Energy created by emotions, feelings and thoughts can not only impact us and others around us, it can also impact our home. Our home is a place of comfort and rest, however if energy begins to build up which can happen through meditating or exercising within the home or not releasing your own built up emotions and frustrations, the energy then can become stuck.
I work from a home office, where I also meditate and workout often, which is such an outlet for me to release and let go of thoughts, feelings and frustrations. Within the past week however this energy began to build up and became stuck in my office and within myself. The impact from this meant I became extremely exhausted, constantly wanting to sleep and not being able to function properly. I'm sensitive to energy in general and could feel that it wasn't necessary my own and the office felt heavy and clouded, making it difficult for me to work and focus within that space. Because of this, I had to do a thorough cleanse of myself and my home to release it and I can't tell you how much better I feel after doing this!
Here's my top tips on how to cleanse and clear the energy from yourself and your home:
Sage is a great tool to use for smudging regularly to clear and cleanse yourself and your home. Smudging is the process of lighting a white ceremonial sage bundle (aka wand), which is usually bound together by a thin string and circling in an anti-clockwise direction around yourself and within each room of your home. When I'm smudging I like to say out-loud something along the lines of "I'm releasing the energy back to mother nature, to be restored, to be renewed, to be regenerated. Any energy that is not mine, any energy that does not serve me or this home, any dirty or stagnant energy, I am now releasing to the universe leaving me with only love and light energy." There is no set saying you need to stick to when smudging, whatever feels right to you - I believe if you say it with power and intention it will work! When smudging, ensure that your windows are open so the energy can leave the home and be released. You can pick up Sage bundles at crystal, health food or herb stores.
Salt bath or ocean swim
Creating a salt bath or salt wash to cleanse is a great way to get rid of excess energy, I use Himalayan salt and either add to a bath or scrub over my skin in the shower. If you're lucky enough to live close to an ocean immerse yourself into the water, providing a natural and powerful salt cleanse.
Another quick and easy tool to absorb energy is by adding salt into a bowl with water and placing around your home. I currently have a bowl in each room of my place to take away any of the residue energy. It's perfectly fine to have a salt bowl within your home constantly, just ensure you change it over at least once a week, as just like us and our homes the energy will also build up into these bowls.
Crystals offer an endless amount of support to us, if you need help with something, anything - there is a crystal that can help! The explanation of how crystals work is a whole other blog within itself, so I won't go into this today, however if you're a crystal owner you'll understand the powers of crystals, and if you're not, I suggest going into your local crystal store to test out the energy of each. It's a really fascinating and simple test to see which crystal is right for you! Just place one into your hand and close your palm around it to see if you can feel any energy. The energy can be heat or an electric-like feeling, if you feel this it's the crystal for you!
I've slightly steered off topic, although I wanted to give you a basic insight into crystals. For protecting and clearing your home however the best crystals to have are Citrine, Rose Quartz and Amethyst - don't forget to cleanse these often with your sage as they will absorbing energy daily.
Music is a very powerful shiftier of energy. I'm one of those people who is constantly listing to music - when I'm getting ready in the morning, when I'm working, cleaning the house, cooking etc. I'm always playing something! There is lots of great cleaning and clearing tracks on youtube, both music and Hz (which are sound frequencies that create a specific vibration to specifically to cleanse and clear energy). Play this loudly within your home to clear the space.
If you've cleansed the energy within your home and within yourself and are still feeling drained, all that's left to do is rest! Take some time out, watch a doco on netflix, read a book or go for a relaxing walk, a good nights sleep will always do you wonders as well! I suggest cleansing and clearing at least weekly to stop the energy from building up. If you still feel like the energy isn't shifting you may need the help of a healer, but majority of the time you can manage and clear the energy yourself.
