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.
