Taking Care Of Your Rooms

Recommend this page to Google

There is an Belief that everyone is in a house of four rooms: A physical, a mental, an emotional and a spiritual. Most of us tend to live in one room most of the time, but unless we go into every room everyday, even if only to keep it aired, we are not complete. ~Rumer Godden

If you are allowing the dust to collect in one or more of your rooms, it is most likely affecting you more than you realize. We all know that our physical beings affect our emotional ones easily; when we are sick we get down or grumpy, when we feel great we are happy and confident. But in reverse, our emotions will affect our physical beings in ways we may not be able to realize.

Always feeling we are carrying the burdens of the world on our shoulders will most certainly make our shoulders hurt!

If we ignore our spiritual being, the collected dust makes our physical life less rewarding. Spiritual has little to do with religion, and everything to do with how we perceive our world. Faith will carry us through many a hard time.

And to you of little faith: like it or not, you profess faith in unseen energies every day. Each time you turn a switch and expect electricity to turn on the lights we have exhibited faith in an unseen power.

Our mental state affects all as well. If we are mentally exhausted, what else works in our lives? Is it time to visit your rooms and do some cleaning? There is time every day to do this if we just can see it.

Even something as small as greeting each day with a prayer of thanks, or thinking of the blessings of the day before bed visits the spiritual room.

Passing up on the junk food and eating an apple, or going to bed a little earlier cleans our physical room.

Expressing love, or allowing someone to give us a compliment and to accept it with grace opens the door to the emotional room.

And taking a few moments to just relax, or read a few pages in an uplifting book will open the curtains on the mental room.

It isn't hard. It just takes desire and intent. You will open your life up to health on every level. Aren't you worth it?
