自我隔离– 7步让您的家感觉良好

莎朗·沃克

发表于2020年3月26日

现在我们都在家里度过了可预见的未来,风水先驱简·亚历山大(Jane Alexander)提供了有关如何使您的家成为这个避风港和避难所的秘诀

由于该国家(以及世界上大多数国家)由于日益严重的冠状病毒危机而陷入室内,我们中的许多人不得不适应在家工作,在家工作以及受限于我们可以离开房屋的次数。

所有这些自我隔离足以使任何人疯狂,尤其是在您的房屋不是一个舒适的空间的情况下。

但是,如果您可以将自己的房屋(或新的工作空间)变成避难所和庇护所,那么自我隔离可能永远是最好的选择。

想想蜡烛,颜色,灯光和清晰的空间–对于某些人来说,仅这些词就足以使他们感到镇定并释放压力。

如果您想在房屋中寻求庇护,那么您将要花费大量的时间,风水先锋简·亚历山大(Jane Alexander)提供了一些技巧,帮助您使房屋成为庇护所……。

如何使您的家成为圣所–简·亚历山大
20年前,我写了《家的精神–如何使家成为庇护所》(HarperCollins)。现在已对其进行了更新和重新发行,以庆祝其周年纪念,因为我认为现在它的信息比首次发布时更为必要。

我们的压力水平正呈指数级增长-去年,英国有140万人接受了NHS精神健康治疗,这只是冰山一角。

房屋仅仅是避难所;当我们走进门时,一个拥抱我们的地方

现在,我们比以往任何时候都更需要家园作为营养的场所。安全的地方,就像一个越来越不安全的世界。我们的祖先将房屋视为提供保护与和平的神圣空间。

我们也可以在家里重新唤起这种精神,将其变成可以治愈身体,安抚心灵,抚慰心灵的庇护所。

真正的房屋并不装满设计师家具。它不需要最新的厨房配件或“本季的颜色”。这只是一个避难所,一个庇护所,一个我们走进门时拥抱我们的地方。

本着家的精神,我建议了看家的新方法。有些人可能听起来有些异想天开,例如和您的家交谈以及玩弄家庭精神和神灵的想法。

有些非常明智-例如学习如何使您的房屋免受毒害。我还揭开了中国古代风水艺术和科学的神秘面纱,尽管将深奥和日常心理学相结合,却可以将和平,和谐,健康,财富甚至爱情带入您的生活。

但是,现在,让我们来看一下七种简单的方法,将幸福的庇护所带入您的家庭空间…

保护区秘诀1:发现自己的“理想之家”

因此,我们许多人跟随人群,以为我们的房屋必须与时尚融为一体,或者别人的想法,或者我们的自我告诉我们我们应该想要的。

好好看一下自己的空间-感觉如何?你会如何想有什么感觉?在“居家精神”中,我将指导您进行一系列练习和可视化操作,以召唤您的灵魂之家,但是您可以通过创建一个感官板来开始一个良好的开端。

滚动浏览图片 (实际上是在杂志中还是通过Pinterest或其他在线资源)。挑选那些真正对您的内心说话的人-那些让您的心脏动摇不定的东西,比如坠入爱河。
捕捉感觉寻找引起特定感觉而不是外观的图像。因此,它们可能涉及您的理想活动(烹饪,艺术,手工艺,社交,独自阅读,curl缩在角落中),甚至是抽象的图像,可以唤起诸如温暖,舒适,兴奋,宁静的感觉。用所有这些关于房屋的照片做一个标牌,每天陪伴他们。几天后,您可能会发现一些图像不再响了。很好–用可以让您的灵魂歌唱的替代它们。这是一种探索–人们经常在进行这项练习时会发现,他们认为自己想要的东西和他们真正想要的东西是两个截然不同的东西。
不要只考虑房屋的外观 ,现在就对房屋进行清点。闻起来如何?声音回荡吗?如果赤脚行走,感觉如何?你摸什么 现在考虑一下您的感官如何高兴?您将如何改变房屋的实际“感觉”?

