and alive you that you can be?
