Have you ever entered a home that seemed to emanate positivity, happy and relaxed energy? Clearing the energy in your space, be it your home or office, effects your personal life. This is why it is so important to reflect on your thoughts, feelings, and beliefs prior to your clearing.
Whatever the situation, you can always work on filling your home with an abundance of positive energy. This can help to -
Boost creativity and inspiration
Ease disagreeable roommates or family members
Remove negative energy or entities
Clear out stagnant or stuffy energy
Make your home feel safe and secure
Promote harmonious relationships
Bring more grounding and positive energy to your day
After a clearing, you may find yourself more open to changes you were previously resisting or filled with new ideas and inspirations.
Here are ideas of how to bring some of those good vibes into your home.
1. Clear Clutter
Creating space in your home brings in a flow of positive, inspiring and creative energy. Start by clearing your home of all the things you no longer need or use. This even includes those cupboards, closets or basements that are crammed with things that are often forgotten.
A general rule to follow is that if you haven’t used it in a year or it doesn’t bring you joy, it’s probably time to let it go.
2. Burn Sage
Throughout history people from many cultures have burned white sage to enhance positive energy, cleanse ones living space and invite protection. It's Latin name salvia -- also means "to heal." Wave the smoke into all corners, across doorways and into shadow spaces. To maintain the atmosphere of ritual, keep repeating the incantation in your mind as you diffuse the smoke. Once the space is cleared, allow the sage bundle to either burn out or gently press it out in your heat-proof shell or container.
3. Turn on a Himalayan Salt Lamp
Salt lamps attract humidity and when heated with an incandescent bulb, it accelerates evaporation, which produces negative ions which combats air pollutants. I know - it's all science-y, but basically, they're really good for you. And, if that's not enough, the light produced by the lamps is said to increase relaxation, and decrease stress.
Also open the windows, allow fresh air to fill your home for at least five minutes each day. Let the wind naturally exchange air that has been cooped up with some fresh and vibrant, oxygen filled breeze. Even during winter months this should be done!
If air quality is an issue where you live, consider also investing in an air purifier or house plants.
4. Singing Bowls or Bells
Sound is a powerful healer and can help to harmonise the vibration of your space.
Singing bowls and bells come in different frequencies that can help stimulate different types of energy or chakras.
They are also believed to balance the right and left sides of the brain and aid in stress reduction, mediation practices and relaxation.
These are perfect to use to cleanse your space or second-hand furniture, reduce anxiety about your living situation and promote peace and clarity.
5. Essential Oils and Incense
Diffusing essential oils or burning incense is another great way to cleanse your home and promote positive energy.
Frankincense, Jasmine or Sandalwood are great options for incense as they promote protection and the clearing of lower energies.
For essential oils, citrus scents like lemon and orange promote motivation and happiness, floral scents like Lavender and Rose help reduce anxiety and promote harmonious relationships and herbal or woody scents like Rosemary, Clary Sage, Jasmine and Patchouli help to ward of negative energies.
Use essential oils in either a diffuser, oil burner or as a spray.
Your home is really where the heart is, so keeping it filled with positive energy will really allow you to thrive on your highest path.
Crystals are a great way to bring positivity in the home as they can absorb, clear and recalibrate negative energy.
Some of the best crystals to use include:
Clear Quartz: helps to strengthen positive energy in the home by absorbing and clearing negative energy. Can also help reduce fear, stress and anxiety. Place the quartz around computers/TV, in the study, kitchen, in the main living space or anywhere you need clear, fresh energy.
Rose Quartz: helps to create harmony, trust and peaceful relationships within the home. It is perfect for couples or families looking to deepen their connection. Rose Quartz is best kept in the bedroom. If you are using it to promote a healthy, romantic relationship make sure you use two crystals.
Amethyst: helps to promote spiritual development and finding your higher purpose. It also helps to absorb negative entities, stagnant or stuck energy and is a powerful protector. It is also great for stimulating your intuition and creativity. Place amethyst in your home office, mediation room or in the main living space.
Jade: helps to promote family harmony, friendship and mindfulness. It is also gently energizing and can help you feel grounded and supported. Jade is also said to promote good health and fortune. Place in your office, by the front door or in the main living area.
Tigers Eye: helps to protect your home and space from unwelcome visitors, negative entities and energy. It also helps to create a stronger, more balanced energy in the home in order to motivate and help you set goals. Place in the home office or anywhere you need a boost of energy.
7. Listen to Mantras
The vibrations of these ancient Vedic sounds will enhance the energy in your home and heart. Let these sounds fill your home with their energy of bliss, allow yourself to sink into it. I will list a few mantras that I believe enhance mood, energy and vibrations. You can find audio or video recordings of these mantras online. You don’t have to know their words or understand their meanings, the vibrations do the work on their own.
The Mrityunjaya Mantra (which literally means victory over death) is very healing to the body, and promotes good health.
The Hrim seed mantra is purifying and cleansing to the home, body and spirit.
The Gayatriis one of my favorites. So sweet, gentle and calming. This mantra always makes me feel safe, protected and in good hands. The Gayatri gives us a good vibe of peacefulness and clarity.
8. Love Your Space
Dwelling in a home of good vibrations connects us deeper to our inner divinity. It brings us closer to unlocking the potential we all have within, and lets our hearts move freely. You will FEEL this energy. Let it charge you up, and come alive! Welcome love and abundance into your life!
