Summer is upon us and it’s the perfect time to get out the good ol’ rubber gloves, Windex, and dusting cloths for a good “Spring Cleaning.” While cleaning, you might be surprised at how much cobwebs and dust bunnies appear out of nowhere, leading you to wonder how you overlooked this mess! This makes us wonder how often we overlook huge red flags in relationships, patterns, and bad behavior. We become so comfortable and used to our surroundings, we forget to look at the situation from a different perspective. Maybe we used to take a few minutes of the day to recollect and refocus on peace, meditation and solitude, but eventually got caught up with everyday routines.
Everyone procrastinates on the “dirt, dust, and cobwebs” of life, until it becomes blatantly obvious that we are hopeless or helpless. If you’re currently in this situation, it’s the perfect time to stop what you’re doing and schedule a seasonal spiritual cleaning! Designate some time for a seasonal spiritual assessment to re-balance and cleanse our mind, body, and spirit. This is a great way to stay on track with your goals and strengthen spiritual evolution and personal growth.
“Spring cleaning will only last for the season, but spiritual cleansing could have an eternal influence. So, don’t just dust behind those bookshelves.”
The start of a new season is the ideal time to clean and reassess. Check on yourself and be honest about who and what you need to feed your soul and strengthen your spirit. Make a promise to yourself to do some thorough spiritual “dusting” of your soul. Create a simple plan to eliminate bad habits and to prevent more negative energy. Just like we clean out the cobwebs and dust bunnies from our homes, we must do the same to our souls. Summer is here, it’s the start of a new season. So get out your handy-dandy calendar out and pick a date for your spiritual cleaning!
