If you're feeling inspired by the changing seasons, consider doing a spiritual spring cleaning ritual this year. Incorporating spirituality into spring cleaning can allow you to shift your mindset and make room for positive energy, empowering you to celebrate a season of renewal and rebirth.

What Is the Spiritual Practice of Spring Cleaning?

Whether you're a self-confessed neat freak or can't remember the last time you mopped a floor, you probably get the idea of traditional spring cleaning. It's a time to clean, organize, and declutter your home as you say goodbye to winter and welcome spring.

Holistic spring cleaning goes a bit further by zeroing in on not only your physical space but also your mental and emotional energy. Participating in a spiritual spring cleaning ritual can help you cleanse your soul and embrace a new season with focus and intention. Follow these tips for some holistic approaches to spring cleaning.

Set Your Intentions

Begin by setting your intentions for a holistic spring cleaning ritual. Being specific about your intentions during spring cleaning can provide clarity on what you hope to gain. It's helpful to jot down your intentions in a journal as you get ready to start. Here are some questions you can use for guidance:

  • What feels heavy in your life right now? Maybe you feel weighed down by a toxic relationship or are unhappy with your current job. Whatever feels heavy right now, write it down in your journal.
  • What changes can you make to feel lighter? As you think about what's weighing you down, consider some positive changes you can make to feel lighter and more joyful. These don't have to be big changes — for example, you may decide to get a massage or have a coffee date with a friend.
  • What does a fresh start look like for you? Spiritual spring cleaning lets you focus on decluttering the physical, mental, and emotional baggage you may be carrying. Imagine what a fresh start looks like, and use this inspiration to guide your intentions.

Cleanse Your Home

Your physical space can influence your mood, attitude, and mindset. Take some time to perform an energetic home cleansing for spiritual growth. Start by opening the windows to breathe in the crisp, fresh spring air. As you move through each room, use essential oils or herbs to center the energy on your intentions. For example, add a few drops of lavender to your cleaning water for a calming effect, or use jasmine to promote inner peace and harmony.

Smudging can be another great way of creating a sacred space through spring cleaning. A smudge stick with sage, cedar, or other aromatic plants can help you cleanse your home's energy, allowing you to make space for a fresh start. Move through your home with the smudge stick and focus on your intentions for spiritual cleansing. You might even perform a chant or mantra in each room, such as, "I'm cleansing old energy and making way for new beginnings."

Declutter Your Space

Clutter can block the fresh, positive energy you want to bring into your life. Spend some time decluttering the spaces in your home. Go through each room and identify items you no longer need or use. If you're stuck about whether to keep something, take a tip from organizing queen Marie Kondo and ask yourself whether it brings you joy. If it doesn't, get rid of it to make space for more happiness. Donate what you can (after all, someone else might get joy from your "Gilmore Girls" boxed DVD sets), and toss the rest.

Simplify Digital Clutter

Does the thought of checking your email and seeing 1,457 new messages instantly stress you out? Yeah, we thought so. Just like physical clutter, digital clutter can make you feel anxious and overwhelmed. As part of your spiritual spring cleaning, take some time to simplify your electronic footprint. Here are some ideas to help you conquer that computerized clutter:

  • Go through your email and unsubscribe from old newsletters.
  • Organize all the files on your desktop into folders.
  • Back up the files on your computer if it's been a while.
  • Uninstall old software or programs.
  • Delete phone apps you don't use anymore (and cancel paid app subscriptions).
  • Delete old pics and organize the rest into albums.
  • Look through your social media and unfollow (or unfriend) anyone who no longer brings you joy.

Practice Mindfulness

Once you've decluttered your physical and digital spaces, you can focus on tidying up your mental and emotional clutter. Mindfulness is an essential part of your holistic spring cleaning ritual. This practice can ground you in the present moment, providing a way to quiet your mind. You can give yourself space to reset and recharge through mindfulness and meditation.

If you're feeling mentally or emotionally drained, try a cord-cutting meditation to re-energize your mind, body, and spirit. As you meditate, imagine negative energy leaving your body and drawing away. Once it's outside of you, see yourself cutting the cord, disconnecting yourself from the energy that weighs you down.

Celebrate With Some Fun or Relaxation

If you've made it this far, congratulations! You've done a lot of work to weed out your physical, mental, and emotional clutter. Now it's time to have some fun. To wrap up your spiritual spring cleaning ritual, do something that makes you happy. Blast some Beyoncé and have a dance party in your kitchen. Take yourself on a date to your favorite restaurant. Light your best candle and treat yourself to a bubble bath. Whatever you do, give yourself permission to relax and be happy. You're all set for the next season of your life.

Do you have some emotional or mental clutter you can't let go of? Don't let this energy hold you back from embracing the oncoming spring season. Schedule a reading with an intuitive PathForward Psychic Advisor who can guide you on other ways to cleanse your spirit and embrace a new beginning.
