Brain ImageDo you know how your environment is impacting you? Is your environment making you feel exhausted, uninspired and joyless? Is it depleting your energy and inhibiting you from living the life you dream of living? In today’s article I will share some psychological secrets of how and why your environment can be setting you up for failure in your relationships, mood, health and business. Let’s take a look…

Your brain and what it thinks on a conscious and unconscious level has a huge impact on your level of wellbeing. You might think that you have more say in what you are thinking at any given time. I am here to tell you that contrary to common sense, a large percentage of your thoughts and actions are actually repetitive reactions that you are completely unaware of happening. Understanding this is the first step in creating habitual patterns that you choose because they support you, who you want to be and the life you want to live.

Unfortunately it is sometimes hard to uncover the underlying processes that have become habitual. These are things like thought patterns that were created years ago that have become routine. Sometimes these patterns are good and other times they can be negative.  You can use your environment to trigger positive thought patterns or reactions that will have a beneficial impact on you, your everyday life and the dreams you hope to create.

One example is to find something that inspires you and include it in your home or office. It can be a picture, object or saying. This will remind you of the inspiration and uplift you each time you walk by the item. Initially you will consciously be aware of it, but eventually the object will fade into the background of your mind and you will no longer notice it. However, your subconscious mind will still make the connection influencing you in a positive and life affirming way.

Whether you are trying to create a harmonious inner & outer environment, build a big business, improve your health, form strong connections or find vibrant energy & joy, you can use your abode to nurture and support you and your dream life. Your thoughts create your reality. Use your environment to shift the habitual thought patterns to design a reality that you love.

I would love to hear what item you are going to incorporate in your home or office space that will help to trigger beneficial thoughts and actions. Please share with the Home in Harmony community on the Home in Harmony FaceBook Page! I look forward to seeing what you share!

Happy Soaring!

    Thank you, Christa, I found one thing, and it was interesting and telling how long I had to look around before I found something special and I liked. It was very simple. It was a sandstone half rock I found years ago on top of a very windswept mountain mesa top in New Mexico near Chaco Canyon. The wind had worn the inside of this half-rock into the shape of a small cup. It is a spiritual symbol for me. I am sad, though, I only found one thing. I must do something about that.
