What does your home say about your consciousness?

When I see silver energy around someone, it represents powerful, divine feminine energy. Silver is effective for increasing a sense of security in our lives, particularly at home. Silver has an established history of being associated with feminine power, as well as the moon.

In tribal societies, the moon, and therefore silver, is traditionally associated with divine feminine energy. But when I say “feminine” I am not talking about gender. Every person on the planet possesses both masculine and feminine traits that we can access.

I personally experience silver as calming and stabilizing. Just as a mama bear protects her cubs, silver will naturally make your home feel protected.

Your home is a reflection of your consciousness. I say this frequently and believe it to my core. This concept is also closely related to our relationship with silver energy.

What I mean is, the way you treat your living space is directly related to how you feel about your life in general. To be clear, this has nothing to do with money and everything to do with intention.

One of my favorite ways to gauge someone’s relationship with silver energy is by presenting the following scenario:

Imagine that, in this very moment, a new friend calls you unexpectedly. They are in your neighborhood and would like to stop by your house to say hello. How does this make you feel? You may respond with joy and enthusiasm at the prospect of seeing your friend. You might immediately invite them over and feel loving, energetic expansion at their arrival.

Or you might tell them that you need a few minutes and then quickly clean up various messes around your home.

Your home may be messy because you were not expecting guests. This is perfectly natural. But I am more referring to your overall attitude about having people in your personal space. If you struggle with this idea, working with silver will empower you to both protect and open the energy surrounding your home.

Your home might be dirty or there might be items lying around you do not want them to see. You might find it easier to just avoid the interaction entirely and tell them you are busy.

What you want to look at here is the feeling and energy behind your answer. Do you feel proud of sharing your home with other people, or do you feel something different? That feeling is being absorbed by your consciousness whether you know it or not.

If you struggle with this idea, working with silver will empower you to both protect and open the energy surrounding your home.

As a young adult I struggled with balancing silver energy in my home. Although my living spaces were pretty neat at first glance, I had a tendency to stuff things in drawers just to get them off surfaces and out of the way. Rather than properly organizing things, it was easier to just stuff them away and forget about them.

Looking back, I think that this silver energy imbalance stemmed from my parents getting divorced when I was an adolescent. Their irreconcilable differences made separation the right choice for them, but the stability of my home had been taken away at a formative time in my life.

As a result, I ended up moving out on my own at the age of 17, saying that I craved my independence, but what I truly craved was the home sanctuary I had lost. I just had not fully processed all of it at that point. Stuffing things in drawers was a physical manifestation of where I was emotionally.

After working with silver energy, I became aware that my home did not reflect who I wanted to be. I made a conscious effort to not only treat my living space with more respect, but to also “unpack” any emotions that were buried within me.

When we activate and work with silver energy, we are allowing the universe to show us how we can bring our home life into a more harmonious state. A great way to boost silver energy is by taking care of something related to the maintenance of your home. It could be painting a wall, repairing a leaky faucet, or tidying up an office.

What is one easy way that you could tend to your home this week? Let me know in the comments! Show your home some love, and silver energy will reward you with a calming sense of safety.

    I am confused about what to do with the colour. Do I put more silver things around my home to boost my intentions on cleaning and maintaining a tidy home? Cuz right now it’s a mess

    Thank you for your “silver energy” awareness. It lovingly supports my struggle to balance beauty, spaciousness and clarity with clutter removal in more aspects than one. I am mindful and appreciative of my process. It is slow and I choose to live fully in the light that exists in my home. There is much beauty and divinity created despite what feels like chaos on some days.

    Hey Dougall, I am enjoying your Life in Color book tremendously. Thank you so much for enlightening and impowering me with your knowledge and gifts. I am wondering if you can advise me as to what color(s) I can activate to help me stop procrastinating and help me de-clutter my home. Do I have a letting go problem or something else? I am not a hoarder. I just tuck things away (when company is coming) in ‘unseen’ places and never seem to get back to them. Are there colors to make the job easier?
    Again, thanks for all you do and are, JoAnn

    I have a silver tee that I’ve wanted to wear to the office. I was worried it was too funky. I think the silver energy needs to come to work with me. My office, predominantly male, needs some strong female energy.

    Very intriguing because I’ve always liked the metal silver. It feels soft. I’m not sure I integrate it a lot otherwise though. Interestingly, we needed to replace our 70’s kitchen appliances over the holidays. And of course, these days — they are “silver”! GEE! This is such a revelation to realize. Because we adore the shifts made in the entire space of our 500 sq 1 bedroom condo. And yes, I attributed it a lot to the updating of the kitchen appliances, and knocking out an entry partition to move in and out the appliances — but the fact that they are silver, I didn’t “get” the advantage! In fact, I had built up an aversion to silver appliances perhaps because it seemed a “cold” color on an appliance. Wow. I not only like them I love the entire renovation. And now I’m going to meditate silver. Because I still feel the need to make this space work for us. Hi ho Silver! Thanks Dougall.

    Silver color sounds like a much needed color in my life right now. I just never unpacked my things – it never felt safe to do so. I realized on Mithers Day.

    Thank you for this Doug.
    My way in bringing love to my space at the moment is having plants in my house, every time I look at them I instantly feel better.
    Ordering your book as I finish writing this. Much love to you from Australia.

    It might help to keep in mind that the two primary Creative Rays of the higher-octave spiritual energies responsible for all manifestation on this planet are the Gold Ray (the “heart” energy, often recognized as the Christ Consciousness) and the Silver Ray (or “head” energy, known to Native tribes as the great being Sanat Kumara, principal overseer of our solar system). So when you make an effort to improve your home environment as Dougall suggests, you are also inviting a very powerful spiritual energy into your environment. Something to think about to get over procrastination!

    I keep my home pretty clean, but I have so many animals it doesn’t stay clean for long. I’m not sure what colour energy would make me a little calmer with my animals and the amount of time it takes to keep my house clean (because of their interaction in my home)?.

    Dougall, this works WONDERS! Without any intentions other than practicing “activation” as you described in “your life in color”, I’d been activating silver. Day 3, I suddenly felt like cleaning my windows! Just a surface clean, no biggie, but way overdue. Felt good. Day 5 I litterally woke up with enthusiasm for taking a load of junk from the garage to the landfill–which I’d never done before. Had fun little adventure (landfills–who knew?). Day 7 and out of the blue (or out of the sliver) I could NOT stop cleaning–I even got behind the fridge! It wasn’t hyper or perfectionist, either: it was …fun! This is wild!! I’m not usually any kind of fan of housework, and I’d been letting stuff slide for a long time. Just using silver activation, no plan, and I am bursting with enthusiasm to clean. This works!! So excite to see what else happens as I work through the book!

    I am about to have my walls painted, planning to use certain colors like pink in order to have more unconditional love in my home. Did i correctly understand the way to use colors?
