Monsters In My Bedroom

10:50 PM |

Tossing out the bad energy...

Today, being that I had nothing better to do, I decided to go through all of my drawers and start getting rid of things I don't wear, can't fit and wouldn't wear even if I could fit them. As I'm going through these drawers I cam across so many items that I truly believe were giving my bedroom bad energy. Things I didn't even realize I still had. Those are those things I call monsters. Like the old stories that they used to tell kids, these monsters hide in dark places. Their only purpose is to cause you torment and unrest.

One of my monsters were all these clothes that don't fit. They do nothing but remind me that I'm not the size I used to be. While some pieces I found proved to be motivation for me to continue with my daily workouts, others were just reminders of a place and time I will never be able to recapture. It was beyond time to let that go, so in the Goodwill bag they finally went.

The other monster I had in my drawer were all these old T-shirts of ex'es. Many of us have those in there. Sometimes we don't even remember that they belonged to said person. But if you have T-shirts of your own and you have no feelings left for that person anymore, why are you holding on to their belongings? Some are from the school of thought that you should never get rid of your old man's clothes because your new man can wear them. I don't know about you but why would I want my new man in the clothes of the man I got rid of? I had plenty of my own T-shirts to wear to the gym and to bed so out they went.

I believe everything that surrounds you has energy. Some is good, some is bad and some is neutral. In spaces like your bedroom you need to have as much positive energy and neutral energy in there as possible. This way you can rest easy at night to have a better morning. Think that's just crazy? Every sleep article states specifically that you should keep all items related to work away from your bedroom. This way the bedroom is just a place for rest. It's supposed to help aid in the sleeping process. If that's true for work items, why isn't it true for other items? Even if we believe these items have no meaning or affect on us, subconciously they are affecting our being.

Monsters can be anything, and anywhere. Wether you know it or not you have some monsters somewhere in your house. Things that serve no purpose. Things that you truly don't need. Things that are enabling bad habits. Things that do nothing but depress you. What are you holding on to?

Why do you think I'm always throwing stuff away? It is such a freeing experience. Good for you! Throw, toss, burn, purge your way to freedom and peace of mind!
