Negative or harmful energy seeps into our spaces all the time. Whatever the reason for it entering, regularly removing negative energy from your space can restore balance and harmony. If you are wondering how to remove negative energy from your home, try these simple cleansing rituals to ensure there is a free flow of positive energy through your home. Each of these mini rituals can be done individually, but are most powerful if used together in this specific order to cleanse and protect. Repeat these cleansing rituals if someone is sick, a lot of people have entered your home, you moved into a new home, or you just feel negative emotions or occurrences keep arising.
it begins with your mindset
Imagine a white light around you and the rest of your space. Pure white is thought to be the true solour of the soul.
BREAK OUT THE SAGE
Dried white sage has been used for thousands of years in “cleansing” rituals, particularly by the Native Americans.
Light candles and concentrate on positivity
Its best to carry out any cleansing candle rituas around the new moon, so if possible, start your candle/alteat ritual then for the most powerful effects.
Salt each corner and threshold of your home
Salt is another substance known for warding off evil spirits and cleansing spaces. Try sprinkling it in the corners of your home in order to prevent negativity from returning.
Buy Cleansing Crystals
Soak the crystals in salt water overnight in order to “clear” them. Then leave crystals out in dishes around your house.
Chant your Own Mantra
It adds another positive reinforcement to your words, similar to “amen” at the end of a prayer.
Shake out the house with pots and pans
Some people think of this as a New Year’s tradition: it supposedly scares away the ghosts of the previous year.
Set up a Positivity Altar
Collect a few things that represent positivity in your life and place them together on a small shelf or table.
Place a candle in ever corner of the house
Candle rituals are present in virtually every spiritual or religious tradition. Try buying tea lights and adding droplets of essential oils to create a personalized aroma.
Palo Santo Sticks
The most popular — and powerful — alternative to smudging is to use Palo Santo sticks to purify your home. Palo Santo, also called holy wood, is a medicinal tree that grows in South America. It is a powerful tree much respected by elders and shamans and used in many healing and blessing rituals.
The sticks used in the clearing ritual come from fallen trees and are wild harvested. If the tree is cut while living, the concentration of the essential oil is not nearly the same, so the healing Palo Santo sticks come only from trees that have undergone a natural life to death transformation.
The aroma of this wood is very pleasant and calming, and the actual clearing ritual is very easy.
