A pendulum either in copper or made from a natural stone (do not use glass)
Chair (in case you’d like to sit)
IMPORTANT: Drink a full glass of water before AND after. Water helps to clear spiritual toxins from our energy bodies without the process causing undesired side effects like headache, dizziness, nausea or mood swings.
Ask your angels & guides to work through your pendulum. Inform them you intend for the energy to balance, clear & heal your chakras.
First, figure out the health of your chakras.
Depending on what is YES and what is NO for you & your pendulum, a YES swing means the chakra is fine, NO means it’s out of balance or perhaps even blocked. Size & speed of the swing or rotation will denote the severity of a block or imbalance.
Do this for all 7 main chakras from ROOT to CROWN, so from the base to the top.
Once you know where the imbalances are, you balance your chakras from CROWN to ROOT.
Just hold the pendulum up over your crown until it begins to move (this can cause your arm to hurt if it takes a while). It will most likely begin to swing in a NO direction if there’s an imbalance. Wait for it to stop swinging. It will stop. If the chakra is healthy, the pendulum will swing in a YES direction. It will keep swinging in an ever widening arch or circle as the energy works to further balance the chakra.
The pendulum will arch or swing in a YES direction if a chakra is already healthy. All it to complete its swing. It will stop at some point, but don’t force it to stop because it is sending further balancing energy into that chakra.
If the pendulum moves in a NO direction, you may with your free hand stop the swing. Once you have done that, ask your angels and guides to balance and heal that chakra. Allow your pendulum to start swinging.
In MOST cases it will kind of jiggle in place for a few seconds before it slowly begins to move in a YES direction. As it sends more healing energy into the chakra the YES movement will become more pronounced.
Allow your pendulum to do the work. Do NOT stop the movement. Allow the movement to continue until it stops on its own. Once it has stopped you will know that chakra is now cleared and balanced. Then move on to the next chakra until you have completed all 7 of the major chakras.
We have chakras in every joint in our bodies and all organs possess chakras as well. If you’d like to give yourself a nice overall healing also focus on the chakras within the palms of your hands, your fingers, elbows, shoulders, hips, knees, ankles, heels, soles of your feet and toes.
When you’re finished, give thanks & drink another glass of water.
That’s all there is to it.
It is also a good idea if you do this in the future to purchase a pendulum that will only be for your chakras. Be sure it is made from either copper, which is an excellent conductor of energy, or some natural stone.
My favorite choices for the stone are amethyst (associated with the crown chakra), lapis lazuli (associated with the third eye chakra), and aventurine (associated with the heart chakra). It is best to choose a stone that is known to be associated with one of the seven main chakras.
Until next time, wishing you & yours many blessings!
I’m sure everyone has had the “blahs” or a day when you just don’t feel quite yourself. You may think that perhaps it’s stress or maybe you’re coming down with some type of bug. Whatever the case may be, you are feeling out of sorts, but can’t put your finger on the cause.
This is where a very quick and simple spiritual cleansing of your energy body can do wonders for you. My aunt taught me this method & I have used it most of my life so I pass it along to you. May it help you as much as it has helped me over the years.
two full glasses of water
If you like, you can place the water in a pitcher, or just have 2 full glasses of water within easy reach. My aunt always prayed to Archangel Michael over the glasses of water. You can do that or pray to whomever you resonate with the best. If you are attuned to Reiki or any other healing modality, feel free to give your water a burst of energy before you use it.
My Aunt’s Method:
My aunt was Catholic so she began by saying this prayer to Archangel Michael:
Archangel Saint Michael, Defend us in our battles. Be our protection against the wickedness & snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, Thrust into hell satan & all evil forces who wander the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
She would say this prayer while holding her hands over the water with her fingers together as though she was wearing a tight fitting pair of mittens. Her palms would be facing the water. I have seen her do this with one palm over each glass of water, or both palms held over a pitcher of water. Your choice.
Next, she would anoint her forehead by dipping the index finger of her dominant hand into the first glass of water. She would then make the Sign of the Cross on her forehead and also over her heart. If you’re not Christian or the Cross makes you feel uncomfortable (after all, it was a method of extreme torture), you can substitute the Cross for another symbol that conveys to you the meanings of holiness, spirituality, and protection. Other ideas are: the Egyptian Ankh (which is what I use since I work with Egyptian deities), the pentagram, Star of David, Hamsa, and so on.
Next, drink the first glass of water down completely. You can do this as slowly or quickly as you wish.
Grab your broom. This can be any kind of broom, but I use a besom, as did my aunt. It’s otherwise known as a “witch’s broom.”
