Your home is supposed to be a place where you feel relaxed, comfortable and safe. It is supposed to be your refuge from the world. But there are going to be times when negative energy gets to your home. Since negative energy is sticky, there’s a good chance that it will remain inside your home. When this happens, spending time at home will no longer be relaxing. Rather, it’s going to feel gloomy and stale. You may end up stressed and annoyed. Worse, it may cause anxiety and depression.
Consider cleansing your home when someone with negative energy comes into your home, when you or any member of your family is constantly stressed, anxious or lonely or when your house starts to feel uncomfortable.
There are several ways to cleanse your home from negative energy. Here are some of them.
Smudging is the art of cleansing yourself, as well as your environment. The act of burning sacred herbs such as sage, sweetgrass, frankincense and cedar can clear away the negative or stagnant energy from your home and bring it back to a state of harmony, peace and balance.
Smudging involves burning bundles of herb and allowing the smell to spread throughout your home. Smudge removes anything unwanted including anger, fear, negative energy and even earthbound or lower spirits.
Negative energy enters your home through the windows and doors. As such, protecting your entrances is essential to prevent negative energy from entering your home. Crystals such as Black Tourmaline and Black Onyx are best to placed at entrances as they repel negative energy, keeping it away from your home.
Gridding is also an effective way to cleanse your space. This involves placing crystals in certain rooms in your home to protect, cleanse and bring in positive energies. Clusters of celestite, apophyllite, amethyste and clear quartz will dissipate energy by sending it out in all directions. They can also keep your living space clear and vibrant.
Salt crystals have an amazing ability to absorb negative energy. Pour salt in every corner of your home and leave it for 48 hours. Sweep and vacuum the salt after 48 hours. The salt will absorb the negative energy in your home or from the people who are sick or fighting.
Another option is to mix a few tablespoons of salt with water and then pour it into a spray bottle. Spray the solution into the door, floor and walls. Do this in every room in your home to room to effectively cleanse and protect the room.
