What is your personal balance?
Your personal balance starts, quite simply, with yourself. It all depends on your gut feeling. And that gut instinct basically consists in two things:
- What you find beautiful
- How the energetic balance feels in your interior
If these two conditions are satisfied, you will reach the right balance in your interior and you will feel the so-called 'aha feeling': you will feel at home, you will feel good.
You can usually tell pretty quickly what you like. But what about that energetic balance? Actually, it is the division between energy and calm that is present in your interior. Those two elements complete each other. If that distribution is right, you can reach your own balance. And that is the important thing, isn't it?
Let's take a deeper look at it on the basis of your environment. Have you ever thought that it plays a big role in finding that balance within your interior? Just look out the window: your surroundings are like a 'living painting' that influences the concrete balance within your interior.
We'll go into it in more detail with a few examples:
Your surroundings are part of your interior
Do you look out on a clear blue sky with a bright sun? Then you will already be receiving a lot of energy. Energy that you want to balance by making your interior more 'peaceful': less bright colours or fewer elements that immediately catch the eye.
Do you look out, for example, on a calm grassy plain that radiates tranquillity? Then you will want to spice up your interior with bright accents and unique pieces that provide energy.
Have you noticed how much influence your surroundings can have? They are one of the elements that determine the energetic balance of your interior!
MBut as we said at the beginning of this article: everything depends on your gut feeling. And it is constantly evolving! What you experience as right and balanced today may be completely different tomorrow. Just think of the seasons.
Live with the seasons
The changing seasons have an influence on each and every one of us. And this influence is then translated into your interior: your gut feeling tells you that it is time for a few adjustments.
In winter, you often need more energy because the outside world provides little light and warmth. That is why you opt for warm colours, candles and, for example, an extra plaid on the couch.
During spring, you blossom again. There is energy back in the air, energy you need even more after a long winter. It is therefore logical that you want to bring as much energy as possible indoors. Think of brighter colours and energetic accessories such as a striking vase or a work of art that stands out.
What about summer? When the sun is fully shining, the outside world is already enormously energetic. Then you don't need to use extra eye-catching elements, but choose colours and accessories that are more 'quiet'. This is how you restore the balance!
Moreover, did you know that energy can be found in the little things? Let's say you buy a new mirror to hang in your living room. Do you choose a gold one, or rather a dark one? The first one will bring in a lot of energy, while the second one will appear calm and neutral. It all depends on the details! And it all has to do with perception. Try it out for yourself in your own interior! What brings you peace? What gives you energy?
