A house with four rooms

“There is an Indian proverb or axiom that says that everyone is a house with 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 every day, even if only to keep it aired, we are not a complete person.”     Rumer Godden

Because our physical space is the one we’re most aware of, we are  most conscious of the clutter in that room.

Take time this week to peek into the other rooms and see if you can do a bit of decluttering in them.

Is your mental room stuffed with To Do’s you forget to do?
Write them down.
Is your emotional room cluttered with past hurts, grievances, anger or fears?  
See if you could do a bit of forgiving, of others and most importantly-of  yourself.
Does your spiritual space have ideas laying about that no longer resonate with who you are now? Are there voices and stories that someone gave  a younger you that now weigh heavy on your heart?
Spend a few moments in silent reflection, connect to Spirit-however you define that experience.


Not all the ‘stuff’ is our lives is visible.
Do a little house tour and take the time to declutter each of the rooms.
Open up to all that’s possible and relax your spacious new home.
