Sweeping the front porch every mornings an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy
In some of our lives, sweeping has become an activity performed without much thought. In many cases, sweeping is a lost art, replaced by the noisy, efficient vacuum cleaner. But in several cultures and religions, sweeping the front and back porch every morning is regarded as an important cleansing ritual that prepares the ground for new energy on every level- physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally.
Sweeping each morning prepares the ground for the new day at the same time as it deepens our awareness of the importance of letting go of the past to welcome the present. As we clear the energy of our space, we clear our own energy systems. In addition, we create a space that feels clean, clear, and open to all who enter. Be sure to think welcoming thoughts as you sweep, manifesting what you need for the day. Making sweeping part of our daily ritual tunes us into the continuing cycle of releasing the old and welcoming the new that is the the hallmark of a healthy energy system.
Most of us do not have time each day to bring out our broom and sweep. However, we can pause for a few breaths and SWEEP out our negative thoughts and clear the path for the positive thoughts. Releasing all that does not serve us and welcoming the sweetness of our lives.
