You may have pictured what your dream house would look like, but what would it feel like? Most of your time at home is spent indoors, so it's far more important to feel a spiritual connection with your house.
You don't have to believe in any "new-age" stuff, but if you can clearly picture some animal representation of what you want your home to be, it's easier to communicate and express the characteristics you want.
Maybe it's a modest yet elegant small home like a bunny. Maybe you want something bold and dramatic like a wolf. Perhaps you value economy and robust utility above all, so the ox might be your totem.
Spend ten minutes and see what comes to mind. The more you focus your thoughts, the more motivated and confident you'll be in pursuing a new or renovated house.
