My home is sacred space. Taking care of my home is an extension of taking care of myself. When my home feels out of balanced, cluttered, and visibly like it’s not receiving the care it deserves, I know that is a reflection of myself. This is tricky for someone who has wanted to tackle clutter for a long time. I am getting there – in my home, on my computer (oh the files!) and in my mind and heart. I am so incredibly aware of how they intertwine.
There are times when I move furniture around, and warn my husband so he doesn’t hurt himself or go into shock when he gets home. The last move was just a couple of tables, but the time before that was moving some big pieces of furniture between rooms. It’s what I do. It’s part of how I shift the energy and create space for what I most need.
But I don’t always have the time or desire to go big when it comes to cleaning and moving things around in my home. Sometimes, even if I wish I could wave a magic wand and have our home look like the sacred space that I know it is, I have to be content to start small.
There is magic is starting small.
There is magic in picking one small space and knowing that you have made it what you want it to be.
There is magic in creating a part of your home that is free of clutter and that fully reflects what you want.
There is magic in creating little altars throughout your home, spaces that bring forth love, peace, and calm even amidst a larger mess.
Last night I chose one small space.
It never ceases to amaze me how filled with junk our medicine cabinets get even when I think I’m staying on top of them.
Today, I chose another small space. Granted, all it took to create this space was removing one misplaced item from the shelf, but look at the magic!!
When you create a calm and sacred environment for you to live in, you begin to feel the calm and sacred within, and that is a beautiful act of self-care.
