When you walk into your bedroom can you feel the stress of the day melt away? Ahhh….or, does the energy in your bedroom feel just as tense as the stress in your body? If so, let’s change that, immediately.
Shift the energy in your bedroom to evoke relaxation
Sneaky clutter hiding under your bed, on the floor and on top of surface areas can actually make it harder to relax. Even if it appears that some people can easily sleep in a cluttered bedroom, I’m not buying it. I have worked for too many overwhelmed, sleep-deprived mamas to believe that you can get an amazing restful sleep when you are surrounded by clutter. Yes, you may zonk-out as soon as your head hits the pillow, but that doesn’t mean you are actually getting quality sleep.
The energy surrounding you may be invisible, but it is not imaginary. Clutter has a tendency to be a magnet for very stale and/or chaotic energy. When the energy in your bedroom isn’t inline with how you want to feel (relaxed, calm, peaceful, joyful, romantic, etc) you can’t fully be at peace. Your bedroom is the last room you see at night and the first room you see in the morning which means the energy in your bedroom can have an affect on your mood and set the tone for your day (whether you realize it or not).
The quickest and most efficient way shift the energy in your bedroom is to get rid of anything that is no longer serving you. If you aren’t using it or don’t love it, get rid of it. Clothes that don’t fit, broken trinkets, unmatched socks, hole-y underwear — get rid of it all. I recommend clearing anything out, from under your bed so that positive energy can flow up and around you as you sleep. If you are having issues sleeping or relaxing while laying in bed, take a peek. What’s hiding under there?
Dirt and grime also hang onto stagnant energy. Plus, breathing in dirty air makes it harder to breathe. Simply dusting off your bedside table/nightstand is going to get the positive, restful energy flowing in your bedroom. You can also use an air purifier to keep dust particles under control, in between dustings.
Move things around
After clearing out anything with stagnant, stale and chaotic energy try move some things around, if it feels right. I have been known to shift a book or candle just and inch because it “felt better”. Take a look at your bedroom and shuffle things around to see if it makes you feel better. This is all about how you feel. You could move a favorite painting closer to your line-of-sight so you can see it as soon as you open your eyes in the morning. Place an inspirational book or framed quote on your nightstand so you see it before you turn the lights out at night. Find what feels good.
Add in the good stuff
Add in home elements such as colors, textures and even scents that help you tap into your desired feelings. Lavender and jasmine are great scents to add into a bedroom. Lavender is proven to induce restfulness and jasmine has a feminine, romantic quality. We will be exploring more of these home elements during our Loving Your Home Club meetings. If you are a VIP member, I will see you each Thursday at 11am(CST). If you are not a VIP (All the Love) member, you can upgrade your membership here.
Have fun shifting the energy in your bedroom and loving your home.
