In preparation for the cold months ahead, autumn is the ideal time to cleanse your home's energy.
The energy in your home should support, uplift, and feed you as you spend more time inside.
Cleansing your home's energy is the first step. Cleansing, also known as purification, is the practice of clearing out and releasing negative energy and energy that’s just old, stale, stagnant or no longer serving you. Clear out the old and allow new, fresh energy to flow. Cleansing helps keep the energy from lingering long-term in spaces and objects constantly occupied by people.
1. Start your ritual by grounding yourself: place your feet firmly on the floor, take a deep breath through your nose, and release it out of your mouth. Consider opening the windows and doors, lighting some candles, or placing crystals around your space.
2. Light the end of your smudge stick with a match or a lighter when ready. Gently extinguish it, so it begins to produce smoke.
3. You can then wave the smoke around your body or into the corners of a room to cleanse the energy or place the smudge stick in a sacred dish or abalone shell to burn for a while. You could walk around the room counterclockwise to banish negative energy or just sit and soak up the fresh, cleansing energy.
Sending Fall Blessings of Love and Light!
