Good luck is a residue of preparation.—Jack Youngblood
Life can be unpredictable at times, but in those instances, it would be best always to be prepared. Like having to save up enough for the rainy days; collecting positivity and good energy can be a lifestyle that you can acquire to help you live a happier life. It may sound clichéd, but the truth is this: positive attracts positive. It is therefore very important that we change our way of thinking and try to have a more enthusiastic attitude and zeal in life: smile, get out of your comfort zone, talk to people, listen to more joyful songs, and refrain from thinking negative thoughts. If you are a positive person, then half the battle has already been won. It's positivity that wins the vote and the hearts of people.
Today, we have put together ideas from our professionals to show you some helpful ideas on how to get positive energy, starting from the elements that you can acquire at home. We have brought together these 10 simple tips that will enable you to attract positive energies or neutralise the negative.
It's never too late to change, and there is no harm in trying. Let's do it!
Every day you should open the windows of your house, even if it's five minutes and let the sunlight in because it is the main source of life. Spaces with dark areas, tend to have dense and heavy energy.
You know those Lucky Cat charms with the paw moving back and forth? Well, they say it attracts luck and fortune, but more than that, we all know that animals always make excellent companions. They provide us with love and affection. They absorb bad energies and turn them into positive energy. On the other hand, stroking or petting them also reduces stress levels.
Aloe vera is known for its healing properties; it has also been used for many medicinal purposes throughout the years. Moreover, it is ideal to have at home not only because it is decorative, but also because it absorbs negative energies and helps purify the air.
As for choosing the right plants for your home, you can't go wrong with bamboo! Plants always attract positive energy and bamboo specifically attract success and prosperity and is much used in the philosophy of Feng Shui. It is believed to have favourable energy since it symbolises the prosperous union between two elements: water and wood.
If you have to choose a candle colour to have at home, opt for the white candles, as these attract good energies. In addition, lighting candles at home creates a pleasant and relaxing atmosphere.
The salt that we normally use in the kitchen is a very important element to protect you from bad energy. Putting salt around the house will keep out envy and any other kinds of bad feeling from peers.
In addition, if you are moving from your home, to live in a new space (which has already been inhabited), drop a few pinches of salt in all corners of the rooms. It will absorb the bad energies of the ancient residents. Forty-eight hours later, you just have to vacuum and throw it away.
A clean house is a house with good energy. Do not have broken furniture or broken pieces. Keep your space as neat and clean as possible to restore balance and good energy.
Have a few crystals in your home, such as Selenite, transparent quartz, black tourmaline or onyx, as these will help ward off bad luck.
In various religions and philosophies, water is associated with emotions. In this sense, a fountain in a garden or even on a balcony will control and balance your emotions. Allowing our actions to be driven by emotion can sometimes be detrimental; likewise, having sound judgement is always important for living a happy life.
Having natural flowers or plants in the house are great for purifying the environment and raising the mood! They will add vibrance to any area, whether it is a living room or a bathroom.
While buying or arranging artefacts can help to increase the positive energy in your home, you should also take measure to keep the energy or refresh it every once in a way to increase its effect. One way to do this by connecting the indoors with the outdoors. Designing your house with sliding doors that connect with nature seamlessly is the best way to achieve this.
If you live in an apartment, besides using natural materials such as wood and stone that reflect nature indirectly, designing indoor gardens or green walls are an excellent option for infusing positive energy in the interiors. You can go a step further and choose indoor plants with air-cleansing properties to refresh the stale air and give a boost of energy to your home interiors
