MOM WAS RIGHT! Cleaning IS good for the soul!

cleanSo OK here it is! I admit it! My Mom was right! Cleaning is good for the soul! She has always told me that since I was little and how right she was and indeed IS! I will add that cleaning is not only good for the soul but it’s good for your spirit as well!

I have a little joke about how I know when I’ve lost my space……I look around my home there are dishes piled in the sink,  the windows have a dusty film,  laundry is stacked high and there seems to be a layer of dust on everything.  

When I notice my physical space looking like this, of course, I know it’s time to clean! No matter how long it takes, I begin to clean, room by room, top to bottom. When I’ve finished and everything is sparkling it FEELS really good! I can enjoy my space again. Perhaps you’ve noticed the very same thing after you’ve done a really good cleaning. It feels good right down the soul! 🙂

When I’ve lost my physical space it’s a  reminder to check in on my spirit space as well. Just like the space in your home you have a spiritual space that may be in need of a clearing out or cleaning. In the spiritual sense, there may be energies that have “piled up” in your space. Specifically energy that isn’t yours. 

You could have picked up energy in your day-to-day encounters like work, it could be old from when you were a child or current family & friend responsibilities. There are many reasons why & how you collect up this energy but I’m going to speak of this in general terms. 🙂 So how do you know if you’ve lost your space? Well, that’s a really good question to ask! And the answer is….if it doesn’t feel good it’s probably not yours!

Have you ever thought or made a statement like  “I just don’t feel quite like myself today” “I don’t feel comfortable in my own skin” “There’s so much going on in my head right now”? Do you ever feel overwhelmed or have the feeling like you are unable to move? These are all indications that there are other energies in your space.

Sometimes you can be so caught up in the foreign energies and chatter you can forget who you are. When spirit is acknowledged you remember who you are and the rest merely falls away…..NO EFFORT.  I call this a miracle! As you bring back your own energy/essence everything seems a little brighter, you can manifest your dreams and create effortlessly! You FEEL GOOD in your own skin and you are comfortable being YOU!

Now the question becomes how do you get your space back? One of my good friends calls it needing to “get organized around yourself” again. I know for me one answer is meditation & grounding.  When you allow yourself the space to sit quietly behind your eyes, connect with the planet and let go of the “chatter” you will begin to find the glory that is you.

When I teach simple meditation techniques it’s amazing to watch the students as they begin to release and be in a place of *BE*ING not *DO*ING.  As a clairvoyant I see each person connecting with themselves on a deeper level and discovering their own light. When this happens even the room gets brighter!

The amazing thing about clearing out and getting your own space back is what you might find! Here is a great example in simple everyday life terms: A friend of mine was just telling me that she & her husband cleaned out their basement of all the boxes that were piled there. She mentioned that she couldn’t believe the “stuff” that had been sitting in those unopened boxes for years…a lot of which hadn’t even been unpacked since her move back from Hawaii several years ago!

As she unpacked the boxes, she began to discover pieces of herself…in her words “things I totally forgot about but that I LOVE”.  As she was describing this to me I could hear the joy & happiness in her voice of having re-discovered parts of HER! She was not only clearing out and re-owning her basement (space) but finding the joy of those parts of her she had forgotten about while in the midst of busy every day life. 

Thus it is the same with your spiritual space! The next time you feel like you aren’t quite YOU why not take a moment to reconnect with yourself, clear out the clutter and dust off your aura! You never know which parts of YOU that may have  been “forgotten”, packed away or covered up by other energies that could show up, bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart! SO THANKS MOM! Cleaning IS good for SPIRIT & SOUL!~Shine Your Light Debbie

  1. What a lovely post and a potent reminder that in order to make room for what’s important to us, for the new, we have to let go of the old. This message is so on topic for my day. Thank you Hemal Radia for posting this URL on Facebook and thank you, Daily Muse, for writing.

  2. This is very helpful: the way you use physical cleaning as an example of how important it is to cleaning up your own spiritual space. I especially like the part about re-discoverying one’s self, and unpacking those special gems.

    Thank you!
