You can put periods at the end of sentences in your life. You can edit what you may. You can sift through all that you have collected. You can throw out or give away that which no longer serves you. But, in the end, what surfaces in your consciousness is what needs your greatest attention and most likely needs to be released.
Moving to a new home is one of the most terrifying changes anyone can face in life. Moving is even harder than divorce and facing a death of a loved one. Moving changes everything in your life. Every single thing!

During the days prior to my move to Florida, my heart, sometimes, felt as if the world had tromped on it and given it back to me to be revived. I had been travelling the road of moving for three months, and every day seemed to get more difficult.
One day, however, I decided, the difficulty that I had been perceiving must change NOW! Here’s what I did to make this change happen:
- I went through every room in my house and put aside, in a pile, every article of clothing, every kitchen gadget, electronic gismo, and beautiful thing I owned.
- I made three piles. One pile to give to someone who was in need, one pile to sell, and one pile to store in a place other than my home.
- I took down every piece of artwork and released all gifts that were from any exes in my life and sold them to the highest bidder.
- Lastly, I asked some friends for help.
Asking for help was probably the hardest part for me. We all must have our rocks that we lean on, once in a while. Three friends came to my aid the next morning to help me move the rest of the large articles.
What this process did was that it got rid of my extra weight that I had been trying to take with me on my move. So much of what I had gathered in my life was no longer needed or even served me. These articles were simply heavy weight that I needed to purge.
This process was ritualistic and wonderful. I laughed. I cried. Mostly, though, I released feelings and emotions I did not know that had been buried into the simple framework of my nostalgic things.
When all of my belongings were on the truck, my car had been hooked up to the moving trailer, and every last paper had been finalized for the sale of my house, my soul finally let go.
I got on a plane and headed for Fort Lauderdale International.
The following day, the moving truck arrived at my new home in Florida. My family helped me move into my apartment. I have not looked back since.
Life is amazing every day. I want it to stay this way—totally present, exotically rare, and perfectly wonderful.
I meditate every morning and also pray with fervor. I feel the guidance of Spirit with me 95% of the time. During the times of resistance or fear, I use simple affirmations to get me back on track.
In the following chapter, I will give you definitions and guidance as to the simplest ways to pray and the most effective directions to use the Laws of the Universe to benefit your unique life. Always moving you forward, never backward and with the knowledge of God Principles, you will inevitably surge toward your—individual—perfect path.
