TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “How to Spring Clean the Energy of Your Home”

Feng Shui

Your home is a representation of your mind, body and spirit. In many ways, there is a connection between all of these energies.

When your environment feels good, it helps you to feel good and just the same, when you feel good within, that is also reflected in your environment.

You may have heard the saying, home is where the heart is, and this is perhaps true in more ways than one. Perhaps on the deepest level, your home is a reflection of your heart.

As we enter into a new season and start the new astrological year, it is important to clear out any clutter from your home.

This is especially true if you have been dealing with heavy energies, or if you have been feeling stuck and stagnant in your life.

If you want to create a new environment for yourself, if you want to create new energy in your life, one way to invite this in is to start with the space that you live in.

Here is how to energetically cleanse your home in order to welcome in new energy-

Step 1: Start with Physical Cleaning

You can’t energetically cleanse your space until you have physically cleaned it. Go into every room in your house and start removing items that you no longer need or that are no longer aligned with your vision. Once the clutter is removed, begin scrubbing, dusting and so on- fun, I know!

Step 2: Smudge Your Home

Once your home is physically cleansed, it is time to do an energy cleansing. You can read more about how to cleanse your home with sage here. (If you don’t like Sage you can also use incense, Palo Santo or bells).

Step 3: Place Crystals in your Home

To invite a flow of positive, loving and healing energy into your home, use crystals. Here are some suggestions-

 

  • Place amethyst by your front door in order to protect your home from negative energy
  • Place two pieces of rose quartz in the bedroom in order to invite positive and harmonious relationships
  • Place citrine in the home office to invite abundance and prosperity
  • Place clear quartz near all technology like computers, internet routers and the TV in order to minimise free radical damage
  • Place celestite in the dining room or family area to promote happy conversations and to invite blessings from angels

Step 4: Decorate with Nature

Bringing nature inside the home is a great way to evoke positive energy and to clear the energy of your home. Certain indoor plants have also been proven to work just like a natural air filter. Here are some of the best options when it comes to clearing the air in your home-

  • Aloe vera
  • Gerbera Daisy
  • Bamboo Palm/ Lady Palm/ Areca Palm / Date Palm
  • Ficus Alii
  • Peace Lily
  • Boston Fern
  • Corn Plant
  • English Ivy

Step 5: Adopt the Principles of Feng Shui

Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese design art of bringing positive energy into the home. One of the simplest principles of Feng Shui is to balance the energy of earth, air, fire, water and metal in each room. Here are a few basic Feng Shui principles you can adopt-

  • In order to create a clear flow of energy, avoid having cluttered spaces and areas of the home that are cramped and crowded. Perhaps take a walk through your home and see if you can create a clear channel for positive energy to flow.
  • In watery rooms of the house like bathrooms, bring in more earthy elements such as plants, rocks and crystals
  • The bed should be positioned in the room so its diagonal to the door- you don’t want to sleep directly opposite the door and you don’t want to sleep next to the door
  • When decorating in your bedroom, try to create balance and symmetry on both sides of the bed
  • In the home office, your desk should be in the “power position” which is in direct view of the door- never sit with you back facing the door or with your head facing a wall
  • Try to bring as much natural light into the home as possible, especially in the family room and kitchen
  • Don’t keep items stored under the bed, this is said to block the flow of energy and can interrupt a good night of sleep
  • Furniture should be placed in a way so it does not restrict the passage or flow of energy through the room- if possible, people should sit with their backs to the wall
  • Sharp corners on tables are said to promote harsh energy, so choose rounded corners whenever possible
  • Do not keep broken items in the home, as they are believed to carry “broken” energy
  • Fix clogged drains, as a build up of water indicates that energy is not able to freely flow
  • Bathroom doors and toilet lids should be kept closed at night in order to promote the flow of positive energy

Step 6: Create an Altar

Find a spot in your home to create your own private altar. This is like a sacred space where you can home to meditate or simply sit and reflect. You can also include precious items on your altar such as crystals, photographs and even any wishes or affirmations that you have made for the coming year. Here are a few other suggestions on how to create an altar.

Happy spring cleansing!

TANAAZ orever Conscious): “Feeling Foggy? An Energetic Perspective on Brain Fog”

brain-fog.jpg

We all feel foggy at times. This foggy energy can hang around us like a dark cloud, confusing our thoughts, making us feel lethargic and blocking us from our creativity.

Brain fog traditionally has been associated with a poor diet. In fact, if you have been suffering with brain fog and have not been looking at your diet, you may want to start there first.

