I have a confession. A few weeks ago my house was really dirty. I mean, like you could write your name in the dust on my dresser dirty. And the sand in my back entry hall filled a dust pan! Those of you who live in winter wonderlands know what I’m talking about, right? Somehow the sand they spread on the roads to keep cars from slipping just appears in the house, like magic, except not as much fun.
The dirt was getting to me. I was also feeling stuck, unmotivated and even a bit lethargic. So, I took a day off from working to clean.
I don’t really love cleaning. I know there are people who do love it. I love having a clean house, but scrubbing the floors, dusting, vacuuming and cleaning toilets is not my idea of a great way to spend my day off.
But I did it. And, I enjoyed it. Really, I did!!
Cleaning your home is a great way to shake things up and get back in the flow. Your home, whether it’s an apartment, a condo, a dorm room or a mansion, is meant to support you. The better care you take of your home, the better your home can take care of you!
While I cleaned my home, I felt gratitude for these things:
- Sand ~ helps us keep traction on the roads
- Peace Lily ~ fragrant blooming flowers and greenery
- Kitchen table ~ a place for community
- Stove ~ cooks my food (tied to wealth & health)
- Refrigerator ~ keeps everything cold and fresh
- Toilet ~ indoor plumbing when it’s below zero outside
- Toilet Brush ~ so I don’t have to stick my hand in the toilet!
Cleaning your home, top to bottom, really well, is a way of thanking your home for supporting you. Cleaning naturally involves moving things around which shifts the energy in your space. It’s like removing the cog in a wheel that’s been stuck which suddenly allows you to get rolling and move forward again!
