I really feel like my house could do with a good clearing. I usually use my mayan bells to do this but cant find them. Anyone have any ideas on how i could do it that wouldn't involve me buying something expensive to use.

I like to burn sage and sweet grass in my house, they are pretty inexpensive.

Sage smells like pot to me, so I'm trying rosemary next. Smudge sticks are very cheap, like $1-2... or you can buy a packet of herbs and a block of charcoal for a cpl bucks as well.

You can also use incense or burn essential oils. Or even sprinkle essential oils around the house.

Ok funny visual: Take a pot and a wooden spoon and smack it while walking around - there's your bells

My husband hates the smell of sage. Thats part of the reason I burn sweetgrass too. It smells sweet and kind of takes over the sage smell, also to invite positive energy

Where would you buy sweetgrass, could you get it at the grocery store?

Opening the windows for air flow and clapping, especially in corners, are ways I cleanse my own house. I can't stand the smell of sage or grasses so I never use them.

Here are some other ways:

Quote:
Clapping – Clapping loudly in the corners and around the perimeter of rooms loosens and breaks apart stuck energy. When you’re finished clapping, make sure to wash your hands to cleanse them of any negativity they may have absorbed.

Rattles, Drums, and Tambourines – These work much like clapping by unsticking negativity and heaviness and getting the energy flowing in a healthy way. Move throughout the space with the noisemaker, concentrating on corners, dark spots, and the perimeters of rooms.

Chimes and Bells – raise the vibrations and fill rooms with sweetness and light. Choose chimes and bells with sounds you really love. Ring or chime them at least once in each room and/or area.

Chanting – Slowly and fully chanting the sound “Om” at least three times in each room and area can gently clear negativity and powerfully lift the vibrations in each room. Make sure you breathe deeply, focus, and hold your hands at your heart in prayer position as you do so, paying attention to each part of the chant – the silence as well as each part of the sound: “ah,” “oh,” and “mmm.”

I was given a couple pieces of Osha Root. I was told it could be burned to smudge my house as well. Ive used it a few times, when my husband is around because he complains about sage I feel like the cleansing was stronger with sage, but the osha is supposed to be very protective.

You could also use a pendulum to dowse away any negative energies, negative energy thought forms, negative energy thought form shapes, and negative entities, from your energy field and home environment. Just cleanse (water/bell/smudge/incense) your pendulum, and let it spin in each of your rooms, while repeating those words either in your head or aloud. I sometimes take an incense stick - of any smell I like - around the house pointing it up particularly in corners where negative energies tend to "stick", as well. You could also ask Archangel Michael to do an energy sweep of your house and remove anything untoward. Placing amethyst or clear quartz points in the corners of any particularly negative-feeling rooms, OR the four corners of your house on the bottom floor, pointing in, also creates a web of light which cleanses and protects - failing crystals, small dishes of salt would also do it.

Hope this helps hon!
