There is nothing more depressing than waking up to a dirty kitchen first thing in the morning. Dirty dishes that have been in the sink for the last few days have started to smell. Onion skins and crumbs crackle as you step on the floor. Burners on the stove are so caked with grease that it takes an industrial strength degreaser from The Home Depot to clean them off. And, that spill in the oven from the Christmas turkey is still there, now a blackened plaque. All of this is a sign of stagnant energy. But this stagnant energy is not just in the kitchen, it is a direct reflection of what's going on within you.
Clear the Stagnant Energy
To have a clear mind, body and spirit, you must have a clean-living space. Professional cleaner and co-founder of Zenith Cleaners, Tolulope “Tolu” Ilesanmi, has created a highly successful international cleaning business by using the task of cleaning as metaphor. He teaches that all cleaning is internal. When we declutter a space, the real decluttering occurs inside ourselves. Mr. Ilesanmi has taught his concept of cleaning to board members and corporate executives in business coaching sessions. Cleaning regularly, he believes, is training for dealing with the dirt and mess of life that we normally do not want to touch.
Clean your Kitchen - Clean your Soul!
And maybe as a reward for your hard work… celebrate by going out to eat and let someone else worry about the dishes for one night!
