Bring Peace and Happiness into Your Home with a Simple, Heartfelt Ritual
Whether it's a brand new house or a place you've lived for decades, a home blessing can help bring good, positive energy into your life. Your home blessing ritual doesn't have to be complicated or take much time; what you really need is an intention and a symbol to remind you of that intention.
So what is an intention? An intention is bigger than a wish and more intense than a goal. An intention is a spiritual force that sweeps outward from you and brings your message to life. First, you need to identify your desire. In the case of a home blessing, you want to encourage love and other positive emotions to fill your house. Second, you need to feel your desire in your soul. Your intention has to be something you really want! Finally, you send your intention out into the universe. Visualize your desire as a meteor, streaking out into space and bringing back your desire.
Your house blessing is a way of spiritually taking ownership or authority of your residence. Think of it this way: someone handed you a key. You decide who else gets a key. You have the power to welcome good and keep negativity out.
How you actually bless your house can vary from one person to another and from one faith to another. Here are some ideas to get you started:
After you bless your home, be sure to set a good example by bringing in some joy and love. Put on your favorite music and dance or sing, tell your family how much you love them, or bake your favorite dessert.
Blessing your home doesn't have to be a one-time thing. You may choose to bless your home each season, at the holidays, or on the anniversary of your move-in. The most important thing is to do what feels right to you!
