Have you ever entered a home that seemed to emanate positivity, happy and relaxed energy? Well here are ideas of how to bring some of those good vibes into your home. For more ideas, check out my Usher In The Good Vibes collection.
Hang a Hamsa
In many cultures, the hamsa (also called the Hand of Fatima) is believed to provide defence against the evil eye. Hang one on or near your front door - it can't hurt.
Decorate with Pyrite
Pyrite is said to create a defensive shield against negative energies, environmental pollutants and emotional and physical attacks. Try including a hunk of pyrite on a book shelf or as a paperweight to bring on the positivity and the bling.
Throughout history people from many cultures have burned white sage to enhance positive energy, cleanse one's living space and invite protection. It's Latin name salvia also means "to heal." Burn dried sage to cleanse a space...
When you purchase new (or old) items for your home, spray them with sage spray to cleanse the items of any negative energy the item may carry into your home.
Add lucky leaves
According to the principles of feng shui, a lucky bamboo plant attracts auspicious chi energy. Try placing one near your front door and bunching multiple sticks together in one vase for even more good vibes.
Turn on a Himalayan Salt Lamp
Salt lamps attract humidity and when heated with an incandescent bulb, they accelerate evaporation, which produces negative ions which combats air pollutants. I know it's all science-y, but basically, they're really good for you. And, if that's not enough, the light produced by the lamps is said to increase relaxation and decrease stress.
Frankincense promotes calm and peace. It’s used to relieve stress and anxiety. Use the incense sticks or the essential oils too.
The smell of jasmine is thought to help with matters of love and friendship, and can help to bring out people's inner-beauty. I love the Dyptique home scent, but try using jasmine in stick or essential oil form as well.
