We are all given twenty-four hours daily, and we often try to cram far too much into those hours. We seldom give ourselves the space to just sit and be. Making space in our lives is essential in increasing our efforts to manifest the life we truly desire.

MAKING SPACE TO MANIFEST MORE AND AVOID BURNOUT

MAKING SPACE

When seeking to manifest in our lives, we often miss a crucial question about what we want to bring forward in our lives: where will it fit? We can want something badly but not consider what it actually looks like when it shows up for us. Think about something you've recently really wanted, and consider this: did you make space for that to come into your life?

So often, people want to manifest something, but while setting the intention for that thing to come to fruition, they don't take the time to make space for it. They haven’t looked at their calendar to make space for taking action, or they haven’t made space to meditate on the intention to call it forward. Creating space is so important, and I often think this is a missed opportunity or a forgotten step in manifesting.

Do you give yourself space to sit with your intentions and visualize what it would look like if you were to manifest them?

BURNOUT IS AN IMPORTANT CLUE

I have a busy life, so I tend to jampack my schedule to try and fit it all in. I frequently fill my plate to maximum capacity, but I only have so much time and energy to give. Whenever I feel burnout, I know it’s time to make some space and explore what‘s going on.

For me to explore, I have to make space. Often, people don't recognize the importance of making space. Space allows creativity to start brewing, and then once it starts brewing, it's ready to be born. If you don't make space, you'll often miss signs and signals directing you along the path.

You can want something so badly, but it may not come into your life if you don't make the space for it. If I want something new, I have to clear out some things on my plate or calendar to allow the new to come in.

What can you clear off your schedule to make space for creativity to brew?

CHECKING OUT

I know I’m on the verge of burnout when I feel a little tired, reluctant, disenchanted, and just off. These feelings are a clue for me that it’s time to check out and make some space. Taking this break can look different for everyone.

For me, it's clearing stuff off my calendar, going for a walk, spending more time in nature, and enjoying the solitude. I'm not on social media, phone, talking to my husband, or anyone else. I’m spending time with myself, by myself.

I think solitude is so important because it allows us to work out some of the energy that can be causing some of the angst or discomfort within and then lets us get honest with ourselves about what's going on.

What does making space look like for you?

FALLING IN LOVE WITH YOURSELF

By making that space and spending time with ourselves in solitude, you also learn how to love yourself in a new way. Creating that space can allow you to love yourself.

I cannot stress this enough: making space and spending time with yourself will allow you to love yourself in a deeper, more profound way. Do you want to love yourself more? Do you have room to love yourself more?

I love myself a lot. But I know there are things inside me that I can work on and love differently. I can love myself differently. If I can love myself in a different way, I can give more love to others. That will open me up to being more creative and more fulfilled.

If you're not making space, you're not giving yourself the opportunity to be fulfilled or creative.

ARE YOU WILLING TO MAKE SPACE?

When you make space:

  • You learn something new about yourself.
  • Honesty can come to the surface.
  • You'll receive downloads on what to do next and how to do it.

When was the last time you made space? Can you make space? Are you willing to make space? And if you are willing to make space, how quickly can you make it?

Space doesn't necessarily mean you have to spend 8 hours alone or go on a month-long excursion. It can be 20 minutes or five minutes. It could be something that you create a ritual around where you just sit and breathe for ten minutes. As you take a time out, you are saying, "I'm making space, I'm letting go, I'm surrendering."

GO, GO, GO

So often, it feels like society is celebrating our perpetual motion. We go, go, go, moving from one thing to the next without even a pause in between one thing and the next. Space between these movements isn’t allowed. It is deemed heroic and positive always to answer “busy” when someone asks how you are.

It would be more powerful and profound if we learned to embrace the pause. If we were taught to make space, we could experience more calm and less anxiety and depression. People could learn to trust and connect with themselves more authentically.

If you feel like you are on the verge of burnout, this is your sign to make some space in your life. It’s also important not to compare your set point with anyone else. Some people burnout out can easily work an 8-hour day, and some will experience complete burnout having to keep that schedule. It’s essential to look at whatever is triggering a feeling of overwhelm.

Look at your day and look where you can make space. That space could be ten minutes or even a whole day you take for yourself. You need to fill your cup back up and be honest about what you can accommodate while still taking the time you need to refresh.

SPEAK YOUR TRUTH

Allow yourself to be fed and allow your soul to take a break. Allow your human body to take a break and make space. If you are feeling the weight of too many obligations, find creative solutions to create that space. Maybe it’s giving up an activity draining you or delegating something you simply do not have time to finish. There’s always a creative solution to every problem.

Be sure to use your voice with those around you to support you. Admit you are tired. Be honest about what you need. Ask for help. Be in community, share things, talk it out, journal it, to clear that space for yourself. You have to prioritize it yourself because you are the most important person in your equation. And if you take care of yourself in a healthy, profound way, you can give back to others. So make space, my friends. Make space. And more beautiful magic will happen.

Full transcription of the episode:

Hello, everyone, and welcome to today's episode. I want to focus on making space. I think oftentimes people end up wanting to manifest something, and as they're wanting to manifest it, they don't actually take the time to make space. I want you to think about something that you've recently really wanted, and I want you to think about, did you make space for that to come into your life? Meaning, did you make some space on your calendar to take action? Did you give yourself space to meditate about it? Did you give yourself space to sit with what that actually looks like if you were to manifest it?

