Hestia ~ Home

The Myth: “Hestia is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. Her name means hearth, the sacred fire, and Hestia is the virgin goddess of the sacred hearth. The hearth was at the center of families and tribes. Transferring fire from one sacred hearth to another represented continuing heredity.”

The Message: “This card is all about the warmth and the spirit of the home. It indicates that both home and family are especially important at this time.

Our families are not just our blood relatives, but they are the people who care for and nurture us in our lives and the people for whom we deeply love and care. Our connection to family reminds us of who we are and brings us back to our roots both culturally and personally, giving us a sense of continuity, of being a part of something greater than ourselves. Home is this feeling.

Home is also the ground we create for ourselves: a place of security, peace, and warmth. we rejuvenate ourselves in this place so that we may have the energy to operate in the world.

This is a time for connecting to the nourishing energy of home and family. You can be anywhere in the world to do this; all you need to do is connect to the space within yourself that allows you to feel strong, safe, and warm.

This is a time for creating the right ‘home’ space for yourself. If you feel that your home is contaminated, then you must do whatever is necessary to cleanse it. You cannot hope to operate from a clear space within your life or the world unless you are operating from a clear space within yourself and your home. If you have destructive personalities around you, you must create boundaries and remove these people from your immediate space.

This is also a time to connect to those who are your true heart’s family, to those who love you and remind you of who you truly are.”*

I have just recently had my home, myself and my children cleared by a friend of mine who’s life purpose is to assist in clearing lower vibrational and dense energies from spaces, people, chakras, etc. I am amazed at the difference this has made to our family dynamics (if you are interested in his services, please contact Leith at Rainbow Spiral Energy Spacekeeper directly). I was also inspired to clean and clear out all the old, take a few things down off the walls, donate things that we no longer need. In combination, it has made an enormous difference to generally improve the chi of the space, I feel fantastic and the kids have noticed a difference too. 

This is a great time to look at anything in your living space that does not hold a positive or higher vibrational energy. Get rid of anything that does not serve a purpose and just clutters up the space. It is also time to look closely at relationships and assess if there is anyone in your life right now who is doing more harm than good. All of these things have an effect on us, body, mind and spirit. If you are not sure, look for signs: does an object, space or person make you feel drained, frustrated, anxious or overwhelmed? Do you feel repelled or like you should flee the situation? Do you feel that you are being used or your energy is being sucked away? All these are signs that there is unhealthy or toxic energy in your presence.

It is also important to create boundaries with people who ask too much of you. Learn to say no, learn to walk away and learn that you are not here to “fix” someone, you can support them, but you are not responsible for their behaviour or their choices, (unless they are dependents such as disabled, elderly or small children and need your care and assistance of course). You can guide people or advise them, but you cannot compromise yourself for them. Creating healthy boundaries allows people to learn the lessons they are meant to learn in their own time. It also allows (or forces) them to take responsibility for their own behaviour. And you for yours.

Goddess ~ Vesta: Home

Daily Goddess Card ~ Vesta; Home

Vesta: “Your household situation is improving, either through a move or a healthy change in the occupants.”

Your message from Vesta: “There is an undying flame within your soul, and it is the light, seed and spark of your consciousness. Your outer world reflects your inner world. Take a look around your home. Does it reflect warmth? If not, this is easily remedied and oh so important to do. It is a simple task of using your creative imagination to add warm energy to your household, such as lighting the fireplace or some candles, adding cozy blankets and pillows, or displaying greeting cards and fresh flowers. By warming up to your outer world, your inner flame responds to meet it. This increases your energy level, which automatically shifts all outward appearances toward the better. Watch how these simple steps recharge the flame within everyone in your household. This flame cleanses away negativity and brings in the new with vigor and irresistible invitation.”

Various meanings of this card: You are moving to a new home. You have just moved. A new person is moving in. Someone is moving out. There is increased romance and/or harmony in the home. A problem with neighbours is resolving. Clear the space in your home. Remodel. Know that your home is safe and protected.

About Vesta: (pronounced VEST-uh0: Vesta is the Roman goddess of home and hearth. Vesta is a fire goddess who brings warmth to house holds, both as a temperature and as an emotion. In ancient Rome, a temple in her honour bore a flame that burned continually. Call upon Vesta to oversee any changes you would like to make in your living situation.”*

This might be a great time for you to cleanse your house. When I say cleanse, it goes beyond cleaning, although that is the first step. You must clean and de-clutter your house before you can make it feel warm and inviting… well unless you are a hoarder I guess!! So, once you have cleaned and de-cluttered, then the next step is to throw open all the doors and windows and completely air out your house. I remember my parents doing this before they had guests over when I was a kid, they would clean and vacuum and dust and at the end they would open all the doors and windows and all of a sudden the energy of the whole house was new. You need that connection to outside.

Next make sure that you apply a little Feng Shui. If you are aware of the Feng Shui Baguas, you can apply some of the ideas to maximize the flow of positive energy in your house, have a look at this simplified map by Carrie Paris:

There are several great books on Feng Shui too, one of the ones I have found helpful and simple is Move Your Stuff, Change Your Life: How to Use Feng Shui To Get Love, Money, Respect and Happiness by Karen Rauch Carter.

I have applied several Feng Shui techniques to our home, including a small fountain in the Wealth and Prosperity sector, plants in the Health and Family sector, a wind chime in the Good Fortune sector, crystals in the Spiritual Sector as well as in the Career and Wisdom sectors, well, actually I have crystals all over the house! I have also placed plants and crystals at the main entrance to the house which always attract positive attention from anyone who comes. There are so many ideas, pick the ones that resonate with you. I’m still looking for the perfect red pillows to add to my couch and a picture to put on the wall, probably energy art!
