Easy Way To Cleanse Your House


An Easy Way To Cleanse Your House With Sage That Keeps The Ghosts Away

Instead of going to a shaman which costs a lot of money, you can easily cleanse your house and rid your abode of negative energy and unwanted entities with an ancient technique. It's much more affordable and very effective! I'll show you how it's done in this instructional article.

Think of this as a feng shui ritual for clearing your home of bad energy. It's vital that you do this, especially if you feel uneasy, you have trouble sleeping, or if you feel a negative presence in your house. There are many different plant materials you can use for smudging. I highly recommend using white sage. It's relatively easy to get on platforms such as Shopee, Amazon and AliExpress. White sage is probably the most common and popular herb for smudging. It is associated with purity and has a strong and heavy presence. It's definitely useful for when you need a major space cleansing.

As the smoke ascends, our wishes and intentions rise and mingle into the universe, connecting heaven, earth, and humanity. Smoke offerings are prominent in Buddhism, Indigenous practices in the U.S., and many other spiritual religions. The smoke ceremony creates transformation and blesses a space and its inhabitants.

Before you start, take time to gather your materials. Slow down and do not rush through this first step. Keep the ritual materials sacred by using them only for space clearing. You can store any other materials on your shrine or altar.

I recommend having a candle nearby so you can easily relight your smudge stick. Please avoid using your kitchen stove or a lighter to burn your smudge stick. This ritual should be as organic as you can make it. Think traditional! It's also useful to have a fireproof bowl or plate to catch any ashes or embers. I use an abalone shell. It's not only gorgeous, it brings a water element to my ritual. You could also get a bowl made of clay from a prayer shop. These bowls are inexpensive and should only cost a few dollars.

A bowl of sand will come in handy too. It is used to extinguish the smudge stick safely. Did I mention a single smudge stick can last for months? Before you begin the smudging ceremony, please allow enough space and time. If possible, meditate for at least five minutes to calm your mind and heart. If you don't know how to meditate, simply close your eyes and focus on your breathing. Take deep breaths and control your exhale. It really does wonders for your mind and body. You can even use a Tibetan singing bowl to start your ritual.

Before you start, take a few moments to consider your wishes for your home and family. When you clear your house, there’s a vacuum that’s created. You want to welcome your intentions into the newly cleared and open space. You can say the following statement aloud "I am cleansing my house of all negative energy and negative spirits". You must feel and believe whatever you say and you must have the right intention.


Start at the front door of the home and light your smudge stick. Then, proceed to move around the home, moving your hand in an anticlockwise direction. Imagine drawing an invisible circle. Move mindfully and with care, walking clockwise around the entire perimeter of each room of your house. Be sure to allow the smoke to drift into even the hidden spaces, like inside closets, basements and dark corners. If there are stairs, just go up or down when you encounter them. Then keep moving clockwise until you meet the stairs again. Then continue to go down or up the stairs and resume cleansing the main floor.

Moving around a space like this is called “circumambulation”. It’s a practice that’s been done for centuries in ancient cultures to make a space more sacred. And, if it feels comfortable for you, it’s helpful to chant a mantra or a prayer that you’re connected to. I use the Tibetan Buddhist mantra “Om mani padme hum”, the mantra of compassion. This is a way to fill the space with more cleansing vibrations. If you are a Roman Catholic, you could play the Prayer to Saint Michael on Spotify. Speaking of which, Spotify has lots of tracks from almost any religion you can think of.


When you arrive back at the front door, chant your final mantra or prayer. Visualize that the entire home is filled with bright white sunlight. Then speak your intention one last time to close the smudging ceremony. Smudging rituals are a beautiful technique to clear a space. This can be done annually or more often. I do it once a month. It’s especially powerful to perform a space clearing when you first move into a home, or on the first day of the lunar new year.
