5 Ways I Infused Good Vibes Into My Living Space
From practical crystal pieces, to Feng Shui-inspired items and happy plants, you'll want these positive pieces.
It may be a foreign notion for some to burn sage (a.k.a “clear” a space of negative energy), place crystals throughout your home, or utilize the principles of Feng Shui. While some of these are ancient practices, even though they’ve been brought into modern times, they aren’t always considered to be mainstream.
Crystals alone can be overwhelming. When strategically placed, some may help protect your home from bad vibes, help you sleep better, and even have a more positive outlook on life. But, there’s more than 4,000 to choose from, and learning how to properly use them can be a daunting process.
Celebrities including Adele, Katy Perry, Jenna Dewan, Gisele Bündchen, and Gwyneth Paltrow have long touted the use of the mystical rocks in and around their homes, so there’s definitely something to it.
That said, it’s never a bad thing to try and infuse more good vibes into your living space. I’m a busy mom with four young kids. While it’s not likely I’ll be sage-ing daily, or spending the time to get schooled on crystals, I do try to set positive intentions wherever and whenever I can.
We can ease you into some of the aforementioned concepts, if they’re something you’d never considered before. From placements of plants, to practical purchases using crystals, and sage candles you can burn around your home, there are quick and easy ways you can get more positivity into your pad, like I did.
Here are five items that’ll boost happiness and infuse good vibes into your living space.
There are enough different types of crystals with various meanings to make your head spin. Plus, you have to know where to put them and oftentimes, they just take up space. Simplify it by adding some crystal decor, so you get the same good vibes, with a dose of practicality.
