It’s that time of year to open up the windows and clear your home of the dust and cobwebs that have accumulated over the winter months. Take advantage of this time to also clean your house of any negative energy that may have accumulated. Sageing is a wonderful step in this direction, however, that will only clean out the old and not help deter it from accumulating. After you’ve cleaned and saged try this simple door cleansing charm to help continually lift and cleanse the energy in your home.
What you will need
1 tsp of fresh lemon juice or 3 drops of lemon essential oil if lemons are not accessible in your area.
2 drops of lavender oil.
A white cloth.
A clean bowl.
What to do
Squeeze your lemon juice into the bowl then add hot water, and lavender. Once the mixture has cooled enough not to burn you combine them by stirring them in a clockwise direction. Take your cloth and wipe your door starting in the center and working your way out also in a clockwise movement. While you are cleansing the door say aloud, or in your head: “Happiness and calm be welcome inside. May peace and love here always reside.”
After you have finished cleansing the door dispose of the dirty water outdoors away from any entrances to your home. Then wash your cloth out well under running water. Hang it to dry, preferably overnight in the moonlight, and you can then store it and use it again for future cleansings. If you have more than one entrance to your home you should cleanse each of them individually. Do not transfer the water from one door to the next. For an extra level of protection, you can also line your thresholds with salt after you have finished cleansing them.
