As we spend so much time in our homes, its important to keep the energy as high as possible and free from blockages which may cause us to feel tense or anxious. Here are 10 ways to raise the energy of your home so that you have a space where you can feel safe, relaxed and inspired:
Windows should be opened regularly, especially while you are sleeping to allow more oxygen in and allow chi to circulate. This will allow you to wake up with more energy and a clearer head.
Any type of clutter or old objects with bad memories should be given away. Clutter can be stored in baskets if there is nowhere for it to go and should never be stored on the floor.
Clean With Essential oils and Natural Cleaning Products
Your home needs to be cleansed regularly to keep the space clear from any blockages, release any stagnant energy and allow the chi to flow. You can also place a bowl of salt in each corner to absorb any negative energy.
