The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Feeding the Hungary Ghost

Rice is a simple form of spiritual cleansing used in a similar way to sea salt. This is what I call a “psychic vacuum” because it draws out, and absorbs negative energies. Sometimes people will combine (white) rice and sea salt for spiritual cleansing rituals, especially in Feng Shui traditions.

The use of rice for spiritual cleansing is rooted in the Ghost Culture of China, and Japan.

There is an old Buddhist belief that there are hungry ghost roaming the earth seeking food, and liberation from pain. These ghost are the shadows of the dead who in life were greedy, evil and unsavory. Upon their death they are cursed with very large stomachs that are never full, and tiny mouths only big enough for one grain of rice to pass through at a time.

The Chinese Ghost Festival is an annual celebration in honor of the dead. According to, ChinaCulture.org, “The Chinese Ghost Festival is also called “Half July” (Lunar). It is a popular occasion celebrated throughout China on the 15th day of the seventh lunar month”. This is the time of year when these hungry ghost roam freely looking for sustenance. People honor them with offerings of Rice to keep them at bay, and stop them from causing misfortune.

Feeding the Hungary Ghost is an ancient ritual for appeasing the roaming spirits of the land, and in-turn protecting the home, and those within from their negativity. This is an offering for the ancestors, and a protective barrier for the home.

To perform the ritual of Feeding the Hungary Ghost gather a bowl of white rice. Say a prayer of thanks for those who have passed on, over the bowl. Then with the bowl of rice, walk the parameter of your home, laying a circle of rice around the foundation. A small amount of rice will do!

Halloween is the traditional time to honor the dead, and our ancestors. Perform the ritual of Feeding the Hungary Ghost during Halloween to observe this practice. This will keep your home safe from negative energy, as the veil between worlds grows thinner. You can even leave a bowl of rice by the front door, or on grave stones to honor the dead.

Here are a few more ways to use Rice for Spiritual Cleansing:

  • Place a bowl of rice, and sea salt in each window of your home. This will serve as a protective barrier absorbing and disempowering negative energy that comes in your home… including ghost, and stray entities.
  • Fill a bowl, or plate with rice (any kind will do). Place crystals, jewelry, Tarot decks, and other objects on the rice to absorb negative energy, and thoroughly cleanse them. Discard after two or 3 uses.
  • Place uncooked rice in a muslin sachet, and tie tightly shut. Place this in your bath water, along with some lemongrass essential oil. Soak in the tub for 15-20 minutes. Do not wash with soap, or any body products this is strictly for spiritual cleansing. Dispose after each bath.
  • Make a circle of salt around the base of any object, or place to create a protective barrier… as described above in the ritual of the Hungary Ghost.
  • Infuse white rice with camphor essential oil by placing a few drops on uncooked rice, and tossing it about to coat each grain. Then place handfuls of the rice in sachets, or bowls around the home as a protective amulet. You can even leave them in the car, or on your person.

Happy Halloween!

How to Distinguish Between Ghost, Spirits, and Other Types of Hauntings

This is the time of year when people notice invisible things tugging at their psyche. Because the boundary between plains has become thinner it makes it easier for things to be detected, and to interact with them. This brings up questions about ghost, haunting and spirit activity.

People tend to use the word spirit and ghost interchangeable, though they really aren’t the same thing. They are similar… both being disembodied, but they exist in very different places.

Ghosts:

A ghost is the spirit of a person who has passed on, but hasn’t moved on. For some reason they are “stuck” in the lower levels. Usually stemming from greed, guilt, pain, or a sudden death. Something has made them cling to the physical world, and not accept that they are meant to move on into the healing light of the Divine.

The presence of a ghost is actually sad to experience because they basically exist in a twilight space. We perceive them as shadows, kind of looming, creepy and intangible. They actually experience us in much the same way, perceiving us as strangers in their “world”.

Because a ghost is fixated on something, they tend to be very one-dimensional which comes across as angry, aloof or uninterested. But really they are just confused and trying to figure out what they are doing there. Though some ghost can become more aware of their surroundings. A ghost who has become aware of their own “power” become extremely attached, and combative.

