Happy 1st Day of Spring!
This year feels like it’s moving along really quickly and now that we’ve officially arrived at Spring, it feels like we’ve hit a milestone in 2018. Even if it’s still cold and stormy at your house like it is at mine or if you’re still getting snow, the hope of Spring is officially upon us.
This season brings with it renewed energy, and often a new lease on life.
You may notice that you start feeling excited about starting some new projects, picking up some projects that have been on hold, or that you feel guided to shake things up around you.
This season is a big one for clearing away the old and making space for the new. If you’re feeling a call to make some much needed changes, you’re right on time.
Below You’ll Find Some Ideas to Help Welcome This New Season and Shake Things Up a Bit Too…I hope this inspires you to come up with some great ideas and ways to move into Spring in the ways that are right for you.
This is a great time to open the windows (even if you have to bundle up while you do this one) and get your smudge bundle out to clear the energy and space in your home, office, garage, and or out buildings.
Using sage to clear the energy helps to move out any old stagnant, heavy, or trapped energy that could be hanging around your home. It’s natural for energy to build up when it’s cold outside and the heater is running to keep everyone warm and cozy inside.
Trapped energy can lead to lethargy, irritability, feelings of heaviness within the mind and body, and can also dampen inspiration, ideas, and solutions. Smudging clears the heaviness or density out of your home and moves out any energies that you don’t want hanging around.
Please make sure to completely put your smudge stick out once you’re finished using it. Running in under water works really well and it will still light easily the next time you use it.
Clearing the Clutter:
The desire to do Spring Cleaning is a real thing and getting into any closets, garages, drawers etc. to clean things up is a great way to make space for this new season. Clutter, similar to heavy energy has an impact on the spaces and the people and pets in the home.
If you feel like you don’t know where to start, choose one small project like a kitchen drawer and go slowly. You’ll notice that as you clear away the clutter you’ll have a surge in energy and you’ll find things that you can donate or recycle in the process.
Your home will feel lighter and brighter and you’ll notice that you feel better too.
Clearing Clutter also helps to increase Manifestation Principles because as you streamline the physical surroundings in your life, you clear out distractions from your mind and body too.
You’ll notice that as your environment is calm, clear, and clean you’ll experience more clarity and calm too. (I call that a win-win.)
Add Some Color:
Bringing flowers into your home or planting some color around your home and in the garden makes everything feel bright, new, and refreshed. You can do some colorful potted plants if the ground is still too cold or snowy in your neck of the woods. Think pansies, violas, and alyssum or you could make some beautiful succulent pots; the options are endless.
If you don’t have a garden of your own, you can also add color to your home with throw blankets and decorative pillows.
Sometimes, a light and refreshing scent can make your whole home feel like Springtime.
Here’s one of my favorite Floor Cleaning Recipes.
(Yes, I know super dorky, but I love stuff like this.)
1 Part White Vinegar
3 Parts Water
5-7 Drops of Tea Tree Essential Oil
5-7 Drops of Eucalyptus Essential Oil
5-7 Drops of Lavender Essential Oil
- Mix in your mop bucket and mop away.
- The tea tree and eucalyptus are naturally anti-bacterial and anti-microbial so they’ll keep your home clean while making it smell incredible.
- Plus, no toxic chemicals so you can feel comfortable walking around without socks and shoes and your fur babies won’t be ingesting anything dangerous.
I hope this little list helped to jump start your excitement about this new season and gave you some ideas of your own.
I’m off to do my floors…and I’m wishing you a wonderful new season; I hope it’s full of happy surprises, new opportunities, and lots of inspiration!
