Tips to help the Overall Energy of Your Home Cleansing
~ Declutter and Clean
~ Discard or Donate Items that No Longer Serve You and That You Never Use.
– Even with children and animals present, it is important to dedicate time each day to cleaning the home. Children are perfectly capable of helping to do this. The easiest way is to make this part of the daily routine. Something that is expected. Physical clutter becomes mental clutter and then spiritual clutter.
By involving children, you will be helping kids to mature into responsible and respectable people who care for what they have. Homes can easily become cluttered and out of control when we put off basic maintenance and cleaning.
The key is consistency. Get this into your routine every day until it becomes a habit that you no longer have to think about. Physically cleaning your home will not only help ward off wandering and lower vibrational spirits but it also contributes greatly to your mental and physical health!
If you find your home has become overburdened with clutter and it seems daunting to take on yourself, invite your clean freak friends over or even consider hiring an individual or local and environmentally conscious company to help you break through the layers.
On that note, when physically cleaning the home remember this…
~ Don’t Use harsh chemicals like Bleach to clean, Bleach actually can burn and scar lung tissue. Stick to things like vinegar(which has no smell or residue after it dries), Baking Soda, Dr. Bronner’s Soaps and Essential Oils.
There are some green cleaners on the market like Seventh Generation and Ecos. If there is another “green” brand of cleaners you are considering, lookout for tricky marketing ploys like “biodegradable.” While that term sounds great, sometimes products that are biodegradable can sometimes still contain artificial chemical perfumes. Always read ingredients on the label. Try to find fragrance-free products or, if they are scented, then make sure the scent is from essential oils and not perfume.
~ Family Heirlooms like antique dinnerware(leaded crystal and fine china are often high in the heavy metal lead). Take one set to keep and shadow box it and type up a story about the family’s memories with it. I’m sure your deceased loved ones wouldn’t want the family eating off of leaded dinnerware, which can bring harm to your health. Then respectfully discard the rest. Please do not donate them, you wouldn’t want the karma of donating leaded items that could poison someone else down the line. Lead is a big problem even in some modern dishes, here are safer choices that are lead-free.
