Gather Your Supplies:

  • A white candle: The candle’s white color represents purity, clarity, and spiritual enlightenment, aligning with your intention to cleanse the space of unwanted energies.
  • Salt: Salt, traditionally known for its purifying and protective properties, is a symbolic barrier against harmful energies. Its presence in the ritual reinforces the intention of cleansing and renewal, ensuring that only positive vibrations permeate the environment.
  • A small bowl of water: Water, associated with emotions, purification, and renewal, soothes and cleanses the process.
  • A besom or witch’s broom: The besom, a traditional tool in witchcraft and folklore, represents purification and sweeping away negative energies. It’s often used in rituals to physically and symbolically cleanse a space. Alternatively, you can use any broom you have available, infusing it with your intention for cleansing and renewal.
  • Any other items that hold meaning for you, like crystals or herbs

House Cleansing Spell

Before beginning the house cleansing spell, it’s essential to prepare your space for the practice. Find a quiet and comfortable area where you won’t be disturbed during the ritual. This could be a corner of a room, a cozy nook, or any space where you feel relaxed and focused.

As you embark on the home cleansing ritual, remember you are the catalyst for this transformation. Your active participation and belief in the process are crucial. Close your eyes and take a few deep breaths to center yourself in the present moment. Visualize a bright, cleansing light surrounding you and your home, illuminating every corner with positive energy. State your intention clearly and with conviction, such as “I cleanse this space of negativity and invite in positive energy.” Your intention is the key that unlocks the potential of this ritual.

Begin the home cleansing ritual by calling in the elements. The elements, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, are believed to be the building blocks of the universe and are often invoked in spiritual practices for their unique energies.  Stand or sit comfortably and visualize yourself surrounded by the energies of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. Say aloud or in your mind, “I call upon the powers of Earth, Air, Fire, and Water to aid me in this cleansing ritual. May their energies combine to purify and protect this space.”

Light the white candle, invoking the element of Fire to illuminate the space with its cleansing energy. As the flame flickers and dances, envision it purifying the atmosphere and dispelling any lingering negativity. Remember to always practice fire safety and never leave a lit candle unattended.

Next, take a small amount of salt and sprinkle it in a clockwise direction around the candle. This act creates a protective barrier, as clockwise movement is often associated with drawing in positive energy and creating a boundary against negativity. As you sprinkle the salt, visualize it forming a shimmering shield that repels negative influences and preserves the sanctity of the space.

After setting your intention and preparing your space, it’s time to physically cleanse the area using a besom or your broom. As you begin sweeping, visualize the besom or broom as a conduit of energy, channeling the cleansing power of Earth and Air. With each stroke, imagine that you are sweeping away not just physical debris but also energetic stagnation and negativity. The sweeping motion symbolizes releasing and clearing old, stagnant energies lingering in your space.

While sweeping, chant the following words or a variation that resonates with you: “With this besom filled with power, sweep away the old and sour. Sweep away the chill of death as winter draws its last cold breath. Round, round, roundabout, sweep the old and useless out!” These words aim to clear away negativity, stagnant energy, and anything that no longer serves your highest good.

As you chant and sweep, feel the energy shifting and the space becoming lighter and more vibrant. Trust in the cleansing power of your intention and the physical act of sweeping to create a harmonious and purified environment. 

After completing the physical cleansing with the besom or broom, it’s time to incorporate the element of Water into the ritual. Water, associated with emotions, purification, and renewal, soothes and cleanses the process.   Dip your fingers into the water bowl and feel its coolness against your skin. As you do so, connect with the element of Water and its cleansing properties. Visualize the water as a flowing stream of purity, capable of washing away negativity and refreshing your home’s energy.

Lightly sprinkle the water around the house, moving from room to room. Envision each water droplet carrying away any residual negativity or stagnant energy and leaving behind a sense of renewal and positivity. You can also use a small spray bottle to mist the water if you prefer.

While sprinkling the water, state your intention clearly and with conviction. Affirm aloud or in your mind, “I cleanse this space of negativity and invite in positive energy. May this water wash away all that no longer serves and bring forth renewal and harmony.”

As you speak these words and continue to sprinkle the water, feel a sense of empowerment and transformation filling the space. Trust in the cleansing power of the elements and your intention to create a harmonious and energetically balanced environment.

Once you have sprinkled the water throughout the house and affirmed your intention, take a moment to appreciate your space’s refreshed energy and renewed vitality. You have completed the home cleansing ritual, inviting positive energy and setting the stage for a harmonious and uplifting atmosphere.

State your intention once more, affirming the cleansing and renewal of the space. Thank the elements for their presence and assistance throughout the ritual. To release the elements, say, “I thank Earth, Air, Fire, and Water for their presence and assistance. May their energies continue to bless and protect this space. After the ritual, it’s important to respectfully dispose of the salt and water. You can pour the water outside or down the drain, scatter the salt in a natural area, or bury it in the earth.”

Finally, blow out the candle to complete the ritual, inviting positive energy and light. Trust in your abilities and believe in the power of your intentions as you practice this spell.
