Den Zen: Simple Ways To Fill Your Home With Loving Energy

A lion’s den is a place for him to rest. If your den is making you restless instead of calm, then it’s time you make certain changes.

Your home is your source of solace. It’s where you recharge your batteries and freshen your perspectives, which is why it must always be filled with love. Here are a few everyday tips/tricks to invite loving energy into your home, and keep it there! 

  1. Declutter, recycle, clean-as-you-go – The first physical step towards allowing your house to ‘breathe’. Old/dysfunctional items, clothes, accessories that you haven't worn in ages, outdated magazines/newspapers – all collectively create a stagnant aura of exhaustion. Clearing them gives you a practical idea of what you really need. It also induces feelings of novelty, so you're more likely to get creative; substituting useless objects with updated/positive ones.
  2. Connect with nature – It’s easy to designate a section of the terrace/balcony, or even a small window sill, to flowers and lush, green plants. Nature in any form is restful and therapeutic; a trigger for peace. Gardening/rooftop farming are activities to involve all family members in – thus amplifying feelings of togetherness. Keeping water and seeds for birds is an act of gratitude that invites energies of abundance and prosperity. My mother used to say that wind chimes call for protection by spirits – if they chime without a breeze, a spirit is letting you know it's around. When I put one in my balcony, the thought of this scared me. Actually, it’s quite comforting.
  3. Routine cleansing using fragrances – Aromatherapy for stress-relief is now a fairly common practice. Many people burn essential oils (lavender/patchouli/lemongrass) to enjoy the heady fragrances. If you can't find smudging sticks easily, you can burn loban, or frankincense, carrying the smoke to every corner of the house. This is believed to dissipate negative energy. On particularly stuffy evenings/nights, try keeping a bunch of jasmine flowers in a bowl of cool water. Switch on your AC’s, and keep the doors closed. This is a great remedy for a tired body, after a long day at work!
  4. Interior decoration with salt lamps/paintings/sculptures – Himalayan pink salt lamps generate a greater number of negative ions in the air – which are also created by sunlight, ocean waves, waterfalls, or lightning. Hence, with these lamps at home, you’re replicating the same feelings of freshness and invigoration that you get from these natural phenomena. Keep them in rooms where you tend to feel tired without knowing why, and where you tend to argue or fight. My own family was advised to stock the living room with paintings/sculptures of the Buddha, which has surprisingly worked wonders on all our hot heads. Now, we love sitting in the living room, instead of our own rooms at the end of the day, or on weekends.
  5. Talk lovingly, to act lovingly! – We all ‘lose it’ sometimes, some more intensely than others. In fact, if you must scream or shout, it's better done within the four walls of your house! But it's less draining on everyone’s mood as well as mental strength, if all make an effort to be calm, patient, and encouraging. Remember the last time you faced a loved one with a smile, instead of just a quick nod of the head? Even that one gesture drastically changes the quality of the vibes circulating in the house.

When you know how to fill your home with loving, positive energy, things get better. These are tried and tested methods, ones I can personally vouch for. Should you try them, may they fill your home with compassion and love – that which you can use personally, and then share with everyone!

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
