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.
For the Witch Empath, you do best when you have just the right amount of stimulation in your environment. You don’t want it to be too busy, but you don’t tend to be someone who needs very low stimulus surroundings with blank walls and minimal noise.
Your preference is for clean environments, but you’ll settle for a little clutter here and there. Overall, you like things you can look at and interesting items you can rest your eyes on. A beautifully curated and artistic space is best.
Things for you to keep in mind:
- Art & Objects – Notice what items surround you. Every item tells a story, and each and every piece you bring into your life has a backstory. You know how to appreciate the purpose and meaning behind your things, the artistry, and the utility.
- Your personal library – You don’t feel at home without your reference books. Any environment you spend a significant amount of time in will tend to collect books. You feel comforted by having books around. When traveling, having a book with you gives you a sense of home no matter where you are.
