Halloween isn’t what it used to be. It is an ancient holiday that signals the veil between the living and dead is at it’s thinist. This means you can experience more ghost activity in your home. This doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll see apparitions, though many can see something out of the corner of their eye that vanishes when they turn to look. What many people experience is heightened irritability, trouble sleeping, an intense feeling of anxiety with no cause and an uncontrollable anger that pops up out of nowhere.
Clearing the house is one solution to calm and clear this paranormal activity. Here are three easy ways to clear the energy of your home.
- Smudge the house. This is a Native American inspired method of space clearing. You take a bundle of white sage (easily found at Whole Foods or your local health food store) and you light the bundle. It will flame for a moment and then it will smolder. The rising smoke clears the energy. Carry the smudge stick from room to room. Want to know more? Here’s a link to my best-selling booklet on Smudging.
- Use sound to clear your home. Find a pleasant sounding bell you can ring in the house. Start at the front door and then move through the house ringing the bell loudly. Go through the entire house finishing where you started at the front door. You can use a bell or a singing bowl.
- Salt works too. Dissolve sea salt or Himalayan pink salt in warm water and add to a spray bottle. You can walk through the house spraying the mixture into the air to clear the energy.
Any of these methods will work. Choose the one you feel most comfortable with. You may have to clear more than once during the month of October. And then follow up with a clearing either monthly or at least once a quarter.
