4 Ways to Put the Om Back Into Your Home
by Tisha Morris

Llewellyn.com - December 2013

Holistic living is becoming more mainstream as nutrition, preventive and alternative medicine, and conscious living are simply a way of life. Holistic implies being whole or taking into account the whole picture—our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well being. As eastern practices meet western medicine, the "wholistic" pie is starting to take shape with the mind, body, and spirit being equally taken into account.

One healing modality that has been overlooked—and that is literally right under our nose—is our home. Our home is a reflection of ourselves, physically, mentally, and emotionally. And as we make changes to our home, we make changes to our selves and our lives. There is an energetic relationship with the mind, body, and home. It is no wonder that the ancient art of feng shui has been practiced for thousands of years.

Our home is second only to our body as our physical dwelling on Earth. It is so closely related to our mind and body that the two have oftentimes throughout history been used interchangeably in religions, architecture, and in dream analysis.

The energy patterns within our self, from belief systems to preferences to disease, are also present within our home. Have you ever had a great massage or bodywork where you left feeling great? And upon returning home, you fell right back into your old patterns; maybe your shoulders started to slump forward again or your breathing returned to being labored.

If the energy flow in your home is "off," then the energy flow in your body will be as well. Energy flow in your home can be affected by a number of things, including the land on which you live, the floor plan, arrangement of furniture, disrepair, accessories, clutter, and even previous owners.

It's hard to believe that simply by moving a couch, adding a nightstand, clearing out out-of-style clothes, or repositioning your desk chair can change your life. I have seen major shifts take place time and time again with my clients when they make simple changes in their home. And the best thing about it is that you can make these changes today with little, if any, cost. Consider it acupuncture for your home.

Here are a few things to consider in making your home part of your holistic lifestyle.

Llewellyn.com - Author Interview - December 2013

by Llewellyn

1. How did you go from practicing law to becoming a feng shui practitioner?

Tisha MorrisIt only took a couple days of practicing law to know that it wasn't for me. However, it took me many years to figure out what was. While practicing law, I obtained a Fine Arts degree in Interior Design because I have always loved the home and have an innate sense of decorating. Soon afterwards, I delved into yoga and became a yoga instructor. Yoga was my bridge into a new world of energy and the healing arts. From there, I became an energy healer. It occurred to me that spaces need healing just like our body. That's when I started combining my interior design background with energy healing. I soon realized that people have been doing this for thousands of years—it's called Feng Shui!

2. What inspired you to write your book, Mind, Body, Home?

The idea for this book came from a house that I purchased in 2006; it was a Spanish bungalow that needed a complete renovation. It was not coincidental that I had just ended a relationship and was needing my own personal renovation. As I made changes to this house, correlating aspects were taking place within myself—physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I realized just how interrelated our energy is with our home. I knew this needed to be a book one day. It was clear that our home is an underutilized healing modality. And so I journaled the process and discoveries along the way. 

3. What do you mean when you refer to the "Mind-Body-Home connection?"

Second only to our skin, our home is our protective layer in the physical world. It houses our emotions, our vulnerabilities, our memories, our dreams, and our secrets. It is an energetic extension of ourselves—physically, mentally, and emotionally. And as we make changes to our home, correlating aspects will take place in our selves and our lives.

4. You talk a lot about the energy, or the soul, of a home. Can you explain what you mean by this?

Each house is a living body within itself. Starting with the blueprint, it has its own energy separate from its occupants. It has its own personality, its own history, and its own patterns. And therefore our lives are affected and shaped in some way by the spaces in which we live. Just like people, there are aspects of a home we can influence and try to change, but only to a certain degree. When we move into a space, we are entering into a relationship with that space.