Usually the common culprits for brain fog include- a diet that is either too alkaline or too acidic, gluten, sugar, preservatives and artificial colorings and flavors. Certain medications may also be linked to brain fog, so you may want to check with your medical professional to see if there is an alternative solution.

Drinking lots of water and getting plenty of sleep are also excellent strategies when faced with feelings of brain fog.

As you begin your healing journey with brain fog, it may also be worth considering that it can sometimes be caused by the energy frequencies around you.

At any given time we are dealing with three main energies or frequencies:

  1. The energy of mind, body and spirit
  2. The energy of your environment and other people
  3. The Divine energy or Universal energy

These three energy fields are always there for you to access, but during a period of brain fog, often you are stuck between the energy of your mind, body and spirit (self) and the energy of your environment (other).

In many ways, brain fog is what happens when you get stuck between your inner world and your outer world.

More and more I am hearing from friends and clients about this constant feeling of brain fog and it may also be due to the energy shifts that we have recently been experiencing.

Empaths and those sensitive to energy are also more likely to find themselves in the midst of brain fog, as they have the ability to really feel all of the energies and frequencies that are at play. This can be overly stimulating, which can also cause a foggy feeling.

If you are suffering from brain fog, here are some suggestions on what you can do-

1.) Diet First

Your diet is so important to your health and overall energy field. If your mind is foggy, it very well could be a sign that you need to detox or change your diet. If you are on a detox diet and feeling foggy, this could also be a sign of your body struggling to release toxins. If this is the case, keep drinking lots of water and perhaps try supporting your elimination pathways and digestive system.

2.) Cleanse Your Energy

If you are surrounded in fog you have to pay particular attention to your energy. Start by taking your hand and brushing the energy from around your energy field. Imagine your hand brushing away any fog or clouds that may be surrounding you. Once you have done this, imagine sprinkling healing light all over your body that is protective and nourishing. You can also use other aura clearing practices like smudging, flower essences and sound healing and so on.

3.) Cleanse Your Environment

The next step is to cleanse your environment. You can’t cleanse other people without their permission but you can send them blessings and you can cleanse your space.

Smudging is the best way to cleanse a space but if you are not a fan of the smoke, you can also use essential oil sprays or visualise a white light permeating through the room. If you have to deal with negative people, try wearing a protective crystal or visualizing yourself in a cocoon of white light.

4.) Spend Time in Nature

The fastest way to rebalance your energy and clear away any fog is to spend time in nature. Perhaps make the time to go up into the mountains or down to the water to recharge your batteries and release any stuck energy that is surrounding you. In fact, just 30 minutes of being deep out in nature is enough to notice profound healing effects.

5.) Creative Activities

If you are dealing with brain fog it may be that you are overthinking about something or obsessing about something. In order to help release any thoughts and to channel the energy of your brain into something more productive, try a creative activity like drawing, colouring or painting. Creative activities are also very calming and can help to ease an overactive mind.

Brain fog is one of those things that will come and go at different times in your life. From a metaphysical perspective, brain fog occurs when you get stuck in a particular field of energy.

To counteract this, all you need to do is pay attention to the energy around you and within you and take action to rebalance and center yourself. Usually through just being aware of this, it is enough to help shift things.

TANAAZ (Forever Conscious): “Why Cleanliness Is Next To Godliness”

cleanlinessisnexttogodliness (2).jpg

Why is cleanliness next to Godliness? Is there some deeper truth to this or is this just what your mother would say to get you to clean your room?

Everything in this Universe vibrates at a certain frequency, and I mean everything. Every thought, every speck of dust, every piece of clothing, every tiny grain of bacteria and every item in your space has a vibration that emits a frequency.

Take a moment to look around the space that you are in. Every object has an energy and just the same every thought or every word ever spoken in that space also has an energy. This can be a lot of energy, especially when you are in a cluttered space or in a space with lots of people or things.

It seems only natural then, that energy can build up in a space over time and create a certain feeling in the air.

We have all felt the distinct difference between taking a walk through a temple where the air is very clean and pure, compared to taking a walk through a shopping mall where there is a lot of clutter and stagnant energy.

Cleanliness is not just about germs and putting everything in its place, cleanliness is also about being energetically clean. When your space is cluttered and full of negative or stagnant energy, it pushes you out of alignment.

Just the same, when you are in a space that is energetically clean it pushes you in alignment with your soul, which is the same as Godliness.

We all know how to physically clean a space and while that is very important, it is also important to know how to energetically clean your space as well.

Most of us have lots of energy that has built up in our homes and on our bodies, and we get so used to this energy being there that we don’t even notice it until its gone.

