Your home is a sanctuary for you and your loved ones. Anyone entering your home (including you) should immediately feel peacefulness surround him or her. By spending a few minutes each week, you can turn your home into a peaceful and loving sanctuary.

Our homes are mirrors of ourselves. They reflect our interests, beliefs, our spirit and our passions. Your home is not just an extension of your thoughts and feelings — your home is you! Homes are nourished by how we hold them in our hearts.

Each of us is surrounded by an energy field. Your home has an energy field, too. A person’s feelings imprint on their physical objects and surroundings. All the feelings and thoughts of the current inhabitants as well as previous inhabitants influence the emotional energy of your home. Each physical object inside the home has the emanations of the people who previously owned it as well as the creator of the object. The thoughts, personalities and activities of those who lived on the land before the house was built also affect the emotional energy of the house. Your home is affected by the energy fields surrounding it — other buildings, electrical currents, trees, landscape, etc. The most important thing influencing the energy of your home is the love that is given and received within its walls.

Energy in a house is similar to a mountain stream. There are areas of the stream that pick up sticks, leaves and other debris. Over time, the water flow becomes partially clogged and sometimes stagnant. If you clear the debris the water begins to flow freely until it becomes clogged again. Cleaning and clearing the energy of a house is similar to removing debris from the mountain stream. You energize and revitalize the places where energy tends to go dormant or stagnant. However, after a while the energy will become sluggish again, so it is necessary to perform energy cleaning on a regular basis.

Ideas on how to improve and clean the energy of your home:

Always begin by calming and centering yourself. Begin by the front door and have it be your intent that you are going to improve and clean the energy in and around your home. A suggested affirmation would be:

 “I love myself; therefore, I provide for myself a comfortable home, one that fills all my needs and is a pleasure to be in. I fill the rooms with the vibration of love so that all who enter, myself included, will feel this love and be nourished by it.”   Louise Hay

As you clean, visualize the white protective light pouring from your hands into everything that you touch. Visualize that this light is clearing and removing any negative or stagnant energy.

Place fresh flowers or potpourri in each room OR light a candle in each room. In each room ask that all negative and stagnant energy leave.

Walk through each room with a burning stick of incense. In each room ask that all negative and stagnant energy leave.

Use a broom to “sweep” out any residue stress or negative energy lying around. Sweep it right out the front door.

As you vacuum, ask all negative or stagnant energy to leave the room. Visualize that unwanted energies are being sucked into the vacuum bag.

Open windows and doors wide and allow a fresh wind to move through the house. Visualize a cleansing white light moving from room to room.

Add wind chimes outside your house. Visualize that the sound of the wind chimes drives away any negative or stagnant energy from your home.

Add water fountains to the interior or exterior of your home. Visualize that the sound of running water drives away all negative and stagnant energy.

Use clapping OR bells ringing OR singing OR drums OR gongs in each room to drive out any negative or stagnant energy. Be sure to do the corners of each room.

Go around the house and place a drop of oil (see recipes at end of article) or sprinkle “energized water” on each window and in each corner of every room in the house. Ask that all negative and stagnant energy leave.

Use room freshener (see recipes at end of article) or an aroma lamp in each room. Ask all negative and stagnant energy to leave.

Additional times when “energy cleaning” is needed:
When was the last time you did a MAJOR house cleaning? Take time to go through each room and to look at each object in your home. If you do not love or use the object, then get rid of it. How long has it been since an object was moved? More than a year? Move furniture and objects in a room to change the energy.

• When you feel stuck in your job or life — change the energy in your home to change the energy in your life.

• When you are stuck in a relationship going nowhere — change the energy of your home.

• When you are bored — change the energy of your home to change your emotions.

• After illness or injury. Reinstate a strong healthy energy to your home.

• After negative experiences or difficult guests. Clean the energy in your home.

• If you feel tired and drained all the time. Change the energy of your house to get other areas of your life into motion.

• After a robbery. Do a thorough energy cleaning to get rid of negative energy left from the thief as well as your own negative emotions of dismay, anger, fear, etc.

•After arguments. Do a thorough energy cleaning to get rid of leftover negative emotions and energies. Ask harmony and love to return to each room.
