Having Your Own Space
Hello. I’ve been thinking about my home. Joeaux is moving out into her own home. So I will have my space all to myself. And it’s been a while since I’ve had that.
When I was living in Springfield, in 2016, my son and his family moved in, so I didn’t really have my space there. And then I moved down here and then Joeaux moved in. So I didn’t really have my space there. So I’ve been thinking about what is it that I want my space to feel like. Because you’ve got this, Joeaux talks about this color palette, and you’ve got things that match and things that blend.
I know how that goes. Somebody walked in my house one time, many years ago, and said, “I love your house. Nothing matches.” Because I don’t really purchase things because they match, I purchase things because I like them, or I decorate with things that I like.
What Do I Want?
I’ve been asking myself, what do I want my house to feel like when I come in, so I can be grateful for it, or when someone else comes in? And I’ve decided that I would like my house to feel like a sanctuary, anybody that comes in, just says, “Ah, I just feel so good here.”
Enjoying Your Space
And it can be fun, and light, and playful. And yes, I even have a few boxes in the background, because I will always have selenite swords to ship out. And until I get my closets back, that’s where they are, is in my living room. Which is okay, because how tough is it to have a box of selenite swords of light sitting in your living room? I love that. That’s what you see back there.
Setting an Intention
But when you just think about how you want your home to feel, you’re the one that’s in control of that, you know. When people walk in the door… I actually set an intention. I actually smudge and burn incense, and I set an intention, when people are walking up my driveway, how they will feel, and how I will feel when I walk in the door.
Nurturing Your Body
And then I’d go through each room. And I smudge it and burn a little incense in there. And I set the intention of that room. For example, my kitchen is about the hearth of the home, nurturing, the heart-centered physical rejuvenation to feed my body with good, strong, healthy foods.
Knowing What You Need
My living room is about responsiveness and meditation. And my bedroom is for rest. I don’t have any TVs or anything else in my bedroom. I’m thinking about how to check the clock in the middle of the night without my cell phone being by my bed, because I don’t like clocks, in my room, that have a LED light on them. And when I have a light on the ceiling, it actually, some clocks light up the ceiling, but that actually disturbs my sleep.
Is It Time?
So I’m just asking. Because I like to wake up, I wake up in the middle of the night, and I need to know what time it is so I don’t know if it’s time to go back to sleep or time to get up.
How Do You Want Your Home to Feel?
I program the bathroom for release and cleansing. In doing that, that sets the tone of your house, or my house. So you might think about that. How do you want your home to feel when you walk in, or when anyone else walks in? I think that’s a very important aspect. So that’s your weekly message for this week. How do you want your home to feel? And then set about making it feel that way. Namaste, y’all, namaste.
