Lesson 327: Home Blessing Ritual

With the letter written in the previous lesson, we are to use that to bless our home with the following steps:

  • Stand at the main entrance to your home or apartment. If you have two entrances, go the one that is considered the principal entrance even if you don't use it as much or at all.

  • Read your message out loud.

  • Imagine the words washing over (purifying, cleansing) your entire home and property inside and out. Bathe them in love and sparkly golden light.

  • When you feel complete, close your eyes and visualize this love and sparkly golden light expanding out to surround and envelop the entire property.

  • Ask that this bubble of golden light act as a discerning field to filter out anything that does not serve and support your home, property, and all its occupants -- seen and unseen.

  • When you feel complete, bring awareness back to your expanded self standing at the main entrance to your home and open your eyes.

 

Do you notice a change when you do this? It may not happen straight away but allow the shift to take place and take notice.

I wasn’t home to perform this task today. I did it remotely. I followed the steps and imagined I was standing in the doorway and reading out the words I had written. I filled the home with light and let it surround my apartment building also.

I will see how the feeling of the home goes for the next few days. I would love to see the energy lifted. I guess time will tell.

Day 323 - A Year to Clear - House Blessing

Lesson 323: House Blessing

When you come in. . . may all the weight of the world fall from your shoulders.
— John O'Donohue, Bless the Space Between Us

Today we are to enter a room or just your home and say out loud the quote above. You can even add your name to the front it and notice the difference. How do you feel when you say those words out loud?

The following days has a new theme applied for “blessing your home”. To me, I feel like this is about the appreciation for the space you live in. To leave your worries behind at the door and look around at the blessings you have within the home.

When I said those words out loud, I actually felt lighter. I felt like the weight of the world was actually gone. How can words have so much impact? Maybe because I believed in them, it changed my thoughts to less stressful and into relaxation? I am not sure, but if it takes a simple practise like those words to make me feel lifted when I enter a room or get home from work, then I am going to adopt this and allow myself to let go.
