I just went through a big move recently. Like this past weekend recently. The short version of that story is: started Ph.D. program, got very sick, could not keep up with program, was diagnosed with a relatively rare immune system disorder - because that's precisely my luck, it can't be anything common and easily fixable - am no longer in Ph.D. program because it's pointless for me to be there until my health is under control. But because I was no longer a student nor was I employed by the university any longer, I ended up moving back home, seven hours from where I had been living. (With my parents for the moment until I find a long-term job and an apartment. Hopefully I will be on my own sooner rather than later, just me and the cats again. I love my family, but I will pull out all my hair if I'm here too long.) So my question to you guys is, is there anything you do when you go through a big move? Or even a little move? Basically, do you have a specific ritual or routine you do upon inhabiting a new space? Usually I smudge the north, south, east, and west corners of whatever space that happens to be. I may spend some time meditating and just feeling the place out to see what it needs. I also have a pair of statues (they're sort of effigies of guardian spirits that were gifted to me) I keep as close to the door as possible and put up as soon as I possibly can upon arriving. Anybody else do something similar? Something different? Nothing at all? What are your routines for that?