保护区秘诀2:清理空间

数十年来,我一直在山顶上大喊着我们需要整理的信息。我当然不是在说您需要一个完全简约的房屋(除非,那当然是您的事),但是在一个满是烂摊子的房屋中很难感到放松和舒适。

在身体上,杂物会吸引灰尘,这可能会给您带来过敏;但是在心理上,杂物会激怒您的大脑–它使我们想起了我们需要做的所有事情,包括固定,完成,开始。一堆堆的东西导致我们的精力下降,因为我们的意识在潜意识里担心清除它们。

7种方法使您的家有一个很好的避难所客厅
确实,没有“正确”的方法来整理您认为合适的一切。我趋向于沉迷和清除(通常伴随着响亮的唤醒音乐)。其他人则喜欢采用柔和的方式,一次只处理一个抽屉。
避免陷阱。昂贵的错误通常可以出售,也可以将其卖给愿意爱他们但通常买不起的人,从而给自己一个温暖的光芒,并在此过程中获得主要的业力积分。您讨厌家人传家宝吗?询问家庭中是否有人想要他们,否则,放弃集体罪恶感并出售。生命真是太短暂了,无法与丑陋的花瓶或奶奶的红木梳妆台一起生活。

圣所的秘密#3:找到快乐的色彩

颜色是最终的情绪变化者,因此请不要小看它在家庭中的作用。几千年来,色彩一直被用来改变我们的情绪,甚至治愈疾病:现代研究开始证明这种古老的智慧。

考虑一下吸引您的颜色。通常可以帮助您考虑一下您喜欢的世界各地。您是否喜欢凉爽的斯堪迪语调,地中海的暖土颜料或加勒比海的流行色?

发挥色彩 不要害怕有点大胆-如果无法解决问题,您可以随时将其涂满颜色。在《家中的精神》中,我将探讨色谱,并提供大量现成的想法,但让我们看一下三个主要参与者……
黄色是纯净的阳光,就像太阳一样,它可以帮助消除抑郁症并提高能量水平。在家庭学习中使用它(它可以刺激大脑的左侧,从而有助于逻辑,判断和推理),并为厨房带来微笑。
绿色是最重要的平衡器。大自然的色彩–我们的眼睛不需要适应它,因此它可以帮助培养满足感和平静感。在客厅使用它可以缓解压力和超负荷。这是一种令人放心的颜色。
蓝色是最高的安抚奶嘴,是天空和海洋的颜色。在治疗中,它被用来使中枢神经系统平静,就像绿色一样,是一种很好的缓解压力的方法。考虑一下用于卧室和冥想空间的蓝色及其表亲,柔和的靛蓝和柔和的紫色色调。

保护区秘诀4:用自然香气舒缓

永远不要低估气味-它可以唤起人们情绪的深刻变化。我们的嗅觉受体与大脑最古老的边缘系统直接相连,因此我们对气味的反应非常深刻。

古希腊人认为,美丽的香气是与众神接触的一种手段,正确的香水当然可以使您的家感觉就像庙宇。

不要试图走综合路线。天然香料-花卉,草药,香薰油-是您获得嗅觉佳境的直接途径。


天然香薰蜡烛不仅可以提供美味的香气,还可以将火元素带入您的家中。我为伊拉的内在蜡烛(40英镑; ila-spa.com)着迷。扩散器也可以打孔。当前最受欢迎的产品包括Neal’s Yard有机镇定香薰芦苇扩散器(23.50英镑; nealsyardremedies.com)和ilapothecary的Good Vibe芦苇(45英镑; ilapothecary.com)–绝对走进我家的每个人都想知道我正在使用什么气味。
配制自己的精油混合物,以用于分散器和喷雾器。要制作喷雾器,请用纯净水填充家用植物喷雾器(约翰·刘易斯用宝石彩色玻璃做漂亮的喷雾器),然后每125毫升水中加15-20滴油。使用前摇动喷雾器以分散油。超级宁静的油包括罗马甘菊,乳香,檀香,香根草,杜松和菩提树花。

