How to Properly Cleanse a Home or Property

Cleansings for home and properties

Cleansing Your Home or Property

What is a Home Cleansing?

Homes come in all shapes, colors, sizes, and spiritual alignments. Some homes are calm, soothing, and peaceful places. Other homes or properties can be possessed, negative, energy-sucking, or just down-right evil.  Whether the home is possessed, or a new family is moving in, a home cleansing is almost always a good idea.  Home cleansings are spells or rituals cast by a spiritualist, practitioner, or coven, which eliminate negativity and bad energy from a designated property.  The rituals can be complex or simple. They can involve many ingredients or no ingredients. They can be short, or they can be long.  In the end, the cleansing will only be as powerful as its components, and the first step is to determine what type of negative energy is present, if any.

“Can I Cleanse My House Myself?”

The first step in a home or property cleansing is determining if it is possible to do yourself (or if you even want to attempt to do it yourself). Besides the fact that there are varying levels of skill when it comes to cleansings, there are also numerous types of cleansings. If you have any reason to believe that there are demons, spirits, or any types of entities present within the home or property, it is always best to consult with a professional.  It is also usually encouraged to conduct the cleansing as a full coven.  And while basic cleansings will be suitable for most non-haunted properties, sometimes it can be hard (or even impossible) to determine if there are entities present without a divination ritual.

How to Cleanse a Home or Property Yourself

After you have determined it is possible to cleanse a home or property yourself, the next step is to decide the methodology. And as mentioned, there are many ways to cleanse a property, however, there are two methods which are more commonly practiced.

Crystal Cleansings

Crystal cleansings are one of the most common types of cleansings for homes and property, as they can be setup throughout the home without intruding much on day-to-day living.  A crystal cleansing can mean placing a stone in the room where the cleansing needs to occur and leaving it for a period of time (such as overnight). It could mean lighting some candles and meditating with a crystal in each room of the home.  Crystals are sometimes placed in every corner, or every room of the home.  Some practitioners prefer to place the crystals in the center of the room, where they can absorb the energy inward, and then the crystals can be buried.  Other practices involve placing crystals in each of the corners of the room to draw the energy outwards, or to prevent negativity from even entering the room to begin with.  There are very intricate crystal routines which cast a “protective, cleansing net” around a home (usually the crystals surround the property lines for this type of cleansing).  There are also remote crystal cleansings, where the crystals are not present in the physical home itself at any point in time.

Some of the most common crystals used in cleansing and protection spells include: Amethyst, Black Moonstone, Black Tourmaline, Carnelian, Chevron, Citrine, Jasper, Jet, Lapis Luzuli, Onyx, Quartz Crystal, Rose Quartz, Smokey Quartz, and Turquoise.

Sage Cleansings

Sage is a powerful cleansing incense. It has been used to cleanse homes, properties, people, rituals, and circles for thousands of years.  Sage wands can be used to move from room to room in a home, warding away evil and negativity.  The wands will disseminate an energy which expunges entities from a room, and it can give even some of the rottenest homes a fresh start. Burning sage produces a thick smoke which can be a problem for smoke detectors and should not be inhaled.  A respirator is highly recommended when conducting a sage cleansing.

Some Last Words of Advice When Cleansing a Home or Property…

Cleansing a home or property is a good idea when it is new (upon moving in), when you move out, and as regular maintenance.  Some practitioners suggest cleansing your home as often as once a week.  It can be as simple as lighting a candle and meditating with a crystal or working a single sage wand from room to room, but general maintenance can go a long way in the spiritual happiness of your home.  When entities are involved, however, the cleansings will definitely need to be more potent and thorough. And remember, it is always best to get the advice of a professional coven or practitioner if you believe your home is haunted, possessed, harboring negative energy, or otherwise requires a cleansing.  Ancient Wicks Witches Coven is happy to offer you our free advice and provide any suggestions we can!
