When you dream about houses, it's said a house symbolizes your psyche.
Packing comes easily to me. So does emptying a house. Belongings serve a purpose, and then they don't. Clearing a room, or clearing a house has always been about making space for new ideas and new energy.
When I packed for a year in Spain, I brought more than I needed and I couldn't take it all home. I am back in Spain to collect some of what I left here. Convenient, eh?
I've emptied entire houses without looking back and I had to buy a ticket to Spain for a sewing project, some clothes, and a few books that I'll probably leave here.
Pretty clear my "things" didn't have much to do with the journey.
If you're planning a trip, what do you want to take with you? What do you think you need? What comforts do you require? How might your journey be different if you left your usual comforts behind? What might open up for you?
A virtual journey inward requires a different approach to packing. What experiences will you bring with you? What is best left behind? How will your choices affect the space you're holding for a new journey?
