The Benefits of ‘Home’ Ownership


Artwork by Amy Justen "De Brasil con Amor" Collection

 To own your own home is a wonderful thing. After all, you OWN it! It is your space. You can decorate to your heart’s content. Re-decorate at any time and if you are so inclined, you can completely demolish and reconfigure the whole thing!

There are many benefits to owning your home but of course, there is the responsibility for the upkeep as well. Things get old and need replacing. It has to be cleaned, vacuumed and at times, you must remove unwanted “guests” such as spiders or other nasty little free loaders.

Those of you who often read my blog can probably already guess where I’m going with this. If you are a new reader, welcome to “Daily Muse” and please read on. 🙂

Whether or not you own the ‘place’ where you live, you already have your own home. Home really IS where the heart is!Your home is your BODY and there are amazing benefits to owning it and being HOME.

Your home is your sanctuary. A place to rest and be yourself. Your home holds your answers. When you own your home which includes the space within & around it, there is ease. It is a comfortable place for your spirit to live.

When was the last time you checked in with yourself to see what is inside? When you look there do you find it decorated to someone else’s tastes? Is it a comfortable place? Does it feel safe to be there? Do you mindlessly pick up the mail (other energy) and leave it any old place? Do you take your home for granted?

Just like owning the place you live, there are benefits AND the responsibility of caring for it. How often do you tend to your own needs and what your body wants? Are you getting enough rest? Taking time to de-stress? Do you have so much of your attention outside of you that you forget to come home?

I’ve always foumd it interesting when someone says to me that they don’t have time for themselves. Here’s a newsflash…YOU need to MAKE time for you to come home! No one else can do this for you. If you’re saying ‘I’ll be home for Christmas’ why not come home NOW?

Your spiritual essence is very smart! If ‘home’ needs redecorating, there are guests that are still there from the party last week, or dare I say unwanted guests that came to the party and never left, your spirit is going to hang around until you clear out a space for it to come home to!

One way to describe ‘hanging around’ is that spaced out feeling, as if you are watching yourself in a dream. When you bring yourself back home you find clarity, you are alert, have more energy and awareness increases.

All you have to do is take a few moments each day to clean out, update and take notice of what is really YOU in there! Cleaning is good for the soul and you have the ABILITY & RIGHT to clear out anything you want to! Your body is YOURS so OWN it! Your body..Your space…Your HOME.~Shine Your Light Debbie

  1. A great post Debbie and thank you! I received this a few days ago but only read it now – perfect timing, again. “When the student is ready, the teacher appears”… Amongst the things on my agenda today, I’m going to create some space to do some “house cleaning”, and am really looking forward to it. Have a gorgeous day beautiful soul. love from Ali x
