When it comes to our homes, I would like to think that we all manage to keep the place clean and tidy. More so than others but that would be down to you and what you are comfortable with. Many of us won’t leave dirt and grime to add up. We will regularly clean our home. The great thing about physical dirt is you can see it. You know it’s there and then you will get cracking on clearing it up. The energy in your home is something completely different. We can often refer to good and bad energy but can’t see it. We can feel it. It can affect us in so many ways. From the way we do things; how we feel emotionally. To how we may handle a particular situation. Ideally, you would want your home to feel like a positive place. Some where that makes you feel good and happy from the inside out. This can have a lot to do with the energy levels in your home, and whether there is more bad than good energy lingering in your rooms. So I thought I would share with you nine ways to make your home feel more charged up and energized.
De-clutter and cut down on the technology
One way to make your home feel more energized is to de-clutter. Removing a build up of things we know longer have any use for can be quite fulfilling. There is a common term which says “messy house, messy mind” and that has a lot to do with the energy that it dispels. So Take some time to look round your home and have a good clear out.
Bad energy can also gather because of the sheer amount of technology we have in our homes these days. TV’s, computers, laptops, games consoles. That is just the beginning. While it is difficult to rid yourself of those things fully. Our lives tend to work around technology these days. You may be able to clear certain rooms of it. This means you could create a new space which is a more relaxing environment to sit in.
Add salt to the floor before you sweep or vacuum
Salt has long been known as a substance that can absorb bad energy. So if you feel like your home needs a cleanse, which you should often do, then sprinkle sea salt on the floor is a good way to do it. Make sure it reaches the corners and get’s under the furniture. Leave it to settle for a few hours and then sweep or vacuum everything up. Make sure you empty the collected salt in a bin outside to rid your home of the bad energy vibes.
Switch on A Himalayan salt lamp
You could take the salt thing to a whole new level and get yourself a Himalayan salt lamp. You may wonder what is a Himalayan salt lamp and how can it help? It is a softly lit salt lamp that is a natural source of clean, fresh air. It is great at cleansing your home. They also attract water. So they have an incredible ability to remove dust, pollen and other impurities from the air. They give off something called negative ions. Which means they increase energy levels and diffuse any other energies within your room.
Play uplifting music
Something so simple can have a huge effect on how your home feels. Playing uplifting music as loud as you can is one of them. It’s not just about what you play. The loud music gives off vibrations in your home that will penetrate the walls and windows. It’s always best to keep the music choice a positive one. So the lyrics are important to.
Sing as loud as you can
Singing is a great way to add some positive energy to your home. You don’t need to be fantastic at it because it will only be for you. But singing positive song lyrics can have just the effect you want on the energy levels in your home.
Think about the feng shui in your room
Feng Shui is a chinese system of laws that work out the best places to put things. This is down to the spacial orientation and arrangement about the flow of energy it creates. Some arrangements will create a bad flow while others create a good one. There are simple guides online to get you started if you are unsure of how to work it out.
Open up doors and windows
This may seem like an obvious way, but you will be surprised by how many people forget to do this. It’s such a simple yet effective way of cleansing and re-energizing your home is let the natural air in and flow through.
Add plants to your home
Plants, as you probably know, are one of our biggest sources of oxygen. So it would seem a positive choice to add more to your home. What you may not know is that they use carbon-dioxide as their energy source. Meaning they will cleanse the room of our waste. They also happen to absorb negative energy, which is great for keeping the levels positive in your home. It would be a good idea to let your houseplants out in the garden every once in a while and is open to natural rain water. Bringing them back in re-charges them ready to carry on with their job. They look fantastic but have such a great purpose as well.
Finally, the last thing you could consider would be the use of aromatherapy. Scents like Lavender, Peppermint, Sage and Cedar would be great choices to begin with. You could use candles, reed diffusers or even the plugin variety if that is better. They can instantly uplift how you feel as well as your home.
I hope this guide helps you to cleanse and re-energize your home. It’s always good to make sure you have a flow of positive energy throughout your home. It’s good for you on the inside and the out.
