“Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness.” – clergyman
Spiritually Protect Your Space:
A house blessing and cleansing is a spiritual ritual that is performed to cleanse a home of negative energy and spirits. This ceremony is common among many religions, including Catholics, Methodists, Unitarian Universalism, Buddhism, and others. Each religion and tradition has its own way of performing a house blessing, but all of them should be effective if done correctly. Home blessings and cleansings may have gotten their roots from the ancient Egyptians who had writings in their temples using water to get rid of evil and to purify.
The very first thing for you to do for this ritual is to provide your home with a thorough cleaning. You can also do as the tradition says and use a broom to sweep the residue out the front or back door.
If you’re wanting to have a house blessing performed for your home, you can contact your local religious leader or spiritual practitioner to have them perform it. You can also do a house blessing and cleansing yourself.
If you are looking to cleanse your home, you can use a cleansing prayer. Some samples of cleansing prayers include:
“I release all negative energy from this house, my family, and myself. I welcome in love, and light.”
I am grateful to the Lord for my family and home. May it be filled with only good and nothing negative.
I cleanse this home in God’s name, may he surround it with love, light, and protection against all negative energies and spirits.
May the Lord keep this dwelling pure, loving, and safe for all those who reside amongst it, and all of its guests. May it remain so for many years to come.
Smoke is often used in cleansing rituals as it is thought to help clear away negative energy. Purchase some sage smudge sticks and light a white sage candle to help with this.
Another way to cleanse your home is by using salt. Salt is thought to absorb negative energy and can be used in many ways, such as sprinkling it around the perimeter of your home or placing bowls of salt in each room. Use salt on your carpets to absorb not only odors but bad energy. After the blessing and cleansing you can line windows and doors to keep spirits and negative energy out. You can also dissolve sea salt in a spray bottle filled with water and mist the air of each room. Place a dish of salt on your altar if you have one.
You can also use Feng Shui to help clear away negative energy. This ancient Chinese practice involves the placement of objects in your home to create a balance and harmony.
Another option for cleansing your home is using sound. Tuning forks, singing bowls, and recorded holy music such as a Gregorian chant can be used to create positive vibes that will help to clear away negative energy and unwanted spirits.
Cleansing your home regularly will help to create a positive and peaceful environment.
Use holy water. Holy water can be purchased online, you can bless the water yourself or have it blessed by a priest, preacher, or minister. Cleanse the house using this blessed water. You can add this to a spray bottle and spray around the house or you can make the sign of the cross at the doorway of every room with it for protection.
Reiki can also help. Reiki is a form of energy healing that can be used to improve the vibrations in your home. You don’t need to be a practitioner to do it, you can learn it by taking a course online, but you could also hire a practitioner to come out and do some Reiki on you and your home. Reiki Masters can get rid of the negative energy that you may have inside you and in your home and replace it with positive energy.
Crystals can be an effective way to help as well. Different crystals have different properties that can help with the energy in your home. You can use some to cleanse and absorb the negative energy such as quartz, and Selenite and some for protection such as Black Obsidian and Amethyst. You must remember though, that crystals absorb bad energy and need to be cleansed every now and again. All of the above can be cleansed in water except for the Selenite. They all can be cleansed under the sun or the moon as well.
Certain essential oils can also be used to cleanse negative energy from a home. Simply put a few drops of oil into a diffuser to help purify the air in your home. Oils such as Sage, and Frankincense are good to use to cleanse and purify a space.
When you feel like your home is cluttered and is becoming full of bad energy, it may be time for a good house cleaning. Dirt and clutter can make it an unwelcoming place to be. Keeping a clean, clutter-free home keeps bad energy from congregating. Open your windows and let the sunshine in.
Earthbound spirits that may be in a home can affect the energy of the location. If you happen to have an earthbound spirit or residual energy from a spirit, you will want to treat it with caution and respect. Let the spirit know that you are not going to harm them and that you want to help. Explain to the spirit that they are no longer living, and they need to cross over into the light to be with their family and friends who have passed. Ask God to open the portal of light for them to cross over into. Call on the angels and the person’s spirit guides to help them to cross over into the light. Tell them not to be afraid and to go into the light where they will finally be at peace. Make it clear that the home is yours now and they are no longer welcome there.
Cleansing Prayer: Please clear this space of any negativity and fill it with positive energy. I ask for your help in this. Thank you. Amen.”
Sometimes writing down your intentions and placing them under a lit candle is a good way to help with it.
It is always a good idea to find out if there have been any deaths in your home. This would be an important factor in helping with your house cleansing. You may have to help an earthbound spirit that is residing in your home from a prior death in the house, to cross over. To help with this you can go to: https://www.diedinhouse.com/referral/9fba86d0 The Died In House program searches millions of records to determine if a death has occurred at your home’s location and gives you a report on it.
