By now most people know that your thoughts and emotions can create good or ill health. Your body responds to the vibration of your thoughts and emotions. As it does so, it reflects back to you in its own language what you’re sending out or radiating in the energetic form of thoughts. For example, fear of financial security usually manifests in the body as lower back ailments.
Your body isn’t the only thing that responds to the energy of your thoughts. Your home also reflects the energy that you’re emitting with your thoughts and your emotions.
You’ve no doubt had the experience of entering someone’s home and immediately felt either very comfortable or very ill at ease. What you sensed is the energy of the inhabitants which has been absorbed by the house.
This energy remains long after the inhabitants have moved from the house. For examples, the last three houses that my husband and I have purchased all had negative energy. Two of them had been occupied by drug users.The other house had been owned and lived in for years by a man who can only be described as a very angry curmudgeon.
The good news is that the energy of any building can be changed with a little work. There are certain things I’ve found that are very effective in shifting the energy of a house from dark, negative to light, bright, and happy. Using these techniques, I was able to shift the energy of all three houses to light and cheery energy.
Here are some of the techniques I used:
Cleaning. This sounds like a no-brainer, but you would be amazed at how much difference deep cleaning can make in the energy of a house. After we’d purchased an abused house a few years ago, a friend came to help me do some cleaning on it before we moved in. She chose to clean the disgustingly filthy kitchen. At one point she remarked that she wouldn’t tell me what she was finding in certain drawers because I’d never want to use them. When she got done we stood back to admire her work and we both saw a HUGE Cheshire cat-type grin hanging mid-air in the kitchen. The house was already on its way to becoming a happy house!
Painting. Another version of cleaning as a method of energy clearing, painting does much to raise the energy of a home. A fresh coat of paint on the interior freshens up the energy and as a bonus, it lasts longer than cleaning. Sometimes just changing the color makes a whole lot of difference. I use a low-gloss enamel which reflects the light just a bit, bringing even more light into the rooms. One house we bought had the exterior painted an ugly institutional green. After I painted it a warm beige with white trim all the neighbors said it looked larger. One said that before I painted it, the house was ashamed of how it looked and was shrinking to hide itself, but now it was beautiful and it was jutting its chest out in pride!
Feng Shui. This ancient Oriental directs the energy flow within a home so that it’s most beneficial. The most simple method is to just clear the clutter to allow energy to flow smoothly throughout the home. A simple method I like to use is to pretend like you’re a gentle breeze and enter your home through the front door. Notice how you want to move, if you’re split in certain places, and if there are dead ends where you just stop. An excellent book on this is Sacred Space by Denise Linn.
Beauty. Bring into your home the things that you find beautiful and that bring you joy. Not only will they raise your energy, they’ll raise the energy of your home as well.
Music and other sounds. Just as certain types of music affect you differently, they also affect your house. The same is true of anything that emits sound – TV, computers, animals, machinery. Pay attention to the sounds within and around your house and how those sounds affect you. They’re affecting your house, too, and in the same way.
Crystals and healing stones. You will find crystals in every room in my house, plus I have a specific room in which I have the majority of my collection. The energy in my Crystal Room is of such high quality that people who visit are naturally drawn to that room and, once there, are loathe to leave it. There are stones and minerals that have specific qualities. For example, Hematite and Jet are excellent for absorbing lower based energies. Malachite radiates powerful healing energy. Rose Quartz emits the vibration of love.
You and the place you live are connected energetically. Raise the vibration of your home and simultaneously raise your vibration.
