It seems every blog post I read these days has something to do with spring cleaning. Ever wonder why that is? I’ve done clutter clearing during every season of the year, and although I’m a big fan of clearing clutter any time of year, especially in the Fall, Spring brings a very special energy that makes it a perfect time to really dig your heals in and throw your Will into getting rid of that lingering clutter.
As I wrote in my December newsletter (if you’re not already signed up for my newsletter, click here to do that): “Many spiritual traditions believe that Winter is the time to go inside – both literally and figuratively! What this means is instead of living life so externalized, taking time to do more meditation or spiritual practices, taking more time to be with those who are closest to us, or just plain spending time by ourselves.” Nature hibernates, and often many of us humans find ourselves more withdrawn from the world as well.
What follows of course is Spring, and Spring is an entirely different matter. This time of year stands for new birth, a time of renewal, a time for starting over. In my part of the world it is with great wonder and anticipation that we watch for the flowers to start popping up and for the robins to start showing their faces because these signs mean that Spring is just around the corner. And just like other parts of nature, there is something deep within us that can start to move us towards taking action.
If you harness this power of the energy that Spring brings to the world, you can set yourself up to be even more successful with clearing your clutter than you may be other times of the year. I wrote an article over on Organize to Revitalize with more answers to the question of why Spring is a great time of year to jump in and really get to decluttering.