Spirits: 

A spirit on the other hand is someone who has passed, crossed the great dived, and now lives peacefully in the upper layers… to put it simply they are in Heaven. These beings are completely aware of who they are, where they have come from, and where they are currently. When they passed, they accepted the transition and walked peacefully through the tunnel to the Other Side.

When a person transitions to the Other Side, and becomes a “spirit” they have complete awareness. Moving freely between levels, they are not stuck, bound or attached… rather they are able to communicate with us, visit us, and send us healing and messages. And even give us proof of their survival and life after death.

After a loved one has transitioned to the Other Side, they will usually visit you in one way or another, to let you know they have made it safely. This will happen in a variety of ways. Either through dreams, or signs, or even coincidences.

Ghost and Spirits always bring up questions about Haunting. Everyone has heard of a haunted house or building in their town, or encounter what they thought to be a ghost at some point. Even for the complete non-believers the thought has crossed their mind! The truth is… most Hauntings are not a Ghost, or a Spirit.

The average Haunting is an Imprint. An imprint is the residual energy left over from a traumatic event that took place within a space, or the psychic impression left behind from high energy, or route people.

For example: if a person lived in a house for 30 years, and always practiced singing in the living room, you may experience some phantom singing in that same space. There is no ghost haunting the space, it is just the strong psychic impression left behind from the route… the event is basically on repeat.

Most hauntings tend to be this kind of energetic loop that continues to happen. The energy that is left behind is a cycle that continuously plays through, but it does NOT interact with people. If you are experiencing an imprint it will not interact with you. Interaction is a sign of a ghost.

Though some imprints can become so elaborate, and dramatic that it becomes a whole light show of events. Careful investigation can help to clarify the situation. This is where spiritual cleansing becomes so important in a space.

In some cases you will actually experience something that is neither a Ghost, Spirit, or an Imprint. Sometimes you will encounter something that seems to be interactive, evolving and intelligent called, Astral Thought Forms.

Astral Thought Forms are thought forms with such a highly charged energy that they take on a type of consciousness. They can interact like a ghost giving you different messages, and indicators that they are there. However, they have never been alive, nor have they ever died. They are nothing more than extremely concentrated thought form energy that has taken on a life of its own.

You can address them in the same way you would address a ghost!

Astral Thought Forms are usually the result of an overactive imagination, a person who experiences mental/emotional imbalances, children and young adults, and lower level experiences (drug abuse, violence, etc.).

Have you had any experiences with any unknown force such as a Ghost, Spirit, or Haunting?

4 Signs of Spirit Activity

The whole month of October fills me with magic! It awakens some ancient feelings that stir deep within. There is a feeling that pulls me back to center. As the fall settles in we begin to journey inward, reflecting on the seasons passed. Actually, October is the traditional time of year when the veil between the worlds grows thinner. 

When this happens the energetic vibrations begin to shift and things become aligned, making it easier for different spiritual/psychic phenomena to be more detectable. You might find yourself sensing a new presence, or encountering an invisible guest. Or maybe some unexplained events have taken place.

Here are a few ways to detect spiritual activity:

  1. You have an unsettling feeling that some is around you, behind you, watching, or following you. This is often a loved one visiting you from the Other Side, or some other type of spirit whom you aren’t typically aware of. In essence, they are able to become closer to you. Pay attention. The more open you are, the easier it is for them to make contact!
  2. Unusually vivid dreams. Our dreams can be doorways into our inner world, but also the Astral world. You may find yourself slipping into the ambiguous boundaries of the Astral during sleep because the veil is thinner. This can be a very liberating experience. Everyone astrally projects, but during this time of year it can be more noticeable. Where have you been going? What do you see?
  3. Physical changes in your surroundings. When spirits are closer to our realm they tend to manipulate the energy of the area. You may notice lights that flicker, electronics that act up, changes in the temperature, unexplained sounds, and knocking. You may also experience things moving on their own… such as objects, or even doors. Clearly someone wants your attention.
  4. If you notice something 3 x or more, then there may be a message there for you. Especially if it is something that doesn’t typically cross your mind, or stand out. This can be a sign from a loved one or guide.

These are just a few things you might notice. They are not unique to this time of year, just more common.

Have you had any strange, spooky… October activity?

