The idea for this blog came from the name of it, Beyond Spaces, which is inspired by Holistic Interior Design. Within this practice, we literally go beyond the physical world of furniture and decor into things like the energy of a space, client goals, sustainability, non-toxic materials, reconnecting with nature and being more mindful and intentional about our spaces – all of which, have incredible benefits.
Since I was in my early 20’s I have always been enthralled with the metaphysical and always knew there was more to this world than what we are able to see and touch. In my 30’s I continued to read self-help/ spiritual books and worked with a bunch of healers that showed me that there was definitely more than just the physical world. In 2016 I learned Vedic Meditation and was introduced to Ancient Indian Vedic knowledge and I hit my spiritual stride. As I practiced meditation and the teachings, I have watched my reality and outside world shift entirely. Through meditation, calming of the mind and daily moments of transcendence, I have changed my thoughts and become much more aware of them. This has helped me become more present and as a result, change the way I experience the world. There is less stress, less reactivity and more happiness. Synchronicities happen all the time and the Universe communicates with me all the time. Life is just- better.
Thanks to my Holistic Interior Design and Feng Shui certifications I have pulled back another 10,000 feet in the air and am now able to see and affect the spaces I design and their inhabitants on a much deeper level. I not only design beautiful and functional spaces, but healthy ones that support the inhabitant and environment too. This blog is the place I come to share all of this amazing knowledge as well as my thoughts on life and how to make life better. I hope you enjoy it!
