In this blog post, we will explore various techniques and practices that you as a mom can use to clear and uplift the energy in your home. 🏡 AND, not only will it uplift the energy in your home, but these protocols can also enhance the well-being of both yourself and your loved ones, AKA the kids 😉. #momwin 🙌 #yourwelcome
Here are six simple techniques to try...
1. Smudging and Clearing with Sage
One of the most well-known energy clearing practices is smudging, 💨 which involves burning dried sage bundles (see below how-to). Sage emits a fragrant smoke that is believed to cleanse negative energy and promote positivity. 😊
The smoke generated during smudging is believed to attach to and lift away 🌬️ negative energy, emotions, and unwanted influences. As the smoke moves through a space, it is thought to carry away stagnant or heavy energies, purifying ✨ the environment and making room for positive energy to flow. 🔁
HOW TO DO IT: PERFORMING A SMUDGING RITUAL
1. Open windows 🪟 and doors 🚪 to allow fresh air to circulate, 🔁
2. Light the sage bundle 🔥, and then carefully extinguish the flame to let it smolder.
3. Using a feather 🪶or your hand, waft the smoke throughout each room, paying special attention to corners, doorways, and windows.
4. As the smoke dissipates, visualize ☺️negative energy being released, making space for positive vibrations. ✨ Remember to express gratitude for the cleansing process.
Smudging can be done regularly or whenever you feel the need to refresh the energy in your home.
NOTE: While sage is commonly associated with smudging, different cultures use a variety of sacred herbs for the practice. 🌿 In addition to white sage, other commonly used smudging herbs include: cedar, sweetgrass, lavender, palo santo, and mugwort. Each herb carries its own unique energy and properties, adding depth and diversity to the smudging experience.
I personally love white sage and palo santo. My cats love these two as well! Do you have a favorite? If so be sure to let me know in the comment section. 👇
2. Crystal Energy Cleansing
Crystals have long been revered for their energetic properties, ✨ and they can be powerful tools for clearing and balancing energy. ⚖️ Some crystals, such as clear quartz, amethyst, and selenite, are particularly effective for cleansing purposes.
Choosing crystals for energy clearing is a personal and intuitive process. Different crystals resonate with individuals in unique ways, and what works for one person may not work for another. Trusting your intuition and selecting crystals that you feel drawn to 🥰 can enhance your connection ✨ with them and the effectiveness of your energy clearing practices.
👦👧 Crystals are also a fun way to involve your kids in this process. My boys love picking out their own crystals and finding fun places around our home for them. ❤️
Place these crystals strategically around your home, 🏡 focusing on areas where negative energy tends to accumulate. You can also hold a crystal in your hand while setting an intention to clear and uplift the energy in your space. Visualize the crystal absorbing negativity and emitting positive energy in return. ✨
NOTE: Crystals can absorb and hold onto energetic imbalances or negativity over time. To maintain their effectiveness, it's important to regularly cleanse and recharge them. Regularly cleanse your crystals by rinsing them under running water. 💧 Please note that some crystals should not get wet, so be sure to do a little research if you choose this cleansing method. Another way to easily cleanse and recharge your crystals is to leave them in the moonlight (esp. on a full moon). 🌕
3. Salt Cleansing and Purification
Salt is a natural purifier that has been used for centuries 🧂 to cleanse and protect spaces from negative energy. It has long been considered a sacred and protective substance in many cultures, being used in rituals, ceremonies, and spiritual practices to ward off negative energy and create a sense of purity. Its crystalline structure ❄️ and mineral composition are believed to have inherent energetic properties that aid in energy clearing and cleansing.
Salt is known for its ability to absorb and neutralize negative energy. Just as salt is commonly used to preserve and purify food, it can also be used to preserve and purify energetic spaces. ✨
HOW TO DO IT: CREATE A SALTWATER SOLUTION 🍶
1. Dissolve sea salt or Himalayan salt in water 💧 and transfer it to a spray bottle.
2. Spritz the saltwater in every room, particularly around windows 🪟, doors, 🚪and corners.
3. As you do so, visualize ☺️ the saltwater neutralizing and dispelling any negative energy present.
NOTE: Be sure to consider the practical aspects of using salt, such as avoiding damage to certain surfaces or materials that may be sensitive to moisture. 😉
You can also place small bowls of salt 🍚 in the corners of rooms to absorb negative energy over time.
Remember to discard the saltwater outside of your home to complete the cleansing process.
4. Sound Healing Techniques
Sound 🎶 has a profound impact on energy vibrations, 🌀 making sound healing techniques a valuable tool for energy clearing. Use tools such as singing bowls, bells, chimes, or even your own voice to create resonant sounds in your home. 🏡
This method is based on the principle that everything in the universe, including our bodies and surroundings, is made up of energy vibrating at specific frequencies. 🔊 When we are exposed to certain sounds or vibrations, our own energetic frequencies can be influenced and harmonized. ❤️
Sound healing for energy clearing utilizes specific frequencies and vibrations to help shift and balance the energetic state of a person or space.
