Energetically Cleansing Your Home For the Holidays

cleansing your home

Holiday parties and family celebrations bring an immense amount of energy into your home. Whether positive or negative energy, people bring his or her own energy with them and your space absorbs it. With so many people coming in and out during this time of year, its important to take extra measures to energetically cleansing your home to prevent negative energies from dwelling within.

What You’ll Need

  • Sage
  • Bell or singing bowl
  • Purified water
  • Fresh Rosemary sprigs
  • Fresh Basil
  • Cloves
  • Spray Bottle

Energetically Cleansing Your Home

  1. Put the purified water, rosemary, basil and cloves into a large bowl and let it sit for two hours in the sun. If you have rose petals, add them as well.
  2. As you’re letting the water charge, sage your home. The corners absorb the most energy, so make sure to move away any furniture and allow the sage smoke to reach into every corner.
  3. After you finish sageing each room, walk through with a bell or singing bowl and ring it. Again, make sure to ring it in all the corners.
  4. Finally, add the water to a spray bottle and use it to purify your home by spraying all the surfaces and objects you can and wiping them down. Make sure you spray and wipe the corners of each room. As you spray and purify your home repeat the affirmation: I now break through any stuck energy, stuck emotion and with each spray the energy is dispersed and gone.

This Feng Shui combination makes use of fire, water and sound elements to cleanse the space. The fire element through the use of sage or incense activates the cleansing process. The sound disperses the negative energies and the water element purifies. These three levels of cleansing make this cleansing ritual extremely powerful, which is especially useful after people are moving in and out of your space during the holidays.

    Hi, I was wondering if you can tell me an easy way to purify an older house? It is a house where relationships end up going bad.
    Also I would like to know something for an office to promote calm.
    Thank you for your help.

      Hi Dawn! Take a look at this post, and follow step #2! May I also ask if you’ve cleansed your mattress? Sometimes memories and negative energy – especially in terms of relationships – gets stored and stuck in your mattress. For your office, try a soothing crystal like selenite, blue lace agate, amethyst or fluorite!
