Your there every day, you sleep there probably every night, it's where you kick your feet up and where you share family meals together. Yes, I am talking about your home, my home, any ones home for that matter. I find that my Jedi practice includes keeping up with the home; that's right! I don't look at cleaning up as I used too now I look at cleaning as a spiritual cleaning that creates balance and harmony within the walls of this home. Keeping up with your home not only looks nice but it feels good and it affects not only your mood but other family members as well as guests within your home. Have you ever been to someone's house and they weren't so good of housekeepers? I'm sure you have; do you remember the feelings that you got whenever you were in their homes? I know I do. I felt dirty! It's time we redefine what it means to clean the home, it's time we wield the power of the cleaning Force to ensure that we bring harmony into our homes. I know when we have a guest, they always comment on how cozy and welcoming our home is. Can you say the same? If your house is in chaos bring it into order. and let the Force flow through you to get the job done. Don't look at cleaning as a hassle; if you keep up with it regularly you will find that your cleaning time is actually quite short and there is less to do, through on some of your favorite music, burn some incense, make cleaning a ritual. As a Jedi, I recognize the need to have a designated sacred space in my home, but I also recognize the need to make my entire home a sacred space not just for me but for my loved ones and our guests. Remember the old saying: Cleanliness is next to Godliness. May the Force be with you always!