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Florida Water

Florida Water is a traditional tool for spiritual cleansing, blessing and protection. It began as common toilette water in the 19th century, and grew in popularity by spiritual workers of all verities. The mixture is a combination of water, alcohol and essential oils. It has a strong citrus scent, with floral undertones and a slight earthy smell.

The fragrant botanicals are the source of the water’s power. They attract good fortune, and benevolent spirits to whomever, or wherever the water is used. Florida Water essentially raises the vibration of whatever it comes into contact with making it unsuitable for negativity and harm to thrive, and linger.

Florida Water can be used as a base for any energetic and magical application. It can be used for baths, floor washes, and for anointing. It is a powerful tool for spiritually cleansing your home after a difficult time, or when dealing with extremely negative entities. It can also be used to clear, and reprogram crystals, gems and jewelry.

Some practitioners even use Florida Water as a type of offering to their ancestors, spirits and other forms of Divinity. It is a wonderful tool for blessing a shrine, altar or sacred space. You can mist a room with it before a Reiki session, or an intuitive reading.

If you are an energy worker, or if you do any type of meditation/trace/hypnotism work this is a good protective measure to begin with. Apply Florida Water to the wrist, temples, base of the head and the feet. Or anoint the 7 major chakras/energy centers of the body.

Keeping bowls of Florida Water in your home will help to ward of negativity and keep a high vibration within the space. You can wash any new items you bring into the home, especially thrifted pieces. Florida Water will keep any attachments from linger with the pieces.

I’ve even found it to be beneficial for combating nightmares, or sleeplessness. Keep a small cup or bowl of Florida Water by the bedside. Or even better, under the bed. This will filter out negativity.

When you are feeling especially “off” or as if something is attached to you, rub yourself down with Florida Water. Wash your clothes, and bed linens in it. And spritz it around all rooms. This will untie energetic cords, and keep icky thoughts away.

The uses for Florida Water are endless. You can make it as simple or complex as you like. But whenever you are in need of a good jolt of energy… add a little of this to the mix!

Murry and Lanman’s Florida Water is the most common. You can find it easily online, and in many corner stores. Hispanic markets often carry it, as well as a few Chinese markets. This kind is relatively cheap. Though there are many handmade options out there as well.

Handmade Florida Water is one of the products I plan to offer in the near future!!

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Cleansing Floor Powder

Spiritually cleansing your home is a practical way to create positive change in your life. As you clear away unnecessary stray energy from your home, you release unintentional debris from your life. Because your home is a reflection of your inner world, and is directly connected to your spirit… it’s best to keep it fresh and vibrant.

Spiritual cleansing floor powders are much like store bought floor powders that you sprinkle on carpets, and then sweep up. You can make your own natural floor powders with an added magical kick! This is a simple technique that you can uses for your daily cleaning. It’s easy and adds an extra layer of freshness!

You will need to gather together two basic ingredients: Baking Soda, and Crushed Sea Salt. This will be the base of our powder. Both work wonders for clearing away negative and stagnant energy. We will add some botanicals to the base.

The following botanicals are wonderful for clearing away negative energy, and warding off unwanted vibrations:

Basil: Attracts positive energy, and benevolent spiritual influences. Freshens the Aura, and gives it a magnetic quality. Will clear away lower vibrating energies and entities.

Hyssop: One of the Holy plants for spiritual cleansing. It strips away negative energy and replaces it with good vibrations. It will bring environments into equilibrium, especially after highly charged emotional conflicts.

Mint: Infuses the aura with a subtle, happy vibration. Creates an atmosphere of peace, love and understanding. Wonderful to freshen the air, and release mental clutter. Not as aggressive as some botanicals.

Parsley: This is an herb of prosperity and abundance. This will wash away hardship and stagnation with money and business. Very good herb to use if you are feeling uninspired in your space and ready for a change. Works well when combined with other botanicals, or to “freshen” things up between major cleansings.

Rose: Ooh my favorite botanical to use for spiritual cleansing. It is light, gentle, and very very effective. It keeps the energy field strong, and vibrating at a high frequency. This keeps negative at bay because it essentially cannot be in the space.