Hold the broom with the bristles pointed upward. The broom should be straight over your head so that the base of the broom handle is in your hands, which are directly above your head.
Swing the broom in a counterclockwise circle over your head beginning with a tiny circle that approximately matches the circumference of your head. Sweep the broom in ever widening circles until you are swinging it outward as far as you can. Be sure you’re not near anything that you may knock over with your broom.
Work your hands up the length of the broom’s handle. Beginning in the front of your chest hand the broom handle over from your right to your left hand. You are going to now use the broom to “sweep” a circle around your body.
Be sure the bristles of the broom are facing UP for the entire cleansing process.
With the broom handle now securely held by your left hand move it so the broom is basically behind your back. You have just “swept” the area of your aura from your chest through your left-hand side and approximately halfway across your back.
Next, place your right hand behind you and grab the broom handle with it. Continue the counterclockwise motion along the right-hand side of your body and on back to your chest area.
Repeat this three times with the bristles always remaining at chest height.
Work your hands further up the broom handle and hold the broom so the bristles are now level with your navel. You may actually be holding the base of the bristles themselves, depending on the size of your besom or broom. That is fine. Repeat the same process making sure the bristles are pointed UP. Begin with the broom handle in your right hand. Move it across your body to your left & grab the handle with your left hand so you can continue the sweep across your back, then grab the broom while it’s still behind you with your right hand and complete the circle so that the bristles are back at your navel.
Repeat three times.
At this point, switch the orientation of the broom so that the bristles now face the floor, but DO NOT ALLOW THEM TO TOUCH THE FLOOR.
Begin by holding the broom handle in your right hand. Sweep the air just above your feet, but do not allow the bristles of the broom to come into contact with the floor. Should this happen you’ll have to start over from the beginning, but you can skip drinking another glass of water.
Complete the counterclockwise circle around your feet three times.
Set your broom aside and thank whomever you have called upon at the start of your cleansing for their help and protection. Do this in your own words.
Ask whomever you called upon in the beginning to bless the second glass of water with blessings. You can ask for particular blessings you need; for example: good health, healing, love, prosperity, a new job, and so on.
You can ask that the water be charged for 3 different blessings.
Drink the glass of water.
It is done.
This cleansing can be repeated any time you feel the need. You can also perform this cleansing on others, but be sure that whoever receives the cleansing is the person to drink the water. If you do this on your pets they are not required to drink any water.

I received proof today that a spiritual house cleansing is a tangible thing that even a nonbeliever can sense once it has been carried out, but more on that later. I live in Houston and after a very brief, but intense winter cold snap temps are now back up to the high 70’s so I decided to open all the windows today to enjoy the breeze. Since it had been a while I decided to carry out a major house cleansing. I figured that as last year was so yucky for so many of us (myself included!) that you may be interested in learning my method of spiritual house cleansing so you can rid yourself of all that nasty energy from last year and start 2017 with an energetic clean slate.
A thorough cleansing of a home or business consists of opening every closet, cabinet, drawer, cubby, the attic, garage, & the perimeter of the property. I arm myself with a lighter & a box of my current favorite stick incense or the old standby, which is frankincense & myrrh. As I walk through the property I make sure the incense smoke visibly reaches all areas, especially corners of the ceiling where negative energy can remain trapped. Negative energy can also hide in drawers, closets, under the beds, and so on, which is why it’s important to open all those areas up & be sure to waft some incense into each spot. It is also very important to leave a window cracked open in EACH room. This gives the negative energy an easy escape route.
Materials you need are simple: a lighter and either frankincense & myrrh or your favorite scent of incense. Now, if you are experiencing paranormal activity in your home use the frankincense & incense. This is used by the Catholic Church prior to every Mass so if it’s good enough for them … plus, negative entities do not like the smell. Sometimes the smell alone can be enough to drive them away. This is due the very high frequency of frankincense & myrrh when used in combination.
Once you have opened all closets, drawers, and so on start at either the front door or the entry to the building you use the most. Open the door & in your own words invite the negative energy to leave. Close the door and commence with the spiritual cleansing.
Visualize a bird’s eye view of the property and impose upon that the face of a clock. Your front door will be at 6:00. Any back door to the property will be at approximately 12:00 (or 11, or 1, depending on the location of the back door in relation to the front door). The midway point of the left-hand side of your house (as you stand at the front door facing inward) will be at 9:00. The midway point of the right-hand side of your house will be at 3:00.
