What makes you different from the other 7.8 billion humans on planet Earth? What makes you laugh till you pee your pants? What fires you up and pisses you off? What are the skills, talents, and knowledge you were born with that are vastly different from your siblings or any other member of your family?
The answers to these questions are not random or happenstance. They are just as much a part of you as the color of your eyes.
These are expressions of your soul! And it's what makes you TRULY unique!
I encourage you to design a YOU-Inspired life with
a home that supports the calling of your SOUL!
In this blog, I discuss the mind, body, soul connection and how the integration of all three leads to self-actualization. Next, I discuss exactly how your HOME can support your soul. Finally, I show you pictures of what Home Design for the Soul actually looks like.
What is the Mind Body Soul Connection?
Imagine that you are a computer…
Your Body is the physical computer; the thing you interact with, type on, and look at.
Your Mind is the hard drive, the device that stores and retrieves data.
Your Soul is the Wi-Fi! Your connection to all that is!
All three aspects of life (mind, body, and soul) must be unified in order to live a fully expressed life, a YOU-Inspired Life!
Once you’ve achieved sustained support for your mind and body, (see my last 2 blog posts) your soul is finally free to experience self-actualization.
What is Self-Actualization?
Considered the highest level of psychological development: self-actualization is the fulfillment of one’s talents, potentiality, and the complete expression of your soul!
Why Do You Care?
When you reach self-actualization, you live an authentic life that makes you feel fully alive. Your life is marked by ease and joy. Your relationships become more meaningful and loving. You develop a deep appreciation for life itself. And the inevitable struggles of life feel far more manageable.
Good Hygiene for Your Soul
There are many ways to care for and express your soul.
How Does Home Support Your Soul?
Your home plays a tremendous roll in the expression of your soul. When your home is designed to be an extension of you, you feel deeply connected to the person you’ve created yourself to be.
You move through your home effortlessly as though you are in a synchronized dance with the structure around you.
The positive energy in your home encourages the forward momentum in your pursuit of life fulfillment.
A YOU-Inspired life goes hand-in-hand with a YOU-Inspired home!
3 Questions to Ask Yourself When Designing for Your Soul:
Creating a scrapbook, an Ideabook in Houzz, or Pinterest page is a wonderful way to begin visualizing spaces your soul feels drawn to.
When considering photos for your scrapbook, Ideabook, or Pinterest page ONLY consider the photos that truly speak to you!
Then do a little visualization exercise:
How do I WANT to feel?
Does this space REALLY give me the feeling I'm looking for?
Then open your eyes and look at the photo again. Are there only certain aspects of the photo that you like? If so, which ones? Write this down!!!
This is essential information we need to know to be able to hone in on exactly what works for you and what doesn’t. We take a great deal of time listening to you. We WANT to know all the little details. We encourage you to spend the time listening to your soul first.
This is the foundation of our You-Inspired Discovery Process: the detailed deep dive that allows us to truly get to know you as an individual; unique and perfect exactly the way you are!
Home Design for the Soul
Let’s feed your soul by creating spaces for your passions, talents, and the activities that make you FEEL authentically you.
Is your soul deeply connected to Mother Nature?
Is your soul calling out for inner connection and peace?
Is your soul calling you to connect to the cosmos?
Perhaps your soul is more creative?
From MY Soul to Yours
Home Design is my passion! It allows me to connect with my soul and live a self-actualized life. I recognize my inherent gifts and talents and it’s my intention to utilize my unique abilities to the greatest extent possible when designing your dream home.
I intend your soul speaks loudly, your mind listens to the calling, and your body follows the direction.
Inspired by YOU,
