Cleansing your home regularly, as with your body's own energy field, is paramount, to clear stored negative energy blockages holding you back, remove infections, and prepare for your new adventures. We, inadvertently, pick up negative energies when we are out and about, and those that visit our homes can 'deposit' their brokenness, their negative attitudes and their unhealed egoic crap within our homes. Negative energy then sticks to everything and so cleansing is needed to restore balance to our lives. De-cluttering is also very, very important, the shelves, cupboards, draws, basements, everywhere, that you have been putting off, as it holds toxic negative energies to. Our goal is to remove any stored stagnant energies and negative entities, throw out, or where possible recycle, any clutter, to allow ourselves to thrive no matter what is going on around us, and to maintain optimum health. Sometimes we manifest the chaos to avoid working on healing unhealed parts of ourselves, putting off your own healing only makes the process longer, and often more painful.
The tradition of cleansing has been around for centuries and is an ancient spiritual ritual, originating from the Native Americans. Space clearing is a form of modern-day alchemy and ceremonies are performed for healing and to clear the build up of emotional and spiritual negativity. Buildings collect and accumulate energy blockages, as with the human body, and so regular cleansing is important to maintain the health and wellbeing of all those within the household.
I can cannot express strongly enough how much the environment you choose to live in affects your health, wellbeing and your relationships with those within your home. If you choose to live in cluttered chaos, then it will inevitably ensue in your life. Every pile of clutter creates negativity, not least from the dust it generates. Please remember everything is a choice and we 'call in' that which we most need to learn from, each and every day.
You can smudge your home yourself, and the white sage has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties, boosting mental clarity and improving the air quality. Sage means salvia in Latin, ‘healthy’ or ‘to heal’, and burning it regularly increases your memory, awareness, wisdom and mood. It cleanses and purifies the body, mind and spirit, along with our environment and it is possible to feel a change in the air immediately after use. Scientific studies have shown that medicinal smoke is a powerful antiseptic that decreases the level of harmful bacteria by 94 percent! It repels airborne pathogens, that cause viruses and disease too. Just ensure you purchase from a reputable source and that it is premium white sage.
The sage smoke absorbs emotional issues and cleanses them from the energy field of a person and space/environment. The electromagnetic field (aura) around our body, as well as the energy around us, becomes blocked with harmful positive ions that can make us feel fatigued, sluggish and burnt out. The sage neutralises the positive charge and releases large amounts of negative ions into the atmosphere allowing us to feel lighter and freer. The term 'cut the tension with a knife' during an argument or when someone is in a terrible mood is so true. It is a build up of positive ions and causes the energy around us to be stagnant and stale - burning sage reverses this, purifying and cleansing the air/atmosphere. Sage, Frankincense and Palo Santo can all be used, lifting your mood, providing mental clarity and a level of relaxation. It is becoming more and more popular as people look outside of the ‘norm’ and stop relying on, often addictive, pharmaceutical drugs that frequently only ‘put a plaster’ on the problem rather than looking at the root causes.
When to House Cleanse:
If you are looking to start a fresh, such as a new project or adventure
Moving into a new space, and after (+ before) any renovation work to release any trapped energies left by builders and trades people within the property, and to clear any awakened entities
After personal or professional difficulties - such as relationship breakdowns or parent/child issues
After a series of illness
If anyone in the house is having problems sleeping
When the occupants in the house change
Basically, whenever you feel stuck and want to improve the quality of life, your health and your wellbeing and that of those close to you
When viewing a new home, or walking into your current home or office, people often say ‘it just does not feel right’. This is because the property has energy blockages from previous experiences of the inhabitants brought on by life’s challenges, issues such as divorce, illness or loss and even when outside the home, they can bring negativity into the environment. Every time we meet another person we exchange energies, if they are angry, we pick this up and it can then be dispensed into the home.
The best recommendation is to try it and see the difference it makes to your home, your world and the people who live with you. One example is that I have cleansed houses that have been stuck on the property market for months, then they sell super-fast. Without realising, we all pick up energy, others can leave their negativity in your property, and some can remain stored within our bodies, preventing people from moving forwards and succeeding with their goals and dreams. Ideally a minimum of x 2 major cleanses a year is highly advised, don't wait until things are very troublesome and feeling out of control, plan ahead!
Ways To Improve The Energies Yourself:
Declutter - everything, empty that cupboard, donate those unworn clothes, shred that paperwork, tidy up
Open the windows, and curtains, within your home at least one a day, to cleanse the air and aid the health of all the occupants (even in cold weather)
Place strong Crystals at poignant points within the home - such as Black Tourmaline by the front door, to 'collect' the negativity of others before they enter. Any protection stones that can help to ward off the electromagnetic shite emitted from electric items
Don't place televisions within your bedroom - the EMF's are very damaging. If they must be there, then cover them with a sheet/throw overnight
Ensure there is not a directly mirror facing your bed - super damaging for your long term health
Make your bed, sounds simple but the positive effects on your day are huge
Cleansing provides a sense of calmness and positivity, like meditation does for the mind, enhancing concentration and boosting creativity. The more relaxed and balanced we can be, then the healthier our bodies are long term. Smudging actively kills bacteria in the air, along with bad energies, so it can be good for people who are affected by poor air quality, particularly those suffering from respiratory and lung problems, headaches, asthma and the common cold and cough.
The smoke attaches to the negative energy in the air, often trapped in corners and amongst clutter, and dissipates it, transmuting the energy to positive. It does not leave a strong smell and it is extremely rare for the smoke to set off fire alarms, as it is very gentle. This only ever happened once, in a very cluttered property belonging to a hoarder, who brought designer shoes and clothes, stacked them floor to ceiling in every room, rather than deal with deep seated emotional issues. It is a good idea to open windows during, and just after the cleanse, to further release negative energies.
My personal method involves sound healing, burning sage and applying Reiki energy to each room. Also, chanting mantras and the use of prayers where necessary, to further aid the removal of stagnant energy from the space. I intuitively build a Crystal Grid, to set up on arrival, to enhance the cleansing and a lot more details can be found here: House Cleansing Services. Remote clearing is also possible, as with distance healing, a video of the property can help to identify any physical issues, more details here: Remote House Cleansing. The cost of my House Cleansing Service depends on the size of your space / the number of rooms and the travel time involved, to get a quote: email firstname.lastname@example.org with the number of rooms (including toilets + hallways) and your postcode (for travel time) and I can send you the details.
Regular cleansing, of our homes and our bodies, is vital for our health, wellbeing and mental clarity. Quantum Reiki is an extremely powerful and effective energy healing that ignites the immune system and our own ability to heal, restoring emotional, physical and mental balance to the body, mind and soul. When used on your home it has the same effect, provided there is not extreme clutter within the space. Blockages and toxins accumulate overtime, within us and our homes, due to the complexities of life and negative 'learned' behaviour’s and thought patterns. Reiki works by subtly changing the flow of energy through and within the body, and within our homes. It is super powerful at bringing the body back into equilibrium, relieving stress, anxiety and depression; easing pain; aiding relaxation and personal growth; and strengthening overall health.
Remember how you have chosen to live in the past was your choice, today you can start again, change your thoughts, change your world. I love helping you to clear and cleanse both your spaces and yourself (with Reiki Treatments & my Courses). Let's get your home realigned and the energies reset for the amazing opportunities opening up for us in 2023.
