Setting up and Preparing a Meditation Space Energetically
Cleansing Your Home And Meditation Space With Incense
Giving your home or meditation space a Energetic Cleanse can be very beneficial in so many ways.
Our house and particularly individual rooms, act a bit like a container.
It’s becomes a container of Energy.
Energy is all around us, we all have our own energy field as well as all other living thing.
When we are talking generally in conversation, we are more likely to refer to the energy of something as- Atmosphere.
We comment on whether we like the atmosphere, whether it’s a nice or uncomfortable place to be.
We light candles and okay soft music to create a nice atmosphere.
But.. Have you ever had the experience when you walk into a room straight after someone has had an argument and the saying goes-
You could cut the atmosphere with a knife?
Meaning that as you walked into that room, you could tell that something a bit heated had gone on. You could sense the atmosphere as being a bit tense and not comfortable?
What you are experiencing is the negativity that has been left behind.
You are able to feel it as you walk in to the room as you are most likely to be in a nice and happy and positive mood, which means your energy is reflecting that positivity.
When you are all positive and you directly walk into a negative energy you will feel the difference as it’s so extreme.
It doesn’t feel nice, you feel like you should probably just leave and you want to leave as soon as.
However, if you already in a bad mood, feeling angry and really negative, then you may not notice as you walk into the room that has just had an argument.
Because your functioning in a negative way and so actually the negativity from the argument fits well with your energy and so no clash!
All our moans, stresses, arguments, illnesses, bad moods anything that has a negative trace, all that gets left behind in our container of energy. our home.
By Energetically cleansing, we are dispelling the negativity and rebalancing the energy/ atmosphere with a positive.
The change can make you feel like the house is fresher, lighter and bigger.
A bit like airing the house on a spring day!
The energy and atmosphere will be buzzing with positivity and naturally you will pick up on that.
Like attracts like and before you know it, incensing can help improve your mood aswell as your living space. Positivity all round!
To Energetically Cleanse your whole home is great to do, if you can’t do the whole house for whatever reason, then the room you spend most time in or your meditation space.
You can do this as often as you wish.
Ideally if you do the whole house, it’s good to remove pets and children due to the smoke.
You can open doors and windows if needed.
How To Do A Full House Cleanse with Incense?
Light a Incense Stick and Tealight Candle in every room.
Place them as central to the room as you can, and on a safe surface.
As you light them ‘know that you are empowering the energetic cleanse of the room’
Leave them all to burn together and burn out fully.
The incense takes Approx 45mins and the tealights will depend on which ones you have.
No need to use over big ones.
If you have rooms with little spaces in, it’s a good idea to also walk around the edges of the room and into the little spaces with the incense.
Awkward and little spaces can trap energy.
Energy flows and is always moving, but in tight spaces it can become trapped and so it’s good to target those areas aswell.
There are other ways to cleanse also, but with Incense you are able to do the whole house in one go. Win Win!
I always use Nag Champa for cleansing as it’s one of the purest incense to use, but you can choose your own scent for this too.
To cleanse a space for Meditation you can light a incense stick in the area you will be sitting. Allow this to burn out or you can also sit with it whilst it’s burning. (Be careful not to inhale any smoke)
Once you have finished collect all the empty Incense and tea lights and then have a walk round your home, see if you notice the refreshing difference and the energy is cleansed.
Setting Up a Space For Relaxation and Meditation
When you are beginning to work with crystals, energy or meditation, it is always a good idea to have a space, a room or an area that you go to, this can help you to connect easier and there are ways you can make that space a positive and energised area.
Make your space special to you, you can include your favourite things, things that make you feel peaceful and relaxed. It will be different things for different people but these are some things to try.
Cleanse the energy of the room using Incense (my preference is Nag Champa ) or Smudge with a smudge stick and feather.
You can use Sound and other ways to cleanse too, but I find with incense it’s easy to do and you can instantly connect with the smell as a relaxing time.
Light some candles to create a relaxing feel to your room. You can use a candle light as a focus during Meditation also.
Music is something that also can easily set the tone and help the energies.
This will always be a personal preference but ideally something without words so you don’t end up singing along. Unless of course your Meditation includes that. .
Add Crystals to your room/ Space to cleanse and balance the energies. You can also use Crystals to hold during Meditation to help with focus and use as a healing tool.
You can add anything else that you want to, if you like Buddha’s then adding one to your space will help to make you feel peaceful as Buddha does.
Add any symbols, totems and crystals that you wish. Hematite is always a good one to have on hand to help with grounding. Good to hold or wear to help feel centred and grounded when doing energy work.
You can also include the 4 elements:
Water- glass of water
Air-Empty small bowl .
There is so much more you can do, but these tips are a great start.