It is VERY important when carrying out a cleansing that you constantly work your way counterclockwise through the building. This direction holds true for the entire building as well as each individual room & closet. In this way you shall start at the door you use the most and move to your right. So as you make your way through the building you are constantly moving to the rooms on your right as you work your way around until you are back at your front door. So you are moving from 6:00 to 3:00 to 12:00 to 9:00 and you then complete the circuit back at 6:00.
If you have more than 1-story/floor to deal with, start at the very top. For my home, this is the attic. I actually climb the rickety ladder that leads up to it & waft the incense around. I begin in the far right corner and move on to the front right corner, then the front left corner, and back to the spot where our attic door is located, which is the rear left-corner. I allow the incense smoke to float on up to the rafters in all four corners as I say prayers to Archangel Michael asking him to conduct any negative energies out of our home and into the light. Should you wish to pray to him, I include his prayer at the end of this post. You can also google “prayers to Saint Michael” and quite a few will come up so you can choose the one with which you resonate the best.
As you begin at the top of the building work your way down always keeping in mind you must be moving constantly counterclockwise so you will be moving always to your right. You enter each room as it comes up to your right, cleanse each room beginning in the right-hand corner nearest the point at which you entered the room, moving counterclockwise from the right-hand corner nearest the door to the right-hand corner furthest from the door, then on over to the left-hand corner furthest from the door and finally to the left-hand corner nearest the door. Then you leave the room.
If you like, when I leave a room I have just cleansed I seal the room. I will wave the incense in the door and make the shape of the Ankh. Sometimes I will use the Pentagram and place the Ankh within it. This is a personal preference of mine that you are not required to do in order for your own house cleansing to be successful.
Once you are done with one floor, continue on with the floor below until you have reached the first floor. Carry out the cleansing on the first floor in the same manner you cleansed the upper floor(s), but as you begin and end at your front door or the door you use the most, open the door at the end of the cleansing and COMMAND all negative energy to leave & tell it that it does NOT have your permission to ever return. Do this in your own words. Then step outside and with the incense walk the perimeter of your property counterclockwise as well while praying to Archangel Michael or whatever aspect of higher power you call upon for help with your spiritual cleansing. End once again at your front door.
This final bit is of crucial importance so NEVER omit it! As you open your door to enter your newly cleansed home or business with the door STILL OPEN say in your own words that you invite in the positive forces of the universe. You should mention angels, spirit guides, protective ancestors, aspects of Deity, and any other spiritual beings you would like to take up residence in your home. Also ask them to keep all negative energy out of your home and away from your property.
Your spiritual cleansing is now complete. As for that proof that spiritually cleansing your home really works, my husband is a born again Southern Baptist. He is also a Virgo. And a former banker! I know, I know. Why, oh why did I ever marry him? I married him because he is a good man, can handle money well while I cannot, & he has the ability to make me laugh everyday. It is not easy to make me laugh. That alone scored him major brownie points while we were dating.
I cleansed our home today while my husband was out meeting with prospective clients for his business. He left the banking industry and now runs his own business providing in-home non-medical care for the elderly. I knew he would be gone a few hours, which gave me enough time to conduct a thorough cleansing. I finished about 3 hours before he got home and with all the windows open there was no residual scent of incense in our home by the time he arrived.
He walked in the house and began telling me about his day, then he stopped not three minutes into the conversation in mid-sentence and said, “Oh, wow! It sure was a great idea to open some windows today. The house feels so light & airy. In fact, it just feels really GOOD in here. Did you do something? You know, something witchy?”
For a non-believer my husband is quite intuitive and he can pick up on energies, little does he realize himself. I merely smiled and said, “I gave the house a thorough spiritual cleansing today & invited the angels to come in to play.”
He laughed and replied, “as long as it’s NOT fairies. Those guys hide my car keys on me!” Which is a whole other story …
This is my personal method for undertaking a heavy duty spiritual house cleansing. I share all the steps with you here & I hope that you find my method useful and helpful.
You will need the following:
a safe holder for each candle
Ideally, the candles should be Saint Michael candles. Now, if you can’t find them, that’s okay too. What you will then need are 4redcandles, all the same size, and a safe holder for each one. You will be burning all 4 at once so you need 4 candle holders.
Here is the picture of Michael that is most often used on his candles. I recommend you print it out 4 times. 1 copy is to be placed under each candle holder as each candle burns. You need 1 copy for EACH candle, total of 4 copies.
Michael’s official prayer sanctioned by the Catholic Church is:
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls.
This is the prayer I always use.