Rosemary: Works wonders because of its astringent qualities. Great for clearing a space after major work has been done, or a crowed has left. This is another herb that works well to keep things fresh in between major cleansings. It can be combined with Mint, and Sage with good results. Also, this is a nice cleansing agent when preparing a space for spiritual contact.

Rue: Another one of the Holy botanicals. This is, along with Hyssop, one of the most powerful cleansing botanicals. Used to clear away negativity lingering from spiritual work, unwanted visitors and entities, and any other strange vibrations that you cannot shake. Works well to help bring things back into harmony. Sometimes this will clear away things you didn’t expect to lose!!

Sage: One of the most common, and effective spiritual cleansing botanicals. Regarded as sacred among Native Americans, and other shamanic cultures. It is a beautiful herb that enlightens the mind and spirit, and brings things into unison. It is has a way of moving things along without a fight!

Vervain: A wonderful herb that enhances the affects of other herbs. It also clears away psychic attacks and things pertaining to dreams.

Now, Gather together your base ingredients of Crushed Sea Salt, and Baking Soda. Then choose one or more of the botanicals listed above. All will be helpful; one may jump out at you. Trust your intuition.

In a large bowl mix together 1 cup of crushed sea salt, and 1 cup of Baking Soda. Add 1/2 – 1 cup of your chosen botanical to the mixture. If you decide to use more than one botanical do a ½ of each. Stir the mixture together well using a wooden spoon. Be sure to stir the mixture in a clockwise motion. I like to do this 7, 9, or 13 times.

I like to say a prayer over the mixture, or visualize the herbs and botanicals working together and forming a glowing light over the mixture. Use your creative visualization infuse divine light into the powder. Any power, or words of affirmation are suitable.

If you are unable to find powdered botanicals, you can also use essential oils. Either will be suitable. You can even use both! Essential oils will add a lot of fragrance to the mixture!

When you are finished carry the mixture from room to room, and sprinkle a handful around the floor. Especially let it settle in any messy areas where dust and dirt have collected (those are fertile breeding ground for negative energy!).

You can let the mixture sit on the carpet for 10-15 minutes. Then go through each room, sweeping, or vacuuming up the powder. As you clear it away, visualize all the negative and stagnant energy that has collected in your space being dissolved and swept away. Again, you can say a prayer, or affirmation of blessing.

Discard the dirt and powder in the trash, and remove the bag from your home immediately.

If you want to smudge with sage afterward you can. This will enhance the powders benefits. You can also light blessed candles to keep the energy flowing and fresh.

You should feel so fresh and so clean!!

Please, experiment with different herbs and botanicals. You may find one that really stands out to you over the others. Do this as often as you like. Once a week would be ideal.

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Smoky Quartz

Smoky QuartzStones and crystals are regarded as seeds of power. Carry them on your person, or keep them in your home to add their unique vibration to the aura of whatever they interact with. They carry specific spiritual/energetic vibrations that can be used by anyone for a number of reasons.

Smoky Quartz is one of my favorite stones for spiritual protection. Smoky Quartz is translucent rock crystal that comes in varying shades of deep, tinted browns, and blacks. Just like other types of Quartz, it is found in points, clusters and tumbled.

Its presence is very grounding and often makes you feel calm, centered and focused. Because it’s energy is smooth, warm and enveloping it is easy for most people to befriend, and make a deep connection. I consider it an essential crystal to have in your tool kit! 

For centuries it has been regarded as a crystal of protection. It wards off negativity and harm, and adds a durable shield around a person’s aura. By keeping a piece of Smoky Quartz in your pocket, in a pouch, or pendent you will fortify your energy field and keep icky things at bay. This is ideal for extremely crowded settings, such as social events, work offices, or any other populated location.

Holding a crystal in your hand will allow you to neutralize any crazy chaotic energies that are floating around in your system, and help you to find equilibrium. It seems to work wonders for anxiety, and stomach issues. You can use Smoky Quartz for the sacral chakra, which is our energetic processing center, or where “gut feelings” occur!

Keeping a piece of Smoky Quartz in your home will act as a protective ward. This will keep stray energy, astral sludge, and other unwanted spiritual visitors from hanging around your home. I like to keep a Smoky Quartz point in each room, or around the perimeter of the home. This will make a protective force field that surrounds your home, and property.

