Hello, I just have a question about cleansing a house or myself. I was wondering if you have ever used a smudge stick or something like that or if you ever have done anything of the sorts at all, or if you recommend it. I know white sage is supposed to get rid of harmful spirits or something like that and it is or was used a lot in Native American rituals but I was wondering if you have ever used it or anything else to cleanse your house or yourself.
I personally have not used a smudge stick mainly because my parents are crazy and they won’t even let me use incense unless i sneak it into my room lol. Can’t wait for our new place….However I wish i could find my previous post on House cleansing. I’ll try to summarize.
The best thing you can do for house cleansing or even Aura cleansing, is lots of positive affirmations and visualizations. Protection chants or spells such as “No negative energies will get inside these walls” and imagine gold light pierces through the walls creating a bubble of protection. You can use sage or a smudge stick if you wish, the trick is it’s ALL about your intention behind the energy. You really have to feel and believe it, the power lives within the belief as the belief is what powers the energy into being and manifests into the real world. The same could be said for any situation really but it’s all about the power of the belief of the energy.
You can also try opening up the house, letting lots of sunlight within, bringing Earth into your home with Plants or flowers, Embodying the elements into your home, the sacred elements create a barrier of protection this is why the pentagram is a powerful protection symbol. It’s all elements combined with man. There are seriously all sorts of things you can do to aid in cleansing a house or your personal aura.
For your own aura, you can do a cleansing bath with sea salts and your favorite soaps, essential oils and candles, you can do a smudging around yourself, you can reiki yourself, you can use crystals such as black kyanite and other negative banishing stones, you can simply do energy techniques by waving your hands around your aura to help create a protection barrier. You can image your body like a castle and the moat is a protection or a wall of fire around you. There are so many ways, find what works best for you 🙂
Hope this helps!
