Duane Cummings – “The Sensational Guy” shared Key # 2 “Understand how your surroundings shape you” while teaching the 7 Keys to a Sensational Life at the Women’s Prosperity Network Un-Convention in Florida.
I’m like going… “YEAH… someone else get’s it!” I have been living and teaching this philosophy for years, as it relates to our home (and work) environments.
Most people understand that they are personally evolving. Sure some are more aware of it than others, and some of us are actively and “consciously” involved in the process. Yet many people don’t yet understand how their physical environments may not be in alignment with who they are now. While they evolve, their surroundings are stagnant.
Look around you. Is your physical environment, let’s say your home living room, nurturing who you are now… or what you desire to draw into your life? For example, maybe you have been in a nesting mode. Lots of study, reflection, and needing personal along time. Now, you might be desiring to expand. To begin entertaining more, having gatherings, hosting an intimate event, or even drawing a “mate” into your life.
My point is…
Does your furniture arrangement meet the needs of the new you, or your new desires?
Is there an easy flow in the room? Are the seating arrangements encouraging conversation or hindering it? Do you have to yell across the room just to be heard?
Another example is when another person moves into your home. Are their needs and styles being represented too? What about when someone moves out. Have you reclaimed your space? Is your uniqueness being expressed?
Think of your space as a physical representation of YOU. Take a closer look. What does the room say about you? Is it nurturing who you are now, or hindering you? Does it represent who you once were… you know, that time warp thing. Are your surroundings stuck in the past? Holding you back too.
It is so much easier to shift your surroundings to nurture you, than you might think. Simply rearranging your existing home furnishings, and often editing down a few items, will do the trick. You will be amazed at the difference.
So… Release that stagnant energy. Let the NEW YOU shine through! If you need some assistance, contact me and I’ll be happy to be of service.
