3 Easy Ways To Raise The Vibration In Your New Home
Moving into a new home can be life-changing. Especially if you’re a new homeowner, you may have found the whole experience a little overwhelming, and might even get the sense that something is just not right in your new home.
But feeling as though something is off in your new home doesn’t mean you need to call in the Ghostbusters or go back on the sale. It’s more than likely that the vibrations, or energy, of your new home are simply not resonating with you just yet. Fortunately, this can be resolved with a few easy, cost-effective changes.
1. Cleaning Energy And Improving The Mood
Humans have been engaging in energy cleansing and magical healing for thousands of years, so you may find benefit in the ritual of cleansing of a new home’s energy to lift the previous owner’s footprints. You can get started with saging and smudging.
Burning incense and herbs, also known as smudging, is a common energy cleansing practice that many new homeowners use to dispel energy left behind by previous owners. Smudge sticks made with sage and cedar are often used to bless your home and improve the mood around your house. Simply light the stick and place it in a fireproof container to slowly smolder and fill the air with cleansing aroma and plant medicine energy.
Smudging may also improve your health since sage has antimicrobial properties, which can reduce the spread of viruses, bacteria, and fungi. Some sages are also mildly psychoactive, which means that you’ll experience a subtly altered state of consciousness from burning them that may be able to help you work through spiritual issues you are experiencing in your new home.
2. Plants And Nature
Humans have been using plants and nature to adorn and enliven their indoor spaces for thousands of years. This makes sense since time spent in nature with fresh air, sunshine and the elements allows us to reflect and think more clearly.
Before you move to your new home, take inventory of your current plants and note which flowers, shrubs, and trees bring you joy and positive feelings. Each plant gives off its own unique vibe, just as humans do. You can consider bringing these high-vibration plants with you by transplanting them from your current property (or purchasing new ones if they are too large) to help maintain a sense of continuity and raise the vibrations of your new home.
You can safely transplant plants by choosing to move during a cooler season like fall or winter and should always keep your plants’ root balls wet throughout the moving process. Once you’ve brought your high-vibration plants into your new home, pay special attention to the way they react to their new surroundings. Just like humans, some plants don’t respond well to a different climate and may need to be moved indoors or into shady areas to prosper. If your plants don’t take to their new environment, consider taking cuttings, as fresh growth can always come from plants unhappy with their current circumstances.
3. Space And Furniture
Setting up your new space for higher vibrations can be tricky; sometimes, the furniture you bring with you doesn’t resonate with your new surroundings and can produce a jarring effect on the inhabitants of your household.
You can better set up your space by understanding the interior design principles of feng shui. Feng shui is an assessment tool to help you understand how energy and vibrations flow through your space in both good ways and bad. For instance, when you are walking through your home, try to spot for yourself any areas where energy, or chi, might be stagnated by furniture that is too large or is unnecessary in the space where it is placed.
You don’t need to break the bank when opting for vibration-raising furniture. Even simple changes can make small rooms look bigger and improve the flow of energy in your house. Consider repainting rooms that feel claustrophobic. For example, consider using crisp white and pale blue paints in bathrooms and other small spaces, and opt for mirrors in well-lit spaces. Avoid hanging mirrors above beds or sofas, as a heavy mirror hanging over a resting space can unconsciously cause one to feel unsafe.
Remember to be persistent. Crafting the right vibe in a new home takes time and can’t be achieved overnight. The key is to stick with it, stay in tune with your new surroundings, and the time and effort you put into making your new home just the right vibration for you will be rewarded many times over in years to come.
