How did we all go with our spending last week?! Anyone weigh up any good purchases? I actually spent a lot more than I had planned, but it was all because I went on an impromptu trip to the seaside! A gorgeous little B&B, some nice food out and about, a few beers and a hand full of crystals - hello hand-sized rose quartz! - but it was money well spent. A weekend I'll always remember and some trinkets that will last longer than a new pair of shoes. :-)
Anyway, that's all about last week and I hope your week was totally wonderful but right now we're looking ahead to this coming week! I pulled a card today from Doreen Virtue's Mary, Queen of Angels deck, which is a super cute and peaceful deck and reminds me of how I've been thinking about doing deck reviews - do people want to read deck reviews? And the card I pulled, after asking Mary for a message for anyone who sees this, is 'Home'. Ah! A week to think about home... you can clean it, you can invite people over to it, you can buy some flowers or a new picture to put in it (if it's inline with your higher self spender! Haha!) or you can even start looking for a new one if you think you're in the wrong one. Whatever it is this week we need to give a little love to our homes. They protect us, they keep us warm, they are a necessity like food and water and all we do is complain about how we don't like the carpets! (Guilty!)
When I was at the lovely Louise Androlia's workshop last weekend (I'm still half way through writing a blog post about it!) we talked about space clearing and this might be a good week to do some space clearing! Space clearing (if you're new to the idea) is how we move negative or stale old energies out of our house and replace them with new sparkling shiny ones! It's like metaphysical dusting!
Here's my top five ways to space clear!
<3 Loud pop music (anything 80's) and dancing around! Best way to get some joy into a space!
<3 Lighting a candle or a bunch of candles and letting the light shine!
<3 Fresh flowers or a new pot plant depending on your budget!
<3 Sage or incense. I'm not a huge fan of the smell of sage, it's OK, but I only use it for like serious space cleansing cases (you know like ghosts or whatever). I like to open all the doors and windows and then walk around wafting a stick of lavender incense everywhere - make sure you get it into the corners!
<3 Vacuuming! Real life vacuuming and also asking Archangel Micheal to vacuum the negative energy at the same time! Oh yeah I totes vacuum with Archangel Micheal and that so needs to be a sticker or a badge - "I vacuum with Archangel Micheal!" (That is so copy write!)
Mostly though, you have to do what feels right to you! I'd love to hear how you cleanse your space!
Let's do something nice for our homes this week, even if it's just to feel gratitude for the place we live. Remember guys - there's no place like home, there really, really isn't! :-)
If you are waiting for a free reading I thank you for being patient! I have like 70 requests in my inbox right now and doing about 5 a day! Stick with me I hope it'll be worth it!
Love, light and metaphysical dusting!
