We cleanse our home energetically in order to welcome good, high vibration energy into your space, and clear away any negative vibes. This way, not only are our bodies vibin’ high and in total alignment with our dreams, but so is our home.
A home filled with good vibes brings on better conversation, meditation, cooking, working, creativity and so much more. There will be less fights, misunderstandings, arguments and sadness. The place you spend most of your time should be a space you want to spend time in, and create beautiful things.
Feel the energy, love your space, sink into its bliss!
1. Burn Sage
Burning smudge sticks made from sage, or any other purifying herb, like lavender, or sweet grass is energetically purifying to the home. Burning sage clears any unwanted energies out of the room, and welcomes high vibration, good energy in its place. After an argument or fight, it’s a great idea to burn sage to move that energy out, and move on. Go through each room of your home with a burning smudge stick, waving it in a clockwise motion with thoughts of cleansing and positivity.
2. Ask “do I really need this?”
Every few months it’s a great idea to go through your house and think about what things are truly necessary for you to keep. Figure out which of them you can donate, throw away or give to a friend.
As humans we tend to collect way too many items that we will never EVER use. Keeping these things in our homes is only making us cluttered, cramped and overwhelmed. It can be super therapeutic to get rid of the things that no longer serve us. Let go, allow the energetic release… go with it. The items we hold on to could be saying a lot more about us, and you may find a deep message about your self during this release.
Extra tip: you may find it easier to do this during a new moon, where our bodies and mind are releasing and able to let go more easily.
3. Pink Himalayan Salt Lamps
I absolutely love pink salt, and I use it for all my cooking. But there’s so much more it can do! Crystal lamps give off a sweet glowy vibe that makes you feel good just by looking at it. The pink/orange color affects us both physically and emotionally. It gives off a comforting feeling of safeness and security. It’s even said that this light is good for our nervous system, kidneys and bladder.
Salt lamps also give off negative ion particles. Negative ions cling to positive ion particles (which we don’t want) and weigh them down to the ground so that they aren’t floating through our air and putting us out of balance. This is a simple way of energetically cleansing and purifying the air. Good vibes!
4. Singing and Dancing
Moving your body with the rhythm of your emotions is healing to the mind and soul. And singing like no one can hear you, with fire and joy, can be such a release. Let the spirit move you!!!! As you swing and howl or scream with passion, you are filling each room with your uplifting, animating vibration.
5. Beeswax Candles
Another way to produce those lovely negative ions is by burning all natural 100% beeswax candles. Beeswax gives of a soothing deep yellow glow. This is stress reducing and puts us in a “feel good” mood. At the same time, negative ions are produced, cleaning the air, and also weighing down allergens and other irritating particles.
Plus, beeswax smells amazing. This is such an inviting aroma, the subtle sweetness of honey is oh so delicious. I could spend hours just gazing at a lit beeswax candle and breathing in its intoxicating aroma. This really soothes the soul.
Having a clean energy in your home enhances meditation. And meditation enhances the energy in your home! So this is a win-win situation. There are countless benefits to this practice, and this inner work seeps into the space around us, too. I can definitely feel this good energy in the home of other meditators, too.
The meditation practice I do is Transcendental Meditation, which is done twice daily – and has quite honestly changed my life. If you think you’re ready to learn, reach out and I can get you in touch with a recommended teacher.
7. Diffuse Essential Oils
Essential oils are one of the best ways to vibe up your space with fresh fragrance and good energy. Each essential oil has its own qualities, and characteristics, and you can choose based on your mood. Sweet orange, lemon and grapefruit are very uplifting and cleansing. Lavender and frankincense will be calming, and good for stress relief and relaxation. You will need an essential oil burner to diffuse these aromas. This is also the secret to having the best smelling house on the block!!
8. Get Rid of Clutter
A clean space is a clear mind! Put the little things away, and keep everything in order. To do this the majority of the items in your home should have a designated space. Think about it. If you want to clean your house, but there’s no specific space for the items wandering around, they just end up getting piled up and moved around.
Less clutter means less overwhelm! We don’t want our minds to be any busier than they already are. Create a sense of calm in your home instead.
Extra tip: Take out the trash, and OFTEN! This keeps the air smelling and feeling fresh! If you ever find yourself feeling overwhelmed and stagnant, taking out the trash can help bring some quick relief.
Keeping live plants in the home makes it a livelier place! The more life we welcome into our space, the more enjoyable it is, and the more inviting it is to our guests. You want to see that the beings in this space are thriving and full of life, a bright and beautiful splash of green displays this perfectly. This brings me to another point. Be sure to remove those dead plants that are dried up and collecting dust. There’s no room for them in this high vibe and fresh space no mo’! Only fresh and vibrant energy! The oxygen is purifying too.
Having an array of beautiful and charged crystals in your home ups the good vibes big time. You can charge your crystals to enhance their healing properties by placing them in the sunlight, moonlight or near a lit beeswax candle. They’re alluring to the eye, and each healing in their own ways. Just look at how gorgeous they are! Anything with such beauty and naturally intricate design is sure to bring good energy into the home.
11. Burn Natural Incense
Burning incense is another lovely way to purify your home, and fill it with a delicious scent to soothe the mind. I love to burn sandalwood, amber and frankincense. Always be sure to buy all natural, hand rolled incense. Never buy anything that smells “perfumey” or artificial, this will only pump chemicals and bad vibes into the home. Keep it pure and buy the good stuff. Prasad Celestial Incense is a brand I LOVE.
12. Fresh Flowers
Bringing fresh flowers home to fill the house is so lovely. It adds a beautiful splash of color to brighten the room, and if they’re aromatic, you’ll be sniffing them in all day, too. Pretty flowers, fresh vibe, these make a welcoming home.
13. Open the Windows and Doors
Allow fresh air to fill your home for at least five minutes each day. Let the wind naturally exchange air that has been cooped up with some fresh and vibrant, oxygen filled breeze. Even during winter months this should be done!
14. Listen to Vedic Mantras
The vibrations of these ancient Vedic sounds will enhance the energy in your home and heart. Let these sounds fill your home with their energy of bliss, allow yourself to sink into it. I will list a few mantras that I believe enhance mood, energy and vibrations. You can find audio or video recordings of these mantras online. You don’t have to know their words or understand their meanings, the vibrations do the work on their own.
The Mrityunjaya Mantra (which literally means victory over death) is very healing to the body, and promotes good health.
The Hrim seed mantra is purifying and cleansing to the home, body and spirit.
The Gayatri is one of my favorites. So sweet, gentle and calming. This mantra always makes me feel safe, protected and in good hands. The Gayatri gives us a good vibe of peacefulness and clarity.
Love Your Space
These vibrations live in the walls, in the plants and the breaths of each human living here. Good vibes remain, and can always be recharged, cleansed and powered up again. You can never do any of this too much. Keep it going, and keep it energized. Love your space.
Dwelling in a home of good vibrations connects us deeper to our inner divinity. It brings us closer to unlocking the potential we all have within. This lets our hearts move freely. You will FEEL this energy. Let it charge you up, and come alive! Open up, and welcome this love and abundance into your life.
