Release stuck energy, negative thought patterns, malicious magical vibrations, and general negativity from a physical space with this powerful clearing ritual.
This is an excerpt from my book, You Are Magical.
Does the energy in your space feel heavy, unhappy, or otherwise negative?
Whether the source of this energy is from previous tenants, negative thoughts that are consistently being sent your way, or any other bad-vibey-ness, you can perform this ritual to banish negativity from a home, business, or other physical space.
- A white or off-white soy candle and holder (optional)
- Plenty of sea salt in a bowl
- A grapefruit
- A cutting board and knife
- 4 clear quartz crystal points, cleansed in bright sunlight for at least 5-10 minutes
- A selenite crystal or wand, cleansed in bright sunlight for at least 5-10 minutes
If you have pets in the space, arrange for them to be somewhere else during the ritual.
Light the candle, if you’ve got one. Open all the windows and doors. Now move around each room and area in a counterclockwise direction, decisively throwing handfuls of sea salt at the walls and in the corners as you go. As you do this, feel and sense that you are powerfully cleansing the home of negativity by both neutralizing and repelling it. Repeat on any additional floors.
Cut the grapefruit into four quarters. Go outside, and moving in a clockwise direction this time, visit all four corners of your home or property (whichever feels right). If you’re in an apartment, or the four corners are difficult to reach or discern, just approximate them as best you can. At each corner, squeeze one grapefruit quarter so the juice drips onto the ground, then leave the remaining corner on the ground with the juice. As you do this, feel and sense that you are setting a strong boundary of positivity, through which only clean, fresh, loving energy may enter, and in which only such energy may remain.
Go back inside and wash your hands if they’re sticky. Next, move around the inside of the space, visiting all four corners (or approximating them as best you can). At each corner, place one of the quartz crystal points. As you do so, feel that you are reinforcing the boundary of positivity and protection. (If you have additional floors, you only need to do this on one floor.)
Finally, with the selenite crystal in hand, move around each room and area in a generally clockwise direction. Intuitively wave the crystal around like a magic wand, recalibrating and reharmonizing the energy as you go.
If possible, leave the salt for twelve to twenty-four hours before sweeping or vacuuming it up. Also leave the grapefruit quarters for a similar amount of time before composting them, burying them, or placing them in your yard waste bin. The crystals can also stay in place for twelve to twenty-four hours, after which they can be cleansed (in sunlight, sage smoke, and/or running water) and stored for future magical work.
