Most of us are very responsive and reactive to our surroundings. Certain places just make us feel good. We can sense it in our bodies when a building, a room, a corner or a natural setting contains the kind of light and color that makes us feel comfortable and relaxed. Ancient architects knew this and designed sacred spaces such as the Chartres Cathedral in France and The Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem according to the tenets of sacred geometry.
You’ve probably had the experience of walking into someone’s home and instantly feeling relaxed, comfortable and at peace. You’ve undoubtedly had the opposite experience of entering spaces that immediately made you feel anxious, edgy and uptight. There is an almost mystical transfer of energy and feeling.
