House Cleansing: Removing Negative Energy

Author: Nita
Posted: December 28th. 2008
Times Viewed: 9,686

House Cleansings and Blessings are important when removing Negative energies and Entities from a home or place where a home will be built. As mentioned in my article on Ghosts they stay with the property. They are not the problem as much as other energies such as places where magic has been done or areas have been cursed because of the people or negative events that happened there.

The way to resolve this is a House Cleansing. It means to clear the area of the house room by room. Area cleansing is similar but has extra methods to be used when cleansing property where you will build a house.

Plan your ritual. Everyone should use the deity and deities they believe in and worship. It works the best for any ceremony. Most of the Exorcisms on the web are from different religions. Use the most appropriate names of what you worship and believe in so that it will be your type of energy.

Next plan the herbs, and oils you will use. All of these herbs can be used separately or combined. I personally like rosemary, dragon’s blood, cinnamon, clove, cedar, sandalwood, myrrh, and cypress oils. They are used to seal the doorways and windows so the room is cleansed and can not have negativity enter into it. I have developed my own exorcism oil for sealing houses.

Herbs for a house cleansing that I prefer are rosemary, mistletoe, cloves, mint, and fenugreek seeds. The herbs should be brewed into a tea and used to sprinkle the room. Another way is to mop all the floors and then go over them a second time with an herbal wash of the tea. A small amount of salt should also be blessed and added to the teas. You should just bless a pound of salt as it will be used later, and can always be used in the teas. Carpets can be misted by using a spray bottle.

The important thing for the oils, salt, and herbs is to say the following prayer over them.
(Deity or deities) Bless and make sacred these herbs and oils. May all negativity be removed, all sorrow, misery, poverty, ghosts, demons, spirits and harmful energies of all types and shapes. May the (deities) be able to remove all energies of negativity and evil through out all time and space, all dimensions, all realities, whether they are known or unknown by the person doing this ceremony. I ask (deity or deities) for their blessings and energies on these herbs to nullify, destroy, and remove all negativity and release all spirits to their realms of existence and the light. So Be It

Now that the herbs and oils are blessed you draw the symbols of protection. I suggest the glyphs from my Problem Solvers Alphabet book but they can be the cross, pentacle, runic alphabet, Blessed Angel and Saint Medals, or anything else the person believes in that will seal a doorway and can be made small to use on windowsills.

I like to draw the symbols on the tops and bottoms of the windows very small with indelible ink. They can also be drawn with the tea or the oil so they do not mark anything in a rental property. I also like to do all four sides of a doorway after I am done with a room. Be sure to draw protective symbols upon the back and front of all mirrors.

You have everything but one doorway sealed. You stand facing the door and say-

I banish from this room in the name of (deity or deities) all negative forces that have caused upset, discord, trauma and evil in my life. May all their energies that cause misery, poverty, depression, fear, astral invasion, dream invasion, physical, mental and spiritual distress and illness be banished. May all access points, gateways and manifestations be banished and closed through out all space, time, dimensions, realities, and all planes whether known or unknown to me that are used to create negativity in my home. May they be banished until the earth vanishes, mankind ceases to exist and even then not be able to manifest for five thousand years after the earth is destroyed. May they be banished until the rivers run with chocolate milk, and the sun turns to pistachio Ice Cream. May the power of (deity and deities) make this so!

You spin in a circle including the entire room. You then draw sacred symbols on the bottom, top and sides of the doorway. You can include the symbol in oil or the tea on the door itself. You put salt across the doorway at the bottom and go on to the next room.

Banishings and cleansings work best when there are impossible conditions for any negative force or entity to meet to come back. How possible is it to find your home if the earth is destroyed? How possible do you feel it is for Chocolate milk to fill the rivers and the sun to become Ice Cream? This works well and is more efficient than just telling them to leave as they have to fulfill conditions before they can come back which are backed up by a deity.

You seal off each room except for one where there is an outside door. You leave it until last and do the same ritual for each room. You also seal each doorway so it is unable to go back into any other part of the house. You do your ceremony in the last room and force it out the doorway. You seal the doorway with salt. You do the sacred symbols and say the phrases. Also do any porches or balconies as they will stay on them until they are driven off of them.

You have now cleansed your house. Leave the salt at the doorways for about a week if at all possible then vacuum it all up. The least amount of time is 24 hours for the salt to be left at the doorways. The next thing to do is a House blessing.

Area cleansing is done by summoning a deity for each direction. You do the same banishing except you ask the deities to speak with the angel of the land. You remove all past influences, conditions, and things done on the land. You ask the deities and angel of the land to bless your home and your life there with Joy, happiness, release from worry, sorrow, grief and all negativity, with Good Health, Abundance and prosperity abounding. You thank them and put a stone in each corner of the lot and one in the middle with their symbols drawn upon them.

Once the home is built a cleansing and blessing should be done before you move into the home. You can also draw symbols on the wood before it is enclosed where you know your home will be safe and harmonious for you in every way.
