If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you’ll know that I sort of fell into life coaching through the back door.
I was an interior designer, you see! I was all about the transformative powers of your home.
But I still deeply believe in that idea. For me, it’s incredibly easy to see the energetics of someone while I’m in their home.
Your home is deeply personal. It’s a literal extension of you–and that means that if you’re experiencing mental chaos or confusion, it’s very likely that your home is too.
But even though I can read your space like your temperature on a thermometer, there’s an even better thing we can do with this concept.
Just like you influence your space, your space can also influence YOU.
There’s a saying I love which I absolutely believe to be true:
I know that when you first hear that it’s awfully depressing! No one wants to be called out on the food they put in their body, the clothes they have stashed in the closet or the way their dining room table looks! But it really is all connected.
Look at it this way: living in chaos, disorganization or even dirtiness is a symptom of low self-worth.
But if you dare to start loving yourself, you’ll see that you deserve so much more than that!
You also deserve more than just living on McDonald’s, not exercising or dressing like a total shlumpadinka! (And deep down inside you know it!)
Taking control of your space can literally make you feel better. This one “small” step can have a literal ripple effect on your entire life. And it can help to make calling in the things you really want a lot easier too!
A home that makes you feel good and reflects the things you want in life is actually a powerful tool for manifestation.
So today I wanted to share a simple three-step process for how to manifest through using your home:
Manifest Your Dreams Using Your Home: The 3-Step Process
1. Clear Your Clutter
It might not be the most obvious manifesting tool but think about it: the things in your home have energy, just like you and me. So clearing away the things that you no longer use or that remind you of not-so-stellar moments are great candidates for this energetic clearing.
The problem with clutter is that it is insidious. We live in consumer culture and we’re expected to buy, buy, buy to keep up our seasonal wardrobe and have a stylish home. But there’s not nearly as much talk about getting rid of the stuff that doesn’t serve you anymore!
Of course, you can’t chase trend after trend and retain a perfectly organized space. The space will always run out at some point (no matter how big a closet you manage to buy!) So clearing clutter should just be part of your routine, like spring cleaning or getting your space ready for the holidays.
2. Clear The Energy
Now that we’ve cleared out the old clutter and refreshed our space energetically, it’s time to do some energy spring cleaning! No matter how much clutter you’ve cleared it’s still important to conduct a space clearing as well. Basically, this is just about getting rid of any lingering negative energy so you can be sure your space is only calling in what’s best for you.
There are many different ways to approach space clearing. I have a whole post right here about how to energetically cleanse your space but the four main methods are through smoke, salt or sound. I’ll leave it up to you on what method works best for you! Just be sure to pick one and actually do it.
3. Invoke Your Intention
Confession: I was never really one to mess around with vision boards. But it’s not that I don’t see the value. I just don’t love putting up a random board of clippings for all the world to see!
Fortunately, you can do the exact same thing for your manifesting without a pile of old magazines. Your home can really be used as one giant vision board, with just a few little tweaks. (And no one will be any the wiser!)
I love to incorporate a few elements that invoke my current intentions into my space. That way I’m getting the visual reminder of what I’m currently working on but it also blends in beautifully with the rest of the space.
Think about what you’re calling in and see what you can come up with! Looking for a relationship? Try placing some pictures of happy couples in your space. Manifesting more money? Then incorporate the colors green or gold. There aren’t really any rules here so get creative and go with what speaks to you!
I hope this post inspires you to both care for your home deeply as an extension of you and to see the power it can bring to your manifesting routine!
Thank you so much for reading! As always, I’d love to hear how it goes for you so let me know in the comments. ????
