Chi or Qi is the energy which gives life. This energy flows through our bodies and rules the universe around us. It can be affected by different things, by either being brought down or up. Therefore, it’s pivotal to surround ourselves with positive energy in our homes.
When our energy is down, we feel ‘bad’ and vice versa, when it’s up, we feel ‘good’. You don’t need to be practically aware of your energy to notice that there are places, people, or things that have bad energy. This bad energy is characterized by an uneasy and creepy feeling when you’re with those people or at that place. On the other hand, there are places and people that make you feel amazing.
This is because, from a scientific point of view, everything in this world, including humans, is a big ball of energy vibrating at different frequencies and determines what we see or perceive in a physical form.
Good Vibes, Please!
According to numerous quantum physicists, our emotions are energy in motion and they surround our physical body. When coupled with our energy makeup, they can even be seen with certain technology. The author and founder of The Emotion Code, Dr. Bradly Nelson claims that our emotions and their energy are so potent that they can determine the experiences we bring to ourselves.
According to the CDC, 85% of all diseases have an emotional element. A study done by the Institute of Heartmath, when we think and feel angry, fearful, and frustrating thoughts, our DNA alters according to these thoughts. Furthermore, when exposed to negative energy, the DNA tightened up and switched off many of the DNA codes. The shutdown was reversed when feelings of joy, gratitude, and appreciation were felt. The DNA relaxed and the strands unwounded.
How to Boost Positive Energy at Home
Negative energy can damage the DNA and cause diseases. Hence, besides one’s own energy that keeps you happy and healthy, you also need to have good vibes at your home, where you spend most of your time. You need to raise the energy and make it a more comfortable space for you, your family, and anyone who enters it.
The art of smudging dates back to ancient times when our ancestors burned sacred plants to clear and bless space. The smoke from burning plants like cedar, tobacco, sweet grass, juniper, pine needles, lavender, rosemary, and sage has been shown to detox the air of impurities like viruses and bacteria.
A good time for smudging an area is when you move into a new home, when you start a new job or a career, after a guest leaves, before meditation, or after an argument or a disease of a family member. You can buy pre-made dried herbs in a stick or dry your own. Put them in an aluminum bowl and light them. Blow the flame gently so that the cinders release a cleansing smoke. Walk from room to room and let the smoke waft through the space. At the end, make sure the cinders have died out.
Essential oil diffusers
Similar to smudging, heated oils release cleansing properties into the air and clear the space of negativity, viruses, and bacteria. Opt for the following oils: peppermint, frankincense, myrrh, rose, cypress, cedarwood, basil, juniper, lavender, sage, and Palo Santo.
Removing unnecessary items will help in the elimination of negative vibes attached to these items and it will cleanse the energy in the home. Get rid of things you haven’t used in the past 6 months or so. Don’t forget to go through your wardrobe and put aside things that you won’t need anymore. You can give them to charity or to close friends and family! While you’re clearing out clutter, don’t stress over it because it will cause more negativity.

Music exists since man could bang sticks and stones together. Although it has evolved, it has remained a cultural form of entertainment and it also has a healing effect on the body. It can change your vibration or that of the space it fills. This is why concerts and music events are so energetic and memorable. Studies have shown that music is good for the heart, blood pressure, immunity, learning and memory, sleep, and pain management. Therefore, play uplifting and joyful music in your home. Opt for classical, jazz, folk, soul, opera, etc.
Get a pet

Plants and fresh flowers
