1. Entryway/Front Door -- This is the transition area between inside and outside worlds. It sets energy for space and the entire life of the occupants. Ideally it is welcoming, well lit, clean, clutter-free and marked with symbols of welcome and inspiration.
2. Bedrooms -- These are symbolic of the inner self. It is the gateway to sleep, a space of healing, a place for physical love and deep rest. Ideally it is cozy, comfortable and neat.
3. Living Room -- This area is the gathering place and connection to community and family. Ideally it is attractive, comfortable, inviting, and facilitates communication between occupants and visitors.
5. Bathrooms -- These are spaces for cleansing and purification. The area is about releasing what you don’t need. Ideally it is a well lit and well ventilated space.
6. Kitchen -- Kitchens are considered the heart of a space. They symbolize prosperity and financial resources (because they are the place where you connect with what sustains you). Ideally, kitchens are clean, light, airy and surrounded with symbols of abundance (like fruit, vegetables, etc).
7. Study/Office -- This is where we express creative energy. It's related to our accomplishments, goals, and successes. Ideally this space symbolizes and supports what you want to accomplish in it.
9. Basement -- This area symbolizes our foundation in life. It relates to the unconscious mind and things deeply rooted in you (possibly even suppressed desires). Ideally the basement is a clean, useful, clutter free space.
10. Closets -- Closets represent our unconscious mind. Although things may seem out of sight, they are not really out of mind. Closets, and what's in them can be a symbol of the things we don't want to deal with .. those "skeleton's in the closet" can be scary to face! Ideally closets are light, clutter free, organized and an appealing space.
11. Electrical Systems -- The electrical system is like our bodies own nervous system. Your nervous system will resonate with the electrical impulses flowing through your space. Keep your electrical system in good repair to encourage focus and calmness in your life (and to discourage "a short fuse" or "burnout").
12. Septic System -- This area relates to the digestive/intestinal system and the immune system. If it's not working properly it acts similar to clutter, backing up energy in the space, causing our lives to slow down and get clogged/stuck. Keep this system in good working order to prevent "back ups", including those related to our inability to release old issues.
14. HVAC System -- This area relates to the respiratory system. Ideally this system is in good working order to prevent allergies or other immune sensitivities.
