No one ever has to vacuum or dust picturesque natural settings, and yet they always feel fresher and cleaner than the cleanest home. Enclosed spaces on the other hand, while great for keeping us safe and warm, are sheltered from the perpetual cleaning/cleansing effect of the elements: earth, air, water, and fire. And so, when we clean our homes, we are in effect channeling the cleaning power of Mother Nature.
With that in mind, we might magically intensify this effect with any of the following affirmations. They can be chanted inwardly or aloud, either just before cleaning (to set the intention) and/or during cleaning (to hold the intention). One of the added benefits of this practice is that it makes cleaning more fun by infusing it with a powerful spiritual/shamanic element.
I am a rainstorm.
I am a rainstorm, and I cleanse and purify everything I touch.
I am sunlight.
I am sunlight, and I shine the light of purification on all that I see.
I am the wind.
I am the wind: I am a vitalizing and clarifying force.
(While the earth element is also purifying, because our homes are so static, for cleaning purposes it’s more ideal to channel elements with more movement and flow.)
