Feeling drained, overwhelmed, or just bogged down by negative energy in your environment? It's time for a transformative cleanse! Our spaces hold onto energy, both positive and negative, and sometimes they could use a little reset. One powerful way to achieve this transformation is through smudging. By burning herbs and allowing the smoke to fill your space, you can clear out the old, stagnant energy and invite in fresh, positive vibes. Let's explore 5 ways you can cleanse your space and rejuvenate your energy today!

Cleansed Space

1- Cleansing with Smudge sticks

Smudge sticks are the most common way to cleanse energy. One powerful smudge stick is Palo Santo, a sacred wood known for its healing and cleansing properties. Palo Santo, which translates to "holy wood" in Spanish, emits a fragrant smoke that can help clear negative energy and promote a sense of calm and tranquillity. When using smudge sticks, it's important to be mindful of fire safety. Light the Palo Santo stick, let it burn for a moment, and then blow it out. Allow the smoke to cleanse the space, paying special attention to corners and doorways. Make sure all windows and doors are open for the energy to flow.

Here are some examples of different smudge sticks: Palo Santo, lavender, eucalyptus, rosemary and cedar.

2- Cleansing with crystals

Crystals are not only beautiful but also powerful energy cleansers. When choosing crystals for energy cleansing, consider their properties and your specific needs. Some crystals, like selenite and black tourmaline, are particularly effective at absorbing and transmuting negative energy. To cleanse your space with crystals, place them strategically around your home or create a crystal grid for amplified energy clearing. You can also use a selenite wand to sweep through the air, clearing out any lingering negativity.

Here are some examples of different crystals: Black Obsidian, Citrine, Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Selenite.

3- Cleansing with sound

Sound has an incredible power to shift energy on a vibrational level. Tools like singing bowls or bells or clapping your hands loudly can help break up stagnant energy and create a more harmonious atmosphere. Play soothing music or nature sounds to infuse your space with positive vibrations and drown out any negativity.

Here are some examples of different ways to make sound: Singing bowls, Tuning forks, Bells, Chanting.

4- Cleansing with salt

Salt has long been used for its purifying properties. A simple salt ritual involves placing bowls of sea salt in the corners of your rooms to absorb negative energy. The salt acts as a sponge, drawing in the negative energy. Allow the salt to sit for a day or two, then discard it outside, visualizing all the negativity being carried away. You can also sprinkle salt at the thresholds of your home to create a protective barrier against unwanted energy, preventing it from entering your space. If you want to keep the ghost's out... GET THE SALT!!

Here are some examples of salts you can use: Himalayan, Dead Sea, Epsom salts

What are the benefits?

When you incorporate smudging and other cleansing practices into your routine, you're not just freshening up your space but also revitalizing your energy on a deeper level. Here are some of the benefits of smudging your home:

  • Clearing Negative Energy:  Smudging helps release negative energy, creating a more positive and uplifting environment.

  • Reducing Stress:  Cleansing rituals can have a calming effect on the mind and body, reducing stress and promoting relaxation.

  • Improving Sleep:  By clearing out energetic disturbances, you can create a more peaceful sleeping environment conducive to restful sleep.

  • Enhancing Focus:  A clean and clear space allows for improved concentration and mental clarity, helping you stay focused on your tasks.

  • Inviting Positivity:  Cleansing your space can attract positive energy, opportunities, and experiences into your life.

Personally, after I cleanse my room or house using a smudge stick, I experience a profound sense of calm and clarity. The air felt lighter as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders, and it was easier to breathe. The scent of the burning herbs lingered, creating a soothing atmosphere and inviting positivity and good energy into my space. It was an experience that left me feeling refreshed and renewed, ready to embrace whatever lay ahead.

DISCLAIMER: Please be cautious while cleansing if you have breathing problems, chest problems, or pets. Don't leave any flames unattended

Your home is your sanctuary! Fill it with light, love, and positivity. Happy cleansing!
