What really is this thing called “Spring Cleaning”? Where did it originated from? I never heard of it while growing up. My mom always kept the house immaculate let me tell you when you were done using a glass you had better washed it, dry it and put it away. Was I missing something? Of course in those days we had no internet to look up the meaning. I came to know the meaning, many years later when I myself became a wife and later had children.

Of course I tried to be just like my mom, never using the living room because that was only for “special guest”, or only using what I call “occasional dishes: you know those pretty ones with that special gold rim that you only use when guest come over? Or for Special Occasions, but don’t use them for yourself…

It amazes me that after so many years when visiting my aunt she still has plastic on her couches so they won’t fade. She never sits down in her beautiful living room, unless of course there is a “Special Guest” when I asked her why, her statement to me was “They are antiques, only to be used when necessary”. My poor uncle died last year only to use those couches practically a couple of times. What does it take for you to realize that YOU are that “Special guest” that you can decide to either wash, or clean or sit wherever you wish, that no one is more special then “You”.

If our creator God that created all including “You” as perfect beings, what do you think makes you? We go through life wondering why this and why that, without realizing that we may need to clean out the clutter in our souls of all of the conditioning, all of the agreements that we made that creates disharmony in our life’s. So how does one clean out the clutter?

I invite you to look closely at what no longer works for you, I suggest making a list. On one side of the list write out what does work or serves you, on the other write out what does not work or serves you. A word of caution here, you may experience anxiety. It is ok to feel the anxiety. Remember that we have been condition to wash the plates immediately after use, or not sit in a living room or whatever it may be. I am not asking that you never clean your house or leave your dishes undone, or never sit in your living room, what I am trying to say here is that you are in the same court as creator God, that is ok to eat from those nice gold rim dishes any time you wish. It took me practically 32 years to finally say enough is enough, I am eating from my nice dishes and I am sitting in my nice living room.
