“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
All of us are energetic beings living in an energetic world. Everything in our universe carriers a vibration — including our material things.
Although we’re all capable of getting in touch with our spiritual side regardless of our environment and surroundings, sometimes we need a little help, and that’s what this list is for!
Here are 11 creative items that will help you connect with your spiritual side while raising your vibration and your home’s:

Essential oils are substances that have been extracted from roots, stems, bark, flowers or any other part of a plant. They’re typically used for healing purposes, but also can be used to make organic cleaning products and different lotions and serums.
When these oils come into contact with a person’s skin or are inhaled, they send chemical messages to the brain and are able to influence mood and perception.
To learn more about the healing power of essential oils, check out this book.

Like energy attracts like energy. When you say “thank you” every day for the things you have in your life, you’ll attract more to be thankful for.
Practicing daily gratitude doesn’t require a journal (you can also use the “notes” section of your phone or any spare notebook you have at home), but if you’re like me and easily forget, using a journal with prompts will help keep you on track.
Say thank you for three things every morning when you wake up, and every evening before bed and watch in amazement as your life transforms for the better right before your eyes!

Within the body, there are 7 focal energy centers known as “chakras“. In Sanskrit, chakra translates to “wheel“.
These internal energy centers keep life flowing within all of us. However, it’s not uncommon for one or more of these chakras to be imbalanced due to stress, depression or a multitude of other reasons.
Luckily, balancing your chakras is easy to do, and can be done regularly. You can balance your chakras by using these cleansing bath salts which are made with essential oils and herbs dedicated to helping restore each individual chakra.
To learn more about chakras, and to understand if yours are imbalanced and what to do, read this beginners guide. To understand how to use chakra bath salts to balance your chakras, use this bath guide.

Himalayan salt lamps are like an in-home energy rejuvenator. If you’re looking to get rid of “bad vibes” or want your home to feel refreshed, put one of these in your living room and/or bedroom.
Here’s how they work: when heated, Himalayan salt lamps attract water particles that evaporate off as a salt solution. Those particles turn into mostly negative ions which are oxygen atoms charged with an extra electron. These ions have a positive impact on heart rate and reduce blood pressure. What’s more — they’re also said to reduce stress and anxiety.
8.) Calendula Tea

Dreamcatchers have long been used by Native American tribes as a way to protect sleeping people, namely children, from bad dreams. These tribes believe at nighttime, the air is filled with the energy of the dreaming people, meaning both good and bad dreams float around when we sleep.
Dreamcatchers were designed in the form of a “spider web” that allows good dreams to pass through and float down to the beads and feathers, where they’ll softly land on the person sleeping below. Whereas, bad dreams get caught in the web.
Whether dreamcatchers actually work or not is debatable, but their symbolism remains the same and as such the energy vibrating within them is highly positive. Also, they make beautiful decorations!

11.) Sage Sticks
$7.49, Buy Now
When you think of sage sticks, you probably imagine some esoteric or overly “woo” ritual happening to rid bad spirits from a place.
But sage actually works much like the Himalayan salt lamps — it cleanses the surrounding air by changing the ions thereby rewiring the energy field of your home. The biggest difference is sage has a greater reach because one sage stick can be smudged throughout your entire house.
To learn more about sage, and how to smudge your house check out this article.
Above all remember, you have all of the power inside of yourself that you will ever need to reach your true spiritual nature and potential. As such, this list of items represents suggestions for how you can raise your vibration and the vibration of your surroundings, but it should not be used as a replacement for you doing the inner work necessary to become more connected to yourself and the universe around you.
