Spring Cleaning Your Mind, Body, Heart, and Soul

A thorough spring cleaning entails more than simply throwing out tattered apparel and ruined furniture. It can also encompass getting rid of toxic relationships that no longer serve you.

Are you holding onto unhealthy connections that are detrimental to your emotional well being, for fear of being abandoned? Contemplate which liaisons require removal. Then summon up the courage to thrust them aside once and for all.

Many single people stay in damaging unions because they’d rather be with someone than alone.  However, even when you’re amorously involved, you can experience loneliness if you’re feeling unfulfilled, unappreciated, misunderstood, judged, condemned, demeaned, criticized.

Shaping up for spring typically calls for physical transformation. In addition, it’s an apropos season to consider casting off useless attitudes, behaviors, and thoughts.

Are you bored in your career? Has your intellect become stagnant? Are you emotionally stifled? Do you seek more stimulating activities? Would you like to boost your sexual pleasure and passion? Are you consumed in negativity and hopelessness?

What harmful habits do you want to dispense with? Where are you off balance? Do you stay incessantly busy, unable to sit still in silence? Are you searching for a deeper, more meaningful existence yet abhor the thought of traversing the inner recesses of your psyche?

Are you primarily concerned with taking care of cronies, uncomfortable with the notion of putting yourself first? Are you on dating websites 24/7 or completely given up on magnetizing your match? Do you compare your capabilities to cohorts, always appearing at the bottom?

Reject rigidity. Dispose of preconceived lists and visions of the ideal partner. What you believe is the worst case scenario may turn out to be the best. Remain open to each prospect, albeit you aren’t initially enamored and infatuated.

Before you’re ready to receive any gifts the universe has in store, an empty space is required. Similar to discarding old clothes and broken belongings to make way for the new, separating from unfavorable bonds frees you for exciting and fresh romantic possibilities.

Healing your broken heart will create room for rebirth and facilitate the attraction of a pristine association. Mourn the loss of past failures and welcome the beginnings of significant rapports, beyond your wildest imagination.

As you notice the blossoming flora around you, discern the red flags in your relationships, screaming out for attention. Nourish your internal garden with the unconditional love and acceptance you crave. Reaffirm that you deserve to be honored, cherished, and treasured.   

Don’t let your essence wilt and die by ignoring when you’re treated badly by those close to you. Forbid others from sucking your spirit dry. Even family members are obliged to earn the right to join your intimate, trusted circle. Go where you’re confident the affection is overflowing.

Treat your body to a makeover at the Oaks at Ojai Spa, only an hour away from Studio City and definitely worth the short serene drive up the coast! It’s the perfect path to a spring shift, i.e. commencing a healthy regimen, continuing a robust routine, or just some basic rest and relaxation.
