4 Foundational Principles for Harmony in Your Home

Topics: , ,

If I could share 500 words to inspire, this is the important wisdom I'd want to pass along to others...

  • I wish that someone had given me a blueprint for leading my best life years ago. I am thankful that I can share my more than 20 years of academic and experiential insights with you to help you design your own inspired life.

    Practicing the Home in Harmony lifestyle guided me to a healthy, vibrant, and joyful existence. Although my life has had its share of trials, I am grateful for the journey—which has also been filled with glorious moments that have left me in awe. Each moment, good or bad, has brought me to where I am today. Collectively, these moments have given me the experience, training, and expertise to teach this amazing lifestyle to you.

    The foundation of designing an inspired, healthy and vibrant home, body, mind and spirit is intended to help you define and navigate your own sacred path. Let’s look at these four foundational pillars:

    1. Home: Our home environments either nurture us or drain our energy. You either walk into your home and say “Thank goodness I’m home,” or you look at the stack of clutter on the table and feel defeat.

    2. Body: There is an old saying that goes something like this: “If you don’t have your health, you don’t have anything.” Our health affects every other area of our life. It’s important to create a body that exudes energy, good health, and vitality.

    3. Mind: It’s important in our fast-paced world to find the calm in the midst of chaos. Gaining a clear mind is critical to living your best life.

    4. Soul: Studies have shown that a vital component to finding bliss and inner harmony is to find your purpose in life and share it with the world.

    When I step back and look at my life, I see a rich, luxurious tapestry woven from a vibrant array of colorful threads. At this distance, a beautiful pattern emerges. But my individual life experiences—the separate strands within the tapestry—didn’t make sense at first, because they were so varied. Similarly, the individual pillars of the Home in Harmony have significance on their own—but together they create a truly inspired life.

    The four foundational pillars of the Home in Harmony can help you design the magnificent tapestry of your life. This is a template for extraordinary and inspired living. I encourage you to utilize its four pillars as the structure for a beautifully designed life.

    Having an inspired home, a healthy body, a calm mind, and a radiant inner light will help you not just survive but thrive. More specifically, you want to develop a home environment that nurtures you physically, mentally, and spiritually; a level of health and vitality that allows you to move through each day with grace and ease; a tranquil mind that rises above the chaos of modern living; and a state of passionate purpose that lets you share your shining gifts with the world.
