How often do you daydream about moving away and starting anew, or envisage a trip to a far-away spiritual destination to connect with, and nourish, your soul? The truth is, you don’t need to think of a sanctuary as a refuge; instead, think of it as the place in which you already live. Your home can be turned into an oasis where you rejuvenate, restore and evolve. Fifth-generation healer, Alla Svirinskaya tells you how…
Top tips for a harmonious home
1 Say ‘hello’ to your house each time you enter.
2 Minimise any electromagnetic stress on your aura by not sleeping with your mobile phone or electric clock on the bedside table; your head is most susceptible to electromagnetic stress. Plants such as philodendrons and spider plant are known to soak up EMFs.
3 When you come in from work, change into loose clothing; your aura is restricted by synthetic and tight clothes.
4 Different smells connect us to different levels of our spiritual self. You can use smudge sticks, incense or a vaporiser with essential oils to bring scent to your home. Rely on intuition to choose the right aroma for you. Frankincense is good for uplifting the energy of your environment.
5 There are certain rhythms and instruments that tend to balance the body, such as Mozart’a muaic. When selecting a track, consider the key in which it’s written as well as the composer’s intention behind the essence of the music.
6 Light scented candles. Not only do they have uplifting aromas, but they also cleanse the energy; negativity is destroyed as it passes through the flame. That’s why in many traditions around the world, people use candles and flames to ward off evil spirits.
7 Buy white roses for your home; they tend to disperse negative energy following an argument.
