Sometimes, our spaces are so stagnant and jammed up that it feels daunting and hard to take the first step or make any significant headway toward creating a home that feels AMAZING.
Check out the list below and feel into what you can do to raise the energy of your space FIRST so that you will want to keep the good vibes moving and shifting higher and HIGHER!
As we go through life the energy from all of our experiences (the highs AND the lows) can build up in our homes, furniture and belongings...
Get in the habit of doing regular space-clearings and it will keep you and your space feeling fresh and light.
Think of it as an energetic dusting!
- Essential Oils--Orange, Lemon and Rose are some of the best essences for space clearing. They have a fresh light aroma and do wonders to wake up the energy of a space. Use a high quality brand such as Young Living. This company also makes an oil blend called Purification which is AMAZING for uplifting a space, as well. Put a few drops in a diffuser or even just in a clean spray bottle filled with distilled water and spray it around, especially in places that feel stuck. Contact Connie, our rep, if you are interested in learning more about how essential oils can support you as you work through your home.
- Water--Creating sacred rituals using water can help boost the energy of your space. Water has been used in cleansing rituals all through the centuries. If you have a religious background or belief system, very likely you are familiar with water rituals, like baptism, that you can use to inspire you. If not, make up your own! You could collect spring water from one of your favorite spots in nature to remind you of the bigger world outside your home. Or you could mix water with your favorite essential oils or slices of orange, lemon or limes and walk through your home flicking the water in every nook and cranny as you recite a special affirmation, wish or mantra. Whatever you decide to do, have fun with the process!
- Sound and Clapping--Sound is an amazing space-clearing tool. The vibration of certain sounds can rapidly freshen the energy of a space. Try soothing music, classical music, bells or pots and pans lids. Experiment and see what feels best to you.
And clapping? Really????? Yes, Absolutely! This is without a doubt my favorite space clearing technique--and best of all, you only need two hands and an open heart! The sound waves generated by clapping can completely transform a space. Stretch your hands out in front of you--one on top of the other--like giant alligator jaws, and clap to your heart’s content. This is a wonderful ritual to do with children, since they naturally like to make lots of noise! Aim your hands into those stuck spots--corners, baseboards, ceilings, under furniture, behind cabinets--anywhere that feels stuck. And keep clapping! You will actually hear the resonance shift as you go, and you’ll instinctively know how long to stay in each area.
