Traditionally, this time of year is a time for us to go through our homes and give everything a really thorough spring cleaning. It is a time to come out of our winter mindset and let the sunshine in.
You could start by clearing out the closets, the refrigerator, and if you’re really interested in making way for new life, the basement, garage, and underneath the bathroom sink; getting rid of everything that no longer has a useful purpose, or uplifts your energy. I usually start in the closets – sorting old clothes and jackets. The shoes are next as I eagerly anticipate wearing my sandals again.
Can it be recycled, donated, or composted? Be ruthless in your efforts to clear away the old and gain new, vibrant energy circulating into your life. I also go through gifts and only the ones I absolutely love remain in my home. I lovingly release everything that I am removing for the next person to enjoy.
Your personal environment mirrors your inner state on every level; mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual; so why not make room for what you really love? When we clear away old, outdated belongings, and the energy that goes with them, we instantly uplift our emotions and wellbeing. When we make room for what we really love, our creative juices start flowing and the universe meets us halfway. We make room to plant the new; new thoughts, new ideas, new feelings and new beauty all around us.
