If your home or workplace is cluttered and untidy, then you may also have a clogged mind. You could be feeling unwell and your life could be stuck in certain areas.
Amy van Arsdale, founder of ClearedSpaces.com, is a certified yoga teacher from Kripalu, the largest center for yoga, health and transformational learning in North America. Transformation happens when you make time to rest, practice, and listen to the messages of your body, heart and mind.
Your external environment shows what your internal environment is like. In other words, if your home or workplace is cluttered and untidy, then you -all of you, may possibly also be cluttered. Clutter begins to build up when your life starts sticking and not going anywhere. If you don’t begin to clear it, it doesn’t take long for clutter to suck energy away and that is NOT a good thing.
How can yoga help to clear the clutter in your home and your everyday life? Have you ever dreamed of clearing a home office, garage, basement for more space?
Yoga helps open spaces in your body with breath. It helps to fill your mind and cells with fresh oxygen to help calm the nervous system and relieve stress and tension in the body.
How about space in your heart to forgive and space in your soul to grow peacefully? If you practice yoga regularly, you will notice more space opening up in your mind, heart, body and soul.
Can you create space in your mind, body, soul and home? Clutter can create problems in your life. Clutter is everywhere, in our minds, our homes, in our arteries and connective tissue. Clutter creates stuck, stagnant, negative energy, which lingers in the atmosphere around you. If you absorb this energy it has a negative effect on your mind, body and emotions. It is troublesome because it affects your energy levels, decision-making and over all health. Your quality of life suffers because you are stuck. It is relative to the space in regards to your home. Clearing clutter in the mind, body, soul and home are one in the same.
Is the clutter in your home and body similar? I say yes….. a little something to ponder.
