The pollution from, vehicles, factories, and other sources are filling our lungs with harmful dust and chemicals that are causing various kind of health problems.

    ‘Home sweet Home’, as is often referred, is the ultimate place where one can find peace, solace, happiness and satisfaction. In order to make our homes so, it is essential to keep in mind small details which can make it a heaven.

    how to bring positive energy into your homes

    In order to bring in positive energy, the foremost important thing which one should bear in mind is that it should be as comfortable as possible.

    The house we live in should have a spacious look. Even if it is small, one can give it a spacious look by keeping only the essential items and discarding the less used or useless ones.

    Lighting is another important aspect which needs to be considered. Darkness can give you a depressed feeling while good natural or artificial light instills not only brightness in ones room, but also in their moods. The rooms should be well lit by natural light in the day time and full spectrum bulbs or LED lights in the night.

    The rooms should be well ventilated ones. The indoor plants, besides adding beauty to the room, also act as natural air purifiers. By putting indoor plants one can bring about a serene look to the room. Cleaning and changing the filters of the air conditioners and heaters is also a must. By using mild aromatherapy, also, one can boost the energy levels.

    The choice of the color combination adds ambience to the room. It gives a soothing effect and attracts positive energy, if selected wisely. It can be balanced by the use of bright and vibrant colors. The seven colors of the rainbow have a varying effect on us. We need to know them in order to draw the best from them.

    The VIBGYOR effect on us is as follows:-

    Violet has a healing effect but it can also give a distressed feeling if overdone. . Indigo color instills intuition and perception, yet its excess may cause depression. Blue has a reassuring and serene effect but if used in excess, it, too, can attract depressive energy. Greens have a soothing effect, but its overdoing can make one feel lethargic and sluggish. Yellows make you delighted and motivated. But again, its excess can be harmful and can give a feeling of uncertainty. Orange suggests warmth, but it can cause restlessness if overdone. Red is generally considered to be for romance, but too much of it may instill anger also.

    While decorating the room, one must keep in mind these effects so as to create harmony among the colors by selecting them carefully and cautiously. Colors can be used in combination to get a balanced atmosphere.

    The accessories and the furniture in the house also have an influence on the energy levels. These should be arranged in such a manner that there is no overcrowding or chaos. Leaving enough moving space should be kept in mind. Mirrors add to the positive energies as their reflection makes the room look larger.

    Besides, there are some feng shui tips of providing positive vibes to the homes, which many people follow.

    Positive energy at home calls for wellness of its members along with their good health and vitality. Along with the above mentioned tips, a clean and well organized house keeps the energy levels charged and the moods remain elated. Thus, home should undoubtedly be a place where one feels refreshed and renewed and energized.
