I like the energy in the house right now. This is something weâ€™ve been working on via the Law of Attractionâ€”making the house our sanctuary.
As tools, we light incense regularly, occasionally light some candles, and keep the common areas reasonably clear of debris/girl fodder/Aislinnâ€™s various musical instruments, aka obstacle course. For the past few nights, Iâ€™ve noticed how pleasant it is in the house every evening after dinner.
Iâ€™m usually working away at the computer but get up to check on the girls and see what theyâ€™re up to. Aislinnâ€™s on the family room floor, working on science projects and watching TV. Shannonâ€™s curled up on the living room sofa with her laptop, studying for her college biology test or doing Latin homework. The puppy is quietly, calmly on the floor at her feet or sometimes beside her.
The lighting in the house is low and gentle, peaceful. The plants are flourishing. A fountain may or may not be running at the time. The climate is warm inside when itâ€™s freezing outside.
Itâ€™s just…peaceful. Most definitely a feeling of sanctuary.
