Out with the old, in with the new – How to do a House Cleansing
written by Renee Avard

One of our basic needs as human beings on this journey can lead to amazing revelations, including Safety and Positivity around you, is the ability to take charge of the energy that you reside in. At some points you may feel sluggish, tired, irritable etc, and if you are feeling this way it is the PERFECT time to Cleanse the energy of your house.

I am going to walk you through a House Cleansing.

What you will need is:

smudge stick black tourmalineA Smudge Stick

Four Black Tourmaline

Selenite  (any size is fine) — Mine is a square and super thick and it just shimmers – It’s very white (never mix this with water) — very powerful stone!

And a smudge bowl.

A cleansing can be done at any point even if you just had one done. The most professional of people understand this collective journey we are on. Cleansing & Clearing. Replacing the old energy with new.

It is very important to be clear on what energy you want to bring in (peace, joy, happiness, abundance, love, health, laughter etc,). Also, if you want to clear just one room (office/bedroom/meditation/healing room etc), or the whole house, you will be doing the following:

  • Light your Smudge Stick (Please keep water close by for safety precautions). 
  • Take your black Tourmaline as well as your Smudge bowl with the smoldering Smudge Stick in it and go to the Northern most corner of your space or home. 
  • Begin by wafting the smoke in an upwards motion into each of the four corners of the room. Work from top to bottom in each corner and go in a clockwise motion. 
  • Speak your intentions for the ceremony out loud while cleansing each corner. You may say anything you feel will fit the ceremony best for your situation. 
  • You could simply ask for the negative energy to exit and welcome the positive energy or you may wish to say a prayer as you smudge. Some people even smudge silently. This part is your choice. 
  • While the ritual is going on, be sure to place one Black Tourmaline stone in the North, South, East, and West corners of your entire space (house or office) as you get to each of these rooms. Most likely the front left and right rooms and the back left and right rooms in your space. Repeat these steps in each room and hallway until you have reached the room with the open window. 
  • Now place the Selenite in the room of your choice. Notice the feel of the room, any scents or visions – these things can come up after a good cleansing.  Choose a room that you wish to fill with the most positive energy such as a home office or bedroom.

As time goes on, if you feel a certain room needs cleansing again but do not feel the need to do the entire space, you can just cleanse your Selenite (with your Smudge stick or using Full Moon Energy) and place it in that specific room. Repeat this ceremony as often as you like to keep your space or home flowing with the pure, clean feeling of positive energy! 2014, here we come!
