Whether you are conscious of it or not, you have an etheric relationship with your home, with the land energies of the place where you live, and with your belongings.
What is your etheric?
The etheric is the vehicle of life force energy that all living beings have. Also known as chi, qi and prana, your etheric is the part of you that loves to be in Nature and to interact with animals and plants. It interacts with everything in your environment, including your home and your belongings.
A way you can consciously experience your etheric relationship to your home is to feel how you feel next time you go away for a week or two. When you return home, there will be a relaxing and spreading that happens as your etheric feels glad to be back. If this doesn’t happen, it’s likely you are living in a place where the land energies are not energetically nourishing for you.
Another possibility is that you have clutter in your home. Clutter clogs and stagnates the energy of a place and will change the nature of your etheric resting to an unhealthy one that drains you, makes you feel tired, and causes you to feel stuck in your life in some way. This is especially the case with clutter you’ve had for a long time or have sentimental attachments to.
How to improve your etheric relationship with your home
The only way to resolve an incompatibility with land energies is to move to a better location which, for some people, may not be an option or may take quite a while to arrange. But there are much easier solutions if the issue is clutter.
The first way is to break through the stagnation in your own etheric by getting fit, losing weight, and/or doing some emotional work to clear the stuckness in yourself. This will naturally result in you eventually wanting to clutter clear your home, which will have the effect of refreshing the ethericity of the space.
Or you can do it the other way round, which is to clutter clear first. This will have a revitalizing effect on your etheric, causing you to want to eat healthier, become fitter, and so on. For many people this is a much easier and much more effective approach.
Of course, if you have a lot of clutter, clearing it may take time. But little by little, a bit each day, you can really turn your life around. And when you truly understand that your home is a reflection of yourself, and that the ways you nurture or neglect it have such a tangible effect on your life, you will be motivated to clutter clear as never before to reclaim your life and get back on track.
