We’ve all been there. The house just doesn’t feel right. We’re sluggish when we shouldn’t be. The air feels oppressive, and you and your family are fighting like cats and dogs for no reason. It could just be that you aren’t feeling well and that these feelings will pass.
HOWEVER, sometimes those negative feelings build up and start to seep into the walls. If it goes on too long, you could be in real trouble. It’s best to clear the negativity away as quickly and often as possible.. I recommend a good cleans once a month. If you’re paranormal investigator who runs into astral nasties on a regular basis, you should make that every couple of weeks.
I’ve used all the techniques below and I promise they are 100% effective for clearing your space quickly and effectively.
Method #1: Sage
There’s a reason this is one of the first things mediums and investigators alike recommend when you’ve got a big space you want to cleanse. Sage and other similar herbs have been used by cultures all over the world for purification and healing for thousands of years. Sage, specifically, is used because not only does it purify, but it also promotes balance in your environment and body. The use of sage is easy, but the key is to focus on your intent before lighting the sage bundle. Focus on the negative energy moving out of your home. Focus on dispelling anything that could harm you. Then simply light the sage and carry it from room to room. You can say a prayer during this time, focus on white light, whatever it is you do to promote balance and light and positive energy. I’ve used a white feather or fan to make sure the smoke enters each of the four corners of the room. You don’t want to miss anything. If you have an attic or basement, make sure you cleanse those areas, as well.
Method #2: Salt
Salt is another ancient and proven way to dispel negativity from your home. The method I’m going to recommend is a little different, but it’s one of the best I’ve used. What you need is some good rock salt and a frying pan. Pour a cup or two of rock salt into the frying pan and set it on the stove. Turn the heat on low to medium. After a few minutes, the rock salt will heat and then begin to start popping. As the salt cracks and pops, the salt will work its magic, cleansing the very air in your home from any negative build up.
Method #3: Beeswax Candles
Oh man, do I love real beeswax candles. Not only are they slow burners, but they are also great for people who suffer from allergies. Burning a beeswax candle a few minutes everyday naturally produces negative ions that will strip the air of allergens and other toxins. The added benefit of this, is that it also burns away negative energy, leaving your environment cleaner and the air will feel lighter. Put one candle in each room in your home and light them all to burn at the same time to cleanse the entire area. The candles will last for an extremely long time and there’s virtually no dripping from these beauties.
Method #4: Florida Water
Florida water is a great cleaner to use around the home. You can use it to clean surfaces or just spray it into the corners and floors to disperse negative energy. You can buy Florida water ready made on Amazon, or you can make your own. There are a host of recipes out there. Here’s a simple one that works extremely well!
16oz distilled water
2oz alcohol (think high proof vodka)
6 drops bergamot essential oil
6 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops clove essential oil
Mix all ingredients together. You can put it in a spray bottle or mix with wash water.
Method #5: Take a bath
This is a bonus and while it sounds like a joke at first, it’s really very important! You’ve cleansed your home of the negativity energy but what about the stuff that’s clinging to you? So get in the bathroom, strip down, light a few candles, put on some good music and run a hot bath. Mix in a cup of salt, 6 drop of lavender oil and a couple drops of patchouli oil. Jump in and let your trouble soak away into the water. The salt and oils will draw the negative out and you can send them right down the drain when you’re done.
These are only a few methods for cleansing and clearing your space. Experiment and see what works best for you. You and your home will be feeling better in no time!
