There was a time when I was less than thrilled with the mundane chores that were necessary when seeing clients or offering a workshop. I used to think that the cleaning and preparation was something to be endured before I could get to the 'fun' part of working with Sacred concepts and Healing frequencies and energies.
Now I know that everything I do to prepare for a client or group is Sacred. The cleaning, doing laundry, printing, organizing and planning is every bit as important as the actual event. It sets the stage and prepares me for what is about to unfold.
What used to be 'mindless' chores has become loving meditations. I know that when I am cleaning the washroom for the third time in any given day that my client will have the benefit of utilizing a clean space. When my home is aired out frequently it offers those who come here with a space where they won't be bothered by unpleasant smells. When my crystals are dust free they better share their beauty and energies. And I know that my doing a lot of laundry allows clients to lie on a clean surface prepared just for them.
I also better understand the meaning of, "Before enlightenment.... chop wood, carry water."
