Physically cleaning your home and space is important. Lots of people regularly clean their homes. But not a lot of people clean their homes energetically. Just like physical items can dusty up and clutter up our homes, making the environment unpleasant. So too can energetic dust and clutter. In this post I’ll share with you why it’s important to energetically cleanse and bless your home, some ways to go about it and how to tell when your home may need a cleansing.
Why should you cleanse and bless your home?
Like I mentioned above, our homes can get cluttered and gross from energy as well as physical items. People, animals and objects are constantly emitting energy. That energy then seeps into our homes and living spaces. After awhile, it can start to feel pretty cluttered and stuffy with all of that stagnant energy sitting around. Especially if there’s been an increase in tension, sadness or anger in your home. That energy is quite heavy and can make your living space feel unpleasant.
Cleansing your home clears out that stagnant energy while blessing your home helps to prevent unwanted energies from entering and remaining in your home.
Have you ever walked into a room after someone has been arguing or really upset and just felt the tension? Likewise, have you ever walked into a room where people are happy and having fun and the atmosphere felt light and airy? That’s a good example of feeling the energy in a space.
How can you tell when it’s time to cleanse your home?
Ideally, you want to energetically cleanse your home on a regular basis. However, there are some times and signs to let you know it may be time to give your space a good cleansing. Some of these include:
- Moving into a new home
- After any big arguments or sadness
- After any illnesses in the home
- After having lots of guests over
- If the residents seem more tense and irritable than normal
- If the residents are having nightmares
- If the overall vibe of your home just feels off or not quite right
- When you bring antiques or previously owned items into the home
What can you do to cleanse and bless your home?
You can either cleanse and bless your home yourself or you can hire a professional (priest, spiritual guide, healer, etc) to do it for you. Some people prefer to do regular cleansing on their own and hire a professional for bigger jobs.
Some tools you can use to cleanse and bless your home:
- Essential oils
- Palo Santo
