“It’s all about positive Feng-Shui vibes”
Bring more positive energy in your home
Light affects your mood. Make sure you see enough daylight during the day. At night you can make your room sanctuary proof with a Himalayan salt stone lamp. This lamp brings the electric charge of the room in balance. Himalayan salt has a positive healthy effect on body and mind because it purifies the air of the room. Another great benefit is the fact that this lamp creates a beautiful atmosphere in your room because the light is so romantic. I’m serious, you don’t know what you are missing if you never had a Himalayan salt lamp. I wish I could fill my whole room with them.
Incense can definitely help you to relax. White sage for example is used by shamans to cleanse negative energies. You can buy the incense pure or use smudgesticks. With the smudge ritual you can get rid of negative energies in room. Use a albone shell to burn your smudge sticks. This shell is suitable for smudging because it can handle the heat. *And it is really pretty ofcourse. Make sure the smoke is streamed in every corner of your room and that you have your windows open, so that energy can go leave the room.
Just like places and people, plants have a vibration too. A study by NASA has shown that there are many plants that have the ability to purify air. Aloe Vera for example is easy to maintain and is known for its healing soothing effect on burning skin. It helps to purify the air against chemicals from detergents. According to NASA, ivy is one of the best air-purify plants.
The big clean-up
A chaotic mess in your home brings stagnant energy. A good day to do a big clean up could be on the day of new moon. On this day you can focus on new ideas and intentions for the coming month. A organized life will give you more space to think more clearly.
Surround yourself with inspirational vibes
Surround yourself with inspirational vibes; think of posters, positive quotes and images. Put the most beautiful books in your closet or on a coffee table.
Have a Crystal party
Crystals are not only very pleasing for the eye, they’re also being used because of the energy’s that they carry. It has been said that old civilizations like Atlantis had special machinery’s with crystals in it. Gemstones have been used for thousands of years and every stone has a certain effect and vibration. Rose Quartz may be used to attract love and self-love. Amethyst can attract spiritual wisdom and energy. Aragonite can lift up blocked energy in your home. And there are still hundreds of gemstones that you can get in your home for the right positive energy. Not every stone will be suitable for the user. Sometimes, it may occur that the energy of the stone is simply too strong. Go to a gem shop and get informed about the stones. I wore black tourmaline for a while and I did not expect it to be that strong. I used it to lift up blocked energy. When you walk into a precious gem store it is possible to pick up the energy of the store right away.
