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.
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.
As the Mystic Empath, you do best when you can surround yourself with comfort items. You like to have things around you that create a cozy environment. Cushiony chairs, natural wood, and warm tones tend to be the spaces that make for the best energies for you to enjoy your self-care.
Things for you to keep in mind:
- Alone time: Ensure you have enough time carved out of each week for you. It is important that you have at least some space—even if it is just 5 or 10 minutes regularly—to tune into yourself, your feelings, and your moods for improved self-care and awareness.
- Candles: Fire has a big impact on your mood. Having a lot of candles around or a daily ritual of candle lighting should be something to consider incorporating into your self-care routines.
- Journaling: Having several journals around you to record your experiences helps you plan better for your self-care. If you write down what works and what doesn’t and review, you can more precisely start to tailor the things you need into your environment.
