It’s the dead of winter and the snow keeps coming! Right now it may seem like spring will never get here. But it will! Before you know it there will buds on the trees and the ice, sand and salt will be a memory. In the meantime, you may be experiencing low energy, physical tiredness and maybe even slight depression. Here are some space and energy clearing remedies to combat those winter blues and bring cheer and positive energy into your home.
To increase energy and lift your spirits, try rubbing on some essential oils: Geranium balances mood swings and induces harmony. Tangerine is an energy oil powered by the sun! Lemon and orange are refreshing and uplifting.
Burn incense to stimulate energy in your home: Bergamot is uplifting yet calming and peppermint is invigorating as it cleanses and refreshes the air. Rosemary increases mental clarity.
Placing certain crystals around can also enhance the energy in your home: Carnelian revives interest in everyday activities and helps to overcome sadness. Citrine helps combat boredom while both jasper and quartz crystals lift your spirits.
Turn up the volume!: Music lifts spirits and definitely effects the energy in your home in a positive way. I’m not talking about stuffy classical or even new age. I’m talking fast beat and rhythmic with positive lyrics!
Get moving! Dance, jog in place, get on the treadmill and if the weather allows, take a walk. Even though everything may seem asleep, Mother Earth is alive and well beneath the snow and hard ground waiting to re-awaken. Connect with her firey core and feel her energy.
Enjoy the mid-winter energy boost! If you have any other remedies for uplifting energy during these long winter months please share them in the comments.
