On this wonderful transition called The Journey of Love, a few practices are important to understand and respect. By now if you have been reading my blogs you know that energy makes up everything and can be thought of as God. Everything vibrates at a certain frequency which is inherent within its structure. So what is cleanliness? How can anything be dirty in God’s world?
First of all, this is not God’s world! It is man-made; every blade of grass, every animal and every person is created by the ego of man, as described in A Course in Miracles (ACIM). It is worth the effort to figure out what I am speaking of, but it is too complex to explain in a few paragraphs, ACIM is a yearlong course. Just know that your “reality” is created by your ego mind and each person see’s their own version of the same thing. Earth is often considered dirt, and the state of being dirty is any substance, liquid, or semi-solid that is located where it is not wanted. Being dirty changes the overall appearance of the object it (solid, liquid, or vapor) rides on.
Dirty on a basic level is a decrease in energetic frequency which then attracts particulate matter similar to its energy. This usually occurs over time (entropy), unless energy is being expended to clean or increase the areas’ energy vibrations. If you ask three people if something is dirty, you will get three different answers, because the state of being dirty is subjective. Dirty is simply a lower vibration.
Take your body for instance, washing it removes any foreign materials and thus raises the bodies overall vibration to a more natural state. The soil can come from the environment or from within (thoughts taking form – sweat, mucus, tears just to name a few). So to wash anything raises its vibrational signature to a more natural state or close to original state. The original state is unattainable in this world because of the many energetic influences being exerted on all matter. Once matter is changed, it cannot be changed back, only taken to a similar state. Think of this at the molecular level, so while it may appear good as new, it has been changed.
Looking at dirty from the spiritual point of view, it is impure, soiled, tainted, unclean, and viewed as sinful. Thus anything in this world could be considered impure or sinful. Not that purity does not exist, for it certainly does, however it is not of this world. Ever since Eve ate the apple and Adam & Eve where thrown out of the Garden of Eden, this world has been impure or sinful. Of course this is a perspective which was taught long ago by religious leaders to explain the world they saw around them.
Energetically speaking the 3d dimension, where we all live, is a dense world made up of matter at a low vibrational frequency. As energy vibration increases, cleanliness becomes a natural state. If the body can be vibrated at sufficient frequencies it too will move to attain a state that cannot be dirty or sick.
Metaphorically speaking cleaning is a kin to forgiveness, because forgiveness is how one raise’s above sin. Keeping your body and your environment clean is thus a conscious act of forgiveness!
Cleaning is also a way to increase the vibration of anything, your body, house, yard, etc. Living in an energetically vibrant environment is crucial to higher living. But don’t take my word for it, just notice the next time you are in a “dirty” place and see how the space feels. Energized? Depressed? The same goes for a place that is immaculately clean, or someplace brand new/never used.
The secret to moving to higher states of existence comes in creating an energized space by keeping it clean. As you grow, you will find yourself in places that are ever more energetic, clean, and beautiful.
Ps. Cleanliness is vital in creating a Love Based Economy, because it is a higher state of energy vibration. Try keeping your space clean and see if your life changes for the better.
