RECLAIM MY SPACE: A Journey to Clarity #3

14 01 2011

A Written Journey from one of OuttaSpace Clients:  Entry #3

After a few rounds of working with Cristina on recharging my home’s energy and reclaiming my living space (post breakup), I can happily say: SUCCESS!

Before: I put no love into my space and surroundings. The decor was nonexistent and drab. I’d feel uneasy being at my flat for prolonged periods of time. I’d avoid hosting get-togethers at my place out of a subtle sense of embarrassment. I was going through a rough and trying time – getting over my breakup and learning how to be on my own and “single” was a challenge for me. It’s definitely true that our outer environment is nothing more than a reflection of what’s going on within us. My mind and energy was in total chaos, and my home mirrored it. I’d spend hours tidying up only for it to return to the same messy state is had been in a week earlier.

After: As I started to really shift my thoughts and mindset regarding myself and my life, it “mysteriously” became easier and automatic to take proactive steps towards making my home my sanctuary. Little by little I worked with Cristina to strategically revamp and make the most out of each room. Before I knew it my apartment exuded peace, tranquility and sensuality. It felt delicious to spend alone time. I thoroughly enjoyed having friends over on a regular basis…

Another big part of my work with Cristina entailed separating my workspace. This was one of the hugest perks! The energy in that space is now open and conducive to actually getting work done! It’s fun to work from home and I look forward to it. Thank you a thousand times Cristina for helping me reclaim my space… Both within and without!

RECLAIM MY SPACE: A journey to clarity #2

25 10 2010

A Written Journey from one of OuttaSpace Clients:  Entry #2

In my second visit with Cristina Maria we tackled space maximization issues.  I took my first trip to Ikea and on a very strict budget and purchased many strategic items that completely TRANSFORMED the look and most important THE FEEL of my home. I could really feel the energy start to shift. Cristina helped me realize that I needed to separate my work area from my relax area and she suggested we do this by diving the living room from my office area using my shelves as “walls” or “dividers”, ingenious yet simple – it ended up looking AMAZING and really creating that separation that now allows me to be more focused and productive while I work, and then shut off completely when I’m done for the day and relaxing. Thank you Cristina for helping me make my apartment a HOME and my SANCTUARY! Stay tuned for the next visit – I’ll be reporting directly from Ikea!

RECLAIM MY SPACE: A journey to clarity #1

20 09 2010

A Written Journey from one of OuttaSpace Clients:  Entry #1

Space matters. Really, it does. I didn’t fully believe this until recently, when I had the pleasure of connecting with Space Master, Cristina Maria. She said something to me that really hit home: “Your environment is an outer reflection of your mind” (or something along those lines…)
“Sh*t,” I thought, “That doesn’t reflect a pretty picture of me!” I’ve been in transition this year, and reclaiming my space has been that breath of fresh air I have so desperately needed. I’ve never really been one to put much attention on “making my house a home”, but now that my space was to be SOLELY mine, I wanted it to be a sanctuary for me. As I looked around at my apartment I scanned the energy – dead. The walls were barren, there was no warmth, major clutter , clashing furniture… it was cold and definitely NOT the reflection of me I wanted to see.  My space was not conducive to productivity (I wasted SO much time EVERYDAY looking frantically for anything and everything), clarity, creativity, inspiration, you name it. Basically my space was not workflow conscious… And considering I run my business from home that was no good… any (savvy) solopreneur knows that their space MUST be workflow conscious… which opens way to inspired BIG ideas and constant effectiveness.
My initial consultation with Cristina was beyond powerful. She immediately got to the core of why I had been unknowingly resisting putting some “lovin” into my place… She went through every room and area and we assessed what I was envisioning, what was most practical, and how I could maximize my space whilst reusing items I already had. The session ended with a strategic plan beautifully intermixed with frugal shopping, relocating current furniture, recycling furniture by repainting, and more. We focused mostly on the living room, work area, foyer, bedroom and balcony. I was inspired and excited to see the changes that would be transpiring during the coming months… I was excited to finally be taking steps to make my home my sanctuary…
I made a trip to Ikea  a few days later with a clear idea about what I needed to get.  A few hours later, my apartment was completely transformed into my vision! What was most striking was the shift in energy – you could definitely feel the difference… the air felt light and more clear… I am so grateful to have the chance to work with Cristina, she’s so passionately determined to help people realize the oh-so-frequently overlooked connection between the quality of your mind and the inherent energy that lies in all of the objects we own.  Do yourself a favor today and scan your home. Ask yourself – Does my home reflect a side of me I want to see?
