Spring is a time for cleaning and cleansing for many witches. Of course, January isn’t exactly spring, but in California it certainly feels like it. I’m trying to get a jump start, I guess.
I live in a very small, very cluttered space. The only remedy to this is to get rid of things, but like I mentioned in Monday’s post, I have already gotten rid of so, so much. I really don’t like getting rid of things that I can use eventually (if I just had the time).
But, I also want my space to be a calming, positive space. It’s hard to feel calm when I can’t even get to my closet. I also haven’t had the opportunity to cleanse my space in far, far too long. My room has seen too many arguments, too much sadness, and too, too many anxious episodes. I need that energy to go on its way, please and thank you.
I like my space to be clean before I cleanse. When everything looks nice or organized, it makes me feel less anxious and overwhelmed.
It’s not generally a good thing to go into a cleansing anxious and overwhelmed.
So, I’m focusing on getting my space looking good at the moment, so that I can do the cleansing and make it feel good, again. I spent a good chunk of Tuesday night moving some things around and putting my books away where I can actually get to them to read (which is helpful). Today I plan on reorganizing my craft supplies (again) so that maybe I can clear out one of the sets of drawers I have and remove them to free up space.
I’ll talk a little more specifically about my cleansing once I actually do it, but I stick to a pretty simple “standard” ritual: burning sage (or other cleansing incense), sprinkling blessed water, and asking the Universe to renew the energy of the space.
Is anyone else gearing up for some Spring Cleaning/Cleansing? What are your tips and tricks?
I love you all.
