Egg Cleansing for the Home

Spiritual cleansing, or “Limpia” with an egg is an old, and powerful form of spiritual cleansing. It is very popular in Latin folk-magic, but has its roots in many cultures. You can read more about self-cleansing with an egg, here!

Lets take this wonderful technique a step further and spiritually cleanse the home. Spiritually cleansing of the home is very important because your home is a reflection of your inner world, and as it becomes tainted by negative and lower level vibrations you become heavier and more lost in the fog. Take ownership of your space and make it sacred, as it should be!

To begin gather one large fresh egg. This egg should be free-range, and organic. It should be room temperature before you begin. Also gather a glass of fresh spring water, a sage smudge or sweet incense, and a white or pink candle.

Wash the egg in a mixture of salt water, and lemon juice. This ensures that the egg is not holding onto stray energies before the session.

Put yourself in a relaxed state. Make sure no one is in the home that will disturb you.

Hold the egg in your hand. Saying a prayer or affirmation of cleansing and peace. Begin at the entrance of the home, and waft the egg around each corner of the room, around the entrances, doorways and windows. Around any clutter, heavy furniture, and places that feel stagnant.

Move through the entire house, one room to the next. Continue to focus on your intention of cleansing the home. Ask for blessing and guidance from the Universe. And trust your intuition about where to go.

Make sure to focus on openings of any kind. Places that is cluttered, stagnant or dark, such as closets or cabinets. And any rooms that have a particularly heavy feeling, or some kind of history that you want to work through.

The egg is essentially a psychic vacuum that is picking up, and holding any unwanted energy present in the space.

When you are finished you can break the egg into the cup of water. Allowing the contents of the egg to settle. At this time it is good to go through each room with the sage smudge, or incense stick. Letting it waft into all the same places as the egg.

This will add an extra layer of cleansing. And will ensure the space is blessed with positive vibration.

Once I have done this I like to light a white or pink candle in the hearth, or center of the home, or in each room. This candle represents the light of the Universe, and blessings of love filling the space of the negativity that has been released. Allow the candle to safely burn down.

Another element I like to add to the process is placing a bouquet of fresh white flowers in each room.

Once the cleansing session is finished you can observer the yoke of the egg for signs of the energy that was removed from the space. Think of this like looking at clouds in the sky. What shapes have formed? How do they make you feel? What do they seem to represent.

To dispose of the egg after interpreting the yoke, dumb the contents into the toilet and flush. Or place into a running stream off of your property. If you haven’t broken the egg place in a paper bag in the trash off of your property.

Visit this article for more information about interpreting the yoke. 

Do this process as often as you like. I suggest doing a home cleansing at least once a month, or ideally once a week. And whenever there is any kind of altercation, misfortune, or illness in the space.

Please, let me know if you have any other questions.

      Hello Maria, Yes, anyone can do the egg cleansing. I have presented all the various forms of cleansing here for people to use on their own… A practical guide to mystical living if you will. But, not everyone feels confident in doing it on their own, and often times it is a good move to consult a spirit worker to help you if you are feeling particularly stuck which is why I also do private sessions with clients. I hope that helps! Shaheen
