Ten Ways to Protect You and Your Home From Ghosts and Negative Energies

Sep 8, 2008
There are many reasons why a ghost (the soul of an individual who has died) would be drawn to a particular person, home or area and not all of them are negative reasons. Ghosts often gravitate toward energies and types of environments that are familiar to them. Because ghosts are most often mired in some type of despair, they are consistently drawn to environments where typically there is some type of stagnant energy present. You don't have to live in a dilapidated, haunted house to attract a ghost into your home, some of the nicest homes in the world will attract a ghost.

There are several things you can do to lift and protect the energy of your home and office which will lessen the chances of having ghostly visitors.

1. Smudge Your Home Every Week - Smudging is the process of burning sage and other herbs to purify the energy of a room, a building or even an individual. To properly smudge, open a window in the room you are clearing. Light the end of the smudge stick and begin to walk around the room, moving the smudge stick in the areas of the room that feel thick, negative or uncomfortable for you. As you smudge you want to hold the intention of clearing away all negative energies. You also want to say your intention out loud; perhaps something along these lines, "Clearing away all negative and stagnant energies. Surrounding us in the love, protection and prosperity of God." Smudging is an absolute necessity after conflicts and heated discussions, and after guests' visits and parties or gatherings.

2. Burn Candles with an Intention - After you smudge you want to burn a few candles, and infuse each candle with an intention. For example, you might say as you light a candle, "I intend for my house to be filled with love and kindness." Burn black candles to dispel negativity and burn white candles to infuse purity and protection. This will raise the energy of any room. Candles and smudge sticks are available at my website, Their Way Home.

3. Clean Out the Clutter - Everyone has a little bit of clutter in their busy homes, but too much clutter (particularly the kind that never goes away) creates a chaotic, stagnant vibration that can affect your ability to think clearly. Ghosts love chaos and stagnation because it reflects how they feel. They feel right at home around it. Schedule a couple of days every so often to organize your home and office. And never, ever store boxes of 'stuff' under your bed. It will ruin your sleep and can potentially give you bad dreams. Put chunks of rose quartz under your bed instead. It will surround you with love and sweet dreams.

4. Keep it Clean - Clean your home and office (dusting, vacuuming, etc.) at least once a week. Dirt and grime, aside from being unhealthy, also creates a sad vibration of chaos and confusion in your home.

5. Visit Every Room Every Week - If you live in a small home this probably isn't a problem. But if you live in a larger home, you may have noticed how the rooms that aren't used regularly can take on a stagnant and uncomfortable feeling. These empty rooms are another favorite haunt for ghosts. Try placing a living plant in these rooms so you'll have a reason for visiting these areas every few days or so.

6. Open the Windows - As often as the weather permits, open up a window and let the fresh air flow! Fresh air helps to take away negative energies and helps to raise everyone's state of mind. If you're sensitive to pollen and pollution, open the windows only when the pollen counts are low or nonexistent. Also consider investing in an air purifier and an ozone machine for better air quality whenever you need it.

7. Get Rid of Furniture You Don't Like - If you detest the dining room table you inherited from great aunt Betty, donate it to Goodwill or sell it on eBay. Being around furniture and 'things' you don't like in your home creates an energy pattern of resentment - another favorite energy pattern for ghosts.

8. Keep Gemstone Crystals in Your Home - Genuine Gemstone Crystals such as quartz, amethyst, celestite, labradorite, agate, tourmaline and many others go a long way to lifting and protecting the energy around them. Quartz literally purifies the energy of any room. And amethyst helps to transmute negative energies to positive ones. The best place to find great rocks at great prices is at any local rock show. Search the web to find out when one is coming near you.

9. Wear Gemstone Crystals - Wearing authentic gemstone crystals is a very effective way to lift your own energy, which will in turn help lift the energy of your home. Wearing quartz crystal can help purify your energy as well as the energy of the environment around you. Onyx gives calming strength and Chalcedony quiets chaotic emotions. Any gemstone jewelry is a wonderful touchstone throughout your day and is particularly supportive to you in a contentious situation.

10. Keep Salt Lamps in Your Home - Salt lamps are most often made from the salts found in Himalaya. Just like the salt water of the ocean, the protective nature of a salt lamp purifies the energy of any room. They also help to mitigate EMFs from televisions, computers and cell phones and they've been known to help migraine and allergy sufferers.
