Raise Your Vibe & Enhance Space with ART
RAISE YOUR VIBRATION WITH ART, PRACTICAL FENG SHUI
Beauty is healing because it feeds the soul. The soul in turn feeds the body, helping us stay healthy while lighting our best path forward. Authentic beauty is a quality of energy that allows us to trust the deeper waves of life as they meet us wherever we are. We're prompted onward. Creation and especially the creation of ART is a process of grounding the mystical. The end result can bring us face-to-face with our essence, the truth of who we are, and why we're here. ART and the process of its creation makes for a stronger connection to what truly matters.
Imagine a world where cultivating qualities of truth was high-priority on every level. Many cultures at their core recognize, value and incorporate practices that do this. One that is particularly fitting here is Feng Shui. Now a household word, Feng Shui is an ancient far eastern practice that teaches us how to optimize our space for health, prosperity and wellbeing. Many indigenous cultures around the world understand the interdependence of all things, that everything has life-force, and must be honored to maintain the proper balance of relationships with people, animals, plants, places and all things.
Next to being out in nature, our personal space, home-and-haven, is the closest thing we have to create with these principals in mind. Our space can be peaceful, lively, fun, playful, intimate, social, beautiful and everything we want it to be. Foundational to our wellbeing, step one includes clearing out what no longer resonates. bringing in the new and raising the vibration of our space is step two. Maintaining healthy frequency inside-and-out starts at home and what we create within the walls of our environment.
THE SECRET: EVEN IF YOU'RE NOT ARTISTICALLY CREATIVE, YOU'RE CREATING WITH THE MIND OF YOUR ENVIRONMENT (THINGS IN YOUR SPACE) ALL THE TIME. CHOOSE WHAT SUPPORTS YOU AND LET GO OF THE REST.
At the time of this writing June 2020, while self-quarantine is still a thing, there's never been a better time to notice what's in our personal space and how we feel about it. Furniture, artwork, photos, books, papers, gifted items, pillows, clothing, not to mention what we put our attention on through social media and TV. All of it makes an impression that can negatively affect us. It's time to be more intentional about what lands in our environment and realize when it's time to edit. It's not hard to do.
Refresh and redecorate with positive energy. Start with positive intention and go from there. One small step is all it takes. Then, add artwork that makes your heart happy. Words like uplifted, bright, clear, inspired, safe, centered, good, and happy should come to mind. Beautiful artwork, photos, posters, cherished items that speak to you can make a world of difference. As you remove the things that convey negative messages, add in things that have a positive spin.
When it comes to re-creating decor, choose artwork and items that uplift you. Pay attention to how you feel and keep a journal and/or picture reference as you go. Feel free to get in touch if you have questions or would like assistance in refreshing and arranging your space. The process should be fun and provide you with something you enjoy for a long time to come.
