Today I wanted to share a powerful story with you about what is possible when you do the personal and spiritual work required to create major life transformations.
Carly asked me to help her with her issue of hoarding. Things had gotten so out of control, she couldn’t allow people to come to her home, She felt it was getting unsafe, and was certainly unsanitary.
But hoarding is a symptom of something going on much deeper. We went to work to discover what was hidden beneath this behavior.
We explored her early childhood and found that there was a feeling of lack in the family. Everything was saved because at some point there may be a need for it. Nothing would be thrown because someday it may come in handy. The problem was that some of the stuff would never have a use, like old pizza boxes and hundreds of plastic bags.
Her logical mind understood the necessity of throwing things away, but the emotional and psychological compulsions couldn’t be overridden. So we eventually decided to explore some past lives as well. This revealed a lifetime where she was a man who had survived a devastating fire that destroyed all of his belongings. Everything was gone and he was destitute.
He had to scavenge for food and anything else that he needed. He learned to collect anything that may have potential usefulness, and to never throw anything away because it may come in handy or be used for bartering. He spent his latter years trying to pull his life together and never really succeeded.
Once Carly saw that lifetime, and really understood the origins of this pattern, she was able to start unraveling it in this lifetime. After about a month, she informed me that she had already cleaned out one room in her home, and was excited to continue. She felt so good about it, and was relieved to be bringing such space and clarity into her life.
What are you ready to work on?
