Now that we've done with the big cleaning and typing up, it's time to settle some small details to feel at home!
Architect since 2005 and expert in Western Feng Shui, Hélène Nicodème knows all the importance that we put in our habitat but also all the impact that our habitat can have on us. In her projects, the professional has long since introduced the passive, bio-climatic but for years, she has also put her two-year training in Western Feng Shui to good use for her clients. "We realize that with minimal modifications, we can very quickly introduce positive energy. A lot of people have reservations about this approach... And I have to say, I was the first! But having tested it, I really see the differences".
Hélène Nicodème gives us 5 advices to re-appropriate your inner self and to feel right and well, "Beforehand, I would say that you have to try, trust yourself and reconnect with your 5 senses".
1. Circulate the air
It is interesting to take the time every day to do an intensive ventilation. The air we breathe is much more toxic inside than outside. And also think about essential oils. That raises the quality of the air.
2. Create a space for yourself
It's not about hogging a room if you don't have room. We can very well arrange a very small corner of a room with cushions, delimit it by a color, a light, a carpet. It is a space time or a physical space which will regenerate you.
3. Thinking about color
Colors bring a vibration: white is life, energy, purity but too much white is also an unwritten blank page. Blue is soothing, it's good for a place where you want to concentrate, to be inside. Green can be associated with harmony, growth, vitality but also softness. In a baby's room, a celadon green is soft and optimistic. One is not obliged to paint the entirety of a room to feel the impact, a wall, it is often enough to give another breath.
4. How to place your desk
Often one places his desk against a wall, question of minimizing the space taken. This means that you have the space and the door in the back. We will be on the alert (our reptilian brain is on the lookout, possible danger!) whereas if we position ourselves with our back to the wall we will have a feeling of protection, a carapace. To place oneself "in front of a wall", one must take it literally! It is better to open your mind by opening your view. And you can move furniture around and put it back in place at the end of the day. It kind of opens and closes the session.
5. Getting ready for a good night's sleep
First of all by orienting your bed as well as possible. One often says head north for the calm that it brings... But it can also bring more difficult awakenings! In the North-East, for example, one can count on the energy of the morning light, it is positive for many. One ventilates, one makes one's bed and in the evening, before going to bed, a little bit of meditation, it allows to have a super-sleep. But for that, "you have to break your preconceptions", admits Mrs Nicodème and "allow yourself to have desires, new ways of looking at things, dream".
