Easy ways to energetically cleanse your space
What do you do when you feel dirty? You take a bath or a shower to get clean, get your day out of your hair and refresh yourself, right?
What if your living and working spaces also need a good cleansing regularly?
These spaces are also filled with old energies, not just from you, but from all the people around you - whether they live with you, come to visit for a few days, or just drop into your office for a few minutes.
These energies can build up and if you don't clear them regularly they can leave you feeling unmotivated, stuck or uninspired in your own space. You may find that you have trouble sleeping - especially if you're travelling and the space you're using has been used many times by many different people.
Or you may know someone who is deliberately sending you bad vibes - cleansing and protecting your space will help block anything that is not love and light from entering.
Everything you do, say or think creates energy, and even if you live alone it's important to clear your space of unwanted old energies on a regular basis. Fortunately, there are many, easy ways you can keep your spaces clean and free of unwanted or old energies and improve your productivity, sleep patterns and general wellbeing.
Set your intention
The most important part of your clearing process is to set your intention, otherwise you're just waving your hands around for no reason and the energy coming through you, your smudge stick, bells or whatever you're using won't know what to do.
You need to set the intention that your space is to be cleared and choose what to do with the energies that you are releasing - if you do not, the energies will stay around and your space will remain uncleansed.
This means declaring that your space is now cleared of any old, stagnant or negative energies, they fall to the ground and are returned to Mother Gaia for her reuse and recycling. Choose whatever words resonate with you and best convey what you want to do.
Easy Ways to Cleanse Your Space:
Use a smudge stick
Smudge sticks have been used for centuries in indigenous traditions for cleansing and healing. Light your smudge stick and move through your space, drawing 8s as you go.
Recite your affirmation as you move into each new room and make sure you reach all the corners! You can also smudge yourself afterwards to cleanse your aura.
Open the windows
Allowing fresh air to flow through your space is an easy and effective way to clear old energies. Recite your affirmation as you open the windows and leave them open for at least an hour - yes, even in winter, for as long as you can stand it!
Ring a bell
Bells have been used for spiritual cleansing in Buddhist traditions throughout the ages. The vibrational nature of bells makes them very powerful tools. You can use Tibetan tingsha bells or a traditional brass hand bell of any size, whichever you prefer.
Move around your room ringing the bell as you recite your affirmation, making sure you reach all the corners! When you're finished, ring the bells over your body to clear your aura.
Clap your hands
One of the simplest ways to cleanse your space is to clap your hands. You can't use the excuse of not having smudge sticks or bells - we all have hands! Clapping your hands will also energise your vital organs and encourage physical cleansing and healing.
As with the bells, move around your room while saying your affirmation, making sure you reach all the corners! When you're finished, clap your hands around your body to cleanse your aura.
Ask your Angels
You can ask your Guardian Angels to cleanse you and your space. Sit comfortably and close your eyes. Take three deep breaths to centre yourself and bring your focus to your heart centre. Visualise roots growing from your feet down into the earth below to keep you grounded.
Ask your angels to pour their Divine golden white light into you and all around you. Visualise this light spreading throughout your space leaving it clean, clear and filled with light. When you're ready, slowly become aware of your body, take a deep breath and open your eyes. Give thanks to your angels for their love, support and protection.
Invoke Archangel Michael
You can call upon Archangel Michael any time you feel the need for protection. Close your eyes and ask Archangel Michael to place his Divine Cobalt Blue Cloak of Protection around you, your loved ones and your space. You may choose to inhale the cloak from head to toe and visualise it zipping around your space. Know that it is done. I do this every morning before I leave the house, it's a great way to protect your energy throughout the day.
You can use clear quartz or selenite to cleanse your space and any black crystal such as tourmaline or obsidian for protection. Cleans your crystals in sunlight for 10 minutes and then hold them in your hands. Notice how they feel, how they make you feel.
When you're ready, ask your crystals to cleanse or protect your space as needed. Follow your intuition when placing them in your home or office - they'll let you know where they will be most effective.
If you're attuned to Reiki or another form of energy, you can draw your symbols on the walls and in the corners of your space, or just allow the energy to flow where it needs to.
