Spring Cleaning and Your Chakras - March 2019

by Phylameana lila Desy

A person does not have to look beyond his own home environment to discover which chakra centers may be problematic or blocked. Hoarders are especially at risk of a complete chakra system shutdown. Taking a tour of your living space will help give you clues as to which of your chakras need attention.

Chakra blockages are often mirrored by the state of disarray in the various rooms in your home. A messy or disorganized kitchen could reflect a heart chakra imbalance. A cluttered den or home office may indicate mental confusion or lack of focus. A dusty or unorganized master bedroom can affect your love relationship negatively. Grimy window panes may mimic clouded third eye perceptions. An overstuffed attic or dirty rain gutters may be mirroring a blocked crown chakra.

Rooms and living spaces that typically represent the major chakras are:

Crown Chakra: Attic, Roof, Rain Gutters
Brow Chakra: Den, Home Office, Windows
Throat Chakra: Living Room, Family Room
Heart Chakra: Kitchen, Dining Areas
Solar Plexus Chakra: Bathrooms, Personal Spaces
Sacral Chakra: Master Bedroom
Root Chakra: Basement, Crawl Spaces
and Aura: Porches, Decks, Landscaping, Garages

Cleaning and Organizing
It is important not to hire someone else to do the clean up for you. In order to benefit from clearing your chakra system as well as getting your home clean and uncluttered, it is key that you participate in the house cleaning. Of course, you can certainly ask family members who are living under the same roof with you to roll up their sleeves and help out. All members of a household play some role in creating the messes, so everyone will benefit by sharing in the cleanup. Children should be responsible for cleaning and organizing their own bedrooms. How much you help or supervise the children cleaning will depend on their ages. A teenager should be able to tackle clearing a bedroom with very little or no assistance.

Routine Surface Sweeps
A quick sweep of obvious clutter will help you feel better temporarily, but the real test will be instilling the habit of keeping order in the future. A surface sweep is a very good habit for daily upkeep or weekly cleaning. A surface sweep is when you will walk through each room of your home and put things that are obviously out of place back where they belong.

Deeper Sweeps
Undertaking the project of thoroughly cleaning your home can be overwhelming. The best way to declutter your space is to systematically go through your stuff item by item. Habits of tossing odds and ends into designated junk drawers simply won't do.

Tackle One Room at a Time
A good system is to assign yourself one room or area to focus on each month. The kitchen is a good starting place. The kitchen represents the heart of the home and also mirrors your heart chakra. Once your heart is cleared the project of cleaning the rest of your home will be much easier to tackle.

Assign yourself chores associated with the designated room at the beginning of the month. Here is an example of weekly chores for the kitchen:

Weekly Kitchen Chores
First Week: Dust and wash everything that is in sight (counter tops, kitchen table, small appliances, sink, stove top, etc.)
Second Week: Empty all the cupboards, toss out expired goods, reorganize your pantry goods, dishes and cookware. Get rid of items that are no longer useful.
Third Week: Mop floors, clean walls, and launder curtains.
Fourth Week: Clean oven, refrigerator, and light fixtures.

Roll up your sleeves, clean, clean, and clean some more. Your chakras will thank you!

Wellness Tip
Cookies
Did you know that the average American consumes about 11 pounds of cookies per year? One way to cut back may be to keep cookies in the freezer. Some people are less likely to overindulge in this treat if they are out of sight rather than in your pantry.

The Awen Celtic Symbol – The Three Rays Of Light.
On our Irish tour we see this symbol engraved into a stone building across from our Bray hotel. In the Celtic language, the word “Awen” means essence or inspiration. For pronunciation, it can either be said as “ah-when”, “ou-when”, or “ah-oo-en”. The Awen symbol is fairly simple in design. Consisting of three rays leading up to a path to a high point of three dots all why surrounded by three circles. There are multiple meanings for the Awen Celtic symbol. One interpretation is..

Recipe
Fresh Cherry Crisp
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: What says summer more than cherries?
This is a delicious cherry crisp made with fresh cherries instead of canned. It may take a little longer to make because you need to pit the cherries, but it is well worth it when you taste the finished product.

The nutritional benefits of cherries are pretty big, particularly when you consider their small size. Many of the health benefits of cherries are related to the natural chemical that gives them their color.

Anthocyanins give flowers, berries and other fruits the colors ranging from red to blue. Some of the best food sources of anthocyanins are red grapes, chokeberry, eggplant and, of course, cherries.
These pigments attract pollinators, act as a “sunscreen” and protect the plant from radicals formed by UV light, so they act as antioxidants. The antioxidant benefits are transferred to people when the fruits or vegetables are eaten.

Anthocyanins are also natural pain relievers and anti-inflammatories. They inhibit the production of COX-2 enzymes, as do over the counter and prescription pain relievers. Natural anti-inflammatories are believed to reduce the risk of many types of cancer. But, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.

Cherries contain melatonin, another natural pain reliever and COX-2 inhibitor. Melatonin also helps to regulate sleep cycles and has been sold as a natural sleep aid. Reduced levels of melatonin have been associated with heart disease and increased cancer rates in night workers. The human body naturally produces melatonin, but primarily in darkness.
Constant artificial lighting present in most homes and work places reduces the amount of melatonin that the body produces. So, one of the health benefits of cherries to modern day man has to do with replacing some of the melatonin that has been lost to artificial light, unhealthy work schedules and unnatural sleep patterns. And, there are more nutritional benefits of cherries.

Cherries, like most fruits, contain vitamin C. The proven and suspected health benefits of cherries and other vitamin C rich foods are too numerous to be covered in this recipe.