First, be sure you won’t be disturbed. Turn your phone off. If you have pets or small children be sure they are otherwise occupied. You cannot stop the process once you have begun or it won’t work. If you are having serious paranormal issues in your home be forewarned: they will know what you are attempting to do so they may act up as you attempt to perform the cleansing. Whatever happens, just keep going; and, most importantly, show NO fear. Be strong. Even before you call on him Michael will know what you are about to do and he will be with you. To be extra safe, you can pray to him the day before and tell him your plans & ask for his protection ahead of time.
Place each candle at approximately the 4 corners of your home & be SURE that if that is a closet do NOT put the candle in the closet. Sometimes you can’t get them exactly into the 4 corners so use your best judgement & place the candle as close to the corner as you can with it still being in a safe position, that means away from drafts, curtains, papers, or books – things that can catch on fire from a stray spark.
Be sure the candle holders you’re using are SAFE, meaning they are the correct size and fit for the type of candle you are using.
Once you have all 4 candles in place, go the candle that is nearest the front door or the door you use most often. You will light that one first.
Do NOT use matches. That’s sulphur & sulphur is associated with dark spirits. Use a lighter instead.
You can use incense if you want, but it’s not required. If you do use incense the best for house cleansings are any variety of sage or frankincense and myrrh (my personal favorite).
If you use the glass encased candles, they will burn for about a week if left burning around the clock. If there is to be no one at home you will have to extinguish each candle by SNUFFING it out. Never blow it out. Every flame is a fire elemental & that’s a huge insult. You can relight the candles when you return home. If you do this daily it will take longer than 7 days for the candles to consume all their wax. When relighting repeat the prayer to Michael once for each candle and again, move in the same direction as previously (instructions below).
Starting at the candle nearest your main entrance, say Michael’s prayer 3 times, then in your own words explain the problem & ask for his help.
Move on to Candle # 2, which will begin to form a counter-clockwise circle around your home. If you face the front door as you pray, the next candle will be to your LEFT. If you are facing into your home from the front door when you pray then the next candle will be to your RIGHT. Decide ahead of time which direction you will face because you must face that direction for each candle to maintain the proper counterclockwise direction throughout your home.
I tend to face the wall along which the candle is resting for a threat outside the home. The only time I face inward toward my home is if there is disharmony among family members. For this type of spell I always face outward, so like you’re looking out at the street, your side yard, and your backyard as you move around the house lighting the candles.
Say Michael’s prayer 3 times at each candle while stating your petition for his help in your own words each time.
End back at your front door (or whichever door you use the most). Open it & make a sweeping gesture outward (you may want to use an actual broom, that’s up to you and if so, position it at the front door before you start). Imagine all the negativity as gray or black smoke being swept out of your home. As you do this you can say something like,
“In the Name of ___________, I sweep out all negative energy, all evil, and all discord from my home.”
The blank is to be filled by the name of your higher power. God, Jesus, or whatever deity you call upon.
Say this NINE times while maintaining the sweeping gesture throughout.
Turn around & stand outside your door facing inward & say the following NINE times:
“In the Name of __________ I invite in all the angels, protective and benevolent spirit beings, and our spirit guides to take up residence in our home & serve to protect us from negative & evil outside influences. My home is now filled with the universal white light.”
Then you are finished. Allow the candles to continue burning. Should you have to extinguish them, upon relighting repeat Michael’s prayer just once at each candle, moving in a counter-clockwise direction around your home relighting the candles. This will recharge the candles for their original intentions. Remember to SNUFF them out if you need to extinguish them. This is easily accomplished by placing a small plate or flat object across the candle’s opening. If you are using pillar or taper candles you will need a candle snuffer and these are pretty inexpensive.
What you SHOULD notice afterward if the cleansing was a success:
the atmosphere will seem less heavy
you may actually be able to physically see more light entering your home
you may be tired, but will feel better
family members will argue a lot less, if at all
there will be a renewed sense of peace and wellbeing in your home
Should you have lousy neighbors who are constantly causing issues then you may have to repeat this spell as often as monthly. It’s a very strong spell so I definitely do NOT recommend you do this more than once a month.
If you run into problems or you feel this has not worked well for you then you may wish to contact me to perform a long distance house cleansing for you. I do this through candle work much like what you would have done if you follow my instructions here.
For situations in which the problem is at work and you cannot light candles in the workplace, simply write down the name of the business, the street address & include the name(s) of anyone being a problem and place that piece of paper under each candle. In that way you can also cleanse your place of work at the same time by proxy. The positive energies will work to cleanse your home and whatever address you stipulate on the piece of paper. Remember to write out 4 copies and place one copy under each candle.