If you are like me, then you LOVE a good soak in the tub. Spiritual cleansing baths are a practical way to keep your aura strong and healthy. Add a handful of sea salt, and a Smoky Quartz point to your bath water and soak for 15 minutes. This will draw stray energy from your aura, and boost your protective barrier.

Smoky Quartz is also a very helpful stone in dealing with rough situations, challenges and loss. Working with this stone will ease the pain of grief and loss, and it will begin to transform negativity, pain and shadows into a positive, radiant, and vital vibration!

You may want to keep a piece of Smoky Quartz around if you’ve recently lost a loved one, doing shadow or, or dealing with spirit contact and communication. This will allows you to process energies easily without fear of harm, or attracting unwanted energies.

Book your cleansing, here. (Leave a note saying Spiritual Cleansing, with your name and email!)

Calling Dreams

 

Spiritual Message:

Stop telling yourself that there is no time for dreaming. I want you to remember that there is always something beautiful to be found, no matter how dark and dismal things may seem. You have to know that dreams can come alive in the dark.

If you have been working toward a goal or dreaming up some huge, crazy thing, then get ready because dreams are about to come true. It is your right to have everything you want. All the things that build you up, that make you feel whole, spiritual and vibrant are meant to be yours.

Do not deny yourself of your dreams!

Happiness is not somewhere in the distance. Respect your path and your spirit, and honor the wisdom that lives inside of you. When you embrace the inner callings of your soul, you open a treasure trove of possibilities.

What has been on your mind will now come into you life… so stop the worries! What you give your energy to is a request to the Universe to bring that vibration into your life. So bring only goodness in.

Begin to rejoice in the present moment as possibilities are in the process of becoming reality. Keep calling to your dreams and they will float softly to you. Now is the time and you have all the magic in the universe at your fingertips.

Affirm: “I can dream my biggest dreams, and I have the right to attain everyone of them. Each day I wake, a new dream is made reality…. And I am grateful for it!”

All the best,

Shaheen

 

What Are Spirit Guides?

Everyone has a collective of celestial helpers waiting to by their side. These are your spirit guides, and they are waiting patiently to help you. Sadly, some people never learn to consciously connect with their guides, but here is some information to introduce you to who they are and what they do!

What are Spirit Guides?

  • A spirit guides is a discarnate entity that’s sole purpose is to aide you on your life path.  You and your guide made a soul level contract before incarnation that they would watch over, guide and protect you, as well as disperse spiritual insights and synchronicities into your life.
  • Your spirit guide has a unique understanding of you and the path that you have laid out for yourself. Often they work with you when you create your spiritual map. They have a vantage point from which they guide you because they are able to see your map clearly and they can view the “bigger” picture of our journey.
  • Your spirit guide is your souls assistant working behind the scenes. Whether you are aware of them, they constantly watch over, protect and guide you.

Does everyone have a spirit guide?

  • Absolutely everyone has a spirit guide. Some may argue that there are people who do not have guides, but as far as I have seen we all do. No matter what your religious background or beliefs are, even if you do not believe in God, you still have a guide.
  • We have a primary guide, who has incarnated at least once. The reason being is so that they have empathy about our journey here on earth. Now if you do not believe in incarnation or that whole philosophy it doesn’t negate the idea of a spirit guide. We also have a secondary guide or guides that can walk into your lives at key points bringing us more specialized guidance. For example: If you are beginning to explore a new career path and you are very passionate about it, but not very confidant you may have a secondary guide who steps in and helps you in this area. They are specialty guides.

How can I recognize the presence of my spirit guide?

  • Any time you are stressed or undergoing extreme changes in your life a spirit guide will be more dominant in your life. Their purpose is to help you with the difficult areas of your journey, so when times are tough remember that they are there.
  • It is common for people to hear their name being called, when no one is around. Usually your guides are trying to get your attention.
  • You may see flashing lights, often blue or white. Maybe even shadows or silhouettes out of the corner of your eye.
  • Reoccurring dreams, especially of a stranger whom you feel comfortable with.
  • A unique fascination with a name or geographical place, which is often connected to the name or ethnicity of your guide.
  • Some sort of reoccurring symbol. Such as numbers, letters, motifs, etc.
  • Physical sensations. Often the feeling of being touched on a shoulder or hand or someone standing near you to one side or the other.

