The spaces of the house directly influence the quality of life, for this reason, more than furniture, objects, coatings and functionalities, emotions also count when decorating. Many professionals embark on the path of Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese technique, which uses energy forces to harmonize individuals with their surroundings, and then transcend to the therapy of environments, also called energy architecture.
It was the architect Kelly Curcialeiro, who began to question the role of architecture. “It can’t just be doing projects, accompanying customers in stores, choosing finishes and furniture. Architecture needs to offer something that changes the life of the resident”, he evaluates.
With that, she worked on her self-knowledge and “turned the key”, as she defines it, starting the process with Feng Shui. “Afterwards, I went to research other areas to make deeper cures, whose set of techniques is called environment therapy. It treats a space, whether home or company, considering psychological, mental, emotional, vibrational and physical aspects, among others”, explains.
The architect Allan Cacicedo it also went beyond Chinese technique. He began to study other strands, such as psychology, neuroscience, dowsing and quantum physics to find points of convergence between these areas. “Before working with energy architecture, I was already doing projects and silently applying these methods. I began to notice that I had positive results”, he says.
According to the Chinese method, properties are mapped into nine spaces that represent nine areas of our lives: work, spirituality, family, prosperity, success, relationships, creativity, friends and health. Each area is activated by an element and, just like in nature, they must follow a harmonic cycle so that the energies have a good flow.
Allan says that, first of all, the resident needs to be clear about his goals. “So, we don’t just do a decoration project, but a mapping of how your life is and what your desires are in each area”, says the architect.
from that briefing, elements are placed that activate each area of life within the spaces of the house. “Only this process of awareness and intention that the residents put into the project makes them have consistency with their attitudes. For example, going through the room and seeing an object in pair, which was placed to attract harmony in the relationship or even a new companion, collaborates to vibrate at that frequency”, reports Allan.
For Kelly, this process happens because the home has an informational matrix and everything that happens in the place is connected to this field of information and to the walls. “The house is a reflection of who we are and everything we do in it reflects on us. When the house has some energy imbalance, over time this is shaped in the physical, through ‘pathologies’. Problems such as leaks, cracks, light bulbs fires and the like, therefore, can mean ‘the house talking to you’ that there are some issues to resolve”, he says.
The specialist also points out that, when performing the therapy of environments, the points of energy imbalances are initially identified. It also proposes healing, harmonizing and aligning these energies, at which time it makes use of a set of techniques: Quantum Feng Shui, geobiology, radiesthesia, sound harmonization, biophilia, aromatherapy, chromotherapy and psionic table, among others.
In this process, it is important to sort objects, clothes and shoes – whatever is broken should be repaired or discarded. Whatever is in good condition and no longer used, must be donated.
Apply environment therapy
Below, check out more tips from professionals who can collaborate so that the energies start to flow and raise the vibration of your home:
1. Have natural plants
Powerful in cleaning, purifying, revitalizing and changing the energy pattern of the place, plants, according to Kelly, bring a connection with nature, in addition to beautifying the environment and giving a feeling of well-being. “They filter the denser energies by transmuting them into positive energy,” adds Allan.
2. Open the windows
Sunlight is the abundant source of life, a way to provide a daily renewal of energies. “The sun has the power to energize, heat, animate, illuminate, sanitize and renew the entire environment. Even if this light does not fall directly, the fact of brightening the space already helps a lot”, says Kelly.
An important step that Allan recommends is “decluttering”, as spaces need to be fluid and unobstructed for energy to circulate. “Use your intuition and take a ‘tour’ of the house, starting with the front door, where vital energy enters”, teaches the architect. Check the condition of the door and the environment that you see immediately upon entering. Observe the quality of the sensations and emotions that this causes you and do this exercise circulating throughout the home, with all the furniture, objects and walls. Finally, recommends Allan, free from your field of view of everything that doesn’t make you feel great.
4. Clean stove
The second most important point in the house is the stove, which must always be clean. “For those who cook, it is the most important source of energy production, the one that nourishes us”, comments Allan.
5. The bedroom and sleep
Many people report that they don’t sleep well, so it’s important to pay attention to some aspects, such as a messy bedside table or bedtime habits – if you read or watch a violent movie, it can disrupt your night, for example. Another point indicated by Kelly is the mirror: if it reflects the person when he is sleeping, it should be avoided. The trunk bed, although it is a good option for places with little space, should be used to store only soft and clean items, such as bedding, bath towels and coats.
6. Clean and organized environment
According to professionals, keeping the home clean and organized is essential to have good energies and benefits, such as a feeling of well-being, reception, comfort and more productivity. This unconsciously contributes to people focusing on the really important goals for the evolution of life. “As we clean and organize each room, we set out to open new paths in our lives for opportunities to come,” says Kelly.
7. Bedroom wall
Pay special attention to the first wall you see when you wake up. “It can propel you into an amazing day or keep you stagnant in bed,” says the architect.
