Our homes need to be our sanctuaries. A place we can relax and feel comfortable, truly at peace. Everyday life is so stressful, especially currently, being able to have a respite is one of the most important things.
Creating a space that is brimming with positive energy, love, and peace can only be a good thing. The impacts it can have on you go far beyond the four walls of your home. Here are some simple tips on how you can add positive energy and good vibes to your home easily.
Not only are plants fun to look at but they even clean your air!
They are a fantastic source of life and positive energy. Besides taking away the negative toxins, they add moisture to your environment, bringing positive energy into the home.
Plants enhance the feeling of warmth and coziness in your home, but they also do so much more than that. They give you something to nurture and pouring love into something usually makes you love yourself more as well.
In the beginning, it’s easier to choose plants that don’t require much work. Because let’s face it, who needs extra work. But be careful because plants can be a slippery obsessive slope. I should know.
Plants can improve any room in your home, bringing that comforting feeling of nature indoors. So why not place a plant in each room, or even just in the main living areas. You might be surprised by the feel and difference one plant can make to a room.
Open Your Windows
Opening your windows as often as you can and let the sounds of nature flow through your home. Not only is it good for you spiritually but physically as well. Airing out the pollution in your home improves overall air quality. Allowing fresh air to move through your home also gets the energy flowing and will shift any stagnant energy. If you live close enough to nature hearing the sounds drifting through your home can be amazingly peaceful as well.
We live in a time where everyone thinks they need to have it all. But science says all that extra stuff cluttering up your life is adding to your stress level. If you want a clutter-free mind, de-clutter your space. Princeton researchers published an article in the Journal of Neuroscience in 2011 that found in a cluttered visual environment, multiple objects compete for your attention, leading to poor focus. Go one room at a time bagging up anything you no longer use or need. Set it aside for donation. If damaged or broken, straight to the trash.
Don’t try and talk yourself out of it and convince yourself that you might use it again. Be brutal where possible and remove anything you don’t need or anything that doesn’t bring you joy.
Everything is energy; everything in your home holds certain energy. Once you start, you will be amazed at how much unnecessary stuff we accumulate and hold onto over the years. But more so, you will be surprised how much lighter you feel after you’ve had a big clear out.
Essential oils are another simple yet exceptional way to increase the positive energy in any space. Pure oils are made from plant matter which can help alter a person’s mood, mind, and mental state.
Certain oils are great for removing stress; some are great to help clear your mind, while others can help uplift you and so forth.
For example, lemon or peppermint are commonly used to cleanse and purify negative thoughts. While lavender is great to help soothe and calm you by promoting a sense of wellbeing along with reducing stress. Orange is good for helping sustain a positive mood while also inspiring creativity.
Himalayan Salt Lamps
Himalayan salt lamps have grown in popularity over the last number of years. They are scientifically proven to enhance the surrounding air quality. Just always make sure you’re getting the real deal when you buy them. There are fakes out there.
When the salt lamp is gently heated with a low watt bulb, it releases negative ions. These ions combat the positive ions in our environment caused by pollution, electronic devices, dust, and animal fur. Thereby improving the air quality in your home.
Along with this, the salt lamp’s ambient glow gives you a warm, comforting feeling of peace and calm whilst contributing to your well-being.
Many underestimate the power of music and its ability to lift our spirits. Music is a powerful aid if you feel you need a little lift. Music can make you feel happy and energized. They can even get you up and dancing which is always the energy you need.
Coming home from work burnt out and feeling stressed, uplifting vibes is what you need. So crank up those happy tunes and lift your mood.
Clean Floors With Salt And Water
Cleaning your floors with a mixture of salt and water is an excellent way to eliminate any negative energy in your home. While simultaneously helping the positive energy to flow.
If you have a carpet, sprinkle a little salt over it. Let it sit for an hour or so, then vacuum. Another trick in using salt to attract positive energy to your home, put some in containers, and place in different corners of your home. Changing this salt every 2 months is recommended.
Mirrors And Cleaning
Mirrors are great for helping energy flow, especially in small spaces. You should never place a mirror directly opposite your front door because as you enter as the energy bounces. It is much better to place it on a wall parallel to the front door.
If you have a mirror in your dining room, try placing a fruit bowl, for example, opposite it. This reflects the fruit bowl, magnifying the energy of abundance.
The vinegar attracts positive energy. So cleaning your mirrors with vinegar is a good idea. Cleaning your mirrors, or indeed your windows, not only will they sparkle, but you are also increasing and attracting more positive energy your way.
Not only are crystals pretty to look at, but they also promote positivity and can help you meditate and raise your vibrations.
