Welcoming the Spring Cleaning Spirit with Open Arms



Are you ready? We are waving goodbye to the cold, still slumber of


winter, once again, as we begin to welcome the Feminine energy of fer-

tility, re-birth, renewal. Ahhhh the Spring Equinox is here to greet us with

its warm, longer and brighter days. The opportunity to embrace the Joy

in birds chirping or the tulips pushing themselves through the ground as

new season greeting us at our doorstep. The Spring Equinox, also known

as 'Ostara' in Pagan tradition is arriving in the Northern Hemisphere.


This date marks the start of the Spring season representing the start of a

new year in some cultures and astrology. On a spiritual level, it is a new

time of growth mirrored in Mother Nature as you see the breath of life

again as she sprouts and blossoms. Just before the Equinox, we will

move into the Full Moon in Virgo on March 18th. Now is the time think

about how you can transform your home and release what no longer is

needed for the coming months ahead, now is time to focus.


Spring Cleaning


Cleaning carries the energy of rebirth and renewal. It is common practice

for a pregnant woman to begin what is called “nesting” just before the

birth of her child.


The definition of nesting is a burst of energy a women gets in the last

few weeks of pregnancy that inspires them to clean and organize the

house in preparation for baby's arrival. This is an instinctual drive that is

prepping for the birth of something and Spring Cleaning mirrors this in

preparation for the birth of Spring.


“To welcome this refreshing + nourishing energy of a new season, we can

cleanse our spaces to bring balance and make room for new beginnings! “


Getting to the Core with Dust Bunnies


Your Spring Cleaning is the time to sweep and clear away winter’s ac-

cumulations of dust and grit. Dust is a mixture of dead skin cells, hair,


clothing fibres, bacteria, dust mites, dead bugs and bits dead of bugs, soil


particles, pollen, and microscopic specks of plastic. This dust has accu-

mulated from the beginning of the colder weather’s onset when we begin


to shut the windows and doors. Trapping in all that dust. Adding to the

problem when the doors and windows are closed, there is less moisture

in the air indoors and the drier air creates and drier skin, adding to the

dust problem. When addressing the spaces that need dusting make sure

you include areas such as the ceilings, upper corners of the rooms, light


fixtures, ceiling fans, underneath beds, behind furniture and around win-

dows. You are now making your home feel brighter and bigger which


creates new positive energy as you open to the possibility this new sea-

son.
