How to Rekindle Your Spiritual Connection With Home After the Pandemic

Spiritually

Though the pandemic has not yet completely ended, you are no longer confined to your house. And yet, spending all that time inside may have radically changed your relationship to the place where you once felt at peace. The time has come to reacquaint ourselves with the solace of home rather than the disquieting frustrations of prison. Bottom line: our household requirements and personal situations have finally evolved.

If we don’t want to get stuck in a rut, we need to be flexible and willingly accept the change. Instead of viewing our homes as places of punishing confinement, we must now embrace the opportunity of renewing them as sources of physical and spiritual warmth. Since the body acts as a receiver of energy, our internal state of calm, peace, and happiness is enhanced by being in a pleasant environment.

That’s why it’s so important to make our homes places where we can relax and recharge our spirits. Keeping things neat and tidy while also allowing for plenty of fresh air to circulate can help reduce feelings of stress and helplessness.

And yet, apart from this, what else can we do to maintain that energetic connection with our home? Since now is not the time to acquire new things, we must repurpose and recycle what we already have Finding something good to read, of course, can help and we recommend David Haldane’s writings on the topic of spirituality and home. He has authored four books: Berkeley Days(self-published, 2004), Nazis & Nudists (Black Rose Writing, 2015), Jenny on the Street (Black Rose Writing, 2021) and A Tooth in My Popsicle and Other Ebullient Essays on Becoming Filipino (Black Rose Writing, 2023). All deal with the challenges, joys, travails and rewards of finding a place to call home, most recently for Haldane and his family as American expats in the jungles of the Philippines.

Micro spaces

First, we suggest not cramming everything into one area but rather assigning a specific function to each room and corner. Therefore, make every effort to set aside one room (or a portion of one) for physical activity, another for sleeping, yet another for work, and yet another for relaxing.

You can trick your mind into thinking you’re altering your surroundings to suit the task at hand by doing this.

Combine your inner and outer worlds

To lessen the impact of the room’s closure, decorate it in a way that evokes the outdoors and space. Instructions, please. A good example would be relocating the plants from the balcony into the living room or wherever you spend the majority of your time.

Plants add oxygen to the air, but if you keep them in bedrooms while you sleep, you’ll need to remember to take them out before bed.

Simulating plant life with objects and vertical stripes can give the impression of open space if you don’t have any real plants. Use floral accents and fabrics with a natural feel to further enhance the ambiance.

Enough Sunlight

There is a direct correlation between the quality of lighting in a room and its ability to promote feelings of peace and cleanliness. That’s why, when possible, you should do things that require more concentration outside or near a window, where there is plenty of natural light.

If there are no natural light sources available, such as windows, then artificial lighting should be used to fill the area. The gloomier the environment, the more likely you are to be overcome by the negative feelings and thoughts that are already embedded within you.

Workplace isolation

Put together a workspace where you can relax and concentrate. It makes no difference whether it is in the bedroom, the living room, or the hallway. That it aids concentration is crucial. Hide and collect computer cables and clear the table so you can work undisturbed in your makeshift office.

Determining the optimal sitting position can have a positive effect on health. If you want to avoid stress, headaches, and sleep loss, you shouldn’t put the chair so that its back is facing the door.

The time has come for you to act

Small repairs, like patching cracks, clearing drains, and changing light bulbs, can make a big difference in how you feel about your home. Not just for the sake of ease but also to cut down on work.

Included in this is the common practice of thoroughly cleaning out cabinets and drawers to get rid of accumulated unused items. It’s time to get rid of them and give them a new lease on life.

Check up on your loved ones

Do not give up hosting get-togethers at your house if you are one of those who value such gatherings. Don’t shut out your loved ones; instead, make use of modern technology to keep in touch with them, no matter how far apart you may be.

Bringing the people you miss into your home will fill it with new life and make you feel closer to them.

Tend to your house 

Take some time to really take in your new house and the role it will play in your life. Make the space work for what you need it to, whether that’s an office or a place to relax after a long day at the office.

Get into regular cleaning habits and feel the positive energy that is generated in your home, which serves once again as a central location for social interaction and communal living.

Ease any sense of isolation by making your house your hub for interacting with the outside world.
