Home is Where the OM is
PRACTICAL ADVICE FOR INVITING IN JOY with CARRIE LESKOWITZ
We have all heard "Home is where the heart is" but I love the definition that my guest, Author and Interior Designer-Carrie Leskowitz, gives of HOME on this week's podcast:
"Home is the combination of ourselves and our living space."
About my guest:
Carrie Leskowitz is an award-winning author, interior designer, life coach and Feng Shui practitioner with over 20 years of experience transforming both spaces and lives. As founder of Carrie Leskowitz Interiors, and author of Om for the Home; A holistic approach to Interior Design for your overall wellbeing body, mind and spirit, she helps clients nurture the holistic connection between their homes and their overall wellbeing through self-exploration and inquiry. Her beautifully curated homes focus on the mind- body connection and discovering sustainable joy within your living space.

This conversation is an honest and insightful look at the transformative power of an energetically-aligned home from 2 designers who have seen miracles happen, within our own lives and the lives of our clients.
You are sure to be inspired by Carrie's journey from Fashion to Interior Design to Life Coaching to Author. Her extensive training makes her uniquely qualified to help us move through our issues and the challenges we face by looking inward and at our environment.
Carrie shares with us how the insights and actions detailed in her book, OM for the Home, which was born from a personal medical crisis can be applied to your home to create an environment that supports sustainable joy.
One of the Exercises that she shares from her book is called "Seeing with New Eyes." This is an assessment that you can do TODAY to begin the energetic transformation.
She explains how to apply life coaching skills to create more awareness around your harmful thought patterns.
"How you do one thing, is how you do everything. It is all connected," says Carrie.
Which is absolutely true!
Carrie shares real world stories of discoveries that clients made using her tools to make dramatic changes, in both their homes and their lives.
I am sure that you can identify with at least one of her examples.
I sure did!
If something that someone else is doing is triggering you, it is important to ask WHY?
It may be difficult at first, but the results on the other side of that question can be life-altering!
Finding the messages your home is giving you can guide you to deep insights + revelations that help you expand and grow into the life you desire.

OM for the HOME by Carrie Leskowitz
The sacred place you call home supports the foundation for your inner balance and an empowering, fulfilling life. When limiting beliefs, negativity, and stress surround you, it’s time to dive deep into who you are to build an environment where you are at home within yourself.
Crystal to Work With:
Clear Quartz is one of the purest examples and is considered to be the light bringer. It’s an amazing amplifying stone, meaning that whatever you pour into it, will pour out tenfold. The clarity of its many faces can spark memory, hone concentration, and bring your whole being back to balance
Color to Work With:
Green is the color of life + vitality. It also represents stability, serenity, + fertility. As the color of life in the natural world, it's also used to attract economic wealth, as it symbolizes prosperity in its most natural form.
Chakra to Work With:
We talk of intuition in other areas of the body, but denying your own intuitive nudges + not speaking up for yourself + your desires will result in ailments in the throat, thyroid, chest, lung, and mouth areas. You don't always have to express yourself verbally. Surrounding yourself with colors you authentically love, can be healing to these areas.
"What does this mean for me?"
During the New Moon phase, the Universe is ripe for receiving your intentions and transforming them into realized dreams. It is a time of fresh beginnings + untapped potential.
Clear off a space and dedicate it to what you would like to see unfold in the next 30 days.
"What else is happening?"
The Aquarius New Moon is occurring on Friday, February 9th. This lunation initiates a change in our collective awareness. And since it’s happening in the visionary sign of the water bearer, it invites us to tend to the seeds of our ideal futures. (from the Chiani App)
