Spell to bless your home

Creating a magical home

Usually, creating a pleasant living space involves the careful use of decoration, color, and lighting. This spell takes the desire for an agreeable ambience one step further by giving your home a spiritual "lift." It works by removing old, stale energies and replacing them with a fresh, new atmosphere. Whether it is used to bless a new abode or for psychic "spring cleaning" your present home, this spell is guaranteed to promote a healthy, nurturing environment. 

The impulse to cleanse and bless the space in which we live has been with us since ancient times. For good luck, the Romans carried a flame from the hearth that they had left to the hearth they were going to, while the Celts were deeply superstitious about allowing a peat fire to die out. The ancient tradition of the "hearth fire" is continued in this spell, which calls upon the blessing of Vesta, Roman goddess of the hearth, and on the protection of Brighid, Celtic fire goddess, and culminates in the lighting of a candle to bless your home. The rosemary symbolizes cleansing, and is used here to sprinkle the salt water, a purifying mixture used in magic to clear away unwanted energies.  

The spell can be carried out at any moon phase, and on any day of the week, as it both banishes old energies and welcomes in the new. 

What you need:

  • Two white or cream household candles, approximately 6 inches/15 cm in length, placed in secure holders 
  • Matches or a lighter 
  • One bowl containing about 8 fluid ounces/250 ml of still spring water . 
  • One bowl containing one level teaspoon of ordinary salt . 
  • Four sprigs of fresh rosemary, tied in a bunch 

What to do:

 • Place all t he ingredients in the center of the room where people are likely to congregate most frequently (usually the dining room or living room), 

• Sit on the floor in the center of the room, and visualize a bright circle of light completely surrounding your home, 

• Light one of the household candles, 

• Lift up the bowl of water and say aloud: Water to heal and cleanse, 

• Lift up the bowl of salt and say aloud: Salt to purify and protect. 

• Pour the salt into the water, and stir it with the index finger of your writing hand until it has dissolved, 

• Stand up and lift the salt water above your head, saying; Brighid, Goddess of the healing waters, Of the flame that never falters, I drive out in your name, The spirits I no longer claim.

 • Use the sprigs of rosemary to sprinkle the salt water around the floor and walls of every room, As you are "cleansing" each room in this way. open the windows and visualize the old atmosphere leaving through them, in the form of dark smoke, 

• Close all windows and return to your "hearth" room, 

• Take the other candle in both hands, and say aloud: Vesta, Goddess of the hearth, Heart-fire of the path, I bless in your name, The home that I claim.

 • Light the candle, You should ensure that there is a lit candle in this room whenever you use it after sunset. 

You are now done and your home is blessed.