HOW TO DO IT: SOUND HEALING
1. Set Your Intention: Before you begin, take a moment to set a clear intention for the energy clearing process. ☺️ Visualize the room being filled with positive, uplifting energy ✨ and imagine any stagnant or negative energy being released and transformed.
2. Select Your Sound Healing Tools: Choose the sound healing tools that resonate with you. This can include instruments such as singing bowls, 🎶 bells, 🔔 chimes, rattles, drums, 🪘or even your own voice. 🎤 Experiment with different instruments and see which ones feel most aligned with your intention and the energy of the room.
3. Create a Calm Environment: Prepare the room by creating a calm and comfortable environment. 😌 Dim the lights, eliminate distractions, and create a space where you can focus on the sound healing process without interruption.
4. Begin the Sound Healing Session: Start by taking a few deep breaths to center yourself. 🧘♀️ Then, begin producing sounds with your chosen instrument. You can strike the singing bowl, ring the bell, or play the instrument in a way that produces resonant and soothing tones. Allow the sound vibrations to fill the room and penetrate its energy.
5. Move through the Room: As you play the instrument, 🪕 slowly and intentionally move through the room. Pay attention to the corners, doorways 🚪, windows 🪟, and areas where energy tends to accumulate. Allow the sound vibrations to permeate the space and dislodge any stagnant or negative energy. Trust your intuition and let the instrument guide you to areas that require more attention.
6. Focus on Intention and Visualization: While performing the sound healing, hold your intention in mind ☺️ and visualize the energy of the room shifting and becoming lighter and more harmonious. Imagine the sound vibrations breaking up and dissipating any energetic blockages or imbalances. ✨
7. Trust the Process: Continue playing the instrument 📯 and moving through the room until you feel a sense of completion or until the energy feels more balanced and clear. Trust your intuition and follow your own sense of when the process is finished.
Remember that sound healing is a personal and intuitive practice, and there is no right or wrong way to do it. Explore different techniques, experiment with different instruments, 🎼 and trust your own experience and connection ✨ with the energy of the room.
Sound healing can also be complemented with soothing music or chanting, promoting relaxation and positive energy flow. This is also a method that you can involve the kids in easily. 👧👦 Just remember to hold the intention that it will be a lighter, more chaotic cleansing with the kiddos 😂.
5. Intention Setting and Visualization
Setting clear intentions ✨ and utilizing visualization techniques ☺️ can significantly impact the energy in your home. 🏡 These methods are potent tools for working with the Law of Attraction.
By visualizing and setting clear intentions for the energy we want to cultivate in our space, we are actively attracting and manifesting those energies. ✨ When we consistently focus on positive intentions, we align our energetic frequency with what we desire, attracting similar vibrations into our lives. This process can enhance energy clearing by creating a magnetic field of positive energy and repelling negativity.
HOW TO DO IT: SETTING INTENTIONS FOR YOUR HOME
1. Begin by identifying what energy you wish to cultivate, such as love, harmony, peace, or joy. 🕊️
2. Take a moment to visualize your home filled with this desired energy, seeing it as a sanctuary of positivity and well-being. 🏡✨
You can enhance the effectiveness of this practice by creating visual representations of your intentions, such as vision boards or affirmations placed strategically throughout your home. Regularly revisit your intentions and visualizations, reinforcing the energy you want to attract and maintain.
I have made vision boards and vibration boards now for many years. It is something that could easily be done with your kiddos. Check out this article on how to make a vision board. Also starting your kids off at a young age with affirmations ✨ and gratitude work 🙏 can be such a blessing. We personally love to use these affirmation cards in our practice to start off our homeschool days. (Use code AMANDA-D for a discount)
PS. I wrote an entire blog on the power of gratitude work 🙏 , check it out HERE If that is something you are also interested in.
NOTE: while visualization and intention setting can be effective in energy clearing, they are most impactful when coupled with action and a holistic approach to well-being. Combining these practices with other energy clearing techniques, such as smudging or crystal work, can enhance their overall effectiveness. ✨
6. Essential Oils
Essential oils have been used for centuries in aromatherapy for their therapeutic properties. When inhaled, 👃 the aromatic molecules of essential oils can directly impact the limbic system, which is responsible for emotions and memories. 🥰 This can help shift and uplift the energetic state, promoting a sense of calm, balance, and well-being. 🧘♀️
This is particularly helpful as a mom, often times our homes are so filled with energy and moments of chaos. 🤪 I know that I personally am grateful to have my oils to help set the tone in our home, and at the same time make it smell amazing! 😊
Oils can be powerful allies in your energy clearing protocols. ✨ Diffusing them or using them in sprays or room mists can help refresh and uplift the energy in a space.
