Smudging Your Home To Clear Negative Energy

click here for a free psychic reading at PsychicAccess.comIt’s a good idea to cleanse the energy in your home once a week, in my opinion. I do this with smudging, going around the perimeters of my house asking the powers that be to bless and protect my home and those who dwell in it. It helps to keep negativity and toxic energy out.

Smudging is an ancient shamanic practice and a ceremony practiced by Indigenous peoples of the Americas, which involves the burning of sacred herbs and resins. The smoke is believed to neutralize negative energy – as it clears it takes the unwanted, toxic energy with it, releasing it into another realm where it can be regenerated into positive energy.

I have also attended Catholic church ceremonies several times in my lifetime. They always start with incense at the beginning of a service. I like to describe it as ‘cleaning the negativity and toxic cobwebs’ that have accumulated. Yes, homes collect all kinds of energy over time, just like dust on a lampshade. And it needs to be cleaned! Every home benefits from a frequent smudging.

I especially like to always smudge after any negative encounter that may have taken place in my space – literally anything negative, be it the presence of an actual person, a bad dream, or telephonic argument with a loved one, I like to clear out that energy, as it makes my home brighter and lighter. As a highly sensitive empath, I just love the feeling of fresh, peaceful energy in my home.

On smudging days, I first dust my home and clean it, always with the windows wide open. Then I smudge myself, before smudging my home. I cleanse my own aura from my feet up, then go back down in a swirling motion all around my entire body. I use both hands when doing this, to evenly move the smudging stick around me. I visualize my aura being cleansed completely.

I always have a bowl of sand ready to extinguish the incense at any time. I also have a candle lit in the main room, where I first light my smudge stick. I always start at the front door and smudge my home clockwise. Once I get to the front door, I open it and I visualize all the negative energy leaving my home.

I have certain prayers that I like to say, when I go around my home, but you can do whatever feels right to you. Visualize it being cleansed and say whatever feels right for you. Set a clear intention. Call upon any higher power that you believe in, asking for help to energetically cleanse yourself and your home.

Smudging is a very sensible spiritual practice. It protects you and your home. I also like to smudge before meditating – not to the extent of cleansing my entire home, but definitely the space I will be meditating in.

After every smudging, I always thank my ancestors and God for helping me to cleanse and bless my space, as this is a very sacred practice. It makes my entire home feel alive with positive energy, which in turn helps me to be more creative, connect more clearly with spirit, and receive meaningful messages from the Divine.

The less negativity the better. By doing just this one simple ritual once a week, helps me and my loved ones resonate and connect with a higher vibration that is very uplifting and energetically charged in a positive way. It always helps all of us have a much more peaceful life.