How can I know my guides name and what they look like?

  • Most people like to know the name of their guide first. There are many ways to get the name of your guide. Basically you can ask, “What is your name?” and then wait to see which name pops into your head first, or which names stands out to you (the next person you meet, a billboard, song on the radio or it may be written on a piece of paper). You can also use a baby name book and open a page at random and select a name by pointing with your eyes closed. Or the other way is to use a name that you feel drawn to.
  • People often want to know how their guides look or what their sex is before they connect with them. My answer to this is 1) they may appear in whatever form they wish. As an animal, ball of light or a physical person. Your primary guide will typically take the form of a human. Meditation is key in finding out what they look like or you may have a dream or vision or you could ask a reader. 2) You can ask them to appear in a certain form because your guide will do whatever it takes to work with you in your comfort zone.

How can I easily speak to my guide?

  • The simplest way to speak with your guide is by talking out loud to them. Your guide will find some way to communicate back with you. This could be through symbols, visions, dreams, songs, verbal communication, feelings, television programs or other people. They will find the best way to communicate with you if you just trust.
  • Using an oracle deck is an easy and powerful way to communicate with them.
  • Write letters to them or leave little messages posted around your home or office.
  • Mediate. You can do this through a guided meditation or by simply being still for a few minutes a day.
  • Creativity and art. They are drawn to creativity and they love to inspire us. Inspiration comes from the word spirit!

A few more things

  • Angels and spirit guides are not the same. Typically your spirit guide is not a loved one who passed. These are three different types of entities.
  • Your guides have far more ability to help you when you ASK for them to help!
  • Spirit guides do not control any aspect of your life; they only offer you help and guidance. You have free will at all times. You may even ask for certain aspects of your life to be inaccessible to your guides if you like.
  • They are not all knowing. They have more insight into our life because they are watching outside of it and they can connect with our subconscious mind which is far wiser and our map.
  • Guides are never negative, harmful, pushy, controlling or frightening.
  • They know when to turn their heads if you know what I mean, but they are never truly absent.
  • They truly are your bestfriends. When you begin to connect with them, it should be more like a reunion, rather than a first encounter.

This information is only a small portion of what can be written about the subject. I’ve only pulled out the basics to get you started so that you can begin working with and calling on your guides.  Once you’ve read this you can begin enriching your life by consciously connecting with them.

Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions that you may have about this subject. If there is anything that I can elaborate on or any confusion I may clear up, I would be more than happy to.  And I would love to hear any stories you may have about working with your guides. What was your first encounter like? Do you remember the first time you consciously worked with your guide?

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleaning and Protection: When Should You Spiritually Cleanse Your Home?

Spiritual hygiene feeds into the energetic story you are telling. If you practice good spiritual hygiene, you will add positive energy and abundance to your life. Paths will begin to open, and opportunities will fall in your life.

But spiritual cleansing is for more than just your body… it is for your home as well! Creating a high vibration in the home will add to your overall experience. Your home is a reflection of you. If you take care if it, then it will take care of you!

When should you spiritually cleanse your home?

1. When you first move in.

Whenever you first move into a space you should spiritually cleanse it. You should bless the space and remove any negative or stagnant energy that may be lingering in the space. Previous residents will leave their unique vibration on the space, and that vibration may not feed into the experience you are trying to have. Shifting this energy, and clearing the slate will empower you and the life you are beginning to lead in the new space.

2. When there is a fight or altercation.

It is especially important to clear the air after an intense fight or argument. Altercations in the home taint the atmosphere and leave an imprint on the delicate energy field that surrounds your home. If this is left unattended it can grow into a powerful force that influences your mood, and the interactions you have in the space. Do you have a room, or space in your home that always seems to instigate a fight? It’s time to clear the air!

3. When Tragedy has struck.

If there has been a tragedy in the home you should absolutely perform a cleansing. This will help to move the healing process along faster. A tragedy could be anything from a loss of a loved one, to a financial set back. Adding this positive vibration to the mix will ensure that you make it through trying times with grace.