圣所的秘密5:带入自然界

千禧一代将1970年代的室内植物重新流行起来,因为他们转向植物和绿化,以实现“健康”或庇护。

皇家园艺协会表示,由于租房一代通常负担不起花园,因此他们转向易于使用的室内植物,以便为居家提供宁静,舒适的绿化植物。

实际上,室内植物是Instagram的坚定趋势,在#plantsofinstagram标签上贡献了超过220万个绿化帖子。

尽可能使您的家尽可能自然。

本着家的精神,我给出了如何清除不良化学物质和合成物的指南,但是您可以采取另一种方法–通过集中精力使所有事物尽可能接近自然。

将大自然带入您的房屋,模糊了我们与其他创造物之间的区别。它以最小的方式使我们与地球母亲和父亲天空以及地球上古老的神圣力量保持联系。

使用您家中的所有元素。木材是一个显而易见的选择,也就不足为奇了,我们当中的许多人选择揭露房屋的木板–我们正在下意识地寻求扎根,唤起森林的精神。同样地,我们暴露了砖砌和石板,渴望着土元素的坚固性和强度。如果您无法用这些材料进行装饰,则仍然可以将它们的能量带入您的房屋。美丽的鹅卵石和石头可以做成漂亮的镇纸和门挡。选择陶器和木碗,手工转动的容器。或直接沉浸在水晶的乐趣中-地球的神奇玩具胸部。
与绿党交朋友植物从来没有像现在这样受欢迎,您可以轻松地找到植物朋友来分享您的家。不过请谨慎选择-发现他们的好恶,并确保您可以给他们一个自己喜欢的家。令我非常悲伤的是,我发现我无法使处女蕨感到幸福,所以我坚持深深地原谅芦荟,三叶锦葵,和平百合和引人入胜的香蕉植物。
窗框可能是神奇的 -为厨房窗台选择烹饪草药。明年春天,在一个卧室窗台上种上夜香股票,烟草植物和薰衣草,以度过甜蜜的夏日夜晚。
扑灭它在远古时代,每个家庭都有一个壁炉–家庭的神圣心脏。火为住宅带来了生机勃勃的能量,因此,如果您的壁炉没有工作,请(安全地)使用蜡烛。

圣所的秘诀6:到处都摆小坛

您家里是否有完全属于您的空间?如果您与他人共用住房,那么您可能甚至没有角落,更不用说拥有自己的房间了。

为什么静修会在当今如此受欢迎?也许是因为它们为庇护提供了机会–时间和空间完全属于我们自己。

我们可以通过在自己的房屋中创建小的神圣空间来将这种感觉带回家。如果您没有冥想室的奢华,甚至没有客厅的书房或角落,您仍然可以在家里的祭坛上提供一个安静的地方。

自古以来,我们人类就建造了祭坛或神社。甚至我们的新石器时代的祖先也保持了某些地方的神圣性,并以无数的品质进行了投资。

您只需要一点空间-窗台,桌面,书桌的一部分,书架。我们许多人在不知不觉中用心爱的照片,蜡烛,鲜花制作了小祭坛。

唤起你坛上的所有元素。地球以某种有生命的东西而荣耀–植物或花朵,石头或水晶,木碗。空气以香为代表(如果您不喜欢香,则使用香薰炉)。用蜡烛点燃火。一碗水可以唤醒水。
添加任何喜欢的图像或雕像。可能是曼荼罗或圣像,还是神像。
将您的祭坛用作冥想或正念的场所。您可能希望将瑜伽垫或冥想垫放在附近。

圣所的秘密#7:沐浴时的幸福

永远不要忘记,房子里只有一个房间,您可以永远独自一人。如果您感到疲倦或只是需要时间去思考和思考,请长时间浸泡一下自己和自己的想法。

所有伟大的古代文化都具有感性沐浴和深情沐浴的传统。埃及人很喜欢它,就像罗马人一样,他们在埃及的原型上建造了著名的浴室。

中东澡堂是精神和身体焕发活力的地方,而在日本,洗澡已提升至一种崇拜的状态-一种冥想般的体验,可以净化身心。

圣所,风水,简·亚历山大
阁楼浴缸,舒适设计

尽可能使您的浴室成为一个干净的空间。如果与孩子们共享,则为他们的所有玩具放一个箱子(洗澡时,超级英雄或芭比娃娃在周围晃动,很难放松)。
烛光散发出柔和迷人的光芒(伪装比诱人的装饰少)。
用一些舒缓的音乐来设定心情。我是圣歌和咒语共有吸盘-现在我根据432“心脏”的频率(mainlining灵魂医学的轨道soulmedicine.me)
将您的洗浴时间变成轻松的习惯。在水中添加一些可爱的有机药水–我对Bayari的Beauty手工制作的美食着迷,因为,老实说,谁会爱上Sheba Bath Potion皇后(10英镑; beautybybayari.com)?如果您碰巧潜伏在周围,可以随意添加一些玫瑰花瓣。现在想像一下自己浸泡在所选择的水(清澈的山间游泳池,温暖的平静海洋,宁静的森林湖)中。这是个给自己一种友善而富有同情心的自我交谈的好时机,或者只是让您的思想徘徊。当您放出水时,请想象一下一切消极的事物,所有对您无益的事物都随着水而消失。
如果没有别的,那就给自己时间的礼物。不是几个小时,而是一个半小时左右的安静时间–仅适合您。

