Today’s Inspiration To Brighten Your Day…

If you are turning your attention to some spring cleaning, feeling optimistic and enjoying warmer, sunnier days, why not clean up your emotions in the process and de-clutter all negative associations you might be holding onto…

I got to thinking the other day, about how we attach emotion to all the little things around us every day.  The experiences you remember and the feelings they stir, for example, when you listen to music, are widely accepted.  However, have you ever noticed the emotion you may be attaching to all manner of objects in the home, at the office or even in the car or in the places you visit?


For me personally, I hadn’t fully taken on board until recently, how much negative emotion I had attached to a simple bottle of perfume.  It was a gift to me a couple of years ago but the way it was given, was disappointing.  I had anchored a sad feeling to the perfume and every time I used it, for a few moments, I felt sad again.  I never really took the time to acknowledge this to myself and it was only when the perfume finished that I realised I was glad it was gone.  I took a moment to go over the memory that this bottle of perfume stirred and I understood how those moments of sadness were entwined in the hurtful words I had absorbed.

So if you are feeling a bit down at the moment, take a good look around you in your environment.  Allow yourself to notice those little things like jewellery, ornaments, certain clothes, toiletries, and even food in your cupboard, which, perhaps, you are attaching negative feelings to.  Walk around your home environment and pick up different items – ask yourself “What does this remind me of?”  And then, “How do I feel?” If it’s negative, go pack them away, give them away or toss them out.

If you want to feel happier and lighter within yourself, it makes sense to clear out all the negative energy of your environment.

Instead, choose to notice all the good things which link to happy times and those times when you felt loved.  When you feel down, look at those things, handle them and you will absorb a more positive energy which means you will think and feel differently – and feel better!

Until next time

With love and light x
