Naturally, we want our home to feel the best that it can. That means protecting it, and you, from outside negative influences and energies. In this article I will be going over a few methods of energetically cleansing and protecting your home.
SAGE: For starters, sage the house. Follow your intuition on when to do this, however, I highly recommend it when you are moving into a new place, after any negative interactions (like a fight), or if someone has come around that has left that “yuck” vibe behind. You will know when your house needs it. Open the windows and sage around each room so that any negative energies can leave through the window. I personally start at the door of the room and work my way clockwise. Do whatever works for you. You can use incense for the same purpose. Also, there is a sage smudge spray if you cannot handle the smoke from sage or incense.
CRYSTALS: For general house protection from negative energies, I highly recommend Black Tourmaline. It is among one of the most protective and grounding crystals. It protects against all forms of negative energies, including electromagnetic smog (EMF), and geopathic stress. You can place this crystal either on the corners of your property or inside of your house. Either way will work just fine.
Another crystal that I have found to be quite powerful for protection, especially from electromagnetic frequencies is Shungite. This would be ideal to place around a room that contains a high amount of electronics, like a computer room or living room. Or you can simply place it near the electronics, especially your Wi-Fi box. Remember to cleanse your crystal at least once a month. Sage or sound are both simple and effective methods that do not require physically removing your crystal.
I also recommend Selenite, also placed in the main corners of your house. Selenite needs to be placed inside, though, as it is a very soft and fragile crystal that can be damaged and even dissolved in water. Selenite is protective and brings about a calming, angelic quality into the home. It promotes a peaceful atmosphere. Think of Black Tourmaline as being a protective shield and Selenite the guardian angels.
Rose Quartz is another crystal that I like to put in the main rooms where people are at the most, like the Living Room. Simply place a chunk of Rose Quartz in the room to attract calming, loving, peaceful energy.
GRID THE HOUSE: As mentioned, you will place Black Tourmaline and Selenite in each of the main corners of your home. If you feed a room needs extra protection you can also grid individual rooms. Typically with grids you would energetically link the crystals together with a wand while stating your affirmation. Obviously, when you are gridding your house, that is easier said than done. (Pesky walls!) Instead, I’d suggest placing your crystals and state your affirmation while placing them.
A suggestion for an affirmation, “This home and everyone within are divinely protected at all times.” — Use whatever affirmation you prefer.
Once the crystals have been put in place, sit approximately in the middle of your house so you are as close to being in the middle of your house grid as possible. Relax and focus your energy. Visualize the crystals being connected energetically. You can also visualize a white or golden protective, energetic shield around your house that is emanating from the crystals.
Frequently Asked Questions
• Do the crystals need to be placed inside of the home or outside?
That is your choice as both works. I prefer the inside far corners of the home for protection of the house. However, you can also grid the 4 corners of your property as well. If this thought appeals to you then try putting Black Tourmaline at the 4 corners of your property and Selenite on the inside corners of your home.
• What if I live in an apartment? Where would I put the crystals?
Place the crystals in the 4 main corners of your apartment instead of around the entire building. This brings the protection to your apartment without the hassle of other tenants finding and moving your crystals.
• Can I do a protection grid just around my room? Or does it have to be the whole building?
Yes, you can place the crystals just around your room. It does not have to be the whole building. Crystals can be placed around the corners of a property, around the corners of a house, or the corners of the room. It comes down to where you want to add the protection. As mentioned above, since you stated that it is specifically your room that you are looking to protect then you would want to put the crystals around the corners of your room.
• What is your take on permanent placement of grids? We are considering having the crystals built into the walls of our home.
Personally, I am not a fan of permanent grids where I am not able to access the crystals or where they are placed and forgotten. Grids work with the power of intention. While, yes, they will still work to some degree, it will have a stronger energy when you can cleanse the crystals periodically as well as reactivate the crystal grid when you feel it is necessary.
