My home was a rainbow house when I first moved in because I was working on all Chakras simultaneously.
As I dug deeper into self-actualisation, my home became more neutral and the canvas became my healing landscape. I really believe that your home reflects your ‘ Human’ condition at it’s level of evolution. What do you mean Marilyn?
Well, your home reflects your mental and emotional situation..
We have all seen the TV series Horders and also the new show by Marie Kondo reiterates this point change your home through clearing clutter then you change your life. Changing your decor, colour, or adding an accent wall or cushions can transform any space.so, also the use of candles, incense and crystals can make a home feel calm and tranquil . I have listed 5 tools you can use consciously to change your environment to support yourself.
1 . Space clearing / Clutter Clearing
Self explanatory, but clearing old clothes, magazines or books creates space for new things to come into your life. Holding onto outdated clothes or shoes can create a sense of heaviness. Check out Marie Kondo’s show on Youtube or Netflix.
2. Air Purifiers
Fresh air by opening our windows, by opening our windows we are letting go of the energy we processed the day or night before. Fresh air creates more fluidity in your home this is really important if you are suffering from Depression and anxiety.
Air purifiers are also great for allergy sufferers, damp environments as well as dust mites in rooms
Other natural purifiers
Sage. Palo Santo or Sweetgrass - Ok I am not rewriting the wheel as this is very basic, but Sage is good to use very quickly to purify a space, and these scents are very good for clearing the atmosphere.
Essential Oils - Lavender / Frankincense / Juniper - Does what Sage et al does
Rose/ Ylang Ylang/ Jasmine - To create that mood for romance or self-love.
Lemongrass / Peppermint- To stimulate that mind for study, conversation or concentration.
Artwork that reflects the things your love or the mood you want to capture is an affirmation of who you are, so choosing artwork will create an atmosphere of calm or positivity.
4. An altar
Please check my post on Altars creating a space for you to meditate, honour your family or ancestor.
An altar is like a portal between you and spirit and all your wishes can be placed on your altar. You can have one in every room.
5. Natural Products
Limiting the use of plastic in your home reduces environmental waste and is also more beneficial for your health as plastic can leech harmful chemicals . Wooden bowls, paper straws and china cups also add to the clean healing element to your home. Save old jars and bottles for storage and to hold fruit juices and smoothies.
Try to have more natural fibres where possible and replace synthetic items with more natural materials slowly as this can be expensive to do at once. I am slowly replacing some of my soft furnishings with more natural products where possible.
For cleaning try using essential oils, vinegar and soda crystals to have a cost effective cleaning product (please check my future posts on Natural cleaning products).
