I saw this pop up on my facebook post the other day and felt it resonate deeply in my body. What I've come to understand is that so much of the healing I've been doing is from very old stuff that I never felt and the old stuff that I didn't feel and the new stuff that I can still push away. So the days I've spent sobbing, going to batting cages to move through anger, going to the sauna to get those toxins out of my body, the days where I thought 'nothing is getting done, I will never meet my man, I will never create my offering to the world, I will forever shame my family, I will never (fill in the blank)'....were actually the very best most powerful things I could be doing for myself.
Taking care of your heart, your body, your soul to clear out the gunk is one of the very best things you can do for yourself.
I promise. It will bring you more joy, more love, more of you to you.
It clears out the gunk so we can get back to our essence. We clean out the rusty, clogged pipes, get the mold out of the basement, throw open the windows to let in fresh air. We are cleaning our house. Now my PTSD mind wanted to stay in that place at times and that wasn't so healthy. Or I would be so exhausted from the sobbing, I wouldn't go for a stroll around the block and remind myself that I was alive and part of this dynamic planet and there were trees and other people and all was well. So, go deep and then go see a movie, go to a park and watch the people, get on the swing and feel joy.
But please, clean out your house. Take the time to honor your heart, any aches that are signs that something is stuck - it's all emotions that want to be felt, honored, seen and loved up. Stretch, do yoga, go to the sauna, dance- move this old stuff through your house- your body. Take some time to write, free form write for 10 minutes- this is you connecting to your soul, giving your soul a voice. What does it want to say to you? Take some time this weekend to clean our your house, so it feels like your home.
