Spring abounds with symbols and signs; robins on the newly grown grass, crocuses and daffodils. We throw open the windows and throw out old clothes with vigor in our attempts at Spring cleaning. Your chakras can benefit from Spring cleaning too!
Chakra blockages are often mirrored by the state of disarray in the various rooms in your home. A messy or disorganized kitchen could reflect a heart chakra imbalance. A cluttered den or home office may indicate mental confusion or lack of focus. A dusty or unorganized master bedroom can affect your love relationship negatively. Grimy window panes may mimic clouded third eye perceptions. An overstuffed attic or dirty rain gutters may be mirroring a blocked crown chakra.
Rooms and living spaces that typically represent the major chakras are:
- Crown Chakra: Attic, Roof, Rain Gutters
- Third Eye Chakra: Den, Home Office, Windows
- Throat Chakra: Living Room, Family Room
- Heart Chakra: Kitchen, Dining Areas
- Solar Plexus Chakra: Bathrooms, Personal Spaces
- Sacral Chakra: Master Bedroom
- Root Chakra: Basement, Crawl Spaces
Cleaning and Organizing
It is important not to hire someone else to do the clean up for you. A good system is to assign yourself one room or area to focus on each month. The kitchen is a good starting place. The kitchen represents the heart of the home and also mirrors your heart chakra. Once your heart is cleared the project of cleaning the rest of your home will be much easier to tackle.
Assign yourself chores associated with the designated room at the beginning of the month. Here is an example of weekly chores for the kitchen:
Weekly Kitchen Chores
First Week: Dust and wash everything that is in sight (counter tops, kitchen table, small appliances, sink, stove top, etc.)
Second Week: Empty all the cupboards, toss out expired goods, reorganize your pantry goods, dishes and cookware. Get rid of items that are no longer useful.
Third Week: Mop floors, clean walls, and launder curtains.
Fourth Week: Clean oven, refrigerator and light fixtures.
Get started with your Spring cleaning, for both your home and your chakras.
