Home is truly where the heart is so make sure your home is a sanctuary which reflects the true you through décor, serenity and what you allow into your home. Make you’re your home speaks volumes about YOU. This can be accomplished no matter what your budget or where you live. Yes, no matter what your budget or where live you can accomplish this and then upgrade as your abundance increases. Let’s get started!

Part I ~ The Basics

~ Deep Cleaning: Let’s start with a deep old fashion cleaning. Yes, baseboards, blinds, floors, walls, carpet shampooed and all. I mean the whole nine yards and everything.

~ Décor: Decorate your home within your budget. Get something new for each room whether it be a vase or a sofa. Select a color palate for your home. Choose a base color for the entire home and then rotate your accent color(s) throughout the home. Ex: My base color is chocolate and my accent colors are as follows:

  • Passion Red {December, January & February}
  • Kelly Green {March, April & May}
  • Turquoise & Bright Yellow {June, July & August}
  • Burnt Orange & Golden Yellow {September, October & December}

~ Serenity: Set up peaceful symbols throughout you home. This can range from childhood pictures to table top fountains to religious books to a mediation area or library.

~ Not Allowed In Your Home: Established guidelines of what is and is not allowed in your home. Ex: I do not allow shoes in my home. They are requested to be taken off in the entry way. Why? For several reasons such as the following:

  • They are dirty. Shoes walk on the ground where there is spit, poop, mud etc…
  • This practice keeps the floors and carpet cleaner without all the effort and they last longer.
  • For some it is a religious or culture preference and practice.

The above are just a few guidelines I have used through the years. Feel free to take some and add some along your journey. Also, you may want to incorporate Feng Shui. There are two books you should explore by author Lillian Too to incorporate Feng Shui. They are Lillian Too’s Easy To Use Feng Shui & The Fundamentals of Feng Shui. Feng Shi is an ancient art and science developed over 3,000 years ago in China. It is a complex body of knowledge which reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for those inhabiting it.

Feng means wind and Shui means water. In Chinese culture wind and water are associated with good health, thus good Feng Shui came to mean good fortune, while bad Feng Shui means bad luck, or misfortune. Simply stated it enhances your home and relationships to your wellbeing and career.

Happy Sanctuary Saturday!
