The Purge

My Big Sister is really good at organizing things. She is also really good at feng shui. Layer the two on top of each other, and it's a pretty dynamite combo.

My Mother once confided in me when I was in my 40's that she taught My Big Sister everything there was to know about cleaning and housekeeping, but she didn't take the time with me. (My Mother was a working mother before it was fashionable.)

Her reasoning was that I would just learn it from My Big Sister, pick it up from her.

My response to My Mother was, "Uh." (snicker) "Well. No, what I learned was that My Big Sister would do all the cleaning."

Ha. Ha.

What I did pick up from My Big Sister, though, later in life, is the art of feng shui. I'm not good at it like she is, but I get the gist of it.

One of the basic tenets of feng shui is elminate clutter. Get rid of things you haven't used or worn in a year.

So, right now I'm purging my closets, taking clothes to the thrift store, tossing stuff out of my fridge, cleaning out drawers and cupboards. Getting rid of stuff.

I'm shampooing my carpet, which means moving furniture around. Furniture is usually stationary for long periods of time.

All this activity in a dwelling gets energy unstuck.

In the process of purging things physically, the mind also starts to de-clutter. The mind can begin to focus on what needs to stay, what needs to go in life, what is effective, what is not.

Kinda like Zen and The Art of Feng Shui.

Or a Purging Meditation.

Here are a few questions to choose from:

When is the last time you moved furniture in your dwelling?

Anything lurking in your closets that you'd rather not think about?

Ever danced while you're cleaning house?

Ever had sex while wearing yellow rubber gloves?

When is the last time you moved furniture in your dwelling?

last week - while cleaning - but the positioning is already feng shui so i don't muck with it

Anything lurking in your closets that you'd rather not think about?

nope

Ever danced while you're cleaning house?

all the time - it makes it vaguely palatable

Ever had sex while wearing yellow rubber gloves?

do green rubber boots count?

You cannot conceive the many without the one.
