How to Bring Positive Energy into Your Home

Creating Positive Energy in your Home after Divorce with Feng Shui

Going through a divorce can open up opportunities for positive energy, new beginnings & a fresh start in life. It can feel liberating to think about the possibilities that come after being trapped in an emotionally taxing & stressful situation for so long. As you work towards creating a new life for yourself, it’s essential to infuse positive energy into your environment.

What is your definition of Positive Energy?

After a divorce, it’s a chance to start anew &welcome positive energy into your life. However, what does “positive energy” signify for you, & how can you attract more of it?

Although energy is invisible, it is the fundamental building block of everything. Recent studies have revealed that this energy field oscillates at different frequencies, which can affect our surroundings & our own well-being. Similar to how we are influenced by the energy of the people we interact with, our living environment can also absorb & reflect the energies present within its confines.

After a divorce, if you choose to continue living in your marital home, you may find that it still carries the negative emotions & memories from your past. This can hinder your ability to move on & start anew. Therefore, you deserve a fresh & revitalised environment that promotes positivity & new beginnings.

The first step towards revitalising your home is to remove anything that no longer serves you. This could involve selling off possessions following a divorce or simply discarding items that bring up negative emotions or memories. Open up the windows & give your home a thorough cleaning.

Consider smudging every corner with sage or other purifying herbs to eliminate any lingering negative energy. Whatever approach you take, the goal is to start fresh & create a positive atmosphere in your living space. It’s time to lift your mood & banish negativity!

Creating Positive Energy in your Home

It is important for your home to be a space that promotes positivity & good health, allowing you to flourish. However, after a divorce, you may not have the financial means to decorate extensively. Fortunately, you can still improve the energetic atmosphere of your home without major renovations. You could consider incorporating the principles of Feng Shui philosophy. Even with limited finances or decorating preferences, you can transform your living space into a source of positive energy.

Did you know that Feng Shui has its roots in ancient Chinese culture & believes that everything has energy, even inanimate objects? By using the Bagua map, Feng Shui focuses on arranging furniture, colours, & materials to improve the flow of energy in your home. If you’re looking to create a positive environment that supports your new life, making simple yet impactful changes to your home’s energetic character can make a big difference.

The Entrance to your Home

As per the principles of Feng Shui, the entryway plays a significant role in determining the energy that flows into your home. To ensure a positive ambience, it is essential to keep your front door clean & welcoming. Make sure that your foyer or front hallway is well-lit & free from shoes & any obstacles that may obstruct the flow of positive energy. You can also consider adding a unique piece of furniture, such as a cabinet or hall tree, to keep your keys, leashes, & shoes organised to maintain an uncluttered entryway.

The Nucleus – Your Kitchen

In the realm of Feng Shui, the kitchen symbolises both nourishment & relationships. While we tend to enjoy our countertop gadgets, Feng Shui principles discourage clutter. Perhaps it is time to consider finding discreet storage solutions for appliances like your mix-maker & air fryer in order to free up your counter space. Keeping your kitchen well-lit, spotless, & free from unnecessary items that collect dust is highly recommended.

Your Lounge

Creating balance & flow in your living space is essential for positive energy. Avoid obstructing entryways with bulky furniture & use colour to attract the right energy. Incorporate natural elements & plants to brighten up the space. When choosing artwork for your home consider the elemental colours, in terms of Earth, Air, Water & Fire, to evoke the desired energy. Remember, art is subjective so choose what resonates with you.

Your Bedroom

As per Feng Shui principles, the bedroom holds the utmost significance in your home. It symbolises you, therefore the position of your bed plays a crucial role in maintaining an energetic equilibrium in the room. To ensure stability, the headboard should be placed against a plain wall. It is recommended to avoid doors that open directly in line with your bed, which is called the “coffin position.”

All other furnishings should maintain balance, & harmony & be free of clutter. To enhance positivity, reduce the usage of electronics, & bring in fresh flowers & green plants whenever possible. Opt for colours that invite positive energy & even a touch of romance for your next phase.

Your Home’s Positive Energy

The Tangible Aspect

Many people find that being in nature makes them feel more alive & invigorated. To bring those same feelings into your home, consider using natural materials to create a balanced environment. Fill your space with plenty of greenery, natural surfaces, & fabrics. Let in as much sunlight as possible. To enhance the ambience, try using aromatherapies, candles, & essential oils that promote happiness, joy, & mental healing. Some great options include lavender, bergamot, ylang-ylang, & patchouli.

Working with Colour

The use of colour can have a significant impact on emotions & psyche. According to Feng Shui, specific colours can symbolise the various elements of nature & provide energetic support to a physical environment.

~ Greens & blues are the colours of growth & vitality. These colours can promote a sense of rejuvenation and energy.

~ Whereas dark blues & black represent water, trust, security, & knowledge, suggesting confidence & professionalism.

~ Reds & purples, on the other hand, are the colours of fire. They represent passion, spontaneity & strength.

~ Yellows & oranges are the colours of the earth. They suggest intelligence, tolerance, & patience & allow you to feel grounded & calm.

~ Beiges, whites & silvers are the colours of metal. They represent new connections, creativity & precision.

Did you know that colours and elements in Feng Shui philosophy are intricately linked with directions & shapes? In fact, managing these aspects in different areas of your home can modify the energetic movement inside it. If you’re interested in learning more about the ancient philosophy of Feng Shui, I highly recommend checking out some resources on it. It’s truly fascinating!

Small Actions can create Big Benefits

It’s often true that our emotional state is mirrored in our environment. For example, after going through a difficult divorce, your home may also feel tense & uneasy. However, even small efforts to give your home & yourself some TLC can lead to a more positive & uplifting atmosphere.

Taking care of both yourself and your living space is important for overall well-being. You can create a more positive and peaceful environment by decluttering negative thoughts and physical clutter. Making your bed & cleaning your floors & furniture can also give you a sense of accomplishment & contribute to a more organised and functional space.

Remember to give yourself credit for the small steps you take towards improvement, you’ve got this.
