Here's your cheat-sheet to keeping the energy in your home fresh, clean and free from negative or low vibrational energies.
Our home is our place to recuperate, relax and get away from the world. Often the home can become a place where we shed all of the low vibrational energy that we have picked up from others throughout the day. Think of it as walking outside in the mud all day and then walking through your home with muddy shoes. If you don't clean your home regularly then it's going to get dirty from all of the outside mess. The same goes for the energy within a house.
There are many ways to keep your home free from negative and low vibrational energies and to keep it clean and clear. Here are my top recommendations for doing so. They are effective yet very easy to do as well.
Using a smudge stick, incense or even burning herbs can help to clear the energy in a home. What you must ensure is that all windows and doors are open while doing so, so that the negative energy can be carried outside by the smoke.
Smudge wands are particularly effective since they are usually made up mostly of white sage which has an extremely cleansing effect on the energy within a space. Other herbs can also be as effective, and it can be a case of trial and error to find the right smudging or incense blend for you.
Smudging is best done once a month or whenever you feel that the energy of your home has dropped slightly. Simply start at your front door and work your way around your home swirling the smoke from the smudge wand up into the corners of the rooms and even into cupboards and other small areas if you feel that they need cleansing too.
Make sure that you turn off smoke alarms before smudging and that you turn them back on after your smudging ritual is complete. Extinguish smudge wands properly after use and also use a smudging dish to catch any loose embers will also help avoid issues.
My favourite smudge wand for cleansing my home is the Healing Smudge wand as it shifts any difficult energy and replaces it with a gentle vibration.
Room Energy Sprays
Energy sprays are an extremely easy way to quickly uplift the energy in the home. Spritzing each room a couple of times with one of these sprays will 'top up' the positive energy in your home and leave the energy refreshed and revitalised. You can even use them on yourself.
Keeping negative energy at bay, to begin with, is ideal. The less that comes into the home, the less energy cleansing you'll need to do! Any black or dark crystals will help with 'vacuuming up' any lower vibrational energies and will help to neutralise these energies. They'll also be constantly cleansing the energy.
I find that the best crystals for keeping the energy in your home clean and clear are Black Tourmaline and Black Obsidian. Having a larger piece of either of these next to or near the front door will help to cleanse your energy field as you step into your home too (or that of any visitors!).
Any crystals that you do use for house cleansing should be placed outside or near a window on a full moon evening so that the light of the full moon can cleanse and recharge them.
Love and light xoxo
