I have not been blogging as much lately due to some major life changes ahead for myself and my family. Good things though! We also were away for a week on a mini vacay in which we took care of business as well. Many positive manifestations happening right now including a major move. As I’ve been taking time to purge physical things prior to moving out of our apartment I have also been continuing the process of purging emotional and mental handicaps including people, the past, problems, situations and the like.
This morning I opened the curtains to raise the blinds and decided to check out the window sills. I have noticed build up over time but neglected to clean them. After noticing the filth, I proceeded to grab a cleaner and paper towels and wiped those bad boys down! I also thought about how breathing that stuff is in is terrible for your body. As I proceeded to clean the build up of dirt, pollen, and other debris, I felt so much better. I remember when we first moved in I made sure I wiped the window sills whenever I dusted because it looked so much better to me. It was also easier to clean because I did it regularly. Over time I had forgotten about them so it took a little more effort to clean this time but it got done.
As you know, the window sills are the surface at the bottom of a window on the interior side. I place emphasis on “interior” for a reason. Stay with me. Underneath the grime was a clean, fresh surface which was so much more pleasing to my senses including my soul. This brings me to my point. We tend to forget those little crevices that are an important part of our environment/living space and often get overlooked as time progresses. We concentrate mostly on the larger, outer surfaces while neglecting those small spaces and corners that need cleaning too. It happens so easily because those small areas aren’t usually seen by the naked eye. You have to look closer. Usually, this doesn’t happen until we are sneezing, coughing, or just get tired of looking at it because sometimes we notice but put it off ;-).
The same goes for us as spiritual beings inhabiting physical bodies. We often forget to cleanse our souls of build up from years of toxic people, situations, problems, etc. Purging and cleansing are an important part of starting anew. For example, when moving try purging your space of anything unnecessary before packing. While going through items, ask yourself “Does this serve me?” “Do I have a need for this or am I holding onto it just because?” That is when you know you need to let it go.
This is a great way to get into the mindset of cleansing yourself of anything that does not serve you. Removing layers of build up will do wonders for your life in all areas. In order to grow, change, and improve yourself from the inside out it’s imperative to check in to those areas regularly. It’s preventative and helps improve overall health. Once you purge and cleanse you can start fresh which will allow you to move forward mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. When you have those three down the physical will have no choice but to follow suit.
Remember to set time aside daily or weekly (whatever fits your lifestyle best) to check in. If you need to write it down, write it down or put a reminder in your phone until it becomes second nature. Do what works for you and feel better! If you need to set the reminder as “Don’t forget the window sills!”.
Love and Light,
