Home Sweet Home!

If there is one place you want to be at the end of a tiring day, it is the warm familiar surroundings of your home. It is important for your home to be calming; a place that relaxes you and helps you unwind so you can keep the stress levels at bay. Your home is a reflection of yourself. You must create a space that allows good energy to breathe. To come home and find a sink full of dirty dishes and laundry that is piling up doesn’t do your sense of well-being and happiness any good. Hence, I encourage you to make a change in your life.
Think about the things that make you smile, and then incorporate those elements in your house. These could be books, candles, scented oils, green plants or things that inspire you. You must place these where you can see them and absorb their energy on a daily basis. However, it is also important to keep your place free of clutter and to not go overboard with these ideas. Balance is the key here. As with Feng Shui and the ancient science of Vaastu Shaastra, both which focus on the flow of energy in our home and environment, it is believed that good health and peace flourish in a clean place, free of dirt and filth.
Sometimes, even though everything looks fine to our eyes, we can sense some discomfort when we enter a place, and we know that it doesn’t feel quite right. This may also be true in situations where current occupants are experiencing similar problems to previous residents. Here, it is clear that the space needs to be altered to invite growth. There are five essential elements that must be in complete harmony for any place to provide you with its optimum potential. These are the earth, metal, fire, wood and water.
Turning your home and office environment into a calm and serene space will help you benefit from the universe that we live in. So take that first step today towards a better life. Let your home be an extension of yourself, a place you are eager to go back to. Let the sunshine illuminate not just your home but also your heart, body and the soul. Eject the unwanted and create space for the new. Make your place your own personal haven!