在您的房屋中找到最喜欢的位置,无论是舒适的扶手椅还是您的祭坛位置,然后给自己一点时间就可以了。

让和平降临在您身上,让您的家和灵魂有机会在无声的康复中共同努力。

    Self-isolation – 7 steps to make your home a feel good space
    Sharon Walker

    Posted March 26, 2020

    Now that we’re all spending the foreseeable future at home, feng shui pioneer Jane Alexander has tips on how to make your home a haven and refuge in this increasingly stressful world

    With the country (and most of the world) finding themselves stuck indoors due to the escalating coronavirus crisis, many of us are having to adjust to working from home, working out at home and being limited with how many times we can leave the house.

    All this self-isolation is enough to drive anyone crazy, especially if your home isn’t a feel-good space.

    But self-isolation may just be the best thing ever if you can make your home (or new work space) a refuge and sanctuary.

    Think candles, colours, lights and clear spaces – for some, those words alone are enough to make them feel calm and stress free.

    If you are craving sanctuary in the house you’ll be spending significant time in, feng shui pioneer Jane Alexander has some tips on how you can make your home a sanctuary….

    How to Make your Home a Sanctuary – Jane Alexander
    20 years ago, I wrote Spirit of the Home – How to Make your Home a Sanctuary (HarperCollins). It has now been updated and re-released to celebrate its anniversary as I believe its message is now even more necessary than when it was first published.

    Our levels of stress are rising exponentially – last year 1.4 million people were referred to NHS mental health therapy in the UK, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

    A home is simply a refuge; a place that hugs us when we walk through the door

    Now, more than ever, we need our homes to be places of nourishment; safe places in what feels like an increasingly unsafe world. Our ancestors honoured the home as a sacred space which provided protection and peace.

    We too can reawaken this sense of spirit on our home, turning it into a sanctuary which can heal the body, calm the mind and soothe the soul.

    A real home is not packed to the gills with designer furniture. It doesn’t demand the latest kitchen gadgets or ‘this season’s colours.’ It’s simply a refuge, a sanctuary, a place that hugs us when we walk through the door.

    In Spirit of the Home, I suggest new ways of looking at your home. Some may sound whimsical – such as talking to your home and playing with the ideas of household spirits and gods.

    Some are eminently sensible – such as learning how to make your home safe from toxicity. I also demystify the ancient Chinese art and science of feng shui which, though a mix of esoterica and everyday psychology, can attract peace, harmony, health, wealth and even love into your life.

    But, for now, let’s just look at seven simple ways to bring that blissful sense of sanctuary to your home space…

    Sanctuary secret #1: Discover your own ‘ideal home’
    So many of us follow the crowd, thinking our homes have to fit in with fashion, or what other people think, or what our egos tell us we ought to want.

    Take a good hard look at your own space – how does it make you feel? How would you like to feel? In Spirit of the Home, I take you through a series of exercises and visualisations to summon up your soul home but you can make a good start by creating a senses board.

    7-ways-to-make-your-home-a-feel-good-sanctuary
    Scroll through pictures (either physically in magazines or via Pinterest or other online sources). Pick out the ones that really speak to your gut, your heart – the ones that give your heart that little flutter, like falling in love.
    Capture a feeling Look for images that evoke a particular feel, rather than a look. So they could involve your ideal activities (cooking, art, crafting, socialising, reading alone, curled up in a nook) or even be abstract images that summon up feelings such as warmth, comfort, excitement, serenity. Make a board with all these pictures of home and spend time with it each day. You may well find that, after a few days, some images just don’t chime any more. That’s good – replace them with ones that make your soul sing. This is an exploration – often when people do this exercise they discover that what they think they want, and what they really want are two quite different things.
    Don’t just think about how your home looks Take an inventory of your home right now. How does it smell? What sounds echo through it? How does it feel if you walk through it in your bare feet? What do you touch? Now ponder how your senses might be delighted? How might you change the actual ‘sense’ of home?
    Sanctuary secret #2: Clear your space
    I’ve been shouting to the hilltops about our need to declutter for decades. I’m certainly not saying you need a totally minimalist home (unless, of course, that’s your thing) but it’s very hard to feel relaxed and comfortable in a home which is stuffed to the gills with mess.

    On a physical level clutter attracts dust which can give you allergies, but on a psychological level clutter irritates the mind – it reminds us of all the things we need to do, to fix, to finish, to start. Piles of stuff cause our energy to drop as subconsciously our minds worry about clearing them.

