We all want balance and peace at home. A place of serenity and beauty that is a reflection of what you love and what light’s you up inside. But you know it’s not just a want right? It is actually a NECESSITY. For your own well being, your relationships, your grounding. It is not doing anyone any good by having environmental stressors triggering negativity. When grumpiness and annoyance takes over.
If your home is like it has just been hit, if it’s chaotic and drab, your emotions are mirrored by what you see and how you feel where you are standing. By where your feet are planted and the energy you are taking in. It would be great if we had shields and deflectors like Xena Princess Warrior to not give a crap and be resilient to what we see and feel as soon as we walk in the door huh? Well, the truth is, we do. It’s just that we use them every single day outside of our place of solace. We take on the world with these energy sucking encounters at work, constant driving to and fro, organising the family’s stuff and things they have going on on tight schedules, your friends breakdowns (and their wins) finding time to be there for them, being there for everyone else. YOU ARE BUSY! I know some life coaches hate that word because it has a negative connotation. But the truth is THAT is EXACTLY how we feel! Your shield gives you strength and stamina to face it every day.
However, your home is not the place to be still in battle! It’s not supposed to feel like this. It is your place to recharge, to soothe, to reclaim yourself! To feel amazing. To connect with your lover, your kids, your fur babies. It is supposed to be the best place on earth. To put the shield down. But if you are like a many other beautiful warriors wearing thin, and you aren’t feelin it, and you still feel like you are running, you need to do something. You need to take charge and make it a priority. Take a look around. If things are making you uptight or overwhelmed, things need to change! It’s time for you to live Sista!! Like really live!
So…What’s not working here?
Is your dining table a dumping ground? This can have an impact on how we feel. Who wants to cook a nice dinner at 6pm if you have to sort through the mess on the dining table first?!! It doesn’t start the evening off on the right foot huh. Always rushing. Moving stuff from one spot to another (to get to later..), looking at your decor and hating it. Sick of looking at it…all the while wishing you could have that home that looks, smells, feels beautiful. The style that YOU love. The one where you want your girlfriends to come around and envy it. The one where your family feels calm and proud. The one where everything was just so freaking easy to have! The one where you can be a goddess and float around in your abode, giving everyone in your home the best of you!
Shit is about to get real! This is what you need to do! DECLUTTER!!!!! Buy some sorting boxes with lids for bills, letters, homework etc. Remove everything YOU DON’T NEED! That hideous print you have on your wall that you hate… remove it! The numerous decorating pieces that were so 10 years ago…let them go! Those clothes you think will come back in fashion one day?…. they rarely do. You haven’t worn them for years anyway right? Could you see yourself wearing it again? It is just taking up space that could actually be used for the things we want to put away, but have no storage room for because it’s full of stuff we don’t want, need or use! Don’t worry babe, I’m sooo not judging here. All of us do it. All of us feel this way in one way or another. But I can promise you this. If you get some organisation in place, hone in on your style and decorate your space to be a reflection of what you adore and fill your home with love that is from within you, you WILL feel the weight start to lift. You will feel like the goddess. You will feel the right energy surrounding you and your precious people. Get some balance and zen. It works miracles.
And instead of being BUSY… learn to love your life so you feel FULL. Full of happiness, full of giving and full of self preservation and self worth. You are AMAZING, never stop believing that. Turn your home into the place that mirrors that. For you. For them.
