A book written by Marie Kondo is the title of this blog and I read this book in one day (I love books!) and as I was reading it I was surprised how much she was speaking about spiritual practice and being sensitive to energies and listening to yourself. She is one wise woman!
I have always loved cleaning and I really like to see something dirty becoming clean and shiny (yes, I wrote that :D). I even liked to clean my friends houses when I was younger and I still do very much enjoy cleaning, I find it very meditative and purifying process.
As you clean your "stuff" many things come up and I am not just talking here about inner work, I mean the outer "stuff", things that we keep in our house, in our living space.
The book is amazing and it really spoke to me and I did some clearing in my space. What the basics of this book is to ask yourself if, for example, a piece of clothing or a book or an object brings you joy. You just ask this question when holding each thing you own (okay, you would probably not hold up a bed or a closet, but you get the idea). Easy right? But how many of us have actually asked this question when buying things? Sometimes we just go for the impulse SALE or discounts, buy 1 and get another one for free! Yeah, good marketing tricks and brainwashing!
As I was going through my own "stuff" I noticed that I kept some things that I really did not like or I felt that I had to keep them because of obligation or that I did not deserve something better and more beautiful and it was really, really difficult to let some things go, but I did it! Yay!
What was very interesting is what happened next, I started to also let go of habits or thoughts that I have hold onto even though I knew they are not good for me, this was clearly a deeper cleaning happening here. From time to time I would get a sense that I need to clear my wardrobe, it is a nudge from my guides. If I do not listen it comes again and again and again until I do it and something gets transformed.
Marie herself is so charming and cute! I definitely recommend to read her book and I hope that by doing so you transform your life and let go of all the extra baggage that does not serve its purpose anymore.
May magic cleaning happens!
