The Holistic Home: Spiritual Considerations to Keep in Mind When Purchasing a New Space

The Holistic Home: Spiritual Considerations to Keep in Mind When Purchasing a New Space

For many people, homeownership is among the pinnacle in terms of life goals. Having a space that you can truly call your own is linked to numerous health and spiritual benefits. According to a Habitat for Humanity study, in fact, “homeowners report higher self-esteem and happiness than renters.” Further, homeowners are also healthier than those who rent a living space, by a rate of about 2.5%.

Yet homeownership isn’t without its downsides, and purchasing a new home can even be a stressful experience as you venture into the unknown. And if you’re relocating from a toxic living space, it may take considerable effort to learn how to live in safety and peace. Thus, as you relocate to your new home, whether an urban condo, off-grid oasis, or another type of dwelling space altogether, don’t overlook the spiritual considerations.

Finding spiritually-minded ways to boost your home’s curb appeal is one thing, but new homeowners should start small. In many ways, the process of creating a holistic space begins with the purchasing process itself — as you browse potential spaces to live the next chapter of your life, for instance, pay attention to the inherent energy in each space. Just like people, living spaces can absorb the energy around them and may unfortunately harbour negativity. 

The Importance of Place in the Home Buying Process

The good news is that a simple house blessing and/or smudging ceremony can do wonders for cleansing a space as well as dispelling worries from your mind. Indeed, every spiritually-minded relocation process should begin with mindfulness, and then the rest may just fall into place. Tangibly set your intentions from the moment you set foot in your new space, whatever its location, and don’t allow stress to get in the way.

Intention and location are among your most trusted allies as you begin the next chapter in your life. The concept of location has long been held in high esteem by real estate professionals and home buyers alike, and neighbourhoods that are considered “safe” are highly desired. Other factors that indicate a desirable neighbourhood where you may find comfort and community over the long term include quality schools and relatively easy commutes. For millennial homebuyers, in particular, some of the most sought-after neighbourhoods are chock full of local amenities and have efficient and accessible public transportation options.

But while every inhabitant on Earth deserves to have a home of their own, the ideal living situation varies considerably among individual homeowners, even in the most coveted neighbourhoods. As you search for the perfect place to make a home, keep the concept of individualism in mind: Different people may thrive in a variety of unique living environments.

Identifying Your Spirit’s Ideal Environment

Before you even contact a real estate agency, look inside yourself and determine the environments in which you feel the most comfortable and at peace. For example, people who self-identify as extroverts or who crave social situations may be better suited for urban areas and vibrant, sustainable cities. Humans are inherently social creatures, and living in the city offers plenty of opportunities to socialize with people from all walks of life. What’s more, by nurturing social relationships, you may even increase your lifespan and improve your overall satisfaction with life.

Conversely, if you’re more of a hermit or prefer the sounds of nature to that of traffic and conversation, a rural home may be a better choice. For some people, city life can increase stress rather than reduce it, and the constant hustle and bustle of urban areas may negatively impact your sleep patterns and eating habits. There are also accessibility factors to consider, especially if you live with a disability of some kind. 

In the end, however, the choice is an individual one. As both city life and the idyllic charm of the countryside have their benefits and drawbacks, it’s up to you to determine the best place to make a home of your own.

Turning an Empty House into a Home

And once you’ve found the perfect space, the real work begins. As previously mentioned, it’s in your best interest to neutralize the stagnant energy in your new home before even a single box passes through the doorway. Blessing your home with a smudge stick is one of the easiest ways to rid a space of negative energy, and the ritual is safe enough to perform regularly.

Of course, completely ridding your home of potential toxins cannot be accomplished via smudging alone. If the things you’re putting in your body are unhealthy or toxic, your body and spirit will needlessly suffer. As such, the water that flows through your home, and that you subsequently ingest and clean yourself with, should be of the highest quality.

The unfortunate reality is that municipal water is susceptible to a variety of problems, from the innocuous condition known as hard water to serious health conditions caused by potential contamination. To reduce your risk, consider the benefits of detoxifying your water via a home purification system, and monitoring your home’s water quality regularly. Good quality water should contain a minimal amount of dissolved solids and microorganisms.

Ensuring that the water in your home is high-quality will keep you healthier, and you can take the lessons learned from purification to the next level. Consider the foods you consume, and the meals you plan to prepare in your new home. Upgrade any outdated appliances with those that are environmentally friendly, conserving resources such as energy and water. Then, stock your new pantry with healthy, minimally processed food options and plenty of fresh produce.

Home is Where the Heart Is

Ideally, your home should serve as your sanctuary, where you can make memories and become your best self in a stress-free environment. To keep your spirit strong through every aspect of the home buying and relocation process, mindfulness is key. Do your best to connect with the inherent energy in your new space, and work from there, keeping spiritual considerations from water quality to location and beyond in mind throughout the process.
