When it comes to meditation, mindfulness and spirituality, it is often difficult to find a place to relax. There are simple steps to making your most intimate spaces more comfortable and spiritually sound. You will spark the senses, and effect the overall atmosphere in your home by adding just a few items.
The natural glowing light of a candle is much warmer than the artificial light that we often experience. Transform a space by switching the lights off and filling it with candles of different shapes, sizes, and colors. Use fire safety practices, and save on electricity!
Sage Smudge and Incense
Sage smudging is an ancient healing and spiritual tradition in which the smoke of the burning sage cleanses the energy of all it surrounds. To activate and cleanse the energy in a room, simply light the smudge stick and fan to produce smoke. Use a decorative tray or seashell to catch the ash. Craft your own smudge stick with home-grown sage and cotton string, or find them prepackaged in stores.
Incense is another simple way to change the energy in your home. The strong scent will instantly enhance the atmosphere. Be sure to choose one you are fond of, and try out a few different types to see what responds best.
Crystals and Himalayan Salt Lamps
Crystals and Himalayan salt lamps are a nice way to cleanse the energy in your home without the use of fire or smoke. Crystals, such as quartz and amethysts are known for their healing properties. Similarly, salt lamps cleanse the atmosphere by attracting and releasing water molecules in the air. This process acts as a filter for microscopic pollutants such as dust and other allergens.
With these few additions, you will be on your way to creating your own spiritual bliss. To find these items look in your local gift shop, retail stores, or shop online. By cleansing the energy in your home, and by filling it with glowing light and natural aromas, you will enhance your overall well-being.
