How do you feel when you’re in your home environment? Reiki Clients come into my office for many reasons but one common denominator is stress reduction! We work together for an hour or 2 and they are feeling ‘blissed out’ when they leave. That feeling can last hours, days or longer but if you go home to a space that is toxic in some way you will not have a chance at maintaining that inner peace.
It’s not about how large or posh your living space is but how high the energy vibration is. I understand this term ‘energy vibration’ is elusive and vague to some of you but it is most definitely real. You clearly feel the difference in the office atmosphere when the boss walks in, and think about the feel of the beach air vs. basement atmosphere. You get the point. Our environment effects us in many ways and there are easy ways to transform your home space to support your quest for calm and peace. Here are some of my top suggestions that clients tell me have made a difference and that I personally have positive experience with.
1. Open Windows
At least 10 minutes/day.
Clutter effects our brains and our overall health. Dust and mold collect on this clutter and more symbolically it mirrors your inner workings! You don’t have to clear the whole house (although that may be a nice long-term goal for you) but at least have a small area that is free of debris! If you are a pack-rat or hoarder come in for a Reiki series and we will use Malachite to facilitate clearing and letting go.
3. Add Flowers/Plants
Top choices for cleansing are: English Ivy, Peace Lily, Florists’ Chrysanthemum, Variegated Snake Plant. All of these absorb toxins but any plant or flower will soothe your eyes, heart and soul so choose your favorites!
4. Add Art Work/Inspiration
Hang some things that inspire you or make you feel good. This can be in the form of quotes or images or something else more personal to you that reminds you of someone special and/or of the specialness of yourself.
5. Burn Incense
Take your pick. Any one will do. My personal favorite is Sandalwood – Very earthy.
6. Light Sage or Palo Santo
Sage. It is easy to grow your own in summer, dry it, bundle it and then burn away.
Palo Santo or “Holy Stick” is a natural wood aromatic incense used for centuries by the Incas and indigenous people of the Andes as a spiritual remedy for purifying and cleansing, as well as to get rid of evil spirits and misfortune. as well as for medicinal purposes.
For clearing the air toward tranquility my suggestion is Selenite. Place many wands of this crystal all around your home or quiet space. These gems do not need to be cleansed.
8. Use Diffuser
Fill it with your choice of essential oils and enjoy how the natural fragrance alters the mood in the room.
Use one or many to alter the mood of a room and clear stagnating air.
10. No Synthetic Fragrances
Yep. Poison.They effect hormone function, reduce sperm count, have been linked to liver and breast cancer, diabetes, obesity, Autism, ADHD, and neurological disorders.
11. No Cigarette/Cigar Smoke
I do not even know what to say about this. They are clearly poisonous. Just don’t! And if you must, take it outside and protect the air inside your home.
12. Clear Relationship
This is not always possible, I am aware, but do your best because this discord can effect us negatively deep down to a cellular level. Sometimes when my housemate (who happens to be my husband) is misbehaving I tell him I must clear his aura and then I go all around him clinging my tuning fork against a clear quartz crystal. Ahhhh. Much better.
13. Tibetan Salt Lamps
Oh so pretty and reduces negative ions. Read here for more information.
14. Burden Basket
Hang or place a basket of some sore outside your home or just outside your own personal quiet area to remind you of issues you want to leave out side. You can even write these issues down on a square of paper and put it in the basket prior to entering the space. Let them go. Release your burdens!
15. No Shoes
This is self explanatory. Take off your shoes before entering your main living area leaving the physical poisons outside and symbolically leaving all the worldly stresses out there as well.
This does not have to be a traditional altar but just a little placemat, table or rug where you can place items that will assist you in gaining peace and clarity some of which have been listed above.
Add some of these sound options to bring an air of peace to your space:
- Wind Chimes
- Tuning Fork- Chime against a Clear Quartz Crystal
- Tibetan Singing Bowl
- Music-Here’s a sample track of peace inducing music. Certainly some part of it will please you. You can find more on You Tube by searching peaceful music or music for relaxation, etc.
Why not try one or 2 of these ideas and see if they support your goal for experiencing calm? They are not too expensive, are easy to find/do and we all know that you are worth the effort!
