We all have a place that we call home – whether it’s a large house or a small apartment. Even the smallest of habits and rituals can transform your home into a spiritual sanctuary, explains spiritual guru Anna Grace-Davidson.
Do you want something new and exiting in your life? Make space for it and let the new energy come in! Cleaning your home means not only getting rid of old clutter and reorganising cupboards, but also cleaning old or bad energy. Get rid of all old things that you don’t need any more.
Burning incense has several benefits for the mind, body and home. It provides another way to clean the energy in your surroundings and it refreshes the space. There are different types of incense, each with their own physical and psychological uses, so choose your favourite scents intuitively, but remember to use natural products.
We often create altars unconsciously by putting beautiful things together in the same place – such as an oil lamp, a beautiful picture and some fresh flowers. An altar is where you put your energy, your soul and your positive attention. Make your alter a unique and personal place with a feeling of love, positive emotions and energy. Use crystals, pictures, photographs, flowers, candles oil lamps, perfume, souvenirs, books and jewellery to decorate it.
Lighting a candle can help to neutralise and clear any stagnant energy brought about from cleaning or tiding up. Different colour candles can be used for different energetic purposes, such as red for love. I personally like to use beeswax or natural soya candles.
Fresh Flowers Or Plants
Flowers are not only healthy and air purifying but they will lighten your mood up every time you set eyes on their beauty.
As the popular saying goes, “A room without books is like a body without a soul.” Fill your home with books, but choose them wisely. Books also carry positive or negative energy – think about the kind of books you’d like to place next to your bed.
Crystals have natural healing earth powers and energy that can heal you and attract positive energy into your house. My favourite is rose quartz – place it close your bed and attract love! To improve your health, use jade. To attract wealth, place citrine in the south-east corner of your home.
Clean With Rose Water
Use filtered water and mix it with rose water or oil, and use the mixture to clean your house. Aside from cleaning the dirt, rose is a very strong agent for cleansing bad energy and fights against bad thought processes.
Decorating you home with art is a great idea. Choose the art, photographs and any images that you really love to look at, that inspire you, that put in a good mood or relax you. Don’t have anything hanging on your walls that you don’t feel comfortable with as it will reflect on your mood and you’ll not feel comfortable at your own home.
Finally, the most important things you will need to create a spiritual haven at home is anything that makes you feel enchantment, magic and lots of joy!
