Just as dust can build up in a house so it can in a spiritual sense. Energy can build up in the house and make it feel cramped or cluttered. When this happens the house usually falls into a state of mess and nothing ever seems to stay clean. Also, you may feel odd sensations in your home or even become ill due to a build-up of energies. Energy builds up in a house can lead to a number of problems, especially if you do dabble in the world of spells and magick.
Every thought you have and action you take creates energy. When these thoughts or actions take place in a room they imprint themselves onto that room and over time will build up. Think about how many thoughts and actions you take during a day and then imagine how much energy must be accumulated in a single room.
Not all of your thoughts are good, and that is the same with the energy that has built up, some of it is negative energy that is just sitting there infecting the area with its negativity. This can actually make you ill or make you feel upset, angry or annoyed. The clutter of energy can also be a place where entities who wish you harm will hide. These entities can become a real problem especially if you are performing black magick spells or any other type of magick. They can interfere with your thoughts, they can also cause you to lose focus and as a black magician that is one thing that you cannot afford as focus is the key to everything that we do.
This is just a few of the reasons why it is important to do an energy cleanse of your house on a regular basis. Cleaning your house and keeping it organized is a good start, but it can still leave behind unwanted energies or entities. The best way to clean your house is to use elements from nature. Open all the windows and get a stick of sage and cleanse the area. Once all the windows are open and the fresh air is blowing through, take a smudge stick (sage) and go through the house with it burning just lightly filling the air. Leaving the windows open for a bit afterward will clear out all the unwanted energy.
After doing this you will notice that your house will feel fresher and cleaner you may also notice that certain ailments that you had will disappear. If you do magick work then it is essential that you cleanse your altars after every spell in this manner, so that the energy from each spell does not build up and affect other spells.
Another form of cleansing is Spiritual Bathing. This technique can positively affect your spiritual, mental, and emotional nature by removing negative elements one may be carrying, either as a result of mundane accumulation, or via the hurtful acts of an enemy, such as a jinx, hex, or curse. Spiritual bathing techniques wash away negative conditions and open the way for positive experiences.
They may also improve physical comfort and may provide protection and increased well-being. Whether self-administered, as in a bathing rite, or administered by a practitioner, as in a spiritual foot-washing or other rituals of cleansing, hands-on spiritual bathing has strong positive effects upon the body, mind, and soul. Cleanliness is important, even more so in a spiritual sense.
