I found this great article on About.com that shows which rooms in your home are connected to your chakras. I found this all very interesting. We’ve all known the kitchen is the heart of the house, this article takes it one step further.

A person does not have to look beyond his
own home environment to discover which chakra centers may be problematic or
blocked. Hoarders are especially at risk of a complete chakra system shutdown.
Taking a tour of your living space will help give you clues as to which of your
chakras need attention.
Chakra blockages are often mirrored by the state of disarray in the various
rooms in your home. A messy or disorganized kitchen could reflect a heart chakra imbalance.
A cluttered den or home office may indicate mental confusion or
lack of focus. A dusty or unorganized master bedroom can affect your love
relationship negatively. Grimy window panes may mimic clouded third eye
perceptions. An overstuffed attic or dirty rain gutters may be mirroring a
blocked crown chakra.
Rooms and living spaces that typically represent the major chakras are:
- Crown Chakra: Attic, Roof, Rain Gutters
- Brow Chakra: Den, Home Office, Windows
- Throat Chakra: Living Room, Family Room
- Heart Chakra: Kitchen, Dining Areas
- Solar Plexus Chakra: Bathrooms, Personal Spaces
- Sacral Chakra: Master Bedroom
- Root Chakra: Basement, Crawl Spaces
- Aura: Porches, Decks, Landscaping, Garages
Cleaning and Organizing
In order to benefit from clearing your chakra system
as well as getting your home clean and uncluttered it is key that you
participate in the house cleaning. Of course, you can certainly ask family
members who are living under the same roof with you to roll up their sleeves
and help out. All members of a household play some role in creating the messes,
so everyone will benefit by sharing in the clean up. Children should be
responsible for cleaning and organizing their own bedrooms. How much you help
or supervise the children cleaning will depend on their ages. A teenager should
be able to tackle clearing a bedroom with very little or no assistance.
Routine Surface Sweeps
A quick sweep of obvious clutter will help
you feel better temporarily, but the real test will be instilling the habit of
keeping order in the future. A surface sweep is a very good habit for daily
upkeep or weekly cleaning. A surface sweep is when you will walk through each
room of your home and put things that are obviously out of place back where
Undertaking the project of thoroughly
cleaning your home can be overwhelming. The best way to declutter your space is
to systematically go through your stuff item by item. Habits of tossing odds
and ends into designated junk drawers simply won’t do.
Tackle One Room at a Time
A good system is to assign yourself one
room or area to focus on each month. The kitchen is a good starting place. The
kitchen represents the heart of the home and also mirrors your heart chakra.
Once your heart is cleared the project of cleaning the rest of your home will
be much easier to tackle.
Assign yourself chores associated with the designated room at the beginning of
the month. Here is an example of weekly chores for the kitchen:
Weekly Kitchen Chores
First Week: Dust
and wash everything that is in sight (counter tops, kitchen table, small
appliances, sink, stove top, etc.)
Second Week: Empty all the cupboards, toss out expired goods, reorganize your pantry goods,
dishes and cookware. Get rid of items that are no longer useful.
Third Week: Mop floors, clean walls, and launder curtains.
Fourth Week: Clean oven, refrigerator and light fixtures.
Roll up your sleeves, clean, clean, and clean some more. Your chakras will
