Holidays, crowds of family and friends, stressful, emotional times…its that time of year…. but its not just the “high traffic ” holiday season that can bring on the need to cleanse your home. All through the year, it is good practice to make a ritual of cleaning your home of unwanted negativity, earthbound spirits and low energies. Adjusting the emotional and spiritual vibration inside your house can restore harmony to all who dwell within it and make for smoother seas now that the winter has set in on us.
There are many different ways to cleanse your home and pep up its energy and most are so simple anyone can do them. I get paid to come into peoples houses and cleanse it before they move in or when stubborn energies are causing chaos to its living members but my favorite part is teaching people how to do it themselves!
First things first….
It is always good to start with a clean home… Declutter, dust, vacuum etc…a place for everything and everything in its place as the saying goes. This includes all rooms, closets, attics and basements. Stagnant and low energies love to get caught up in untidy areas and when removed energy flows fluidly and stays harmonized longer. This may not be the fun part for most but it is one of the most important steps.
Some of my favorite and efficient tools to use are some of the easiest to obtain.. Sage, Salt ,Stones and candles…Simple, right? YES it is! I also ALWAYS use prayer and the assistance of Archangel Michael (the protector). The prayer you use will depend on your religious or spiritual back round or you can say affirmations and it will have the same effect. Below are some methods you can use, read or try them all and see which fits best for you and your household.
Light the end of a white sage stick or loose sage until it flames and creates glowing embers, then blow it out. There should be plenty of white smoke now billowing out… Starting at your front door (open) say your prayer or affirmation and let the smoke go into every corner of the door frame.. Then start in every room clockwise from the front door. Fan the white smoke all over each room …in every corner, closet, under the bed etc and repeat your prayer or affirmation. Continue this clockwise around the house till you need up back at the front door. Once the house has been saged state “only positivity and light may enter this home” Then close the door! Stamp out your sage stick carefully to continue use at another time.
Prayer and affirmations… these can be used alone in each room or in conjunction with the sage and all cleansing techniques.
The Lords Prayer
“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil for thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever and ever. Amen”
“To the Divine Spirit (or Universal Energy, Supreme One etc), we summon love, harmony, peace, and prosperity into our home. May we be blessed with good health, happiness, success, and abundance. May this home be a sacred dwelling for us and our children. May those who visit us feel peace and love. We decree that this home is now shielded from harm, illness, or misfortune. Thank you for bringing divine light, love and energy into our hearts, rooms, and endeavors. With tremendous gratitude, we thank you. In full faith, so be it and so it is!”
“Dear God, Blessed Mother Mary, Jesus and Archangel Michael, Cleanse, clear and banish all negative energies and spirits from this home, and please Bless this home with your pure White Light of Love and the holy spirit and Archangel Michaels blue of Protection”
“With Archangel Michael by my side i charge this room and house with positivity and light. All negativity must leave this dwelling now!”
“I banish all negative energies from this house with the energy of love and light.”
“Archangel Michael, cleanse and clear all negativity, earthbound spirits and low energies from this room. Only peace, love and light is welcomed here.”
“I fill this room with positivity, love and light”
Once you cleansed your house, spread “charged” sea salt across front and back door openings , window sills, and sprinkle around the outside of your home again saying your prayer or affirmation. If you have pets, for safety opt instead for pouring the sea salt in small bowls and place in each room for 24 hours to absorb any residual negativity. You can buy “charged” sea salt or create it using moonlight, reiki energy, intention’s and prayer (most opt to buy to save time). Once this is done throw away the sea salt from the bowls outside the house in the garbage. DO NOT reuse the sea salt for any purpose or you could release the negativity back into your home.
Use white candles because they represent pure positive and will draw in those from the light ..they will aid in your prayers to rid of the negativity in your home. While lighting the candle make sure that you state the reason why you are doing this, (to rid of negative entities or energies etc) and saying your prayer, those of the light will respond and help you. I like using white tea candles as they dont take long to burn through yet still do the job well but any white candle is good….
Gemstones and crystals….
For centuries gemstones and crystals have been used to absorb negativity from people and places . Find ones that speak to you and place on top of door jams or window sills in every room of the house. They keep the areas clean longer and help with the flow of positive energy. Clear quartz , rose quartz and selenite are my personal go to crystals but other good ones to have are snowflake obsidian, amethyst and tigers eye ..they all have great harmonizing and protecting qualities…
Again when you are doing any one of these methods make sure you have faith and state your intention and keep repeating your prayer of affirmation until you are done.
Its so easy to keep your home flowing with positivity. Use each of these methods on their own or combine with others to make it even stronger.
As always i wish you all Angel love and light
