We are always willing to grow. This is why we are constantly attracted to environments that can “teach” us what we need at a particular time.
The home we choose provides us with what we need to progress along our personal journey. Even if it may seem to lack harmony or be unpleasant sometime, there are never wrong homes: each home offers unique opportunities for personal and spiritual growth.
What home means to you
To better understand the “lesson(s)” your home is teaching you, the first thing you need to do is to clarify with yourself what ‘home’ means to you.
For many people, home is the place where they sleep at night; for other people, home is the place where they were born and grew up. To others, home is the place where you can relax, leaving everything else outside the door. For some people, the idea of home can be linked to the traditions, religion or heritage of a particular culture and feel at home where they are surrounded with things that symbolize those associations.
Understanding the meaning of home helps us understand why we are attracted to particular homes or places.
The objects in your environment influence you
The objects in your environment deeply influence you in three different ways:
1. The symbolisms in the things that you choose for your home reinforce your identity, either positively or negatively.
2. The objects in your home reveal aspects of your innermost self and, therefore, they can help you understand your deepest desires or fears.
2. Your home can become a vehicle to express your potential.
Today I will examine the first way objects in your environment affect you.
Objects as symbols of your identity
Your home is filled with metaphors of your life, even if you are unaware of them. The things surrounding you in your house constantly remind you who you are, directing you towards old patterns of behaviour. Subconscious beliefs are deep-seated and you are often unaware of them.
Your environment doesn’t lie. Go around your house and look at the objects you have placed there as if you were entering your house for the first time. What do they tell you about yourself?
You can use the objects in your environment to release limiting beliefs about yourself and the world. Make changes in your home so that it becomes a powerful affirmation of what you want to become and of what you want to attract into your life.
This method is much stronger and powerful than writing or speaking affirmations because you are immersed in metaphors that constantly support you in becoming what you want to be or attracting what you desire.
It has been shown that spending ten minutes a day writing an affirmation like “I am now attracting abundance and prosperity into my life” has a positive effect in reprogramming your subconscious mind. However, if you create an environment around you that constantly speaks of abundance and prosperity, this idea will be rooted in your subconscious mind day and night.
You may be affirming that you are prosperous because this is what you want to attract into your life. However, if your home is very plain, with little furniture, your walls are painted in dull cream or grey, the energy feels austere, your environment speaks of little resources and this is what you will attract into your life.
In this case you should discover what prosperity means to you and find ways to implement this in your home. So for instance, you may associate prosperity to the color red or gold. In this case, adding red and golden cushions on your sofa may help create a feeling of opulence.
So, what is your home saying to you? Does it reflect what you want to be or what you want in your life? Has this inspired to make changes in your environment so that it can support you in your life/professional journey?
