Home Energy Clearing

How can we clear bad energy out of a house?

Our home should be your safe haven — the place where you feel relaxed, happy, and at peace. But when bad energy is lingering around, your home can quickly become the complete opposite — a place of hostility and negativity. And when you have this negative energy in your home, it can affect every other aspect of your life. That’s why house cleansing can be an important part in your personal well-being. 

If you’ve just moved into a new space, you should cleanse your home of any negative energies that might still be there from the previous owners. Or, if you’ve just gone through a breakup, had a big life transition, or you’re just in a funk — clearing bad energy from your home can help.

Many tools can be used to clear / cleanse a house and fill it with positive energy. Let’s focus on a very ancient way I love: smudging.

What is the purpose of smudging? The smoke created by burning sacred herbs is thought to purify the body and soul, and bring clarity to the mind. In this way, smudging is also used to cleanse places said to hold negative energy.

First Nation People used the abalone shell for smudging during a purification session. They burn sage, juniper, sweetgrass and cedar as incense to purify the air in a person, place or object.

Traditionally, Amerindian burned incense in a shell with the help of a feather. The shell contains holes that favor ventilation inside the shell. It is also an object that is very resistant to heat.

During a fumigation, we have the presence of the 4 elements of nature during this practice. The element of fire is represented by the match that ignites the incense. The smoke that emanates from the burning of incense is the representation of the element of air. The soil is present thanks to sage, sweetgrass, juniper and cedar, all of which come from the soil. Water is represented by the abalone shell which is the container in which we will place the incense to burn.
