Whilst you could also transfer this into actually cleaning your house full of clutter, today I’m referring to mindfully cleaning house where your thoughts are concerned.
Emotional baggage can be very harmful and take up space where positive should reside. If doing this is difficult, then turn to physically cleaning and use the sight of watching the suds disappearing down the drain as a metaphor for leaving the negative emotions behind and the clean plate as the beginnings of positive thoughts and in turn actions. Do you really three hundred magazines, shoes you’re never going to wear again or that ticket stub when Jonny Whitehead took you out on your first date aged 15? I’m guessing no. The same applies to those negative thoughts you’ve been harbouring for the past 10 years about something that probably doesn’t matter now.
