Just yesterday I decided to clear some areas in our home that I felt were cluttered and not letting good energy into our home. I believe that all areas of the home are important and meaningful, but the front of your home is the welcoming area. These areas are the front door/entryway and the coat closet.
The door and entry to your home is the first place that you see when you enter your home and the first place guests see when they are invited into your home. It is important to keep this area clean, tidy and inviting. This creates a great energy about your home and invites in more social time, more abundance and more life into your spaces.
I decided to clear away the extra planter pots and rocks that I had displayed on the front porch leading up to our door. I used to have 7 planter pots and a ceramic decorative jug on the small porch near our front door. It was starting to feel crowded, untidy and had the wrong energy about it.. This is the season that the summer flowers are waning as it is fall, and many of the plants weren’t vibrant anymore. This is why I placed these planters and rocks in the backyard until the spring when I can place them in the garden and start fresh. I found a lovely rosemary plant and some lemon thyme in two beautiful pots and brought them to the front porch to display along with the beautiful decorative jug. This not only creates a beautiful number of 3 things, which I consider lucky- it looks vibrant, alive and energetic! It gives you a great feeling as you enter the home.
The other area I decided to clear and get down to the essentials was the front closet. This is another area that guests encounter when they enter you home. In this season of rain and cold, it’s important to have an area for coats, winter gear and hats. Since I cleared the closet of anything that wasn’t essential for our use in this season (I stored items for spring/summer in our bedroom closet) it left room to place several hangers for guest’s coats. It’s great to have this space for those items. It feels inviting, it feels alive and it leaves space for life to flow in.
If you are wanting to welcome in more guests, more abundance and more life to your home, I am happy to help you through the decluttering journey as your guide to letting life in.
With lots of love,
