Take a moment and look around the room you are sitting in. See the colors, the textures, and the style. Now, do you notice the energy of the space? Does it feel relaxing, calm, or do you feel uncomfortable as if something is out of place? When we look at our surroundings we see with the eye the beauty of our space and the vision of what we want to create. What we do not see with the eye but do feel is the energy of the space.
There is a real estate belief that when you find your new home you will know it because you can see and place your items in home. We need to pay attention to how we sense and feel the energy. If you have ever shopped for a new home upon entering you can almost feel the energy at the front door if this is the house or not, you just need to pay close attention to what your body is sensing. Is the home saying come on in and inviting to you? Or is the energy heavy and closed saying to you I don’t want to waste my time. If you listen to that inner sense it will be beneficial in creating a harmonious space for yourself.
A few things to consider when purchasing a new abode will also include predecessor energy. Who lived there before a happily married couple, or a divorced couple? Did the previous occupants have financial issues and file for bankruptcy. Some people are even superstitious if someone passed away in the home. These are a few examples of energy that we do not necessarily think of when we look at a new home. Even if your building your new home consider the land, sometimes ancestor energy can be underneath the soil we reside.
I usually offer this advice to someone moving into a new space. You may want to clear or cleanse and bless your new residence. This depends on your own spiritual preferences but can be from holy water, smudging, burning incense are to name a few. Some other ways to make the space fresh and clean again are also fresh paint and flooring. On a superstitious note I always suggest to never take your old mop and broom into your new space especially if you want a new beginning. Discard your old ones as a way to leave the old life and start anew.
