Photo: My little space
No matter where I live, renting, owning or even sharing, all my life I have created my own little place of tranquillity. My space is my haven, it is my escape from the madness of the world.
I'm fortunate that I work from home, so it's even more important that my space feels peaceful and has a positive energy.
Tips on creating a beautiful space:
Clean and tidy
I respect myself enough to want to live in a clean and tidy home. Nothing is more upsetting to CHI energy than clutter and dirt. This my priority tip.

I love the serenity of the Buddha and have a number of them in the home.
Peaceful with exquisite smells. I always burn candles, even during the day. I do however take great care not to leave them unattended.
Musical instruments used for meditation, healing, and clearing space. When the two pieces strike each other they produce a clear, pure, uplifting sound, which can be used to focus the mind before and after meditation. I sometimes ring them and place them over my body to absorb the energy.
Whenever I am near plants, especially in forests or the Australian bush I literally feel their energy. That's why I like to have them indoors as well. I usually group them together to make a nice impact.
