I’ve used sage and sweetgrass for 7+ years and it can be very effective in cleansing the home of negative energies and entities to replace with positive energy.
After using sage for so long, I knew it was not best for my allergies, and noticed it stained anything white over time into grey or darker colors. I looked for alternatives. I found one that was effective without losing any of the positive effects of the original method.
Whenever removing negative energy from the home replace it with positive so that the empty energetic space is not filled with something less than positive.
1. First, remove negative energy from the home with fire (using a tealight) and the following recommended essential oils dripped onto the tealight before lighting (you can experiment with different combos but this works):
- Frankinsence – protection and purification
- Orange oil – powerful love energy, peace, personal power and luck
- Lemongrass – mental clarity, breaking negative habits
- Rosemary – protection, mental clarity, stress, strength
- Sandalwood – protection
- Eucalyptus – purifying and healing
Open some windows in every room for the energy to leave. Say the following words while going around your home in a counter clockwise fashion:
“Archangel Michael and Gabriel, I ask that you remove and banish all negative energies and spirits from our home with the energy of Divine Light and Love. Bless our home with your pure white light of love and protection.”
Imagine negative energies, entities in corners, cabinets and rooms leaving the home through the open windows. Say while opening windows even when not using fire and water “negative energy leaves the home, positive energy enters.” I usually visualize this happening when opening the windows and doors for the fresh air to get in.
Replace the removed negative energy with positve energy using a small dish filled with water and the following essential oils:
- Lemon – purification, love
- Peppermint – waking energy, enhances vitality, mental stimulant
- Ylang ylang – brings peace, love
- Lavender – wisdom, love, abundance, sleep aid, cleansing, healing
- Frankinscence – luck, protection, purification
Say the following while walking around the home in a clockwise fashion. “Archangels Gabriel and Michael, Bless our home with your pure white light of love and protection.”
Be sure to check up on your feng shui as well, sometimes you can feel sluggish or “attacked” in the home if feng shui is not quite right. Use google maps to figure out your true N, E, S and W, as your home may not be facing directly North but Northwest for example. My feng shui article is here. You can also visualize God correcting for feng shui inauspicuous energies.
Repeat every two weeks if you are normally grounded and have a non-metaphysical job or don’t deal with spirituality often. If you are a psychic reader or energy healer you may want to do this more often, every 3 days or after a particularly negative reading/healing. This method uses all elements, air to move the energies in/out through the windows, water, fire and earth from the essential oils.
Other tips: 1. You can visualize cleansing your home if you are pressed for time. 2. I would also recommend visualizing or asking God to keep your neighbors’ energies, entities and energy fields out of the home for a period of time, like 24 hours, to a week. Visualize this happening with time passing until you hit 24 hours or a week for additional intention and faith energy. 3. Imagine God closing all portals not helping you in and around your property. Imagine them sealed and closed. 4. Visualize a forest in your home, grounding spiritual energy not serving you and that may be ungrounding you. I imagine trees covering the floor, a river connecting in each room and air moving out energy not serving me. Fires on the SW and South sides of the home and fire flies aiding in grounding in other areas (fire is an excellent grounder and spiritual cleanser). All of the 4 elements will help ground spiritual energy not yours and not serving you so you can feel more grounded, safe and have mental clarity. I usually pay attention to feng shui directional rules when setting up my forest.
