Too often though we neglect to cleanse the energy in our homes and work places…the places where we spend the most time. Negative energy can literally make you ill, especially if you are exposed to it on a regular basis. Energetically, everything that happens in your home – thoughts, actions and emotions – is held there like dust, imprinted on the walls, floors, and furniture. Arguments, upsets, illness, traumas and other unsettling energies can linger and disturb the harmonious balance of your home.
When the Chi energy in our home or workplace isn’t flowing properly, and has become stagnant, it can cause problems such as depression, arguments, illness, lack of motivation, tension, frustration, even financial loss. It is as important to cleanse the energy in your home, as it is to cleanse the energy in your body. If the energy in your home feels, heavy, stale, chaotic, even threatening, a good cleansing will help to lighten it up.
For a very powerful house cleaning you can use Frankincense and Myrrh. Frankincense and myrrh are often associated with love and faith. They are said to affect the crown chakra, and as such help with meditation and with bringing the body and mind to a more receptive state. The burning of incense made of frankincense and myrrh is said to assist in the development of the inner light and thereby is helpful in promoting spiritual focus and creativity.
Along with Frankincense and Myrrh, purchase charcoal. The charcoal has a shallow indentation to hold the Frankincense and Myrrh. Place the Frankincense and Myrrh in the indentation, light it and wait for the smoke to billow softly. In a state of sacred intention, walk from room to room carrying a fireproof plate with the burning items on it. As the smoke comes up and out of its container, gently push it towards all parts of the rooms. Allow the smoke to cleanse and balance each room. This will balance and cleanse your personal energy field as well. While walking from room to room, I repeat the following affirmation:
Our home is a sacred space. Only that which is beneficial to us is welcome here. Anything that is not beneficial, or may be harmful to us, be it of a physical, spiritual or energetic origin, is automatically rejected, and will not enter our home. Our home is filled and protected by the love and light of the universe.
You can turn this home cleansing into a Home Blessing Ceremony by inviting family and friends to participate. Share the love and blessings over dinner and conversation. And remember, you can perform this ‘ceremony’ as often as you like.
Happy House Blessing,
