House Cleansing Ritual
History of the House
A house cleansing ritual is a way to remove any
negative energies that might be lurking in your home.
Reasons for doing this vary, but could include:
Moving into a new house.
You feel there is negativity in your house
You have had a run of bad luck.
You sense an unwelcome energy,being or ghost.
Any time the energy feels heavy, dark, lethargic, or grimy.
It doesn't hurt to do this in your home on a regular basis.
You will definitely feel a difference in your home, and
yourself, and your whole house will be cleansed, and clean.
I like to start by lighting a candle that I will take from
room to room as I clean. You would not want to leave a candle
unattended, or near something that may catch fire, or knock
it over. Sage smudges have also been used.
You may also invite any deities or guides that you may like
to help you. I like to think happy thoughts, and concentrate
in the cleansing/cleaning process. Getting in to the corners,
and crevasses where the bad can hide, like spiders do.
I include in this dusting, sweeping, and washing down the
floors, and the cleaning of objects in the room.
After I am done with one room, I move on to the next, and
repeat the process until I am satisfied that I have removed
the evil/bad/ unwanted/negative...whatever you may wish to
call it. You may also wish to carry your candle/smudge stick
from window to window, and to all corners of the room, and
entryway working the candle/smudge in a circle spiraling in
to the center. Banishing that which you do not want, and
freeing the room of all negative.
There are those who also like to go around the outside of the
house as well, even around the entire property, at every
entryway. You may do what ever it is that makes you feel good,
and safe. You can adapt this ritual to suit your needs.
When your are done you will feel different, and so will your
home, and best of all...it will be clean! You will be able to
breath easier, you will be healthier, and happier. All it takes
is your time, and it will be time well spent.
Watch the Video of my House Cleansing Ritual Below.
Here is a good list to follow:
1 Get rid of clutter.
2 Clean the space thoroughly.
3 If you have just moved to a new home that has a bad aura or a
negative feel, wash any wood surfaces and floors with mild witch
hazel diluted with water: 10 to 1 mix.
You are going to clean it anyway. :)
4 Finish one room, then move on to the next.
5 Sweep the doorways and steps of your front and back entrances.
6 Put one of the following into the soapy water you use to mop
your floors. I personally use disinfecting lemon scented wipes.
If you have carpets, consider making a small mixture and sprinkling
or spraying it on the floors after vacuuming. Just
a few drops of the essential oils will suffice:
Salt (purifying and grounding)
Sage essential oil (purifying)
Lemon essential oil (gives energy and a clean smell)
Patchouli (brings prosperity)
Pine (brings prosperity and love)
Seal your home against
negative energies by doing
one or more
of the following:
1 Using a wand, sketch a pentacle in the invoking direction at
each of your home's entrances. Don't forget the door to the
basement or garage!
2 Sprinkle salt water around the outside walls of your home.
3 Place a penny (right side up) in each of the outside corners
of your home.
4 Place a protective symbol--such as a mirror, a household god,
or a broom at or near your front and back doors. It's best to
use the symbol most closely aligned with your own ethnic heritage.
One that makes you feel safe.
Envision the space within you and around you filled with light, a
protective, healing and positive light. Think of the light as a
shield against dark forces and negative energy.
Karma means action, work or deed, it also refers to the principle of causality where intent and actions of an individual influence the future of that individual. Good intent and good deed contribute to good karma and future happiness, while bad intent and bad deed contribute to bad karma and future suffering. Karma is closely associated with the idea of rebirth in some schools of Asian religions. In these schools, karma in the present affects one's future in the current life, as well as the nature and quality of future lives... Think about that for awhile...

The 12 Karmic Principles
Learn a little about Feng Shui Here:
What is Feng Shui?
Do you sometimes think you are cursed?
Are there times when you are sure that things are
always going wrong for you?
Times when everyone else seems to have a
much easier time of everything than you do?
Do you blame others?
Those are the times in your life when you need to
reflect upon your own karma.
Rarely do people ever think of that. Maybe it's time.
There are things you can do to change your life and
make it better. There is nothing wrong with being
truly happy, and doing what is needed to get to that
Most people know what it takes to get there, they
just allow themselves to get distracted by things that
they have been told will make them happy. Weather
that be drugs, alcohol, or the accumulation of things,
but they are still unhappy, and even more so. Those
things didn't work, and they never will. Evil, weather
it be believed in as the Devil, or just something that
"is" does exist, and it is very easy to spot if you allow
yourself to do so.
Looking in the mirror is the place you want to start,
but there are many things to do after that.
First though you must take responsibility for your life,
and what happens in it, as well as who is in it. You
can't change the behavior of others, but you can
decide who to let in to your life, and if they are not
those who would bring positive vibrations, it's just as
well to let them go. That is if you wish to be on the
road to happiness.
Another subject to look in to is Feng Shui.
Feng Shui is a Chinese philosophical system of
harmonizing everyone with the surrounding environment.
Good feng shui for one room will be based on the
same energy foundation as good feng shui for the
Clean, clutter free, good quality air and good quality light
are the minimum good feng shui basics for any living
space. Having a clear organization system is a must for
good fengshui in your living room, especially if you have
children. It also makes your pets much happier. Even
they don't wish to live in an unclean, cluttered environment.
It's best to start with a whole house cleaning. When doing
this I also like to burn a candle to chase away the negative
that may inhabit the space. Try it, I promise you will feel
much better, and it didn't cost you anything.