This is amplified if your space is also cluttered and disorganised, as the energy from all the “things” in your space and all the mess also adds to the build up of energy.

For centuries, people have been smudging spaces and auras in order to clean away stagnant and negative energy. In Buddhist temples you will find incense, in a Shamanic ceremony they use sage and in a Zoroastrian fire temple they burn sandalwood.

Smudging is an ancient practice that has also been scientifically proven to clear away 94 percent of bacteria from the air for 24 hours. If smudging can be powerful enough to remove physical matter, it can definitely be powerful enough to remove energetic matter as well.

When your space is clear and clean, it naturally lifts your vibration, which allows you to feel motivated, inspired and creative. A clear space can also heighten your intuition and psychic perception.

Smudging with sage is a great way to clear negative energy from the air, but here are some other options you can try as well-

  • Himalayan Salt Lamps
  • Essential Oils
  • Incense
  • Flower Essence Sprays
  • Gem Water Sprays
  • Palo Santo
  • Candles
  • Housing cleansing potion (recipe below)

House Cleansing Potion

This recipe makes a potent house cleansing “potion” that you can make to clear the negative energy from your home and also protect your home with positive and clear energy. This potion is great for clearing away energy from unwelcome visitors or if you really want to purge and cleanse the energy of the old in order to welcome in the new.

This is also a great recipe to use when you move into a new home or when someone leaves your home that used to live there (a partner or roommate). You can also use this recipe to ward off negative people from entering your home or to drive away beings that are not aligned with light and love.

You Will Need:

  • Few Sprigs of Rosemary
  • Few Springs of Sage
  • 1 lemon cut in half
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • Rose petals (handful)
  • Cloves (1/4 cup)
  • Cardamon pods (4-5 crushed)

(You can adjust the ingredients according to your own intuition, strong smell herbs are great for purifying and banishing, spices are great for healing and protecting and flowers or sweet smells are great for adding positive energy).

Directions:

  1. Clean your entire house from top to bottom
  2. Cleanse your aura
  3. Open up all the room doors in your house- you are now ready to make your potion
  4. Place all of the ingredients into a pot and cover with water. Gently boil the potion on the lowest heat until it starts bubbling and steaming.
  5. When you see the smoke starting to rise, gently remove the pot from the stove and carry it carefully into the center of the room or space, at this point you can recite your intention. Leave the pot there until the steam dissipates.
  6. After the potion stops steaming, return the pot to the stove and boil it up again until it is steaming. Turn off the heat and leave it to cool.
  7. Repeat this for 3 days in a row using the same brew. On the third day after you have let the pot sit in the middle of the room and its cooled, discard the water into the garden.

NORMA LEHMEIER HARTIE: “How To Remove Negative Energy From Your Home”

smudging-2-2

The main reason to clear a space — your home, your car or your office — is to remove negative energies.  Negative energies occur for a number of reasons.  They include:

Metaphysical

  • Negative thoughts from current or previous owners or occupants
  • Disturbed emotional energy of current or previous owners or occupants
  • Disturbed environmental energy
  • Dimensional beings

Earth Energies

  • Faulting pressure (Faults are breaks in the Earth’s crust where chunks of land on each side move in different directions.  Land suddenly shifting along fault lines is the primary cause of earthquakes.)
  • Negative magnetic fields
  • Disturbances from naturally occurring underground water

Technology

  • Electrical appliances such as cell phones, computers, microwave ovens and hair dryers

Objects

  • Antiques
  • Used or new furniture
  • Second-hand jewelry
  • Works of art
  • Crafts
  • Anything made by hand, including such possessions as rugs

Every time you clean your home you are removing negative energy.  Cleaning your home or workspace will make it lighter and more positive.  This is a result of organizing, of ridding yourself of things you no longer need and removing toxic products from your environment.  Just opening windows brings in fresh, positive energy.

Other space clearing techniques include dowsing; smudging with herbs or incense; clearing with bells, cymbals and singing bowls; and clearing with chanting.

How to Clear Your Home of Negative Energy

No matter what method or methods you chose to clear negative or disturbed energies, always clear mindfully and without distractions. Turn off the stereo and television—you need to clear in a quiet atmosphere. Your intent is to clear disturbed or negative energies. When clearing, visualize these energies disappearing. The reason that you should be specific is that you want the good energy left undisturbed. If you chose to smudge with herbs, for example, speak aloud or silently words to convey that you are removing negative energy.

Clearing is done in a meditative-type state — slowly and with focus — so the words are much like a mantra.  Keep them simple.  For example, if I am smudging, I will think “negativity be gone!” or “if there is negative energy present, please leave.”  At the same time, I visualize the space vibrant with only positive energy.

