From our home, our homes, we can transform our lives. Keeping a clean vessel and a clean space around us has more significance than it seems. Along the years, I have been finding a balance between respecting my degree of sensitivity and the stages of my body and mind processes. There are chapters in life when it becomes a part of the process to let go of physical, material and energetic clutter.
Space of living
Intuitively, the majority of us can tune into feng-shui and vatsu general rules (like facing the door of the office) and pay attention on how energy flows in a room. With certain decisions and placements of objects, we may accidentally maximize negative (or positive) effects and activate the environnement in some sorts of ways. Is the energy able to pursue its course freely in the space ? Is the energy being interrupted in its natural course ? Can we make the space around us more harmonious ? Can we rise its vibration? How can we call for the support of nature indoor, despite the fact our structures and corners are so square? Realisations come layer by layer and are directly linked to our inner processes. Some houses are architecturally gorgeous, yet somehow, something feels off. It’s the sign of a disbalance of life energy. Whenever I smudge, preferably with dried herbs I collect myself or with quality encenses that have preferably been handed with care, it’s the intention and the circular motion I do it with that I feel matter the most. We can take the dead leaves from the bottom of the plants that grow around us (as mugworrt), dry them and burn them, the smoke arising being a bridge with the spirit world.
Fasted states are often directly linked to a need to simplify the space around us and in general, our lives. First, these processes give a lot of extra time each day to reevaluate all the little details in our lives. It can be time to go through every single object, to give away, to sell things, to change furniture, to modify the decoration and vibration of the rooms we live in. All of a sudden, the massive furniture that had been there for 15 years will suddenly be too much and might feel oppressive. The space that is being freed is then available to be allowed for new daily allies: plants, cristals, tarot decks, dried herbs from the garden, resins, palo santo, encens, essential oil diffusors, bells, and free space ready to be used. During each of my fasts, I went a step closer to nature each time: welcoming plants in the house, working in the garden, planting fruit trees and herbs. Sometimes, moving objects and decoration in some areas of the house (for example a printed photo with a wintery vibe) or investing new energy in a dormant space (a new autel on the wall of one corner of the house) can be directly linked to a consequent shift in life. The action in the material world is also indicating that something is ready to be released or has already been. Are there any dormant spaces in the space I live in? Can they be transformed into something else, something alive and useful? There is a deep alchemy happening with the process of upgrading the space around us.
Cosmetics and skin products
The rise of awareness also includes choosing the cleanest versions of soaps and cosmetics. The chemicals we come into contact with every day often contain chemical agents that are aggressive and harmful to our skin although they are invisible. We absorb a lot of things through our skin and our scalp. Most organic cosmetics still contain glycerin (that may comes from a vegetal or animal source) and other complex substances that interfere with our natural biofield. The protective oil film on our skin is necessary for us to be able to connect to our environnement and for us to be able to connect with the Earth field. Scrubbing ourselves with soaps that leave a glycerin plastic film on the skin does affect our magnetic field. Reading stickers and choosing the most simple list of ingredients does make a difference (for example with traditional alep soaps). By releasing complexity and inversion, by getting closer to Creation, we might even want to create our own face and body oils, shampoo (this has been the toughest one for me so far), teeth oil, sun and after sun creams and daily cleaning products with apple cider vinegar in which lemon and orange peels have been soaked for a week or two, baking soda, lemon juice and essential oils (bergamot and the citrus family) make a good base. This is the opportunity to create our own liquid hand soap (with these same ingredients and a bit of black soap or pure Marseille soap), our own dishwashing liquid, cleaning spray or laundry detergent.
This cleansing process nowadays has extended to the virtual world, of course, with online subscriptions, weither on social media or in newsletters, as they are directly linked to our daily vital force, our time and our energy. Computers and phones as well can accumulate quite a bit of clutter. The fact that my phone has a very limited space of memory has turned into a blessing as I don’t keep data on there and am always brought back to a minimalistic use. Unsubscribing has assisted me in releasing much energy in my life, keeping only what does serve. Indeed, the term ‘subscribe’ is rooted in the idea of agreeing to and registering with a non living entity. It becomes clear how online subscriptions have an impact on many different levels in our lives. Not only they occupy space in our minds but they also tie us up in many invisible ways to non living entities. Allowing myself to unsubscribe, unfollow and restrain has definitely been helping me releasing space in my life and reclaiming some inner freedom.
And above all, what matters is to remain in a constructive dynamic, protect oneselves from discourses of fears while taking the lead in reclaiming our independence and sovereignty. We are the ones creating the world of today and the world of tomorrow. We are beings of infinite power.
