When I was first married with children, if I felt like it was out of sink, then I would spring-clean the whole house. It was a cleansing for me as well as the house, and for that matter for everyone that was in the house. When I finished I would feel centred, re balanced, like my life was back in order. This didn't mean that the house had to be spotless and everything in it's place. It was about how I would feel on the inside. I would feel very settled, able to see things more clearly.
The clarity would sift through to all parts of my life. Nothing was a struggle.
This was something that I did very regularly, it was like my personal Springclean on the inside. My friends started to call me Miss Springclean, and they would want me to come to their homes and do the same.
I have always felt that my cupboards reflected more about how I was living, even thought they were closed and no one else saw inside them. It was how I cared for the things in my cupboard that was important. How I cleaned, looked after and put away all the things that went into the cupboards, the joy I got when I cleaned my cupboards or when I would go to put our clothes away and feeling the love and order that was there for everyone.
