.HOUSE BLESSING
Salt & Water Incense (fire and air) Milk & Honey Oil (for anointing)
Wine (for offering) Bells, Pots, Pans, Whistles, etc.
Cast a circle in the main room (living room) and after casting, visualize the circle
expanding to include the entire house. Call upon the spirits and energies living in
the house (or apartment). Invite those who will be harmonious with the new
household and its energies to remain. Invite/ask those who will be happier
elsewhere to depart. Release all "energies" not_compatible with the new household.
(This may be expressed as a "release" in order to unbind anything that may be stuck.)
Then call upon, greet, and invite ancestors, patron deities, and all harmonious
spirits and energies to dwell in the house as they please. Gather up the pots, pans,
and all the noisemakers. Go to each door and window, not the fireplace
and dog-door, making as much racket as humanly possible--to shoo out anything
unwanted. (This is hysterical fun, and also raises lots of energy for the next
important step.) Go again throughout the house and at each portal (door,
window, etc.) sprinkle salt-water and cense, saying:
"By the Elements I purify and charge this portal."
Then anoint the portal with milk and honey, saying
"By Milk and Honey I ensure prosperity and peace within this place."
Finally, anoint the portal with oil, saying:
"With Oil I seal this portal and protect all within."
At the front door a special prayer is said, asking the guardian deities (God &
Goddess) to freely grant entry to all friends and loved ones, and to prevent
passage (turn aside) to any who would do harm."
Then, if it's a house pour wine across the width of the threshold; if it's an apartment
anoint the threshold with light touches of wine. The householders then each take
a sip of wine, leaving some as an offering to the Gods, and the Circle should be closed.
The remaining wine, milk, and honey should be offered to the Gods.

A HOUSE BLESSING
At dawn, rise and light some incense. Walk slowly through the quiet house and say
the following words while visualizing their meaning and intent.
House of stone, metal, wood, and earth
Silent one, protective one, you of the four winds
House of health, wealth, joy and peace
Guardian, sustainer, you of earth
House of stone, metal, wood and earth
Secure one, peaceful one, you of the charm
Guarded and protected you be
Cleansed and put you be
Peaceful and loving you be
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty
It is finished in beauty
Set down the incense and draw as exact a likeness of your house as you can from your
imagination. Draw it from all angles; from above, from the front, from behind. If you live in
an apartment, draw the building as well.
When finished, go outside and check your drawing. Is as accurate as you can make it?
If not, draw a new one or make changes until the drawing satisfies you. No great skill is required,
you need only make a recognizable likeness of your home.
When finished, take a white candle and a sharp knife. Cut seven evenly spaced notches in
the candle so that you create a knobbed candle. Now set the drawing down on a table where
it can remain for seven days. Set the candle on top of it and light it while visualizing your
home as blessed, safe and loving.
Let the candle burn down one notch the first day as you go about your early morning business,
then pinch or snuff out the flame and leave it until the next day.
The next morning, repeat the ritual - from lighting the incense and saying the blessing chant
to burning one candle notch. On the seventh day, after the candle has burned down all the way,
fold the drawing into a tight package and secure it with red or white cord.
Place it in a wooden box with salt and dried roses and tie the box shut with another white cord.
Finally, place the box in the home where it won't be seen or found.

A Prayer For House Blessing

Touch the lintel and touch the wall,

Nothing but blessings here befall!

Bless the candle that stands by itself,

Bless the book on the mantle shelf,

Bless the pillow for the tired head,

Bless the hearth and the light shed.

Friends who tarry here, let them know

A three fold blessing before they go.

Sleep for weariness - peace for sorrow

Faith in yesterday and tomorrow.

Friends who go from here, let them bear

The blessing of hope, wherever they fare.

Lintel and windows, sill and wall,

Nothing but good, this place befall.

A Spell For Healing Light

You will need:

A Blue Candle

Directions:

Visualize the person who needs healing. When the picture is clear in your mind, target the area of disease and color it bright red in your mind. Now, visualize tiny workers with buckets of soft green paint, brushes and rollers. Hold the picture until the workers completely cover the affected area with green. Then open your eyes and chant:

I hold you in my heart and wrap you in my love.

My circle of protection descends now from above.

And as I send this energy, all pain shall disappear.

And all the disease shall dissipate and shrivel up in fear.