4. When changes are being made.

Any time you are making change in the home such as construction, or moving things around, or downsizing you should perform some small act of cleansing. This will help things settle and patch up any psychic holes that may ensue from moving things around. Energy is like dust. If things are ruffled up… forgotten energies may show up!

5. When someone moves in or moves out.

Always, always, always do a cleansing when someone moves in or out of the space. This will help their energetic thumbprint align with, or disconnect from the space. Remember, your home is a living energetic being just like you. Everything in the space, or that comes in contact with the space weaves into the energetic structure. Sometimes adding or taking something away will shake things up and cause a feeling of chaos. This usually settles in time, but with a little spiritual cleansing, things will equalize much faster.

6. After illness has been in the household.

Illness vibrates at a low level. When illness falls upon your home it will weaken the vibration and pull things downward. To counteract this you should lift the spirits of the space. This often helps the healing process along faster. This can be a major illness, or a minor cold!

7. When someone dies.

Again, when someone leaves/dies you want to disconnect their energy from the energetic vibration of the space. Don’t fear that you are forgetting about them, or keeping their spirit from visiting… this process helps to bring healing to the space and the people the live in it. When we are grieving there is a need to look forward. If you keep yourself in old worn-out energy patterns you begin limiting yourself, and giving away abundant energy that could be invested in more important dreams and goals.

8. After the winter.

Winter is time of rest and recuperation. Though it can turn into stagnation. The energy in your home will begin to get stuffy and cluttered though the winter. Doing a major “energetic” spring-cleaning will propel things forward into full bloom! Where do you think spring-cleaning came from! Out with the old and in with the new!

Stay tuned for more tips on spiritual cleanings in the home! We will learn more about creating beautiful sacred space!

The Gypsy’s Tricks for Spiritual Cleansing and Protection: Spiritual Cleansing After a Bad Break-up Part Three

Spiritually cleansing yourself after a break-up will shift your life into a much better direction. You will feel empowered, uplifted and renewed. The process will take time. The more open you are to the healing the faster things will move forward.

After any kind of ending or loss it is important to spiritually cleanse your home. Your home is a reflection of your inner state. If you begin making changes in the home, the result will be intense internal shifts. This is the kind of healing traction you need to raise your vibration and move yourself forward.

  1. Remove things that remind you of the past. The person. The break-up. You want to get rid of anything that will keep an energetic connection between you and your ex. Sometimes there are things that hold memories that you just can’t part with, either it is too sentimental, or they are essential to your daily life. These things link into your energetic pattern and sway where you are vibrationally. If you must keep it try tucking it away in a box for safe keeping until you are in a neutral place, or update it in some way to make it “yours” again.
  2. Spiritually Wash your home. You can make a simple wash with spring water and sea salt. You can add vinegar to the wash or lemon juice. A touch of rose water is always good. You can even make a strong tea from white sage and add it to the spring water. Imagine the wash being filled with vibrant white light. Wash the entire space. Walls, floors baseboards, windows, all objects. Anywhere dirt and dust collect, energy will collect.
  3. Smudge your home. Use sage, cedar or pine to smudge your home. Make sure to smudge in rooms where you spent most of your time together. Smudge in areas that are cluttered, or cramped. Make sure to get under tables, chairs, and in closets. The smoke from the smudge will clear away unintentional energy and lower vibrations that are left over from the relationship and break-up.
  4. Light blue and white candles. This brings uplifting energy into the space. You can say a prayer, or ask for your guides to surround you. See the home being filled with white light. Blue is the color of peace, calm and blessing. White is the color of purity and Spirit. Fire attracts positive vibrations.
  5. Redecorate! Remove old, worn-out things that no longer serve you. Purge the space of the unnecessary. Move furniture around. Repaint if you can. Add something new and inspirational to the walls. Anything that will signal to your mind and spirit that you are moving in a new direction. This will shake up the normal energy pattern in the space, and allow it to re-align with your new state of being.

Be ready for big changes to take place. If you are persistent and consistent with your process magic will start to happen. The more you create an atmosphere for the life you want, the easier you will get it!
