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 what is around you, so you can curate spaces in which you can fully relax. Creating the right surroundings for yourself is an act of self-love.
Whereas you cannot always make things exactly as you want them, you can try when time and space allow.
For the Visionary Empath, you do best when you can surround yourself with information, clearly defined spaces for different projects, and people you love. Of course, you do like to spend some time alone, but you also thrive in shared living spaces, co-ops, and multigenerational housing. For this reason, you may have to consciously make your own space. Having your own office, sleeping space, studio space, etc. gives you a sense of peace and control over your self-care.
Things for you to keep in mind:
- Quiet time – It is essential that you carve out at least some space for quiet time. Turn away from your phone, music, media, and socialization to sit with yourself. Let yourself reflect and find a sense of calm, and even inspiration in the silence.
- Seating and lounging – Comfortable places to sit for various activities are very important to you. Set up your spaces with pillows, cushions, and different chairs to be able to move from the floor to a table depending on what activity you are doing. These variations in your environment change your perspective, which helps you relax when it is time.
- Designed spaces – You do best when you have clearly defined spaces for particular purposes. You dislike having to work in the same place as you eat for example. Ensure you have created boundaries around the different areas in your life to clearly designate what they are for. Knowing your room is for sleep, meditation, intimacy, etc. helps you when it comes to relaxing and enjoying some self-care. If your living space is smaller, consider looking into room dividers or other creative ways to make a division of space.
