This weekend, while I was prepping the living room for the darkness removal, I got to thinking about how as much as 2020 has been so unpredictable, anxiety driven, fear filled. We truly have been forced to redirect our lives.
Do I agree with the extremes the government is placing on us? No. Not in the very least, loved ones need each other, people need human connection, more than virtually. This “virtual” and “social media” online is a farce, that is not real life and never should be. I refuse to think this is our “new way of living”. That will kill more people than a virus. However I am a firm believer in the power of positive thinking. So… the re-direct!
From darkness comes light.
I’m sure many will agree, 2020 has been a pretty dark year. I strongly feel the beautiful light is coming.
In 2020 the government has literally forced people all over the world to spend the majority of their time in their homes, alone or with the people who also live there.
It is my hope for all, that during this time even one thing could have improved that perhaps there “wasn’t time for” before.
As I stood in our kitchen making my lunch, my fav kind… a bowl of left over chicken and pasta with an avocado, some feta, mustard and greek feta dressing; I felt completely at peace in our home and our life.
Something resonated for me the other night as I was reading about feng shui in the home.
In this article, she talks about Feng Shui House Basics To Prevent Fatigue. One of the points is a dark narrow hallway. How it can make you feel constricted. “If your home has dark, cramped hallways you’re literally being squeezed to the bone. Energy is being squeezed out of you. Hang some mirrors, paint the hall white, add pictures of nature, and install better lighting to boost you up.”
This instantly resonated with me. I absolutely love our house, but something has felt energy sucking, which was so conflicting because I am thrilled with the changes we have made.
This wall completely makes sense. It’s the main focal point in our home and then leads back to bedrooms and bathrooms. I could feel the energy and exactly how this article described it.
This article completely motivate me to get my buns in gear and remove the darkness. The result has me beyond thrilled. I even added a beautiful canvas that can be seen from the entrance, dining room and kitchen of water flowing over river rocks.
It was a lot of work BUT so worth it! Walking into our home now feels completely at peace, without hesitation!
A great reminder in life, the darkness is never strong than the light. Always reach for the light, its filled with peace, grace, ease and truth! ✌
