Start by creating the right surroundings for your archetype
Studies have shown that color, music, and lighting can impact a person’s mood. For example, medical offices use calming tones of blues and greens to help ease the experience of patients. In addition, these are also energetically healing colors, so they may improve a patient’s recovery.
The subconscious mind picks up on everything, including the subtle unseen waves of feelings and moods. Therefore, it is important to take note of this, so you can curate spaces in which you can fully relax.
For the Lover Empath, you want to create a space where things feel low stimulus and aesthetically pleasing. Clutter and overly busy spaces can put you on edge. In addition, you prefer clean lines, along with gentle and light colors to uplift and bring about a positive vibe.
Creating the right surroundings for yourself is an act of self-love. While you cannot
always make things exactly as you want them, you can try when time and space allow.
Things for you to keep in mind:
- Company – who is around you is a prominent element in how you create comfortable surroundings. You like to be around people, but you are easily influenced by the emotions that others are feeling. Therefore, if you are trying to relax, meditate, practice self-care, etc. you want to make sure if people are present they are not going to interfere with your vibration.
- Clutter – you are easily overwhelmed by digital and physical clutter. Ensuring you keep files, shelves, and surfaces clear of excess stuff enhances the atmosphere for you. Small piles of paperwork, mail, and to-do lists detract from your self-care by redirecting your focus to business as opposed to having some you-time.
- Personal hygiene – your archetype can feel off balance if you are not able to practice your hygiene in the way you want. If you were rushed to get ready in the morning and had to skip a shower, for example, you might feel tired for the rest of the day. Regular rituals around cleanliness help you get into a relaxed state before or after a busy day.
