As more and more people are becoming conscious, they are becoming aware of the concept of energy. Everything is made up of frequencies and vibrations. This energy is the foundation for your physical, mental, and emotional state. By working with energy, you can influence these other aspects of your health and self.
One of the first principles in energy work is knowing how to protect your energy. This is often seen in terms of the energy of the self. But you are forgetting an important aspect in protection your energy....through your home!
Your home is the first line of defense in protecting your energy. According to Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, a psychological concept prioritizing our level of needs, shelter is the first basic need. Your home is a refuge for you to relax and unwind in. You drop your guard, let yourself relax, and feel a sense of protection at home.
To further create a protective space, you can influence the energy of your home. This is easy to achieve and doesn't require you to be a master in energy work. Here are just a few simple methods on creating a protective energy for your home.
While humans energetic frequencies fluctuate constantly, crystals vibrate at a solid frequency, not altering their energetic field. Each different type of crystal contains their own specific energetic properties. Certain crystals good for protection are Black Tourmaline, Kyanite, Selenite, and Pyrite. You can place these are the corners of your doors/windows, on top of the header, or in the corner of each room.
In many cultures, there was often a protective symbol or talisman that was hung on the front doors and entrances of homes. For example, the Evil Eye and Hamsa Hand are protective charms common in the Middle East. These are said to protect against the Evil Eye curse, which can cause harm, bad luck, and illness to those it hexes. There are many different types of symbolic protective decor to choose from. These symbols don't have to be connected to a cultural identity like the Hamsa Hand, but can be plants, animals, and natural elements.
A red painted door holds much symbolism. In China, red doors were seen as symbols of luck. They helped ward off bad spirits and brought good fortune and health into the home. In America, red doors were a welcoming symbol for travelers. This energy connects to positive energies, inviting those into your space.
Since you spend so much time in your home, your spaces become dumping grounds for the negative energy you can produce in your day. Stress at work, conflicts in relationships, and family arguments can all leave imprints of negative energy in your home. To remove these energies, a space clearing breaks up and transmutes these frequencies. There are many methods of house cleansing, from the popular smudging methods to sound clearings.