The emptiness I now replace, with fresh vitality,

so you shall thrive upon the earth in laughter, love and glee.

Brightest blessings and good health, my friend,

Encase you from now on.

I ask that They watch over you and keep you well and strong.

Let the candle burn all the way out.

BLESSING A NEW HOME, HOME CLEANSING

Home-cleansing methods are of great importance in African-American hoodoo folk-magic. Here is a simple procedure for blessing a new home and ridding a house of any unwanted spiritual influences. Wash down the wood work and floors with Chinese Wash (or Van Van Oil in water) from back to front and out the front door and throw the remaining wash water out the front door or in the front yard. If there is no front yard, carry some of the wash water to the nearest street intersection or crossroads and throw it to the East. Then use a brand new broom to sweep the house from back to front and out the front door. Some folks also like to sprinkle Van Van Powder at the front threshold and sweep that away from the house. After cleaning as above, put down pinches of salt in the corners of each room or, if you are in a hurry, four pinches of salt at the four outside corners of the house.

Turn to all four points twice more and repeat each time: You are blessed

HOME BLESSING

Bread is offered to the household guardians as a libation, and the salt is kept in the heart of the home to ground any evil that might enter. After you do this, burn a purifying or protecting incense such as frankincense, cinnamon, or pepper moving it from room to room while you visualize any negativity fleeing from your home. As you go, chant over and over your words of power: Smoke of air and fire and earth Cleanse and bless this home and hearth Drive away all harm and fear Only good may dwell in here

HOME BLESSING MAGICK

A home blessing meditation for charging a room: Sit Straight with palms on lap, take deep breaths, relax, and move into a mental space where you activate your intuitive senses, Imagine a cord of energy from your spine connecting you to the Earth, and channel energy from the Earth through it, Silently ask for divine protection, guidance, and blessing, Direct your psychic sensing outward, and feel lines of force_coming out of your aura, Note where the strongest energy is (check out the floor, ceiling, directions, etc), Note spots that feel empty or dead, note places that feel full alive, focus on where you are sitting and how you feel at that particular spot, Imagine a sphere of light and love energy at your heart, feel it pulsing outward with every breath. Feel the radiance increase with every breath, feel your self as a star, continue to breathe deeply and send out the energy, letting it pulsate in the room, When ready, start making power sounds representing the love and light you are channeling; use it to amplify the light you are weaving; and fill the room with the energy, Then shift focus to sending a probe out into the room, and note the differences in the quality of energy and how you feel about it, Repeat if necessary, When done, feel the completeness of the work. A room blessing involving elemental quarter invocations: Face each direction (with arms out in appropriate elemental invoking gesture), and say, while channeling and visualizing elemental power: Powers of (say direction), Powers of (say corresponding element), We great you, we honor you, we wecome you here! Watch over and bless and protect this place. After each invocation, shape the energy into columns of light by sweeping ones arms together until they are parallel and sweeping them up and down while channeling and shaping the energy, when the energy is properly shaped; say So mote it be. After you have done all four quarters, channel in spirit energy. To return the energy to a more mellow state while energizing yourself, put your hands out and take in a bit of the energy into your self from each direction, going widdershins, hold hands to your heart and take in the energy (techniques also exist for bringing it into a stone and retrieving it when needed).

A Spell to Protect Home and Possessions

You will need:

Sage

Censer

Bell

Directions:

Perform this spell during a Waxing Moon.

Put some sage in your incense burner (censer). Walk around your home with the censer. Circle your home three times (always clockwise), then in each room of the house. Pay special attention to doors and windows and let the the smoke filter into the crevices and openings.

As you walk, recite a prayer you improvise, or write one ahead of time. Say or write what you feel. This has to come from deep inside you. It does not have to rhyme, nor be a great piece of literature.

An example would be

I invoke the Goddess of Protection,

I invoke my ancestor's spirits.

Three times around, three times about

The world within, the world without.

In home and possessions, may good spirits abound

Evil and problems will not stay around.

Ring the bell each time a circle is completed. When you are finished inside and out, place the incense in the doorway. Open all doors for a few minutes and let the smoke drift through your home, washing it clean.

