Many people perform Seasonal Cleaning of their homes. Many times it occurs in the Spring but there are other times during the year that people have an annual or seasonal cleaning of their external things. This includes throwing away items that no longer serve a purpose in our lives. We throw away old papers, magazines, clothes and many other things that have just taken up space. Some people may paint, sweep and rake up dead leaves, grass and dirt. We can spend a lot of time working on our seasonal clean up. But how much time do we spend on cleaning up our emotional and mental home?
Cleaning our internal home
Just like there are old things that no longer serve us that clutter our external home, there are old emotions and negative thoughts that take up room in our heart and our mind that no longer serve us. These emotions and thoughts can be left over from our childhood. Fear, low-self esteem, unworthiness, abandonment and rejection can all be left taking up space. It’s time to free up that space and make room for new emotions. Self-love, trust, confidence, worthiness and acceptance can be an everyday experience if we just clean that old stuff out.
Looking for answers
Have you ever asked yourself, is there more to life than this? Or, why can’t I feel more joy in my life, or, what’s wrong with me? These are just a few questions we can ask ourselves but don’t know where to find the answers. Start with a little seasonal cleaning of your emotions and thoughts. You just might have a clearer answer to your questions.
“It’s easy to get stuck in a pity party licking our wounds and dwelling on all the people and things that have worked against us. All of the layers we have looked at and even others that I have not touched on can weigh us down. But they can also become a familiar friend and the thought of change and venturing out into the unknown can scare the crap out of us. Even if the results are healing, prosperity, abundance and love, we are not familiar with this unknown reality and may not feel worthy of having them.”
