Holistic Cleansing

For those that don't know, holistic means that the whole person is considered for healing or any improvement rather than just one part. For me to perform at my best I know that I can't just cleanse or improve one area but I have to be mindful of the whole package. I have noticed that I can continually cleanse my home by dejunking, but if I haven't cleansed other parts of me then my home just gets junkie again. For example, if I haven't adequately cleansed my spirit by repenting or forgiving then there is a negative emotion that will drive an increased need to accumulate "stuff" as a way to falsely try to compensate for something negative.

So my continued quest is to cleanse all parts of me. In the spiritual realm, to ask for forgiveness; in my physical world, to cleanse my body and my home of junk; mentally and emotionally, to give up negative thoughts and emotions that will eventually sabotage health and peace; and socially, to get rid of any bad feelings towards someone.

In cleansing and getting rid of the bad stuff, I make more room for the good but I need to remember that the good isn't always "stuff," but really just a joyful feeling that doesn't have to be dusted and that is good news because I hate to dust.
