Creating a sanctuary in your home for your own happiness.
I have always been a big believer in making our home a place that is relaxing, comforting and a sanctuary. A few things that you can do to make your home and oasis is: first and foremost decorating your personal space to your liking. If you are surrounded by objects you don’t like or resonate and simple don’t like, it has an affect on your psyche. So it is very important to be surrounded by things you love and enjoy. This is just one simple thing you can do.
It also helps to be organized and comfortable in their home because it has a very calming effect on you and everyone that comes into your home. I noticed that when things are a little unorganized even in my office I tend to feel out of alignment. I know that this can be difficult when you have younger children and animals in your home, but I feel that it’s really important.
Soft lighting and colors that are soothing like purples, greens and blues can also make your home feel warm. Aromatherapy is another way of bringing a calm into your home with lavender and other scents that make you feel tranquil. Music with a rhythm that stays constant instead of something that jumps all over the place also helps. Other peaceful sounds like chimes and fountains also create a serene environment.
Be aware of the energy that your furniture could possibly be holding as well. Sometimes when furniture is used it may be bringing in the energy from past owners and you might need to smudge it or clear it any other way that you can. I think smudging your home regularly and burning incense is also a way of making your home feel more like a sanctuary.
Whatever it is that you do to feel good in your home is important, but the most important thing to remember is to keep your mind calm and create a sanctuary inside yourself as well.
