Over the years a home will build up negative energy. This is due to arguments, negative thoughts, suicides or any other "bad" occurrences that may have happened on the property. Things may have happened that you're not aware of. It's always a good idea to cleanse your home whether it be a place you've lived in for years or somewhere you've just moved into.
Before you begin:
Cover all mirrors and reflective surfaces, remove pets,
Cleanse yourself. Light some sage in a Abalone shell, ashtray or you can use a sage stick. Make sure to put out the flame when you're sure it's lit. (You may want to have something to catch the ash from the sage stick) When it begins to smoke, encircle yourself in the smoke beginning at your head all the way down to your feet. This is called "smudging."
As your doing this say, "Smoke of sage encircle me, rid me of negativity."
Start at the farthest room in the back of the house. If you have more than one story house you want to start upstairs. Moving in a counter-clockwise motion walk around each room with the sage. Make sure to hit each corner and window. As you're cleansing each room say, "I see only pure reflected light, I am ridding this home of all bad luck and negative energy. O Blessed Be" Or any prayer you wish.
Remember God and your spirit guides understand what you are trying to do, so THERE IS NO WRONG WAY to do it. You may want to include some of your favorite readings, or do this with a loved one. Basically that's it, be well.
This is a simple prayer that we use as we cleanse homes.
