Whether you’re starting your first year in a college dorm, moving into your own place or living with a companion or roommate, it’s essential to make sure your home is filled with nothing but positive vibes. Home is where the heart is and if your household is filled with negative energy, it will affect how well you function in every aspect of your life.
If you happen to find yourself upset more than usual, easily irritable and constantly quarreling with your roommate, you may have some bad juju in your home that needs to be cleaned out. By knowing when and how to perform a cleansing, you’ll find out how much better your life will be because of it.
When Should You Cleanse Your Home
A cluttered home results in a cluttered mind and this can affect us both spiritually and physically. So, aside from cleaning your house when there is a mess, you should also cleanse your house if you find yourself in these following situations:
- After you physically clean your house
- After a big argument
- Spring cleaning
- When you move into a new place
- When a companion or roommate moves out
- After a sickness or death
- After a break-up or divorce
- Anytime you desire clean energy for a new chapter in your life
Now that you’ve determined under which circumstances you should cleanse your home, here are a few steps and tips to consider when expelling your home from bad vibes.
How to Cleanse Your Home
Set an Intention
Have you ever had a moment where you really want and think hard about something that ends up coming true? That’s because you set an intention. You should do the same thing when it comes to cleansing your home. What you speak into the universe really has the ability to manifest itself.
When you take the time out to meditate and reflect on your intentions on a peaceful home, you will have what you desire.
Light an Incense
Incenses are perfect for relieving bad energy. They can also promote better sleep, reduce stress and enhance better focus and concentration. Burn a Palo Santo incense, sandalwood incense or dried sage to help cleanse the energy in your home.
Add a Touch of Greenery
Houseplants are an amazing natural filler for negative energy. Houseplants can also help cleanse the environment you live in by expelling toxins from the air. Make sure you have at least one in every room that you spend time in.
Sprinkle a Dash of Pink Himalayan Salt
Pink Himalayan salt is the purest form of salt there is. It helps to remove toxic energy and claim negative salt ions in the atmosphere. You can sprinkle salt on the carpet before vacuuming or add a beautiful Himalayan salt lamp to your home.
Crystals have been used for their healing capabilities for thousands of years, dating back to the time of the ancient Sumerians of Mesopotamia. Crystals like quartz and black tourmaline are perfect for clearing negative energy, and different crystals serve different purposes.

After You’ve Cleansed Your Home
It’s essential to understand that while cleansing your home can be extremely helpful, you have to consider that your behavior has more to do with your environment than anything else. You must take responsibility for your own feelings, thoughts and beliefs.
So, try to foster a more positive way of thinking and never let a situation or a person’s actions cause you to react in a negative manner. Keep that same positive energy because cleansing your environment is about cleansing your spirit as well.
