Space cleansing is not just important to do if you do any energy work but is a must in your own home to clear it of any negative or residual energy.
Any building can absorb energy which can often be negative and it will affect the energy of anyone who is occupying the space; often making you feel drained and lethargic. So if you’re lacking in energy yourself, read how to cleanse your space below.
When should you space cleanse?
- After you remove clutter
- After an argument
- When you move into a new space
- When people move out (renting/students)
- After a relationship breakup or divorce
- After illness or death
- When you buy second-hand furniture
- Anytime you need a fresh start or change
- At least twice a year
- When you feel someone has been negative in your space (even in your car)
- When you go away
- Mattresses hold energy; cleanse the bed and the room
- Your healing couch after you have done healing on a client

Preparing to Energy Cleanse
If you are just clearing your own space before a healing you can light sage to smudge into the corners or use tingshas in all corners of the room. Or, alternatively, you could use a crystal spray to spray in all four corners. Any of these are really effective and will clear the energy really quickly.
It is the intention that is the most important. You could also use tingshas in a circular motion to clear your healing couch or even a chair if someone has been sat it in.
If you know that someone is visiting, cleanse your chairs before they arrive and when they leave and, if staying overnight, the bed that they sleep in.
If you share living and sleeping space with someone who is ill or grumpy, make sure that chairs and bed are checked regularly.
Be mindful when you are staying in hotels etc. Although you cannot use smoke, you can still cleanse beds and chairs using sound or a crystal water spray. You don’t know how many people have left their energy in the bed and the room. This can often be why you may experience disturbed sleep when you stay in a hotel or a strange bed.
Everything holds energy. Even when you receive a gift from someone it will be imbued with their energy, the thought they put into it when buying it and the handling it until you receive it.
You can cleanse ornaments; nothing is bad once it’s cleansed.
Clear quartz will absorb energy; you can put some by your TV, laptop etc.
This all may sound very excessive but if in doubt check it out. You can always ask with your pendulum if a room or space needs clearing. If you don’t know how to use a pendulum, check out my blog Pendulum Dowsing in 3 Easy Steps
I absolutely love cleansing my energy space and do it every time I send energy so the rooms I spend the most time in are cleansed at least once every day and my favourite way to do it is with my tingshas, sage or incense. I also light lots of candles and have salt lamps to absorb the negative energy. It really gets me in the zone when I do my reiki and is so calming.
If you have never space cleansed give it go! I’m sure you will love it!
