Home Space Equals Head Space Part 1
De-cluttering your space is one of the fastest ways to get your mind clear, and get your life in order. Girlosophy has a few great tips on how to get started:
The space around you is one of the key indicators to what’s going on in your mind, and therefore your life. We’re all busy and it can seem at times like it’s time-consuming and unnecessary – and hard! – to keep on top of the mess that all too quickly accumulates on our desks, in our cars, bedrooms, bathrooms and so on. It’s easy to rationalise and give other things priority: our working life, social life, love life and just about anything else that really prevents us from staying in to just sort things out.
At first glance, cleaning and clearing things may seem boring, but there’s a whole new way to look at these mundane tasks, which lifts them to a level of ritual and imbues them with a wholly fresh and spiritual dimension. Everything is spiritual anyway, so the thing is to see the sacred in the mundane (which is the essence of being Zen) and consciously be aware of the finer nuances of all that is energetic.
Clear the deck(s)
There is a lot of value in devoting time and creating the mental space to clean and clear as a daily ritual. It may sound suspiciously like we’re telling you to get back to the days of being a house-proud 1950s woman with her shipshape home, but this is not to say that it’s necessarily regressive. It is, in fact, a progressive way to stay clear and focused, especially in the face of the increasing pace of modern life. Some may even think it’s old-fashioned to care about being fanatically clean and organised, but when you haven’t much time and you need to make certain things happen, who needs to muddle through a muddle?
Get organised and put some discipline into this part of your life, and soon you’ll be right on track. What’s the point of being so fussy? We believe there is a major one, and it’s all to do with your “head space”. So, the equation for this activity is: head space = home space.
Once again, we’re dealing with energy and the message this time is that you can change things in your mind by changing the energy in your physical environment. Being a fully evolved Goddess in any capacity will be much more difficult if you don’t have some sort of a handle on energy in general, and the best starting point is within your personal sphere. We are big on taking charge of things; being pro-active in every area of life is our mission! We also believe that if you really want to experience seismic shifts in your reality, then you need to focus on and be aware of the impact your immediate spaces and environments have upon you. These may be in your home, in your car, your office, or even your local community.
“Your environment has amazing relevance to how you are truly feeling and where you may find yourself at any given point in time, but you need to notice it and be aware of it at all times, and then allow it to give you the clues in order to act.”
Energy is to be fluid and, like your body, your surrounding physical spaces are potential repositories for energy that is either stagnant or blocked when it should be free flowing and harmonious. It’s not hard to feel the energy in an environment. We all assess the energy levels in other places constantly, however we may no longer have the same level of awareness about our own environment. The reason for this could be that we lost the ability to be objective about it and to understand how it’s not working or serving us any longer. So, young Goddesses, you’ll simply have to take those rose-colored (Gucci) glasses off!
It’s the same reason certain cafes, restaurants, and public spaces are evergreens – people gravitate towards them all the time – while others can’t seem to get any momentum. It’s just an energy thing. It’s also common sense that if you have a fresh, clear environment where the energy is light and the vibrations are right, you’ll be able to personally manifest more of the same.
Notice how the energy is flowing in the spaces around you and then you will begin to see where you may need to make certain changes or do some fine-tuning in order to keep your life moving in a positively directed way. You will begin to see the results of your own power if you take the time and put the maximum positive energy into clearing and sanctifying the space around you. It’s all about you and your attitude to rolling up your sleeves and getting into it.