    7-ways-to-make-your-home-a-feel-good-sanctuary-living-room
    Truly, there is no ‘right’ way to declutter Do whatever feels right for you. I tend to plunge in and purge (usually to the accompaniment of loud rousing music). Others prefer to adopt a softly softly approach, tackling one drawer at a time.
    Avoid the traps. Expensive mistakes can usually be sold, or give them to someone who would love them but couldn’t usually afford them, giving yourself a warm glow and gaining major karma points in the process. Family heirlooms you loathe? Ask if anyone else in the family wants them and, if not, dump the collective guilt and sell them. Life really is too short to live with hideous vases or granny’s mahogany dresser.
    Sanctuary secret #3: Find your happy colours
    Colour is the ultimate mood shifter so never underestimate the power of it in your home. Colour has been used for millennia to shift our emotions and even to heal illness: modern research is starting to bear out this ancient wisdom.

    Think about the colours that draw you in. Often it can help to think about the places you love around the world. Are you drawn to cool calm Scandi tones, the warm earth-based pigments of the Mediterranean, or the colour pops of the Caribbean?

    7-ways-to-make-your-home-a-feel-good-sanctuary-colourful-bedroom
    Play with colour Don’t be scared to be a bit bold – if it doesn’t work out you can always paint it over. In Spirit of the Home, I go right through the colour spectrum and also offer plenty of off-the-wall ideas but let’s look at three major players…
    Yellow is pure sunlight and, just like the sun, it can help banish depression and raise energy levels. Use it in home studies (it stimulates the left side of the brain so helps with logic, judgment and reasoning) and to bring a smile to kitchens.
    Green is the great balancer; the colour of nature – our eyes don’t need to adjust to it so it can help foster contentment and calm. Use it in living rooms to ease stress and overload. It’s a deeply reassuring colour.
    Blue is the supreme soother, the colour of the sky and sea. In therapy it’s used to calm the central nervous system and, like green, is a great stress reliever. Think about shades of blue and its cousins, soft indigo and gentle tones of violet for bedrooms and meditation spaces.
    Sanctuary secret #4: Soothe with natural scents
    Never underestimate scent – it can evoke profound shifts in mood. Our olfactory receptors are directly connected to the limbic system, the most ancient part of our brains, so we react to scents at a deeply primal level.

    The ancient Greeks believed that beautiful scents were a means of contacting the gods and the right perfume can certainly make your home feel tantamount to a temple.

    Don’t be tempted to go the synthetic route. Natural fragrances – flowers, herbs, aromatherapy oils – are your direct route to olfactory nirvana.

    7-ways-to-make-your-home-a-feel-good-sanctuary-candles
    Naturally scented candles not only provide delicious scent but also bring the fire element into your home. I’m besotted with ila’s Inner Peace candle (£40; ila-spa.com). Diffusers can also pack a punch. Current favourites include Neal’s Yard Organic Calming Aromatherapy Reed Diffuser (£23.50; nealsyardremedies.com) and ilapothecary’s Good Vibe Reeds (£45; ilapothecary.com) – absolutely everyone who walks into my home wants to know what scent I’m using.
    Make up your own essential oil blends to use in diffusers and misters. To make a mister, fill a house plant mister (John Lewis do pretty ones in jewel coloured glass) with purified water and add around 15-20 drops of oil to every 125ml of water. Shake the mister before use to disperse the oil. Super-serene oils include Roman chamomile, frankincense, sandalwood, vetiver, juniper and linden blossom.
    Sanctuary secret #5: Bring in the natural world
    Millennials have brought 1970s houseplants back into fashion as they turn to plants and greenery as a form of achieving ‘wellness’ or sanctuary.

    The Royal Horticultural Society has said that as the renting generation often cannot afford gardens, they are turning to easy-to-rear house plants in order to fill their homes with calming, feel-good greenery.

    In fact, house plants are a firm Instagram trend, contributing to over 2.2 million posts of greenery to the hashtag #plantsofinstagram.

    As far as possible, make your home as natural as possible.

    In Spirit of the Home, I give guidelines on ridding your home of unpleasant chemicals and synthetics but you can work on this the other way around – by concentrating on keeping everything as close to nature as possible.

    Bringing nature into your home blurs the distinctions between us and the rest of creation. It puts us in touch, in the tiniest of ways, with Mother Earth and Father Sky, with the old sacred pull of the planet.

