The end of winter is the perfect time for a physical and energetic shake up.
To assess the existing situation, to set new goals and start moving towards them are essential from time to time.
Your home can support this process all the way, and help you make your dreams come true.
How does your home make you feel? Overwhelmed? Guilty? Stuck?
Stop all activities, take a deep breath, tune in, listen, look around. Admit if changes are necessary. Take inventory. What would be the most beneficial for you to take care of now?
Plan. See the results vividly in your mind’s eye. You may need to modify the plan here and there, but don’t feel bad, while you are making progress.
Summon your strength, perseverance, wisdom, and help from others if needed.
Be excited for the opportunity to renew, to start afresh, to be able to manifest something new.
Declutter, clean, repair, rearrange
Open your place and yourself to fresh energies, vitality, so you can experience healthy growth and happiness in all life areas.
Be ruthless when getting rid of dirt, mess, junk, and stagnating energetic debris.
Keep only what is meaningful, heartwarming, cherished.
Reconsider your furniture layouts and existing storage. You may need to create multipurpose areas -taking into consideration your family’s needs- and come up with smarter solutions.
Functional and visually pleasing: these are the major goals.

Infuse with color
Color changes how we experience the atmosphere of a certain space.
Color is life force.
Natural colors -whites, beige, yellows, greens, greys, browns, clays, taupe, navy blue, black- are visually relaxing.
This year, with its inevitable healing power, green is super fashionable for interiors. It reconnects us with nature.
You can pick lighter colors for a spacious, fresh feeling, and darker ones for an intense, cozy vibe. Did you go too dark with your color scheme for fall and winter?
Choose uplifting colors for spring, and make sure your choices don’t overwhelm your home (and you). Have fun picking accent colors for decorative objects. They are easy to swap.
To boost the Health and Balance area of a space with Feng Shui:
Apply yellow and earth tones.
Sunlight and fresh air
Utilize the healing power of natural light to boost your energy, improve your circulation, make you productive, and even balance your hormones.
Keep the air purified by installing good ventilation, vacuum cleaning regularly, keeping plants and salt lamps around, lighting beeswax candles, using essential oils.

Playing high vibrational music, nature sounds, sounding windchimes are not only relaxing, but help with breaking down energetic blocks, and attracting a flow of luck into your life.
Let go of negative self-talk.
Set up a manageable routine. Create daily practices that help you reach balance. (Discipline is not a bad word.)
Nurture yourself for a healthy body-mind-spirit.
Step out of your comfort zone and make an effort daily. No excuses.
Take a leap of faith.
Get your creative juices flowing.
Have an idea-fest every day… Just because.
To enhance the Personal Growth area of a space with Feng Shui:
Use green, blue, black.
Raise your vibe
YOU are a key vibrational factor in your environment.
Express gratitude every day.
Breathe consciously, practice yoga/tai-chi/qigong, exercise, dance, sing, laugh to shift your energy.
Eat a plant-based, colorful diet, and drink pure water to get in synch with higher vibrations.
Regain balance with the help of bodywork.
Be in the flow by finding joy in creative activities and connecting with like-minded people.
Surround yourself with life, like lush plants.
Ground yourself to be calm, collected, clear, focused, intuitive.
Visualize good things coming your way and being able to make the best of them.
Meet the NOW moment: this is your life. There is nothing more exciting than this moment pulsating with endless possibilities. Grab it!
