The Emotional Meanings of Rooms
Every room in your home serves an emotional function in your life. Wherever your hotspots are, look at difficulties you are having with the issues that correspond with the meaning of that room.
Entryway — transition.This is your Gate between the outside world and your inner sanctum. It should be clean, clear, well lit and most of all welcoming. It's where you "equalize" the emotional pressures inside as you come and go (in the same way the body equalizes itself when descending in an airplane with popping ears. Any issues you might have with comings and goings, like getting out to work on time or re-connecting with family and home life at the end of the day, might show up here. Is your foyer a gracious reentry or a chaotic one?
Woah. Are my life difficulties really showing up in my messes ? Does this mean that I can now justify my perpetually messy entryway, or does it mean that giving it a good cleaning could help get me to work on time tomorrow ? :P
