As is fairly evident by the number of times I’ve brought it up in the past few weeks, my new apartment arrangement is pretty much the most exciting thing going on in my life lately. After over seven years of living here, I’m really enjoying the new uses of my little space. I’ve also been using the room swap as an impetus to declutter and reorganize. And once I’m done with that, I have a smudge stick ready and waiting to perform a little energetic clearing as well. This will be my maiden smudging but the timing feels right. If you’re not familiar with smudging, there’s a nice explanation of it here. Or to say it otherwise:
…keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away.
