There are few things in this world that hold deep meaning. You could probably count on one hand the most deeply, meaningful people, places or things in your life. Not to take meaning away from other aspects of your life, and not to include any physiological needs, but if you stop and think of the top five deeply meaningful aspects of your life as a whole most people would come up with a list something along the lines of: family and friends, my home, my first pair of dance shoes or hockey skates, my grandfather’s old hat, a letter, or that day on the beach where we ran around in the sand and laughed until it hurt. Most things boil down to how deeply we are touched by a memory. Our current life will often reflect these moments, or special things. We spend time with our loved ones, we keep heirlooms in dark, dry places and we live in our homes.
What we often forget is that those things reflect back onto us as well. We are a double mirror (is there such a thing?) where what is within is reflected without and what is without is reflected within. Still with me? Ok, so your home is one of the most important and deeply meaningful places in your life. It’s the place where you constantly spend the most time, and in spending those hours, minutes, sleeping, eating, laughing, decompressing, playing with your kids and pets, you are creating a reality within those walls. In my opinion it works both ways. The home itself also creates a reality in which you play out your life. So what makes us create the home we live in? What makes us decorate it a certain way or build it a certain way? Well, like the rest of our reality we all have conscious and subconscious beliefs about ourselves and the world around us. The beliefs that help to mold and shape the quality of our lives are our subconscious beliefs. Just like, you are what you eat? You are what you think is just as accurate.
Each of us has shaped our worlds, the way we see our world and the way we perceive our world based on our subconscious beliefs, which came from how we were raised, what we were taught, what we experienced in our lives and all of this lives in our memories which lives in our subconscious, or something like that. We have attached a certain meaning to the events that have taken place in our lives. The things we have attached a good meaning to we want to me reminded of and surrounded by.
Have you ever heard of people who suffer brain traumas, such as a car accident sometimes upon recovery seem like different people and have to recreate their social circles and relationships as their new self. There are many reasons for this, including personality, but how much is related to what they can remember? What lessons did they live and learn through but now have lost? How has this affected their subconscious and in turn their current state of reality. A bit off the rails here, but I have a point, I promise.
If we can agree we are what we think, then we can also agree that our core beliefs become our view of our world, the glasses we see our lives through, to the point where we don’t even realize they are beliefs. These beliefs are so deeply embedded into our energy field that these subconscious beliefs continuously manifest the world we live in. Just as your body projects your energy field all around you, so do your beliefs project into the world. Acting as a magnet or mirror that draw to you what you are putting out there.
In turn, situations, people, opportunities, and basically everything that is congruous with the energy you are putting out is pulled back to you. Which means that your personal world, such as your home, is created by your core beliefs which live in your subconscious. For example, Sacred Space by Denise Linn, shares that if you have a subconscious belief that you can’t trust others, like a projector beaming this belief into the universe, this will continuously occur even when you are calm and peaceful, and will draw people to you who shouldn’t be trusted. Affirming your belief that you can’t trust people.
On a larger scale your home is a living affirmation of what you create. If you want a more abundant life, then you need to create a physical environment in your home that projects this. By changing the home itself, and the template in which you live you are able to draw toward you the things that you want. Using affirmative language can help you to reprogram some deep beliefs that you are aware of that you feel are no longer serving you. A simply and powerful affirmation can sound something like this, “I am safe. I am loved. I am worthy. I am healthy. I am happy.” Even if you don’t feel as though those statements are true, repeat them, let the sound of them seep into your bones, until you start to connect with the meaning of the words, and slowly you will start to embed these as core beliefs.