Making space is so important, and I often think this is a missed opportunity or a forgotten step in manifesting. You can want something so badly, but if you don't make the space for it, it's not going to come into your life. I know for me, I can jampack my schedule, I can fill up my plate to its maximum capacity, and I only have so much that I can give. I only have so much time. I only have so much energy. And if I want something new, I have to clear out some of the things on my plate, some of the things in my calendar in order to allow the new to come in. Oftentimes when I am feeling like I'm on the verge of burnout, I will make space. And when I say I'm on the verge of burnout, where I'm just feeling a little tired, a little reluctant, a little disenchanted, a little off, I can feel that there's something big, there's something more for me to explore.

In order for me to explore it, I have to make space. Oftentimes I also find that people don't recognize the importance of space. Space allows creativity to start to brew, and then once it starts brewing, it can then percolate within the system when it's ready to be born. And if you don't make space, you'll often miss signs and signals and messages from spirit directing you along the path.

So I want to encourage you to look at how you can make space when you're wanting to manifest something; how you can make space when you're feeling a little down, a little sad, a little off, a little disenchanted. What does making space look like for you? For me, it's clearing stuff off my calendar. For me, it's going for a walk, dedicating more time to spending in nature, being more with myself, either being with myself might be taking a day or lunch or an evening where I'm just spending time with myself. I'm not on social media, I'm not on my phone. I'm not talking to my husband. I'm not talking to anybody. I think solitude is so important because it allows us to work out some of the energy that can be causing some of the angst within or some of the discomfort within and then allows us to get really honest with ourselves on what's going on.

And by making that space and spending time with ourselves in solitude, you also learn how to love yourself in a different way. Making space can allow you to love yourself. Let me say that again, making space, and spending time with yourself will allow you to love yourself in a deeper, more profound way. Do you want to love yourself more? Do you have room to love yourself more? I know for me I love myself a lot. But I know that there are things inside of me that I can work on and I can love in a different way. And I can love myself in a different way. And if I can love myself in a different way, I can give more love to others as well. And that will also allow me to be the creative being that I am meant here to be.

And being creative allows me to be fulfilled. And so if you're not making space, you're also not giving yourself the opportunity to be fulfilled and be creative. So let me say this slightly different in a different context as well. When you make space, you learn something new about yourself. When you make space, honesty can come to the surface. When you make space, you'll receive downloads on what to do next and how to go about doing it. When was the last time you made a lot of space? Can you make space? Are you willing to make space? And if you are willing to make space, how quickly can you make it?

And space doesn't necessarily mean you have to spend 8 hours by yourself or go on this month-long excursion. It can literally be 20 minutes or five minutes. It could be something that you create a ritual around where you just sit and you breathe for ten minutes and just take a time out and you're literally saying, "I'm making space, I'm letting go, I'm surrendering." It can often feel that we as a society are constantly moving, moving, moving, going to the next thing, going to the next thing, going to the next thing. And the space in between these moves is not allowed. And society deems this as heroic and good and positive. It would be more powerful and more profound if we were taught to pause. If we were taught to make space, everybody would be a lot calmer, anxiety and depression would be lessened and you would find that people are really trusting and connecting with themselves in a different way.

If you're feeling like you're on the verge of burnout, this is also a very, very, very important sign that it is time to make space. And you do not have to go on a long voyage in order to make it. Whenever I'm feeling this way, I have to make myself a priority in order to do it. And burnout can be and look different from person to person. Some people can feel easily burnt out if they work 8 hours a day and if they do that for a whole week, they can feel burnt out. I know I was recently talking to my sister and she has a lot of appointments for her kids right now and she's like I have so many things I got to do this month and I'm not getting to spend a lot of time at home. And so being that busy can feel super constricting and can also feel as if you don't have a lot of space to breathe.

So if you are feeling that way, maybe you're just super busy. Maybe you don't feel burnt out but you feel super busy, and overwhelmed. Look at your day and look where you can make space. And space can be determined by a minute, by ten minutes, by however much time that you can allow. But it's really important to fill that cup back up. And I know that when I'm super busy I will ask myself what is it that I'm willing to let go of. Because sometimes we make commitments that we're in alignment, or maybe not in alignment, but it's time to let them go. And when we get really honest with ourselves and go you know what, I know I made this commitment but for my mental health, for my well-being, it does not serve my highest good because I am not feeling like it is going to feed my soul. I need some space.

This is called taking a mental health day or mental health hour. Allow yourself to be fed and allow your soul to take a break. Allow your human body to take a break and make space. Also, know that it is okay if you do have a lot of obligations that you know you cannot cancel. You can still find time to feed your soul in a different way. It means giving up something else maybe that you can cancel and also looking at where your time sucks are. Are you on your phone too much? Or are you busy doing something that maybe you can delegate to someone else so that you can make that space? There's always creative solutions to every problem. Sometimes we have to get creative in order to do that.

I also find that voicing out loud like, 'Hey, I'm feeling tired, I'm feeling overwhelmed, I'm feeling this way..." to someone, it allows me to one, to be honest, and admit what's going on. But it also allows the creative juices to start flowing because that honesty is coming out and I'm leaning into community, be it my partner or my family or my friends or someone that I'm interested in and they might be able to provide a creative solution that I had a blind spot around as well. So be in community, share things, talk it out, journal it, and then space will be made. But you have to make it a priority because you are the most important person in your equation. And if you are taking care of yourself in a healthy, profound way, you can give back to others. So make space, my friends. Make space. And more beautiful magic will happen.

All right, guys. I hope you enjoyed this episode. I look forward to seeing the next one. Make sure you like and subscribe. Bye, guys.
