Once you’ve cleansed your home, office, or other space, you may be thinking, “What next?”
As promised in last week’s blog post, Space Clearing Basics, this week we’re going to cover what to do once your smudge wand has been put out. Many people stop here, believing the clearing work to be complete, but we encourage you to take it a step further and introduce something to bless the space. Smudging may remove the negative energy, but it’s valuable to then bring positive energy into your room, land, or building.
Intention is key at this point. Now that your space feels lighter and brighter and what you don’t want has been removed, consider what you do want in that space. Set an intention for your space blessing that reflects your intention for the space. For example, if you have cleared your new office, then your intention may be to bring in prosperity or focus. If you’ve cleared your home, or a room in it like your bedroom, then your intention may be to bring in more love or peace.
With your intention set, there are many ways you can go about blessing the space that is newly cleared. The simplest of these would be prayer or meditation. Praying or meditating within a space raises its vibration. To go further, you might choose to burn a candle—white, yellow, blue, or pink are popular choices for this. Or you might burn another herb besides sage, such as sweetgrass or lavender, which are known to bring in positive entities and sensations. You could bring in one or more crystals to raise the energy in the room. If you’d like to learn more about how to use crystals to create sacred space, check out our Crystals & Stones: The Basics course taught by Certified Crystal Healer and Reader, Anna Silver.
You can even ring a bell. Music is a wonderful way to bless your space; play anything that makes you feel happy, safe, or loved. There is really no limit to the ways in which you can bless your space once it is cleared. A beautiful angel statue, a favorite work of art, ecstatic dance, and burning a delightful incense are even more ideas.
