I’m in the mood, the mood to CLEAN! It’s true, once the cold weather starts to dissipate and I find myself making all sorts of excuses to get outside I also find that I get in the mood to clean house! This year I’ve decided to do a thorough spring cleaning! I’ll admit that I’ve actually never done that before but the thought of it makes me feel refreshed and renewed. Ripping apart my house, room by room, scrubbing down all the old dirt, going through my stuff to see what I use and what could be donating and then putting it all back together really gets the energies in your house moving. Don’t you find that you feel so much better when your house is clean? I think it’s because we simultaneous clean up all the old stagnant energy that’s been sitting around as well. When our house is healthy, our bodies are also healthy and we feel more in control and productive. I’ve made a list of each room in the house and wrote out a checklist of things to do, I plan to start with one room and do 2 – 3 things a day until the whole house, inside and out is ready for the new season of my life to begin!

Happy cleaning!
