You Are Safe; Itís Only Change

By: Janet L. Hall and Judith McClure

Have you ever heard the saying that nature abhors a vacuum? Meaning when you let go of, declutter, or release your stuff that you no longer use, need, want or is worthless to you, something will always come into your life to (get sucked  into) replace what you have finally released to the Universe. And not necessarily more stuff. 

In philosophy the horror vacui stands for a theory initially proposed by Aristotle stating that nature abhors a vacuum, and therefore empty space would always be trying to suck in gas or liquids to avoid being empty. The theory was for a long time widely accepted and still supported by Galileo Galilei.. 

In visual art, horror vacui (literally: fear of empty spaces, also known as cenophobia) is the filling of the entire surface of an artwork with detail.

In a professional organizers world we generally refer to horror vacui or cenophobia (fear of empty rooms) as OCD (Oppression Compulsive Disorder) with hoarding and pack ratting attached.

In energy work (thatís what your stuff and you are made of: energy) many believe that clearing out your clutter and creating an environment for your lifestyle can open up new doors and life possibilities for you.  

Now Inn Keeper Judith McClure of the White Springs B&B (Iíve been writing about her the last couple issues with her permission) is none of the above. Judith just needed help making decisions on what to keep, where to keep it and how to sort through it all. 

Here is some of Judithís story, in her own words:

"What brings you to White Springs?" I asked the lovely French couple requesting a room for the night on a week day. Nearly all my guests coming to my hundred and five year old Bed N' Breakfast near the historic Suwannee River have reservations well in advance and usually only on weekends. 

"I'm very good at reading maps," the woman replied in a delightful French accent, ďbut not very good with my lefts and my rights!" It seems the couple took a wrong turn off the freeway and found my B&B! 

Was it an accident that brought them unexpectedly to my B&B, or was it that "mysterious energy" Janet told me would happen when we started to declutter and rearrange the furniture for a better flow of energy? 

Just as I was contemplating this, the phone rang. They were requesting reservations for tonight. Imagine a Wednesday reservation--almost unheard of!  The energy has really started to shift here in my B&B and in my bank account. I believe!  I believe! 

Do You Believe You Can Change?

UPDATE (end of Dec. 2009 I asked Judith how her financial year went): Since Judith went through her change of de-cluttering and feng shui processes her B&B has been HOPPING and she had one of the best financial years since starting her business! She now has guests almost every night of the week, something "unheard of" before she changed!
