It clears out negativity left by negative ppl, or even by your own family (arguments, etc). Leaves a fresh peaceful feeling in the house. Then you can fill it with love and incense and lots of pagan music =)

It's never too late to do what you should have done!

It would probably depend on what you consider evil.

Does this work if there is evil in the house?

every time we move into a new place we do a house cleansing and blessing. i don't know how old your kids are but if they are school age prolly old enough to help.

anyway, what we do is:
physically clean the house first, at least straighten it up and clean the floor;

then start at your front door, go through every room of the house. in my house, one person carries lighted incense, one person carries salted water, i carry the smudge because they tend to shed embers.

Chant as you go through every room, and go around all doors and windows. (say something like I cleanse this room with the power of earth air fire and water, or may this door be sealed against all negativity, may only good enter here, etc). oh, the salt water is sprinkled about as you go, the incense smoke is waved around.

Then when you are done, go back to the front door, this time RUN (not walk) through the house with noisemakers, bells, even pans with spoons to bang on them. YELL "I banish you" all though the house. The noise really clears the air and stirs up the chi in your house.

After you are all done, set up candles and incense on your table, say a prayer of thanksgiving and eat something. You can all hold hands and name something you want to bring to your "new" home, listening to each other better, or being there for each other, or whatever you feel inspired to bring.

I've done this ritual with my family many times and it always purifies and blesses our house, and brings us peace. Plus, kids LOVE it! Hope it helps you too.

also, we do a variation of this for new moons (banishing moons...)

I did my house blessing last week, and things feel calmer. Before there was almost a hectic-feeling in the air, and it's calmed down a good bit. So much more relaxing. Now that I can think it's time to get organized. :)

House blessings can be done whenever you feel that your house needs it. I was just trying to let you know that you can do it more often if you want. I would smudge my house and then do a blessings to remove all negative energy left behind by previous occupants.

Thanks for sharing Jewitch. I don't know that a house blessing could be done every season, or even every month. Like I said, I'd never done one before.

Asilla, thanks for your idea as well. This is my first move as well as first house, and I may get a new broom.

Thankx for sharing Jewitch! Great info. The last two places I've lived have smudged, it really made a difference from the previous places.

Alicerabbits,many congrats on your first new home! Am very excited/happy for you!(I always get a new broom when I move to a different house too,actually I have one hanging over my front door...should take a pic and post on page)

Lainers0323, am sending blessings and good wishes for you and your family on your new life.
I raised three boys by myself because of similar circumstances, memories of those times are some of the best of my life. My boys ages are three yrs between oldest to middle and two between youngest to middle(five oldest to youngest).

The reason for smudging rids the house of negative energy. So for a new home you don't know who has been in it before you and what energy they left behind or after a divorce you have negative energy that was put out during the divorce. So this is a must.

Here are a house blessings, this can also be used on an apartment, that I have used in the past and have had good results with. I usually bless my house at the beginning of each new season or you can do a blessing on your house at least once a month just to cleanse out negativity.

The area that you live in is also important. I have lived in places where the energy of the area is more of a problem than the homes energies. A really nice house can be in a negative area where much crime, trauma or past history has affected the area it sits in so it is negative. A house cleansing and blessing makes it so the house is really yours and can be a happy loving home for you.

The first thing to do is to check out the energies of the area. I then suggest surrounding the house with mint, marjoram, angelica, and rose petals or rose oil sprinkled on the herbs. It will prevent the negativity from entering your space. It may also be done around a house with just sprinkling stuff from your pocket. It will protect your property also.

A prayer to be said over these herbs are -

Bless this place, this property, and all who live in it. No negativity, evil, thieves, violence, maliciousness, misery and upset may exist here. May the joy, happiness, love, kindness, abundance and prosperity of (deity or deities) exist here. May this be a place of love, and harmony. So be it!

You have to bless the apartment or home itself next. I suggest making an herbal tea and adding oil to it. Pick a good scent with a flower or herb for the things you want to exist in your home. Pick an incense smell that also agrees with the things you want to exist in your home. Pick music to play that you enjoy and uplifts you to go with what you are doing in your blessing.

Next light the incense and get ready to mist the house. Go into each room and mist it plus wave the incense around so the smoke goes around the room. Say the following -

Bless this home and all who live in it. Bless this with the might and power of (deity or deities) and bring their loving energies into this house. May love, kindness, prosperity, joy and happiness exist here. May an abundance of prosperity, relaxation, harmony and happiness come into being here. May all who live here abide in love and harmony. In the name of (deity or deities) so be it!

Hang pictures of the influences you want in the house. Draw the symbols of your deity upon the back of them and bless them as you hang them on the walls. Make your home your own with the love and harmony that should be existent in every home. Do a blessing every time the energies do not feel correct or beneficial to you.

Lainers--Thanks for the congrats. I wish you luck in yout situation. I am really excited about this house. :) And like Jewitch said, smudging with sage is a must to clear the air.

Jewitch--I agree on the smudging with sage. It just seemed a little too basic. I'm hoping to stay here for a good while. :) Even a basic outline would be appreciated.

actually I'd like some help with a similar situation. My husband and I just split up. He ended up leaving so that my three sons could stay in the same schools. I need to both cleansing and blessing ideas. No physical abuse, but years of mental and verbal abuse to clear.

So I got a new house, and was thinking of doing a house blessing. While I've done other rituals, I've never done a house blessing before. I did some research and saw suggestions of sage, for cleansing. It's my first house and I'd like it to be special, but I'm drawing a blank.I was wondering if anyone had ideas?
