2) Keep the clean environments, organized and with specific functions. And that doesn’t mean we need to be obsessive, okay? It is just to keep everything in place and thus make everything more practical, fluid and vital.

(3) Pay attention to Gateway. It is one of the main points of entry and exit of energy. Always enter through it, leave it with a receptive aspect and with goals that can filter the energies. Plants are great for this – in several rooms, not just at the entrance to the house!
