For some reason, when we think of sacred or calming spaces, our minds immediately envision a spa, a waterfront vacation resort, or a cabin tucked away in the mountains. But, each of us has the ability to turn our home into a safe and relaxing space that supports our journey to find peace and calm. This is especially important in those times when the outside world is in heightened chaos, negativity, and confusion.
I want to also provide you with three ways to turn your space into a sanctuary:
1. Declutter your home of unnecessary “stuff”
A messy home can wreak havoc on your peace of mind. The unopened mail and the unfolded clothes are nothing more than a constant reminder of your never-ending “to-do” list.
Whether your style is a wholesale purging, or you prefer a more calculated approach to decluttering, just do it. It’ll do your soul good.
2. Create a quiet space in your home
Many of us have families and children to contend with when trying to find quiet space in our homes. But, creating a space where you can escape (if even for just a few minutes) is essential to maintaining your peace.
Each time you visit this place, allow it to serve as a mini-retreat that invites you to become intimately connected with your feelings and the deepest desires of your heart.
3. Don’t underestimate the power of a good scent
The right scent can actually shift your mood. Think soothing aromatherapy, all natural oils, herbs, and flowers that invite you to de-stress, relax and focus.
With a few small changes, you can completely change up the flow of your space and turn your home into a refuge, which is especially important given we are spending almost all of our time at home right now.
Use these tips and allow the peace to fall upon you, giving your home and soul the chance to work together in spiritual matrimony.
