Breath is the beginning of all life.
As you read, I warmly invite you to deeply inhale and fully exhale.
With each deep inhale, feel your blood cells filling with life-giving Oxygen.
With each full exhale, feel your body release all the stresses of your day.
Every living thing breathes. Animals, plants, fish, insects, humans. I’m sure there are more living creatures, but hey, you get the drift, right?
As we breathe, we feed the cells that give us life. As we bring Oxygen into our bodies, we ignite the body’s ability to pump blood through our veins, to digest the food we eat, to process the thoughts we think, to heal the bruises and tummy aches that ail us.
Inhaling fills our body with that which serves its greatest good.
On the contrary, exhaling not only expels Carbon Dioxide, it also releases that which no longer serves us.
What does breathing have to do with Organizing? Well, here it is. Maintaining a tidy home requires that we see our home as a living, breathing entity.
Remember that every living thing breathes, right? Every living thing is made of energy. Everything around us is made of energy that is vibrating at different frequencies.
Now, I want you to recognize that your house is also a living entity. The walls you live within, whether made from wood, plaster, steel or glass, are made with materials that have come from the Earth – a living thing.
