Cleaning Ritual for Yule

 A nice ritual to prepare for Yule or anytime life is feeling a little to cluttered and disorgainized.

Go through your belongings. If you can't wear it, eat it or use it, get rid of it. As you sort, visualize any worn-out thought patterns, perceptions or notions that block your success being tossed into the discard pile. Place all your house clutter into a basket or box before you start cleaning. Put everything back in its place after the scrubbing is done. Grab the broom and use it to free ceilings and walls of dirt and cobwebs. As you sweep, sing the following chant to the tune of "Mary Had a Little Lamb":

As I sweep and sing this song
Useless stuff be now gone
Clear out now you cannot stay
Make room for a brighter day.
