Energy is everything. Our bodies, our thoughts, our words, our beliefs are all energy.
“Physical” atoms are made up of energy that is constantly vibrating at its unique vibrational rates according to its atomic structure(s).
No matter how solid an object, matter, may appear they are actually porous, and there can be teeny, tiny holes between the molecules where energy is.
The frequency that a human body vibrates at can become unstable and low. Because we have our own unique vibrational frequency, actually we have multiple frequencies within our body, not just one, we seek to be in resonance with
When the cell membranes within our bodies encounter a vibrational frequency, via our receptor antennae, we will entrain with that frequency, and that will affect our bodies.

Home Is Sacred
Everyone can agree that our homes are our own sacred spaces. While we may have a spot in the house that we dedicate to daily prayer and meditation, our entire home is our sacred space. And every element within a home, furniture, and accessories must be considered for the energy it brings into the house.
While we have no control over the environments that we experience in the world, our home is the one place where we can control the environment because everything within our environment affects us.
There must be a spiritual, not religious, intention when approaching holistic interior design. And a deep knowing that our homes help in our own self-care, the temple of our spirit brings so much more meaning to the work that a Holistic Interior Designer does.
