Our homes should ideally be our sanctuaries. Someplace we can relax and feel comfortable. With all the usual stresses of everyday life, having a space to feel tranquil and at peace adds so much value to our lives.
Having your home and all that's in it brimming with positive energy, love and peace can only be a good thing.
Here are some simple tips on how you can easily add positive energy and good vibes to your home.
Liven up your space with plants, so simple! Plants take CO2 and toxins out of the 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.
Aesthetically, plants enhance the feeling of warmth and coziness in your home, but it doesn't stop there. Plants will continuously clear the air and replenish the oxygen in your home.
It's easy to choose plants that don't require much maintenance because, let's face it, who needs extra work.
Plants will improve any room in your home, bringing a feel 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.
Letting fresh air into your home will get rid of air pollution and improve air quality. Allowing fresh air to move through your home also gets the energy flowing and will shift any stagnant energy.
Hearing sounds of nature is beneficial to lifting our moods. If possible, open your windows every day to hear the soothing sounds of nature for a natural pick-me-up.
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. Being surrounded by clutter suppresses your brain's ability to process and think clearly.
Start one room at a time, bag up anything you no longer use or need. Set it aside for donation. If damaged or broken, bin it!
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. Soothing plant materials 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 well-being 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.
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. Not saying silence is a bad thing, but music is a powerful aid if you feel you need a little lift. Music can make you feel happy and energized.
Coming home from work burnt out and feeling stressed, uplifting vibes is what you need. So crank up those happy tunes and lift up 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 carpets, sprinkle a little salt over them. Let it sit for an hour or so, then vacuum.
Another trick 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. It is not advisable to place a mirror directly opposite your front door 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, will not only make them sparkle, but you are also increasing and attracting more positive energy your way.
A Pop Of Color
One of the easiest things you can do to make any space feel brighter and energized immediately is to add a pop of color. A few bright cushions to throw on the sofa. Or a bright quilt on your bed for an immediate boost.
Clinically proven color can influence your moods. Lively colors such as greens and yellows have an instant effect on your mood and will lift the energy of your space.
Not only are crystals pretty to look at, but they also promote positivity and can help raise your vibrations.
Crystals are a natural way to remove negative energy while restoring balance to any of your mental or spiritual unrest.
Place crystals all over your home to bring peace and balance to any space. Each crystal has its own unique vibrations, so check out which one would benefit you the most.
