Cleansing and Protecting Your Magickal Home
Merry Meet :)))))) How many of you cleanse and protect your home?
We spend a lot of time talking about how to take care of ourselves, but making sure that your home is cleansed properly and protected is extremely important as well.
It's always best to do this after cleaning your house if you can. However, I know time can be tough, and we all don't always get the time to clean the entire house in one go so if you can't don't worry too much, just straighten a bit first. :))) However you do want to keep in mind that the cleaner your home is the easier it will be to deal with the energy in your home. For those of you who are empaths you may find it's extremely important, I know I do. :)))
The first thing to do is go through the house with white sage or dragon's blood. I am partial to using white sage and lavender bundles, but you may want to use incense as well. It's a personal preference. If you cannot get either, or you have someone in the home who is sensitive you can work with a white candle. Walk through the house room by room and waft the smoke all around the room. Be sure to take extra care around doors, windows, and in corners. As you go through state your intention that all negative energy must be gone, only energy for your highest good may remain.
You can sprinkle a light barrier of sea salt around the perimeter of your property, around your home, and in front of any doors. If you wish you can sprinkle a bit around rooms as well, thought it is not necessary. This will add extra protection for your home.
Under each mattress tuck a small piece of smoky quartz and rose quartz, this will help guard your dreams at night and ensure a good nights sleep.
Plants like mint, rosemary, and lavender are excellent for protection so use them generously wherever you can.
Keep those protection scents burning. Light incense or oils in your home that are for protection, such as lavender, cinnamon, cedar, jasmine, or sandalwood.
These are the most common steps that I take, and I find they do an amazing job to keep the energy balanced in the home. :)))))
Much Love and Many Blessings,
