Spirituality means different things to different people. The truth is that our homes are our sanctuaries. This is where we can be ourselves and lock out the cares of the world. This is where we come to be nurtured both emotionally and mentally. A home should exhibit at least a small portion of our essence, reflecting who we are as a person and a spiritual being.
In today’s society we are constantly on the move. The days are long and arduous. Our schedules barely leave enough time for sleep. A spiritually decorated home will give you that much need lifeline, a connection to something greater than yourself to help you keep it all in perspective. It does not have to be an ostentatious display but something simple and elegantly. And current of hope and calm permeating the home based on what is important to you.
The use of reminder symbols and pictures help you to slow down and take stock of what is really important. Wall plaques with spiritual sayings that help you to come to grips with the flow of the universe and if you are Christian scriptures that help to brighten your day.
Many religions have customs that require ornaments of some type as a blessing for the home and those who dwell within. That is what spiritual decorating is about arranging your home so that the scheme encourages self-expression, creativity and spiritual wholeness. Look for items when decorating that embodies this and also have an appeal to the other senses as well.
