Spring Cleaning

by Angela

Spring CleaningSo often, as human beings, we allow ourselves to accumulate junk, literally and metaphorically speaking. Even Mother Nature knows there is a time for renewal, for rejuvenation, for discarding the dead roots of the past, and planting fresh seeds of the future.

With spring at our doorstep now, I believe we’re being called to take outrageous action: to do a complete overhaul of our old emotions, habits, grudges, guilt, regrets, and ways of being that don’t work for us anymore. What do you want to clean out of your space to begin anew this season?  Are you hanging on to too many old pictures and memories of a past that no longer serves you? Do you have a looong list of people you haven’t forgiven for past transgressions? Do you have debts to pay off, guilt to discard, junk drawers (or rooms) that are calling to be cleaned?

Now is the time to take inventory of your life, to begin a sort of “spring cleaning” of the self, to gently let go of the old to make room for the new, the transformed.

Where do we begin?

I propose we begin with White Sage and Meditation!

  • Open all the windows in your home/office/space. Light a White Sage smudge stick, and cleanse every room/corner with the Sage smoke.
  • Put out your smudge stick and close your windows. Light a small white candle/tea-light in each room. Put 3-4 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil on each candle. While the candles are burning, write down a list of all of the things in your life you are ready to let go of/give up to make room for the NEW! Focus your attention on your GOALS, not HOW you’re going to accomplish them.
  • Let the candles burn themselves out. Speak a declaration into each room, such as: “I am whole, perfect, and complete. I am ready for my renewal.”

Helpful hints:

Here are some questions to ask, and tips to assist you in your “spring cleaning”!

  • To define your goals for this spring, here are some questions to ask yourself before writing down specifics: What habits do I want to break? Who have I not forgiven? What guilt am I holding on to? Are there any relationships I have not cleared? Are there any tasks/repairs around the home/office I’ve been putting off? Is there anything I have said or done that I have not taken responsibility for? Do I owe anyone money, or services? Is there a book, project, etc. that I haven’t completed?
  • Keep your “spring cleaning” list in a visible place (on the fridge, desk, etc.). Cross off each goal as you complete them.
  • Keep a piece of Quartz Crystal on you AT ALL TIMES, until your list is completed.
  • Put a dab of Peppermint Essential Oil on the crown of your head/or on your 3rd Eye (not if you have sensitive skin!) every morning. This will help you to stay focused on your renewal process!
