Wandering the Halls of My Mind

Warning: going deep here. Today’s illness had less to do with the dizziness and fatigue and more to do with vacating my present space to do some mind cleaning. I virtually and mentallu toured the halls of my mind and found clutter in its halls and rooms. I walked through and threw out the clutter. I let go of things held onto that are no longer relevant to the present or future. I forgave what needed forgiveness. I removed leftover junk from the past. I am a very visual person, and visualization is a very powerful too, often as real to me as real life. So visualizing this cleaning process has enormous value and the inviting God’s Spirit to dwell there in the newly clean house. Incredible and powerful exercise. Maybe that helps someone or you, friend. Love you! ❤

Cleaning Mom’s House

We have a system, my mom and I, where she teaches piano lessons (something she has done for 40 years or more) and I clean her house in exchange. This gives me an excuse to clean for her (for she cannot do it herself anymore) while maintaining her strong independence and dignity. I could teach the kids myself but this works and gives the kids more time with their Grandma. Sometimes we have to be more creative with our helping but it is worth a little extra effort and creativity to allow her to feel useful and important and independent. This is so important when taking care of another human being, especially a parent you wish to show respect and honor to. ❤
