your home and yourself for the onset of spring by first cleaning house the conventional way.
As you do, meditate on the
mental debris you need to clean out as well.
Then, when you're ready, take up your ritual broom, start at the front door
and sweep all
around the house, visualizing all unwanted things being swept away by your magickal broom.
return to the front door, open it wide and sweep this stuff away.
Now light a white candle and carry it around your home.

Make a circle of light before each window

and the God on your home and all who dwell within it.
A Spell to Protect Home and Possessions
You will need:
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
Mop H.B. Banishing Incense or Mistic Exorcism Incense
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,
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
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
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.
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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.
