Cleansing with Holy Water

Holy water is water that has been blessed by an ordained Roman Catholic or any religious figure. It has always been used as protection from evil. One can keep the holy water in a vial and sprinkle or spray it wherever there is negative energy at home.

One can also recite the prayers written in Carlos Oliveira’s book titled House Cleansing and Blessing Prayer. A snippet is included below.

“Father in Heaven, I now ask that You expose all evil practices that have been done, publicly or secretly, in this home and property.

Father I now dedicate this home and property to You, I ask that You anoint and bless every room in this home and all items, objects, furniture, electronic devices, automobiles, etc.

Father in Heaven, in Jesus’ name, I ask that You anoint and bless all humans

and animals living in this property.

Thank You, Father, for Your blessings and protection, in Jesus’ mighty name, we pray. AMEN!”

Other Simple Ways to Cleanse a House Without Sage

  • Transform negative energy into positive energy by playing a beautiful sound. Play an instrument, sing, use crystal singing bowls, or clap your hands.
  • Always have a bowl of fresh oranges, clementine, or tangerines at home. An alternative for this is to use an essential oil diffuser that has healing properties.
  • Cut lemons in half and put them on a bed of rock salt. Place them wherever there is negative energy.
  • Burn white wax candles and concentrate on positivity and gratitude.
  • Keep the windows open as much as possible. Let the natural sunlight and fresh air remove the negative energy.
  • Clean the house and pay attention to the windows. Get rid of cobwebs, dust, and debris. Clean spaces nurture creativity.
  • Rearrange objects or furniture at home.
  • Throw out broken objects. These often carry negative energies.
  • Unwanted energy can attach themselves to inanimate objects. Let go of emotionally charged objects like antiques that hold negative energy.
  • Decorate the house with plants. Plants add a positive vibration in space. Consider placing plants in windowsills. Fill the house with flowers. Use carnations for healing, chrysanthemums to attract nutritive vibration, gardenias for harmony, lilies for new beginnings, or rose for love.
  • Place crystals around the place. Different crystals hold different energies. Choose protective crystals such as clear quartz, black obsidian, citrine, bloodstone, black tourmaline, kyanite, selenite, hematite, and desert rose.
  • Cleanse the crystals from time to time. Soak them in saltwater or let them sit under the moonlight.
