The Living Force
I can sooo relate to cleaning frenzies. Whenever I go into these 'modes', my family knows to steer clear of questions until the house is spit spot cleaned and I am again approachable for conversation and dealing with extra issues.aleana said:sgspencer said:That's funny, I don't know if it is the walking or the vacuum cleaning...vacuum cleaning has always been a calming experience for me, the concept of cleaning seemed to seep into my unconscious and its possible that I associated physical cleaning with mental cleaning also.
That’s interesting. I also find that when I am wrestling with some issue, I begin to clean. I move around a lot and in a real frenzy can have the entire place turned inside out before putting all back together. Sometimes I include moving the furniture as part of this. I have never understood why, but when I am finished, I feel much more grounded and calmer. My home also just feels better - it is as if the energy has completely shifted. This works particularly well if I have been in an unpleasant mood because it really cleanses everything - including my mood!