Performing a Major House Cleansing

You will need:

Bucket Charcoal Tablets

Broom Censer

Mop H.B. Banishing Incense or Mistic Exorcism Incense

Dustpan Sulfur

Holy Water or Florida Water 4 White Offertory Candles

3 Blue Balls 1 cup Cascarilla

1/4 cup Ammonia Box of Table Salt

9 teaspoons of Rock Salt HB Circle of Protection Oil

1 ounce Bay Leaf A bouquet of white flowers (no carnations)

1 ounce Hyssop Herb 41 cents in change (a penny, nickel, dime, quarter)

1 ounce Rue Herb Pint of Rum

H.B. Uncrossing Oil A Gallon sized Container like an empty milk jug or pitcher

Disposable white rags A Brown Grocery Bag

1 bottle UncrossingWash or Uncrossing Bath Herbs Length of Red Cord of Ribbon to Tie at Waist

Directions:

Please read through the entire cleansing process before beginning. This ritual requires advanced planning!

When performing a major house cleansing you want to move from the top and back of your space and out the front door. If you have an attic or crawl space, begin there. Most folks like to cleanse and purify the home in a counterclockwise fashion.

It is also helpful to have at least one other person help you perform this ritual. It is physically exhausting and almost impossible to carry everything required from room to room without extra hands or a tool belt!

Creating Your Floor Wash

You can prepare your floor wash in advance.

Begin by boiling one quart of water. Add the Bay Leaf, Hyssop and Rue Herbs. Stir and boil for 9 minutes. Cover and Remove from heat. Allow herbs to steep for 9 more minutes and then strain into your gallon container.

In a separate bowl, dissolve the Rock Salt and Blue Balls in 1/4 cup of Ammonia. Add this mixture to the container also.

Now pour in the bottle of Chinese Wash (or other Uncrossing Floor Wash). Add nine drops each of Uncrossing Oil and Holy Water.

Fill the container to the top with water and mix thoroughly.

Advanced Preparations - The Pre-Clean

Spend a couple of days cleaning and organizing the home before engaging in the actual Ritual. Do the dishes, finish the laundry. Put everything in its place. Remove all cobwebs from ceilings and corners. Get those dust bunnies from under the beds and furniture. Sweep out attics and basements. Scrub out toilets, sinks and tubs. This is a great time to change light bulbs, clean draperies and wash blinds. Your house needs to by physically clean before you can make it spiritually clean.

On the evening prior to the Ritual, put a small pile of salt into the four corners of each room. Allow to sit over night.

Mapping The Cleansing

As you clean, change the water in the bucket frequently. This is why I have you mix the Floor Wash in a separate container. Try to gauge how many buckets it will take to cleanse the entire space and divide your Floor Wash up this way. Use all of it, but make sure you have enough to cover the whole space. I typically use one bucket per room.

Ideally, you want to walk each bucket out of the house and to the crossroads to dump it. Rinse the bucket outside with your garden hose. If you cannot do this because of nosy neighbors, etc., take the bucket to the curb and throw it down the sewer/storm drain. If you live in an urban apartment, you can dump the dirty water down the toilet. Neither of these are the preferred method. We like to take bad 'things' to the crossroads.

Also, you need to have an advanced plan for how you will move this water through the house. DO NOT go back through a room you have already cleaned with the dirty water.

If you have attics, basements or carpeted rooms, you can sprinkle the floor wash using the Bouquet of White Flowers. Remember: This Floor wash has ammonia and bluing in it. Be careful with your furniture, light colored carpets, dust ruffles, etc. If you have an abundance of carpet in your place, substitute Holy water and a pinch of Cascarilla in the Floor Wash for the ammonia & blue balls.

Lastly, the second half of the cleansing ritual requires you open all your windows and doors. Make plans for how to do this. Don't wait until you are in the middle of ritual to find out a window won't open or that you can't open the door without closing your pets up in another room.

The Morning Of the Cleaning - Protecting Yourself from Attack

In the morning, bathe and anoint the third eye, the navel, the bottom of feet, the wrists, back of neck and groin area with Protection Oil. You can make a Cross with the oil if you like. Use Cascarilla to coat the navel.

Tie the red string or ribbon around your waist. Put your underpants on inside out. Wear read undies if you have them. Put on light colored clothing.

Pre-Ritual Sweeping

Go through the house and open all interior doors and draperies, blinds or shades.

Begin at the top/back of space and moving from room to room, sweep each pile of salt to the center of the room and out the door. You can sweep the salt directly into a dustpan held outside the threshold of each door and place this salt in a brown paper bag or bucket.

