Every building has its own energy, and it is really important that you connect to this energy so you can feel relaxed and comfortable in your home. We want our home to be somewhere where you feel at ease, especially after a hard day at work, so you need to make sure that the energy within your home is working with you, not against you. There are several things you can do to strengthen this connection so that you and your home are one. You can either work on a particular room that you feel needs attention, or you can focus on the whole house.
The first step is to remove any clutter that is in your home, Clutter doesn’t serve any purpose, and can hold onto negative energy in the room. By removing any clutter, you are creating space for fresh, new, positive energy to flow through easily. Think about your drawers and cupboards too. If you haven’t used it for ages or it’s broken, then bin it, sell it or give it to a friend.
The next step is to clear any of the negative energy that has built up in your home. This could have come from the clutter, arguments, emotions etc and could have a detrimental affect on your life. To do this, we would recommend lighting some incense or sage (over a heatproof dish) and walking slowly around your house in an anti-clockwise direction. Waft the smoke from the sage/ incense into the corners of every room, setting your intention to remove any negative energy. Do this until you feel like it is complete.
Bring in Positive Energy
Once you have removed the negative energy, there will be a void in your home. If you do not fill this void with positive energy, then the negative energy will come back in. We do this by thinking about what you want to feel in your home – whether that’s love, connection, happiness. Think of symbols that represent these feelings, for example if you want to feel love then imagine big red hearts. Sit down in the central part of your house and in your mind, fill your house with your symbols. Make sure they are in every room, every corner.
There are different types of Feng Shui, but Carolina uses the Tibetan Feng Shui which uses a Bagua. Feng Shui is the moment of energy and how it flows through your home. Each corner of your house or your room represents a different aspect of your life, for example the right hand corner of your bedroom, with your back against the door, is your relationship corner. The state of that area in your home may affect that aspect of your life. For example, if you have a bin in your relationship corner, you may be having trouble with your partner. If your front garden is overgrown and messy, then you may be having problems in your career. To improve these aspects of your life, make sure each area is clear from clutter, tidy and clean. It’s also important to have something that represents what you want from life in that area, for example you could have a piece of rose quartz in your relationship corner. For more details regarding Feng Shui, then look at Carolina’s videos here.
Here is the Bagua. Your back should be towards the door with you looking out into the room/ house.
Connecting with Your Home
As mentioned before, having a connection with your home is very important in creating a relaxed environment where you feel safe and at peace. Carolina has recorded a meditation to help strengthen this connection, which you can find here. You can do this meditation whenever you energy clear or when you are feeling disconnected from your home.
