Move 27 Things
Begin by sitting comfortably, taking some deep breaths, and clearly getting into the "feeling place" of the types of energy and conditions you'd like to manifest. For example, cultivate a feeling of expansion, clarity, joy, abundance, and success. You might see visions aligned with these conditions, and feel the giddiness and excitement they inspire. You might also think in affirmations like, "I am so lucky!" Life is so wonderful!" and, "Blessings are everywhere!"
When you feel centered in your intention, begin to become conscious of your home environment. If it needs to be cleaned, clean it. If clutter needs to be cleared, or things need to be organized, clear and organize. If you do any of these things, take note of any items that you move or release - even if they are small, or if you just move them to clean (like moving your couch to vacuum behind it). Make a tally of each item you move.
When this is complete, assess how many items you have moved. If you have not reached 27, look around again, and rearrange and reshuffle a little. For example, you might refresh your family photos, storing the ones that have been displayed, and displaying new ones. Or, you might take out some of your stored decorations and replace some of the old ones. Maybe it's time to change the sheets? Or, clear out the fridge? Get creative and follow your intuition, making a tally of each item that you move.
I can imagine that some of you may ask questions like, "If I change the sheets, do I count that as one item, or 4 - the fitted sheet, the flat sheet, and one for each pillow case?" My answer is, it's really up to you about how thorough you want to get with this. The ritual will work either way, so go with your gut.
Then, stop when you get to 27, or, if you're on a roll, keep going! You'll find that this will "unstick" things, activate your luck, and get things flowing very quickly.
