“If you can’t get rid of the skeleton in your closet,
you’d best teach it to dance.”
— George Bernard Shaw

Want to find new romance … a soul mate … the love of your life? The first step to finding the right partner is becoming the right partner, and the first step to transforming ourselves and getting ready for love is by getting rid of anything – and sometimes, anyone – who stands in your way of becoming all you can be in a relationship.
In opening to soulful love, we are required to take personal responsibility for putting our lives in order for a relationship. It requires preparing body, mind and being, as well as literally creating the space for love to enter. You have to be committed to bringing order into your life on ALL LEVELS — physical, psychic, emotional, financial, and spiritual.
So get ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Your mission is to ditch the things that will get in your way of being able to be fully present with a new beloved.
To accomplish this, you must go down to the basement of old relationship baggage and then poke around the attic of broken-heartedness of the past. You have to look at the places – physical, emotional, spiritual – that still keep you tethered to the past.
Why cleaning love clutter is important
It may seem contrary to clean up love clutter, yet also embrace the concept that soul mate love has its own schedule and the journey is filled with great mysteries and questions – that it can be necessarily rushed. But imbedded in this journey must be the trust that somehow, when the time is right and you are ready, you will know that true love will appear. It’s just that if you have too much love junk from the past in your life, you may not be able to recognize true love when it comes to your door.
For example, if you house is filled with mementos and reminders of lovers past and/or love gone awry, it is very difficult to focus on a fresh start in a positive relationship with someone new. You may not even be aware of the subtle influence it exerts in your love life if you live with constant reminders of love’s disappointments, pains, or even overt reminders of love’s better days…