Once you have swept up all the salt in every room, take everything you swept up that is now contained in the bag to a safe place outdoors. You can dispose of it properly later.

Beginning the Ritual - Step One

Dress 4 White Offertory Candles with Uncrossing Oil. Light one.

Go to the Front Door with the candle and make your prayers: I recommend 1 'Our Father', 3 'Hail Mary', 1 'Glory Be' and 1 Nicene Creed ( the 'I Believe') if you are Catholic. You can also say a Prayer to St. Michael for your protection while cleaning. If you are Pagan, call forth your alignments. You may want to perform the Lesser Banishing Pentagram Ritual.

Next, make a statement of your intentions to the Spirit. Let it be known that you intend yo reclaim your space for yourself and your family (Suggestions listed below).

Sit the candle on a white saucer at the front door and prepare your first bucket of Floor Wash. If you like, present it to the four directions and/or four archangels.

The Floor Wash - Step Two

Following your predetermined map, move through each room - wiping down windows, electrical sockets, faucets, drains, phones and woodwork with your white rag. Mop the floor from back of the room and out the door. Use the flowers to sprinkle floor wash under furniture, in closet corners, tops of windows and doors.

When you have finished washing down the entire place take the last bucket of water and place it with the Brown Bag of Salt from the earlier sweep.

Ritual Fumigation - Step Three

Go back in the house and Light another White Offertory Candle. Light your Charcoal and place it in the Incense Burner. Following the same path as you did when sweeping and mopping, go back through the house and fumigate each room with the Incense. You may add a pinch of Sulfur to each batch your burn. Allow the billowing smoke to reach up into cracks, crevices, corners. Make sure you fumigate behind curtains and fan smoke under furniture.

As you enter each room, allow the smoke to billow and fill the room, then open the windows and exterior doors. At this point, you will want to recite a banishing or exorcism prayer. Command all negativity and/or unfriendly beings to leave the premises (Suggestions Listed Below). Continue this process through each/room area and move yourself out the front door. Leave the incense burner and candle wax outside with the Brown paper bag and bucket of water.

Disposal of Mess - Step Four

Now you need to dispose of the Last bucket of water, the swept up salt, candle wax and incense ash. The easiest thing to do it take them to a crossroads away from your house. Light the third White Offertory Candle and pray to the Spirit that they keep all the negativity trapped there in the crossroads so that it cannot return to your home. Pour some rum and leave the 41 cents. Dump the ash, wax and salt out on the ground in a pile Over your left shoulder (if possible). Do the same with the bucket of water. Now walk away and do not look back.

If you cannot do this at the crossroads, you can perform the same disposal at either the cemetery or in running water - like a river, lake or at the ocean. If you go to the salt water, pour a sweet drink like Kola Champagne instead of rum.

Cleansing Yourself - Step Five

When you return home, walk in your house backwards. Go immediately to the bath and light your last White Offertory Candle. Make your Prayers to have any negativity removed from your body. Perform an Uncrossing Bath.

House Dressing - The Final Step

At this point, you may be tired and exhausted. However, it is advisable to redress or re-balance the energy of the house at this time. You may want to perform a simple House Blessing or House Protection Ritual.

You can move through the house in a clockwise fashion from the front door to the top/back and anoint above each window and door with a cross or protection sigil in Protection Oil. You can trace over this in Cascarilla if you desire.

Many folks use a prosperity, blessing or success floor wash and apply it in the opposite pattern that they did the cleansing. Some folks use an incense to instill the house with positive energy moving front to back and closing all the windows and doors as they move from room to room - keeping the new, positive vibe trapped inside.

At the very least, make a Blessing and Protection Prayer.

the following words while visualizing their meaning and intent.

House of stone, metal, wood, and earth

Silent one, protective one, you of the four winds

Set down the incense and draw as exact a likeness of your house as you can from your

imagination. Draw it from all angles; from above, from the front, from behind. If you live in

an apartment, draw the building as well.

The next morning, repeat the ritual - from lighting the incense and saying the blessing chant

to burning one candle notch. On the seventh day, after the candle has burned down all the way,

fold the drawing into a tight package and secure it with red or white cord.

Place it in a wooden box with salt and dried roses and tie the box shut with another white cord.

Finally, place the box in the home where it won't be seen or found.
