You may have heard that “Nature abhors a vacuum”. This saying is used to express the idea that empty or unfilled spaces are unnatural as they go against the laws of nature and physics.
Here’s the definition of “vacuum” from www.Wikipedia.com:
“A vacuum is a volume of space that is essentially empty of matter, so that gaseous pressure is much less than standard atmospheric pressure. The root of the word vacuum is the Latin adjective vacuus which means “empty,” but space can never be perfectly empty. A perfect vacuum with a gaseous pressure of absolute zero is a philosophical concept that is never observed in practice, not least because quantum theory predicts that no volume of space is perfectly empty in this way.”
Now, I’ll be honest with you. I don’t quite understand the scientific part of it (that’s not my strong suit; marketing, manifesting and mindset are), but I can tell you how I use this law of nature and physics for my own business purposes.
I’m a big believer in Feng Shui and how clearing clutter can leave room for new things in your life (in large part because of Karen Kingston’s outstanding book called Clear Your Clutter with Feng Shui.) I’ve recommended it to hundreds of people by now, because it has helped me in so many ways.
By the way, in my experience, clearing clutter and emptying out spaces to attract new things applies to many things in life. One example is that if you clear MENTAL clutter, you end up focusing on one thing and attracting that one thing.
If nature seeks to fill any empty space, and if that is a scientific law in the Universe, then why couldn’t we use it for getting clients too?
So, I tested this out a few years ago, and then, whenever I really wanted to attract a new client quickly, for whatever reason, I would set the intention with setting up a system of folders.
So back then, in my hanging file drawer, I had all my existing client folders hanging and sorted in alphabetical folder. But sometimes, I’ve forgotten to get rid of the folders for clients who had already completed their coaching with me, the Graduates.
If a whole bunch of “graduate” client folders were cluttering up my file drawers, the Universe didn’t have as much room for sending me new clients. So, it was time to clear out the old and make room for the new.
Take out all old client folders and put them in another space.
Next, I grabbed as many brand new client folders as I intended to attract (let’s say 3 for this example) and I put them in the hanging file drawer.
I then added colorful stickies (Post It notes), one on each folder, that said:
- New April Client 1
- New April Client 2
- New April Client 3
As I opened my client folder drawer several times each day, I saw the folders with their bright pink neon sticky notes attached to it.
These folders were quietly, confidently waiting for new clients to fill them.
I was able to “FEEL” what it feels like to see them being filled. And they do. It’s worked every time for me.
And as I signed on one new client, I took the “New April Client 1” sticky off and filled in the person’s name on the folder.
Then, as I signed on another new client, I took the “New April Client 2” sticky off and filled in that person’s name on the second folder, and so on.
I got a sense of accomplishment as I do this.
The best thing about this technique is that it takes almost no time to set up and it’s worked for me every time.
I guess nature really does abhor a vacuum, after all. 🙂
That said, this one’s a no-brainer because it only takes about 30 seconds to implement, so there’s no reason not to do it.
I have many, many tools that I implement regularly to put the Universe to work in helping me attract what I want into my business. I share ALL of them during my FREE Quick Start Guide to Attracting 3 New Clients This Month Special Report at http://www.3newclientsin30days.com.