    7-ways-to-make-your-home-a-feel-good-sanctuary-nature
    Use all the elements in your home. Wood is an obvious choice and it’s no wonder so many of us choose to uncover the boards of our homes – we’re subconsciously seeking to ground ourselves, to evoke the spirit of the forests. Equally we expose brickwork and flagstones, yearning for the solidity and strength of the earth element. If you can’t decorate with these materials, you can still bring their energy into your home. Beautiful pebbles and stones make lovely paperweights and door stops. Choose earthenware and wooden bowls, hand-turned vessels. Or plunge headlong into the delights of crystals – the earth’s magic toy-chest.
    Make friends with greens Plants have never been so popular and you can easily find plant-friends to share your home. Choose carefully though – discover their likes and dislikes and make sure you can give them a home they love. I have discovered, to my intense sadness, that I just can’t make maidenhair ferns happy so I stick to deeply forgiving aloe vera, sanseviera, peace lilies and dramatic banana plants.
    Window boxes can be magical – choose culinary herbs for your kitchen windowsill. Next spring, plant up a bedroom window box with night-scented stocks, tobacco plants and lavender for sweet summer nights.
    Fire it up In ancient times, every home had a hearth – the sacred heart of the home. Fire brings a lively energy to the home so, if you don’t have a working hearth, use candles (safely).
    Sanctuary secret #6: Make little altars everywhere
    Do you have a space in your home that is entirely yours? If you share your home it’s likely you might not even have a corner, let alone a room of one’s own.

    Why are retreats so incredibly popular these days? Maybe it’s because they offer a chance for sanctuary – time and space to be totally ourselves.

    We can take that feeling home by creating small sacred spaces in our own homes. If you don’t have the luxury of a meditation room, or even a study or nook in the living room, you can still provide a place of stillness with a home altar.

    7-ways-to-make-your-home-a-feel-good-sanctuary-study
    We humans have built altars or shrines since the beginning of time. Even our Neolithic ancestors kept certain places sacred and invested them with a numinous quality.

    You only need a little space – a window ledge, a table top, part of your desk, a bookshelf. Many of us unconsciously create little altars with beloved photographs, a candle, flowers.

    Evoke all the elements on your altar. Earth is honoured with something living – a plant or flowers, a stone or crystals, a wooden bowl. Air is represented by incense (if you don’t like incense use an aromatherapy burner). Fire is brought in with a candle. Water can be evoked with a bowl of water.
    Add any favourite images or statues. A mandala or icon maybe, or a statue of a deity.
    Use your altar as a spot for meditation or mindfulness. You might like to keep your yoga mat or meditation cushion nearby.
    Sanctuary secret #7: Bathtime bliss
    Never forget that there is one room in the house in which you can always be alone. If you’re feeling frazzled or simply need time to ponder and muse, take yourself and your thoughts for a long soak.

    All the great ancient cultures have a tradition of sensual and soulful bathing. The Egyptians adored it, as did the Romans who built their famous baths on Egyptian prototypes.

    The Middle Eastern hammam is a place of spiritual and physical rejuvenation while in Japan, bathing is elevated to the status of a cult – a meditative experience that cleanses mind as much as body.

    sanctuary, Feng shui, jane alexander
    Loft bath with cozy design

    Make your bathroom a clear space as far as possible. If you share it with children, have a box for all their toys (a bath with superheroes or Barbies bobbing around is hardly relaxing).
    Candlelight gives a soft and flattering glow (and disguises less than appealing décor).
    Set the mood with some soothing music. I’m a total sucker for chants and mantras – right now I’m mainlining Soul Medicine’s tracks based on the 432 ‘heart’ frequency (soulmedicine.me)
    Turn your bathtime into a relaxing ritual. Add some lovely organic potions to the water – I am entranced by the hand-made delights from Beauty by Bayari because, quite honestly, who wouldn’t love something named Queen of Sheba Bath Potion (£10; beautybybayari.com)? Feel free to add some rose petals if you happen to have any lurking around. Now visualise yourself soaking in your choice of water (clear mountain pool, warm calm ocean, serene forest lake). It’s a great time to give yourself some kind and compassionate self-talk, or simply let your mind wander. As you let the water out, imagine everything negative, everything that doesn’t serve you disappearing with the water.
    If nothing else, just give yourself the gift of time. Not hours and hours of it, but the odd quiet half hour or so – just for you.

    Find that favourite spot in your house, be it a comfy armchair or your altar spot, and give yourself time simply to be.

    Allow the peace to fall upon you and give your home and soul the chance to work together in a silent healing.