Every home and workspace should be cleared periodically.  It is impossible to say exactly how often, as it depends on your situation.  You will develop a feel for how often you need to clear negative energies.  The following is a guide for good times to clear negative energies.

When and What to Clear of Negative Energy

  • When you move into a new residence, clean and clear the space meticulously.  You are clearing any possible negative or disturbed emotions of the previous occupants and other negative or disturbed energies.  Clear your new office for the same reason.
  • Following an illness of a member of a household the negative energy should be cleared.
  • All objects that are antiques, previously used (particularly jewelry), works of art, crafts and anything made by hand should be individually cleared of negative energy.  When feasible, wash items as well.  If you buy an antique rocking chair, for example, that chair may have been sat on for years by the same person.  This is great if it was a happy person — not so great if it was a miserable person.  The energy of the rocking chair’s previous owner is in that chair.

On the subject of buying something that was previous used, I highly recommend that you do not purchase a second-hand bed.  So much time is spent in bed — therefore, too much energy of the previous owner(s) is in a bed.  Do you really want to gamble on who spent time in your bed?  If you already have a used bed that you love, or insist on buying a used bed, learn how to dowse or hire someone to dowse it for you.

Jewelry, Crystals and Gemstones

Second-hand jewelry should be cleared, as jewelry picks up the energy of the wearer.  You may wish to clear all your jewelry, crystals and gemstones, especially if you have been feeling poorly.  Be especially mindful of clearing only negative energy when working on an inherited piece from a loved one.

There are a number of methods for clearing jewelry, gemstones and crystals:

  1. To clear gemstones and crystals, sea salt works well.  Salt can be dissolved or used dry.  For salt water, mix a tablespoon of sea salt with a cup of cold water in a glass or ceramic container.  Do not use plastic or metal containers.  Place the stones in the solution for several hours or overnight.  With dry salt, bury pieces in a glass or ceramic container and leave for several hours or overnight.  When clearing gemstone necklaces, use dry salt, as the water solution will deteriorate the cord that the beads were strung on.  Discard salt.
  2. Wash in the ocean.
  3. Clear in sunlight — allow to sit in the sun for a day.
  4. Clear in moonlight.  Bury in the earth overnight with a full moon.
  5. Smudge all jewelry, gemstones and crystals.
  6. You can clear jewelry of negative energy with a pendulum.

 

Clear negative energies if you or other members of your household are feeling poorly for any unexplained reason.  This can include any mental, physical or emotional upset.  This is most notable if a change occurs following a move into a new home or office.

ALEXA PELLEGRINI: “Psychic Housekeeping: How To Banish Negativity From Your Space”

Header-43-700x325

When negative psychic energy accumulates within your home, you may feel easily tired, emotionally imbalanced, and struggle with maintaining relationships or holding down a job without realizing why. The answer is simple: like our bodies and spirits, our homes must be cleansed of negativity, too!

Clearing out negative energy in your home is the best way to finally make way for the new and improve your quality of life.

Smudge with Herbs For Optimal Cleansing

Smudging with sage is a classic way to free your home of troublesome energy, and it’s easy to buy for cheap. Sage is the perfect tool to use during times of crisis in your household. You can also smudge with your own blend of herbs by using an incense burner with a charcoal disk or a dish filled with sand. I recommend blending sandalwood, mistletoe, lavender and sage. Sandalwood generates loving energies; mistletoe increases your resolve to banish negativity; and lavender purifies toxic influences in your environment. Here is a smudging exercise to bless your home:

Header-43A

  1. Prepare your sage or blend of herbs. Take caution to ensure that your materials are in a safe location when burning.
    • You may want to meditate beforehand to prepare yourself for the exercise.
  2. As you light your sage or herbs, picture the rising smoke as a magnet for negativity. Visualize the smoke drawing in a visible darkness and clearing the way for beams of light. Begin in your room, then work your way downstairs.

    • It may help to use mantras while smudging. ‘I banish negativity from my home’ is one mantra that may work.
  3. Finish the exercise at the back door of your home. Open the door and visualize the negative energy in your home exiting out the door.
  4. Block this negative energy from reentering your home by hanging a protective amulet, such as the Hamsa, Evil Eye or a purifying stone (i.e., Clear Crystal Quartz) at the front and back doors.

Ward Off Negativity with Joyful Speech

When family members are frequently depressed, angry and unable to help themselves, don’t get caught up in their negativity –  try chanting a compassionate prayer or mantra to bring light into your loved one’s life. The positive energy released during this recitation will act as a healing influence on your home and as psychic protection from a loved one’s negative emotions.

