Crystal balls tucked into the tufting of upholstery got me thinking of even more spectacular ways to upgrade spaces with energy.
Are you so wishing you could upgrade your whole home?
What if I told you that without renovating you could really transform your home?
What if you could do the same with your style, your diet, your job… really your whole life?
In feng shui, what you do to your environment has a ripple effect in your entire life.
Let’s look at ways to do some energy decorating at home that can transform your space in ways you’ve never dreamed about. Ways that make you feel buzzing and giddy and calm and focused. Ways that are a makeover… without making-over much but the feelings you have in your space!
Mastering the art of energy decorating is akin to mastering the art of feng shui in my way. Energy decorating is my own coined term for using decor and even fashion and holistic means to make a space come to life in visible and invisible ways that take the “chi” (life force energy) of a space and shake it up into sparkles!
Sparkles. Like piles of quartz that look like diamonds!
Get a sense of the weak points of your space and focus on them. Think of it like getting a trainer at the gym to teach you how to finally sculpt the areas of your body you tend to under-use that are weaker and less defined. Wherever you avoid, whatever tends to become a mess, wherever you feel weak rather than strong… these are the energetic weak points of your home.
You can even have someone walk though your house with you and do this exercise to see where you personally become the weakest. Its quite easy to learn how to go it on You Tube. If you are alone, you can try it yourself right now by trying the method in this very simple video and asking yourself questions like “Is this space right for me?”(or something like this) as you walk though the space and try it. The weak points will emerge clearly, and sometimes surprisingly!
Once you have a clear sense of where to begin, start decluttering. The one thing I know will not fail you is a big clean-sweep declutter of stuff you don’t need in these weak spaces.
Cleanse the juju in your home in a way that resonates with you. I have seen methods that range from epsom salt to sea salt in various mixes, palo santo sticks, incense…. But the fool-prrof method I find for stagnant space is to open the windows. That’s pretty easy. Deeper space cleaning is definitely possible, you just want to be sure to use methods that make you feel good.
Add very very high energy. Color, crystals, aromatherapy, flower essences… this blog is packed with ideas in Sensory Goodness to open up your home energy. While I’ve developed best practices and mixes and methods, you can’t go wrong to give this a whirl and play around.
Now that you’re feeling great, pare down the stuff around you. I’m in the process of parking down my wardrobe to essentials and revamping those essentials so that I have what I need. It took months of reorganizing to get to the place where I see clearly what I need and what I really don’t need. Same goes for decor, paperwork, art…
If you get into the process of this energetic designing, you can re-energize your home in your own favorite ways any time you need it. And, each time, you’ll emerge with a more simplified, free-flowing method for your whole lifestyle that is high on energy , supporting you everywhere you go!
