Cleaning meditation combines deep breathing with mindful attention as you go about tidying up. It’s a great way to help free your mind of worries while also getting something positive done. This is because it helps bring a sense of clarity and accomplishment that can encourage mental wellbeing. 

When practicing this technique, be sure to focus on your environment rather than yourself. Doing so allows you to observe the physical activity involved in cleaning with an impartial perspective. In that way, not only are you attending to the material needs of cleaning but also benefiting spiritually from the practice.

Step 1: Create a Calm Atmosphere

To get started with cleaning meditation, begin by lighting candles or playing soothing music if it helps alleviate your stress levels. It’s best if the environment is quiet and clutter-free since this will help foster an atmosphere conducive for relaxation. Try closing any windows or doors that may make noise and dimming any strong lights if needed. Finally, make sure there’s plenty of space for you to move around freely without bumping into furniture or clutter. 

Step 2: Bring Awareness Outward

Once everything has been set up for relaxation, start focusing outwardly on the room around you instead of inwardly on yourself. Try placing your hands in front of you on either side of where you are sitting as a reminder that they should stay within the boundaries of your home while cleaning—for example, away from electronics or other distractions. Then focus intently on everything in front of you—such as visible cobwebs or dirt—and notice how clean or cluttered it is before moving onto other parts of the room in a methodical pattern until they all have been given some undivided attention.

Notice any dust particles or cobwebs which may need attention but don’t overthink them—just observe them calmly before moving onto another area that requires attention within your home such as rearranging furniture or items left lying around carelessly.  

Think about those tasks one at a time instead of worrying about numerous things needing completion all at once; this will better enable one’s mind for finding relaxation through repetition and attentiveness toward each task completed individually first (before worrying about many different tasks).  

Step 3: Autopilot Method

Once comfortable doing this type of mindful thought process through simple observation alone (not overthinking), adopt what some people call ‘the autopilot method’--where said thinking gives place instead for body movement that individually resembles completing each task without having had noticed beforehand what all needs TO BE FULLY DONE be it clumped together in one conglomerated portion simply await completion by appropriately SORTING THROUGH what exactly belongs where first;

Take note: HERE begins true passage ever nearer towards not just ‘cleaning house’ but actually becoming TRANSFORMED Emotionally/spiritually altogether speaking due TO GROWTH WITHIN each efficiently tidy new task ahead -- gaining inner peace along its course --- going slower then faster according unto strength found from those energies coveted even further more until We would be grateful if you can start having your cleaning mediation right away. To be honest, it makes my life so much easier.
