After and long and hard winter the pulse races and the heart flutters with the coming of spring. Feeling the warmth on ones back, sitting in the garden amongst nature, enjoying the renewal in life, must be one of the most uplifting moments of the year. It’s a time when we throw open the windows and let in the fresh air, clear out our cupboards and dust and polish seeking a new start after the heaviness of winter. What we are doing in spring is embracing a new beginning and looking forward with hope to the months ahead.
When we start clearing out and making way for the new in our daily lives we don’t often think about cleaning out our subconscious mind. It’s a place where there are many dark corners that haven’t been cleared out for years or if ever. Spring cleaning your mind is something that will reap many benefits. For many this is something that has never even crossed their minds, because why should it. It’s only when you begin a spiritual journey or you need to change the direction in your life that you being to look for ways of doing just that.
Many people will think this is quite barmy but I would say to them just give it a try. Begin to think of areas of your life that cause you difficulty and try to think back to a starting point where this began. It maybe that something you find really difficult to change about yourself comes from preconditioning from past lives or someone else’s perspective. Many of the difficulties we experience in life are caused by preconceived ideas. Often we pick up ideas that our parents have instilled in us in childhood and we carry them forward in life as if they were ours. This is where a pattern can begin and we take their ideas forward and they become our ideas. Often this leads us to be judgemental of others or causes us not to move forward with an area of our life because the idea is something we can’t contemplate because we have been conditioned to think in a certain way.
SPRING CLEAN YOUR MIND
Think of three things that cause you difficulty in life – Divide a piece of paper into three and write them down – Give some thought to where the problem stemmed from – Write it down under each heading – Settle down with some peaceful music – Visualise sweeping out the dark corners of your mind – See them bright with illumination, open your eyes – Fold up the piece of paper and set light to it over the sink – Wash away the pieces with the water from the tap.
Begin the new season with renewed vigour and hope in your thoughts, mind and life.
