Aaaaah ! I love beginnings. Although there is snow outside and no spring perfume in the air, I am already prepared to revive the ancient tradition of .... Spring Cleaning !!! I have been searching about this subject on the net and boy ! - so many techniques and Feng Shui this and that, the newest gadgets and environmental bio eco blahblahblah friendly products. Sounds like sci-fi or rocket science.
In order to bring new energies into my life I am not only cleaning and organizing and fixing but also eliminating. Eliminating contacts from my e-mail lists, re-scheduling priorities, changing some habits. Yep, I am more concerned with clutter in my head than in my wardrobe. Mental clutter; maybe that is the most difficult junk to get rid off. Ho'Oponopono people, facts, habits, feelings.
Now, I have discovered something interesting: tomorrow, 2nd February is Imbolc.
Imbolc is an ancient festival, Celtic in origin, and considered one of the greater sabbats. The primary purpose of Imbolc is to celebrate Spring's impending replacement of Winter. This is traditionally a time of purification — and that's why I am lately cleaning not only my house, but also my mind and my body (they are all interconnected). Any Christmas greenery lingering ? Burn it now. Old dead plants - out ! Old books, with old concepts that do not speak to your heart any longer - out ! In order to declutter your life you should only keep things that send you good vibes and are uplifting. Period.
Besides decluttering I also meditate upon what I would like to see grow in health and strength this year. I recommend you reader to do it for yourself, your family, your community, the Earth, and ask for blessing upon your prayers.
