Blog: The Nature of Being Organized
Are Your Spaces Inspiring?
Wayne Dyer, author and spiritual development guru, defines inspire as being "in Spirit". Inspiration comes from within us, through us really and is expressed outside of us. It can also come from outside of us in the form of words, a special connection with another person, a place or an event. Inspiration is all around us, but it is not related to thinking. It is a process of connecting inward. It is a natural part of who we are, our essence, and when we open to it, magic seems to happen. When we're inspired words seem to flow, ideas abound, situations pop up "out of the blue". There is an ease and effortlessness that seems almost surprising—those famous "ah ha" moments. When we connect to our heart, our intuition, we are in a state of true creation.
What inspires you? Does nature inspire you or a special person in your life? Where are you and what are you doing or being when you have your special connections to Spirit? Are there specific sounds, colors or textures that light you up?
Take a look around your home or office. Is it full of inspiration or is it flat and dull? Bringing in your favorite colors, textures and sounds to each of the rooms in your home will open up the space for more inspiration to flow through you. Spaces that are cluttered with unwanted accumulated stuff will dull your senses and block inspiring ideas. This is especially true if it is a workspace.
So this week ask yourself—does my kitchen inspire me to cook, does my dining room inspire a fabulous appetite, does my bedroom inspire restfulness, does my laundry room inspire productivity, does my home office inspire creativity? If you can say "No" to any of these, what's in the way? If you were to change just one thing that would create a sense of inspiration what would it be? Take one small step toward opening up to the magic of inspiration in your own home this week.

Have an inspiring week!
Love To You,
