Your home is your Temple as they say, and it’s a place where you’d like to leave all your baggage from the day, out of. If you’re like me who spends a lot of time in your place of abode, you want only good vibes at home. It’s where you unwind, spend each night and wake up every morning. You want to start and end the day on the right foot. Next to full time jobs, it’s where we spend most of our time.
Good vibes at home means different things for different people. Some call it Chi, some call it energy, some call it vibes. But the premise remains the same. We want to feel happy and at peace when we’re there.
This doesn’t just happen on it’s own and it takes some work to maintain, so here are a couple things I do to bring and keep positive energy and good vibes at home.
Keep it airy and light
If your home allows, open the windows and doors and let fresh and clean air flow through. If your area is polluted, try an air purifier. Having a house where breeze and light can easily flow through creates such a calming and positive space.
Good speech and good actions
Be mindful of what you speak into your home. There is something called talking things into existence and putting things into the Universe. Some may not believe, but in my experience, it is very real. Using words and building discussions with conscious thought impacts your family positively.
Declutter and beautify
Clutter can make any space heavy. It’s amazing how light we feel when we clear our home of extra stuff. Be it your closet, the kitchen, the garage, keeping a clean, clutter-free home invites good and positive energy. Add some fresh flowers or plants that promote easy flow of energy such as Lucky Bamboo. Try to refrain from plants with spikes and pickers such as cacti. Here’s a little read up on house plants for good energy. I love meaningful wall art and decals. It spruces up the place and brings me joy to look at them.
Crystals, lamps and Sage
All known for attracting positive energy and dispelling negative forces in your home, these are great additions to create good vibes at home. They are also beautiful for decorating. White sage has been used for eons and is known for promoting healing and keeping your home safe from unwanted guests. Salt lamps help with air purifying and stress while crystals absorb and recalibrate negative energy. Essential oils and incense adds a nice touch and leaves your home smelling so inviting.
I remove as many toxins as I can realistically from my home. I have switched to more natural products that include little to no toxic chemicals. This extends to dishwashing, laundry and general home cleaning items (even dryer stuff). I have also turned to using natural handmade soaps and hair products. You can also make your own! There are tons of resources online and on Youtube.
What about you? How do you create and keep good vibes at home?
