Everyone wants their home to be a place that is full of peace. A place that has no stress, and is full of love. It really is possible to create this type of environment in your home. It is very simple but it works. When people come into my house, they often tell me, “This is the most peaceful place I have ever been,” or “I really feel at home here it is so peaceful”. I love when people make statements like that because it affirms that what I am doing is working.
Creating a peaceful environment has a lot to do with how you feel. If your home is where you go to be comfortable and get away from chaos, it will show in the environment of you home. I don’t mean that you have to have the most beautiful or most expensive things in your home, as a matter of fact, most of the things I own have been bought second hand. I really don’t like to waste money and I have children, it doesn’t matter if I buy it new or not in a month it no longer looks new. Think about the environment as more than just the things you have. Think about it as the feeling you get while you are in your house.
If you want a peaceful environment, you have to ensure that only peace enters your home. If you are constantly yelling at your children or fighting with your spouse, you will not have a peaceful environment. You will have instead a very stressful angry environment. You should not allow any yelling in your home. You are allowed to feel upset but you are not allowed to put that out into the atmosphere of your home.
Play peaceful music each day. Did you know that if you play classical music all day in your home while you are at work, you will enter a very relaxed environment when you come home? You allow the music to fill your home and it will lighten the atmosphere. This is something that can change things in one day. Try it. All you have to do is let some peaceful relaxing music play in your home when you are not there. See how the atmosphere changes.
Laugh often. When you laugh in your home with those that you love you will create an atmosphere of joy and happiness instead of a negative environment you will find that it becomes very peaceful. Tell jokes, act goofy, watch comedies on the television whatever it takes to laugh make sure you laugh often.
Finally, you should love your home. If you do not love your home, it will show in the atmosphere and you will never be at peace in your home. Accept that this is the place you have been given for the time being. Love what you have and take great joy in caring for it. If you do this you will find that your home suddenly becomes much more peaceful not only for you but for everyone who comes through your door.
