Throughout the day, we feel the energies around us. That’s why it’s super important to create a safe, restful home, where you can relax and fully express yourself.
There are many ways to clean a home; perhaps you’re used to the classic “water, soap and mop” cleansing, but oftentimes we forget about the actual energy in our space! I believe we’re very aware of how good it feels when we’ve organized and tossed out objects that no longer support self-expression. This yummy feeling brings high and supportive energy. When we respect our space, it’s a wonderful acknowledgement of self-love.
From a personal perspective, if my space is a mess, I feel unaligned with my true energy. I work to keep an energetically supportive energy out of respect to who I am as a soul. We’re all high vibrational beings!
It’s especially good to keep in mind that if you’re going through a transformative time, having a clean space can help you through the process because of the energy exchange between you and your space. So the better the vibe at home, the better the vibe within YOU!
Here are some tips on how to lift the vibrations in your home!
Clean out all things and belongings that don’t represent who you are and who you want to be.
Clean your space with only clean products. I think of treating the home the way we treat our bodies; using organic, cruelty-free products will raise the vibration and karma for you and your space. I use lemon for everything!
Before you get started: set an intention focusing on how you want to feel, so that you’re energetically moving with your intention in mind, giving off that energy to each room! It can also be helpful to play music or listen to an audiobook while cleaning if you find it boring. This helps lift your vibration and dedicate it to your home.
When it comes to mirrors, windows and shiny surfaces, imagine a rosebush with thorns and beautiful flowers growing around them. This protects energies from entering through this “portal.”
Use black and white crystals for walls shared with neighbors. Find crystals that spark energy within you. Black Tourmaline and selenite are some of my faves! A crystal can even bring you joy if you find it pretty!
Plants carry very positive energies! Avoid having too many in the bedroom, as they represent growth. You don't want to be working during your rest time. Fresh flowers are great too!
If you feel called to sit in the center of your space, visualize a light beam going through the floor, down into mother earth and all the way up to the heavens. Let this light grow wide and cover your entire space! This light can look and feel different to people. I sometimes see an ocean that splashes up against the walls. Covering everything with its strong, clean, fresh and beautiful energy.
Lastly, open the windows and find some organic sage. Don't burn it to death - just remove a leaf and burn it with caution. It’s recommended to have the windows open for at least 20 minutes.
