Cleaning like a Witch
With COVID-19 in full swing, we’re all on high alert and taking spring cleaning to a new level. In today’s post I have put together a list of ways to magickally cleanse your home, in addition to that squeaky clean shine.
With the beginning of spring always comes the urge to clean. Opening the windows, deep cleaning the carpets and mattresses, donating old clothes and rearranging the furniture are a few things that usually happen during spring cleaning. Once the physical cleaning is complete though, we have take it a step further by adding an energetic cleansing. Can you recall the last time you purged old, stagnant energy from your home?
Sound and smoke are your best allies for the job, this cleaning task is the most fun of all. Grab a tambourine, rattle or pot and spoon and shake things up! The vibrations from the sounds will help liven things up. Make sure to open up all the cabinets and make noise in even the most abandoned corners, the stale energy can caught get there. Next, use smoke to cleanse the home and space. Burning herbs and wafting the smoke once again throughout the space and in all the nooks and crannies. Rosemary has antibacterial properties that can be very beneficial at this time and is likely already in your spice collection!
No special tools are required other than your imagination and intention. Get creative, make lots of noise and involve the kids (they might think you’ve gone quarantine crazy or are the best mom ever.) Invite an energy into your home that’s uplifting, fresh and charged.
