3 Steps to Cleanse the Energy And Bless Your New Home

Denver real estate, Homeownership, Real Estate, Spirituality

When you just purchase a home, it is a great idea to clear the energy that the house may hold. Old energy may still be present even long after the house has been sold. Clearing a home’s old energy from previous owners can be good if there was a divorce that happened while a couple lived in the home, or a person living in the home had health issues, financial or emotional distress. In general, it is always a helpful option to cleanse the energy in a home.

The benefits of cleansing a home’s energy and blessing the home are to bring in new blessings, protection, and good energy to the home and all who live there. Blessing the home can help a homeowner and family to feel more relaxed, creative, and happy inside their new home. Blessing the home can bring in new financial opportunities and allow whoever enters the home to feel uplifted, safe, and the houseguests to be in better spirits than they had when they arrived. Praying over a home can also block the wrong people from entering.  Take the following steps to cleanse and bless your new home:

  1. Send Gratitude to the previous owners of the house thank the previous owners of your home for taking care of the house and also allowing you to live in the home peacefully. Metaphorically speaking you can send gratitude to the previous owners. Have gratitude for being able to live in a home that you choose.
  2. State New Intentions for your new home and seal it with a prayer  State all the intentions you have for your new house. Intentions can be to raise a happy family, create a business, create new memories, have joyful gatherings with friends and family, and feel protection. Your intention for your home can be as creative, simple, or as deep as you would like them to be. You can write your intentions down or say them out loud. If you do pray you can say: thank you for providing this house for me and my family I thank you that this home brings us the following intentions and read through your list! ricky-turner-UDnQS8qf-sg-unsplash
  3. Bring in Fresh air and Sage To Sage your new home correctly you want to start by opening at least one window in each room for an hour before you start the sage cleanse. Light a white candle to help bring in good energy and place it in any room if you have more than one candle to put in multiple rooms that’s even better . The best place to start the sage cleanse is at front door. Light the Sage. It’s best if you have a sage smudge stick.  You want to go clockwise from the front door into every room. while you are entering the front door you can start repeating your intentions/prayer that you created for your home as you walk from room to room clockwise from the front door. Make sure you sage the closets, bathrooms, and the corners of each room as well. Keep repeating your prayers as you go. Once you have covered your entire house exit your house and walk around the perimeter of your home, clockwise, and smudge the outside of your house with the burning sage. Again state your prayers and intention for your home and ask for protection and that no one with ill intentions shall enter the home. Once you finish give gratitude for the cleansing and protection of your home and enjoy the immediate and long-lasting refreshing energy that you feel. You can use sage to cleanse your home periodically to cleanse the energy in your home. If you have a stressful discussion you can cleanse and sage the room where the discussion happened. However, once your home is blessed, it’s always blessed! timothy-buck-psrloDbaZc8-unsplash

Sunday brunch at the Impérial Place La Brasserie!

Travel

Impérial Palace, Allée de l’Impérial, 74000 Annecy

Sunday brunch at the Impérial Place Brasserie is by reservation only but since I was single, I was able to get a table for one last minute after Church!!! I had the brunch buffet with the Champagne. The website says it’s 60€ but I was charged 69€. The staff was very nice, and professional. It made the difference for sure. Because of the staff I truly enjoyed myself! But as soon as I had the last drop of my very small glass of Champagne and got up to fill up my plate, when I returned to my table the Champagne glass was gone never to return. I thought for that price I would get a whole bottle of Champagne or maybe just some bottomless mimosas!!! I was shooketh!

The food was really good however. I tried to stay longer to see if I could get hungry again and get another round in but I couldn’t get there in time to feel hungry enough for gluttony to set in to validate the price!! I will be back soon I just have to save up!

Here’s some pictures I took and below some information off of the Impérial  Palace website. Rooms at the Impérial Palace hotel start at 200€ to 248€. A big Chunck of my rent for the month 😆

Inside Annecy France Sephora

Annecy, France

There’s a bodyguard in Sephora and I’ve never seen anyone that tall in the whole town. I took a quick picture of him and the store as well but it was difficult because I felt he was following me at one point. For the first time in my life I didn’t buy anything this time but I will be back for a makeup spree soon!! They had a variety of foundation shades and brands!