Using Stones for Purification and Grounding

  • Clear crystal quartz is one of the best stones to use to eliminate negative energy from your home. This stone’s high vibrations free  trapped energy that needs to be released – it’s particularly helpful when you have suffered the loss of a loved one or if you or a family member have chronic illness. Place shards of the stone in the corners of each room in your home.
  • Snowflake Obsidian centers the mind and body while stabilizing energetic influences in your inner and external environments. Placing Snowflake Obsidian around your home will soothe energetic imbalances and filter out negative energy before it arises and gets trapped in your space.
  • Hematite is a grounding stone that will protect you against psychic vampires and the negative emotions of other people in your space. Are you going mad from difficult in-laws or a troublesome guest? Wear a Hematite pendant to recenter yourself and bring peace and good karma into your home, even in the presence of difficult relatives.

Drain Dark Energy with Plants

Flowers have healing properties that will liven up a dark space and boost your spirit. These tiny powerhouses of energy pack a strong punch in combatting negativity – plants are strong enough to filter out harmful influences without withering. Start a garden in your windowsill, or place a few potted plants around different rooms of your house. Draw open the curtains to feed your plants and bring warmth and light into your home.

STEPHANIE LUCAS: “4 Fast Ways to Banish Negative Energies and Shield your Spaces”

negative energies

Moving into a new home or office space can be a stressful, yet joyful time – so, you want to get off to a solid footing and be sure that you’re not channeling into someone else’s old energies as you move in. Perhaps you’ve been in your space for awhile and are ready to cleanse the past from your space. If you’re looking for a few ways to clear negative energies and protect your area from psychic invaders, here are a few ideas.

1. Burning and Smudging with Sage: Negative Energy Cleansing

If you’re not familiar with this process, take a peek at this video, Burning Sage to Cleanse Negative Energies. While I’m not the expert Alexa is, I’d suggest smudging with sage before moving anything into your new space to promote good vibes during the move in and renovation process. However, even your possessions – as forms of energy – can carry negativity, so burning sage after moving in can’t hurt.

2. Surreptitious Shielding: Placing Affirmations on Walls

A good friend of mine just bought her first home, and being one who lives in gratitude, she had the clever idea of writing affirmations on the walls before tackling repainting with stimulating, soothing, and healing colors. Sealing the affirmations behind paint ensures they are always there in the shadows… resonating good vibes, protecting, and manifesting desires for her fresh start. It’s certainly a clever, fun way to ‘break in’ a new space with good intentions.

Of course, your chosen affirmations can be any proclamations that you may aspire for, including single words or phrases like ‘Peace, Love & Joy,” “We are One,” etc. Here are two favorite affirmations from Rich Work’s ‘Proclamations of the Soul.’


Affirmation for Clearing Entities/Negative Energies

From the Divine Love that flows through my Being: Whatever is in my home that is impeding the flow of positive energy, Whether here with or without my permission, I command in the name of the Creator and from the Divine Love That flows through my Being in love and Peace, That it now go to the nucleus of its being in Peace So be it!


Prosperity Affirmation

From the Divine Love that flows through my Being:
I call forth my abundance and prosperity
In all forms that will bring me happiness and joy.
So be it!


3. Protection Stones and Crystal Grids

Using protection stones and crystals to fend of negative energies is extremely important for those who are highly empathic people and especially for those living or working in connected structures such as condos, strip centers, or hi-rises. Typically, placing aligned crystals or stones in each corner of a space will offer shielding; however in the case of common walls you may want to create additional protections such as crystal grids.

Clear quartz is the most commonly used stone to facilitate the energy transfer between stones and minerals within a grid. It is this energy that connects transfer that increases the focusing abilities of the crystal grids points. There are no restrictions on gridding’s purposes or intentions; however, alignment of the stone pattern is the key to maximizing their efficacy in addition to choosing the right stones. Learn more about crystal grids and explore Popular Crystal Gridding Templates here.

4. Create Sacred Spaces

A sacred space is simply an area you create and designate as ‘sacred’ to you. It may be a small space with a few items of importance to you or a large, private space with an ‘altar’ laden with dozens of goodies you hold dear. My sacred space includes shells, stones, crystals, musical instruments, candles, sand, pictures, posters, and a special pillow to name a few items. Consider this your little ‘happy zone’ where you come to rebalance and center…an area that you keep off limits to others, which ensures it stays clear of negative energies.

Because when it boils down to it, you can cleanse your home or office in a dozen ways, but if your mind, body, and spirit aren’t clear of negative energies, to what end does it serve to protect beyond that?
