Balance Your Space With Spiritual Cleansing
Cleansing is a traditional practice that has been used for hundreds of years in different religious and spiritual traditions. It generally involves the use of energy, herbs, and other tools to remove negativity from your home and rebalance the energy in your environment. The spiritual cleansing process can help clear the space of negative spirits or entities, and it can promote a peaceful atmosphere in your home.
The spiritual cleansing process has many benefits that can help you create a more positive living environment. After all, you’re making your space energetically safe and more inviting to both you and any guests who may come into your home. When you remove negative energies from your residence, you may experience:
- Increased mental clarity
- Improved personal relationships with those around you
- Better sleep quality
- An enhanced sense of wellbeing
- A calmer emotional state
- Increased prosperity and abundance
- An increased connection with yourself and the universal energy field.
The Basics of Spiritual Cleansing
While there are countless ways to cleanse an area, there are some tips that can be applied to most or all cleansing rituals.
For instance, creating a peaceful, sacred space is the first step in preparing your home for spiritual cleansing. Begin by removing any physical clutter or negative energy from the living and working spaces of your home. This will create a foundation for energy to flow freely through the space. You may wish to use sound-based healing tools such as singing bowls, bells, or rattles. You may also use crystals to help clear the space of any lingering negative energy.
Then start placing objects of intention and purpose into the cleared space. These items should reflect tranquility, balance, and beauty. Some examples include meditation cushions, candles, an essential oil diffuser, sage bunches, and lavender bundles — to name just a few ideas.
It is important to remember that your preparations and, later, your cleansing ceremony itself should be tailored to your needs and intentions. Ask yourself:
- What emotions do I want this place to bring me?
- What rituals will ground me personally?
- How do I want others to feel when they come into my space?
Asking yourself these questions will give you the information you need to carry out a successful spiritual cleansing ceremony!
A Cleansing Ritual To Help You Spring Forward
While everyone’s ritual needs are different, there are many standard cleansing methods that can be helpful to just about anyone! Here is one powerful cleansing ritual that you can use to clear your home of negativity and get you off to a wonderful start for spring.
This ritual uses salt water infused with rosemary sprigs. In many spiritual traditions, salt water is considered a blessed substance. Meanwhile, rosemary is thought to cleanse both your space and your aura, as well as promote wellbeing, abundance, and protection. If you want to add a bit of uplifting energy to the mix, put a few drops of lemongrass essential oil into the bottle.
After you have that mixture made, begin the ritual by taking a little bit of time to balance yourself. Once you feel more grounded, it’s time to set your intent and start moving through your home. You may find it helpful to start at the lower level of your house, open the windows, and then move your way upstairs. Spritz the salt water spray liberally in each room, and don’t forget the corners!
As you do this, you can remain quiet and simply focus on your desire for peace, prosperity, health, and happiness in this space. Alternatively, though, you may actually feel an urge to speak your desires aloud. If you have someone who’s willing to help you, ask them to ring a small bell or chime while you handle the spritzing. Sound can help you push away negative energies, and it will allow you to assert your will over your environment.
When you complete each room, you may find it beneficial to place a piece of hematite or nuummite in the space for an added boost. Go through your house or apartment systematically until you’ve cleansed your entire abode. After that, you’re nearly done.
Concluding Your Cleansing Ritual
Once you have completed any spiritual cleansing, it’s important to take some steps to properly close the ritual.
- Meditate: Take a few minutes to quietly reflect on what you’ve experienced and release any negative energy that may be lingering. Keeping your vibrations high can help you update your home and keep it spiritually clean.
- Ground Yourself: As with other rituals, grounding is important. It will bring you back down to Earth and help you get rid of any excess energy that may remain. Try taking a few deep breaths, and imagine that you are surrounded by a globe of white light. Alternatively, try connecting with nature by going outside and spending some time in the sun or moonlight.
- Visualize Protection: After cleansing, it’s beneficial for your home — and for you — to take steps to protect it from any further energy disruption. Visualize a protective barrier around each room of your home filled with golden healing light, then imagine that protection extending outwards beyond the walls of your house. Blessing each room with positive affirmations will also help set your intentions for future visits and activities inside this space.
- Divinely Seal It Off: Offer gratitude for all the support you’ve received throughout this process by invoking the Divine’s blessings onto yourself, any others in the space, and the house itself (ancestral spirits included). Seal off each room or area, holding your intention that no entry is allowed without energetic permission/invitation from you or anyone else who lives in this space.
Create a Welcoming Spiritual Space
Spiritual cleansing is a simple but powerful process that can help you balance and harmonize the energy of your environment. By removing stagnant and negative energies, promoting healthy habits, and encouraging the presence of good-natured spirits, you can create a safe and peaceful atmosphere.
Of course, it’s important to note that cleansing should not be the only means of protection or remedy you use. As with all challenges in life, solving any troubles that you encounter may require multiple steps — though a spiritual cleansing may be one of them. If you’re struggling to keep the energy at home positive, seek support from friends or family, meditate regularly, practice self-care techniques, and reach out to spiritual leaders such as a trusted psychic. When you work to create peace and space both within yourself and in your environment, you can wash away the negative energy before it affects your life.
