Receive the NEW by clearing out the OLD.
Clearing is healing, especially if we want to receive a New Year with more opportunities and open doors. So cleansing our spaces is important! as we are replacing old or stagnant energy with positive and new energy.
Clearing the energies at home brings peace, harmony, and connection into your home and life, connecting you with your home so that together you can achieve your goals. New energies support and nurture each person who lives and spends time at home.
How to perform a Cleansing.
In the following cleansing, I use palo santo. You can use sage if you wish.
Step 1: Open the windows to allow the energy to move freely.
Step 2: Wash your hands and face, and take off any jewelry. Also, remove your shoes as these will have absorbed their own negative energies.
Step 3: Wear or carry a Clear Quartz to protect yourself while working with energies.
Step 4: Start the cleansing process from the back of the house to the front. Light the palo santo and start walking from the back of each room to the front. Walk around the room covering as much of it as you can. Using a hand fan, waft the palo santo smoke into the corners of the room up to the ceiling. Make sure to go into every room as you move from the back of the house to the front. When you’ve reached the front, walk out the door and smudge palo santo around the door and frame. Open the door to let the energies move freely. Then, leave the palo santo outside to allow it to burn off.
Step 5: Sounds also clear up energies. Ring a bell, or use the Tibetan Bowl or Tibetan Cymbals to remove stagnant energy behind furniture, under the bed and hidden spaces.
Step 6: After smudging with palo santo, repeat the process burning Frankincense, White Copal or Sweet Grass. This helps to purify and create a protective mantle into the house.
