It’s that symbolical time of the year in which it’s out with the old and in with the new. But in order for there to be room for anything new and good to be taken in, we have to clear out some of the junk which has been piling up. As good as it feels to declutter our physical space, it feels even better to cleanse our mind/body of the clutter it has accumulated. Time to let go of those toxic habits and thought patterns and scrub down our bodily temples. Now lies the perfect opportunity to seize the moment and let go of the heavy load of old ways. Let’s till the gardens of our minds so they’re ideal for the planting of new seeds which foster our growth and blossom into the beauty of our personal renewal.
Cleansing is a compete process which works on all levels – physical, mental/emotional, spiritual. Just as we would go through our closets and get rid of the clothing that we no longer wear, in the same way we are called to remove the metaphorical clothing from our souls which we have outgrown so that we can slip into something which does not constrict our continued growth. It can be challenging to part with sentimental gizmos and gadgets that have been collecting dust upon our shelves for ages, and it’s not necessarily any easier to part with much of the mental and emotional baggage we’ve buried deep inside our mental closets where it has collected its own vintage dust and seemingly become intertwined into our notions of who we are. Fortunately, we soon find the catharsis of letting go is so rewarding and enjoyable that the pain and discomfort of holding on far outweighs any anguish related to our reluctance to let go.
So get in there! Start cleaning up your diet and lifestyle choices so that your body, your temple, can become illumined with the radiance of newborn spirit. Start clearing out any harmful thought patterns so that your mind can become as clear as quartz so it may allow for the clear light of your awareness to beam through uncolored. Start rinsing your heart free from all resentments and unwholesome feelings and emotions so that the 24k gold soul which is seated in your heart can divinely shine, pure and free. Start somewhere, anywhere, because once the ball gets rolling, you’ll have momentum on your side, and nothing can stand in your way!
