I am not what anyone would consider a fanatic clean freak by any stretch of the imagination (least of all my husband). In fact he thought it was beyond ironic when I cleaned houses for a time to make extra money while the kids were in school! But even I love to throw the windows open on those first warm spring days and give the house a good once-over!
It just makes me feel fresh when I’ve scrubbed and dusted until everything around me shines. I like reorganizing drawers and closets and throwing away old magazines and whatever is no longer necessary or useful. Since the first day of spring is tomorrow, March 20th, I’ve been gearing myself up for a good cleaning session and it got me to thinking.
This is a really good time to do some mental spring cleaning as well. Periodically I think it’s a very good practice to stop and consider any mental baggage we would do well to get rid of. You know what I’m talking about – negative thoughts and thinking patterns we may have fallen into; old limiting beliefs that may have crept back into our thinking; guilt, shame, fears, doubts and any memories that no longer serve us.
It is “soul detox” in my 3D Living Plan. Your soul is your mind, will and emotions and periodically inventorying and detoxing those areas will keep you from getting bogged down with garbage.
If cleaning the house can make me feel so fresh and clean, can you imagine how light and free it will feel to clean up those unnecessary and toxic thought patterns?
Is there some mental spring cleaning you need to do?
