Keeping a clean home is vital to not only your physical health but your emotional and mental one as well. You wouldn’t imagine the benefits that can come from keeping a clean space – Enlighten Me lists several, including stress relief and avoidance of pest infestations.
But while cleaning is a near-given to reduce stress and creating a positive environment, how can you increase the energetic vibration of your home, ridding yourself of negative vibes in the process?
Why would you want to spend your time doing such a thing anyway? Wouldn’t you be much better off focussed on relaxing?
Well, by raising the amount of positive vibrations in your home, relaxation will come naturally. You’ll find that arguments happen less and you’ll genuinely feel a lot lighter.
On that note, here are a few ways you can achieve these things by raising the vibration in your home.
Sage is a plant native to the Mediterranean region that has benefits in culinary purposes, as we’ve mentioned in the past. But did you know you can also burn sticks made of the stuff to invite positivity into your home? Start burning it and wave it around as you walk through your house. Let the smell relax you and think positive thoughts.
It’s a good idea to take a walk through your house every now and again, looking at things and figuring out if you really need them.
Chances are, if you’re like me, you spend a lot of time on eBay buying things that wind up sitting in drawers and on your desk. It’s very therapeutic to donate such items as you’ll get a combination of the satisfaction that comes from helping others, giving and decluttering your space.
GET A HIMALAYAN SALT LAMP
We’ve spoken about Himalayan salt lamps in the past but I’ll say it again – get one.
Himalayan salt is some of the purest salt you can buy. Not only is it incredibly healthy for you to eat – in lamp form, it cleanses and removes odors from the air in your home as well.
The lamps also give off negative ion particles, which rid your space of positive ions (those are the ones you don’t want).
Plus, they look pretty cool.
SING HAPPY SONGS
As a songwriter, I’m obviously a big believer in the power of music. But you don’t have to be serious about music to reap these benefits. You don’t even have to technically call it singing if you don’t want to – just open your mouth and make sounds that make you happy. Put on your favourite song and belt along like no one’s listening.
Not only will it de-stress you; it’ll introduce positive vibes into your space as well.
Meditation works wonders for the human brain, as we’ve covered in the past. It’s also a great way to invite positive energy into your home. Try something like the Transcendental Meditation if you’re not sure where to start.

OPEN THOSE BLINDS
Sunlight is a wonderful thing. Don’t block it out with those heavy curtains or blinds – open up your window and let the fresh air and sun fill your space, bringing positive, natural energy with it.
