You walk into your home in a way that is different from the way you walk into any other home. In your home you have a sense of an order you prefer. In somebody else’s home you wouldn’t rearrange their furniture. Where you live speaks of where you have authority. This is your domain. Domain and dominion have multiple related meanings. Your domain speaks of a place you rightfully occupy like your house, your yard, your office, etc.
